On tech, we’ve seen the biggest cuts go to last year’s models, as per usual, and that’s not always a bad thing—most of the time, you’re getting 95% of the specs that matter for much less than the price of the newer model. But now that we’re into Black Friday proper, we’re seeing actual discounts on brand new models, too, like Apple Watch Series 9, the updated M3 MacBook Pros, and Sony’s XM5 headphones. Which is to say, if you’ve got a wishlist from a year of tech drops, now’s the time to move.
Beyond tech, we’ve found price drops on robot vacuums, sleep products like sheets and comforters, luggage, TVs, workout clothes, fitness gear, and menswear basics, as well as kitchen appliances for brewing coffee and blending smoothies. From Hyperice massagers to fancy espresso machines and your favorite pair of Levi’s, you’ll likely see some sort of a deal on coveted goods at Amazon—today, or sometime between now and Cyber Monday.
We’ll be adding in new deals (and culling old ones) as the Black Friday days of reckoning continue, so stop back and say hi every so often.

Best Amazon Black Friday Deals: Tech
OLED 65″ BRAVIA XR A75L Series 4K OLED TV
Buying a TV at any other time of year would be a damn foolish mistake. This mid-range OLED from Sony comes with special features for PlayStation gamers, but anyone will appreciate the deep blacks that come with a true OLED display.
The Frame 50″ QLED Smart TV
Samsung doesn’t make the only art TV, but it does make the only one worth buying. This smart TV will display artwork when not in use, removing the home decor dead zone created by most flatscreens.
27-Inch Odyssey Gaming Monitor
Samsung’s curved gaming monitors are works of art, but unless you’re a pro-gamer, they’re also overkill. This gaming monitor can also be used for work, and at the end of the day, it has a 165hz refresh rate for smooth gaming.
QuietComfort Ultra Wireless Earbuds
The newest earbuds from Bose introduce improved noise cancelation and spatial audio. These GQ-tested earbuds are also supremely comfortable, and they just got their first price drop for Amazon’s Black Friday sale.
Get an AirTag for all of your favorite accessories. You can even put one on your dog.
Video Doorbell Pro 2 with Floodlight Cam
Not all Amazon “bundles” actually save you meaningful money, but this one does. And if it deters just one thief from walking off with a holiday present, you’ll save even more.
3.1ch Soundbar and Subwoofer
The only downside to your teched-out new TV? The garbage integrated speakers. Fix that with 2-piece set that acts like four speakers. (And no, you don’t need a Samsung TV for these to sing.)
2023 MacBook Pro with M3 Pro Chip
The M1 MacBook Air blew tech reviewers away when it first came out, but if you need the best possible MacBook for creative work, then you’ll be happy to know that Apple’s latest powerhouse powerbook is getting its first discount.
Amazon must hate Google, which is eating Amazon’s lunch with the Google Nest smart home products. Of course, since you’re buying this on Amazon, it probably doesn’t sting too badly.
Nest WiFi Pro Mesh Routers
The work from home era has been extended indefinitely, for better or worse. Eliminate slow speeds and dead zones with the new mesh WiFi system from Google. You’ll still have to wait for Zoom to update before joining that meeting, of course.
Quest 2 All-in-One Virtual Reality Headset
Meta may have dropped the Quest 2’s successor recently, but every VR game and app on the Quest platform still works for the 2. That makes it maybe the smarter move for dipping your toes in virtual waters.
Madden NFL 24, Digital Code (Xbox)
INZONE H3 Wired Gaming Headset
Use this wired PlayStation headset to outmaneuver your opponents (thanks to spatial sound), then trash talk them relentlessly. Just remember to keep it PG-13, even though your 12-year-old opponents definitely won’t.
Beats’ first Studio Buds somehow fit active noise canceling and amazing sound into an extremely tiny, comfortable set of ear buds.

For the past three years, LG has made the world’s best TV. And as Amazon sets the stage for Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales, you can save $200 on this awe-inspiring OLED.
Studio Pro Noise-Cancelling Headphones
Beats may not be able to beat Sony or Bose in noise cancelation, but 40 hours of battery life deserves a nod.

Roomba Combo j5+ Self-Emptying Robot Vacuum & Mop
The new self-emptying hybrid from iRobot does everything except play music.

If you’ve ever accidentally bought a Kindle without selecting “No lockscreen ads,” then you know it’s the worst $30 you’ve ever saved. Inevitably, the lockscreen will display ads for tacky romance novels, so pay a little bit more for this version, which is thankfully advertisement-free.

Shark’s on the hunt for a new piece of the smart home market: air purifiers. We haven’t used this one, but the specs seem solid: HEPA filter, a night mode that runs quieter and dims the screen, and an odor-neutralizing system that also scents the air. Plus, the brand tends to overperform for the price—and this price is more than $100 cheaper than usual.

This is the lowest price we’ve seen for a body groomer that’s perfect for manscaping—and womanscaping, and personscaping.
