Apple iPad 10.2-Inch Tablet (9th Gen, 2021)

Best Tablet Deal

Apple iPad 10.2-Inch Tablet (9th Gen, 2021) for $250 ($40 off)

This is our favorite iPad (8/10, WIRED Recommends) for most people (you’ll find it at the top of our Best iPads and Best Tablets guides. It’s not only affordable, but it also packs a ton of great features, including a True Tone display that adjusts the color temperature to match the ambient lighting in your environment, a front camera with support for Center Stage (which keeps you in the frame on video calls), 64 gigabytes of storage on the base model, and a Touch ID-enabled home button (a headphone jack too!). It’s compatible with accessories like the first-generation Apple Pencil and Apple’s Smart Keyboard. We’ve rounded up more tablet deals here.


Google Pixel 8

Best Phone Deal

Google Pixel 8 (Unlocked) Android Phone for $549 ($150 off)

The Pixel 8 (7/10, WIRED Review) is Google’s newest flagship phone. It’s good! It performs well, the camera is fantastic, and the performance is snappy. The 6.2-inch display is super bright, and Google has finally added secure Face Unlock, so you can use your mug to access sensitive apps like your banking app. The biggest change? It will receive a whopping seven years of software updates—and Google will have spare parts for repairs for that length of time too. That’s the longest support you’ll find on any Android phone—period. It’s a shame the battery life is so-so. (We have more Pixel and Google deals here, including a nice $200 discount on the Pixel 8 Pro.) Be sure to check out our other top Cyber Monday smartphone deals.


Apple Watch Series 9

Best Smartwatch Deal

Apple Watch Series 9 (41 mm) for $329 ($20 off)

The Series 9 (7/10, WIRED Recommends) is the latest Apple Watch and also our favorite. If you’re looking to upgrade, it delivers faster performance, improved battery life, and a brighter display. There’s also a new Double Tap feature as well, which triggers functions like playing music or hanging up a call by tapping your index finger and thumb. With the second-gen ultra-wideband chip, you can precision-locate your iPhone and AirPods too. Looking for other options? We have more fitness tracker and smartwatch deals here.


Kindle Paperwhite

Best Ebook Reader Deal

Kindle Paperwhite Signature Edition for $140 ($50 off)

The Signature Edition Paperwhite (8/10, WIRED Recommends) packs a few extra features over the standard Kindle Paperwhite. It has the ability to auto-adjust brightness depending on your surroundings, and there’s also wireless charging and 32 gigabytes of storage. If you don’t need all the bells and whistles, the regular Paperwhite (which we recommend for most people) is also on sale for $120 ($20 off). You’ll find more Kindle deals here.


UGreen 145-Watt Power Bank

Best Power Bank Deal

UGreen 145W Power Bank Laptop Charger for $85 ($65 off)—Clip the Coupon

A 25,000-mAh portable charger that’s surprisingly compact is a rarity, and this one also packs two USB-C ports, one USB-A, and the ability to draw 145 watts while charging. That means one USB-C port can dish out 100 watts, enough to fast-charge a laptop. There’s also a nice LED to show how much juice is left in the tank. Clip the coupon on the page for additional savings.

Home Theater

TCL Q6 55-Inch QLED TV

Best TV Deal

TCL Q6 55-Inch QLED TV for $348 ($50 off)

This is our top TV recommendation for most people. It’s not fancy, but this mid-tier TCL model (7/10, WIRED Recommends) packs quantum dot technology, support for every high dynamic range (HDR) format for stunning colors, and a Google TV interface. There’s a game mode too, which can dish out 120 frames per second at 1080p. This is the best price we’ve tracked on this set. You can find more TV deals here.


Sonos Arc Wireless Soundbar

Photograph: Sonos

Best Soundbar Deal

Sonos Arc Wireless Soundbar for $719 ($180 off)

The Sonos Arc (9/10, WIRED Recommends) is our favorite soundbar for big home theaters. It comes equipped with three tweeters and eight mid-woofers to deliver deep bass, along with full Dolby Atmos support that can bounce sound off walls and ceilings in a way that mimics a surround-sound setup. This soundbar was on sale for the same price during Black Friday last year, but it’s the lowest price we’ve tracked. We’ve rounded up other great Sonos deals here, and other soundbar deals here if you’re eyeing other brands.


Chromecast With Google TV 4K Streaming Device

Best Streaming Deal

Chromecast With Google TV 4K Streaming Device for $38 ($11 off)

This Chromecast (8/10, WIRED recommends) is a great streaming device. It comes complete with a remote (finally) and Google TV built-in. The slick interface is easy to navigate, but you still have the option to cast from your phone if you’d like. With Google Assistant on board, you can also use your voice to search for content, ask questions, and control your smart home devices.

