It's finally here: the final act of this nearly weeklong celebration of savings. While many Cyber Monday deals went live early (or are continuations of deals that started before Black Friday), many brands and retailers truly saved their best for last.
FYI: These prices and deals were accurate at the time of posting, and we'll strive to remove deals as they sell out, but be sure to double check prices before clicking "checkout."
Sonos Cyber Monday
Update: The Black Friday deals below are still available, but now, you can get a Sonos One for an all-time low $149, the Sonos One SL (which lacks a built-in microphone) for $129, or the high fidelity Sonos Five for $399. While the earlier deals like the Beam and Move are more specialty products, these deals are the basic building blocks of any multi-room Sonos system.
Sonos is the undisputed leader in seamless, high-fidelity, multi-room audio, but its speakers almost never go on sale. All the more reason to shop the brand's Cyber Monday savings, which includes a few deals that we've never seen before.
The highlight for most people will be the Sonos Beam sound bar for $299, down from $399. In addition to working as an extra Sonos speaker for your music, audiobooks, and podcasts, it's also an excellent TV sound bar that can pair with additional Sonos speakers to create a truly wireless surround sound system.
Another notable deal is the relatively new Sonos Move ($299 from $399), the first Sonos speaker capable of running off a battery. It should sound just as good as the ubiquitous Sonos One, but you can easily take it with you to the pool, to a campsite, or to a friend's house.
For the rest of the deals, including discounted bundles, head over to Sonos's site here.
REI Cyber Week
REI famously opts out of Black Friday. Or rather, they #OptOutside. But that prohibition on savings doesn't extend to Cyber Monday.
The brand's Cyber Week sale is one of the outdoor retailer's biggest sales of the year, with big savings available on all of your favorite brands, plus rare discounts on REI's outdoor adventures and trips. You can browse the whole sale here, but here are a few of our favorite places to start:
Extra 20% Off REI Adventures In 2021: Book a guided trip through one of America's National Parks for any date in 2021, and you'll get an extra 20% off. Plus, if you're an REI member (just $20 for a lifetime), you stand to save hundreds more.
Extra 20% Off REI Day Trips and Classes: The same deal as above, but for smaller outdoor experiences.
Extra 25% Off One Item at REI Garage: Before you shop on REI proper, you should see if what you're shopping for is available in REI's clearance section. In addition to the listed discount (which is usually quite significant), you'll save an extra 25% for Cyber Week with promo code EXTRA25.
Hiking Sock Sale: Who ever said socks were a lame Christmas gift? This is a great opportunity to save on high end merino wool socks from Smartwool, Farm to Feet, and more.
Base Layer Sale: Stay warm and toasty all winter with long johns and undershirts made from merino wool, from silk, and from other materials that you'll actually want touching your skin for the next several months. I'm a particularly big fan of Smartwool's base layers, even though they're better known for their socks.
Snow Apparel: The outerwear section of the sale features wares from Columbia, Mountain Hardwear, and REI's own line. But the most intriguing deals aren't actually snow jackets, but rather Arc'teryx's legendary Beta rain gear and shells. The jackets and pants are certainly an investment, but they'll keep you dry for years to come.
NEMO Stargaze Camping Recliner: Why invest in a camping chair when you can save on a camping recliner? The NEMO Stargazer packs down small, and uses an ingenious system of elastic straps to seamlessly lean back when you want to look at the stars.
Blundstone Boots: Australia-based Blundstone has been perfecting its durable, practical work boots for 150 years, and nine different styles of its iconic chelsea boots are on sale as part of REI's Cyber Week, including both leather and waterproof options.
Nixplay Digital Photo Frame
A digital photo frame could make for a great holiday gift, and Nixplay's frames have essentially cornered the market. Today only, you can grab the 10" Nixplay smart frame with wood accents for an all-time low $119, or the sharper 2K version (albeit with a plastic frame) for an all-time low $180.
Both frames feature HD screens and internet connections, meaning anyone (with permission) can easily add photos to the frame with the Nixplay app or via email. It's a great way to relive your favorite travel photos, or to help brighten a friend or family member's day by surprising them with an old, cherised snapshot.
Nixplay 10" Wood Smart Photo Frame | $119 | Normally $170-$190
Nixplay 2K 9.7" Smart Photo Frame | $180 | Normally $220-$280
Finding a frame for your standard 4x6 photos is easy enough, but what about for diplomas, medals, antique plates, your grandma's old recipe cards, autographed sports jerseys, and other oddly shaped items? That's where Framebridge comes in. You just send them whatever you want to frame, and either select a curated frame option, or work with a designer to make your item look as great as possible on your wall.
Today only, you can use promo code BF20 at checkout to save 20% on your order. You can pay now, and send in your stuff later this week.
20% Off Custom Framing | Promo code BF20
If you're going to learn a new skill, why not learn from the best? Masterclass offers over 90 video courses from household names in fields ranging from fashion to business to photography, and everything in between. We're talking cooking classes from Gordon Ramsay. Tennis lessons from Serena Williams. Chess advice from Garry Kasparov. Architecture and design fundamentals from Frank Gehry.
Each video course is broken up into distinct lessons that you can watch on any device, and also includes a PDF workbook for following along. And with new classes added every month, you'll never run out of things to learn.
For a limited time for Black Friday, if you sign up for a year-long membership, you'll get a second membership for free that you can share with whoever you'd like. Needless to say, that second membership would make a great holiday gift. Or, you could just split the membership cost with a friend. This is the first deal Masterclass has offered the general public since May, so you won't want to miss your chance to enroll.
Ooni Pizza Ovens
The biggest difference between pizza you make at home and pizza you get from a proper pizzeria isn't the quality of the ingredients, or even necessarily the skill of the chef. It's all about temperature. Your home oven probably doesn't get hotter than 450 or 500 degrees, but proper pizza ovens like these from Ooni can reach temperatures in excess of 900 degrees.
Those kinds of extreme temperatures are the key to getting a crispy, satisfying crust before your ingredients start to burn, and while a good pizza steel can help, there's no true substitute for a really hot oven.
Ooni makes pizza ovens that work with gas, with wood pellets, and with charcoal, and they're all 20% off right now for Cyber Monday. Just be sure to invite us over for your first pizza night.
Update: This offer is still available, but now with an extra $15 off with promo code CYBER15
While it's not quite as timely as the company's recent free turkey promotion, Butcher Box's latest sign-up offer is perfect for anyone that misses visiting their favorite steakhouse. Just sign up for a new account, and your first box will include four top sirlions and two New York strip steaks for free, in addition to whatever else you ordered.
Just sign up for a new account, pick your desired assortment of beef, pork, chicken, and more, and they'll throw in the bonus steaks automatically, in addition to whatever would have been in your box anyway. Butcher Box's cows are grass-fed and grass-finished, without antibiotics or hormones, and the rest of the company's meats are sourced with the same humane standards in mind.
Six Free Steaks With First Delivery | Butcher Box
Apple's AirPods are exceptional headphones for working out, listening to podcasts while you're walking the dog, or just experiencing better audio during your Zoom calls, and $110 is one of the best prices we've ever seen on the entry-level model. For $30 more, you can also get them with a wireless charging case.
These aren't the AirPods Pros with active noise cancelation, but with today's deal, they cost nearly $100 less, and still sound great. And with the included, pocket-friendly charging case, they're easy to take on the go for up to 24 hours of listening between charges.
The headphones you packed for your trip are wireless. The seatback screen on the plane, and the TV in the hotel gym both require a wire. See the problem?
That's why we love Twelve South's AirFly Pro, an ingenious little device that plugs in anywhere you can use wired headphones, and then broadcasts the audio over Bluetooth to any pair of wireless headphones. Its built-in battery runs for up to 16 hours on a charge--long enough to get you over the Pacific--and it's easy to keep powered up with any USB-C charger too.
