Now onto those awesome tech deals! All of these things are recommended by me because I either use them, or I believe in them and know that they are good products. I don’t recommend just anything!
I have never purposely gone out shopping on Black Friday. I think I ended up in a store once without thinking about it. I do not recommend it! However, I will sit at home and possibly get up early to catch a few online deals. Below are some of the things that caught my eye. Some of these may have already been mentioned in my post, Gift Guide: 15+ Devices Smart Home Devices To Make Your Home Smarter. But the deals are so good that they need to be mentioned again!
Or, if you know that you want to add some smart home items, pick up the new Amazon Echo Plus with built-in hub for only $119.99. It can control various smart home devices. And keep a watch, because bundle deals keep popping up that include smart bulbs and other items to get your smart home started.
The ever-popular Amazon Fire Stick is a crazy deal at only $24.99! This makes a great gift. You can turn any television with an HDMI port into a Smart TV.
Best Buy has the Microsoft XBox One S 500gb Gaming Console for only $189.99! I may just have to get this one.
If you need a new television I highly recommend a Vizio! I have 2 of them in my home that we are using and love. Right now, Best Buy has a 48″ 1080p Smart HDTV for $339.99. Need smaller? A 32″ version is only $199.99!
You know that I am a huge fan of Lenovo laptops. If you are looking for one for a student, or want to gift one to someone who does not yet have a laptop this 15.6″ Lenovo AMD A6-Series is a great option. At only $279.99 from Best Buy it’s a great starter option.
You will probably take a ton of photos over the holidays. If you still do that with a real camera versus your smartphone you need to make sure that you have enough storage! I am still amazed by the size of the SD cards that we can can now. You can pick up a 128GB Sandisk Ultra SDXC Memory Card for only $34.99.
I had the pleasure of testing a Sonos system some time back and the sound was incredible! Sonos now offers the Sonos One with Amazon Alexa. Play your music with great sound, and access everything you love about your Amazon Echo. Now priced at only $174.00 on Amazon it’s a great deal.
Listening to music while on the go requires great headphones. Beats by Dr. Dre are still some of the best out there. Right now you can get the Beats Studio2 Wireless Headphones for only $159.99.
I am a huge advocate of carrying a portable charger. One of my favorite brands is mophie. Best Buy now has the mophie Power Boost 5,200 mAh Portable charger in several colors for only $9.99! These make great stocking stuffers.
These are just a few of the items that caught my eye while browsing my favorite shopping sites. What great deals have you found?
