The recently released Echo Show 8 -- it's basically a larger version of the popular Echo Show 5, currently on sale for $50 -- and therefore better suited to places like the kitchen, where the 8-inch screen makes it easier to view cooking videos and the like. Read our Amazon Echo Show 8 review.
Best Buy has upped the ante on Nintendo Switch bundle deals for Cyber Monday. Right now the retailer is offering the newer version of the Switch with two games instead of just one for $300. That means you get the updated system with longer battery life that can last up to nine hours. You'll also get starship-building game Starlink: Battle for Atlas, along the Switch-exclusive game, Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle.
Bose's SoundLink Micro is arguably the best sounding speaker for its tiny size -- and it's fully waterproof. Amazon and others are selling it for $69 or $30 off. It was the same price last year during the holidays, but this remains the lowest price we've seen for it. Read our full review of the Bose SoundLink Micro.
The MacBook Air 2019 has been on sale for $200 off, but recently Amazon was offering an extra $100 off if you choose "no-rush shipping" at checkout. That deal is over for now, but Best Buy still has $200 off the entry-level model, which has a Core i5 processor, 128GB of storage and 8GB of RAM. Read our MacBook Air 2019 first take.
If you've been waiting for a good deal on this terrific TV -- we gave this exact model an Editors' Choice Award for its image quality, affordable price and best-in-class Roku TV smarts -- it's here. And you can get it at that price from several places, such as Walmart and Best Buy. Amazon has currently sold out at that price.
On Thanksgiving Day, the rose gold edition of the QuietComfort 35 II was on sale for $249, or $100 off. That deal is over, but the black and silver versions (as well as rose gold) will be on sale throughout Black Friday weekend for $279. With the arrival this year of Bose's new Noise Cancelling 700 Headphones ($400), you can expect to see continued sales on the QuietComfort 35 II, which remains a very good headphone that's arguably slightly more comfortable than the 700. Read our Bose QuietComfort 35 II review.
This deal was part of Best Buy's pre-Black Friday sale from Nov. 8-11 and is back now. Apple's smart speaker, the HomePod, which started out at $350, is now $200 at Best Buy. That's a good deal.
Various retailers have had the latest entry-level iPad on sale the last few weeks. Target takes up the mantle today with a whopping $99 off. The 128GB model is also on sale -- it's $330, also $99 off.
A couple of Bose's latest smart speakers, the Home Speaker 300 and the Home Speaker 500, are on sale in black or silver. The 300 is $200 or $60 off and the 500 is $300 or $100 off. The larger 500 does sound better and is probably the better deal (it's expensive at $400 but more enticing at $300). The $350 Bose Home Portable is not on sale. This line of smart speakers is designed to compete with Sonos' multiroom speakers. Read our Bose Home Speaker 300 review.
Best Buy has the JLabs JBuds Air on sale for $30. They normally retail for $50. JLabs makes a lot of true wireless earphones; this is its most affordable model and frankly, the only one I'd buy. It's a decent set of true wireless earbuds that's a relative bargain at $30.
Dyson has last year's Cyclone V10 Animal Cord-Free Stick Vacuum on sale for $400 or $100 off. For $30 more, you can get the Animal Pro version of the same vacuum -- it's copper instead of purple (Best Buy had that model on sale for $200 off recently). Those prices aren't as good as they were Black Friday, but since Dyson's stick vacs are so expensive a $100 savings on last year's model is nothing to sneeze at. Read our Dyson Cyclone V10 preview.
CNET's budget pick for the best air mattress of 2019, this is the lowest price we've seen. It has an integrated pump and our review said "it's sturdy, impressively firm, with horizontal air chambers, and ultimately comfortable enough to sleep on." Amazon has it for $47, but it's a bit cheaper at Walmart.
The new entry-level model in JBL's Link line of WiFi speakers (with AirPlay 2 and Chromecast) is on sale for $70 or $80 off in gray or black. This model isn't portable -- it needs to be plugged in -- but it's a good deal on a compact multiroom audio speaker if you don't want to spend $200 on a Sonos One. The step-up Link Portable is also on sale (it's $100 or $120 off).
UE's original Wonderboom is on sale at Best Buy for $40 in black and teal colors. With the Wonderboom 2 ($80-$100) out, this model has been selling for $60-$70. It's a good price for this very good mini Bluetooth speaker (the Wonderboom 2 is a little better, but not that much better). Read our UE Wonderboom review.
Just remember: To take advantage of some of Best Buy's best sale prices, you need to be a member of the retailer's My Best Buy rewards program, the basic tier of which is free. Discounts are available online and in-store.
