Amazon’s blown right past the standard $50 Black Friday Xbox One discounts, and marked the 1TB Battlefield 1 bundle down to $255 ($45 less than Black Friday), and the 500GB Minecraft model down to $212 ($38 less).

Update: Don’t want Minecraft? Grab a Battlefield 1 Bundle with 3 months of Live for the same price.

You could make a strong case that Microsoft’s $50 discount + $25 gift card + bonus game offer is a better deal, but if you don’t want any of the additional games, or just want to spend as little upfront as possible, these are the best prices we’ve ever seen.

If only the best will do, you can save $60 on a bare PS4 Pro console today on Target (discount shown at checkout). That beats a $40 pre-Black Friday discount, and is the best deal we’ve seen on the world’s most powerful game console.

Update: Sold out, but the eBay deal which includes two bonus games for $250 is still available.

You can also get the bundle without any extras for $212 from Amazon.

Amazon just kicked off the best PS4 Slim deal we’ve seen to date: A $50 discount, plus a $50 Amazon gift card thrown in on top.

PS4 and Xbox One controllers were both marked down to $39 for Black Friday, but they just dropped an additional $5 to $34, the best price we’ve ever seen. In both instances, these are the new models, which means built-in Bluetooth and an improved palm grip on Xbox, and a front-facing light bar and wired gaming support for the DualShock 4.

Update: The Xbox One and PS4 controllers are both back up to $39 now, the same as Black Friday.

If only the best will do, the drool-worthy Xbox One Elite controller is also down to $127, from its usual $150.

Ready to build out a surround sound system, and don’t want to take the easy way out? Amazon’s deeply discounting a selection of Pioneer speakers in today’s Gold Box. You can buy the pieces you need individually, or opt for bundles (but note that you don’t actually save any extra by bundling), just remember that you’ll need an AV receiver to run these.

Update: Now down to $21

If you waited until now to buy No Man’s Sky, you’re probably feeling pretty smug, and rightfully so. The game just got a massive update that addresses many of its initial shortcomings, and you only have to pay $25. This was available briefly for $20 at various points over the holiday weekend, but this is still a solid price, especially considering the new content.

If you’re still listening to any of your TVs through their built-in spekaers, this 29" VIZIO sound bar is fantastic upgrade for $68.

Without a subwoofer, this might not be ideal for a main home theater sound system, but it’d be just fine for, say, your bedroom TV. And when your screen’s turned off, it’ll also work as a massive Bluetooth speaker for playing music from your phone. Today’s price is $10 less than usual, and an all-time low.

SSDs are obviously great upgrades for PCs with spinning hard drives, but it’s also really easy and affordable to turn one into a high performance external drive. Crucial’s MX300 525GB SSD is marked down to $100 today, an all-time low.

The 750GB version of this SSD was available for the same price on Black Friday for what seemed like 10 seconds, but that was such an aberration, it shouldn’t deter you from this deal.

Today only, Amazon’s offering big discounts on over a dozen Nerf guns and accessories, plus other toys like Furby Connect and Play-Doh. So what are you still doing here?

If your home network is still based on older 802.11n technology, if you’re still paying a modem rental fee to your ISP, or if you’re sick of dealing with wireless dead zones, there’s a Cyber Monday deal just for you today.

Inside, you’ll find over a dozen NETGEAR products, including routers, modems, range extenders, powerline kits, and ethernet switches, all marked down to great low prices.

The standout product here is probably the Nighthawk R6700 for an all-time low $88, and which as of this writing also has a $20 coupon available on the page, though that may be a mistake.

If you want to clear up a wireless dead zone in your home without spending a ton of cash, you’d be hard pressed to find a range extender for less than $24, particularly one with over 14,000 mostly positive reviews.

That’s just scratching the surface though, so head over to Amazon to see the rest of the deals.

Today only for Cyber Monday, Amazon is offering up this 900 watt/1500-volt APC UPS for just $130, or about $60-$75 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.

Well this sure is exciting: Target’s celebrating Cyber Monday by taking a flat 15% off nearly everything they sell (exclusions here). Plus, REDCard credit and debit card holders can save an extra 5%. Obviously, there’s no shortage of great deals to be had here, and we’ll be sifting through the best ones throughout the day, but let us know what you found in the comments!

