Cyber Monday starts tomorrow, November 28. But there are already thousands of deals to check out online this weekend. We’re covering the Cyber Monday sales live, bringing you all the latest news and discounts, plus expert tips and tricks from across the TechRadar team for finding the best products at the lowest prices.
If you’re just looking for a list of the very best offers, head over to our best Cyber Monday deals page – we’re busy keeping that up-to-date with the latest discounts on everything from TVs and coffee makers to toys, home and beauty items. Otherwise, stick with us and follow the action here as it happens.
Amazon was the first major retailer to switch its deals from Black Friday to Cyber Monday yesterday. Best Buy is also now running its Cyber Monday sale, with 50% off all manner of products, but Walmart doesn’t go live until midnight tonight.
So far the deals themselves are largely the same ones we’ve seen all week – and we’re not expecting to see many dramatic prices drops tomorrow, other than on products retailers are desperate to shift, and they’re not necessarily the ones we’d recommend. Still, there’s always an element of unpredictablily – so stay tuned…

TechRadar deals editors Alex Whitelock and James Pickard are running our Cyber Monday deals live blog right now. But you’ll find tips, tricks, and expert product insight here from the whole TechRadar team to help you grab the gear and gadgets you want at the lowest possible price.
We’re busy searching all the top retailers for discounts on the top-performing tech, home, fitness and wellness products that have made it through our tough testing process. Sometimes we’ll surface great deals here on interesting items that we haven’t tested, too (we’ll tell you when we haven’t used a product ourselves.) And if we can find a better offer on the same product at another retailer, we’ll share that as well.
Good morning all! We’re kicking off our Cyber Monday deals coverage for 2022 a little earlier this year, giving plenty of time to find any highlights – and post a couple of our favorite holdouts from yesterday’s sale.
Get Sony’s five-star earbuds for the lowest price ever
The excellent Sony WF-1000XM4 true wireless earbuds are on sale at Amazon as part of the retailer’s early Cyber Monday sale – for the lowest price we’ve ever seen.
We awarded these top-tier, class-A Sony buds the full five stars in our Sony WF-1000XM4 review. They deliver stunning sound quality, strong active noise cancellation and a solid eight hours of battery life.
If you’re looking for a deal on some of the best noise-cancelling earbuds ahead of Cyber Monday, then we don’t expect this price to be beaten on the day itself. Snatch them up while you can.
Sony WF-1000XM4: was
$279.99 now $178 at Amazon
Cyber Monday offers like this don’t come along very often. We briefly saw them dip to $198, but this is a whole $20 cheaper than we’ve ever seen them. Sony’s immersive LDAC, excellent ANC, eight hours of battery life from just the earbuds and stunning five-star sound quality all for $100 off the RRP? We’ll take it. View Deal
This weekend is a great time to buy a MacBook
If you’re in the market for a MacBook Air, you’re in luck: the 13-inch M1 model from 2022 plummeted in price to just $799 a few days ago and it’s still looking like this amazing $200 deal is sticking around for Cyber Monday. For the record, this is the lowest price yet on this fantastic ultrabook.
Even though the 2020 model has been superseded by the more powerful (and more expensive) new MacBook Air M2 (2022), it still sits at number three in our best laptops guide.
We gave it 4.5/5 stars in our Apple MacBook Air (M1, 2020) review: its performance is incredible thanks to the powerful M1 chip, and the battery life is excellent. It’s easily the best value laptop money can buy right now, and a great choice for work or school. It’s also great for watching movies.

MacBook Air M1 (256GB): was
$999 now $799 at Amazon
We very rarely see the MacBook Air this low so now is the time to buy if you’re interested in the excellent Apple laptop. It equals the record-low we’ve seen in previous years. This top-of-the-line device features Apple’s powerful M1 chip and premium chassis – and sits as TechRadar’s best value-for-money pick in our best laptop guide.View Deal
Super-low Nintendo Switch OLED bundle alert – but not at Amazon
This one isn’t in the Amazon Cyber Monday sale, but we think it’s too good to miss…
If you have a Nintendo Switch already and know you mostly play in handheld mode, or you think that’s how you’ll use it if you buy one, the Nintendo Switch OLED is an upgrade that’s well worth considering. Its larger, brighter screen is a marked improvement over the original Nintendo Switch and Nintendo Switch Lite.
