The new Amazon Echo Dot is a brilliant little smart home assistant that you can hide in every corner of your home, and Amazon’s taking $10 off the base price for Black Friday. If you’re struggling to think of a gift idea for anyone on your shopping list, this is sure to be a hit with nearly everyone.
In addition to being a pretty solid Bluetooth speaker, the Echo can check the weather, turn on your lights, read you the news, trigger custom IFTTT recipes, order food, and—my personal favorite—read you Jeopardy questions like a robotic Alex Trebek.
The battery-powered Amazon Tap is also $40 off, but it doesn’t feature the always-on microphone of its plugged-in siblings. So unless you really want to take Alexa on the road, you should probably skip it and get one of the other two.
The 7″ Fire Tablet blew Black Friday 2015 wide open at a mere $35, but Amazon’s upping the ante this year with an even lower $33 offer.
It should go without saying that this isn’t an amazing tablet by any means. But it’s a perfectly serviceable portable video screen, includes a microSD card slot for expandable storage, and even boasts a pair of (pretty bad) cameras! In short, it’s all the tablet most people need, and it’s never been cheaper.
You can also bundle with with a case and screen protector for $51.
If you need a little more out of your tablet, the brand new Fire HD 8 is $30 off today, bringing it down to $60. Compared to the $33 Fire, the HD 8 boasts a larger, sharper screen, louder speakers, faster Wi-Fi, and significantly more battery life.
There’s also an essentials bundle available for the HD 8, just $83.
Don’t need 4K? The recently revamped Fire TV Stick is $10 off as well. This new model features a quad core processor, and includes a voice remote by default, giving you full access to Alexa from the comfort of your couch.
While not nearly as good as the Prime-only deals we saw last month, if you’re in the market for a Kindle e-reader this holiday season, you can save $20-$30 today on three different models.
The $50 price point on the entry-level model brings it into impulse purchase range, but just remember that it doesn’t include a backlight. The $170 Voyage is really nice, and I own one myself, but it’s probably not worth the $70 price premium over the excellent Paperwhite.
SONOS speakers go on sale maybe a couple times per year, but even then, a full 25% discount on the PLAY:1 is unheard of. The PLAY:1 is the smallest member of the SONOS family, but it still sounds fantastic, and you can even link two of them together as a stereo pair.
If you still haven’t picked up Audio-Technica’s coveted ATH-M50x headphones, BuyDig’s eBay storefront will sell you a pair for $129 today, complete with a Slappa protective case, and a Fiio portable amp. These were your favorite headphones over on Kinja Co-Op, and this same bundle would set you back $20 more on Amazon.
It’s 2016, and your headphones don’t need wires anymore. Luckily, Amazon’s offering up Sony’s popular and well-reviewed MDRXB950BT Bluetooth over-ears for $88 today. Not only is that an all-time low, it’s actually a whopping $60-$110 off its usual price.
Whether you’re looking to start a podcast, or just want your Skype calls to sound better, the Blue Yeti is one of the most popular mid-range USB microphones you can buy, and Amazon’s offering three different colors for $90 today.
Brother laser printers dominated the voting in our Kinja Co-Op for best printer, and it’s easy to see why: They basically never jam, toner is much cheaper than ink (and it never dries out if you don’t use it), and they print much faster than any other consumer-level printer; on the order of 25-30 pages per minute, even when printing duplex. The glaring trade-off is that they don’t print in color, but it’s easier to live without that than you might think.
In particular, you chose the HL-L2340DW as your favorite model, as it offers wireless networking (including AirPrint and Google Cloud Print), a small footprint, and can even use Amazon’s Dash replenishment service to automatically order toner when you’re running low. Today’s $80 deal isn’t the lowest we’ve seen, but it usually retails in the $100-$110 range, so it’s a solid discount if you’re running low on ink or patience with your current printer.
If you still have any TVs without a Chromecast attached, Google’s official eBay store will sell you one at a $10 discount today (also available on Chromecast Audio). Plus, Google will throw in 90 days of unlimited Google Play music, 75% off a movie rental of your choice, and even three months of HBO Now (new users only) for free.
Microsoft’s Surface Book is good. Like, really good. And if it’s been on your wish list, Microsoft’s taking a whopping $400 off the 256GB/Core i5 model, and $250 off the 128GB/Core i5 model for Black Friday. It’s still not a cheap computer, but that’s the best deal we’ve ever seen on it.
