The tryptophan’s worn off and you’re back at work after a long weekend, so what better way to pass the time than shopping all the best Cyber Monday deals?
We’ll be updating this post throughout the day as discounts go live, so bookmark this page, follow us on Twitter and Facebook, join our Kinja Deals Community group, and sign up for our Kinja Deals messenger bot for the latest updates!
This post will get pretty long as more deals are added, so keep an eye out for these navigation links throughout the post to jump to your favorite category.
The Nest Learning thermostat has been marked down to $199 across the board for the last few days, but the standard stainless steel color just dropped an extra $30, for some reason. We aren’t sure how long this will last, so if you have even an inkling that you might want one of these, you won’t find a better deal.
The recent release of Qi-compatible iPhones means that wireless charging pads will be popular stocking stuffers this holiday season, and we have an exclusive discount on Anker’s 10W model. iPhones can only charge at 5W right now (that’ll increase to 7.5 in a future software update), but a number of Samsung phones can already take full advantage of this pad.
Black Friday’s home networking scene was highlighted by a massive TP-Link sale on Amazon, but Cyber Monday belongs to NETGEAR. Inside, you’ll find routers, range extenders, modems, powerline kits, and more to fit any budget.
For a smallish house or apartment, the Nighthawk R6700 is a screaming-good deal at $70.
The most powerful Nighthawk X6 is marked way down to an all-time low $140, and also has a $20 coupon on the page that you can clip for extra savings. That might be a mistake, so I wouldn’t expect it to last.
If you have a large house that would benefit from a mesh networking, this is the best deal ever on NETGEAR’s Orbi system.
That’s just scratching the surface though, so head over to Amazon to see all of the deals.
Amazon partnered with Element this year to create affordable 4K TVs with Amazon’s Fire TV software and Alexa built in, and the 65" is back in stock for just $765 for Cyber Monday, $135 less than usual.
We bought the 55" one for our office pod on Prime Day, and it’s been fantastic. Gizmodo’s Adam Clark Estes is also a fan. The snappiness of the Fire TV interface makes navigating media on the PS4, Xbox One, Switch, Roku, Apple TV, and other smart TVs feel like even more of a slog, and the minimalist Alexa-enabled remote is a joy to use.
Amazon promised Sony TV deals for Cyber Monday, and they’ve delivered with all-time low prices on three different sizes. These aren’t the highest-end TVs in Sony’s lineup, but they all feature 4K resolution, HDR10 support, and smart apps to help you find 4K content to watch.
My favorite little feature though? There are cable guides built into the legs of these sets, so you can all but completely hide your wires.
Anker, purveyor of basically all of our readers’ favorite charging gear, is running a ton of great Cyber Monday deals (including some Kinja Deals exclusives!), and you can find all of the links and codes over on this post.
Cyber Monday is a great excuse to upgrade your home office or PC gaming battle station, as Amazon is running a wide-ranging sale on computer monitors, docking stations, and monitor arms for one day only.
I’ll cut to the chase here, the showstopper in the sale is Samsung’s ridiculous 49" curved, HDR, Quantum Dot-powered display for $1000, an all-time low by about $200. I want one very badly.
Otherwise, you’ll find several 16x9 and ultrawide (but not that ultrawide) monitors from a variety of manufacturers on sale, though curiously enough, no 4K models. Amazon’s also discounting their own AmazonBasics articulating monitor arms, as well as a versatile Targus docking station. Just remember that these prices are only available today, or until sold out.
Note: As of the time of this post, the SoundBuds Slim are available as an $18 Lightning deal. If that expires though, you’ll still be able to get that price with promo code KINJA379.
The SoundBuds Slim are, as you might have gleaned from the name, far smaller than the originals. Heck, they look like a small set of wired earbuds; you might never guess there were batteries and Bluetooth radios in there. Despite the size, these buds are still rated for seven hours of battery life, and recharge fully in just 90 minutes.
Saliva-based ancestry DNA tests won’t tell you if you’re related to Queen Elizabeth or anything like that, but they’re fun, and make great gifts, so you may want to pick one for an all-time low $55 today.
Apple’s 12" MacBook is one of the thinnest and most travel-friendly laptops out there, and you can get the 2016 model with 512GB of storage and an upgraded Core M5 processor for $1000 from Amazon today. Or, if you really want a 2017 model, they start at $1100 from Best Buy, but those won’t have as much storage. The 2016 is my official work laptop as of a few months ago, and I absolutely love the thing, especially for travel.
Cyber Monday’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.
Alternatively, you could get two white bulbs, a bridge, and a Hue motion sensor for $67.
If you really do want the classic Hue colorful bulbs, they’re on sale for $32 each, which is easily the best price we’ve ever seen.
Hue can also accent your molding, or go under your kitchen cabinets with the Hue LightStrip Plus, which has never been this cheap before.
Brother is our readers’ favorite printer brand and it’s easy to see why: they basically never jam, the toner is relatively cheap, and it relatively prints fast (up to 27 pages per minute). The one trade off is that they don’t print in color, which when I think back to the last couple of things I’ve printed, it’s been a bunch of boring forms, so I don’t think it would be too hard of a pill to swallow.
Plus, this HL-L2340DW includes the ability to print from your mobile device. At $76, it’s just a few bucks away from the lowest price we’ve seen for this model and it might sell out, so what are you waiting for?
Today only for Cyber Monday, Amazon is offering up this 900 watt/1500-volt CyberPower UPS for just $120, or about $60-$100 less than its usual price.
If you use a desktop computer, this will of course keep your machine running without any interruption in the event of a power outage, which means you won’t lose any unsaved work. But even if you only use laptops and mobile devices at home, this could still run lamps, your router and modem, or even a TV until the power comes back on.