The console itself is going for the historic low price of $349 at Amazon, but this bundle deal at Dell is excellent value if you’re looking to set yourself up with some games and accessories. For $399.99 you can get the console, a third-party Switchplate controller and a copy of Splatoon 3 – one of the best first-party games on the Nintendo Switch.
Nintendo Switch OLED + Splatoon 3 + controller: was
$439.99 now $399.99 at Dell
Save $40 – This is an excellent deal for the flagship Nintendo console. Considering the bonuses of Splatoon 3 and a Switch plate controller, you don’t want to miss this discount. View Deal
Today’s sales – where do they stand?
We’re in the awkward period right now between Black Friday and Cyber Monday, with some retailers – notably Amazon – having already switched their headline banners over to the latter sale. Basically, the vast majority of deals that are available today are holdouts from the earlier sale, which is generally what we expect these days.
Over the past few years, we’ve seen these big seasonal one-day sales transform into a kind of ‘deals season’, so generally speaking, there are a lot of similar promotions going on. That’s not to say the deals are bad, however, most of the listings we’ve found are still at their lowest prices all year – or at least matching their lowest prices.
Take the MacBook Air M1 we just posted below as an example, which is currently $799 at Amazon. This model is generally found at prices ranging from $899 to $929 at Amazon, and it’s been on sale for $799 a couple of times in the last month. Those holding out for a ‘record-breaking’ price may be disappointed with this one but it’s still a very strong deal overall.
5 popular deals at Amazon yesterday – that you can still get now
Following on from my previous post – Amazon’s Cyber Monday deals are…very similar to its Black Friday deals. That’s to be expected though: most retailers will be rolling their existing deals into their Cyber weekend sales over the next few days.
These five deals are all ones we either first noticed yesterday or during the week before. But they’re all great value, so they’re definitely worth checking out.
Toloco Massage Gun: was
$259.99 now $69.99 at Amazon
This top-rated massage gun has a massive 73% discount in Amazon’s Cyber Monday sale: it’s down to $65.57 from $259.99. The Toloco massage gun features 20 different speed levels and 15 replaceable massage heads to relieve pain on all parts of your body and has over 31,000 positive reviews on Amazon. It’s one of the most popular deals from Friday.View Deal
National Tree Company Pre-Lit 6.5-feet Christmas Tree: was
$399.99 now $214.99 at Amazon
If you haven’t picked out your Christmas Tree this year, Amazon’s Cyber Monday sale is offering a massive $184.20 discount on this 6.5-foot artificial tree. The top-rated Dunhill Fir Full is pre-lit with 650 white lights that remain lit even when a bulb goes out. Plus, if you use ALEXATREE at checkout, you get a free Amazon smart plug and Amazon Echo Dot (3rd Gen) with your purchase (just make sure all the items are in your cart).View Deal
Revlon One-Step Volumizer Hair Dryer/Brush: was
$69.99 now $25.24 at Amazon
Another hot item from the last few days – Amazon has the best-selling Revlon One-Step hair dryer on sale for a record-low price of $25.24. Thanks to the unique oval brush design, the hairdryer delivers a salon-like blowout with brilliant shine and extra volume.View Deal
Apple AirPods Pro (2nd Generation): was
$249 now $199.99 at Amazon
This one’s worth paying attention to as well: Apple’s best-selling AirPods Pro 2 are still on sale for $199.99 – a new record-low price. Apple’s all-new earbuds include improved audio quality and noise cancellation and include a wireless charging case that provides more than 24 hours of battery life. View Deal
Oculus Quest 2 (128 GB) Black Friday bundle: was
$469.99 now $349.99 at Amazon
If you’ve been after an Oculus Quest 2, this is the perfect time to pick one up. In our four-and-a-half-star review we commended the Quest 2’s solid specs and easy-to-use nature, plus there are some great games on the platform (which this bundle includes two of: Beat Saber and Resident Evil 4 VR).View Deal
Is the cheapest TV on Amazon worth buying?
Amazon’s Cyber Monday TV deals seem to get cheaper and cheaper every year, so much so that, incredibly, you can now buy a smart display for under $100. It’s true that at this price you tend to see the real budget models or own-brand displays, but we’re always surprised by how cheap the retailer offers them over Cyber Monday.
