By now you’ve probably seen Amazon’s Happy HoliDeals page, which has lots of miscellany but also a smattering of Amazon gear. Before you buy a single item from the latter category — Echo smart speakers, Fire tablets, Kindle e-readers and so on — take note: The company just revealed the full slate of Amazon Black Friday device deals, many of which rival what we saw during this year’s Prime Day. In the meantime, we continue to see new price cuts on non-Amazon stuff, like the — a nice markdown from $350 for what’s arguably the best active noise-canceling headphone out there.
Here’s a list of our favorite gear that’s on sale at Amazon right now, followed by the Amazon device deals that start as of Nov. 22. Pro tip: If you’re planning to buy any of the aforementioned Amazon devices right now, be sure to visit (and sign up for) TopCashback first; the cash-back service is offering an unparalleled 10% rebate on Amazon devices.
Amazon Black Friday deals available now
As expected, some of the best early discounts are on Amazon devices (though some of the items below will be even cheaper in a few weeks, as noted above). But I found a few noteworthy non-Amazon deals as well, so check those out, too.
Between Bose, Sony and now Apple AirPods Pro, active noise-canceling headphones are all the rage. And now, we’re seeing an old favorite from Sennheiser that’s currently just $80 at Amazon — down from $200. We reviewed the nearly identical Sennheiser HD 4.50 BTNC two years ago, and found it to be a formidable Bose competitor at that $200 price. That model is down to $108 on Amazon, but this model — the HD 4.50 SE — has literally the exact same specs, aside from some cosmetic color differences.
Actually, there are savings to be had on several Insignia models, including the 32- and 39-inch ones. But if you just need something small for the den, bedroom or the like, it’s hard to beat a full-featured Fire TV for $100.
Actually, this app-powered garage-door controller originally sold for $130, so in a way you’re saving $100. It’s been steadily creeping down in price, but this is the lowest I’ve seen it. It’s compatible with most garage doors, and its usefulness cannot be overstated. Arguably the best $30 you can spend on your house right now.