The AirFly Pro is down to $44 right now at Amazon, one of the best prices ever listed. Compared to the original AirFly (which is also on sale for $25), it has better battery life, can connect to two pairs of headphones at once rather than just one, and can also act as a Bluetooth receiver (say, to add Bluetooth streaming to an older car stereo).
Twelve South AirFly Pro | $44 | Normally $47-$55
Alaska Air Flights
Travel is slowly starting to return here in the U.S., and if you're ready to start thinking about your next trip, the latest sale from Alaska Airlines (via Travelzoo) is a great opportunity to explore the country for less.
One-way prices on many routes start at just $29 on select dates through May, with seemingly plenty of availability. To see the deals from your local airport, just select it from the dropdown menu on the deal page, and you'll see all of the destinations included in the sale.
These fares are only available until Tuesday (12/1), and all fall under Alaska Air's flexible travel waiver. If you decide not to fly and cancel your ticket, the full cost of your fare will be deposited into your My Account wallet, and will be valid for flights up to a year after your original travel date. Safe travels!
Echo Show 5
Amazon's Echo Show 5 is like an Echo smart speaker with a screen, and you can get it for $50 for Cyber Monday with an included Blink Mini Wi-Fi security camera. That's only $5 more than the lowest price ever on the Echo Show 5 by itself.
Better yet, the two gadgets will work together seamlessly. Just say "Alexa, show me the living room camera" (or wherever you set up your camera), and the display will instantly show you a live view, and even let you talk back and forth through the camera.
Amazon Echo Show 5 + Blink Mini | $50 | Normally $130
Society6's mission is to pair designs from independent artists with useful home products and decor, and you can take advantage of the site's Cyber Week sale, with 50% off wall art, 40% off home decor, and 30% off everything else.
All of the eligible products are broken down by category here, but if you see a design that you like, there's a good chance that it can be printed on-demand onto tons of other products in Society6's catalog. If you're overwhelmed by the options, we're particularly partial to the site's collection of vintage-inspired travel posters, which can be printed out in multiple different sizes.
Pop Chart Posters
Pop Chart's posters aren't like the posters you hung up in your college dorm room; they're thoughtfully designed distillations of information that marry art with science, geography, and various esoteric interests. For example, this incredble map of Europe's soccer clubs (even the small ones), an illustrated history of space travel vehicles, or even scratch-off posters to keep track of the national parks you've visited, or the films you've watched.
As part of Huckberry's Cyber Monday savings, several of the brand's most popular charts are 30% off right now, and they'd all make great gifts.
57Hours connects outdoor adventurers with certified and vetted local guides that can teach you to snowkite, surf, rock climb, and more. If you want to give the daredevil in your life a great gift, you can use promo code ADD57 to add an extra $57 to any gift card good for future excursions.
Note: The code is supposed to add $57 to a gift card, but when I tested the code, it actually took $50 off my $50 gift card, essentially letting me get one for free. This is probably a mistake, and will likely be fixed, but it's worth noting.
Add $57 To Any Gift Card | 57Hours | Promo code ADD57
For several years now, Anker's Eufy home brand has been making the best robotic vacuums for most people, and their newest model is one of the smartest RoboVacs yet. While most inexpensive robotic vacuums ping-pong around your house in a random pattern, the RoboVac G30 is packed with sensors to create a dynamic map of your floorplan, ensuring it cleans every nook and cranny, and finds its way back to the charger more reliably.
In terms of vacuuming performance, its 2000pA suction is up there with the most powerful RoboVacs Anker has turned out so far, and is suitable for both hard floors and medium pile carpets. Anker also claims that the new brushless motors only produce 56 decibels of noise, which isn't much louder than a refrigerator.
Today's $230 deal matches the discount that was available for early preorders, but otherwise, it's a whopping $120 less than usual.
Eufy RoboVac G30 | $230 | Normally $350
Marriott Gift Cards
Knock on wood, but it seems like travel may return to some form of normalcy in 2021, and you can save on your future trips with Marriott's Cyber Monday gift card deal. From now through Tuesday, when you buy an eGift card from Marriott, you'll get 15% off at checkout. Ostensibly, these are meant to be given as gifts, but we won't tell anyone if you send yours to yourself.
Orders are limited to $5,000 per person, per day.
15% Off Gift Cards | Marriott
Astorflex's leather shoes have been hand-made by the same family in Northern Italy for six generations, and the brand prides itself on using eco-friendly European leather while still keeping its wares affordable.
All of the brand's shoes are solid deals at their regular prices, but right now, you can save up to 30% almost all of the brand's styles at Huckberry. That includes the winter-ready boots that made the brand famous like the Bitflex chelsea boot and the Greenflex chukka, as well as more summer-friendly slip-on styles like the Wakeflex.
Travelers will want to take an extra-close look at the Patnoflex Travel slip-ons, which eschew the typical interior lining in favor of a lighter, more flexible construction that'll be easy to pack into a suitcase.
House plants have been one of the undisputed winners of 2020, but if you still aren't happy with the amount of green in your home, The Sill is offering up to 50% off a variety of ferns, succulents, and more. I, for one, plan to pick up this air plant bundle for $25.
Up to 50% Off Select House Plants | The Sill
At some point in your life, you drink enough seltzer that flat water no longer satiates your thirst. Once you reach that inflection point, your only chance of survival is to throw up your hands and buy a SodaStream, several of which are on sale for Cyber Monday.
Each CO2 canister (two of which are included with the bundle) can carbonate 60L of water (about 169 cans worth), and can be replaced at any Target or Bed Bath & Beyond for just $15, though they've been somewhat hard to come by lately.
Best of all, you can flavor every bottle with lemon juice, SodaStream syrup, or nothing at all. You no longer have to be in the thrall of big seltz; the level of carbonation and amount of flavoring is entirely up to you.
SodaStream Cyber Monday Deals | $50-$118
Why pack a bulky international power adapter when you can charge everything you need with this universal phone and laptop charger from Anker? It ships with international plug adapters that you can swap onto the charger, and features two USB ports for small devices, plus a 45W USB-C port that can power a laptop.
Pro tip: even if you aren't traveling internationally, you can use those international plugs with the universal AC outlets on domestic flights, which are usually much less wobbly than the US outlets.
Anker PowerPort III 3-Port International Travel Charger | $33 | Normally $50
Anker PowerPort Nano
The charger that Apple includes with most iPhones outputs 5 watts of power. This one from Anker is basically the same size, and outputs 20 watts. That means it can charge your iPhone from 0% to 50% in just 30 minutes, or could even charge a Nintendo Switch or small laptop in a pinch. Today only for Cyber Monday, you can get two of the chargers for an all-time low $24.
2-Pack Anker PowerPort Nano 20W Chargers | $24 | Normally $31
Learning a new language is one of the most enriching ways you could spend this time at home. Not only can it help you professionally and make future international travel all the more rewarding, but it's a surefire way to embrace and understand other cultures, even when you can't experience them firsthand.
Babbel’s online language learning app can teach you over a dozen world languages through lessons designed by over 100 professional linguists. If you still remember the rote memorization and vocabulary dumps from your grade school language classes, Babbel is different; it teaches languages the way they’re learned best, with real life scenarios, and simulated conversations that mimic text messaging threads. And when you want to double check your pronunciation and speaking ability, they offer speech recognition lessons as well.
Everyone has different motivations for learning a language, and Babbel tunes its lessons to help you where you need it most, whether you’re planning a future trip to a foreign country, need to learn a new language to get ahead in your career, or just want to learn about a new culture while we’re all grounded. But no matter what goal you’re working toward, you’ll be able to fit it into your schedule with lessons that can be completed in under 15 minutes, on any phone or tablet.
