Black Friday gaming deals are already underway, even if the big day is still days away. We’ve been seeing gaming deals crop up all week, with more breaking cover every hour. We’ve seen steep discounts on Xbox Series X|S, Nintendo Switch OLED, and, well, not on the PS5 itself yet, but PS5 SSDs are down to the lowest price we’ve ever seen.

We’ve spun up this live blog to share the best Black Friday deals with you as we spot them, as well as occasional advice and warnings about what you should and shouldn’t impulse buy when it comes to gaming hardware.

If you have a particular platform in mind, we have hubs for the best Black Friday PS5 deals, Xbox Series X Black Friday deals, and Black Friday Nintendo Switch deals. We’ll be updating those consistently over the next few days but for the most up-to-date feed of deals, keep your eyes here on the live blog.

The single, most important piece of advice I’d like to leave you with is that while we are seeing steep discounts on gaming hardware, accessories, and the games themselves, it is easy to get carried away and spend more than you mean to. Make a list of what you think you need, be it new games, more storage space on your console, or a second gamepad to play co-op games, and try to stick to it.

If there’s one thing that’s better than a great Black Friday Xbox Series X deal, it’s a deal that is essentially free cash – and that’s exactly what Newegg is offering.

Right now, you can pick up a $100 Xbox Gift Card for just $86.88 at Newegg (opens in new tab), meaning you save just over $13. While it’s not a huge saving, you’re still getting extra cash to splash at the Microsoft Store. You can even use it towards purchasing an Xbox Series X if you fancy.

Has God of War Ragnarok convinced you to pick up a PS5? If so then you’ll be pleased to know we’re seeing quite a few Black Friday PS5 bundle deals (particularly in the US) right now that pack in Kratos’ latest adventure.

In our five-star God of War Ragnarok review, we said:

“Building upon the themes of its predecessor, God of War Ragnarok’s emotive narrative shines in its subtler moments, while clever evolutions to combat introduce welcome changes that advance gameplay without oversaturating it. It’s a sequel that is often as brutal as it is poignant – and a fitting next chapter in Kratos and Atreus’ journey.”

In other words, it’s one of the best PS5 games to date and not to be missed.

If you’re planning to pick up a PlayStation 5 this Black Friday, make sure you avoid the six common errors people make with the PS5. Spoiler alert: not giving your new Sony console enough room to breathe is a biggie on our list. 

While some of these errors are easily done and easily rectifiable, others could cost you extra unnecessary cash or impact your gaming experience. So make sure to check it out.

One of the best Oculus Quest 2 bundles is still going strong over at Amazon, in both the US and UK! It includes the VR headset, and digital copies of Beat Saber and Resident Evil 4 VR, all at a competitive bundle price of just $349 (opens in new tab) / £349 (opens in new tab).

In this bundle, you’re getting one of the best VR headsets along with two of the best VR games that’ll keep you occupied for months on end. Especially if you’re well into rhythm games or the ever-replayable Resident Evil 4!

Heads up! The WD_Black 1TB SN850X NVMe SSD is also discounted in the UK as part of the following PS5 Black Friday deal:

Right now, you can pick up the excellent high-end SSD from online retailer Box for just £138 (opens in new tab). That’s not quite as strong as the discount over in the US, but you’re still saving a solid £60 that could be spent on one of the best PS5 games.

Argos in the UK is currently offering a great Nintendo Switch bundle. Right now, if you pick up the Nintendo Switch Neon Console & Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Bundle for £259.99, you can add a selected game for just £20 (opens in new tab) (that’s half the price they normally are).

What’s more, the selected games include the new Pokémon Scarlet and Violet and Splatoon 3.

If you’re considering picking up a great Black Friday gaming chair deal this week, then there are four things you need to know before you buy.

After all, gaming chairs can be pricey and you want to ensure that you get the right chair for you so you can game in comfort. Not every chair is going to be suited to your size, budget, and support needs.

Speaking of PS5 SSDs, there are some great discounts on them available right now. 

In the US, there’s a chunky $150 off (opens in new tab) the WD Black SN850 1TB at Amazon. While those in the UK can pick up a Crucial X8 2TB Portable SSD for over £100 (opens in new tab) off at Amazon. 

There are plenty more PS5 SSD deals available right now, which you can check out below too. Act fast, though, as we’re seeing these SSD deals getting snapped up pretty quickly.

Here at TRG, we’re keeping a keen eye out for PS5 SSD deals. That’s because some of the best PS5 games are pushing upwards of 200GB recently, meaning they very quickly use up the PlayStation 5’s 667GB of space. So the extra storage granted by a PS5 SSD is very welcome.

But, there’s a fair bit to consider when looking for an SSD, including read and write speed. Fortunately, our Hardware Editor Aleksha McLoughlin has explained whether PS5 SSD read and write speeds really make a difference

None of these take your fancy? Check out our best Black Friday TV deals roundup to save on a great set.

The DualSense and Xbox Wireless Controller are great and all but if you’d rather have a customized gamepad then consider heading over to SCUF (opens in new tab) which is offering 20% off all its custom controllers right now. 

I warn you, these premium gamepads are fairly pricey, but if you’ve been umming and ahhing about whether to create the neon PS5 controller of your dreams, then now is a perfect time.

All you have to do is enter the code ‘CYBER20’ at checkout and you’ll get your discount.

We’ve already seen some sizeable discounts on PS Plus in the UK (which you will find further down this blog). But we’re expecting these deals could get even better over Black Friday weekend.

After all, Black Friday is the best time to renew your PS Plus membership (or sign up if you haven’t yet). That’s because if you pick up a discounted 12-month membership now then, when it comes to renewing next year, it’ll be Black Friday again and you’ll get another discount. It’s a genius strategy. 

Just remember that PS Plus cards have been replaced with gift cards since the subscription service revamp, but there are still discounts to be had and we’ll share them with you right here.

If you’re an Xbox Series X or Xbox Series S owner, I highly advise you try to pick up a discounted Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription this Black Friday. 

Microsoft’s subscription service packs in access to a library with over 100 games, all the benefits of Xbox Live Gold, and access to cloud gaming. It’s great value for money, especially when you consider that new Xbox exclusives are added to the library on day one, when purchasing them alone could set you back over £60/$60.

Usually, I would recommend picking up 12 months Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription but right now there are no decent deals on this membership. There are however discounts on a 3-month membership, which I advise picking up if you don’t want to risk waiting for a 12-month only for it not to appear during Black Friday weekend (though I don’t think that will be the case).

Julian needs a rest. So it’s a somewhat refreshed Vic Hood, TRG’s Associate Editor, taking over for the next few hours.

Black Friday is now fast approaching, so I imagine the deals are going to ramp up a fair bit today before the biggest discounts drop tomorrow on PS5, Xbox Series X and Nintendo Switch products.

If you’re on the hunt for a Switch this Black Friday (or are a new Switch owner) then make sure you avoid these 5 most common mistakes people make with the Nintendo Switch. You’ll thank us later.

AA battery

This isn’t the most exciting purchase, I get it, but, if you’re anything like me, then every time your Xbox Wireless controller runs out of charge you think to yourself ‘I should really bulk buy some batteries’. Well, now’s your chance as, for Black Friday, some bog standard AA batteries have been reduced down to a nice affordable price.

You can either get yourself a nice 4-pack of AA high-capacity rechargeable batteries for $5.59 (opens in new tab), down 60% from their usual $13.99 or, if you want to make sure you’re really never going to run dry, by yourself a pack of 24 batteries for $32.29 (opens in new tab), down from $37.99.

You’re not left out in the UK. Why not get a 100-pack for £23.79 (opens in new tab), down 32% from £34.99. If that seems excessive, you can get the smaller and much more cheaply priced 40-pack for £9.38 (opens in new tab), down from £11.03.

Thanks to a free upgrade, you can get Horizon Forbidden West for PS4 and PS5 extremely cheaply in the US and UK right now. GameStop and Tesco are selling off old stock of the PS4 game for just $29 (opens in new tab) and £20 (opens in new tab), respectively. Sony also lets you freely upgrade the PS4 version to the PS5 version, even if you use a disc copy of the game.

So if you’re keen to continue Aloy’s adventure and have been holding off for a good deal, this may be the best you see for a while as the cheapest we’ve seen Forbidden West go for before is £24.99.

