Cyber Monday is upon us once again, and with it comes some of the best deals of the year. If you’ve been waiting to scoop up a new TV or appliance or smart-home device, or are looking for special gifts for loved ones, now’s the time to buy. Best Buy is rolling out its discounts early, but not everything that’s on sale is a good deal — and there’s an overwhelming amount of stuff to sort through. To help you find the deals that are worth your money, I’ve rounded up the best products we’ve covered, many of which I’ve tested or reported on in my years reviewing tech in nearly every category, as well as those recommended by experts and our colleagues at the Verge and beloved by celebrities.

In addition to steep discounts on tech, Best Buy has kitchen deals, toy deals, and home deals with many of the same deals we saw on Black Friday. Don’t forget to sign up for our email newsletter for even more sales coverage.

I’m finished updating this post, but these deals may still be going on for a while. Take a look at all of the Strategist’s Cyber Monday guides here, and sign up for our email newsletter to peep the best deals as they come up.

Audio deals

Apple’s latest generation of AirPods Pro is one of our favorite wireless earbuds and features better noise cancellation and audio transparency, plus a new speaker in the case that makes it easier to hunt down when they’ve gone missing. This is the lowest price we’ve seen on these earbuds, so act fast.

Google’s pro-level earbuds are down to the lowest price we’ve seen right now, too. They feature impressive battery life, multi-device pairing, noise cancellation, and transparency mode, and they work great with Samsung or Apple devices.

If you want a good pair of wireless earbuds to go with your Android phone, get Samsung’s Galaxy Buds 2, which Verge editor and reviewer Chris Welch says nail the basics with style. They feature a compact and sleek design, solid sound quality, and active noise cancellation.

From $230

Our favorite wireless earbuds for Samsung users (they’re great for any Android user, you just get more benefits with a Galaxy device), are down to the lowest price we’ve seen in months. They’re a great way to tune out the noise when you’ve gotta focus, or just enjoy a good tune.

Our favorite wireless earbuds for noise cancellation are down to one of the lowest prices we’ve seen.

Apple AirPods Max
$450
$450

Apple’s over-ear noise-cancelling headphones are down to one of the lowest prices we’ve seen, so now’s a good time to snag a pair.

Logitech’s portable, durable speaker (a Strategist favorite) is available in a two-pack, so you can pair them together for a stereo experience without all the cables. They are compact enough to bring along to a get-together, can float in water, and are waterproof enough to use in the shower.

$160

Our favorite Bluetooth speaker with wireless charging is down to one of the lowest prices we’ve seen all year. “The Roam was among the most crisp-sounding portable speakers I’ve tested,” writes former Strategist writer Jordan Bowman, who also noted the Roam’s ability to charge with a Qi wireless charger, as well as connect with any other speaker in Sonos’s ecosystem.

Our favorite wireless headphones are down to one of their lowest prices, and we think they’re well worth it. “The XM4s are some of the best sounding noise-canceling headphones I’ve ever tried,” Bowman says.

Laptop deals

Need a laptop that can transform into a tablet in a pinch? Microsoft’s Surface Pro 9 is a snappy computer with a built-in kickstand for multiple viewing angles, stylus support for illustration and note-taking, and an eye-catching design that won’t leave your eyes wandering after a year or two. “While the detachable form factor is becoming more common across the laptop space, there are still few convertible models as tried and true as the Surface,” says Monica Chin, a writer at the Verge, “and fewer still with an accessory ecosystem as excellent as the one Microsoft provides.”

Smart-home deals

Tired of having to get up every time the house gets a little too warm? A smart thermostat can help by letting you change the temperature with just a few taps in your smart-home app of choice or a quick bark at your voice assistant. It can also program itself based on parameters you set and your daily schedule, so you don’t have to do too much manual adjusting if you don’t want. It’s at one of the lowest prices we’ve seen right now, so grab it while you can.

Our pick for the best self-emptying robot vacuum for pets, the Roomba i7+ is at one of the lowest prices we’ve ever seen right now. The i7+ even pairs with Alexa and Google Assistant, so you can start a cleaning sesh without needing to leave your desk.

If you’re cool with slightly older tech, Amazon’s third-generation Echo Dot is down to one of the lowest prices we’ve seen, and it still works great for controlling all the smart devices in your home.

It’s not as good a smart display as something like the Google Nest Hub, but Lenovo’s Smart Clock, which supports Google Assistant, has a built-in wireless charger so you can plop your phone down at night without having to fumble for your charging cable.