While integrated sound bars are increasingly popular options for home theater audio, if you like to kick it old school with a receiver and satellite speakers, Amazon’s top-selling receiver is down to an all-time low $300 today, or about $100 less than usual.
The Yamaha RX-V679BL includes five HDMI inputs (all of which support 4K at 60FPS), Bluetooth streaming, and 7.2 channels of audio output. In short, it has all the features that most of you will need.
Update: The gift card is gone, but you can still get the nearly identical UN55KU6270 for $480. The only difference is the included remote.
Samsung’s UN55KU6300 made serious waves on Prime Day at $550, what with its 4K panel and HDR compatibility, but this Black Friday deal from Dell just topped it. You’ll pay a bit more up front, $600 to be exact, but you’ll receive a $150 Dell promo gift card (shown in cart) 10-20 days after your purchase, which is valid on anything Dell sells, including video games and consoles, speaker systems, and of course, computers.
Just note that these Dell promo gift cards are only valid for 90 days, so you’ll need to put it to use relatively quickly. Still though, assuming you find something you were going to buy anyway, this is a terrific deal on a name-brand 4K TV. I bought this set during Prime Day, and have been thrilled with it.
For a lot more TV deals, check out the TV section below.
Fitbit’s annual Black Friday discounts just went live, with all-time low prices (save for a brief preorder price mistake) on the entire wrist-based lineup, including the svelte Flex 2, the powerful Charge 2, the fashionable Alta, and the Blaze smart watch.
Inside, you’ll find deals on the gorgeous Activité and Activité Pop wearables, the e-ink Withings Go (which can run for up to 8 months on a watch battery), the weight tracking Body smart scale, and more, all marked down to new low prices. You’re going to have to work off that extra stuffing somehow, right?
Eero is the first networking company to truly bring mesh networking to the masses, and Black Friday has brought out the best deal we’ve ever seen on the popular routers.
While supplies last, you can save over $50 on a one or two-router pack, or over $100 on the three-pack. It’s still not the cheapest networking solution out there, but it’s certainly one of the simplest to set up, and one of the best for larger homes that struggle with dead spots.
If there are any items on your wishlist that you wouldn’t mind buying slightly used, Amazon’s taking an extra 20% off over 60,000 (at the time of this writing) select products from the Amazon Warehouse, or an extra 25% off over 5,000 used video games, consoles and accessories.
You can use the links above to search for what you’re looking for, and you’ll see the 20% or 25% discount automatically at checkout. Unfortunately, there’s no great way to sort through the deluge beyond searching for what you’re interested in, but if you have any items on your personal wish list, it’s worth a try.
Anker makes your favorite battery packs, charging cables, Bluetooth speakers, and more, and practically everything they sell has a special Black Friday promo code available right now.
Items are organized by category over on this post, just be sure to note the promo codes, and remember that you can only use one promo code per order on Amazon, so if you want multiple items, you’ll have to buy them separately.
Update: Also $100 at Verizon.
The UE Boom 2 is the waterproof sequel to one of the best Bluetooth speakers of all time, and Amazon’s marked it down to $130 today for Black Friday, an all-time low by $20.
The original OontZ Angle is one of your five favorite Bluetooth speakers, but if you need something a little louder, the XL version is on sale for $75 today on Amazon, an all-time low, and about $35 less than usual.
While both the original and XL share a similar design language and IPX5 water resistance, the XL boasts dual 20W drivers (vs. 5 watts in the smaller model), so it should be perfectly capable of filling an entire room or yard with crystal clear music. Just note that this is a Gold Box deal, meaning the price is only available today, or until sold out.
The Anker SoundCore Sport XL features the same one-meter waterproofing of the original SoundCore Sport, plus added dust resistance, making it even more rugged. And since it’s the “XL” version, it improves upon the original Sport with dual 8W drivers (vs. a single 3W driver), 15 hours of battery life (vs. 10), 66′ wireless range (vs. 33′) and a USB power output to charge your phone from anywhere. Simply put, it seems like a perfect speaker for your summer barbecues, hikes, and beach trips.
The SoundCore Sport XL debuted earlier this year at $60, but while supplies last, you can save $15.
The new GoPro is barely a month old, but it’s already seeing a solid Black Friday deal.
The full-sized GoPro HERO5 Black will still set you back its usual $400, but you’ll get $35 in Best Buy gift cards, plus a speedy 64GB microSD card thrown in for free. You can read Gizmodo’s full review here, but you’ll be getting the Cadillac of action cameras, including optical stabilization, 4K recording, and even voice control.