Take this one, for example:
Insignia 24-inch F20 Series HD Smart Fire TV (2022):
$89.99 $79.99 at Amazon
This 24-inch Insignia set is on sale for a record-low price of just $79.99, and it’s the cheapest Cyber Monday TV deal we’ve spotted so far. While the Insignia F20-Series display lacks 4K capabilities, the HD TV does include smart features with the Fire operating system and hands-free control with Amazon Alexa. You can also get a larger 32-inch model for just $99 right now.View Deal
We haven’t reviewed it here at TechRadar, but we can give you our honest opinion, based on the fact that we review dozens of TVs every year.
So, yeah, it’s 24 inches, which is tiny in comparison to most common TV sizes today (it’s more like a computer monitor). That said, it has got some surprisingly good features for the money.
The biggest positive of this display is that it has Amazon Fire TV built right in, so you don’t have to pair it up with a Fire TV Stick or equivalent to get full access to all the best streaming services or compatibility with Echo devices. It’ll basically work right out of the box and get you streaming Amazon Video or Netflix in no time – and it’s small enough to fit on nearly any desk or tabletop.
What we don’t like is the 720p resolution. For a display in 2022 – even one that’s 24 inches – that’s lacklustre. The 32-inch version for $99 features this same 720p resolution, too, which will look even worse on a slightly bigger screen size.
Based on that, if you can afford it, we’d recommend opting for a slightly bigger display like this one.
Amazon Fire TV 43-inch 4-Series 4K smart TV:
$369.99 $209.99 at Amazon
Get the all-new Amazon 43-inch Fire TV on sale for just $209.99 – the cheapest price we’ve ever seen. This budget Cyber Monday TV deal includes the Fire TV experience for easy streaming and includes a handy voice remote so you can control your TV completely hands-free.View Deal
This 43-inch Amazon-branded display has the same handy Fire-TV smart features as the cheapo Insignia but has a much, much improved 4K resolution. It also supports HDR 10, HLG, and Dolby Digital Plus for an improved picture quality overall.
Should you buy the MacBook Air M1 (2020) – or the newer M2 (2022)?
Apple MacBook Air (M2, 2022)
The MacBook Air (M2, 2022) has a fantastic design, bigger screen and incredibly long battery life, but also a much higher price tag. Think of it more as a replacement for the 13-inch MacBook Pro, and it starts to make a lot more sense. Read more: MacBook Air (M2, 2022) review
- Great new design
- Upgraded performance
- Long battery life
- Larger, brighter screen
- Much more expensive
Apple MacBook Air (M1, 2020)
The MacBook Air (M1, 2020) is phenomenal value for money, which makes it incredibly tempting. It’s no slouch in the performance stakes, although if you’re looking to do heavy graphics editing and multitasking go for the M2. Read more: MacBook Air (M2, 2020) review
- Excellent value for money
- Great all-around performer
- Good battery life
- Silent in use
- Not as powerful
The 13-inch MacBook Air (M1, 2020) has returned to its lowest-ever price. There’s no question that it’s incredible value for money, but it’s no longer the newest model. So: should you buy the newer and more powerful MacBook Air (M2, 2022), or the better-value and still excellent MacBook Air (M1, 2020)?
It’s a tricky choice, which is a testament to just how good the older laptop is.
The MacBook Air (M2, 2022) brings some big changes, both inside, with the new M2 chip, and on the outside, with a radical redesign. If you want a modern experience and upgraded performance, it’s the way to go. The new design is great, it’s more portable, and the screen is a big step up. The M2 could also prove to be a big upgrade.
However, the MacBook Air (M1, 2020) is a lot cheaper, which makes it incredibly tempting. If you don’t want to spend a fortune on a laptop, choose this one, as it offers excellent value for money, while also being a great all-around performer. And that’s true even more so today, now that the MacBook Air M1 is down to its lowest price ever at Amazon.
More cheap deals – under $25
So far we’ve mostly rounded up pricey buys on tech, but it’s well worth checking out Amazon’s excellent ‘under $25’ Cyber Monday section if you’re still on the hunt for some gifts this holiday season.
Under $25 at Amazon: toys, tech, kitchen gadgets, gifts ideas, and more
If you’re looking to spend no more than $25, Amazon has a wide range of cheap products, including toys, tech gadgets, kitchen tools, clothing, beauty, and more. It’s a great place to look if you need a fun secret Santa gift or stocking stuffers for the whole family. View Deal
These earbuds are a bit rock n roll
Wouldn’t life be boring if every ear you saw had an ice-white Apple stem hanging out of it?