Right now at StackSocial, you can get lifetime access to Babbel language learning software for $199, or less than you'd normally pay for three years at the usual $83/year rate.
Babbel Lifetime Membership | $199
Instant Pot Max
Most of Instant Pot's pressure cookers perform exactly the same, and differentiate from each other with UI tweaks and bonus features like Wi-Fi.
But the newer Instant Pot Max actually promises a big leap forward in cooking performance, and it's down to its lowest price ever today. So what's new? The big difference is the pot's maximum pressure of 15 PSI, up from 13 on the previous models. That might not seem like a huge difference, but it's enough to allow to you use the Instant Pot for canning and preserving, which used to be the sole domain of stovetop pressure cookers.
There's also a new sous-vide mode which makes it easy to cook meats and vegetables to a precise temperature throughout (for example, a perfect, 130 degree medium rare steak) without the use of a separate sous-vide circulator.
Of course, it'll still be good for normal pressure cooking applications (think slow cooker-type recipes, but in a matter of minutes instead of hours), and it's a great rice cooker too. Basically, all your friends who've been telling you to buy an Instant Pot for years were right, but now, you can one-up them by getting the Cadillac model.
Instant Pot Max | $80 | Normally $110-$150
Native Union Key Cable
All the portable battery packs and travel chargers in the world won't save you if you don't have a cable for your phone. Native Union's Key Cables ensure that you'll always have a tiny smartphone charging cable attached to your keys, and the rarely discounted keychains are on sale now for Cyber Monday, if you're a Prime member.
Just be sure to get the right one for your phone:
- Native Union Key Cable USB-C to USB-A | $12 | Normally $25 | Prime members only. Smaller discounts available on other colors
- Native Union Key Cable USB-A to Lightning (iPhone charging) | $21 | Normally $30 | Prime members only
- Native Union Key Cable USB-C to Lightning (iPhone high-speed charging) | $24 | Normally $35 | Prime members only
EyeBuyDirect is one of the most affordable places to buy prescription glasses online, and if you buy one set of frames right now, you can get a second for free with promo code CYBERSAVE. You'll also get 30% off the first set of frames with the same code, as a treat.
You can apply the code to two separate styles of frames (it'll apply to the cheaper of the two), but note that it only applies to the frames themselves, not any lens upgrades like transitions or blue light blockers.
Buy One, Get One Free Glasses + 30% Off | EyeBuyDirect | Promo code CYBERSAVE
In the course of like, a year, percussive massage guns went from niche curiosities to essential workout recovery devices. Theragun's massage guns are some of the most popular out there, and the entire lineup is on sale for up to $150 off for Cyber Monday, including the travel-friendly Theragun Mini.
ExOfficio makes fast-drying, anti-microbial clothing that's great for travelers, and it's all 30% off right now for Cyber Monday.
The brand is most famous for its Give-N-Go underwear, which was recently upgraded to "Underwear 2.0," featuring anti-microbial fabric that resists odors while wicking even more sweat and drying even more quickly. It's underwear that you could wear for multiple days if you needed to, or that you could easily wash in a sink and dry out overnight, making it perfect for travel.
Much of the same moisture-wicking expertise is present in the rest of the brand's clothing as well. They even make a line of shirts that can repel mosquitoes for up to 70 wash cycles, and will still look and feel great for far longer, so any traveler would be well served by taking advantage of the sale.
30% Off Sitewide | ExOfficio
Cosori Air Fryer
Pedants will tell you that there's no such thing as air frying; it's just convection baking. And while yes, that's technically true, that doesn't mean that a counterop convection oven that heats up incredibly quickly and achieves crispy results isn't incredibly useful.
Cosori's Air Fryer Max is one of the most popular options out there, and at $86 for Cyber Monday, it's down to one of its lowest prices ever.
Cosori Air Fryer Max XL | $86 | Normally $100-$120
The easiest cooking methods aren't usually associated with the best results, but with sous-vide, you get the best of both worlds. The cooking method, which involves circulating precisely heated water around vacuum-sealed food, is almost impossible to screw up, and yet is the method of choice for many high-end restaurants and steakhouses around the world.
If you're ready to experience the most perfectly cooked steaks, the juiciest chicken, and the most delicious vegetables you've ever made at home, Breville's Wi-FI connected Joule sous-vide circulator (which we recommend as a gift for budding international chefs), is down to $150, from the usual $200. Just stick it in a pasta pot usings its magnetic base, add water, and boom: you've got yourself a sous-vide cooker.
Breville Joule Sous-Vide Circulator | $150 | Normally $200
Direct-to-consumer activewear brand Outdoor Voices specializes in high-performing athleisure that performs great while working out, is insanely comfortable for lounging, and looks presentable enough to wear out of the house. If you need somewhere to start, check out the insanely soft CloudKnit line of shirts, sweatpants, and hoodies, all of which are included in the brand's Cyber Monday sale. And don't miss perhaps its most famous style, the Exercise Dress, on sale for $90 from the usual $100.
Outdoorsy is like Airbnb for RVs, Airstreams, and camper vans, which is basically the perfect business for 2020. If you book your next socially distant road trip before December 2 and use promo code TravelTuesday at checkout, you'll get 10% off your booking. Drive safe!
10% Off RV and Camper Bookings | Outdoorsy | Promo code TravelTuesday
2020 has been the year of the at-home workout, and while many of us have invested in smart stationary bikes and treadmills, a simple slide board can work nearly every major muscle group while taking up hardly any space.
The lateral exercises you do on a slide board make heavy use of the stabilizer muscles that most traditional exercises don't touch, and will leave you with the same burn in your legs and glutes you might feel after going ice skating.
Brrrn started out as a New York based fitness studio, but now sells its sturdy, slippery board direct to consumers for use at home. Just put on the included booties (or mittens, if you're doing an upper body workout), fire up a workout from Brrrn's video library (free through January 15) or another source, and get sliding. In our experience, the board is remarkably frictionless, and feels like gliding across a freshly treated sheet of ice, but its padded wooden bumpers on either end never leave you worried about falling over.
But perhaps best of all, when you're done, the board will easily slide under basically any sofa or bed. Try doing that with your rowing machine. Just use promo code TURKEY15 to save 15% on either the 5' or adustable 5'-6' board, plus a free year of video classes.
15% Off + 1 Year of Classes | Brrrn | Promo code TURKEY15
Enso's silicone rings are safer and more comfortable to wear than metal rings while you're working with your hands, and as we've covered over on The Discoverer, they're also perfect for travelers. Not only are they less likely to injure your fingers while you're out and about; you'd also be less upset to lose one to theft or while swimming. They're not going to replace your metal rings; but they can act as a stand-in when necessary.
If you want to try one out yourself, you can get 30% off all of Enso's silicone ring styles for Black Friday, including engraving. That includes Enso's popular Elements series, which incorporates trace amounts of actual precious metals to give the rings a realistic sheen.
30% Off Sitewide | Enso Rings
Le Creuset Cookware
Le Creuset's kind of famous for its brightly colored cast iron cookware, so it makes sense that they don't celebrate Black Friday...they celebrate colorful Friday.
Several dutch ovens, skillets, and even tagine dishes are included in the sale, and if you spend $200 or more, you can use promo code GIFT at checkout to get a free Christmas tree plate.
OXO Cold Brew Coffee Makers
Most people associate cold brew coffee with the summer, but cold brew is just a smoother, more caffeinated version of the coffee you already love, and you can easily drink it hot all year 'round.
OXO Compact Cold Brew Coffee Maker | $24 | Normally $30
OXO Cold Brew Coffee Maker | $40 | Normally $50
If you're heading into a situation that requires you to wear a face mask for hours on end, Cabeau's new mask tape can make it far more comfortable on your ears and face, while keeping your glasses fog free. Get a roll for $11, down from the usual $15 (also available at Amazon).
