Even at full price, Aerobie’s AeroPress coffee maker is easily the cheapest and easiest way to make terrific coffee, and you can grab a very rare discount on yours today.
Amazon is selling the AeroPress for $24 today, which is $6 less than it’s been selling for basically all year. The AeroPress is one of the easiest ways to make great coffee while traveling, and also a surprisingly great machine for making iced coffee as well, so you can really use it 365 days per year. [Aerobie AeroPress, $24]
Even on Black Friday, this 55” curved 4K Samsung TV is going for $2,000 at just about every major retailer. If you buy it from Adorama’s eBay storefront though, you’ll get it for $1600, plus a free Blu-ray player for good measure. [Samsung UN55JS9000 55” 4K SUHD 3D Curved LED TV + Samsung Blu-ray Player, $1600]
Update: This sold out briefly, but now it’s back in stock!
You’ll have to spend $120 upfront, but in addition to the headphones, you’ll get a $30 Visa gift card back. That’s basically as good as cash, and brings the effective price of the headphones down to $90, which would be the best price we’ve seen. [Audio Technica ATH-M50x Headphones + $30 Visa Gift Card, $120]
If you stepped on the scale this morning and decided you should start running, Amazon will sell you a pair of New Balance running shoes for just $33-$36, along with great deals on athletic apparel. [New Balance Amazon Gold Box]
Adobe’s Photoshop and Lightroom Creative Cloud photography suite normally costs $10 each month, but Amazon’s currently selling a 12-month plan for just $7 per month for Black Friday. Creative Cloud plans don’t go on sale often, so if you’re a creative professional, or just want to make your own photos look better, this is a great opportunity to save on industry standard software. [Adobe Creative Cloud Photography Plan, $7 per month]
It didn’t take long for Magnetic smartphone vent mounts to join our bestsellers club, and it’s easy to see why. They’re essentially invisible when your phone is attached, and there’s just something cool about slapping your phone onto your dashboard, and watching it stick in place. Even if you already own one, for $4, this would make a great stocking stuffer. [Aukey Upgraded Magnetic Cradle-less Car Air Vent Mount, $4 with code HFA8Z8QI]
Need more space? [Seagate Backup Plus 5TB Desktop External Hard Drive, $115]
If you don’t own a pressure cooker, today’s a great day to fix that. As part of a Gold Box deal, Amazon’s knocked the highly-rated Instant Pot IP-DUO60 down to an all-time low $79. That’s not just the best price ever, it’s actually an entire $40-$50 less than usual.
Not to put any pressure on you, but this prices are only available today, or until sold out, so be sure to grab yours quickly. [Instant Pot IP-DUO60, $79]

If you enjoy cooking, and you don’t own a KitchenAid mixer, it’s a pretty safe assumption that you want one. You can pick up a refurb of the KitchenAid Artisan mixer on eBay today in a spectrum of colors for just $170, the lowest price we’ve ever seen. [Refurb KitchenAid Artisan Stand Mixer, $170]

This discounted flash drive doesn’t look like anything special at first blush, but hit one button, and it transforms into tiny wireless media server, allowing you to pull up files on any of your devices, including phones and tablets.
That means next time you travel, you can stream movies to your tablet or store photos from your phone without filling up your device’s precious onboard storage. Today’s $30 price tag is a match for the 32GB model’s all-time low. [SanDisk Connect Wireless Stick 32GB for Smartphones and Tablets, $25]
Shopping for a Jurassic Park fan (yourself) this holiday season? For the first time, all four films (including the brand new Jurassic World) are down to just $25 in one awesome Blu-ray set. [Jurassic Park Collection, $25]
Pretty much every major cell phone carrier has phased out two year contracts in favor of device installment plans, so if you’ve got the cash to buy your phone up front, it can be worth it for the service discounts, not to mention the flexibility of owning an unlocked phone.
In honor of Black Friday, eBay pulled out all the stops, and is offering 64GB iPhone 6s’s for $719, and 128GB iPhone 6s Plusses for $900. Those are disounts of $30 and $50, respectively, and definitely the best you’ll see on unlocked iPhones.