If a PlayStation 4 fanboy was trying to convert you to the platform, he would probably list The Last of Us, God of War and Horizon Zero Dawn as three of the must-play games you should buy first. With this new bundle, all three of the PS4 exclusives are included. Suffice it to say, it's an awesome trio of single-player games that will keep you occupied for months on end. Just keep in mind that -- with the exception of the teen-rated Horizon Zero Dawn -- these games are very much not for young kids.
The latest version of Jabra's popular "value" on-ear headphone, the Move, is on sale for $40 off at various retailers. The Style version is available in three colors (navy, gold beige and black) and has a bump in battery life. At $60, it's a great deal for someone looking for an affordable, quality, on-ear wireless headphone.
The Xbox One X bundle with Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order is on sale for $350. We've seen similar prices for the Xbox One X in the past, but this game is new, and eagerly anticipated. The Deluxe Edition of the game features some premium in-game skins and 90 minutes of behind-the-scenes video content. The bundle also includes three months of Xbox Live Gold.
Amazon's Fire TV Stick 4K is $25, or $25 off. That's its lowest price. For $5 less you can get the standard Fire TV Stick, but it's probably worth spending the $5 extra to upgrade to this model (even if you don't have a 4K TV just yet).
We recently awarded the Fitbit Versa 2 our Editors' Choice award, citing its reasonable price, long-lasting battery and compatibility across Android and iOS, and called it, "one of the best examples of a hybrid fitness tracker and smartwatch you can buy." Normally $200, it's on sale today at $130 ($20 cheaper than during Black Friday) at various retailers, including Amazon, Best Buy, Walmart and Fitbit's own site. Read our Fitbit Versa 2 review.
Amazon recently refreshed its 10-inch tablet, the HD 10, with a slightly faster processor, USB-C charging and improved Wi-Fi. The new version is now on sale for $100 ($50 off). That's a good price for Amazon's best performing tablet.
Best Buy has had the Beats Studio3 Wireless sporadically on sale the last two weeks. A few days ago it was $210, and now it's back to $200, its previous low. These have been out a while, but they're still very good noise-canceling headphones. They list for $350, but usually can be had for around $280. Read our Beats Studio3 Wireless review.
Target has the 38mm version of the Apple Watch Series 3 with GPS + cellular for $200. Yes that's $30 more than its Black Friday price, but still $100 less than what the Apple Store sells it for. Check out Target's other Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals here. Read our Apple Watch Series 3 review.
Best Buy has this entry-level IdeaPad laptop on sale for a mere $130 or $100 off its list price of $230. It's a basic Windows laptop, with an AMD A6 Series processor, 4GB of RAM, AMD Radeon R4 graphics and a 64GB eMMC Flash Memory drive. I wouldn't suggest buying this for $230, but if a basic computer is all you're looking for, $130 is not a lot to spend. You're in entry-level Chromebook territory with that pricing.
Since the new Series 5 debuted in September, the Series 4 has been priced at about $440. Now, Best Buy has it for $349 (or $379 for the 44mm version). The GPS-only version starts at $300.
And if you're looking for something more premium, you can also now pick up the stainless steel edition of this watch for $399 -- that's $250 off the previous $649 price.
Again, you need to be a member of the retailer's My Best Buy rewards program, the basic tier of which is free. Discounts are available online and in-store.
Best Buy is serving up the Arlo Pro 2 four-camera indoor-outdoor wireless 1080p security camera system for $400. That's $200 off its list price. That's a decent deal for this 1080p system. Arlo does have systems with higher resolution cameras, but they cost more. Read our Arlo 2 Pro review.
When Lenovo introduced the IdeaPad 330s last year, it started at $500. Now, you can get a decent midrange configuration -- with a quad-core AMD processor, a 256GB SSD and 8GB of RAM -- for about $300. Equipped with a good-looking 15.6-inch display, the 330s has thinner-than-usual bezels and an aluminum lid. This is a good deal on a solid entry-level laptop. Read our Lenovo IdeaPad 330s preview.
Most of Arcade1Up's machines cost around $300. This one -- which is a three-quarter-size version of the original -- costs $150. And it looks, sounds and plays exactly like the old arcade machines.
Nintendo is offering its own Black Friday Switch bundle -- but that one will include the original version of the console, not the newer version with improved battery life that you have here. Amazon's bundle includes a physical copy of Minecraft.
Sonos' Playbar soundbar has been around for a while but it only gets discounted sporadically. You won't see it for much lower than this. It does offer bigger and better sound than the Beam.
The Sonos Sub is a stylish wireless subwoofer that's arguably a little too expensive at $700. Best Buy will have the black version on sale as a doorbuster for $560 (it's unclear which day).
