Best TV deals
The first TV is Insignia’s Fire TV Edition, model NS-32DF310NA19. We don’t like Amazon’s Fire TV as much as Roku, because the Fire TV menu is overly admiring Amazon content, and compared to the simplicity of Roku TV, it is generally more confusing. However, this model does have a built-in Alexa, which works perfectly with the Echo Dot (pictured), and its price is $30 cheaper than Amazon’s Roku.
TCL and Hisense are not the only brands with discounts in this promotion. Once again, we don’t expect Samsung to achieve the image quality of similar TVs in this size class, but if you prioritize the combination of large screens and prestige brands over other products, it’s too tempting. As Black Friday approaches, we expect other 70-inch TVs to be priced at around US$500, but this is still a crazy low price.
This deal is also available on Amazon and elsewhere, but it is enough to be included here. The LG CX OLED TV is our favorite high-end TV in 2020. This price is a new low, $200 lower than the previous low-$100 more than the 48-inch size.
Moreover, if you want to buy a larger product, the 65-inch size will also hit a new low: $1,900. Read our review of the LG OLED CX series.
Best smart home deals
The “Intermediate” Echo Show can also be priced on Golden Day. If you are looking for something that can be placed on a kitchen counter etc., it is almost certainly better than the 5.5-inch Show 5, and it only costs an extra $20.
Or, if you choose to purchase the Blink Mini indoor camera at the same time, you will need to pay an extra $25. In this way, you only need to pay 70 dollars, which can save a lot compared to the normal price of purchasing these products separately.
Best laptop deals
For students who are looking for an affordable distance learning machine, this basic laptop is ideal for them. Currently offering a discount of $150, its price is lower than most Chromebooks. It runs Windows 10 and has a 10th generation Intel Core i3 CPU, 8GB RAM and 256GB SSD. The 15.6-inch display has a full HD (1,920×1,080 pixel) resolution, which can provide better images compared to the 1,366×768 pixel resolution provided by most entry-level laptops.
The 13-inch Spectre x360 is one of the most popular 2-in-1 convertibles from CNET Reviews, with its outstanding styling, light weight and long battery life. This is not a case of retailers using steep discounts to eliminate old products. This 13.3-inch 2-in-1 product can enjoy a substantial discount of $250, and is equipped with Intel’s latest silicon and the 11th generation Intel Core i7 CPU. Because of this price, getting a 512GB SSD instead of 256GB storage is also a boon. Read our HP Spectre x360 review.
Lenovo’s premium 2-in-1 product Yoga C940 has a solid and sleek all-metal design, and a touch screen that can rotate the tablet mode 360 degrees. It includes an active pen, which can also wake up immediately from sleep, which is one of the phone-like functions provided by Intel Project Athena.
This configuration uses a 14-inch display, driven by the 10th generation Core i7 CPU, 16GB RAM and 512GB SSD (with 32GB ultra-fast Optane memory), and has a 4K resolution. A similarly configured Yoga C40 on Lenovo’s website costs $1,650, so this deal is better than it looks. And it looks good. Read our Lenovo Yoga C940 review.
Best Audio Deal
This entry-level Samsung sound bar is sold out. It provides 2.1 sound through a soundbar with four 40-watt stereo speakers and a 130-watt subwoofer, with a total output of 290 watts. For price, this is a great power.
Sony’s latest noise-cancelling headphones-arguably the top noise-cancelling headphones available today-were recently sold for $300 as part of Amazon Prime Day. Now, its lowest price is $278. Read CNET’s review.
Jabra’s Elite Active 75t is a slightly stronger version of the Elite 75t and is also available (prices are $140 or $40, respectively). Both models are currently one of the best true wireless earbuds, and can now be upgraded through software upgrades for active noise reduction (new models that have been shipped recently may have been equipped with upgrades).
The Elite Active 75t looks almost the same as the Elite 75t, but after careful inspection, you will find that the surface treatment of the box and earplugs is slightly different. Rather than the hard and smooth surface of Elite Active 75t, Active 75t has a soft touch surface and grip. Or, as Jabra said, it is “made with a durable dust and sweat coating, and has a higher IP waterproof rating, from IP56 (IP56 for Elite Active 75t) to IP57, making it waterproof .” Read CNET’s comments.
The price of Beats Powerbeats Pro is usually $200, sometimes with even bigger discounts, but the $160 for the lava red version is close to the lowest price we’ve seen. Read CNET’s review.
UE’s Megaboom 3 is priced as low as $120, but we have not seen its price lower than this, so this is a big deal for a very sturdy portable Bluetooth speaker. Of course, it was released in 2018. Only black is priced at $100.
Beats Solo Pro is a very good set of in-ear noise reduction headphones. The only problem is that they are overpriced at $300. Their price is $170, which is very attractive. This is lower than the early sales price of $200 we saw a few weeks ago. Read CNET’s review.
The Jabra Elite 85h, priced at $150, is a great-value alternative to higher-priced premium noise-canceling headphones from Bose and Sony. It has good sound, comfortable fit and excellent voice call performance, making it an ideal choice for working at home. Amazon also has this price. Read the CNET review.

After discovering the deal, I immediately walked around my house looking for the location of this beauty. I spent many years on the Golden Tee Golf Tour-when people could go out and bar.
Some arcade games cannot be replicated on the console, and Golden Tee is one of them. But this machine includes the most important trackball controller, which is why I decided to find it under the roof. Considering the number of quarters I used for actual transactions, this matter may pay for itself in a few weeks.
In the typical Dyson way, Cyclone V10 is great but expensive. However, by reducing the price by $150, this powerful cordless vacuum cleaner will become a more attractive proposition. Read our preview of Dyson Cyclone V10.
These products seem to be out of stock now. If we see them appear again, we will update them.
We haven’t reviewed this Hisense (this is an exclusive product of Best Buy), but we don’t want it to be as good as some of the best 65-inch TVs now. Just like the TCL above, Roku>Android. But forget all this for now: this is a 65-inch 4K TV that costs $250. That was a sensational level, people, we don’t want this model to continue.
TCL is famous for Roku TV. We prefer the Roku smart TV system instead of the Android TV version in this TV. But at this price, you only need to buy Roku Streaming Stick Plus, connect it to this TV, and it will still work. Use first. In addition to intelligence, we also hope that the performance of this 4 series TV is “good enough”, just like Roku.
This acclaimed top-of-the-line mixer comes with a 5-quart stainless steel mixing bowl, dough hooks, flat mixer and whisk. There is also an accessory hub for adding things like peelers and meat grinders. There are four colors to choose from.
