Kindle, $50 | Kindle Paperwhite, $100 | Kindle for Kids, $60 | Kindle Voyage, $170 | Refurb Kindle Paperwhite, $80 | Refurb Kindle Voyage, $120


While not nearly as good as the Prime-only deals we saw last month, if you’re in the market for a Kindle e-reader this holiday season, you can save $20-$30 today on three different models.

The $50 price point on the entry-level model brings it into impulse purchase range, but just remember that it doesn’t include a backlight. The $170 Voyage is really nice, and I own one myself, but it’s probably not worth the $70 price premium over the excellent Paperwhite.

If you don’t mind buying a refurb (and since they include a full warranty, you shouldn’t), you can also opt for a Paperwhite for $80, or a Voyage for $120, both excellent prices. And don’t forget that most major library systems let you borrow e-books.

TCL US5800 55-inch 4K Roku TV, $400 | TCL UP130 55-inch 4K Roku TV, $500


TCL’s 2016 4K TVs aren’t technological marvels, but they might just represent the best value in the TV world, and two separate 55-inch models are on sale for all-time low prices right now.

Today on Amazon, the TCL UP130 is down to $500, and the US5800 is just $400. They’re both 55 inches, and they both include built-in Roku software, but the UP130 though includes an enhanced remote with a microphone, 802.11ac Wi-Fi (rather than 802.11n), and improved styling. As far as picture quality goes, they should be essentially identical, so it’s up to you whether the extra accoutrements are worth $100.


Samsung 120W sound bar with wireless subwoofer, $83 | Samsung 300W sound bar with wireless subwoofer, $148


Last week, Black Friday pricing started early on a 300W Samsung sound bar with a wireless subwoofer. But if $148 is a little more than you were hoping to spend, a 120W model was just knocked down to $83, an all-time low. Needless to say, either one would be a massive upgrade over your TV’s built-in speakers.

The Godfather Collection, $17


Amazon’s making you an offer you can’t refuse: The Godfather Collection includes remastered versions of all three Godfather films, plus a bonus disc full of special features, all for just $17 in today’s Gold Box. This set rarely dips below $30, so if you’ve been meaning to pick it up for yourself, or just have a film buff on your holiday shopping list, you won’t want to miss out.

DualShock 4, $38


Basically every retailer under the sun has promised DualShock 4 controllers for $40 on Black Friday, but Newegg’s eBay storefront has them for $38 right now. If you’re planning on buying a PS4 in the coming weeks, this is a no-brainer.

21.5-inch display, $79 | 22-inch display, $80 | 23.6-inch display, $100


Black Friday savings aren’t limited to big, fancy 4K monitors (like this one). If you’re in the market for basic 1080p screens to build out a multi-monitor workstation, Amazon’s got you covered today.

Dremel 3000, $45


You might not need to use a Dremel all that often, but it’s one of those things everyone should keep in their tool box, if only for sanding wood and carving jack-o’-lanterns. Today only as part of a Gold Box deal, Amazon’s discounting the Dremel 3000 to an all-time low of $45.

The Dremel 3000 features a variable speed motor that can spin anywhere from 5,000 to 35,000 RPM, and includes 28 accessories to get you started with projects all around the house. Even if you already own one yourself, this would be a fantastic gift for someone that doesn’t. Just remember that this is a Gold Box deal, meaning this price is only available today, or until sold out.