Huckberry Cyber Monday
The curation experts at Huckberry have put together an impressive Cyber Monday sale with hundreds of deals on high-end outerwear, clever home goods, durable shoes, and a lot more. The whole sale is worth browsing, if only for gift ideas, but here are a few of our favorites:
- Whiskey Peaks Glasses and Decanters For 20% Off | Feature famous mountains on the bottom of the glasses
- Wear A Map National Park Neck Gaiters | $11 | Normally $15
- KeySmart Pro w/ Tile Smart Location | $38 | Normally $50

- Wellen Double Cloth Chore Coat | $76 | Normally $138
- Select Danner Boots On Sale
- Malouf Zoned Dough Mid Loft Charcoal Pillow | $70 | Normally $116
- Blunt Metro Windproof Umbrella | $51 | Normally $60
Solo Stove Cyber Monday
Update: The Solo Stove discounts from Black Friday are still available, but now, they're also offering BOGO Lite, Titan, and Campfire wood fired camp stoves. Just add the size of your choice to your cart, and you'll see a second stove added for free. That's one for you, and one to give as a gift.
2020 has been the year of outdoor gatherings, and Solo Stove's stylish, smokeless fire pits let you easily gather around a warm fire in your own backyard, at a friend's house, or out in the woods.
The elegance of Solo Stoves is that no matter the size or shape you choose, they all work the same way. Holes drilled all around the base of the stove allow air to enter the double-walled chamber, where it's funneled below the flame to provide fuel for combustion while reducing smoke. The whole package is wrapped up in a beautifully simple steel cylinder that's easy to move around, which is why you've almost definitely seen these things all over your Instagram feed.
Options start at just $70 for a tiny camp stove, and go up to $400 for the enormous Yukon fire pit. However, it's the 20 pound Bonfire ($230, from $350) that offers the most popular compromise between size and portability.
Proclamation Goods has taken the cooking world (and certainly your Instagram feed) by storm this year with its ingenious Duo cooking system. Comprised of a deep pot and a wide skillet, the two pieces can be used individually, or combined together to form a dutch oven. Between the two, there's basically nothing you won't be able to cook.
Both pieces are stainless steel and feature aluminum cores for even heating, just like All-Clad pans, and when you're done cooking, you can throw them straight into the dishwasher.
Proclamation is taking a unique approach to Cyber Monday this year. When you buy the Duo or either individual pan, you'll be eligible for a $50 discount. You can either keep that discount for yourself, or donate it to Studio ATAO, a nonprofit that uses food and cooking demonstrations to champion diversity, equity, and inclusion. If you donate your discount, you'll get two bonus gifts at checkout: a Proclamation dinner bell and a ticket to an online 'Cook The Menu' cook-along and discussion series class. You can also split the difference and donate half of your discount, and choose one of the two gifts at checkout.
$50 Off Proclamation Goods Pans | Includes option to donate your discount
The 5K-shooting GoPro HERO9 Black is, without a doubt, the best action camera on the market, even if it is overkill for most people. And if you're doing less skydiving and skiing than usual lately, it also works as a killer webcam. Buy it for its usual $399 today, and Amazon will throw in a $50 gift card.
GoPro HERO9 Black + $50 Amazon Gift Card | $399 | Normally $449
DJI Osmo Mobile 3
Your smartphone is an incredible video camera, but if you hold it in your hand while you shoot, your videos will always look more like home movies than cinematic shots. That's where DJI's Osmo Mobile 3 comes in.
The popular gimbal holds your smartphone steady no matter how shaky your hands are, and allows you to achieve cinema-quality pans and tilts with an easy-to-reach joystick. It's been a favorite of professional vloggers since it was released, but at just $89 today (down from $120), it's well within reach for anyone that just wants to capture better home movies.
DJI Osmo Mobile 3 | $89 | Normally $120
Moment Holiday Sale
Moment makes, by far, the best smartphone camera lens attachments on the market, and you can score rare discounts on many of the brand's lenses, phone cases, and other photography accessories right now during its Holiday Sale.
If you aren't sure where to start, I can't recommend the 58mm telephoto lens enough ($100, down from $120). If your phone only has one camera, it's like adding a 2x optical zoom. If your phone already has a 2x optical zoom lens, you can attach it to that camera instead (with a compatible case, many of which are on sale), and take 4x zoom photos. We wrote more about the lens over on The Discoverer.
If your phone lacks an ultrawide lens, you can also grab the 14mm fisheye lens for $100 (down from $120), and capture incredibly wide, creative photos that you couldn't take otherwise.
The sale also includes Moment's brand new Fanny Sling, which as you might have guessed, acts as both a fanny pack and a camera sling. We're big fans of the bag, and it's down to just $40-$50, depending on the model you choose.
But beyond just its own first party products, Moment is also a well-stocked store with photography, travel, and office gear from a variety of great brands. For example, you can save nearly $100 on the rarely discounted Fully Jarvis desk, $300 on the Sony a7 III full-frame mirrorless camera, and more.
BioLite Black Friday
If you spend any time outdoors, BioLite makes some of the coolest camping stoves, portable fire pits, and LED headlamps we've tried, and they all have rare 25% discounts right now for Cyber Monday.
The coolest (hottest?) product in the sale is certainly the FirePit, which is usually excluded from BioLite sales — we haven't seen a discount since May. The FirePit is essentially a cooler-sized portable campfire that does all the hard work for you. We've covered it in more detail here, but essentially, it uses battery powered thermoelectric fans to stoke your flames while minimizing smoke, and you can also convert it into an outdoor hibachi grill for an impromptu cookout. And not for nothing, it looks absolutely stunning in action. Several FirePit accessories are also discounted as part of the sale.
For backcountry campers, the ultra-portable CampStove 2 is also included in the sale. Just add some sticks, light the flame, and the battery-powered fan will create a roaring fire that can boil a liter of water in under five minutes. If that weren't enough, the heat of the flame also recharges the CampStove's battery, which you can use to recharge your phone even if you're miles away from the nearest power outlet.
And while it may be less exciting than the CampStove and FirePit (what's more exciting than fire, after all?), we also really love the HeadLamp 330 for $45, which is easily the most comfortable head lamp we've ever tried. Its thin, lightweight LED array won't bounce around on your forehead, even while running, and the rechargeable battery pack on the back of the HeadLamp is perfectly balanced to eliminate the need for a strap running over the top of your head. While certainly more niche, this sale also marks the first ever discount on the professional quality HeadLamp 750, which we reviewed here.
Several other camp lighting and power accessories are also included in the sale, so be sure to browse all of the deals and score some great gifts for the outdoor lovers in your life.
Right now, you can save 25% on most full-priced items on Rumpl's site for Cyber Monday, no promo code required. So pick a blanket, grab your quarantine crew, and get comfortable both indoors and out. Needless to say, they'd also make great gifts for the outdoor lovers in your life.
Better yet, Rumpl's blankets put sustainability at the forefront, featuring insulation made from recycled plastic bottles. The brand is also Climate Neutral Certified, meaning it's been audited to ensure that all of its carbon emissions are offset.
Sadly, the sale doesn't include the brand's gorgeous National Park blankets, but they're worth looking at just to window shop.

Gravel Cyber Monday
Gravel makes our favorite toiletry bags and travel blankets, and will soon release one of the most innovative travel bags we've ever seen. Right now for Cyber Monday, you can get 20% off Gravel's biggest products, larger discounts on accessories plus free shipping on all orders.