Media deals

Black Friday can be a great time to snag a new TV if you find the right deal. LG’s C2 TV provides excellent contrast and black levels as well as fast performance, and Welch says it may be the best gaming TV you can buy, thanks to four HDMI ports that all support up to a 120Hz refresh rate and nifty software that triggers anytime the TV detects a gaming-console connection.

Most newer TVs let you stream directly without any additional gear, but it’s usually beneficial to snag a dedicated streamer instead. Google’s latest Chromecast comes in 1080p and 4K variants, both of which are affordable ways to give your TV access to any streaming service you’d like. I also think it’s one of the best tech gifts to get this year.

Our best overall sound bar, which comes recommended by several experts, is down to one of the lowest prices we’ve ever seen. It sounds great on its own, but you can build your audio rig over time, since the Arc pairs with Sonos’s other products as well.

Kitchen deals

If you don’t need all the digital controls, Cuisinart’s air fryer can handle everything from frozen fries to a quick bagel in the morning before heading to work.

If you want a mug that’ll keep your coffee warm even when you forget it’s there, we recommend the Ember mug. Right now, it’s discounted to one of the lowest prices we’ve seen.

Home deals

If you’ve been waiting to nab one of the most powerful stick vacuums available, now’s your chance. Dyson’s top-of-the-line V15 is at the lowest price we’ve seen. Strategist senior editor Winnie Yang is a fan: “It has a laser sighting head, which helps illuminate all the dust on hard surfaces and makes it easy to see spots you’ve missed,” she says. “It also senses when there’s more dirt and automatically adjusts suction.” You’ll get a bunch of different attachments, like a soft dusting brush and a crevice tool to vacuum those hard-to-reach spots.

Gaming deals

If you don’t need top-of-the-line 4K gameplay, the Xbox Series S is a powerful console capable of playing the latest-generation games at a 1080p resolution. It’s down to one of the lowest prices we’ve seen this year, and it’s a great gift for the gamer in your life.

Nintendo games rarely go on sale, but right now, one of the Switch’s best games is down to the lowest price we’ve seen. If it’s still in your gaming backlog, now’s the chance to grab it.

Tablet deals

Apple’s larger-screened M1 iPad Pro is perfect for note-taking and anything from a quick doodle to an in-depth illustration. This is one of the lowest prices we’ve seen for this tablet.

If you need a stylus to go with your new iPad, or you’re looking for a good stocking stuffer for the techie in your life, I recommend Apple’s second-generation Pencil. Right now, it’s down to the lowest price we’ve ever seen.

If you need a case that’ll turn your iPad into a laptop, we recommend Apple’s Magic Keyboard. This isn’t the lowest price we’ve seen, but it’s still a better discount than you can usually get on otherwise pricey gear.

If you’ve got the larger iPad Pro, that Magic Keyboard is discounted right now too. Given its typically steep price, this is a good deal.

Kindle Paperwhite - 16 GB
$110
$110

The Kindle Paperwhite is one of my favorite gifts to give to the readers in my life, and right now it’s down to one of the lowest prices we’ve seen since the latest model got a hefty price upgrade.

Our favorite keyboard case for the iPad is down to the lowest price we’ve seen since the summer, and it’s the best way to get work done from your iPad.

Smart-watch deals

Samsung’s latest smart watch is down to its lowest price yet, and it’s a great option for anyone with an Android device. Unlike the regular Watch5, it has a rotating physical bezel that makes interacting with the software easier and more fun, and it has a good deal of health and fitness tracking for you to keep an eye on.

New Apple products rarely go on sale, but right now Apple’s new rugged smartwatch is discounted by just enough to buy yourself an extra watch band or download a few fancy fitness apps to try out.

Parenting deals

Our best overall baby monitor is down to one of the lowest prices we’ve ever seen. This over-the-crib monitor is perfect for parents who want to keep a close eye on every bit of data they can get their hands on.

The updated version of our favorite wearable breast pump for usability is down to nearly the lowest price we’ve seen all year. “Once I got the hang of it, the Willow yielded the most milk for me in the shortest amount of time,” writes Strategist contributor Sara Gaynes Levy.

The Strategist is designed to surface the most useful, expert recommendations for things to buy across the vast e-commerce landscape. Some of our latest conquests include the best acne treatments, rolling luggage, pillows for side sleepers, natural anxiety remedies, and bath towels. We update links when possible, but note that deals can expire and all prices are subject to change.