Just note that this is a Gold Box deal, meaning this price is only available today, or until sold out.
The SmartCharge is a Bluetooth FM transmitter that takes the Bluetooth signal from your phone, and rebroadcasts it the FM radio station of your choice, giving you truly wireless audio and handsfree calls in older vehicles that don’t have Bluetooth built in. And since this is an Anker brand, you also get two high speed USB charging ports.
We’ve seen plenty of products that do this before, but the SmartCharge has one more trick up its sleeve: a car finder. Once you turn off your car and Bluetooth disconnects, the Roav app will drop a pin on a map, and help you find your vehicle later. You probably don’t need that feature very often, but it could come in handy on confusing city streets, or sprawling stadium parking lots.
Eero basically invented the mesh router market, and their newest wireless system is a marked improvement from the already impressive original.
Amazon’s currently offering the Eero 3-pack (one base station and two beacons) for $297, or the base station and one beacon for $212, both all-time lows. The Eero base station is basically a small but powerful Wi-Fi router, while the beacons plug straight into the wall and work with the router to create a strong mesh Wi-Fi signal throughout your entire house. They also double as night lights, if you weren’t already sold on them.
Not quite what you’re looking for? Don’t miss Amazon’s Cyber Monday NETGEAR sale.
Yi, manufacturer of your favorite affordable action cam, also makes a home IP security camera, and you can pick it up two for just $40 today with promo code XQYCWE2T, the best per-camera price we’ve ever seen. (Note: You have to add two to your cart manually).
Note: There’s currently a $20 Lightning deal running on this camera, but once that expires, the 2-for-$40 is still a great deal.
The Yi Home Camera includes all the basic features you’d expect, including two-way audio, automatic activity alerts to your phone, and remote monitoring. You can look in live on your home at any time, sign up for Yi’s cloud DVR service for remote recording, or—and this is a key difference from a lot of security camera—record directly to a microSD card for free.
With its 24 hour battery life, iumpressive bass, and crystal clear sound quality, the Anker SoundCore has long been our readers’ favorite affordable Bluetooth speaker, and its water-resistant speaker is down to its best price ever today with promo code KINJA989.
The SoundCore 2 still includes dual drivers and that amazing 24 hour battery; the only real differences are a slightly tweaked design and the aforementioned water resistance. That means you can take it to the pool, the beach, or even the shower without fear. Yes, that code is only for $1 off, but the $32 list price is already an all-time low, and $8 less than usual.
Range extenders aren’t a cure-all for your home network, but if you have one or two spots in the house that just doesn’t get good reception, they’re an inexpensive way to fill in the gaps. This model from TP-Link has great reviews, and at $30, it’s never been cheaper
I’m still periodically amazed that 8TB external hard drives exist, and you can get one for $142, by far the best price ever for this capacity, and a must-buy if you have a lot of movies, photos, or PS4/Xbox One games to store.
It’s the best time of year to buy a Fitbit, as most of the lineup is on sale for Black Friday. Fitbit Alta HR for $100 is probably the one you want to buy, unless you’re interested in a full-featured smart watch, in which case the Fitbit Ionic comes with a $50 Amazon gift card today. For the rest of the deals, head below.
- Fitbit Ionic | $300 | Amazon | Plus $50 gift card
The ultimate gift for the person who has everything is 20% off today.
Power Practical’s Sparkr is a 400 lumen flashlight, an LED camping lantern, and a badass plasma lighter all rolled into one. I suspect you’re most interested in the third item on that list, so let’s dive in:
Just press one button, and an electric arc forms on the backside of of the flashlight that can light small items on fire, even in the wind. This spark is created with the same battery that powers the light, so unlike a traditional lighter, there’s no butane required. That makes it handy for camping, backyard s’mores nights, or just lighting candles around the house. Plus, it’s just cool as hell, nobody denies this.
The GoPro Hero5 Session is about as small as an action cam can possibly be, and yet it shoots gorgeous 4K/30 footage, and is as rugged as they come. It normally sells for $299, but Amazon’s marked that down by $50 today, and they’ll throw in a 16GB microSD card and a headstrap mount too.
If you want the touchscreen control of the full-sized Hero5, it’s currently bundled with a $50 Amazon gift card.
Of course, the GoPro HERO6 just came out, but unless you really need to capture 4K/60 footage, it’s probably not worth the price premium compared to these deals.
Amazon’s first-party gadgets are always hot commodities come the holidays, and all of their Cyber Monday deals 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.
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.
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.
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.
The previous generation model is also on sale for $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.
If price has been the barrier to entry keeping you from better audio, here’s the first opportunity since Prime Day to grab Status Audio’s CB-1s for their lowest price ever, $55, beating the previous best deals by $8.
Status is a direct-to-consumer headphone company, building great cans in proven form factors without the markup that comes with popular brands. In fact, there’s no branding here whatsoever.
The CB-1s have a (relatively) flat frequency response that’s great for listening to a variety of music or audio/video editing, with a wide sound stage in a closed back design. I get good isolation/seal with the updated pads. The inclusion of two detachable cables- coiled and straight, is also generous and welcome. Even better that they smartly attach with a twist lock.
We know from five years of Kinja Deals that great over-ear, closed back headphones for under $60 is no joke. Depending on what you’ve shelled out for in the past, they might even blow away your much more expensive pairs.
The Greenco G Pen Elite was already one of the best vaporizers for the money at its usual $150, but for Cyber Monday, you can get it for an all-time low $85 with promo code KINJA-BFCM.
Or, 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.
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.
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.
LG’s OLED TVs seem to have cor