I've been using the smaller Gravel Explorer Slim myself for years, and it's one of the most well-made travel accessories I've ever used. Its interior pockets are designed with specific bathroom items in mind, like one that's sized for a standard stick of deodorant, another for your toothbrush, and a water-resistant pocket for liquids that could leak. The larger versionwould be great for people who pack a lot of cosmetics, or couples that want to share a dopp kit.
The Layover travel blanket packs down to nearly nothing, and is full of clever touches like foot wells and a neck snap to keep the blanket in place even if you doze off in your airplane seat. Plus, it could double as a picnic blanket when you aren't traveling. This deal is a match for the best we've seen on it since it was on Kickstarter.
And while it doesn't ship until next month, the Gravel Travel System is one of the most creative and innovative travel packs we've ever seen. Comprised of three different bags that you can mix and match, you could use it to pack for a weekend, or multiple weeks away from home.
Nordstrom Rack's Clear the Rack sales typically offer an extra 25% off clearance prices, and when they come around every few months, they're widely celebrated as some of the best sales on the internet.
But this is Black Friday, so a regular Clear The Rack just won't do.
While supplies last, Nordstrom Rack is taking an extra 40% off nearly 6,000 clearance styles from some of your favorite brands. You can see all of the sales here, but be sure to use the filtering tools to narrow the deals down by gender, size, brand, and style. And it's not just limited to clothes; you can also save on luggage, home decor, and more.
Just note that like all Clear the Rack sales, the most popular options are liable to sell out.
PhoneSoap UV Sanitizer
In 2020, we've become all too familiar with the fact that UV light kills germs and viruses, and PhoneSoap puts it to work on one of the dirtiest things you own; your phone. Just put your device inside, turn it on, and within minutes, the UV light will kill 99.99% of germs, bacteria, and viruses that are lurking on your device. It also doubles as a phone charger, so you can get a little extra juice while you sanitize.
And here's a hint: it can hold more than just your phone. You can also use it to sanitize jewelry, cash, and even your face masks.
Normally $80, it's down to $63 on Amazon, and would make for a very appropriate 2020 gift.
PhoneSoap 3 UV Sanitizer | $63 | Normally $80
We don't think we're going out on a limb when we say that this has been a stressful year for all of us. But weighted blankets can provide some much-needed relief.
Gravity Blankets popularized the product category, and claim that their 15, 20, and 25 pound blankets "use the power of deep touch pressure stimulation to simulate the feeling of being held." It's basically a big bear hug that you can buy and wrap yourself in whenever you want.
It works because the pressure from the blanket can increase your brain's levels of calming seratonin and sleep-inducing melatonin. You know when the dentist puts that lead apron on your chest for the x-rays? Don't you immediately feel calmer, despite being, you know, at the dentist? Imagine that feeling, but for your whole body, and in the comfort of your own home.
Right now for Black Friday, you can use promo code Holiday2020 to save 30% on everything Gravity sells, including the original Gravity Blanket, the Gravity Cooling Blanket, and even the brand new weighted robe, which is like a weighted blanket that you wear.
30% Off Sitewide | Gravity Blankets | Promo code Holiday2020

Notably, the savings apply to the ZERØGRAND All-Day Trainer, which is one of our favorite shoes for travel. It's only available for men at the moment, but women can check out the similar Global Trainer, which is actually significantly cheaper right now.
Here are a few highlights, but no matter what type of shoe you need to fill out your collection, chances are, it's on sale.
- ZERØGRAND Global Trainer | $45 | Normally $150 | Promo code THEBEST

- Mara Grand Chelsea Bootie | $67 | Normally $280 | Promo code THEBEST
Tropicfeel Cyber Monday
Tropicfeel doesn't just make some of our favorite water-friendly travel sneakers; they're also one of the most eco-conscious companies around. And so it's no surprise that they're doing something different for Cyber Monday. Rather than offering a traditional discount, they've refurbished nearly 2,000 pairs of used shoes to like-new condition, and are selling them at an unprecedented 40% off. But once they're gone, they're gone.
However, if the refurbished sneakers sell out, you can also check out Tropicfeel's Christmas Adventure Packs, which feature a range of Tropicfeel products including masks, water bottles, hand sanitizer, and in some cases, shoes, all at a hefty discount. Each box ships for free, and returns are extended to the end of January.
Everybody's been buying Peloton bikes during the pandemic, but the Hydrow smart rowing machine works nearly every muscle group in your body while transporting you to Miami, the Charles River in Boston, Loch Ness, and other rowing destinations around the world.
We reviewed it here if you want to learn more, but then head over to Hydrow's site to save $250 on the sleek rowing machine, plus $250 in free accessories.
Odds are, you have at least one friend or family member that's been singing the praises of their Buffy comforter. And now, you can finally add the direct-to-consumer blanket to your own bed for 20% off. That discount applies to both the standard Buffy Cloud, as well as the 100% eucalyptus Buffy Breeze cooling comforter, as well as the brand's sheets, pillows, and mattress protectors.
Better yet, you can try your new comforter for a week before you get charged, and if it's not for you, they'll take it right back.
LifeStraws are must-have accessories for any camper's backpack, and they're currently down to one of the best prices we've seen all year as part of Amazon's Black Friday sales.
Normally priced at $15-$17, LifeStraw allows you to drink up to 1,000 liters of water from any pond, stream, or puddle that you find, which could potentially save your life if you get stranded outdoors, or just allow you to pack less heavy water for a hike or camping trip. The built-in filters remove at least 99.9999% of waterborne bacteria, and 99.9% of waterborne protozoan parasites, surpassing the EPA's filtration standards, and it's as easy to use as, well, a straw.
LifeStraw | $13 | Normally $15-$17
If the LifeStraw sells out, this similar Sawyer water filter is also on sale for $18 right now, down from the usual $20. It even comes with a special bag that you can drink from, so you won't have to crouch over a stream or pond.
Sawyer Personal Water Filter | $18 | Normally $20
Our Favorite Travel Umbrella
Our favorite travel umbrella is designed with strong wind gusts in mind, and it has a semi-rare discount today to just $18, from the usual $23.
The Repel Windproof Travel Umbrella features a dual canopy design that allows wind to pass through the umbrella while keeping rain out, which means it's less likely to turn inside out or fly out of your hands. It's also reinforced with nine fiberglass ribs, rather than the 6-8 flimsy aluminum ribs that you'd find on most inexpensive umbrellas. And finally, its teflon-coated canopy means water will bead up and shake off with ease once you reach your destination, so you won't get your floors wet.
It's not an expensive umbrella--it's only about twice what you'd spend on an "emergency" umbrella at a pharmacy--but it's one that will actually last.
Repel Windproof Travel Umbrella | $18 | Normally $23
Amazon Music Unlimited
If you're not currently a subscriber to AmazonMusic Unlimited, you can get your first three months for FREE right now.
The service is essentially the Amazon equivalent of Apple Music or Spotify, but if you're a Prime member, it's actually a bit less expensive the its competitors at $8 per month.
3 Free Months of Amazon Music Unlimited | Auto-renews at $8 or $10 per month, depending on Prime membership status.
When you think about it, Alexa actually makes more sense in the car than it does at home. At home, setting reminders, controlling music, and placing calls without using your hands is a convenience. In the car? It's a safety necessity.
For just $20 today (down from $50), the Echo Auto connects to your phone over Bluetooth, and your car's stereo over either Bluetooth or an aux jack, allowing you to get directions, queue up news reports, or play Jeopardy in the car with nothing but your voice.
Echo Auto | $20 | Normally $50
Echo Wall Clock
The Echo Wall Clock is, low-key, one of my favorite purchases of the last couple of years, and if these two things apply to you, I bet you'll love it too:
1) You frequently use an Echo device in the kitchen to set timers while you cook.
2) That Echo device is a speaker, and doesn't have a screen built in.