If that’s a little above your price range, the still-excellent previous generation GoPro Session is on sale for $180, along with a floating hand grip and a 16GB microSD card to get you started. Considering the camera alone usually retails for $200 these days, that’s a pretty solid package.
DJI’s Phantom 4 camera drone changed the game with automatic obstacle avoidance and subject tracking, and you can get the drone for an all-time low $859 today. For context, most retailers are listing this at $1,000 for Black Friday, which itself would have been an all-time low.
The Phantom 3 Standard today has been surpassed by the Phantom 4 and Mavic Pro, but it’s still a damn good flying camera for an unbeatable price. Today as part of their early Black Friday deals, eBay’s offering it up for $399 (a price we’ve seen a few times before), plus a $45 bonus gift card thrown in on top.
At that price, you’ll lose out on features like the accident avoidance, indoor positioning, and 4K video, but the camera still boasts an impressive 2.7K resolution, and it’ll last over 20 minutes on a single charge, which should be more than enough for most hobbyists. Just don’t forget to register it with the FAA!
Update: Want a 4K camera and an indoor positioning system? The Phantom 3 Professional is also on sale for $799, complete with two extra batteries and a carrying case. Just select the third option from the dropdown on this page.
Depending on who you ask, Pixelmator might just be the best image editor you can get for your Mac (yes, including Photoshop). And given everything it can do, it’s an incredible value at its normal price of $30 up front, and an absolute steal at 50% off.
Its iOS version is also down to $2, which is an absolute no-brainer.
Update 2: Uh, holy crap, here’s a 750GB Crucial MX300 for $100, while supplies last. It’s part of a larger Gold Box deal on Crucial memory products, which includes RAM, flash drives, card readers, and more.
Update: The 480GB model is sold out at $100, but the 960GB for $210 is still alive. You can also opt for a 500GB Samsung 850 EVO SSD for $130, with a FREE PC copy of Watch Dogs 2. Just check the special offers and promotions section of the product page for details.
Whether you want to give your PC a serious speed boost, or just build the external hard drive of your dreams, this is one of the first times we’ve ever seen a half terabyte SSD dip below $100.
You can also get double the space for $210.
This is about as small as a flash drive can possibly get, and yet it can hold 128GB of data for just $23. I can’t believe I paid Apple an extra $100 for that amount of storage on my iPhone.
Google Home is the smart speaker that Google devotees have been clamoring for, and it’s already down to $99 (from $129) for Black Friday. For context, that’s cheaper than we’ve ever seen the Amazon Echo, even refurbished.
The Roku streaming stick is all you need, and Amazon just knocked $15 off its base price, the best price we’ve seen, and a match for its promised Black Friday pricing. Even if you already have the old model, it might be worth $35 just for the ability to stream audio to your mobile device, which allows you to watch TV in bed without waking your significant other.
If you’re still listening to any of your TVs through its built-in speakers, Black Friday’s the only excuse you need to upgrade to a sound bar.
The standout deal we’ve seen so far is Vizio’s new 44″ 5.1 system, which includes a wireless subwoofer, and two rear satellite speakers to give you surround sound without the hassle of a receiver. We’ve posted lots of deals on the 38″ model in the past, but $350 is the best price Amazon’s ever listed on the new, larger model.
And if you don’t feel the need for a subwoofer, Vizio’s basic 38″ bar is just $70 right now, also an all-time low.
If you have any kids on your holiday shopping list, I can’t imagine a cooler gift than the WowWee COJI coding robot.
This is a little tabletop robot that kids can program using interactive code blocks from an iOS or Android device, allowing it to move around, change expressions, and gesture with its arms on command. $37 seems way too cheap for what this is, but that’s all you’ll have to pay today.
Air Hogs’ Starship Enterprise drone would be the ultimate gift for the Star Trek fan in your life this holiday season, so go to warp factor 8 and get over to Amazon while it’s just $65, within a few bucks of an all-time low.
News flash: 8TB external drives exist, and you can get one for $170. This model from Seagate even includes a pair of USB charging ports on the front so you can power up your mobile devices at your desk.
You can also opt for 4TB of desktop storage for $90, the best price we’ve ever seen on any drive of that capacity.
Seagate’s popular portable drives (which don’t require an external power cord) are also on sale for all-time low prices, if you need to take your files on the go.
The new MacBook Pro (sans-Touch Bar) is the pricey-but-great Macbook Air apparent (see what I did there?), but today on Amazon, it’s slightly less expensive than usual. By $100, to be exact. Not bad for a brand new Apple product.