PS5

What’s this, an actual discount on a PS5? I didn’t know such deals could exist! 

In a year where the price of the PS5 has actually increased and stock is still in short supply, it’s amazing to see a retailer has actually knocked money off the hot ticket console. But, if you’re shopping in the UK, you can get a PS5 Digital Edition bundled Just Dance 2023 for £414.98 (opens in new tab), or with the Pulse 3D wireless headset for £458.98 (opens in new tab), down from the usual £474.98. 

Now if you’re on the fence about a PS5 vs PS5 Digital Edition, they’re basically the same except one of them doesn’t have a disc drive to play physical games. Though, there are rumors that a disc drive accessory is due to be released in 2023 alongside a PS5 Slim. Still, until Sony confirms that attachment, you’ll need to make peace with only playing games you’ve bought in the PSN store.

If you aren’t seeing a deal you like, one of the best things you can buy during Black Friday are discounted gift cards. They may not seem like an exciting purchase, but you are effectively buying the ability to apply a discount to whatever game you want.

There are currently great discounts on PSN gift cards, both in the US and UK, letting you pick up some of the best PS5 games on the cheap or even to buy a PS Plus subscription, which you should always try to top up during Black Friday

Over on Eneba, you can buy yourself a $100 PSN gift card for $82.71 (opens in new tab), saving you nearly 20% on the card’s price. Meanwhile, in the UK, at Amazon, you can buy a £75 gift card for £63.68 (opens in new tab), a £63 gift card for £56.70 (opens in new tab), and a £38 gift card for £34.20 (opens in new tab). Those may seem like odd prices, but that’s because these gift cards are meant to be for redeeming a year’s subscription of PS Plus Essential, Extra, or Premium.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2‘s been out for less than a month, but it’s already enjoying a steep discount at Walmart, dropping from its box price of $69.99 to just $55 (opens in new tab) on both PS5 and Xbox Series X|S.

Activision Blizzard games, and the Call of Duty series in particular, tend not to see big discounts. Many of the older games are still being sold at full price years after release. So to see the new game drop down to $55 is a surprise.

The shooter is seeing a similar discount in the UK, with Amazon selling Modern Warfare 2 for £56.99 (opens in new tab), down from £69.99.

This is a strange recommendation as it’s not actually much of a saving, but it’s more for if you’re struggling to lay your hands on a PS5.

You may have been eagerly refreshing our PS5 restock page to grab one of the in-short-supply consoles. Currently, to buy one through Amazon and many other stores, you need an invitation.

However, there’s a great bundle on AntOnline that will get you a PS5, a copy of God of War Ragnarok, and an extra DualSense controller in blood-like cosmic red. The bundle will set you back $609.98 (opens in new tab), which is basically what buying the God of War PS5 bundle and a discounted DualSense controller would set you back if bought separately. The advantage of this deal is that you can buy it without waiting on an invitation.

This is an appealing bundle. If I was buying a PS5, this is the game and accessory I’d be wanting to pick up, along with a discounted PS plus subscription.

Xbox Elite Controller Series 2

(Image credit: Future)

There have been some excellent Black Friday Xbox controller deals over the past few weeks, but we’re finally starting to see some deep discounts on the Xbox Elite Controller Series 2

The Elite is the highly-customizable pro controller that Microsoft released for the Xbox Series X|S and PC. It’s a fantastic gamepad that feels wonderful in the hand and can genuinely improve your game, thanks to its hair triggers and rubberized grip.

Normally setting you back $179.99, you can get an Xbox Elite Wireless Series 2 Controller for just $129.99 (opens in new tab) over at Newegg, so long as you enter the code ‘BFFDAY22’ at checkout.

While not as good as the Newegg deal in the US, you can pick up an Xbox Elite Wireless Series 2 at a discount in the UK, too. Amazon is selling the pro gamepad for £142 (opens in new tab), down from £159.99.

Walmart’s selling $10 Nintendo eShop gift cards for $9 (opens in new tab). At a time where we’re seeing $50 knocked off consoles, and games going for half-price, a $1 discount may not seem like much to shout about but when it’s money on a gift card, you’re looking at a kind of free money. A $10 game bought with a $10 gift card you bought for $9 is creating your own 10% discount on a game of your choosing.

Also, if you’re looking to give a gift to the gamers in your life, this way you aren’t running the risk of buying them a game they already own, you can give them a gift card and let them buy something for themselves.

Walmart’s reduced the $20 and $35 gift cards, too, but the reduction isn’t as good as the 10% off on the $10 gift card, so I’d recommend just buying multiple $10 gift cards.

Nintendo Switch OLED review

(Image credit: Future)

Heyo, this is a very sleepy Julian Benson, TRG’s Editor-in-Chief, logging on for the 2am to 10am shift here in the UK. What I may be lacking in energy, I am making up with in deals. I am driven by discounts, succored by savings. That’s not a turn of phrase I’d normally allow on the site, but, as I say, it’s very early in the morning.

I’ll have some fresh deals coming up shortly, but first, a little buying advice. We’re seeing some excellent bundles and discounts on the Nintendo Switch OLED, the upgraded spin on Nintendo’s hybrid console. It’s currently on offer for the lowest price we’ve ever seen it in the UK. And there are some great bundles available, too. 

Released last October and boasting a better screen, improved battery life, and snazzy color scheme, the Nintendo Switch OLED may seem like the default version of the console to buy. But, while we wait for what seems like an inevitable Nintendo Switch Pro (especially with the way recent Switch games are struggling to run on the hardware), our hardware writer Rhys Wood makes an excellent case for buying an original Nintendo Switch.

Essentially, if you plan on playing the console primarily in docked mode, then you will see none of the advantages of the Nintendo Switch OLED’s upgrades, and you’re better off getting the cheaper Nintendo Switch. Just look at the deals alongside each other (and note that the cheaper Nintendo Switches also come bundled with games and Nintendo Switch Online membership):

A Specialist in Battlefield 2042 holding a crossbow

One of the better Black Friday gaming deals that we’ve come across is Battlefield 2042 selling at one of the lowest prices on record right now in the US. You can pick up the multiplayer shooter for just $14.99 (was $40) (opens in new tab) on PS5 and also $14.99 (was $40) (opens in new tab) on Xbox Series X at Best Buy. 

The game itself offers a ton of value especially at considerably under the $20 mark on Xbox Series X and PS5. There are not only your traditional multiplayer modes, which continue to develop with the game’s recent Season 3: Escalation update, but also Portal mode, too. For the low price of entry, you can experience 128-player open warfare scenarios, which can’t really be compared to other shooters on the market right now. 

Hori Fighting Commander Octa

Do you want to make the most out of some of the best fighting games without breaking the bank? If so, you’re in luck. The Hori Fighting Commander Octa is down to just $39.99 (was $50) (opens in new tab) for a $10 saving at Amazon right now in the US. Don’t fret if you’re based overseas, though, as you can also pick up the fight pad for £39.99 (was £42) (opens in new tab) at Amazon UK, too. 

What we like the most about this fighting game controller is that you have an eight-way gate by the D-pad making certain 3D titles, such as Tekken 7, a little easier to play with analog movement instead of pure digital. This is the cheapest that we’ve seen the gamepad in the US and the UK, making now the ideal time to consider stepping up your game in the likes of Mortal Kombat and Street Fighter. 

Backbone One

(Image credit: Backbone)

Interested in having Xbox Game Pass and PlayStation Plus on the go at a reduced rate? You’re in the right place! With the cloud streaming component of the service arguably now more popular than ever, the Backbone One appears to be a good companion. This iPhone-compatible controller is selling for $74.99 (was $100) (opens in new tab) for a $25 saving. It’s the cheapest price we’re able to verify. 

On the other side of the fence, there’s the Nacon MG-X Pro which takes heavy inspiration from the Xbox Wireless Controller in approach. It’s selling for only $79.99 at Amazon (was $100) (opens in new tab) and is compatible with Android phones, so we’ve covered both bases here! 

