Appliances and smart home products galore

I'm ambivalent about Black Friday.

Facing crowds of aggressive shoppers, supped up on caffeine and holiday music, doesn't thrill me. But the deals, oh, the deals. They almost make it worthwhile. Almost.

Fortunately, I discovered, a handy place where you can preview upcoming holiday sales at major retails stores (some sales are already active, while others won't hit until Black Friday and all of them are subject to local availability).

I found quite a few smart home and large appliance deals that should help you (and me) skip some of that in-store chaos.

We've reviewed some of these products -- and others we haven't, but all of them offer a solid value compared to their standard MSRPs.
