Cyber Monday 2017 is upon us and, while you'll find plenty of great deals online for consumer electronics and smart home upgrades, those with a flair for the automotive will find some great deals, too. Join us for a quick look at some of our favorites!
Does someone in your family have their eye on a Chevrolet Bolt, or perhaps the new Nissan Leaf? The EV market is set to take off in a big way next year and now's a good time to get ready. ChargePoint is offering 15 percent off its in-home chargers, either hardwired or plug-in varieties. And, with a standard SAE plug on the business end, they'll work with most-any EV or plug-in hybrid on the road today -- even Teslas. (With an adapter.)
If you live in a land where it snows, a good set of winter tires can surely save you a lot of trouble when the clouds begin to fall. And, getting them mounted on a dedicated set of wheels will save you a lot of time and money every spring and fall when it comes time to swap back to your summer rubber. Now's a great time to invest in both, with both TireRack and Discount Tire Direct offering a slew of offers on winter tire and wheel packages. Many are rebates, though, so don't forget to fill out that paperwork...
If you've been waiting for the right time to dive into a PlayStation 4, now might be it. Sony's offering $100 off a PS4 bundle that includes Gran Turismo Sport, the latest and greatest flavor of Polyphony Digital's long-running racing series. With VR support this time, what's not to love?
Prefer Xbox to PlayStation? Don't worry, there's a deal for you, too. Microsoft is selling the just-released Forza Motorsport 7 for a bargain $80. We're huge fans of the game here and, with support for 4K in the new Xbox One X, this is doubtlessly the best-looking racer on consoles right now, and with the Ultimate Edition you get the game, the Car Pass and the Day One Car Pack. Don't need all that fluff? The Standard Edition is down to just $39.
There are so many dash cams on the market right now you could easily spend the rest of the year comparison shopping for the right one for your needs and budgets. It's hard to pick the "best" in this category, but the BlackVue DR470-2CH is a solid choice, with separate cameras for looking forward and backward plus a painless installation. Right now it's about $50 cheaper than normal over at The Dashcam Store.
Plan to be making great time in 2018? You may want a little extra help on your windshield. Right now, Escort is offering a series of deals, including a free windshield mounting kit and 20 percent off. Just check your local laws before investing. These things are great, but they aren't legal everywhere!
We were really impressed when we tested an earlier Powerall charger a couple years back, and now you can pick up one of the newer models on a serious discount: $20 off the Powerall Slim at Crutchfield, making it just $50. With this you can not only jump your car, but your phone, too!
OK, maybe not the most fun option for Cyber Monday, but an important one. If you're looking to put together an epic emergency kit for yourself, check out Essential Packs Emergency Kit. You'll have to bring your own emergency supplies, but with the price marked down to $34, you'll have some extra change left to get lots of gauze.
Do you like pinkie fingers? Sure, we all do, and nobody likes having them savagely ripped off in a crash. Woodcraft, makers of high-quality yet affordable crash protection, is giving half-off their finger protectors. They're even available in seven colors!
If you're looking to add some serious car care products to your arsenal, now's the time. This 12-piece kit has nearly everything you'll need to get your ride nice and shiny. It can be had for $37.99 on Amazon, a $12 discount from the average selling price.
If you work on cars often, there's a good chance you will encounter a check-engine light at some point. With the Foxwell NT301 OBDII code scanner, you can read general and manufacture-specific fault codes with explanations. The NT301 model is on sale for $55.99, down $14 from its average selling price of $70.
Hyundai is offering up a ton of financing incentives through the end of November. One of the best deals is for a total savings of $3,500 on select dealer-stock 2018 Hyundai Elantra models. This includes $2,500 Retail Bonus Cash, $500 Hyundai Motor Finance Bonus Cash and $500 Holiday Retail Bonus Cash. That's plenty of scratch back in your pocket if you were looking to financing a 2018 Elantra, or if you were on the fence between that and a Toyota Corolla.