Sony WH-1000XM5 Wireless Headphones

Best Headphone Deal

Sony WH-1000XM5 Wireless Headphones for $328 ($70 off)

As Sony’s priciest wireless headphones, the WH-1000XM5 (9/10, WIRED Recommends) had a lot to live up to following the remarkably popular WH-1000XM4. Luckily, they deliver the goods. These headphones deliver absorbing and energetic sound quality, upgraded noise canceling, a more refined sound signature, and a 30-hour battery life. Check out our other headphone deals here.


Apple AirPods Pro (2nd Gen, USB-C, 2023)

Photograph: Apple

Best Wireless Earbuds Deal

Apple AirPods Pro (2nd Gen, USB-C, 2023) for $190 ($10 off)

Apple recently launched these AirPods (9/10, WIRED Recommends) back in September, and they’re already on sale. They’re identical to the old pair on the outside but pack some internal upgrades. In addition to slightly improved sound, there’s also a new Conversation Awareness mode (that turns the music down and boosts Transparency mode so you can hear someone talking to you). They’ve dipped to this price a few times over the past two months, but this is still a great deal for such new earbuds. It’s worth noting the Google Pixel Buds A-Series, our favorite earbuds, are also on sale for $59 ($40 off). You can find more wireless earbud deals here.


HyperX Cloud Alpha Wireless Gaming Headset

Photograph: HyperX

Best Wireless Gaming Headset Deal

HyperX Cloud Alpha Wireless Gaming Headset for $120 ($50 off)

Almost nothing on our site has garnered as high praise as the HyperX Cloud Alpha Wireless Headset (10/10, WIRED Recommends). They’re comfortable, sound fantastic, and have insane battery life (300 hours!). This deal is $30 lower than we saw on Amazon Prime Day, making it the new lowest price we’ve ever seen. Plus, you can get a free copy of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare III (as long as supplies last). There are instructions on how to redeem it here.


Sonos Era 100 Speaker

Photograph: Sonos

Best Smart Speaker Deal

Sonos Era 100 Smart Speaker for $199 ($50 off)

The Era 100 (9/10, WIRED Recommends) holds the title of Best Overall Sonos Speaker in our Best Smart Speakers guide. It has large woofers and angled tweeters for real stereo sound, punchy bass, and a crisp definition. With a fast processor, the speaker also receives software updates for longer. It has a volume slider, a play-pause button (so you don’t have to take your phone out to control it), a USB-C input, and a switch on the back to manually disable the mic. It comes with support for Alexa and AirPlay 2, so it’s easy to integrate with any smart home system. It doesn’t, however, work with Google Assistant.


Urban Ears Boom 3 Bluetooth Speaker

Best Bluetooth Speaker Deal

Urban Ears Boom 3 Bluetooth Speaker for $100 ($20 off)

The Boom 3 is a convenient and fun Bluetooth speaker, with multiple fun colors to choose from. At just over 7 inches tall, it puts out some of the most pleasant, balanced sound for its size, while still being loud enough for an indoor dance party. The battery lasts 15 hours between charges and it also gives you 100 feet of Bluetooth range. It’s waterproof too, which makes it the perfect speaker for pool parties or while in the shower. The speaker also comes with a two-year warranty, so you don’t have to be too careful with it.

Home Office

Branch Ergonomic Chair

Photograph: Branch

Best Office Chair Deal

Branch Ergonomic Chair for $279 ($50 off)—Use Coupon BFCM

This is our favorite office chair for most people. It’s easy to assemble and there are various little tweaks you can make to achieve the most comfortable fit. The seat can extend out or be pushed all the way; you can push the armrest back and forward, and up and down; and you can lock the recline. There’s adjustable lumbar support too. Fair warning for pet owners though: Hair tends to cling to the upholstery, and we’ve noticed the front end of the seat tends to pill quite quickly (though this has also been true of super expensive chairs we’ve tested). Regardless, this is a great deal on an already well-priced office chair.

Best Standing Desk Deal

Branch Duo Standing Desk for $424 ($75 off)

If you can’t tell, there are quite a few products from Branch we like. The Duo is a relatively new entry from the company, and we tested the smaller version. There are some add-ons for this desk and they’re super simple to attach—including the drawer and the cable organizer. It’s quite stable, the up and down movement is smooth, and it feels well-built with an MDF wood top and powder-coated steel legs. It has two height presets. Branch offers a 10-year warranty.


