Amazon didn’t invent Black Friday or Cyber Monday, but boy, have they perfected them. The retail giant is offering unbelievable savings across their digital storefront, some of which are so insane, we had to refresh the page a few times to make sure they were real. And lucky for you (and your bank account) they’re legit.
From chef’s knives and Kindles to TVs, mattresses and everyone’s favorite high-tech cooking companion (the instant pot) we’ve spent countless hours combing through Amazon’s offerings to help you find the best deals on the planet. But don’t think Black Friday and Cyber Monday are only about the big, marquee items. No, we find that some of the best buys come from those annoying, everyday products we all hate shelling out for, but never think to look up during a sale (looking at you, surge protectors).
So without further ado, feast your eyes on savings so good, they’ll shock you. And be sure to keep this page bookmarked, we’re going to update it constantly as deals go stale and new (possibly better?!) deals pop up in their place.
1. Fire TV Stick 4K: $24.99
Amazon’s answer to Roku is an affordable item to begin with, but at 50% off, it’s too good to pass up. Take any TV and instantly make it smart, allowing you access to your favorite streaming platforms (read: Netflix, Apple TV, Prime etc), as well as tons of other apps and content from Amazon. What’s more, the remote packs Amazon’s Alexa assistant, so you can even browse with your voice.
2. Insignia 32-inch 720p HD Smart LED TV: $99.99
If you’re looking for a new TV to add to a bedroom or playroom, this smart option from Insignia is a great bet. 720p quality with Fire TV built right in (so you could get it and skip our first deal up above), this TV packs all of your favorite streamers into a compact and affordable package. 32 inches isn’t massive, but we find it’s the ideal dimension for watching in bed.
3. Apple MacBook Air: $699.00
As far as we’re concerned, saving any money on Apple products is a win. But when you find a deal that’s $300 off one of their best laptops, it a no-brainer. With a 13-inch screen and 128GB of storage, this little lightweight laptop will quickly become your go-to device. For all those mobile working professionals out there, you just found your favorite high-tech companion.
4. Allezola Chef Knife: $20.99
Whether you’re an aspiring chef or someone who can only make toast, you need a good knife. And the only thing better than a “good knife” is a good knife at an unbelievable price. At 90% off (yes, you read that right) this high-carbon stainless steel blade can be yours. But act quickly, there is no way this deal lasts the weekend.
5. Instant Pot Pressure Cooker: $99.00
Over 30,000 people rated this pressure cooker a perfect five out of five stars. And if that doesn’t sway you, perhaps the nearly endless possibilities that come with this sort of machine will. It’s a rice cooker and a steamer, a slow cooker and a pressure cooker. It’s also dishwasher safe. It’s easy to call it a perfect kitchen companion, and for only $99 during Black Friday and Cyber Monday, we’re inclined to agree.
6. Zinus Memory Foam Green Tea Mattress: $238.00
$500 for an 8-inch memory foam mattress that utilizes green tea extract to combat odor and bacteria is a steal, especially when it’s delivered to your door in a convenient and easy-to-transport box. But that same mattress mentioned above for $238?! It should be illegal. But it’s not, it’s Black Friday and hard as we try, we can’t find anything wrong with Zinus and their mattresses.
7. Victrola Vintage 3-Speed Bluetooth Suitcase Turntable: $39.99
Looking to gift the music-lover in your life something special this year? Look no further than Victrola’s vintage 3-speed turntable. At an affordable price, this turntable is easy to transport and comes with built-in speakers. Sure, the components aren’t the best quality in the world, but for the price, this turntable is a great entry point for music lovers and those wishing to give Abbey Road another spin.
8. Kindle Paperwhite: $84.99
Light, waterproof and backed by arguably the biggest digital library on the planet, the Kindle is king among e-readers. If you have an avid reader in your family, or if you’re finally ready to move away from physical books, we can’t recommend the Paperwhite enough.
9. Belkin 12-Outlet Power Strip Surge Protector: $20.99
We know, a surge protector is an odd choice, but hear us out. Belkin is the best in the business when it comes to surge protectors, and this 12-outlet option is a killer piece of equipment. With all the tech gadgets your likely buying this year, you’ll not only need extra outlets, but a surge protector to ensure your setup won’t catch fire during your Star Wars marathons.
10. Ring Video Doorbell 2: $129.00
1080HD video, live-streaming capabilities and the option to chat with whoever is at your door, the Ring 2 video doorbell is essential to home security in 2019. Now 35% off during Black Friday and Cyber Monday, this little device will instantly up the security at your home and provide instant peace of mind.
11. Nikon D750 FX-format Digital SLR Camera: $1,696.95
Currently 50% off, this high-end SLR camera from Nikon is almost criminally affordable. Sure, $1,700 is a far cry from an impulse buy, but if you’ve been in the market for an exceptionally made, reliable camera with full HD video and 25 MP, you won’t find something better than this Nikon right here.
12. iRobot Roomba E5: $279.00
It’s almost 2020, why are you still vacuuming your home? We agree with Roomba that the chore of vacuuming should be relegated to the past, just like churning butter or riding horses to work. Get with the modern world and let this wonderful little robot patrol your floors and keep things tidy, while you focus on more important things like Netflix.
13. Samsung Flat 75-Inch QLED 8K TV: $3,997.99
So you’re looking for that high-end door buster, eh? Well, this is it. Nearly bezel-less, with a massive 75-inch, beautiful screen that produces 8K quality, this TV from Samsung is the top of the top. The coloring is unreal and the TV even comes with AI to convert normal, everyday content into 8K, so you’ll always get the best picture.
14. Dash Rapid Egg Cooker: $14.99
Cook up to six eggs to perfection, every single time with this egg cooker from Dash. No more broken yolks, no more overcooking because you were too busy checking Instagram. This is modern cooking technology at its finest and the best part, it’ll cost you less than $20.
