#1: Amazon Gadgets
Amazon’s first-party gadgets are always hot commodities come the holidays, and all of their Black Friday deals (that we know of) are available now.
Amazon’s breakthrough Echo smart speaker has spawned an entire family of products, and a whole bunch of them are down to all-time low prices for Black Friday, including a $20 discount on the brand new flagship Echo, a $30 discount on the smart home-ready Echo Plus, and a whopping $50 discount on the touchscreen Echo Show.
The full-size (and 4K-compatible) Fire TV isn’t discounted, but the compact and very capable Fire TV Stick is impulse-priced at $25.
Amazon’s tablet deals continue to defy belief, with the Fire 7 checking in at $30 for Black Friday, the Fire HD 8 available for $50, and the Fire HD 10 priced at $100, all all-time lows. The 7" Fire tablet would be a fine gift for a kid that’s not too picky, by the 8" model is definitely worth the extra $20 for 50% more battery life, twice the built-in storage, and a better screen. The 1200p Fire HD 10 would be a great portable TV for anyone, regardless of age.
The two entry level Kindles are both $30 off, with additional savings available on Kids and Essentials bundles. Our advice - get the Paperwhite. The extra $40 is well worth a screen that’s twice as sharp, and includes a backlight. If you don’t mind buying a refurb, you can also get the Kindle Voyage, complete with an ambient light sensor and pressure-sensitive page-turning bezels, for $120.
Amazon only came out with the Cloud Cam about a month ago, but that won’t stop them from offering a $20 discount.
Amazon’s entire selection of Dash buttons is 50% off, bringing them all down to $2.50. The first time you use them though, you’ll still get a $5 account credit, so you actually stand to (sort of) make money here.
#2: Philips OneBlade
The Philips Norelco OneBlade is the shaver of choice for every guy on our staff, and Amazon’s offering an unprecedented 50% discount on it for Black Friday.
If you aren’t familiar with this thing yet, Shane shared his thoughts about it on Lifehacker Gear:
I’m pretty blown away by the Philips OneBlade. I was expecting a deconstructed electric razor or a souped up Gillette Power-style situation, but the OneBlade is more like the next evolution of beard trimmers.
The OneBlade can be used to get a close shave, edge, or trim down to your preferred length. It’s also washable and rechargeable, and the replaceable blades that last an estimated four months are already available on Subscribe and Save.
The OneBlade can be used in the shower or over the sink, with or without shaving cream or oil. To be clear, this is not going to give you a straight razor-close shave, but it’s going to get you 99.5% of the way there in no time and with no irritation.
The OneBlade usually sells for $35, and occasionally sees modest discounts to $25-$35, but $17 blows away every previous promotion. I paid full price for it back in March of this year (I’m still on my original blade, for the record), and have zero regrets.
#3: Rare SONOS DIscounts
It’s the most wonderful time of the year...to buy Sonos stuff. A bunch of the high-end audio gear is on sale for Black Friday, including the first ever discount on the Alexa-equipped Sonos One, $50 off the still-great PLAY:1 and PLAY:3, and $100 savings on the PLAYBAR and PLAYBASE.
#4: Anker Discounts Galore
After teasing us with some appetizers earlier in the week, Anker just opened up the floodgates on their Black Friday deals, including several that our exclusive to our readers.
There are too many deals to include them all here, but head over to this post for a complete roundup.
#5: Annual NEst Deals
Nest’s iconic thermostats don’t go on sale often, and sizable discounts their other products are even rarer still, so Black Friday really is the best time of year to join the ecosystem, or expand your collection. Save $50 on the third generation Nest Learning Thermostat, $20 on the Protetct smoke detector (both the battery and wired versions), $50 on the outdoor Nest Cam, or $60 on the indoor one.
#6: Xbox One S Bundles
If you’re looking to grab an Xbox One S this holiday season, Microsoft has a ton of selection, and great incentives. Pretty much every console bundle is discounted by $50, with prices starting at a paltry $189, plus you get to pick an extra game of your choice, albeit from a fairly uninspiring selection.