Anyone in this situation knows that digging through the Alexa app or asking your speaker how much time is left on your timer is a tedious process, but the Echo Wall Clock streamlines it by putting your timer right on your wall. In addition to acting as a standard, inoffensive 12-hour wall clock, it also has a ring of 60 LED tick marks around the outer edge that light up and count down in response to the timers you set with your Echospeaker. And since it's connected to your Echo, the clock always keeps perfect time, and even adjusts itself for daylight saving time.
I would gladly pay, like, $100 for a new one if mine ever broke. That's how much I love the thing. But today, it's on sale for $24, down from the usual $30.
Echo Wall Clock | $24 | Normally $30
Totallee Phone Cases
Some people want a phone case that can protect their device from Grand Canyon-height drops, but many of us just want a case that will add minimal bulk while protecting our phone from scratches and minor mistakes. That's Totallee's specialty.
The brand's matte cases are only 0.02” thin, and its transparent cases are just a hair heftier at 0.03” thin. I've been using one of the Wirecutter-recommended cases for over a year, and it's my favorite phone case that I've ever used. It provides some protection without fundamentally changing what your phone feels like, which in my mind, is the perfect balance to strike.
For a limited time for Black Friday, you can use promo code DEAL4BFCM at checkout to save 30% on all of Totallee's cases for iPhones and popular Android devices, in the color of your choice.
30% Off Totallee Cases | Promo code DEAL4BFCM
Away Cyber Monday
While it pales in comparison to the sitewide sale it offered a few months ago, the fact that Away is offering a Cyber Monday sale at all is a noteworthy departure from holiday seasons past.
The sale focuses on bundles featuring multiple bags and accessories:
- The Weekend Set | Includes The Backpack and The Weekender | $235 | Normally $360
- The Journey Set | Includes The Expandable Bigger Carry-On, The Everywhere Bag, and The Insider Packing Cubes | $330 | Normally $455
- The Extras Set | Includes the Hanging Toiletry Bag, The Large Shoe Cube, and The Insider Packing Cubes | $115 | Normally $155
- The Extra Extras Set | Includes The Large Toiletry Bag, The Small Shoe Cube, and The Jewelry Box | $145 | Normally $185
Even after years of abuse, we've found the Away Carry On to be a durable and thoughtfully designed suitcase that we can't wait to use regularly again. With that one aforementioned exception in September, Away never offers discounts, so if any friends or family members have travel gear on their wish list, this is a rare chance to save.
Lululemon Black Friday
It's not just yoga gear: Lululemon makes high performing and comfortable workout clothes for men, women, and kids alike, no matter how they like to exercise. We rarely see big discounts on the brand's wares, so you should be sure to take full advantage of the brand's Black Friday sale, which features over 500 women's styles, and 200 for men, including the fancy sweatpants that we're all compelled to buy this year.
It's not a surprise that we're seeing discounts on Amazon's Echo smart speakers for Black Friday. But it is notable, because this new generation of Alexa-enabled devices did not go on sale during Prime Day last month.
You can get the new, spherical Echo Dot for $29, or the larger, louder Echo for $70, both the first discounts we've seen on these models. For higher fidelity audio, check out the Echo Studio for $160, or if you're more interested in the smart features than the quality of the speaker, grab a tiny Echo Flex for just $10.
Amazon Echo Dot | $29 | Normally $50
Amazon Echo | $70 | Normally $100
Amazon Echo Studio | $160 | Normally $200
Amazon Echo Flex | $10 | Normally $25
Noise Canceling Headphones
A good pair of noise canceling headphones is almost as important as a good suitcase for frequent travelers, and several of the most popular models on the market are on sale for Cyber Monday.
In our opinion, the most significant savings are on Bose's legendary QC35 II over-ear headphones, marked down to an all-time low $199 from the usual $350. In addition to nearly muting droning noises like airplane engines, they also make your music and podcasts sound great, and are incredibly comfortable for long listening sessions.
Bose QC35 II Noise Canceling Headphones | $199 | Normally $349
If only the best will do though, Black Friday's also brought out one of the first deals we've ever seen on Sony's new WH1000-XM4s. Most audio experts will tell you that these headphones offer the most comprehensive noise cancelation of any pair of headphones ever released, and you can get them for $278 from the usual $349.
Sony WH1000-XM4 Noise Canceling Headphones | $278 | Normally $349
And finally, if you prefer earbuds to over-ears, you can't do better than Apple's AirPods Pros, which are on sale for $190 from the usual $249 (more on that below). If you don't have an iPhone, you should also consider Amazon's own Echo Buds for $80, which also feature noise cancelation and, naturally, built-in Alexa.
Amazon Echo Buds | $80 | Normally $130
We've been seeing deals in the ~$200 range on AirPods Pros for a few weeks now in the run-up to Black Friday, but today only, Woot has brought them down to just $190.
The Pros have everything that made the original AirPods great, but with the addition of adjustable, ear-sealing tips, active noise cancelation, and a unique transparency mode that pipes in sound from the outside world when you want to have a conversation or be aware of your surroundings.
Not for nothing, they also have excellent microphones, making them great for phone calls, and yes, Zoom meetings. There's a reason half of the talking head interviewees on cable news these days are wearing them.
We've seen lots of deals on all of Apple's AirPods lately, but unlike the standard AirPods, the Pros aren't expected to be replaced with a new model until late into 2021, so you can buy these without fear.
True Wireless Earbuds
If you like the idea of Apple's AirPods--truly wireless headphones that pair instantly and charge inside their own carrying case--but don't feel like spending over $150, then this deal's for you.
Anker's been turning out the best budget true wireless headphones for years, and the brand's Soundcore Life P2 earbuds are one of the best values in the space at their usual $50. But if you clip the 20% coupon on the page, you can get them for just $40.
The earbuds feature the latest Bluetooth 5.0 technology for reliable pairing to your phone, they run for seven hours on a charge (and up to 40 hours if you count the battery case), and are even IPX7 waterproof, so you can wear them while you sweat, or out in the rain. Noise canceling microphones ensure that your voice calls and Zoom meetings soundcrystal clear, and adjustable eartips help isolate sound for a better listening experience, even on a loud train or plane.
These have gone on sale a few times over the past year, and our readers bought over 2,000 pairs.
Anker SoundCore Life P2 Earbuds | $40 | Normally $50 Clip the 20% coupon
For 25 years, California-based Equator Coffees has been ethically sourcing Fair Trade Certified coffee from Sumatra, Ethiopia, Kenya, Colombia, and other coffee hotbeds around the world, and sustainably roasting it with energy efficient equipment. In fact, they were California's first coffeeroaster to earn Certified B Corp. status, a distinction reserved for companies proven to use their business as a force for global good.
And yes, to answer your next question, the coffee is delcious.
Right now for Cyber Monday, Equator is offering free shipping on all orders, throwing in a free bag of Holiday Blend with $50 orders, and adding in some free instant coffee when you spend $75.
All three of Amazon's entry-level Kindle e-readers are back on sale today to help you cozy up with some good books this winter.
The entry-level Kindle ($60, down from $90) now includes a backlight to let you read in the dark, as well as support for Bluetooth headphones and Audible audiobooks, so you can seamlessly switch between reading and listening without changing devices.
But the better deal, frankly, is the Kindle Paperwhite for $85, down from $130. It has a much sharper screen which will look more like real paper, it comes with three free months of Kindle Unlimited with access to over 1,000,000 books, and it's even waterproof, so you can read it without fear in the pool or the bathtub.
And for the most discerning of readers, Black Friday also includes a deal on the high-end Kindle Oasis, which is usually excluded from sales. The $195 reader (down from $270) boasts a better lighting system that can adjust its color temperature depending on the ambient light and the time of day.