iPhone 6s Plus 128GB Unlocked ($900) | eBay
Note: This deal is only available on the 32GB models. Find every eligible configuration here.
If this isn’t quite what you’re looking for, you can still get a Nexus 5X for $300 today. Can’t go wrong either way!
You’ll find a ton of TV deals in the “Televisions” section of our main Black Friday post, but this one was tool cool not to highlight. Other sizes are also on sale. [Samsung UN55JU6700 55” Curved 4K TV, $998]
Target has some great Black Friday deals running today, notably iPads and Apple Watches, and if you spend $75 on any order today, you’ll get a 20% off storewide coupon to use on an in-store Target run between 12/4-12/13. If you shop at Target anyway, that’s a nice extra incentive. [Spend $75 at Target, Get a 20% Off Coupon For Future Use]
For a limited time, Amazon is selling a year of unlimited cloud storage for $5 (normally $60), or a year of unlimited photo storage for just $1 (normally $12). Even if you don’t think you’ll need it, just buy it!
To clarify, you don’t need Prime to get this deal, and in fact, Prime members get unlimited photo storage automatically. That plan though only allows you to store 5GB of non-photo files (including videos), but the $5 Everything plan is truly unlimited storage for all types of files.
$50 is already a pretty insane deal for a 7” internet-connected screen that you can carry around and watch videos on, but its $15 Black Friday discount just went live, pushing it well into impulse buy territory. If you have any need for a portable “TV” screen, or a cheap gaming device for your kids, this is the best deal of Black Friday. [Amazon Fire, $35]
If you expect a little more from your tablet, the faster, sharper Fire HD 6 is also $30 off today. [Amazon Fire HD 6, $70]
You need a 4K-capable streaming box to go with your new TV, and Amazon’s new Fire TV has all the horsepower you could want, plus a $25 Black Friday discount. That’s the best deal we’ve ever seen. [Amazon Fire TV, $75]
Don’t care about 4K? The already-cheap Fire TV Stick is also $15 off right now, bringing it down to $25, or $35 with the voice remote (which you should probably get). [Fire TV Stick, $25 or $35 with Voice Remote]
In addition to being a pretty solid Bluetooth speaker, the Echo can check the weather, turn on your lights, read you the news, and even trigger custom IFTTT recipes. Hell, even if you already own one, you might want to use this opportunity to add them to your other rooms. [Amazon Echo, $149]
While tablets and big phones may have stolen their thunder, there’s still no better digital reading experience than an e-ink Kindle, and you can save $20-$30 on yours for Black Friday.
Personally, I think it’s worth spending the extra $50 for the Paperwhite’s 300dpi screen and built-in reading light, but they both have access to Amazon’s vast ebook ecosystem, so you can’t go wrong either way.

Kindle ($50) | Amazon
If you’re still jolting yourself awake with the harsh tones of an alarm clock, it’s time to give a Philips Wake-Up Light a try. It sounds hyperbolic, but these things really can improve your life immeasurably, and a pair of models are on sale for Black Friday.
Unlike unsympathetic traditional alarm clocks, Philips Wake-Up Lights ease you awake with a gradually-brightening light that simulates a natural sunrise, which is how humans are designed to wake up anyway. And of course, they’ll still nudge you awake with an audible alert when it’s really time to get out of bed. They also double as very warm and pleasant reading lights as you’re getting ready to go to sleep. I’ve owned the entry level HF3500 model for nearly a year (along with nearly 12,000 of you!), and I can definitely tell the difference when I sleep away from home and have to rely on my iPhone alarm.
If you need help deciding which to buy, the product pages have comparison charts to compare features. Basically, the high-end HF3520 bests the $72 HF3505 with more wake-up sounds, adjustable light temperature, and sunset simulation, but you can’t go wrong either way.
Philips HF3505 Wake-up Light With Radio, Black ($72) | Amazon | Clip the $10 coupon
Philips HF3520 Wake-Up Light With Colored Sunrise Simulation, White ($105) | Amazon | Clip the $10 coupon

$260 is a lot to spend on a set of dumbbells, but these Bowflex adjustable models take up way less room than a full rack of weights, and certainly cost less over time than a gym membership.
Still not convinced? They have a 4.8 star review average from over 2,000 Amazon customers, and this is one of the lowest prices ever listed. [Bowflex Adjustable Dumbbells, $260]
Pair with them a Bowflex Adjustable Bench, and its lowest price ever by far. [Bowflex SelectTech 3.1 Adjustable Bench, $99]

You know you want a drone, and now, you have an excuse. DJI’s 4K powerhouse Phantom 3 Professional is down to $1159 today, complete with an extra battery, and the still quite-capable Phantom 3 Standard is available for just $500.
I bought a Phantom 2 Vision+ (which is actually slightly inferior to the Phantom 3 Standar) for $1000 less than a year ago, so excuse me for a moment while I go cry in the corner.

In the market for a camera that’s not a smartphone or point-and-shoot? Not a professional photographer? This is your time to buy.
Sony’s a6000 boasts ludicrously fast autofocus, a great ecosystem of lenses, and a small form factor. With today’s deals, we dare so it’s in impulse buy range. Choose from a two lens bundle that will cover more range than you need it to, or a kit lens bundle with accessories and a $50 Amazon gift card.

Category-wide sales on Amazon are few and far between, and this is one of the most wide-ranging discounts they’ve ever offered: Promo code HOLIDAY30 will take 30% off any physical book they sell, up to $10.
Unfortunately, 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 likely to be the best deal you’ll see this holiday season. Just choose carefully; you can only use the code once per account.
Here are a few* suggestions to get you started (we got a little carried away in Slack), but again, this works on any book Amazon sells, so you shouldn’t have any trouble finding a use for it. Let us know in the comments what you got! [Amazon]