Amazon seems to be price matching a lot of big ticket items, including Fitbits, game consoles, and Nest products, and we expect them to add more throughout the day. Stay tuned to Kinja Deals on Twitter for the latest updates.

Nobody, I repeat, nobody, will be upset to get a five pound bag of Haribo Gold Bears for the holidays. You don’t even have to tell them it only cost you $10.

Also, fear not, these aren’t the sugar free ones that famously do horrible things to you body. Although, that would be a great gift for your enemies.

Vizio’s 5.1 channel sound bar systems are the simplest way to add surround sound to any home theater setup, and both the 38" and 40" models are back on sale for Cyber Monday.

Advertisement

Update: The 38" model is $180 on Best Buy, with an extra $25 off if you use Visa Checkout.

We saw better deals over the summer on the 38" model, but this is the first significant discount we’ve seen in months. The 40" model, in addition to being, you know, 2" longer, also includes HDMI audio input and metal accents, and $297 is the lowest it’s been since last Black Friday.

Update: Now back up to $35

Overwatch for $35 was one of the first good Black Friday deals to go live this year, but if you made the mistake of skipping it, your procrastination was rewarded this morning, as it’s now down to $33. Seriously, there’s no reason not to buy this if you don’t already own a copy.

Update: The PS4 version sold out on Amazon, but it’s available for $35 at Walmart.

You know the guy that writes The Oatmeal webcomics? He made a card game, and it became the most-backed project in Kickstarter history, as measured by number of individual backers. If you weren’t one of them though, Amazon’s taking $3 off NSFW edition today. I can’t think of a better way to pass the time with your family over the holidays.

Whether you’re looking to start a podcast, or just want your Skype calls to sound better, the Blue Yeti is one of the most popular mid-range USB microphones you can buy.

If you missed Amazon’s $90 Gold Box deal earlier this week, you’ve got another chance today, this time on the murdered-out Blackout edition, which actually wasn’t included in said Gold Box.

If your gaming mouse or headset could do with an upgrade, several popular Logitech peripherals are on sale on Amazon right now, including the G600 MMO mouse (one of your five favorites), and the G930 surround sound headset (ditto).

Eero’s mesh routers were the standout networking deal of Black Friday, but they’re probably overkill if you live in a relatively small apartment or home. The Wirecutter-recommended TP-Link Archer C7 though is one of the best “traditional” routers you can get, and it’ll only cost you $70 today. If you have a friend or family member that’s plagued by terrible Wi-Fi, this will be their favorite gift of the year.

Say your wireless router can’t push a strong signal to every corner of your house, or maybe you own some kind of old set top box that needs an ethernet connection, but doesn’t live near the router. A simple powerline adapter is one of your best options for extending a home network, and you can get a great one for just $30 today.

Pretty much every retailer under the sun has been running flat $50 discounts on every Xbox One S bundle for the last few days, but now, Microsoft’s sweetening the pot with a bonus $25 gift code, plus an extra game of your choice.

Unfortunately, the game selection is pretty limited, but it includes solid choices like Forza Horizon 2 and Far Cry Primal, so this is a great way to start your collection.

Update: Now $699 + $100 gift card at Microsoft.

Microsoft was already running a promotion that netted buyers a $100 gift card with Vive purchase, but now Amazon is offering up a straight $100 discount, the first cash discount they’ve offered.

PS4 and Xbox One owners can book their ticket back to Skyrim for $25 today, complete with all of its DLC, and even mods. Not bad considering the special edition is less than a month old.

Steam’s hardware Black Friday discounts are officially live, with the Steam Link dropping all the way down to $20, its lowest price ever by $15, and the Steam Controller matching its all-time low price of $35.

Update: The Steam Controller Wireless Receiver is also on sale for $9.

Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare and XCOM 2 are both down to their Black Friday prices already, joining the previously-mentioned Overwatch and Borderlands: The Handsome Collection.

Infinite Warfare will set you back $40 on PS4, Xbox One, and PC, which is pretty great considering the game’s only a few weeks old, while XCOM 2 is marked all the way down to $30 on both major consoles.