Maybe you want the portable, wire-free music experience but you don’t want to follow the herd. Maybe you prefer a slightly more vintage aesthetic – albeit one benefitting from all of the latest wireless Bluetooth technology.
We get it. Marshall (or, to give the company its full moniker, Marshall Amplification) does too, for it is a gloriously rock-steady UK audio outfit founded in 1962 by Jim Marshall.
Every Marshall product somehow looks like a guitar amp, even when it’s a set of tiny earbuds. And that is what we have here, as well as a stunning pair of wireless on-ears, both discounted for Black Friday and both as cheap as we’ve ever seen them.
Marshall Minor III earbuds: was
$129.99 now $99.99 at Amazon
They’re back down to their lowest-seen price! If you want an AirPods-y design but more beautiful than AirPods (just look at that rubberised snake-skin effect case!) you might have just found them. We haven’t reviewed this particular set of true wireless buds from Marshall, but you’re getting 12mm drivers, Bluetooth 5.2, a 25-hour total battery life and on-ear touch controls – all of which are bang on for this money. No ANC, but for this price we don’t mind. View Deal
Marshall Major IV wireless headphones: was
$149.99 now $99.99 at Amazon
Not a model we’ve tested, but they launched in October 2020 boasting an incredible (incredible!) 80-hour wireless battery life and we absolutely love the styling. And in case you’re worried (given the retro aesthetic), no, they do charge via USB-C, and you also get a 3.5mm cable in the box. No ANC, but you do get Marshall’s iconic gold-tone multi-directional knob for all on-ear playback and volume controls. Road trip coming up in the new year? This is the lowest we’ve seen them and, we think, a very tempting proposition.View Deal
Get a fresh cut for a cut price
Amazon’s excellent Braun Series 9 Pro deal has rolled over from Black Friday into Cyber Monday, meaning you can still pick up the German brand’s best-ever electric shaver for the handsome price of $259 (down from $330). That’s 21% less than usual, and just $10 shy of being Amazon’s best-ever price.
I’m in the process of reviewing the Series 9 Pro for TechRadar’s best electric razors and beard trimmers guide, and honestly, my biggest gripe so far concerns its typically astronomical retail price. Black Friday weekend, though, has made that figure much, much more reasonable, meaning the Series 9 Pro is an easier recommendation than ever right now. If you’re keen to upgrade your shaving game in 2022, now is absolutely the time to do so.
Braun Series 9 Pro Electric Shaver with SmartCare Cleaning Center: was
$329.99 now $260 at Amazon
You can pick up the black or silver version of the Series 9 Pro for 21% less at Amazon in the US right now. For $260, you’ll get Braun’s best-in-class shaver, a 5-in-1 cleaning centre and a travel charge case. The German brand claims that the Series 9 Pro will last you seven years – what’s $260 for almost a decade’s worth of use?View Deal
5 cracking Keurig coffee maker deals
Almost all of Amazon’s Black Friday Keurig coffee maker deals have been repackaged as Cyber Monday deals for the weekend, meaning you can still bag best-selling models including the K-Mini, K- Slim, K-Classic, K-Supreme and K-Elite for exceptionally low prices.
We don’t anticipate seeing any of the below deals improving as we approach Cyber Monday proper, so our advice is to act now if you’re keen to upgrade your coffee-making hardware to one of Keurig’s popular machines.