If you scurry over to eBay, you can save $100 on the svelte 12″ Apple MacBook, with no sales tax for most.
TP-Link’s tri-band Archer C5400 is a whole lot of router, and it can be yours for $200 today, an all-time low, and a huge discount from its usual $265-$300. That gets you MIMO support, a pair of USB ports, a fast processor, and even a 2-year warranty.
Say your wireless router can’t push a strong signal to every corner of your house, or maybe you own some kind of old set top box that needs an ethernet connection, but doesn’t live near the router. A simple powerline adapter is one of your best options for extending a home network, and you can get a great one for just $30 today.
Sony’s RX100 line is the cream of the point and shoot camera crop, and it’s priced accordingly. But for a limited time, you can get an RX 100 Mark III for $698, the best price Amazon’s ever listed. If you need some convincing, just check out Gizmodo’s review has a full rundown and some sample images.
TVs (Largest to Smallest)
Computers & Accessories
Nest’s annual $50 Black Friday discounts are officially live, so if you’ve been holding off on joining the Smart Home club, this is your best chance.
Needless to say, Nest has a lot more competition in the smart home space than in previous years, including the Ecobee3 thermostat (also $200 right now), and the excellent Logitech Circle security cam (down to $130). I’d concede that Nest’s stuff still looks the nicest from an industrial design perspective, but these competitors are worth a look too, especially at Black Friday prices.
Update: The 6-quart IPLUX60 is sold out, but the 5-quart version is also on sale for $49.
If you’re worried that you won’t get a ton of use out of this thing, note that in addition to standard pressure cooking, this is also our readers’ favorite slow cooker, and one of their favorite rice cookers too. To put a fine point on it: It’s one of the most versatile kitchen gadgets you can own.
We see lots of deals these days on the original Philips Hue starter kit, but the second generation set includes a Siri-compatible bridge and brighter bulbs (800 lumens vs. 600). And right now, Amazon is matching the lowest price we’ve seen on the second generation. Get the bridge and three bulbs for only $120.
Ring’s video doorbell lets you see who’s at the front door, even if you’re halfway across the world, and you can outfit your porch with one for an all-time low $125 for Black Friday, down from its usual $200. Every Ring doorbell can be powered via its internal battery, or wired directly to your home, so the only choice you have to make is the color you want.
If you know any friends or family members with young children, or even have some of your own, Amazon’s running a truly incredible deal on Babyganics eco-friendly diapers that’s worthy of your attention.
For a limited time, Prime members can save 50% on a single Babyganics diaper pack (many of which include upwards of 200 diapers) via a clippable coupon on each product page, plus an extra 20% when you use Subscribe & Save. Just note that you won’t see the final price until checkout.
Everyone and their mother should own a small fire-proof safe to protect important documents and valuables in an emergency, and the popular SentrySafe 500 is down to $20 on Amazon today. That’s about $8-$14 less than usual, and within a few cents of the best price Amazon’s ever listed.
Netgear’s Arlo home security system is a lot like Nest Cam, except the cameras can run off battery power, so you really can stick them anywhere. So if you’re ready to start monitoring your home like a paranoid person, Amazon will sell you a single camera for $100, or four for $350 today, both all-time lows.
Because walking’s overrated.
Owning a label maker isn’t something you think about until you need one and don’t have it. And at $10, there’s no question that this Brother P-Touch Label Maker is something you should pick up.
Ready to experience meat in a whole new way? Amazon’s currently offering the Bluetooth model of Anova’s excellent Sous Vide immersion circulator for $99, easily the best price we’ve ever seen.
Lifehacker has a great explainer on Sous-Vide cooking for you to check out, but the basic idea is that you seal the food in plastic bags, and then cook it in precisely heated water over a longer period of time. It sounds weird, but trust me when I say that it works like magic.
Every time we post this, we get some snark about the Bluetooth, so just know that it’s optional. If you connect your phone, you can find a recipe via Anova’s app, and automatically program the cooker with one tap, but you certainly don’t need to use it.
A KitchenAid stand mixer is just one of those things that should be in every kitchen, so if you’ve been meaning to pick one up, refurbs are only running $170 right now, in multiple colors.
If you can’t abide knowing somebody else may have baked a cake with your toy, Amazon is still offering $50 rebates when you buy a new one. Prices vary a bit by color, but most are priced at $280, prior to the rebate.