Razer Wolverine V2 Chroma

(Image credit: Razer)

Are you someone who wants low latency for Esports titles at an equally competitive price? The Razer Wolverine V2 Chroma is currently selling for its historic lowest-ever price point at Amazon. You can get your hands on the latest wired high-tech Xbox controller for just $99.99 (was $150) (opens in new tab) for a $50 saving. It’s a return to a price we’ve only seen once this year – but it’s never been bettered! 

What we like about the Razer Wolverine V2 Chroma for Xbox Series X is how adjustable it is. You can customize your layout with reprogrammable buttons and take advantage of hairline trigger stops for less travel time. A cool touch is the mechanical microswitches in the face buttons for that satisfying clickiness. 

Demon's Souls on PS5

Hey everyone! This is Aleksha McLoughlin, TRG’s Hardware Editor here and I’m running the live blog for the next few hours!

Do you like challenging games? Furthermore, do you enjoy deep discounts on exclusive titles? Well, I have one of the most aggressive PS5 game deals for you! That’s because Demon’s Souls has come crashing down to just $29.99 at Best Buy (opens in new tab) for a huge $40 saving (over half price!).

It’s not just those in the US that can get the bleeding edge remake for a competitive price point. That’s because Demon’s Souls is also available in the UK for only £34.99 (was £70) at Game (opens in new tab), too. If you’ve never played the original PS3 release, or are looking to jump back into the kingdom of Boletaria for less.

Spiderman Miles Morales came out two years ago and still holds up as one of the most enjoyable games you can get on a PS5

These discounts on the fantastic game are a great start for those looking to expand their PlayStation library. Or maybe you just want to treat yourself and haven’t been able to find the great Black Friday PS5 deals you want. 

Either way, Spiderman Miles Morales is going for $19.99 (opens in new tab) at Target and £22.99 (opens in new tab) over at Argos. This is a great deal on a game that is usually priced at eyewatering heights.

The Nintendo Switch is an excellent console at home or on the go, but do you ever feel nervous about venturing into the unknown with it by your side? 

I have to admit that I’m yet to get a case for my Nintendo Switch Lite, and it’s been weighing on my mind; how far am I willing to push my luck? 

This bad habit may change thanks to the great Black Friday Nintendo Switch deals. It may be the best time to secure a trustworthy Switch Case. 

In the US, the sturdy RDS Industries 12″ Hard Case is currently on discount for $29.99 (opens in new tab) at Best Buy. The UK also has some cool deals with a fantastic Pokemon case priced at £12.99 (opens in new tab) at Amazon.

Who doesn’t love a good cowboy game? Thankfully it just got easier to buy the much-loved Red Dead Redemption 2, as Black Friday has given us some stellar deals. 

Over at Target, the game is currently priced at $19.99 (a $40 discount). While the UK also has some great prices, with the game sitting at £13 (opens in new tab) on Amazon. It’s the dream for any rootin’ and tootin’ cowboy fans out there. 

Best Xbox One headsets 2021

The Xbox Series X (opens in new tab) is a seriously good console, but there’s no reason you can’t make your experience better. When it comes to accessories, headsets are a definite game-changer. 

You may not think about it, but audio is crucial to getting immersed in a great story-driven single-player game. Or it can be the key to multiplayer games, where accuracy and clarity down a mic are necessary when pushing the point or coordinating attacks with your mates. 

Thankfully this Black Friday (opens in new tab), we’re seeing great deals on some of our best Xbox Series X headsets. From the ESPOS H3 headset, currently at $87.48 (opens in new tab) at GameStop, to the SteelSeries Arctis 9X on Amazon for £109.99 (opens in new tab).

Mortal Kombat X

If you love Mortal Kombat and arcade games, then this deal is perfect for you. Smyths have put its Arcade1Up Mortal Kombat Midway Legacy Edition Machine on offer, priced at £319.99 (opens in new tab)

There’s also some great prices on Mortal Combat games. Over at Amazon, Mortal Kombat 11 Ultimate (PS5) is currently 46%, sitting at a clean £13.47.

There have been some terrific Black Friday Nintendo Switch deals, but what about Switch accessories? Thankfully these amazing controllers have come in clutch. 

If you’ve been looking for a different way to enhance your Switch gaming experience, check out discounts on PowerA Enhanced Wired Controllers on Amazon for as little as $17.99 (opens in new tab).

Hello all! It’s Elie Gould here, TRG’s features writer and I’ll be taking over the live blog, lining up the best and wackiest deals right now. 

Speaking of wacky, the Xbox Series S has got something interesting up its sleeve this Black Friday. While we’ve seen some great deals in the US with it on offer for $249.99 (opens in new tab) at Best Buy. UK buyers have something of a special offer on hand. 

Over at GAME, the console is currently on offer for £199.99 (opens in new tab) in a bundle, along with a £10 GAME gift card and… an England bucket hat, just in time for the World Cup. I don’t know about you, but for me, a bucket hat is an essential bit of gaming gear.

Sonic Frontiers hasn’t even been out a month, but it’s already seeing some massive discounts over at Amazon. In the US, fans can grab the PS5 version of the game for just $35 (opens in new tab), a huge 42% saving. Meanwhile, UK buyers can still snap up the game on Xbox Series X|S for £29.99 (opens in new tab), and on Nintendo Switch for £32.95 (opens in new tab).

Turtle Beach gaming headset deal

Two of Turtle Beach’s best gaming headsets are still on sale, in the UK, over at Amazon. The Turtle Beach Stealth 600 Gen 2 is down to just £64.99 (opens in new tab) from its usual retail price of £89.99.

Meanwhile, the higher-end Turtle Beach Stealth 700 Gen 2 Max headset is down to just £119.99 (opens in new tab), whereas it usually costs a hefty £179.99. If you’ve been looking for a new headset for PS5 or Xbox Series X|S, definitely consider these excellent headsets which boast fantastic sound quality and huge battery life.

Xbox Series S is still down to its lowest price over at Amazon UK. Usually £249, the retailer’s slashed its price by £60, bringing the grand total to just £189 (opens in new tab). This is a fantastic deal if you’re still looking to jump into the current generation of consoles, albeit on a budget.

Nintendo Switch OLED Black Friday deal

(Image credit: N/A)

Another Nintendo Switch deal here, this time on the Switch OLED. Those in the UK can pick up a Nintendo Switch OLED for a record-low price of £269.99 (opens in new tab) right now at Smyths – that’s not far off the standard Switch’s RRP of £259.

While this deal is only for the console itself, you can use that £40 savings to pick yourself up one of the great Switch game deals we shared earlier today. Wahooo!

Black Friday PS5 deals

(Image credit: Future)

Unlike last year, we’re seeing a decent number of PS5 consoles and bundles available in the run-up to Black Friday (more so in the US than the UK). While these consoles and bundles aren’t seeing a discount, they’re definitely worth considering if you’re on the hunt for a PlayStation 5 this year. 

It’s also worth keeping an eye on our PS5 restock tracker, which will let you know when and where you can pick up Sony’s latest hardware.

Nintendo Switch microSD card

In the UK? A range of Nintendo Switch microSD cards are still heavily discounted at Amazon. The 64GB, 128GB, 256GB and 512GB variants are all on offer, perfect for bolstering the tiny amount of storage the Nintendo Switch OLED ships with.

The deals are as follows:

Logitech G29 PS5 racing wheel deal

(Image credit: N/A)

Looking for a PS5 racing wheel setup for games like Gran Turismo 7? The Logitech G29 racing wheel setup is still on sale in both the US and UK. It’s one of the best racing wheels you can buy, and is currently enjoying a massive discount at Amazon.

The Logitech G29’s down to $199 (opens in new tab) / £199 (opens in new tab) at Amazon right now, one of the lowest prices it’s ever dropped to. But given it’s such a good price, we expect stock to sell through fast. If you’ve been after a professional racing wheel setup, then, it’s best to act soon.

Oculus Quest 2 deal

Boy, do we have an Oculus Quest 2 deal for you. If you’ve been planning on picking up one of the best VR headsets for yourself, then you’re in luck.

This Oculus Quest 2 bundle packs in the 128GB headset, controllers, as well as Beat Saber and Resident Evil 4 VR, two of the best VR games out there. Be sure to check out this deal before it’s gone!

If you’ve not picked up Elden Ring yet then now is the perfect opportunity. In the UK, Amazon has discounted the PS5 version to just £25 (opens in new tab). The only catch is that it could take a month or two to arrive, with Amazon stating the fastest delivery would be between December 3 and January 11.  