Keurig K-Mini Coffee Maker: was
$100 now $49.99 at Amazon
Like the Keurig K-Slim, the K-Mini coffee maker is designed for those with limited space (or a smaller budget). It’s less than five inches wide, so can easily fit on small counter tops, and can still brew any cup size between 6 to 12 ounces. However, unlike the Slim, the K-Mini only features a one-cup reservoir, so you’ll need to add water for each brew. $50 is just $2 shy of Amazon’s lowest-ever price.View Deal
Keurig K-Slim Coffee Maker: was
$130 now $79.99 at Amazon
If space is an issue on your kitchen top, consider Keurig’s K-Slim machine. It’s a lot thinner than your average coffee maker, but can still serve up to 12 oz of liquid at a time. It’s a great choice if you want something practical but with a small footprint. Keurig itself dropped the K- Slim down to $75 last Black Friday, so this $80 deal at Amazon is almost as good.View Deal
Keurig K-Classic Coffee Maker: was
$150 now $99.99 at Amazon
The perfect all-around coffee maker for a family kitchen, the Keurig K-Classic is a great option if you’re looking for something with a large reservoir and quick brew time, but don’t want to completely break the bank. Amazon knocked $50 off its list price last Black Friday, but has had the K-Classic as low as $45 in years prior. For our money, though, under $100 for this model is still a stellar deal. View Deal
Keurig K-Supreme Coffee Maker: was
$160 now $99.99 at Amazon
Keurig’s K-Supreme coffee maker is 38% off at Amazon right now, which is just $20 shy of its lowest-ever price. This model boasts the brand’s MultiStream brewing technology to better saturate coffee grounds, and its 66 oz reservoir can be positioned on either side of the machine. The only difference between the K-Supreme and its Plus sibling– which is also on sale at Amazon – is that the latter gets programmable brew strength and temperature settings.View Deal
Keurig K-Elite Coffee Maker: was
$190 now $119.99 at Amazon
Fan of iced coffees? The K-Elite can handle those. It’s also capable of producing hot water on-demand should you need it – making the K-Elite perfect for oatmeal or tea. This model features QuietBrew technology to reduce noise, as well as notifications for descaling. $120 is just $20 short of Amazon’s lowest-ever price, which came back in July, and we don’t anticipate seeing this deal get much better.View Deal
This Amazon deal definitely isn’t collecting dust
On the subject of home appliances, Amazon’s Black Friday Dyson vacuum deals have also remained active for the weekend, with many now labelled as dedicated Cyber Monday deals. The excellent Dyson Cyclone V10, for instance, is still available for 23% less than its usual retail price (now $538 from $699.99).
This one-time best-in-class cordless vacuum is selling fast, mind you – at the time of writing, Amazon only has 20 models left in stock. Go, go, go!
Dyson Cyclone V10: was
$699.99 now $538 at Amazon
This big, copper-colored cleaning machine may have gotten a bigger sale this time last year, but Amazon’s current £140 discount is still more-than-reasonable. The Cyclone is worth considering for its cleaning ability, relatively long battery life and multiple attachments – it earned an excellent 4.5 stars in our review. View Deal
Is this Amazon Oculus Quest bundle any good?
Obviously not every Cyber Monday deal is quite as good as it first looks, so we can forgive anyone who looks at this Oculus Quest 2 bundle deal with a degree of cynicism. But in this case, we think it’s a genuinely great offer.
For starters, Meta increased the price of the Quest 2 by $399 just a few months. That was a massive jump from of $100 from its previous price of $299, so a 33% rise.
A $50 saving over the newly increased price is certainly worth having, but where this deal really earns its corn is in the fact that it also come with two games. So, not only are you getting one of the best VR headsets, but those bundled games take the overall value way up. Overall, it more than makes up for the price rise.
Both games are pretty good, too; Beat Saber takes the rhythm game in a fun and exciting new direction, while Resident Evil 4 VR is a seminal survival horror game.
Oculus Quest 2 (128 GB) Bundle: was
$469.99 now $349.99 at Amazon
If you’ve been after an Oculus Quest 2, this is the perfect time to pick one up. In our four-and-a-half-star review we commended the Quest 2’s solid specs and easy-to-use nature. Plus, there are some great games on the platform and this bundle includes two of them: Beat Saber and Resident Evil 4 VR.View Deal
Should you buy the Kobo Libra 2 or Amazon Kindle Paperwhite?
Kobo Libra 2 ereader
Screen size: 7 inches
Battery life: 6 weeks
The Kobo Libra 2 is the best all-round ereader there is. It has far more storage than the Kindle Paperweight, Bluetooth support for audiobooks, and is packed with useful features the Kindle doesn’t have, such as OverDrive support to let you borrow library books. If you’re looking for the most value for money, this is it.
- Asymmetric design
- 32GB storage
- Audiobook support
- Erratic battery charging
Amazon Kindle Paperwhite (2021)
Screen size: 6.8 inches
Battery life: 10 weeks
The Kindle Paperwhite offers a very comfortable reading experience, with a clear display that’s easy to look at. It beats the Kobo Libra 2 on battery life (10 weeks versus six), but it’s more complicated to upload books that haven’t come from the Amazon store and falls short on features in comparison.
