Google Chromecast with Google TV for $ 40 ($ 50) on the target, Best Buy

The latest Google Chromecast is our favorite streaming device under $ 50. It’s quick to load apps, it’s compatible with Dolby Vision HDR and Dolby Atmos, and it has a neatly organized interface that does an excellent job of offering really useful suggestions for seeing new things. This is the lowest price we’ve seen for the 4K streamer outright. (However, if you are willing to subscribe to Sling TV, you may grab the device for $ 5 less through a promotion there.)

If you’ve gotten used to using a streamer from Roku or Amazon, keep in mind that many of those devices are also for sale. the new Fire TV Stick 4K Max it is up to $ 35, while the recently released Roku Streaming Stick 4K it is available for $ 29. Both offers match the lowest prices we’ve tracked, but keep in mind that the latter may loose access to an official YouTube app in the next few weeks.

Amazon Kindle Paperwhite for $ 105 ($ 140) on Amazon

We gave Amazon’s newest Kindle Paperwhite a glowing review last month. It updates our long-held pick for the best e-book reader for most people with a bigger screen, USB-C port, better front light, and improvements in battery life and performance. This offer is the first big discount we’ve seen for the device. It also comes with four months of Amazon’s Kindle Unlimited e-book service, but keep in mind that this subscription will be set to auto-renew by default.

Apple AirPods Pro for $ 170 ($ 205) on Amazon, Walmart

As we notice in Our roundup of the best Black Friday noise-canceling headphone deals, the AirPods Pro remain a quality option for iPhone users looking for a pair of true wireless noise-canceling headphones. The five-hour battery life is average and its built-in mic isn’t ideal for calls, but they do well to block out outside noise, with well-balanced sound and tons of user-experience amenities if you’re using other Apple devices. While the headphones dropped as low as $ 159 earlier in the week (and they can go back there again), this bargain price is still $ 20-30 lower than their usual online rate.

If you are looking for a different set of Apple headphones, the second and 3rd generation AirPods they are also for sale for $ 100 other $ 150, respectively. The former is $ 10 off the best price we’ve tracked, while the latter is a new low.

Sony WH-1000XM4 for $ 248 ($330) on Amazon, objective, Best Buy

For a pair of over-the-ear noise cancellers, we think Sony’s WH-1000XM4 is the best choice for most people as it offers a wonderful mix of comfort, powerful ANC, useful functions and customizable sound. This deal has been active for much of the past month, but it matches the best price we’ve tracked.

Xbox Game Pass Ultimate includes Xbox Live Gold, which enables online play for many Xbox games and access to a growing library of games that really pay off.

While this is not the absolute lowest price we have seen in a year of service, it is still a good discount for those who need to increase their membership again.

Catan is a strategic board game that tasks up to four players with collecting and exchanging resources to create roads, settlements, and cities, earning points along the way.

Amazon Fire HD 10 for $ 75 ($ 140) on Amazon, objective, Best Buy

Unsurprisingly, Amazon has discounted its all fire tablet lineup for Black Friday. While the 8-inch Fire HD 8 has a good value in its current sale price of $ 45, the new Fire HD 10 A larger screen and slightly faster performance make it a better choice for casual web browsing and video streaming. This offer matches the lowest price we have recorded.

Apple MacBook Air (2020) for $ 850 ($ 925) on Amazon, Best Buy

A renewed model can arrive next year, but for those who need a laptop for general use cases today, the The 2020 MacBook Air remains Fast, durable and well built. This entry-level configuration comes with 8GB of RAM and a 256GB SSD, so it’s not for professionals, but we’ve only seen it drop below this price a couple of times in the past.
