Amazon’s Black Friday sale, which will stretch through November 27 (Black Friday itself), includes discounts on a range of product categories, including electronics, home and kitchen gear, Amazon smart devices, and home office must-haves.
Anyone who enjoys a strong cup of cold-brew coffee knows how expensive a cup from the local cafe can be. If you invest in the OXO Good Grips Cold Brew Coffee Maker and brew your own at home, you’ll save money in the long run. Down to $40, this cold-brew maker is simple to use and makes the boldest coffee we’ve tasted. If you have less counter space to work with, the OXO Compact Cold Brew Coffee Maker is also on sale for $24.
Our disposable hand warmer pick, the HotHands Hand Warmers (40 Pairs) are back down to $20. This is only the second deal we’ve seen for this pick, so now is a great time to stock up for the winter months if you’re looking for some cheap, lightweight hand warmers for outdoor work, an emergency kit, or the occasional venture outside to have a snowball fight.
A variant of our budget robot vacuum pick with more suction, the Max 11S strikes a nice balance between price and quality for those who are interested in robot vacuums but wary of the higher price tag. With a slim profile, it works great in small spaces and does a good job on bare floors and short-pile rugs. It’s currently the most affordable option out of any of other picks—including our budget pick—so if you’re looking for a new robot vacuum, this is a solid deal that matches the previous low.
If you’re in search of wireless earbuds, the Jabra Elite 75t are our top pick from our guide and are just shy of the lowest we’ve seen for them. Successors to the well-regarded 65t, we love their great sound, comfortable design, and simple controls. Small and light with combined with an excellent battery life, this is a great chance to save if you’re looking for an excellent new pair of Bluetooth earbuds.
Back down to $300 from $500, this is another nice chance to save on our upgrade pick for the best bookshelf speakers in all three available finishes. The KEF Q150 outperformed our top pick in all regards and our testers universally preferred them if money was no object. This deal is a significant discount and matches the second lowest price we’ve seen for a pair of these speakers. Typically these deals last for some time but it’s possible we’ll see them drop lower during the holiday season. If you’ve been thinking about upgrading your sound system at home now, this is a good price on a great option.
Down to a new low, this is a great time to pick up our runner-up pick for best microSD card. While the Samsung Evo Select’s random writeup speeds aren’t as good as our top pick, its sequential speeds are great, so it’s still a good alternative for media storage and recording.
Just above the lowest we’ve seen, this is a nice deal on our top car GPS pick, the Garmin DriveSmart 55. With best-in-class directions, driver alerts, points of interest, and free map updates—combined with the best screen we’ve seen on any GPS unit—the DriveSmart 55 stands apart from the pack. If you prefer the experience of a dedicated car GPS over just using a phone, this is a great chance to grab this top notch option on sale.
A wearable fitness tracker can help monitor your daily activity and assist you in getting the most out of your workouts. The Fitbit Charge 4 is currently down to $100 in the Rosewood colorway. Our upcoming top pick, some of the Charge 4’s new features include an onboard GPS and the ability to measure time spent in specific heart-rate zones during an activity. Simplicity of use combined with accurate measurements and a responsive touchscreen make the Fitbit stand out amongst the crowd. While this is currently only available in Rosewood, we do expect to see this price for other colors the closer we get to Black Friday. Costco members can also get it in blue for slightly less right now.
Our runner-up electric toothbrush pick, the Philips Sonicare ProtectiveClean 4100, is back down to $30 matching the lowest price we’ve seen this year. If you need a new toothbrush, the 4100 is a great option that actually tested quieter than our top pick. It offers most of the features you’d expect from your electric toothbrush—like a timer and a rechargeable battery—but has a more limited and expensive brush head selection.
With a new streaming service popping up seemingly every other day (looking at you, Peacock and HBO Max), investing in a media streaming device is a surefire thing. Down to $30 from $45, this deal is just a dollar more than the previous lowest price we’ve noted. It’s also the best price we’ve seen in almost a year so it’s a good time to buy if you’re interested in a media streaming device.
Our top Bluetooth tracker pick is down to $18 right now. Though, it’s not the best price we’ve seen on the Tile Mate (2020), it’s still worth considering if you you’re tired of losing your keys. In the latest iteration, the Bluetooth range is expanded to 200 feet and, similar to the 2019 version, it contains a rechargeable battery with a longer lifespan.
