Amazon Fire TV Stick with Alexa voice remote for $25 ($15 off)
If you watch a lot of TV shows and movies from Amazon -- and use the Alexa voice assistant -- the Fire TV stick is a no-brainer. A small, cheap and competent streamer at a rock-bottom price. Amazon has the same deal all weekend.
This dirt-cheap wireless video dongle gets even cheaper on Black Friday. And it supports streaming from all of the major players via Android/Apple phone, tablet or PC. Originally advertised as selling for $25 on Black Friday, Target is selling it for $20 right now.
Sure, you can find the non-4K version in smaller sizes for less. And Amazon has the larger 55-inch one for a few bucks more -- but it's currently backordered. So if you want to take home our favorite smart TV operating system built into a nicely sized 49-inch screen, this is it.
Apple's come close to perfecting the form with the 10.5-inch iPad Pro. An excelllent display, superfast performance and killer cameras, all tied together with iOS 11. (Best Buy has it at the same price.)
We've seen the newest version of the Apple iPad pop up elsewhere (i.e. Micro Center) for $250, but only as an in-store item. Given that Target's deal is available both online and in stores, it's the most accessible way to grab an iPad for relative peanuts.
Sure, it doesn't have GPS and it's not swimproof. But the Series 1 model has nearly everything else and it's the least expensive way to get an Apple Watch on your wrist -- now for less than $200 for the smaller 38mm model.
$300 gift card with purchase of Samsung Galaxy Note 8
Samsung's first dual-camera handset tops the S8 and S8 Plus with portrait mode and a digital stylus you can use for everything from handwriting notes to creating GIFs. Again, you get no discount off the regular price, but Target will throw in a $300 gift card.
Scoring high marks across the board, this everyday Android phone has it all: a great screen, a top-notch camera, strong battery life and extras like waterproofing and wireless charging. It's very similar to the aforementioned Note, just missing the dual camera (with portrait mode) and a stylus.
Fitbit's best basic all-around fitness tracker monitors heart rate and tracks everything automatically. Good battery life and a compact design make it the best Fitbit of 2017. This deal is also available at Amazon and elsewhere.
An inexpensive, user-friendly tablet that provides access to all that Amazon Prime offers. The Kids Edition's two-year, no-questions-asked replacement guarantee seals the deal. This deal is also available at Amazon, of course.
It may not be able to go feature-for-feature with the higher-end players, but the Amazon Fire HD 10 is an amazing value for a tablet with a high-res display and all of Alexa's skills. Also available at Amazon.
The Echo Dot is easiest way to get someone on the Alexa bandwagon. And this Black Friday pricing makes it the cheapest, too. (Nearly every other retailer, including Amazon, will be selling the Dot at this price, too.)
Between the high-resolution, 1080p video, the magnetic base, the user-friendly app and the sub-$150 price, this deal on the Nest Cam was looking fairly unbeatable -- until we saw the new (and great) Amazon Cloud Cam will be selling for $100 at Amazon.
Legend of Zelda Edition Nintendo 2DS for $80 (with Ocarina of Time game)
The Nintendo 2DS is an affordable, portable and accessible gaming system. At $80, this special edition is a steal, further sweetened by the fact that it come preloaded with a game. Plus, it's available now! (Just note that it doesn't play classic SNES titles -- you'll need a pricier New Nintendo 2DS XL or 3DS XL for that.)
Google Home Mini for $29 ($20 off), plus $10 gift card
A great device and a no-brainer for those who already have a Google Home, the Mini comes with a $10 gift card for a slam-dunk net sale price of $19. (Walmart and Best Buy are offering it at a similar discount.)