Nintendo Switch + Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Black Friday deal

(Image credit: N/A)

This Nintendo Switch Black Friday deal might be the best we’ve seen all year. Right now you can pick up a Nintendo Switch bundle that includes the console, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and a three-month subscription to Nintendo Switch Online for $299 at Best Buy (opens in new tab) or £259 at the My Nintendo Store (opens in new tab) in the UK.

If you’ve been looking for a great Nintendo Switch bundle deal this Black Friday then you can’t go wrong with this offering. If you’re on the hunt for the OLED, then keep an eye on our Black Friday Nintendo Switch OLED deals for the biggest discounts right now.

Nintendo Switch games

If you’ve been looking for sizeable discounts on the best Nintendo Switch games, then look no further. Many top titles are currently under the $40/£40 mark right now at Amazon, making it the perfect time to expand your Switch library.

The newly released Sonic Frontiers has seen a huge discount in the UK, with a 40% discount meaning you can pick up Sonic’s latest adventure for just over £30 (opens in new tab), while Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga has had a 41% discount (opens in new tab) in the US.

PS5 DualSense Charging Station

If you’ve got more than one DualSense controller, then you should seriously consider picking up a PS5 DualSense Charging Station this Black Friday.

Easily one of the best PS5 accessories you can buy, the DualSense Charging Station allows you to charge two gamepads at the same time, saving you from swapping out controllers constantly – and right now it’s at its lowest price to date.

Right now, this essential accessory is just $22.99 at Best Buy (opens in new tab) in the US and £16.99 at Amazon UK (opens in new tab).

Most comfortable gaming chair

The best gaming chairs are often expensive. I’ve been looking at picking one up myself this Black Friday, in hope of a decent discount, because I can’t justify to myself spending a huge amount of cash right now. Thankfully, our Hardware Editor Aleksha McLoughlin has scoured the web to put together a list of the best gaming chairs under $250 for Black Friday

While there’s currently not a huge selection, you can pick up the Respawn 110 Fabric for $212.49 (opens in new tab), the Razer Enki X for $229.99 (opens in new tab), or the AutoFull Ergonomic Gamer for $249.99 (opens in new tab)

We expect a wider variety of gaming chairs to be discounted over Black Friday weekend, with some of these prices likely to fall even further.

It can be a real pain having to delete games off of your Xbox Series X or Xbox Series S, in order to make space for new ones. The Seagate Xbox Storage Expansion Card makes that less of a problem, letting you expand your Xbox storage without hassle – simply slide it into the back of your console. 

The downside is this handy card is pretty expensive. That’s why I’m relieved to see some discounts on the 1TB version in the run-up to Black Friday. Right now there’s £35 off the Seagate Xbox Expansion Card (opens in new tab) at Amazon in the UK, bringing the price down to £184.99. In the US, there’s $20 off the Expansion Card (opens in new tab), making it just under $200.

That’s still pretty pricey, but I’m hoping we see the price drop further towards the end of this week – especially as we’ve seen it reach £164.99/$189.99 previously. I’ve personally got one of these cards and find the extra 1TB storage it adds to the Xbox Series X’s 1TB means that I rarely have to delete games off my console (unless I go on an Xbox Game Pass downloading spree).

Hi folks! It’s Vic Hood, TRG’s Associate Editor. I’ll be bringing you the best Black Friday gaming deals for the next few hours before handing over to my esteemed colleague Rhys Wood. So let’s get cracking.

If you’re on the hunt for a great PlayStation 5 headset then you’re in luck. We’re already seeing discounts on some of the best PS5 headsets right now, in both the US and UK, at a variety of retailers.

In the US, you can save just over $30 on the PlayStation PULSE 3D Wireless Headset (opens in new tab), $20 on the Razer X Kaira (opens in new tab), $50 on the Astro Gaming A50, (opens in new tab)and over $90(!) on the EPOS H3 Hybrid (opens in new tab).

In the UK, too, there’s £18 off the PlayStation PULSE 3D Wireless Headset (opens in new tab) (and £20 off the Midnight Black edition (opens in new tab)), $70 off the Astro Gaming A50 (opens in new tab), nearly $30 off the Razer Kaira X (opens in new tab), and a whopping £70 off the SteelSeries Arctis 7P+ (opens in new tab).

While I expect some of these headsets will come down in price closer to the big day on Friday, if you’re wanting a discount on a great PS5 headset then you can’t go wrong with these deals.

More lightning deals have gone live at Amazon


Best Buy has launched its Cyber Monday sale with up to 50% off TVs and home products


Walmart’s Cyber Monday sale starts at midnight


Many deals carried over from Black Friday


No big new price drops so far

Cyber Monday 2022 may as well already be here. Yes, the biggest online shopping day of the year officially starts tomorrow, November 28, but thousands of deals have already launched. We’re covering the Cyber Monday sales live today, bringing you all the latest news and discounts, plus expert tips and tricks from across the TechRadar team for finding the best products at the lowest prices.

If you’re just looking for a list of the very best offers, head over to our best Cyber Monday deals page – we’re busy keeping that up-to-date with the latest discounts on everything from TVs and coffee makers to toys, home and beauty items. Otherwise, stick with us and follow the action here as it happens. 

Amazon was the first major retailer to switch its deals from Black Friday to Cyber Monday yesterday. Best Buy is also now running a Cyber Monday sale, with 50% off all manner of products, but Walmart doesn’t go live until midnight tonight.

So far the deals themselves are largely the same ones we’ve seen all week – and we’re not expecting to see many dramatic prices drops tomorrow, other than on products retailers are desperate to shift, and they’re not necessarily the ones we’d recommend. Still, there’s always an element of unpredictablily – and there are some superb deals live now – so stay tuned…

The best Cyber Monday sales this weekend

TechRadar’s deal editors have been running this Cyber Monday deals live blog throughout the weekend, with a little help from across the team. Right now, you’ve got Matt Bolton, Managing Editor. I’ll be sharing tips, tricks, and expert product insight from the whole TechRadar team, to help you grab the gear and gadgets you want at the lowest possible price. 

We’re busy searching all the top retailers for discounts on the top-performing tech, home, fitness and wellness products that have made it through our tough testing process. Sometimes we’ll surface great deals here on interesting items that we haven’t tested, too (we’ll tell you when we haven’t used a product ourselves.) And if we can find a better offer on the same product at another retailer, we’ll share that as well.

Cyber Monday Verizon deals

Alex Whitelock, Deals Editor

Verizon’s Cyber Monday deals are offering some fantastic opportunities to get a discounted phone today and some serious freebies. Regardless of whether you’re looking for an iPhone or Android device, you’ll find all of today’s best promotions laid out just down below.

So far, our favorite Cyber Monday Verizon deals are on the iPhone 14 Pro and Google Pixel 7, which are both being offered with a free smartwatch, tablet, and pair of buds. Note, these free gifts stack on top of the usual trade-in rebate or BOGO promos that you find on these devices, which means you could potentially be looking at an added value of over $1,500.

Not looking to trade in? Check out the iPhone 14 Plus, which is currently going for just $10 per month right now without the need for handing over an old device. Prepaid users will also find a whopping $300 discount up for grabs across all of the latest iPhones – a rare promotion considering Verizon’s usual deals only cover devices bought in conjunction to unlimited data plans.

Get these Sonos soundbar deals before they end!

Matt Bolton – Managing Editor, Entertainment

One of the best surprises of this year’s Black Friday weekend has been the biggest-ever price drops on Sonos soundbars. Normally, big Sonos deals have been super-rare, but the company went hard this year.

I use a Sonos Arc at home myself, and the price of $719 is excellent for a big Dolby Atmos soundbar that’s as good with music as it is with movies. But the biggest bargain is the Sonos Beam Gen 2 for $359. There’s no other soundbar that’s as compact and sounds as good for the same price. It’s big, it’s expansive, it’s exciting, and it does it for smaller TVs without demanding the space for a separate subwoofer.

The great Sonos Roam Bluetooth speaker is also a record-low price, so check out our full guide to the best Sonos Cyber Monday deals for more from the company.

