Amazon started rolling out its deals weeks ago, but Black Friday is finally here, and we’ve noticed even more good finds. Since there’s a lot to wade through, we’ve singled out the best things that are actually worth buying, including everything from a vacuum cleaner designed to tackle pet hair to expensive-looking mid-century plant stands. There are plenty of bargains on things that’d make great gifts, too, like a wireless Bluetooth speaker for a teenage cousin or an egg cooker for your friend who always hosts a holiday brunch.

Read on to see the sales we’re tracking, including Black Friday deals on furniture and home décor, fashion, and even TVs.

Black Friday tech and appliance deals

Our tech columnist David Pogue thinks Eero makes the best Wi-Fi system for making sure your whole home stays connected.


We were so shocked by the price of this MacBook Air that we quadruple-checked that it wasn’t a refurbished model. (It’s not.)

This is also an excellent price for Apple’s newest iPad.

Mophie Wireless Charge Pad

Mophie is one of only two brands Apple recommends for wirelessly charging your iPhone. At this price, you can get one for home and one for the office.

Fire TV Stick

This Fire Stick is half-price, compatible with Alexa, and yes, you can watch Disney+ with it.

This Alexa smart speaker has never been this affordable before.

Echo Show 5

Same goes for this Echo Show.

This would be a great deal for just a Ring smart doorbell (that typically retails for $200), and it’s an even better deal when an Echo Show is thrown in, too.


When it comes to smart thermostats, writer Kyle Schurman says the Nest is your best bet for integrating with other devices: “If you’re interested in a whole-home smart system that includes home security cameras, lighting systems, and smart doorbells, go with the Nest.”

Strategist managing editor Maxine Builder says the Kindle Paperwhite was the best thing she bought last year, and right now it’s the cheapest we’ve ever seen it.

Pogue thinks these noise-cancelling headphones from Sony are even better than the well-known Bose ones.

This is the lowest price we’ve ever seen for these truly wireless earbuds that would make a good gift for anyone on your list.

This Bluetooth portable printer prints credit card-sized photos straight from your phone.

Nothing brings the family together like learning you all share a bit of Neanderthal DNA.

The family dog doesn’t have to miss out on the DNA screening fun — this kit can identify over 250 different breeds.

An Amazon reviewer once called this “the Holy Grail of all cordless vacuums.”

This is the cheapest price we’ve ever seen for this robot vacuum that can handle carpets, hardwood floors, and pet hair.

This Fitbit is on sale at several retailers, but the pretty “Bordeaux” color is exclusively available on Amazon.

A solid gift for runners, this entry-level GPS watch is never this cheap.

Garmin Vívoactive 4S

This watch was just released a few months ago, so it’s very unusual to see a $50 price drop so soon. Strategist senior writer Karen Iorio Adelson bought one when it first came out and says, “it’s extremely customizable, with the ability to choose what data you see on the home screen, and lots of different ways to organize the screen while you’re running to see heart rate, current pace, lap pace, or other stats.”

Waterproof Bluetooth speakers are always a hit among teens.