Amazon's line of Fire Tablets aren't exactly laptop replacements, but they're perfectly suited for reading articles, browsing the web, and downloading some movies to watch on a plane.
For a limited time, Amazon's dropped nearly the entire lineup back down to the best prices we've seen, starting at just $40 for the new Fire 7 7" tablet tablet, and going up to $80 for the sharper, faster 10" model.
But the best deal for most people will probably be the Fire HD 8 for a new all-time low $55. Compared to the Fire 7, it has a sharper screen, louder speakers, better battery, and faster performance for just $15 extra.
Amazon's new Ring Doorbell eschewed a removable battery pack and the fastest possible Wi-Fi connectivity in favor of an impressive $100 price tag, and now, Black Friday's brought it all the way down to $70. The Ring Doorbell will automatically start filming when it detects movement near your front door, and will even let you speak to whoever's knocking via a two-way intercom. If you're frequently away from home, it's a must-own.
Ring Video Doorbell | $70 | Normally $100
If your home internet needs an upgrade to support all of your Zoom meetings and quaranstreaming, Eero's mesh Wi-Fi system ensures that every corner of your home will be covered in fast, low-latency internet.
While most home internet systems rely on a single router to cover your entire house, mesh systems like Eero let you place multiple routers at various parts of your home, all of which will work together to create a single, far-reaching network. All the technical stuff happens in the background; you just plug in your routers, set your network name and password using the Eero app, and let the network do the rest.
The newest generation of Eero routers supports the latest Wi-Fi 6 protocol, meaning they'll offer better range and speeds to the newest devices, and will still feel state-of-the-art years down the road. Today, the standard Eero 6 has its first ever discount down to $103, and the more powerful Eero 6 Pro is down to $183.
When it comes to cooking thermometers, your search can begin and end with Thermoworks. The British brand's best-in-class thermometers can be found in the kitchens of many restaurants, and its iconic Thermapen is the choice of both Cook's Illustrated and America's Test Kitchen.
In just 2-3 seconds, the Thermapen will give you a reading accurate to within ±0.7°F (±0.4°C), and the backlit screen will even auto-rotate your readout depending on how you're holding the thermometer. The Thermapen rarely gets discounted, but ThermoWorks just kicked off a Black Friday sale, bringing the iconic thermometer down to $74 in the color of your choice.
Thermapen Mk 4 | $74 | Normally $99
I know you have a "system" to keep track of your keys and TV remotes, but we all make mistakes. Tile trackers let you use your phone or favorite voice assistant to find anything you commonly lose, from your wallet to your AirPods to your cat. Today for Black Friday, Tile trackers of all shapes and sizes are on sale starting at just $15, with bigger discounts available on various Tile bundles.
There's never a bad time of year to invest in a great pair of sunglasses; particularly a pair that you're less likely to lose.
We’ve sung Maho Shades’ praises over on The Discoverer for their unique Zuma Fit and Retention System, which uses a proprietary thermoplastic elastomer that employs the same type of electric force that allows geckos to stick to a wall. Basically, the wetter your glasses get, whether from sweat or from the sea, the more firmly they’ll stick to your face. We can’t guarantee that you won’t lose them in the ocean, but it’s a lot less likely than most shades.
Right now for Cyber Monday, the more you spend at Maho, the more you stand to save. Take 20% off sitewide with code PIE20, 30% off $200+ orders with code PIE30, or 40% off $300+ orders with code PIE40.

Hydro Flask's vacuum-insulated drinkware options are our favorites for transporting water, wine, or anything else from your car to your campsite or picnic area, and will keep your beverage of choice at a steady temperature for hours, with no leaks. And of course, it doesn't hurt that every Hydro Flask purchase supports the brand's Parks For All foundation to maintain and protect our public lands.
For a limited time for Cyber Monday, Hydro Flask is taking 25% off everything, including the Winter Wonderland limited edition lineup.
25% Off Sitewide | Hydro Flask
Forsake Cyber Monday
It's not hard to figure out why we love Forsake's Sneakerboots. The shoes combine the comfort and looks of sneakers with the durability, support, and grip of a good pair of hiking boots. This "peak to pavement" approach makes them perfect for adventurous travelers who want to save room in their suitcase, or day hikers who want to go straight from the trail to a restaurant for dinner.
Now, the brand has kicked off one of its best sales ever for Cyber Monday, with discounts of up to $60 on nearly every style it sells. For women, prices start at just $65 for the sneaker-like Maya, and guys can get the low-rise Meridian for just $70. For the rest of the deals on the brand's more rugged boots and more, be sure to head over to Forsake's site before the end of the month.
Peak Design Cyber Monday
Peak Design has earned something of a cult following in recent years for its thoughtfully designed and incredibly well built photography and travel gear, including some of the best camera slings, camera straps, and backpacks we've ever tried, as well as a truly groundbreaking travel tripod that offers professional features in a remarkably compact package.
The only problem? Peak's stuff almost never goes on sale.
All the more reason to shop the brand's Cyber Monday sale, which offers 20% off most bags, 10% off tripods, and more (also available at Huckberry and Moment). If you have any photography buffs on your holiday shopping list, we guarantee there's something they'll want in here.
Fire TV Sticks
If you're in the market for a Fire TV Stick, there's no need to wait until Black Friday, as all three models just got discounts that match or exceed what we saw on Prime Day. You can get the Fire TV Stick 4K for $30, the 1080p Fire TV Stick for $28, or the Fire TV Stick Lite (which is the same as the Fire TV Stick, but lacks volume and TV power buttons on the remote) for $18. Our advice? Get the 4K model. Even if you don't need it now, it'll be more future-proof.
Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K | $30 | Normally $50
Peacock is NBC's new in-house streaming service, and while a lot of its content is available for free, you'll need Peacock Premium to enjoy everything the service has to offer, including original series, more movies, next-day access to NBC shows, and and crucially, 175 exclusive English Premier League soccer matches (plus on-demand replays of all 380 matches this season).
Peacock Premium normally costs $5 per month or $50 per year, but if you sign up for an annual plan today, you'll get your first year for just $40, complete with a 7 day free trial.
Peacock Premium 1-Year | $40 | Normally $50
Hulu lets you stream many popular shows the day after they air, and also has an impressive slate or original series and films like The Handmaid's Tale, Palm Springs, and Little Fire Everywhere. A good deal at its usual $6 per month, you can get your first year for just $2 per month when you lock in this Black Friday deal.
Hulu | $2/month | Normally $6/month
Western Rise crafts high performing menswear that never goes out of style, and this weekend only, everything it sells is 25% off. If you need somewhere to get started, don't miss the odor-resistant StrongCore Merino Tee or the breathable and stretchy Evolution Pant, both of which are particularly great options for travelers.
Alpha Industries is an official supplier of the U.S. military, and its NASA bomber jacket is one of our favorite gives for aviation geeks. Right now, you can save 20% on the brand's entire site with promo code HOLIDAY20.
20% Off Alpha Industries | Promo code HOLIDAY20
Amazon's newest Ring Alarm home security systems aren't just on sale for the best prices ever right now (by a wide margin, in fact); they also come with a free Echo Dot smart speaker that you can use to control your system with your voice.
Ring Alarm security systems are completely modular, meaning you can add additional motion sensors, door sensors, cameras, keypads, and other accessories on demand, so you can build the perfect system for your home. You can also use the system without any monthly fees, but if you want professional 24/7 monitoring, it's reasonably priced at only $10 per month.
Prices start at just $120 for a basic five-piece starter kit, down from the usual $200, and an all-time low by $40. If you want more accessories, the discounts get bigger as you buy larger kits.