Hi folks, this is Matt Bolton – Managing Editor, Entertainment here at TechRadar – and I’m taking over the live blog for the next few hours. My specialism on the site is TVs, audio and streaming, though I’ll be helping you with much more than just that. 

That said, I’m still gonna start with some soundbars, because no one can stop me…

If you’re looking to upgrade your kitchen’s gadgets then you can’t do much better than a KitchenAid stand mixer. This appliance is the perfect companion for bakers and cooks alike as it can help you prepare all your ingredients for a range of recipes.

But it’s not just a mixer; grab some attachments and you can turn your KitchenAid gadget into a whole host of useful appliances. Below you’ll find our favorite KitchenAid mixer deal from this year’s Cyber Monday and Black Friday sales, as well as a few discounted attachments that we love.

5 of the best Lego deals out there

If you’re looking to spend a few evenings or even a whole weekend away from your tech and unwind from your digital life for a while then building a Lego set is a fantastic option for you. Here are a few of the best Lego Cyber Monday deals out there right now that you do not want to miss out on.

3 of the best TVs you can buy

There are looooads of Cyber Monday TV deals available. But sometimes you just need a bit of guidance, so we asked TV expert and good TechRadar friend Henry St Leger to chose three of his favorite TVs at three different price points: budget, mid-range and premium. 

He’s picked them on the basis on their performance and usual value for money – but the good news is all three are on sale today, so even better value for money than usual.

The all-new Sony A95K QD-OLED TV

1. Sony XR-A95K

The best TV for image quality you can buy today

Screen size: 55-inch, 65-inch | Resolution: 4K | Display technology: QD-OLED | Smart TV: Google TV | Refresh rate: 120Hz

Stunning pictures and sound

Exceptional build quality

Expensive

Only in two sizes

This 2022 Sony TV could well be the best TV ever, thanks to its exceptional build quality, with some of the most stunning images to ever grace a television screen. 

This is a QD-OLED TV, meaning it makes the most of both OLED panels (great darks and brightness control) alongside Quantum Dot filtering (boosted color and contrast).

Sony’s Acoustic Surface Audio feature quite literally vibrates the screen to emit sound, too – it won’t compete with a dedicated Dolby Atmos soundbar, but it’ll certainly enhance whatever is on the screen. Voice recognition capability will make it easy to control playback from the comfort of the couch as well.

It’s certainly pricey, though you’ll also get premium gaming features like HDMI 2.1, 120Hz frame rate, and VRR –though only on two ports, which is pretty cheap for a premium TV.

LG C2 OLED TV in dim living room environment with fantasy image on screen

2. LG C2

Awesome OLED quality in a huge range of sizes

Screen size: 42-inch, 48-inch, 55-inch, 65-inch, 77-inch, 83-inch | Resolution: 4K | Display technology: OLED | Smart TV: webOS | Refresh rate: 120Hz

Stunning picture quality

Ultra-thin design

Only acceptable audio

Some sizes are brighter than others

The LG C2 is one of the best TVs out there today – its images aren’t quite as strong as the Sony A95K’s, but it’s costs a huge amount less. It features a stunning OLED display with an Alpha a9 Gen. 5 processor, offering incredible images, motion processing, and vibrant colors in every pixel. At this price, you’re getting a truly astonishing level of picture quality, including good motion processing and a 120Hz screen to keep everything clear even when the action gets fast.

The webOS platform is one of the best in the business, too, making it easy to navigate your favourite channels and apps. The sound quality is ample as well, with 40W of volume and a 2.2 channel speaker system – perfectly good for sports, though you may miss some nuance when switching over to watch an action movie on Netflix. It’s got four future-proof HDMI 2.1 ports for next-gen gaming too.

Samsung Q60B in living room

3. Samsung Q60B

An excellent cheap TV

Screen size: 43-inch, 50-inch, 55-inch, 60-inch, 65-inch, 70-inch, 75-inch, 85-inch | Resolution: 4K | Display technology: QLED | Smart TV: Tizen | Refresh rate: 60Hz

Good 4K image quality

Bold QLED colors

Average contrast

Only 60Hz frame rate

After a capable TV deal that doesn’t cost the earth? Check out this mid-range Samsung TV, the Q60B. The QLED screen will offer improved color and contrast over cheaper LCD models, though lacks the more impressive backlights in the screens higher up – this isn’t a match for OLED or Neo QLED when it comes to brightness or cinematic depth.

However, Samsung is a reliable TV brand with a base level of picture quality even at this price range, and the wide mix of screen sizes will give you plenty of flexibility in choosing the right model for your home. Samsung motion processing is good, though getting a TV at this price means a 60Hz screen instead of 120Hz, so motion is a little less fluid and clear. But if you want a big punchy screen, it’s great value.

Hulu Live + TV

Hulu’s streaming TV deal of the year ends tomorrow

Yes, this is technically a Black Friday deal. But it’s Cyber Weekend, and the deal’s still running, and it’s VERY good – so here you are.

You can still buy a 12-month, ads-based Hulu subscription for just $1.99 a month (opens in new tab) – a deal that represents a hefty 75% saving on its usual $7.99 price point. The offer is only available until Monday, November 28, though, so if you’re interested grab it now. 

Here’s what our Entertainment reporter Tom Power has to say about it:

“This year, Hulu is facing competition from other streamers in the Black Friday sales, with HBO Max leading the charge with its own 80% off Black Friday deal. While that sounds incredibly enticing, it’s Hulu’s Black Friday offer that I’ll be buying – and here’s why.

“For starters, Hulu’s back catalog is surprisingly fantastic. There are a number of great shows to check out, covering a wide range of genres so fans of all kinds will find something worth streaming.

“There are plenty of great Hulu movies to discover, too. From Palm Springs and Run, to Prey and Fresh, Hulu runs the gamut of genres to deliver a great package of the best Hulu movies around.

“Away from its original content, a Hulu subscription also provides other benefits. Stumping up the cash gives you the option to try out HBO Max, Warner Bros Discovery’s streaming platform, for free for a week. 

“By signing up to a Hulu subscription, you can select an add-on to grab a seven-day HBO Max free trial. Even with HBO Max’s own Black Friday deal, Hulu’s add-on represents significant value for money as it’s the only way you can try out HBO Max for nothing, and catch up on House of the Dragon and The Batman. Not too shabby, eh?”

Welcome to anyone just joining us

I’m Julia Sagar, Content Director of Ecommerce here at TechRadar, and I’m in the driving seat for the next hour or two. I’m busy scanning the sales for the latest Cyber Monday deals and news, so stay tuned for the best bargains you can buy now (and a heads-up on what to avoid).

Save big on Sennheiser’s five-star August-issue Momentum 4 Wireless

Becky Scarrott, Senior Audio Staff Writer, TechRadar

Missed out on the Sony XM4 steal we listed mere moments ago? It’s OK, lots of us did… But this deal, on the excellent Sennheiser Momentum 4 Wireless, which sees them slashed in price to just $298.72 at Walmart (from $349) (opens in new tab) is the next best thing!

You can see more Cyber Weekend headphones deals live (including this one) in our best Black Friday headphones deals still live roundup. 

But I have to say: this deal, like the Sony one, may not last for long. If you’re thinking of buying a set, don’t wait too long on these… 

Cyber Monday coffee maker deals

Save big on these coffee machines

Axel Metz, Staff Writer, TechRadar

If you’re keen to upgrade your coffee-making equipment in time for the holidays, then you’re in luck: a large chunk of this year’s Cyber Monday coffee maker deals are essentially carbon copies of their Black Friday equivalents. 

In most cases, retailers including Amazon, Walmart and Best Buy have simply replaced the ‘Black Friday’ label with ‘Cyber Monday’ (those cheeky so-and-sos!).

Our pick of the bunch under $100 is the mega-popular Keurig K-Mini, which Amazon is still offering for half price ($50) right now. You’ll have to opt for the dark green model to get the biggest saving – other colors are priced slightly higher – but this is the smartest-looking option, in our humble opinion.

Samsung’s best monitors are getting big price cuts for Cyber Monday

John Loeffler, Computing Editor, TechRadar

Samsung makes some of the best gaming monitors around, and with Black Friday monitor deals still going strong, there’s never been a better time to save big money on some fantastic displays like the 27-inch Samsung Odyssey G5 for just $248.43 at Amazon, a 22% discount, or the 4K, 28-inch Samsung Odyssey G7 for $579.99 at Best Buy, a $220 saving.

