The weekend is over, but the Black Friday deals sure aren't. The only thing that’s changed is the name – Cyber Monday is here to provide discounts on items from all the biggest brands. Here’s a round-up of the best Cyber Monday deals available from big retailers like Amazon, Best Buy, eBay, GameStop, and Target right now:
Amazon Echo at $139.99, instead of $179.99
This always-listening speaker comes with a friendly assistant called Alexa who can help you with recipes, play music, or just answer interesting bits of trivia.
Amazon Tap at $89.99, instead of $129.99
If you’d like a portable version of the Amazon Echo, the Amazon Tap is what you should be getting. The only downside is that it isn’t always listening to you. Even so, you get access to Alexa on tap which makes this a useful little gadget.
Echo Dot at $39.99, instead of $49.99
Another Amazon pick is the Echo Dot, which does everything its big brother Echo does, but at a fraction of the price. The catch is that you’ll need to hook up your own speakers to the Dot. It’s proving to be quite popular, and is back-ordered for a bit, but the deal is great.
Kindle Paperwhite at $99.99, instead of $119.99
There are four total varieties of Amazon’s e-book reader, but the Kindle Paperwhite is the one to get. Just trust us on this one.
Anker 39W Dual USB Wall Charger at $19.99, instead of $69.99
You can charge two of your favourite devices using a single power socket, it supports QuickCharge 3.0, and has a 18-month warranty.
Blue Yeti USB Microphone at $89.99, instead of $128.98
The Blue Yeti is easily one of the best microphones at its price – The Wirecutter seems to think so, too – so whether you need one for podcasts, voiceovers or vocals, this will have you covered.
Fitbit Charge 2 at $128.95, instead of $149.95
We called the Charge 2 the best Fitbit for most people in our review, and we stand by that. If you’ve been considering getting a fitness tracker, look no further.
Fitbit Alta at $98.95, instead of $129.95
Although we would recommend the Charge 2, if you’re fashion conscious, and prefer something lighter – the Fitbit Alta is a pretty good alternative, and the deal price doesn't hurt either. Here's our review.
Samsung 55-inch 4K SUHD TV at $1,497.99, instead of $2,299.99
If you’re looking to upgrade from your 1080p-capable TV, the Samsung UN55KS9000 delivers Ultra HD 4K picture and has support for HDR – not Dolby Vision, though.
Seagate Backup Plus 4TB at $109.99, instead of $129.99
At value for money (or storage-per-dollar, to be precise), there’s no need to look beyond the Backup Plus 4TB. If you care more about price and space, than the physical size, this drive is the one.
UE Boom 2 Wireless Speaker at $129.99, instead of $199.99
It doesn’t beat the $99 price Verizon had on Black Friday, but a $70 drop is still great for what is one of the best wireless speakers in its category.
HP Spectre x360 at $949.99, instead of $1,149.99
The Spectre x360 has a 6th-gen Intel Core i7 processor, 8GB of memory, and a 256GB SSD. Plus, its touch screen won’t go to waste unlike with other laptops, as the screen can be completely folded (hence, the 360) to turn it into a tablet.
Google Home at $99, instead of $129
Google’s answer to the Amazon Echo may not have thousands of third-party skills (for now), but it handily beats the Echo on pricing. If you’re linked into the Google ecosystem, this is the one to get anyway.
Xbox One S 500GB Battlefield 1 Bundle at $249.99, instead of $299.99
Capable of 4K video streaming, HDR and 4K Blu-ray support (the PS4 Pro doesn’t do the last one), the Xbox One S is the Xbox to get if you fancy Microsoft’s exclusive titles over Sony’s, and it gets you extensive backward compatibility support for Xbox 360 games.
DJI Phantom 4 at $999.99, instead of $1,199.99
Launched earlier this year, the Phantom 4 – with its obstacle avoidance and tracking technologies – is the best entry point into the world of aerial imagery, and the perfect gift for the drone enthusiast you know.
Sony 65-inch 4K Ultra HD HDR TV at $1,399.99, instead of $1,799.99
If you’ve bought yourself a PS4 Pro recently, or want to view Netflix content at its best, the Sony XBR-65X850D is a great choice at its price – it does 4K resolution and has HDR support.
If you use VISA Checkout as your payment method on Best Buy - you don't need to use a VISA card - you can get an additional $25 checkout discount for any purchase that is $99 or over.
Google Chromecast at $25, instead of $35
The second-generation Chromecast is the perfect way to stream media to your TV from a whole bunch of services, and $25 also gets you three months of HBO Now. That in itself covers the cost of the dongle.
Apple iPad Pro 12.9” 128GB WiFi at $589.99, instead of $799.99
It’s the biggest and fastest iPad currently available from Apple, and for most people, it's more than capable as a laptop replacement. The discount helps with one of the few shortcomings that this device has - its price.
Sony DualShock 4 Controller at $36.99, instead of $59.99
Now is the perfect time to get a replacement for that worn-out controller you have. And with Sony also launching a DualShock Wireless Adaptor, you can use it on PCs too.
HTC Vive at $699.99, instead of $799.99
The Vive is currently one of two high-end virtual reality systems available, and this bundle – with the headset, two wireless controllers, and two base stations – is currently $100 off.
PlayStation 4 Pro Bundle at $399.99
There’s no discount on this one, as the PS4 Pro only just launched, but GameStop will bundle two great games – The Last of Us Remastered, and Ratchet and Clank – at no extra price.
Surface Book, Core i5 and 256GB at $1,499, instead of $1,899
Packed with a 6th-gen Intel Core i5 processor, a 13.5-inch touchscreen display, a dedicated Nvidia GeForce graphics card, and 8GB of RAM, the Surface Book represents the best of Windows laptops.
LG 34-inch Ultrawide Monitor at $274.99, instead of $699.99
The LG 34UM57-P has a 21:9 Ultrawide 2560x1080 resolution, supports Freesync technology and 5ms response time for video games. If the size isn't a deal-breaker, this is a great discount.
Intel 6th-generation Core i7 processor at $379.99, instead of $449.99
If you’re looking to build your own professional rig, the Intel Core i7-6800K is the best in its class available right now.
Sonos Play:1 at $149, instead of $199.99
Sonos has achieved near perfection with its multi-room speaker setups, and the Play:1 is the cheapest way to start on the path to wireless freedom – it has support for more streaming music services than any other.
Xbox One S 2TB at $349.99, instead of $399.99
In a world where games take up increasingly more space, investing in a 2TB console is just accepting the inevitable.
Roku 4 Streaming Player at $79, instead of $129
4K content sources are growing slowly, and the Roku 4 houses all of them under one roof for your convenience at an unbeatable price.