While it doesn’t have the brand recognition of Nest’s learning Thermostat, the Ecobee3 Smart Thermostat one-ups its most popular competitor by including a wireless remote sensor that you can place elsewhere in your house, giving the thermostat a more accurate picture of your home’s overall temperature. Plus, it’ll work with Siri via HomeKit, and your Amazon Echo too.
The OXO On 9 Cup Coffee Maker is our new recommendation for those who want amazing coffee paired with intuitive operation. It’s down to $150 for Black Friday, an all-time low.
- Microprocessor-controlled brew cycle replicates the pour-over method to produce 2-9 cups of SCAA-certified perfect coffee
- Water is heated and held at the perfect temperature for coffee (197.6-204.8 Degrees F)
- Rainmaker shower head evenly disperses water over coffee grounds for uniform saturation and full flavor extraction
- Intuitive LED interface features a backlit screen that displays the Coffee Maker status and freshness indicator
- A single dial allows you to program the number of cups and the 24-hour start timer
No matter how long you’ve been driving, it’s never too late to learn better habits. Automatic is a little Bluetooth dongle that plugs into your car’s OBD-II port (found on almost any car made since 1996) and communicates with your smartphone to track driving habits, mileage, and engine problems. It can even trigger IFTTT recipes and integrate with your Amazon Echo! But best of all, if you’re in an accident, Automatic will automatically alert the authorities and call your family, no subscription required.
The new Automatic Pro includes always-on 3G connectivity with no monthly fees, meaning you can track and interact with your car no matter where you are in the world (assuming the car itself is located in the United States). This model has cost $130 since it launched a few months ago, but for Black Friday, that’s getting knocked down to $110.
If you’re anything like my family, you decorate for Christmas the moment Thanksgiving leftovers are in the fridge. And if you want to skip waiting for the Douglas firs to be put out in that empty parking lot, Amazon’s one-day sale on Christmas trees is your answer. Choose from six different options to suit your style, from pre-lit to potted.
You might not need to use a Dremel all that often, but it’s one of those things everyone should keep in their tool box, if only for sanding wood and carving jack-o-lanterns. Today on Amazon, the high-end Dremel 4200 is on sale for an all-time low $87.
You may recall a Dremel 3000 deal from earlier this week, but the 4200 features a more powerful motor, better cooling, and more included accessories to tackle tougher jobs. Needless to say, it would make a great gift.
LifeStraws are great stocking stuffers for the outdoorsmen in your life, and they’re marked down to just $15 each on Amazon today, within $1 of an all-time low. If you aren’t familiar, these allow you to sip directly from basically any source of fresh water you find in nature, while filtering out 99.9999% of waterborne bacteria.
Cottonelle Ultra ComfortCare is one of your three favorite toilet papers, and Amazon is selling 36 rolls for $13 today, the best price we’ve ever seen by $3. Just note the 20% coupon is only available when you use Subscribe & Save (you can cancel after your first delivery), and you won’t see the discount until checkout.
Here’s your no brainer deal of the day (well, other than $20 off Amazon Prime): Buy a $25 Papa John’s gift card for full price, and Groupon will toss in a pair of free one topping pizzas to go with it. Who doesn’t love free pizza?
Whether you’re enticed by the idea of a Bluetooth-connected toothbrush, or just want it to get off your lawn, $70 is a great deal for an Oral-B toothbrush with a pressure sensor, five modes, and compatibility with several different brush heads.
If you want to pair it with your phone to track your brushing habits and learn which parts of your mouth aren’t getting enough attention, great! If not, it’s still worth buying at this price, which is a new all-time low. Just be sure to clip the $15 coupon.
Nose hair is a problem a lot of people have but, for some reason, few people take care of. For a limited time, score this Panasonic nose hair trimmer for just $10, and you can be one of those people doing something about it. Harambe didn’t die so you could look like The Missing Link.
If you missed out on last week’s Michelin wiper blade sale, or just prefer Bosch Insight blades, you can grab a pair for $23 from Amazon today.
Just pick the two you need, add them to your cart, and the discount should appear automatically, assuming both were shipped and sold by Amazon.com. The deal even allows you to mix and match sizes, so you can almost certainly find a combination that will work for your car.
If you still haven’t upgraded your morning routine with a life-changing wake-up light, Amazon’s taking an extra $10 off several different models via clippable coupons today.
For starters, the high-end HF3520 is down to $100, within $5 of an all-time low. This model features five different wake-up sounds, an FM radio, the ability to set two different alarms, and a color-shifting light that accurately mimics a sunrise.
