Hi, this is Imad, the news editor here at Tom’s Guide. I’ll be taking over the Cyber Monday liveblog for the next hour. I’m not sure what to call the weekend that sits between Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Black Friday weekend perhaps? Well, it seems that Amazon is content with calling Saturday, Nov. 27, Cyber Monday as deals have already begun.
Here’s a stellar deal for the Anker Power Bank Bundle. It includes PowerCore III Elite and the 65W PD Wall Charger for $51. That’s $48 off the retail price.
The PowerCore III Elite is a massive 19,200 mAh battery bank that can charge a MacBook Air from zero to full. The 65W PD Wall Charger, is, as the name suggests, a wall charger with super-fast charging. Both the PowerCore and PD Wall Charger feature 60-65W of charging speed, so you’ll be able to top up devices in a snap.

What if you’re not living in the Apple life? I’m guessing there are people out there who want a great Android tablet, but don’t want the hamstrung no-Google apps situation that is found on Amazon’s Fire tablets. So, let’s talk about the Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 FE.
One of my colleagues has been testing it, and raves about its thin bezels, huge 12.4-inch screen and included S-Pen. Yes, unlike with the iPad, Samsung actually throws in a stylus for free. And right now, Samsung’s got it at $100 off! Want the attachable keyboard cover, and to save more money? Amazon’s slashed $180 off that bundle.

We’ve seen pricing on the entry-level M1 MacBook Air go up and down throughout the week, but I feel compelled to call out the fact that this excellent laptop is still on sale. Still the latest MacBook Air, this is one of my favorite laptops I’ve used in years thanks to its amazingly long battery life.
I’ve held onto our review unit for testing beta versions of macOS, and I use it throughout the week and rarely, if ever, think to plug it in for a charge. In my MacBook Air with M1 review, I explain everything to love about this laptop, including its sharp screen and surprisingly fast (for an Air) performance. The 512GB MacBook Air is currently $1,099, with an even bigger $150 discount.

Hi there, I’m Henry T. Casey, and I’m taking over this live blog for the next little bit. I’m a senior editor at Tom’s Guide, covering streaming, Apple, Kindles and various other things, so I’ll have expertise on a range of Cyber Monday Amazon deals that I hunt for.
Question: Do you have a mesh Wi-Fi system yet? No? Well then this next deal is for you. A Mesh setup coats your house in Wi-Fi, giving you a strong signal even in those awkward corners where you can never normally get a connection.
TP-Link’s Deco range is one of the best and Amazon currently has a great deal on the Deco P9, giving you three units for $157. Place one by your router and the other two in different rooms and you should have a great signal wherever you are.

Too big is never big enough when it comes to TVs, which is why we like this $400 price cut on this 75-inch Samsung Q60A QLED TV.
This QHD set uses Quantum Dot technology to produce an image that’s nearly as good as OLED sets, and has dual LED backlights for improved contrast. It has a refresh rate of 60Hz, so it may not be the best for gamers, but it does have Alexa built in, and support for Google Assistant.
SAMSUNG 75-Inch Class QLED Q60A Series: was $1,499, now $1,097
Do you know what the best Cyber Monday earbuds deal is? It’s not the Airpods 3 for $149 or AirPods Pro for $169, great though they are. Instead, I’d point you in the direction of the Jabra Elite Active 75t for $76!
The Elite Active 75t sits at the very top of our best wireless earbuds list, so any price cut is worthy of your attention. But to see it cut by 49% is just ridiculous.
As you’ll see in our Jabra Elite Active 75t review, you get active noise cancellation, superb call quality and a comfortable fit. We also like the dynamic sound quality, waterproof design and that you get longer battery life than the AirPods Pro. Don’t miss out on this one.

We love Roku devices here at Tom’s Guide, so it’s great that so many of them have enjoyed a price cut for Cyber Monday.
For instance, the Roku Streaming Stick 4K is available for less than $30 right now! That’s an incredible deal on what we consider to be the best streaming device on the planet.
Just slot it into the HDMI port on the back of your TV and you’ll get access to lovely 4K footage from all of your favorite streaming services, including Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Disney Plus and more. It also supports Dolby Vision, plus the remote is great too, controlling your TV’s volume so you don’t need to use more than one.

Not only does it have the powerful Apple M1 chip, but it’s also a great macOS machine, with a solid display, minimalist design and a lovely large trackpad. And thanks to the best Cyber Monday deals, you can now get it for $100 off at Amazon.
It’s not the biggest saving ever, but any discount on an Apple product is worth having. And for $1,199 you’ll be getting a laptop that’ll last you for years and play nice with your other Apple devices.

Air fryers are one of the hottest items this Cyber Monday, and I’ve totally bought into the hype and got one for myself.
The model I went for (after lots of agonizing) is the Instant Pot Duo Crisp and Air Fry from Amazon, which is reduced from $199 to $119 right now. It’s supremely versatile, giving you 11 abilities in one including air fryer, slow cooker, sauté, sous-vide, dehydrate, roast, bake and more.

Right on cue Amazon has cut the price of almost all of its own devices, among them the new Fire TV Stick 4K Max. This is the first time the recently released streamer has ever been reduced, making it a solid Cyber Monday deal.
This is Amazon’s best Fire TV Stick to date. It sports a new quad-core CPU and a 750MHz GPU that speeds up the load time of apps like Disney Plus. It also makes for a smooth and snappy navigation experience overall. Per our Amazon Fire TV Stick Max review, this is our favorite Fire TV device to date.

One of our favorite Black Friday deal was on the Oculus Quest 2, and it’s good to see that it’s still going for Cyber Monday.
Not only does Amazon have the best VR headset in stock, but when you buy it you’ll get a free $50 Amazon gift card with your purchase. Be sure to use coupon “OCULUS50” at checkout to get the gift card.
The Oculus Quest 2 is an all-in-one VR system, which means you don’t need to set up any external sensors or cameras. Just charge it up, pop it on your head and you’ll be exploring virtual worlds in minutes. Talk about an awesome holiday gift.

If you’re looking to get healthy and you want a good affordable smartwatch, the Fitbit Sense is on sale for $199 right now at Amazon.
This is a great deal for anyone who’s overindulged this Thanksgiving, as it’s packed with sensors to help you get fit and healthy. As we said in our review, it’s a pretty ambitious device offering not only expected features such as GPS tracking and heart-rate monitoring, but also blood-oxygen and ECG monitoring, sleep tracking and more. It can even detect your skin temperature.
Fitbit Sense: was $299 now $199
On the lookout for an OLED TV, but put off by the high price tags? That’s fair enough — they are pretty expensive. Or at least they were, because we’re seeing some great OLED TV bargains ahead of Cyber Monday, and this is one of the best.
For a limited time, Amazon has the 48-inch LG A1 OLED TV on sale for $896. That’s a 25% saving on the usual $1,199 price, but the deal gets better still, because you can get a free $100 credit on your Amazon account if you use the coupon code “HBQ5KMZKGRRP” during checkout. It’d almost be rude not to buy it, right?

Hello and welcome to Tom’s Guide’s Amazon Cyber Monday deals live blog. It wouldn’t be Cyber Monday without some massive AirPods deals, and 2021 isn’t letting us down on this front. Every single model of Apple’s wireless earbuds have been reduced, from the AirPods Pro to the newly-released AirPods 3.
The redesigned AirPods 3 are $149 at Amazon. That’s a fantastic savings of $30 on Apple’s newest wireless earbuds, which only launched in October. Amazon lists them as being on sale for $169 ($10 less than RRP), but you can save another $20 at checkout.