If you’re really adventurous, you can even save big on one of the most innovative gaming monitors of the decade, the 55-inch Samsung Odyssey Ark for $2,749.99 at Amazon, a $750 price cut on one of the premiere gaming monitors out there.

MEGA DEAL ALERT!

I’ve just been told by the lovely Becky Scarrott, our Senior Audio Staff Writer, that the excellent Sony WH-1000XM4 headphones have had a huge discount to just $193.75 at Amazon – and they are selling out so fast, there’s only one left in stock! If you want a great pair of headphones, snap this one up!

Of course, when it comes to the Black Friday and Cyber Monday period, TVs are often at the top of many people’s shopping lists. This year has seen some brilliant deals – in fact, I treated myself to an LG OLED TV myself, as I’d been meaning to upgrade for a while.

With OLED sets, you’re getting absolutely stunning image quality, especially when it comes to contrast ratio, and with support for Dolby Vision HDR, as well as Nvidia G-Sync for when I play my PC, I do wonder what took me so long to make the leap.

If you’re thinking of going OLED, then here’s some great deals we’ve found:

Black Friday MacBook Air deal

The M1 MacBook Air remains the best Cyber Monday deal I’ve found

Matt Hanson, Managing Editor, Core Tech, TechRadar

Throughout the weekend (and long before, to be honest), I’ve been keeping an eye on all manner of Cyber Monday deals, especially when it comes to laptops, and by far the best deal I’ve found is for the M1 MacBook Air, which is just $765.11 from Amazon. This is for a refurbished model, but having bought refurbished devices in the past, I heartily recommend it, as they are great ways to save money. From trustworthy retailers, refurbished devices are thoroughly tested to make sure they work perfectly, and they come with a warranty as well.

The M1 MacBook Air remains one of the best laptops you can buy right now, I actually prefer it to the newer M2 MacBook Air, if only because it represents such good value for money – especially with this epic deal.

Save big on the Xbox Series S

Rhys Wood, Hardware Writer, TRG

If you’ve been looking to upgrade to a current-gen console then now’s the time to pick up the Xbox Series S while it’s discounted over Cyber Monday.

The Xbox Series S has fallen to its lowest price at Amazon and is now $239.99 for the holidays.

The Xbox Series S is easy to see as merely a less powerful version of the Xbox Series X. And while that’s technically true, that doesn’t mean the Xbox Series S isn’t without its benefits.

For one, it’s much smaller than the monolithic Series X, meaning it’s much easier to slot into a space-tight home setup. The Xbox Series S is also a very capable console. Support for up to 1440p at 120fps means that compatible games look sharp and run smoothly. All Xbox games play on both consoles, too, so consider pairing it with Xbox Game Pass Ultimate to get access to a library of new and old games.

How are the deals looking this morning?

James Pickard, Deals Editor, TechRadar

Even though there’s a day to go until Cyber Monday is officially here, we’re still inundated with deals on Sunday.

Amazon continues to lead the way following the launch of its Cyber Monday sale immediately after the conclusion of Black Friday. We’ve had a snoop around the site this morning but haven’t spotted anything especially new just yet – but you can be sure there’s more to come from tomorrow.

There have been a few price changes here or there on some products, though. We’ve seen a few extra discounts this morning so it looks like the deals are ramping up again, ready to launch into Cyber Monday strong. All the best ones we’ll share right here over the next few hours.

Out of stock messages are popping up more frequently in other areas, too, though. Once again, it’s the popular and affordable Amazon devices that are most affected by this, with the Echo Show 5 and Echo Dot unavailable at some stores. We’d suggest if there’s an offer you like the look of today you bag it now to avoid missing out.

Oral-B iO Series 9

(Image credit: Future)

The Cyber Monday electric toothbrush deals are here, and there’s loads of good stuff on offer from handsets affordable and expensive. If you’ve not made the switch from a manual brush, now’s a good time to do so, as research (opens in new tab) suggests powered toothbrushes are more effective at reducing instances of plaque and gingivitis than a manual toothbrush. 

There are also deals on packs of replacement brush heads, which can get expensive ordinarily, and waterpik jet flossers (which managing editor Josie Watson was planning to snag on Black Friday).

However, the best deals for our money are on the ludicrous Oral-B iO Series. With multi-directional brush vibration and smart gyroscopes incorporated into the handsets, these toothbrushes encourage you to open your phone so it can show you in real-time, with a heat-map of your mouth, whether you’re doing an effective enough job brushing your teeth. 

The iO Series 9 is discounted heavily to $249.99 at Amazon, and is even bundled with three replacement brush heads which are usually sold separately. If you replace your brush head every three months, that’s a full year of clean teeth. We’ve also linked our favorite Waterpik deal below, so you can have fun firing streams of water between your teeth in the mornings and use less disposable floss.

Garmin watches for pros and beginners

Matt Evans, Fitness & Wellbeing Editor

As TR’s resident active person, I’ve been keeping a close eye on the Cyber Monday Garmin deals and Cyber Monday Fitbit deals as they’ve been happening over the weekend. Many have come and gone, but there are still a few excellent buys waiting for people at either end of their fitness journey.

If you’re just thinking about buying your first fitness watch to help you take running a little more seriously, a Garmin is a great shout, thanks to its accurate multi-band built-in GPS and its ability to tell you information about your distance, speed, heart rate, and more. Where on your route were you slowest? What’s your average stride length? What’s the best five-kilometer, completely circular route to take me to and from my door? A Garmin can help. 

Right now, the excellent entry-level Garmin Forerunner 45 is just $118.99 at Amazon, a better buy than most Fitbits at this price. For more experienced runners and adventurers, we’ve got something for you too: last year’s awesome Garmin Fenix 6X Sapphire with its price cut by a massive $280.

Nespresso products for the holidays

Caffeinating the country, one Nespresso machine at a time

Nespresso machines are taking over households all over the US. They are among the most popular appliances to buy this sale season, and Cyber Monday Nespresso deals continue to pop up. 

Though I’m more of a French press (and Jot coffee, when I’m in a hurry) coffee addict, I’ve used my share of Nespresso coffee makers, and I totally get the appeal. They’re a convenient way of getting your caffeine fix in the morning and chasing away that 2pm slump. 

If you’re thinking of joining the Nespresso revolution or gifting a machine for the holidays, I found the best early Cyber Monday deals below. (Just please be sure to take advantage of that Nespresso recycling program when you get yours.)

Get the Dyson Airwrap dupe

Michelle Rae Uy, Buying Guides Editor

The Dyson Airwrap must be a lot more popular than it looks on paper, seeing as the only proper discount you could get this Black Friday-Cyber Monday season is a 20% deal if you were a past Dyson customer. If you haven’t bought a Dyson product at their online store before, the only “deal” you could get is a “free accessories” one if you pay full price.

And that, we’re sorry to say, isn’t likely going to change this weekend or on Cyber Monday. Not that we’re not still holding on hope. Crazier things have happened.

If you’re just tired of waiting, however, lots of hair-styling consumers are turning to Dyson Airwrap dupes (and lots of fashion and lifestyle magazines are recommending the same). They’re much less expensive – some under $50; they’re just as effective; and best of all, they’re already on sale for Cyber Monday.

You could wait until November 28 for that deal that might never come, or you could take advantage of these Cyber Monday Dyson Airwrap dupe deals now and save yourself the disappointment.

Amazon Blink outdoor camera doorbell

Don’t Blink

Earlier tonight we had our first “ring and run” in ages. Some teenagers scrambled to our front door, knocked, and then dashed off. We missed them, but our video doorbell did not. 

It’s hard to put a price on home security and knowing what’s happening outside the front of your home when you’re not there, or knowing who is standing there and knocking on your door (or running away). People still do silly things at other people’s front doors but now we have a record because of all these video doorbells. 

This Blink Video Doorbell, which has a motion detector and a camera, was on sale for Black Friday and Amazon is letting the good times toll with the $34.99 sale (was $49.99) still in place and now listed as a Cyber Monday Deal.