A smart display is like a speaker and tablet mashup, and if you’re interested in one that’s compatible with Alexa then consider this deal. The Amazon Echo Show 8 can be used for video calls with family, recipe preparation or even as a baby monitor. Matching what we saw for Prime Day, this is a great price for this versatile smart-device. A mid-sized touchscreen combined with nice speakers and a decent camera, if you already use any of the myriad of Amazon services, this option will integrate well into your life.
Down to a new low of $29 form $40, this is a new low price on our bento-style kids lunch box for hot food. The plastic OmieBox comes with an insulated food jar, making it the only bento we found that can carry hot and cold foods. Its parts are also easily replaceable. There are multiple colors on sale but they’re available through separate listings. Purple, pink, blue, and teal are also discounted, in addition to the sunshine yellow color.
Our runner-up Wi-Fi router pick offers fewer features than our top pick for a lower price, but in most cases it can keep up in throughput, responsiveness, and ease of setup. This deal is a new low price and makes our runner-up pick about $50 cheaper than our top pick. It’s an especially good option if your house isn’t larger than our 2,300-square-foot-test home.

Ozeri Pronto Digital Multifunction Kitchen and Food Scale
Deal price: $7; street price: $15
Read our review of the best kitchen scale.
Available for $7 in silver on black when you clip the on-page coupon, this deal is the lowest we’ve seen our budget kitchen scale. Similar to our top pick in looks and feel, the Ozeri Pronto Digital Multifunction Kitchen and Food Scale was even slightly more accurate during testing, particularly with heavier weights. However, it was a little slower when it came to reading smaller weights and it automatically shuts off after only two minutes. Still, if you’re looking for an affordable and attractive scale for your kitchen, this discount is a great chance to save.
Update: Now down an additional $1, the lowest markdown we’ve seen for this 2 packs of 2 deal. A deal on a two-pack of Chuckit Ultra Balls is back and it’s perfect for you fetch-obsessed pup. The pack is down to $5, but there’s an order minimum of two per purchase bringing the total to $10 for four balls. If your dog loves to play but their toys tend to get worn down easily, it wouldn’t be a bad idea to have some of these stocked up. The medium has the same bounce and size as a tennis ball, but it’s much tougher so it can withstand a good amount of chomping and chewing. We saw this same deal recently and noted there was a slight increase in street price. Still, it’s a decent discount and well worth it for your pooch.
This $23 deal isn’t the best price we’ve seen for the Amazon Kindle Paperwhite Water-Safe Fabric Cover, but it’s still a nice opportunity to snag a top pick on sale. With a pleasant-feeling fabric exterior that is also water-safe, our this pick is the good case for anyone with a 10th Gen Kindle Paperwhite. Available in charcoal black, marine blue, and canary yellow.
Down to the lowest price we’ve ever seen, this is a nice drop on our runner-up pick for best indoor security cam. This cam records 24/7, has a higher picture quality than most, links to other smart-home devices, and delivers alerts reliably with less false alarms, but for a price: you’ll need the Nest Aware monthly subscription to view recordings and create activity zones alerts.
If your family has a tablet and you want it to be more than a game-playing and video-watching device, or if you’re trying to find apps for your smartphone that will do more than keep your kids occupied in a pinch, we have some great suggestions. The Osmo system uses physical game pieces in conjunction with the device’s screen, making scripting and coding tangible and accessible for pre-readers. It’s down to a new low price of $56 from $75.
If you’re interested in getting a little help around the house with a new robot vacuum, this is an excellent chance to save on our upcoming upgrade pick. The S4 Max is nearly identical to our previous upgrade pick, the S4, with the main differences being a stronger suction, nearly double the battery life, and an enhanced map-saving system. For just a little more than what we normally see the S4 go for, this is an amazing deal for this impressive and efficient robo-vac.
Our top kids scooter is once again matching the lowest price we’ve seen when you clip the on-page coupon.

In addition, its high-quality build delivers a smooth, responsive ride that will fill any child with joy.
Zinus Moiz Wood Platform Bed Frame (Queen Standard)
Deal price: $103; street price: $170
Read our review of the best platform bed frames under $300.
For those seeking a stylish but not too heavy platform bed frame, the Zinus Moiz Wood Platform Bed Frame is down to an all-time low in the standard queen size of the natural finish. We found that the Zinus was not only the lightest of all the options we recommend, but also one of the easiest to assemble solo. Stable and supportive while only weighing in at around 58 pounds, this frame is a perfect option for anyone who moves frequently, or has to navigate steep steps or narrow doors.