- Large and clear display
- Faster USB-C charging
- Reading experience
- Limited to Amazon’s store
Choosing the best ereader isn’t easy. Do you go for the market leader, Amazon’s Kindle, and if so, what’s the best Kindle? Or do you try a different brand, like Kobo (which has also been around a long time, since 2010)?
Both are at their lowest price ever today in the Amazon Black Friday sale. Both have front lights, both are waterproof and both have a ‘dark mode’.
However, the Libra 2 is good value with no confusing options, more storage by default and a better ergonomic design. It’s also got a very slightly larger display. we gave it a full five stars in our Kobo Libra 2 review.
The Paperwhite, meanwhile, costs more and lacks page-turn buttons, but it has a glass front and a faster processor. And if you go for the more expensive Paperwhite Signature Edition ($129 down from $189.99 at Amazon) you’ll also get wireless charging and an auto-adjusting display. We gave it 4.5/5 in our review.
For us, the winner is the Kobo Libra 2. Newer models from other brands have arrived since its launch, but it’s a a fantastic all-around champion that still holds strong to its place as our #1 choice of ereader.
A seriously big discount on a great laptop
No, this one’s not an Amazon deal – but we still wanted to mention it.
Lenovo knows a thing or two about making productivity laptops and we’re big fans of its Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon series. The latest Gen 10 model is a stellar professional laptop for Windows fans – and even better, it’s $1,289 down from $2,879 on Lenovo’s website.
Bonus: it’s available in a variety of configurations, all heavily discounted, with the biggest reduction on the high-end $4,169 model, which has had a staggering $2,255.43 slashed off the retail price to bring it down to $1,913.57.
Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 10: was
$2,879 now $1,289 at Lenovo
You can save a whopping $1,590 on this premium productivity laptop this Cyber Monday weekend. The Gen 10 version of Lenovo’s ever-popular ThinkPad X1 Carbon series packs an ultrafast 12th-gen Intel Core processor along with 16GB of RAM and a bright, colorful display with a 16:10 aspect ratio – perfect for fitting more on your screen when browsing the web.View Deal
3 of the best air fryer deals
Air fryers were (once again) in great demand over Black Friday, and we’re pretty sure Cyber Monday will see plenty of great discounts.
In fact, there are still lots of deals available on products from the likes of Ninja and Instant. Here are three of our favorites.
Proscenic T21 Air Fryer:
was $129.99, now $79 at Amazon
When we reviewed the Proscenic T21, we appreciated the fact that we could use an app on our smartphone to control it. It helps that it’s easy to clean as well. So, if you’re in the market for an air fryer that’s especially easy to use, you’ll be please to know that the T21 is discounted $50 for its lowest price ever of $79.View Deal
Instant Vortex Plus 6-Quart Air Fryer Oven: was
$169.99, now $99.95 at Amazon
This air fryer has had the biggest Black Friday Instant Pot deal ever on Amazon, dropping $70 in price, which is over 40% off the sticker price. That’s a great deal for this 4.5 out of 5-rated air fryer which comes with a display window, six different functions, and Instant’s EvenCrisp technology for even cooking. The deal is still live ahead of Cyber Monday.View Deal
Ninja AF101 Air Fryer:
was $129.99 now $99.95 at Amazon
Amazon has this best-selling Ninja model on sale for $89, giving you a nice 23% discount. The four-quart air fryer has over 39,000 positive reviews on Amazon and can not only air fry but crisp, roast, reheat, and dehydrates food for quick and easy meals.View Deal
Amazon device deals are still live
Amazon always cuts the price of its own devices for Black Friday and Cyber Monday, and this year’s deals are pretty good.
Both the 3rd and 5th Gen Echo Dots are down to record lows (admittedly the 5th Gen only released fairly recently), ditto for the Fire TV Stick Lite and 4K, and likewise for several Fire tablets, Kindles and Ring doorbells. We’ve included our nine favorites below.