If you don’t want to spend quite that much, the HF3505 is also marked down to $69. While it lacks its big brother’s color-shifting light and a few wake-up sounds, it does still include a radio, and its yellow light will still get your body ready for the morning.
And finally, the entry-level HF3500 is on sale for $60. This one doesn’t include a radio, and it only beeps—no natural wake-up sounds here—but the light works just as well as the 3505, and that’s what matters most. I’ve owned this model for a couple of years, and love it.
Life’s too short to vacuum every other day, but luckily, you can pawn that tedious chore off to a Roomba, and the entry level 650 model is marked down to $274 today on Amazon, which is $16 less than its previous lowest price.
While it does require a bit of babysitting from time to time, I haven’t vacuumed my house manually in months, and yet the floors always feel clean, even with two pets.
Tools & Auto
Whether you’re planning on picking up a new console over the coming days, or just want an extra gamepad for your current setup, DualShock 4s and Xbox One gamepads (the new models in both cases) are down to $39 on Amazon right now, in multiple colors.
Now that PlayStation VR requires the PS4 camera to operate, it’s no longer the unwanted stepchild of the PS4 accessory family. So if you have any inkling you might buy the PSVR in the coming months, you should take this opportunity to save big on the camera.
Sony’s Gold Wireless Headset isn’t just one of the best accessories you can buy for your PS4, it’s actually our readers’ favorite gaming headset period. Today’s $60 Black Friday deal is one of the lowest we’ve ever seen.
Update: eBay has the PlayStation 4 Slim Uncharted 4 Bundle with Rise of the Tomb Raider and the Nathan Drake Collection for $250.
“But wait!” You scream, spittle flying from your mouth, “Walmart is supposed to sell the PS4 with a bonus gift card, and eBay was going to include extra games and controllers with the Xbox! Are you trying to rip us off? I’m glad Hogan dropped the leg on you, brother!”
Update: Speak of the devil, all 1TB Xbox One S bundles at Best Buy come with a free bonus controller right now.
No, I’m not trying to rip you off. Settle down, Sparky. There are supposed to be better deals today, and we’ll be keeping a close eye out for them, and posting them as soon as we can (follow us on Twitter!). But odds are, they’ll have extremely limited quantities, and you might be in a turkey coma during the brief moment in spacetime that they’re actually available to purchase, so that $50 discount might be what you have to settle for.
If you’re able to get a better deal, great! Cancel the order with the measly $50 discount, grab Nana’s drumstick, and spike it like a football. If not, you saved $50, and life goes on!
Now, if you just don’t want to deal with the hassle, eBay does have the PS4 Slim Uncharted Bundle at a $60 discount right now, and the 1TB Xbox One S Gears of War bundle for $80 off, no waiting or refreshing required. That said, the cancellation and return policy there might be iffy, so if you go that route, make peace with your choice, and enjoy the holiday.
$999 gets you the Rift, a controller, and a CyberPower desktop PC with an AMD Radeon RX 480 4GB video card, which is everything you need to get started. This same bundle has been selling for about $1300 since the Rift launched, and today’s discount is the first they’ve ever run. Just remember that like all Gold Box deals, this price is only available today, and it could very well sell out early.
Update: Now $699 + $100 gift card at Microsoft.
Microsoft was already running a promotion that netted buyers a $100 gift card with Vive purchase, but now Amazon is offering up a straight $100 discount, the first cash discount they’ve offered.
In case you’ve been living in a cave and haven’t played it yet, The Witcher 3 is one of the best games you can buy for the current generation of consoles, and the newly-released Complete Edition is available for just $25 for Black Friday. In terms of dollars-per-hour of content, you won’t find many better game deals.
If you were waiting for Black Friday to pick up a copy of Civ VI, GameStop’s $20 discount is likely to be the best you’ll see this weekend. The download unlocks on Steam.
Steam’s hardware Black Friday discounts are officially live, with the Steam Link dropping all the way down to $20, its lowest price ever by $15, and the Steam Controller matching its all-time low price of $35.
Update: Sold out for now, but we’ll let you know on Twitter if it comes back.
Just note that these don’t include an AC adapter (I know, I know), so grab one while you’re there.
$59 is within a couple bucks of the best price Amazon’s ever listed, so be sure to get a copy before they alter the deal.
Infinite Warfare will set you back $40 on PS4, Xbox One, and PC, which is pretty great considering the game’s only a few weeks old, while XCOM 2 is marked all the way down to $30 on both major consoles.