Ring Alarm Systems | $120-$200 | Normally $200-$330
Nugget Ice Maker
We've all become better chefs and mixologists this year, but there's one restaurant specialty that we just can't pull off ourselves without special equipment: soft, chewable nugget ice.
GE's countertop nugget ice maker can churn out 24 pounds of the Sonic-style ice cubes per day, doesn't require a water hookup, and can even be controlled from across the house via a smartphone app. Is it an extravagance? Absolutely. Do you deserve it? I certainly think so. $466 is a match for an all-time low price, and over $80 less than the usual $550.
GE Nugget Ice Maker | $466 | Normally $550
Designed by a former Green Beret who wanted a bag that was built to military standards but would look right at home on New York City streets, GORUCK's ruck sacks have been widely praised as some of the most durable backpacks on the market. And if you ever did manage to wear yours out, they're all backed up by the brand's famous SCARS guarantee for a lifetime, no receipt required.
The brand's original GR1 and larger GR2 hardly ever go on sale, but right now, GORUCK's early Black Friday sale offers big savings on both bags, in addition to GORUCK clothes and accessories.
Getting wine delivered isn't just a great way to avoid an extra trip to the grocery store right now; it's also a way to experience other parts of the world without actually leaving home. Right now for Black Friday, new Winc members can get their first delivery for 50% off (maximum $50 discount), so you can stock your wine rack for less.
Winc starts you off with a brief quiz asking questions like how you take your coffee, or how much you like berries, and then recommends bottles to suit your taste, though you can always swap them out (or order extras) before completing your order. But since Winc is a monthly membership, you'll need to either cancel (via live chat or a phone call, annoyingly) or remember to click the "Skip a Month" button in your account settings to avoid being charged for future credits.

Wayfair Cyber Monday
It wouldn't be a major sale holiday without a huge sale at Wayfair. The direct-to-consumer furniture wholesaler is offering tons of discounts for every room, and for every style.
The easiest way to sort through the deluge will be to visit this sale page, and choose the category you're interested in browsing. Need a new couch? Upgrading your kitchen appliances? Still putting the finishing touches on your home office? You'll have plenty of deals to sort through.
And of course, we're always suckers for these vintage travel posters.
For the biggest deals though, be sure to check out the closeout section, which is hidden at the bottom of the Black Friday deal hub. Here, the savings can reach up to 80%, and probably rival the deals from your neighbor's last garage sale, but quantities are limited.
Whether Covid-19 is still with us or not, outdoor wine tastings and winery tours will be a great way to get out of the house and see the countryside in 2021. Many regions on the west coast offer winery passports with access to exclusive deals and free tastings at a variety or local vineyards, and you can grab one (or more!) for just $29 from Travelzoo today, down from the usual $59.
Each passport page on Travelzoo links to a list of eligible wineries in the region, with details about their specific offers. Expect things like bottle discounts, BOGO tastings, and waived tasting fees when you buy a bottle, just for starters. Each passport is valid for the entirety of 2021, and they'd make great gifts for your friends out west. Just note that once you buy the voucher, you'll need to redeem it to actually get your passport.

Patagonia Better Sweater
Patagonia's ubiquitous Better Sweater is a must-have for fall, and the classic gray women's version is on sale for $50, from the usual $99. The iconic 1/4 zip offers the look and feel of wool, but with a polyester fabric that's significantly easier to care for. Plus, like all of Patagonia's apparel, the Better Sweater is sustainably made with processes that reduce water usage and energy consumption, and is Fair Trade Certified sewn.

It may lack the Bluetooth connectivity, multiple brushing modes, and included travel case that you'd get with more expensive Sonicare toothbrushes, but the Sonicare DailyClean 1100 is still a Sonicare through and through. It uses the same brush heads as the more expensive models, and will clean your teeth just as well, and that's what really matters at the end of the day (and at the beginning of the day).
Right now on Amazon, you can invest in your oral health for just $20, a match for an all-time low price on this brush.
Philips Sonicare DailyClean 1100 | $20 | Normally $20-$30
Backcountry Cyber Sale (Featuring Patagonia)
Backcountry's Cyber Sale has got you covered for all the outdoor lovers on your holiday gifting list, with deals available from top brands like Marmot, The North Face, Sorel, and even Patagonia. Nobody's ever been upset to find a Patagonia Nano Puff (men | women) under the tree.
The folks that brought you one of our favorite travel clothing fabrics and the face mask that took Japan by storm is always known for offering tremendous value for the money. But that's especially true during Black Friday, with deals on everything from warm HEATTECH undershirts to cashmere sweaters. Plus, if you spend $150, they'll throw in three of those aforementioned face masks for free.
Adding a multitool to your keychain is a big commitment; your keys have to fit in your pocket every time you leave the house, and space is of paramount importance.
That's why we love Malboro & Kane's Claw. It's a single piece of titanium that's smaller than the diameter of a penny, and yet can open boxes, bottles, and paint cans, or even turn a screw in a pinch. It's not the easiest tool for doing any of those things, to be sure, but it's definitely the smallest and most convenient, because you'll always have it with you.
Normally $30, you can use promo code SEEQR at checkout today to add it to your keychain for $15.

An African safari is a once-in-a-lifetime experience that often goes unchecked on our bucket lists due to the high cost. But Travelzoo's latest refundable getaway makes an all-inclusive wildlife-spotting experience quite a bit more obtainable than you'd expect.
To be clear, this is still not an inexpensive trip. You'll pay $7,450 for two people for 7 nights (or $10,550 for 10 nights) at the Chikunto Safari Lodge. Opened in 2018, the lodge is located inside the South Luangwa National Park in Zambia, which features one of the largest populations of leopards, lions and elephants in all of Africa.
That said, the normal high season rate at the property runs $950 per night (including park fees) per person, meaning the same 7-night stay for two would cost $13,300 when booking direct. Despite the huge discount, your stay will include an elevated luxury tent with outdoor seating area, all of your food and drinks, two game-viewing activities per day, airport transfers, park fees, and even laundry services. You'll still be on the hook for your flights, but otherwise, this package should cover just about all of the costs of your trip.
To book, you'll need to buy the voucher now, and then redeem it through the property between February 15, 2021 and October 31, 2022, giving you plenty of time to figure out the logistics. If you're unable to make the trip, the voucher's also fully refundable.

Few companies put sustainability at the forefront quite like Coalatree, but just as importantly, the brand's everyday and outdoor styles look great and perform flawlessly.
The popular Trailhead pants (men | women), for example, are water-resistant and feature four-way stretch. The Whistler Windbreaker (men | women) features a remarkable self-healing material that can patch small holes just by rubbing your fingers together. And the Evolution Hoodie is one of the softest pieces of clothing we've ever tried, and yet, it's sustainably made from recycled coffee grounds.
Coalatree rarely runs sales, but as part of its Black Friday savings, you can take 30%-50% off sitewide, and get a free camping hammock added automatically to orders over $150.

Saxx is famous for its men's underwear with the patented "ballpark pouch," but lately, the brand has also been making pajamas with the same premium modal fabrics, and it's some of the softest stuff I've ever put on my body. Right now for Black Friday, you can upgrade your sleepwear and your underwear for 20-40% off.
Baggu's excellent reusable shopping bags might be out of fashion in the age of COVID, but it's never a bad time to buy the brand's backpacks, totes, and face masks. Right now for Cyber Monday, you can save 25% sitewide, with free shipping on sall orders.
Sam's Club Membership
Sam's Club, much like Costco, requires a paid membership to access, but you'll never see a better deal on your first year of membership than this.
Just pay $23 for a new membership at StackSocial (with promo code BFSAVE20), and you'll also get coupons for a free rotisserie chicken and an 8-pack of cupcakes. Normally, you'd pay $45 for the membership alone. Just note that this deal is only available for new Sam's Club members.