The first deal we’ve posted and the lowest price we’ve seen so far, this is a nice chance to save on one of our top USB phone chargers. The Aukey Omnia is one of the smallest power bricks available that will charge your phone at the fastest speed it can handle. It’s tied for the top spot in our guide, and we basically just recommend whichever one is cheaper. Today, it’s the Aukey Omnia, so you should grab it while you can.
If you’re looking for a rechargeable battery charger that is powered by either USB-C or Micro-USB, the EBL 6201 is a great option. Normally around $13, it’s currently on sale through Amazon for $10. This pick charges both AA and AAA batteries.
Right now you can snag our top pick for the best earbuds under $50, the 1More Piston Fit BT Earbuds, for only $19—beating our previous low by $1. These neckband-style wireless earbuds offer a balanced, clear sound that our testers thought was far better than expected from $30 earbuds. They’re comfortable, water-resistant, sound great, and come with a 1-year warranty.
If you can’t get the top corkscrew pick we recommend for opening wine, we think our runner-up pick is a great option. The OXO Steel Corkscrew works well and is comfortable to hold, but it’s more expensive than our top pick. Right now, you can pick it up for $12 when you clip the on-page coupon.
If you’re looking for a great tumbler, our top pick is currently back on sale for $23 in most available colors. This slim, powder-coated tumbler easily fits in hands and cupholders. Snag this pick if you want a great commuter vessel to enjoy your beverage on the go.
Update: Now down to $135 from Embark with code CYBERHEALTH and from Amazon. Your mixed breed may look like it’s part beagle, but how can you really be sure? To answer the burning questions of your pooch’s pedigree or to ease your mind about potential health concerns, we recommend the Embark Breed and Health Dog DNA Test Kit. Just shy of the lowest price we’ve seen, our top dog DNA test pick is down to $139 with code BFHEALTH. Embark’s breed results are 95 to 99 percent accurate thanks to its research-grade DNA genotyping database that covers over 350 breeds and screens for about 190 genetic health conditions and traits. The tests aren’t independently verified, but Embark is the only company in our guide that has a policy of contacting pet owners about potentially worrisome results.
An ancillary category to the wearable sleeping bag is the poncho-style warmer. They’re more suited to situations where you care what other people think of you but need another layer to go over already bulky clothing. We speak of them in our guide to wearable sleeping bags and the Honcho Poncho is made by a well respected brand with many good reviews. This drop from $115 to $86 is a solid deal if you’re planning a winter outing and need additional layers.
If you’re still interested in purchasing the DJI Osmo Mobile 3, this is a new low price for the gimbal that also comes as part of a bundle with some useful accessories. It’s a former pick in our guide and has been replaced by the Mobile 4 but it’s still a nice option that stabilizes video well and has excellent customer support. This bundle includes the Osmo Mobile 3, a power cable, storage pouch, wrist strap, anti-slip pads, an additional Osmo Grip tripod, and a nice Osmo-branded carrying case.
A pepper mill is a great addition to any kitchen, and our electric pick is down to $14. The Eparé Battery Operated Pepper Mill has a ceramic grinding mechanism that produces consistent results with the push of a button. It requires 4 AA batteries that make this model a little top heavy, but it finely grinds pepper and was the quietest electric model we tested.
Instant Pot Duo Evo Plus 8-Quart Electric Pressure Cooker
Deal price: $90; street price: $140
Read our review of the best electric pressure cooker.

If you’re humidifying an exceptionally dry and large room, the Levoit LV600HH is our pick for tackling demanding jobs. Once again down to $77, this matches the lowest we’ve seen. With its 6 liter (1.5 gallon) tank, the beautifully designed LV600HH is rated for rooms as large as 700 square feet and can go more than 24 hours between refills. Note that it needs to be placed on a table or other elevated surface to be totally effective, and although it is fairly quiet, it does have an audible hum that can be annoying if you’re sitting or sleeping within a few feet of it.
Available for $80 in black when you clip the on-page coupon, this is the lowest price we’ve seen for the Vitruvi Stone Diffuser, our smaller, stylish essential oil diffuser pick. Deals on this stone diffuser are rare, so if you’re looking for a good compact option, this is a great opportunity to save on an easy-to-use and attractive pick.