Echo Dot (3rd Gen) Smart Speaker: was
$49.99 now $14.99 at Amazon
This early black Friday deal from Amazon slashes the best-selling Echo Dot to just $14.99 – the lowest price we’ve ever seen. The best-selling smart speaker can play music, answer questions, check the weather and control your new smart bulb – all for under $15.View Deal
Echo Dot (5th generation): was
$49.99 now $24.99 at Amazon

With Amazon Alexa on board, the Amazon Echo Dot allows you to control your smart home setup, play music or podcasts, or simply ask for the forecast.View Deal
Fire TV Stick Lite with Alexa Voice Remote: was
$29.99 now $14.99 at Amazon
A great stocking stuffer idea, Amazon has the all-new Fire TV Stick Lite on sale for just $14.99 – the lowest price we’ve ever seen. The budget streaming player allows you to enjoy tens of thousands of channels, apps, and Alexa skills and features an Alexa voice remote.View Deal

Instant Pots still hot
We know a lot of the holiday buying heat now revolves around Air Fryers, but Instant Pots remain an excellent gift-giving choice. They’re easily as versatile as Air Fryers just without all the excitement of oil-free-crisping.
The other thing worth noting is that Black Friday Deals keep on rolling right into Cyber Monday. These two Instant Pot options are not officially listed as Cyber Monday deals on Amazon, but they certainly are Cyber Weekend ones.
There’s the classic 10-in-1 model for just $99.99 and an Instant Pot with, you guessed it, air fryer capabilities for $169.95. They’re both solid deals that might be around through Monday or could evaporate at any minute. You might have to move fast.
Instant Pot Pro 10-in-1 Pressure Cooker: was
$169.99 now $99.95 at Amazon
Instant Pots are always Black Friday best-sellers and Amazon’s early Black Friday sale has the Instant Pot Pro on sale for $99.95 – Just $20 more than the record-low. The six-quart pressure cooker features 10 appliances in one, including; slow cook, sous vide, sauté pan, rice, sterilizer, yogurt maker, food warmer, cake baker, and steamerView Deal
Instant Pot Pro Crisp 8qt:
was $269.99 now $169.95 at Amazon
What’s better than an Instant Pot multi-cooker? Well, one that also has air fryer capabilities, of course. Getting a lofty 4.5 out of 5 star rating in our Instant Pot Pro Crisp review, this is definitely a must get for every kitchen, especially those that have limited space. The 8-quart model is $100 off right now.View Deal
Earlier tonight we had our first “ring and run” in ages. Some teenagers scrambled to our front door, knocked, and then dashed off. We missed them, but our video doorbell did not.
It’s hard to put a price on home security and knowing what’s happening outside the front of your home when you’re not there, or knowing who is standing there and knocking on your door (or running away). People still do silly things at other people’s front doors but now we have a record because of all these video doorbells.
This Blink Video Doorbell, which has a motion detector and a camera, was on sale for Black Friday and Amazon is letting the good times toll with the $34.99 sale (was $49.99) still in place and now listed as a Cyber Monday Deal.
One nice thing about this model is that it can be wire-free (battery-operated), which makes for super-easy installation. You can hook it up to existing wiring if you want.
Blink Video Doorbell: was
$49.99 now $34.99 at Amazon
Get the top-rated Blink Video Doorbell on sale for just $34.99 in today’s early Black Friday deals – the lowest price we’ve ever seen. The Blink doorbell alerts you when motion is detected and features infrared night video and two-way audio.View Deal
Get the Dyson Airwrap dupe
The Dyson Airwrap must be a lot more popular than it looks on paper, seeing as the only proper discount you could get this Black Friday-Cyber Monday season is a 20% deal if you were a past Dyson customer. If you haven’t bought a Dyson product at their online store before, the only “deal” you could get is a “free accessories” one if you pay full price.
And that, we’re sorry to say, isn’t likely going to change this weekend or on Cyber Monday. Not that we’re not still holding on hope. Crazier things have happened.
If you’re just tired of waiting, however, lots of hair-styling consumers are turning to Dyson Airwrap dupes (and lots of fashion and lifestyle magazines are recommending the same). They’re much less expensive – some under $50; they’re just as effective; and best of all, they’re already on sale for Cyber Monday.
You could wait until November 28 for that deal that might never come, or you could take advantage of these Cyber Monday Dyson Airwrap dupe deals now and save yourself the disappointment.