#7: Philips Hue Lights
Black Friday’s here to brighten your day with an array of Philips Hue smart lighting deals.
In my opinion, the Hue White starter kit for $60 is a better way to get started than the more popular color bulbs. Most people won’t turn their living room various shades of blue, but everyone can benefit from regular light bulbs that you can control with your phone or your voice. This kit gets you four bulbs and a Bridge, which can support up to 50 Hue products.
If you really do want the classic Hue colorful bulbs, they’re on sale for $32 each, which is about as cheap as they ever get.
Hue can also accent your molding, or go under your kitchen cabinets with the Hue LightStrip Plus, which has never been this cheap before.
#9: $5 off Book Orders
For the first time since Prime Day, Amazon’s offering a sitewide discount on all physical books they sell; save $5 on any order of $20 or more with code GIFTBOOK17.
Just like previous, similar deals, this deal excludes Kindle titles and audiobooks, but if there are any commemorative coffee table-type books or collector’s editions that you’ve been eyeing, this is a great opportunity. Just choose carefully; you can only use the code once per Amazon account.
You can buy multiple books to meet the $20 threshold, but here are a few $20+ suggestions to get you started. Again, this works on any physical book Amazon sells (shipped and sold by Amazon directly), so you shouldn’t have any trouble finding a use for it. Let us know in the comments what you got!
#10: Rare Zappos Sale
Zappos is basically a one-stop shoe destination already, but right now, they’re having an actual sale, something they haven’t done in years. It’s ending on Saturday, so you’d better hurry and grab discounted shoes and apparel from Columbia, Sam Edelman, Frye, SOREL, Asics, Nike, The North Face, Hunter and more for men and women. And, if you’re part of their rewards program, get free expedited shipping on the over 70,000 items on sale.
#11: Gaming Controllers
Whether you already own a game console, or you’re buying a new one today, it never hurts to grab some extra controllers for under $40. The Xbox One S gamepad is on sale for $40 in both black and white, while the DualShock 4 is $38 in a whole array of colors.
#12: Sony Headphones
Sony’s WH1000XM2s put the noise-canceling headphone world on notice when they were released earlier this year, and now, you can get them at a discount for the first time ever. They’re still an investment at $298, but if you spend any significant amount of time in planes, trains, or just a noisy office, they’ll probably be the best thing you buy this year.
Last year’s model is also down to $228, though its battery only lasts 20 hours compared to 30 on the new one, and its noise-cancelling engine and sound quality aren’t quite as good.
If these are out of your price range, Sony’s extra bass noise canceling cans are also on sale for $123. They won’s sound nearly as good, and don’t have all the advanced features of the 1000XM2s, but that’s still a great deal.
#13: Clear The Rack+
In a twist of fate, Nordstrom Rack is having a clearance sale for Black Friday that’s even better than Clear the Rack. Starting today and going through Monday, you can get an additional 30% off Nordstrom Rack’s entire sale section, which is chock full of designer clothing in all styles.
You need jeans. Everyone needs jeans. Right now, get some from premium brands like Levi’s, NYDJ, J Brand, 7 For All Mankind, and more for a lot less during Amazon’s one-day sale. The best part is that these pricey premium brands are mostly marked down to under $100.
#15: BOGO 50% Off vinyl
Need the perfect gift for the pretentious music lover in your life? How about BOGO 50% off vinyl records? This seems to apply sitewide on Amazon for any vinyl shipped and sold by Amazon.com directly, so just find two albums, stick them in your cart, and enjoy the discount.
Need some inspiration? Our readers voted on their must-own albums a few months ago, and let me tell you, people had opinions.
Need something to play them with? Amazon’s also running a Black Friday sale on select record players.
#16: The Best Deal In Vaping
The Greenco G Pen Elite was already one of the best vaporizers for the money at its usual $150, but for Black Friday, you can get it for an all-time low $85 with promo code KINJA-BFCM.
Of, for just $66 with the same code, you can also opt for the smaller G Pen Pro, which should perform similarly, but with a smaller chamber capacity and less precise temperature adjustment. Either way, these deals aren’t available for long, so get in before they go up in a puff of smoke.