Update: Sold out on PS4 for now, but still available for Xbox One.
Two full Borderlands games, remastered in 1080p, with all DLC included, for $15. That’s what you call value. This is the price we were expecting to see on Black Friday, so there’s no need to wait.
And so it begins. In a day full of great deals, this is one of the most all-encompassing. Amazon’s taking 30% off on “select clothes, shoes, jewelry, watches, and more” for Black Friday. And by “select,” they mean basically everything they sell. Discount is applied at checkout, so make sure you’re paying attention.
Imagine buying a coat or a new pair of boots, and having them show up on Monday, rather than two weeks from now. It can be a reality with Amazon Fashion, since Prime is available on most items.
I feel like I’ve written this same sentence way too many times this year, but here we go again. Nordstrom Rack is giving you a head start on Black Friday savings with up to 75% off all clearance styles. It’s basically a Clear the Rack sale in a Black Friday package, but I’m not complaining.
Right now, Amazon has a pretty nice Adidas Gold Box for you to look through, with sports bras, jogger pants, sweatshirts, and leggings for men and women. It’s a small selection (some highlights are below) but it’s definitely worth checking out on Amazon because it’s mainly core, necessary pieces of activewear.
But if you’ve been eyeing something from the brand that’s not there, head over here to Adidas’s main Black Friday sale. Get up to 50% off over 300 products, with everything from outerwear and training pants to socks and sunglasses, for men, women, and kids.
Need a new sweater but also a fall-appropriate skirt? One of those is 50% off. How about a button down and slacks for the upcoming holidays? Yup, one of those is 50% off. Urban Outfitters is literally making practically all apparel BOGO 50% off. It’s insane, but I like it.
It may be fast approaching the end of camping season, but stocking up on supplies for when it gets nicer out isn’t a bad idea. Especially when Amazon has a sale on Coleman. Outfit yourself in all new gear, like a new tent, a cot that’s perfect for car camping, or a portable camp stove, for a lot less than if you waited until next camping season rolls around.
Sephora is dishing out some really great deals on gift sets. It’s not a complete list of all the deals (more will go live later today and we’ll update this post as they do), but it’s a lot of the really fantastic exclusive sets. Beauty sets are probably the best part of holiday launches, because you can get full-size (and travel-size) products for a fraction of what they normally cost.
Here are all of the deals that are live right now:
- Milk Makeup Headliner Makeup Set, $25
- Living Proof Style Lab Kit, $10
- Reserve Rollerball Layering Trio Ornament, $10
- Nest Eau de Parfum Travel Spray Trio, $12
- Make Up For Ever Artist Palette Volume 2 – Artistic, $25
- philosophy Purity Made Simple, $15
- Josie Maran Infinite Argan Enlightenment Duo, $12
- Cover FX Radiant Skin Duo, $10
- Urban Decay After Dark Travel Pencil Set, $10
- First Aid Beauty FAB Holiday Trio, $20
- Murad Polish, Plump and Protect, $20
Ulta’s Black Friday sale promises to be a hefty one, but if you just can’t wait until later today when it launches, they are having a Thanksgiving sale until 4pm EST. There are are 200+ under-$10 options, 160+ under-$20 options, and almost 100 under-$30 options to help satiate your beauty needs early.
When it comes to finding the right pair of shoes, Rockport should be on your radar. Amazon has a few styles on sale right now that, if you’re hankering for some new kicks, you should take advantage of.
You do not have to go through the measurement and customization process to lock in this discount. You can checkout now and submit later, which makes it very easy to gift a suit.
Our previous $375 deal on these suits was our most popular exclusive ever, and most requested to have make a return.
Head over to this post for the rest of the details on this deal.
Uniqlo is full of some pretty fantastic deals right now. First, they’ve finally brought back free shipping with no minimum. That means you can buy your $2 socks, or those $9 HEATTECH tees that are on sale, and not pay shipping. And if you’re really excited about that sale, you can grab $15 off orders of $150+, $30 off orders of $200+, and $50 off orders of $300+.
Another day, another J.Crew Factory markdown. This time, get 50-60% off everything (price as marked), and an extra 50% off all clearance. J.Crew Factory has been on sale basically for the last week, so if you haven’t stocked up on workwear staples and outwear galore, maybe this one will change your mind.
Cleaning out your underwear drawer and throwing away bras that are way past their expiration date (you know the ones I mean) isn’t always fun, but it is necessary. Replace those lace thongs you bought four years ago with the broken elastic that sticks out like pubes with new ones from Amazon’s up to 70% off sale on bras, lingerie, sleepwear and more. Treat yo’ self.