Revlon One-Step Volumizer:
was $39.87 now $25.24 at Amazon
Dyson Airwrap Cyber Monday deals are hard to find at the moment, so if you want a bargain you might want to consider getting a dupe. This model is at a record-low price at Amazon, offering you 30% off.View Deal
Mayloa Hair Dryer Brush:
was $55.99 now $29.99 at Amazon
If you do not want to spend $499.99 on the original and are looking for something cheap, this dupe from Mayloa is now under $30. It’s got a 4 out of 5 rating on Amazon, with verified users praising it for its drying power and lightweight design. It looks very much like the Revlon One-Step Volumizer, however. So, if you can find that one, consider it first.View Deal
T3 AireBrush Duo:
was $189.99 now $142.49 at Amazon
Take a hefty 25% off this Dyson Airwrap dupe from T3, giving you $47.50 in savings for Cyber Monday. This blow dry brush uses IonFlow technology and offers 15 heat and speed combinations – not to mention, two brushes. This one’s a little pricier than other dupes, but it’s definitely cheaper than the original.View Deal
Caffeinating the country, one Nespresso machine at a time
Nespresso machines are taking over households all over the US. They are among the most popular appliances to buy this sale season, and Cyber Monday Nespresso deals continue to pop up.
Though I’m more of a French press (and Jot coffee, when I’m in a hurry) coffee addict, I’ve used my share of Nespresso coffee makers, and I totally get the appeal. They’re a convenient way of getting your caffeine fix in the morning and chasing away that 2pm slump.
If you’re thinking of joining the Nespresso revolution or gifting a machine for the holidays, I found the best early Cyber Monday deals below. (Just please be sure to take advantage of that Nespresso recycling program when you get yours.)
Nespresso Vertuo Evoluo Coffee and Espresso Machine by De’Longhi:
was $219.00 now $153.30 at Amazon
The Evoluo variant of Nespresso’s Vertuo machine boasts a 26% bigger water reservoir than the Next, a larger body size, a more powerful heating element and a larger used capsule capacity. This is the beefiest bit of kit in the Vertuo lineup, and we don’t expect to see its price drop too much more (if at all) this Cyber Monday. View Deal
Nespresso Pixie Espresso Machine by Breville:
was $229.95 now $163.95 at Amazon
Nespresso’s barista-grade espresso maker, the Pixie, is almost identical to the Nespresso Inissia, save for its aluminum casing and flashing reservoir light. Amazon has knocked a whopping $68 off the list price of this Breville variant to bring its price down to $163. Cyber Monday coffee maker deals don’t get much better than this.View Deal
Nespresso Vertuo Next Premium with Aeroccino3 by Breville:
was $219.95 now $167.96 at Amazon
The Nespresso Vertuo Next Premium boasts the same aesthetic features as the Vertuo Next Deluxe (metal cup support, chrome colour accents etc.) but swaps its steel pourer for a plastic one. That’s a worse deal, right? Sure, but this particular Amazon bundle throws in an Aeroccino3 milk frother, which delivers hot or cold milk froth with one touch.View Deal
Garmin watches for pros and beginners
As TR’s resident active person, I’ve been keeping a close eye on the Cyber Monday Garmin deals and Cyber Monday Fitbit deals as they’ve been happening over the weekend. Many have come and gone, but there are still a few excellent buys waiting for people at either end of their fitness journey.
If you’re just thinking about buying your first fitness watch to help you take running a little more seriously, a Garmin is a great shout, thanks to its accurate multi-band built-in GPS and its ability to tell you information about your distance, speed, heart rate, and more. Where on your route were you slowest? What’s your average stride length? What’s the best five-kilometer, completely circular route to take me to and from my door? A Garmin can help.
Right now, the excellent entry-level Garmin Forerunner 45 is just $118.99 at Amazon, a better buy than most Fitbits at this price. For more experienced runners and adventurers, we’ve got something for you too: last year’s awesome Garmin Fenix 6X Sapphire with its price cut by a massive $280.
Garmin Forerunner 45 running watch: was
$169.99 now $118.00 at Amazon
At this price, this cheap Garmin watch is a much better buy than a fitness tracker. Great health metrics and integrated GPS, GLONASS and Galileo satellite positioning systems make this a thrifty runner’s best friend, with training plans all the way to half-marathon level. View Deal
Garmin Fenix 6X Sapphire: was
$749.99 now $470.03 at Amazon
The sublime Garmin Fenix 6X Sapphire is an almost perfect fitness watch, rated 4.5 stars out of 5 in our review. Its high price was one of its only negatives, but now you’ve got a nearly $300 discount on this incredible adventure watch, what’s not to love?