One nice thing about this model is that it can be wire-free (battery-operated), which makes for super-easy installation. You can hook it up to existing wiring if you want.

Instant Pots still hot

We know a lot of the holiday buying heat now revolves around Air Fryers, but Instant Pots remain an excellent gift-giving choice. They’re easily as versatile as Air Fryers just without all the excitement of oil-free-crisping.

The other thing worth noting is that Black Friday Deals keep on rolling right into Cyber Monday. These two Instant Pot options are not officially listed as Cyber Monday deals on Amazon, but they certainly are Cyber Weekend ones.

There’s the classic 10-in-1 model for just $99.99 and an Instant Pot with, you guessed it, air fryer capabilities for $169.95. They’re both solid deals that might be around through Monday or could evaporate at any minute. You might have to move fast.

Amazon device deals are still live

Amazon always cuts the price of its own devices for Black Friday and Cyber Monday, and this year’s deals are pretty good. 

Both the 3rd and 5th Gen Echo Dots are down to record lows (admittedly the 5th Gen only released fairly recently), ditto for the Fire TV Stick Lite and 4K, and likewise for several Fire tablets, Kindles and Ring doorbells. We’ve included our nine favorites below.

3 of the best air fryer deals

Air fryers were (once again) in great demand over Black Friday, and we’re pretty sure Cyber Monday will see plenty of great discounts.

In fact, there are still lots of deals available on products from the likes of Ninja and Instant. Here are three of our favorites. 

A seriously big discount on a great laptop

No, this one’s not an Amazon deal – but we still wanted to mention it.

Lenovo knows a thing or two about making productivity laptops and we’re big fans of its Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon series. The latest Gen 10 model is a stellar professional laptop for Windows fans – and even better, it’s $1,289 down from $2,879 on Lenovo’s website. 

Bonus: it’s available in a variety of configurations, all heavily discounted, with the biggest reduction on the high-end $4,169 model, which has had a staggering $2,255.43 slashed off the retail price to bring it down to $1,913.57.

Should you buy the Kobo Libra 2 or Amazon Kindle Paperwhite?

Screen size: 7 inches


Storage: 4GB


Battery life: 6 weeks

The Kobo Libra 2 is the best all-round ereader there is. It has far more storage than the Kindle Paperweight, Bluetooth support for audiobooks, and is packed with useful features the Kindle doesn’t have, such as OverDrive support to let you borrow library books. If you’re looking for the most value for money, this is it.

For

  • Asymmetric design
  • 32GB storage
  • Audiobook support

Against

  • Erratic battery charging

Amazon Kindle Paperwhite (2021)

Screen size: 6.8 inches


Storage: 16GB


Battery life: 10 weeks

The Kindle Paperwhite offers a very comfortable reading experience, with a clear display that’s easy to look at. It beats the Kobo Libra 2 on battery life (10 weeks versus six), but it’s more complicated to upload books that haven’t come from the Amazon store and falls short on features in comparison.

For

  • Large and clear display
  • Faster USB-C charging
  • Reading experience

Against

  • Limited to Amazon’s store

Choosing the best ereader isn’t easy. Do you go for the market leader, Amazon’s Kindle, and if so, what’s the best Kindle? Or do you try a different brand, like Kobo (which has also been around a long time, since 2010)? 

Both are at their lowest price ever today in the Amazon Black Friday sale. Both have front lights, both are waterproof and both have a ‘dark mode’. 

However, the Libra 2 is good value with no confusing options, more storage by default and a better ergonomic design. It’s also got a very slightly larger display. we gave it a full five stars in our Kobo Libra 2 review.

The Paperwhite, meanwhile, costs more and lacks page-turn buttons, but it has a glass front and a faster processor. And if you go for the more expensive Paperwhite Signature Edition ($129 down from $189.99 at Amazon) you’ll also get wireless charging and an auto-adjusting display. We gave it 4.5/5 in our review.

For us, the winner is the Kobo Libra 2. Newer models from other brands have arrived since its launch, but it’s a a fantastic all-around champion that still holds strong to its place as our #1 choice of ereader.

Is this Amazon Oculus Quest bundle any good?

Obviously not every Cyber Monday deal is quite as good as it first looks, so we can forgive anyone who looks at this Oculus Quest 2 bundle deal with a degree of cynicism. But in this case, we think it’s a genuinely great offer.

For starters, Meta increased the price of the Quest 2 by $399 just a few months. That was a massive jump from of $100 from its previous price of $299, so a 33% rise. 

A $50 saving over the newly increased price is certainly worth having, but where this deal really earns its corn is in the fact that it also come with two games. So, not only are you getting one of the best VR headsets, but those bundled games take the overall value way up. Overall, it more than makes up for the price rise.

Both games are pretty good, too; Beat Saber takes the rhythm game in a fun and exciting new direction, while Resident Evil 4 VR is a seminal survival horror game.

This Amazon deal definitely isn’t collecting dust

On the subject of home appliances, Amazon’s Black Friday Dyson vacuum deals have also remained active for the weekend, with many now labelled as dedicated Cyber Monday deals. The excellent Dyson Cyclone V10, for instance, is still available for 23% less than its usual retail price (now $538 from $699.99) (opens in new tab)

This one-time best-in-class cordless vacuum is selling fast, mind you – at the time of writing, Amazon only has 20 models left in stock. Go, go, go!

5 cracking Keurig coffee maker deals

Almost all of Amazon’s Black Friday Keurig coffee maker deals have been repackaged as Cyber Monday deals for the weekend, meaning you can still bag best-selling models including the K-Mini, K- Slim, K-Classic, K-Supreme and K-Elite for exceptionally low prices. 

We don’t anticipate seeing any of the below deals improving as we approach Cyber Monday proper, so our advice is to act now if you’re keen to upgrade your coffee-making hardware to one of Keurig’s popular machines.  

Black Friday Braun deal

Get a fresh cut for a cut price

Axel Metz, Staff Writer, TechRadar

Amazon’s excellent Braun Series 9 Pro deal has rolled over from Black Friday into Cyber Monday, meaning you can still pick up the German brand’s best-ever electric shaver for the handsome price of $259 (down from $330) (opens in new tab). That’s 21% less than usual, and just $10 shy of being Amazon’s best-ever price.

I’m in the process of reviewing the Series 9 Pro for TechRadar’s best electric razors and beard trimmers guide, and honestly, my biggest gripe so far concerns its typically astronomical retail price. Black Friday weekend, though, has made that figure much, much more reasonable, meaning the Series 9 Pro is an easier recommendation than ever right now. If you’re keen to upgrade your shaving game in 2022, now is absolutely the time to do so.

These earbuds are a bit rock n roll 

Becky Scarrott, Senior Audio Staff Writer, TechRadar

Wouldn’t life be boring if every ear you saw had an ice-white Apple stem hanging out of it? 

Maybe you want the portable, wire-free music experience but you don’t want to follow the herd. Maybe you prefer a slightly more vintage aesthetic – albeit one benefitting from all of the latest wireless Bluetooth technology. 

We get it. Marshall (or, to give the company its full moniker, Marshall Amplification) does too, for it is a gloriously rock-steady UK audio outfit founded in 1962 by Jim Marshall. 

Every Marshall product somehow looks like a guitar amp, even when it’s a set of tiny earbuds. And that is what we have here, as well as a stunning pair of wireless on-ears, both discounted for Black Friday and both as cheap as we’ve ever seen them. 

More cheap deals – under $25

So far we’ve mostly rounded up pricey buys on tech, but it’s well worth checking out Amazon’s excellent ‘under $25’ Cyber Monday section if you’re still on the hunt for some gifts this holiday season.

Should you buy the MacBook Air M1 (2020) – or the newer M2 (2022)?