Yes, buying bras online seems like a nightmare, but some of these discounted ones have over 1,000 reviews with 4+ average ratings. Some even have over 3,000. With that much praise, it may be worth the risk for a $15 bra that could change your life.
Thanksgiving is the most American of American holidays, besides July 4th probably. So what better way to celebrate the made-up-after-Thanksgiving holiday of Black Friday with some new Levi’s? Take 40% off everything when you use the code HOLIDAY40. That 40% off goes towards everything, with no exclusions, which is basically unheard of for Levi’s.
Your favorite winter boot was the Shearling Lined Bean Boot from L.L. Bean, and that’s no surprise. The Bean Boot is the iconic winter boot if there ever was one. So if you’re in need of a new pair, or want to stock up on other winter essentials, L.L. Bean is giving you 20% off when you spend $50+ and use the code THANKS20.
It also does look like L.L.Bean has finally figured out the whole, keeping Bean Boots in stock issue. Usually by this time of the year, you’re lucky if you find a Bean Boot even remotely close to your size, but right now, not one style is sold out.
It’s a triple threat of discounts from GAP, Banana Republic, and Old Navy. Grab 50% off everything from GAP (with the code TGIF50) and Old Navy (no code necessary). At Banana Republic, right now it’s 50% off one full-priced item and 40% off everything else, with the codes BRFIFTY and BRFORTY, respectively.
There are rumblings that Banana Republic could bump that 50% off to five full-priced items, so we’ll update if that happens.
Tarte Cosmetics is one of those brands that is always in my makeup bag. Right now, celebrate Black Friday early access with25% off your entire order, plus free shipping, with the code FRIYAY. Grab their Tarteist Lip Paint or Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush (in any shade you want). I also highly recommend the Lights, Camera, Lashes mascara, especially with 25% off.
While Nordstrom goes harder for their Anniversary and Half-Yearly sales, that doesn’t mean they skimp during Deals Week. Take up to 40% off apparel for the entire family, plus home goods, jewelry, handbags, shoes, and more. The sale is a little daunting, with 80+ pages of menswear and 200+ of women’s styles. So, best take your time leisurely flipping through.
Frank + Oak is known for their attention to detail with staple basics but if you’re unfamiliar with the brand, that’s alright. Right now, get to know them and stock up on simple styles like a wool topcoat or a water-repellant down-filled parka. Use the code BUNDLEUP25 and get 25% all outerwear.
If you listen to any Gimlet Media podcast (Startup, Surprisingly Awesome, Science Vs, etc), you’ve probably heard the Frank + Oak name. Recently they launched their womenswear collection and it’s really, really great.
If you’re in the mood for a new wardrobe, but don’t want to pay that much, American Eagle’s 40% off sale is for you. “Essential Styles” (think sweaters, flannels, and jeans) for both men and women are marked down, plus there’s free shipping. It’s the best way to re-stock your closet without breaking the bank.
Black Friday may be the perfect time to stock up on things you’ve needed all year on prices you can’t beat, but it also serves as a great way to cross off gift ideas. ThinkGeek’s massive 40-60% off sale will help not only satisfy the geeky gift receivers in your life, but you can easily grab something for yourself too.
Who doesn’t like saving money with their khakis (I bet Jake from Statefarm does). Docker’s Pre-Black Friday sale is here, with up to 50% off sitewide and free shipping on all orders. Grab work pants, chinos, and maybe cross off working about what you’ll be wearing for the holidays next month, all in one shot.

Amazon’s $5 sale on Marvel comics for your Kindle is the perfect sale to help you avoid talking to your family about politics after dinner. There are five pages of options, from Thor to Deadpool, and you can view them all in full color on the Kindle app for your laptop, smartphone, or tablet.
Category-wide sales on Amazon are few and far between, and this is one of the most wide-ranging discounts they’ve ever offered: Promo code HOLIDAYBOOK will take $10 off any $25 physical book order, shipped and sold by Amazon directly.
Unfortunately, this deal excludes Kindle titles and audiobooks, but if there are any commemorative coffee table-type books or collector’s editions that you’ve been eyeing, this is likely to be the best deal you’ll see this holiday season. Just choose carefully; you can only use the code once per account.
We’ve collected a few suggestions to get you started, but again, this works on any physical book Amazon sells, so you shouldn’t have any trouble finding a use for it. Let us know in the comments what you got!