From Gizmodo’s review:
“Pleasant” has come to define much of my time with the Grenco G Pen Elite. It charges quickly via USB and has battery life that last for days of regular use. It also feels great in my tiny hands and fits easily in a coat pocket or a purse. The thing that takes it from “perfectly pleasant” to near outstanding is the price. It’s just $170. That’s damn cheap compared to it’s competitors. The Firefly 2 costs $329.95 and the Crafty retails for $339. Sure those products heat via convection instead of roasting a ceramic chamber, they’re much easier to pull on, and the clouds they produce are enough to fishbowl someone sitting with you, but for nearly half the price the Grenco G Pen Elite is a fantastic deal.
#17: Roku Streaming Stick +
The Roku Streaming Stick+ packs more features than you’d ever think was possible in such a small dongle. You get 4K, HDR, advanced Wi-Fi, a voice remote, basically anything else you could want in a larger streaming box. It’s only about a month old, but you can already get it for $48 for Black Friday, a ~$20 discount.
#18: ThinkGeek Black Friday
ThinkGeek is helping the nerds in your life get ready for the holidays. Score up to 75% off of a ton of products and apparel during their Black Friday Sale. There are seriously hundreds of items to choose from, which means every corner of geekdom is covered by this sale.
#19: Flash Storage
Yesterday’s big SanDisk sale is expired, but a few items remain at or near their all-time low prices for Black Friday, including some microSD cards that’ll work with your new action cam or Nintendo Switch.
#20: WeMo Switches
WeMo products have long been the simplest way to get started with home automation, and both the light switch and mini smart plug are on sale for all-time low prices today. These are dead simple to use, and allow you to control any light fixture or power outlet with your phone, IFTTT recipes, or even Alexa.
#21: Sous Vide Circulators
Anova dominates the sales charts, but in many ways (raw heating power, looks, size, software quality), the Joule sous-vide circulator is actually the superior product, and Amazon’s running an unprecedented $30 discount on it for Black Friday
The Joule White is actually a new model of the Joule, swapping the original’s stainless steel top and base with white plastic to match the rest of the unit. Otherwise, it’s exactly the same as the Joule White/Stainless, and usually retails for $20 less at $179. Today’s Black Friday sale though is a great chance to save a bit more.
The steel version is also $30 off, but at $169, there’s really no reason to buy it over the white model, unless the white sells out.
If you don’t have any idea what I’m talking about or why you might want to buy this, Lifehacker has a great sous-vide explainer here. Spoiler alert: It’s incredibly simple, and the results are fantastic.
#22: Artificial Christmas Trees
It’s FINALLY that time of year where it’s socially acceptable to have a Christmas tree up in your house. If you’re in the market for a new artificial one, Amazon is discounting a bunch of trees made by National Tree. These are top-of-the-line trees that look convincingly real and come in a variety of tree species. Most of these are at or very near their all-time low prices so get yourself one of these and go ahead and blast that Christmas music.
#23: Super-Fast SSDs
An SSD is the best upgrade you can give your older computer, and Samsung’s 850 EVO line is the most popular one there is. A worldwide NAND shortage has reversed the previously inexorable downward price trend on these things over the past year or so, but today on Amazon, the 250GB, 500GB, and 1TB models are all down to the best prices of the year.
#24: Rare Coffee Deals
Keurigs and drip coffee makers are convenient, sure, but the coffee they produce can’t hold a candle to what you’ll get from these discounted gadgets.
First up, the legendary Aerobie Aeropress is down to $24, an extremely rare discount from its usual $30. Even at full price, it’s easily the cheapest and easiest way to make terrific coffee, and it would make a great gift for any coffee lover. It also has one of history’s all-time great product videos.
While you’re at it, we highly recommend picking up a reusable stainless steel filter to go with your new toy. It’s only $9, and it’ll pay for itself over time.
If, like me, you prefer the smoothness and concentration of cold brew, OXO’s Cold Brew maker is also $10 off today, down to $40. Just add coffee, add water, and walk away. You can read Shane’s review of it on Gear, and also see a video of how it works.