Matt Hanson, Managing Editor, Core Tech, TechRadar 

Apple MacBook Air (M2, 2022)

The MacBook Air (M2, 2022) has a fantastic design, bigger screen and incredibly long battery life, but also a much higher price tag. Think of it more as a replacement for the 13-inch MacBook Pro, and it starts to make a lot more sense. Read more: MacBook Air (M2, 2022) review

For

  • Great new design
  • Upgraded performance
  • Long battery life
  • Larger, brighter screen

Against

  • Much more expensive

Apple MacBook Air (M1, 2020)

The MacBook Air (M1, 2020) is phenomenal value for money, which makes it incredibly tempting. It’s no slouch in the performance stakes, although if you’re looking to do heavy graphics editing and multitasking go for the M2. Read more: MacBook Air (M2, 2020) review

For

  • Excellent value for money
  • Great all-around performer
  • Good battery life
  • Silent in use

The 13-inch MacBook Air (M1, 2020) has returned to its lowest-ever price. There’s no question that it’s incredible value for money, but it’s no longer the newest model. So: should you buy the newer and more powerful MacBook Air (M2, 2022), or the better-value and still excellent MacBook Air (M1, 2020)?

It’s a tricky choice, which is a testament to just how good the older laptop is.

The MacBook Air (M2, 2022) brings some big changes, both inside, with the new M2 chip, and on the outside, with a radical redesign. If you want a modern experience and upgraded performance, it’s the way to go. The new design is great, it’s more portable, and the screen is a big step up. The M2 could also prove to be a big upgrade.

However, the MacBook Air (M1, 2020) is a lot cheaper, which makes it incredibly tempting. If you don’t want to spend a fortune on a laptop, choose this one, as it offers excellent value for money, while also being a great all-around performer. And that’s true even more so today, now that the MacBook Air M1 is down to its lowest price ever at Amazon.

Is the cheapest TV on Amazon worth buying?

Amazon’s Cyber Monday TV deals seem to get cheaper and cheaper every year, so much so that, incredibly, you can now buy a smart display for under $100. It’s true that at this price you tend to see the real budget models or own-brand displays, but we’re always surprised by how cheap the retailer offers them over Cyber Monday.

Take this one, for example:

We haven’t reviewed it here at TechRadar, but we can give you our honest opinion, based on the fact that we review dozens of TVs every year.

So, yeah, it’s 24 inches, which is tiny in comparison to most common TV sizes today (it’s more like a computer monitor). That said, it has got some surprisingly good features for the money. 

The biggest positive of this display is that it has Amazon Fire TV built right in, so you don’t have to pair it up with a Fire TV Stick or equivalent to get full access to all the best streaming services or compatibility with Echo devices. It’ll basically work right out of the box and get you streaming Amazon Video or Netflix in no time – and it’s small enough to fit on nearly any desk or tabletop. 

What we don’t like is the 720p resolution. For a display in 2022 – even one that’s 24 inches – that’s lacklustre. The 32-inch version for $99 features this same 720p resolution, too, which will look even worse on a slightly bigger screen size. 

Based on that, if you can afford it, we’d recommend opting for a slightly bigger display like this one.

This 43-inch Amazon-branded display has the same handy Fire-TV smart features as the cheapo Insignia but has a much, much improved 4K resolution. It also supports HDR 10, HLG, and Dolby Digital Plus for an improved picture quality overall.

5 popular deals at Amazon yesterday – that you can still get now

Following on from my previous post – Amazon’s Cyber Monday deals are…very similar to its Black Friday deals. That’s to be expected though: most retailers will be rolling their existing deals into their Cyber weekend sales over the next few days.

These five deals are all ones we either first noticed yesterday or during the week before. But they’re all great value, so they’re definitely worth checking out.

Today’s sales – where do they stand?

Alex Whitelock, deals editor, TechRadar

We’re in the awkward period right now between Black Friday and Cyber Monday, with some retailers – notably Amazon – having already switched their headline banners over to the latter sale. Basically, the vast majority of deals that are available today are holdouts from the earlier sale, which is generally what we expect these days.

Over the past few years, we’ve seen these big seasonal one-day sales transform into a kind of ‘deals season’, so generally speaking, there are a lot of similar promotions going on. That’s not to say the deals are bad, however, most of the listings we’ve found are still at their lowest prices all year – or at least matching their lowest prices. 

Take the MacBook Air M1 we just posted below as an example, which is currently $799 at Amazon. This model is generally found at prices ranging from $899 to $929 at Amazon, and it’s been on sale for $799 a couple of times in the last month. Those holding out for a ‘record-breaking’ price may be disappointed with this one but it’s still a very strong deal overall.

Nintendo Switch OLED black Friday savings

Super-low Nintendo Switch OLED bundle alert – but not at Amazon

Julian Benson, Editor in Chief, TechRadar Gaming

This one isn’t in the Amazon Cyber Monday sale, but we think it’s too good to miss…

If you have a Nintendo Switch already and know you mostly play in handheld mode, or you think that’s how you’ll use it if you buy one, the Nintendo Switch OLED is an upgrade that’s well worth considering. Its larger, brighter screen is a marked improvement over the original Nintendo Switch and Nintendo Switch Lite. 

The console itself is going for the historic low price of $349 at Amazon, but this bundle deal at Dell is excellent value if you’re looking to set yourself up with some games and accessories. For $399.99 you can get the console, a third-party Switchplate controller and a copy of Splatoon 3 – one of the best first-party games on the Nintendo Switch.

This weekend is a great time to buy a MacBook

Allisa James, Computing Staff Writer, TechRadar

If you’re in the market for a MacBook Air, you’re in luck: the 13-inch M1 model from 2022 plummeted in price to just $799 a few days ago and it’s still looking like this amazing $200 deal is sticking around for Cyber Monday. For the record, this is the lowest price yet on this fantastic ultrabook.

Even though the 2020 model has been superseded by the more powerful (and more expensive) new MacBook Air M2 (2022), it still sits at number three in our best laptops guide. 

We gave it 4.5/5 stars in our Apple MacBook Air (M1, 2020) review: its performance is incredible thanks to the powerful M1 chip, and the battery life is excellent. It’s easily the best value laptop money can buy right now, and a great choice for work or school. It’s also great for watching movies.

Get Sony’s five-star earbuds for the lowest price ever

The excellent Sony WF-1000XM4 true wireless earbuds are on sale at Amazon as part of the retailer’s early Cyber Monday sale – for the lowest price we’ve ever seen.

We awarded these top-tier, class-A Sony buds the full five stars in our Sony WF-1000XM4 review. They deliver stunning sound quality, strong active noise cancellation and a solid eight hours of battery life. 

If you’re looking for a deal on some of the best noise-cancelling earbuds ahead of Cyber Monday, then we don’t expect this price to be beaten on the day itself. Snatch them up while you can.

Creative T100 2.0 desktop speakers now available for 55% off on Amazon

Creative T100 2.0 desktop speakers (Source: Creative Labs)

Introduced in 2019 as the successor of the T20 and T40 series, the Creative T100 desktop speakers come with a peak power of 80 W and multiple connectivity options, including Bluetooth 5.0, 3.5 mm AUX, and optical. The ongoing 55% discount offered by Amazon pushes the list price of US$177.85 down to a very attractive US$79.99.

For most computer users, desktop space is quite precious, so using a compact set of speakers is one of their basic needs. In addition to being compact, the minimalistic Creative T100 2.0 speakers come with a wide range of connectivity options and excellent audio quality. Although some potential users might consider the Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity a weak point, the ongoing 55% off Amazon deal (US$79.99, down from US$177.85) turns the Creative T100 into a quite tempting product.

Next to the Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity mentioned above, the Creative T100 also comes with optical and 3.5 mm AUX inputs, as well as the ability to play hi-res lossless tracks from USB flash drives. The list of audio formats supported includes FLAC, WAV, and MP3. Unfortunately, the size of the USB devices that can be used with the Creative T100 in optimal devices must be up to 32 GB, with a FAT32 file system.

In charge of the sound are a set of 2.75-inch full-range drivers with improved BasXPort technology and a digital amplifier. Thanks to the latter, the 40 W RMS can be pushed up to a peak of 80 W. In addition to the speakers, the remote package also includes an IR remote and a 3.5 mm stereo to stereo cable.

The Creative T100 2.0 desktop speakers hold a global customer rating of 4.5/5 on Amazon, after 71% perfect scores and 15% 4/5 ratings. The breakdown by feature includes a 4.4 sound quality score, followed by 4.3 for volume control and value for money, 4.2 for remote control and bass quality, and 3.7/5 for the Bluetooth connectivity part.

Last, but not the least, it should be noted that Creative Labs US has this product listed with a regular price of just US$99.99, which is currently down to US$79.99 as well.