MacBook Air 13-Inch Laptop

Photograph: Apple

Best Laptop Deal

MacBook Air 13-Inch Laptop (M2, 2022) for $929 ($170 off)

The MacBook Air (7/10, WIRED Recommends) has a modern design complete with a MagSafe connector, meaning the laptop won’t fly off if you accidentally trip on the cable. Equipped with an M2 chip, it delivers plenty of power for everyday tasks, solid battery life, and a 1080p webcam. It’s dipped lower to $899 in the past, but we still think this is a good deal. It’s worth noting that Apple is rumored to be launching an M3-powered version of the 13-inch and 15-inch MacBook Air next year, but this is still an excellent option. If you want a bigger display, the 15-inch MacBook Air is also on sale for $1,049 ($250 off).


Razer Huntsman Mini

Best Tiny Keyboard Deal

Razer Huntsman Mini Mechanical Keyboard for $70 ($30 off)

We love mini keyboards, particularly because they take up less space and cut out all the keys you might not use. The Huntsman Mini is one of our top picks in our Best Keyboards guide. It offers customizable key cap options and has a minimalist design.


Alienware AW3423DW Curved Gaming Monitor

Photograph: Dell

Best Monitor Deal

Alienware AW3423DW 34-Inch Curved Gaming Monitor for $800 ($200 off)

This OLED gaming monitor is expensive, and it rarely goes on sale. The Alienware AW3423DW (9/10, WIRED Recommends) is sublime. It’s our favorite luxury gaming pick in our Best Monitors guide. The image quality and colors are top-notch, and the responsive, immersive screen makes for a fantastic gaming experience. If you don’t want to spend this much, the BenQ PD2705Q 27-inch 2K Monitor (our favorite for creative professionals) is also on sale for $350 ($50 off).

Diletta Mio Espresso Machine

Best Espresso Machine Deal

Diletta Mio Espresso Machine for $1,099 ($299 off)

The Diletta Mio holds the title of best overall in our Best Espresso Machines guide. It’s stylish, compact, and built to last. It’s also a joy to use, with straightforward controls that include one button for power, one button for brewing, one button for steaming, and a switch to toggle between brew-ready and stream-ready modes. WIRED reviewer Jaina Grey says it also brews circles around the competition. This is the lowest price we’ve tracked so far. We’ve rounded up more coffee and espresso machine deals here.


Trade Coffee

Best Coffee Subscription Deal

Trade Coffee: Up to 30 Percent Off Gifts

Out of all the coffee subscriptions we’ve tried, Trade makes our favorite. Rather than roasting its own beans, the company partners with roasters to bring you beans from boutique roasters around the U.S. With over 400 possibilities to choose from, the selection includes single-origin options, blends, and decaf. Right now gift subscriptions and gift boxes are on sale at up to 30 percent off.


KitchenAid 5.5 Quart Bowl-Lift Stand Mixer

Best Kitchen Appliance Deal

KitchenAid 5.5 Quart Bowl-Lift Stand Mixer for $250 ($160 off)

If you’ve been dreaming of your very own KitchenAid, this deal is your sign to finally make the purchase. The 5.5-quart bowl is great for making large batches of cookies, kneading a few pounds of bread, and even mashing potatoes.


Roborock Q5 Pro+

Best Robot Vacuum Deal

Roborock Q5 Pro+ Robot Vacuum for $480 ($220 off)

This is our top pick for the Best Robot Vacuum. It’s super fast and thorough. It only rarely gets stuck and uses lidar, not cameras, to navigate through your home. It also has multi-map capability for multi-story houses and mop functionality.


Black+Decker PowerSeries Extreme Max Cordless Vacuum

Photograph: Black+Decker

Best Cordless Vacuum Deal

Black+Decker PowerSeries Extreme Max Cordless Vacuum for $159 ($41 off)

This is our top cordless vacuum recommendation. It has reliable suction power, even on corrugated surfaces, and it also stands on its own—a surprisingly rare feature for cordless vacs. The Extreme Max converts to a hand vac in a few moments and comes with three attachments. Read more about it in our dedicated cordless vacuum buying guide.


Best Mattress Deal

Helix Sleep Midnight Luxe Hybrid Mattress for $1,780 ($594 off)—Use Code CYBER25

Enter code CYBER25 at checkout to get this discount on our favorite mattress, plus a mattress protector, sheet set, and two pillows. We typically see this bed discounted to $1,899 on a normal day, and we haven’t seen it get lower than this yet. The medium-firm feel is relaxing for all sleeping positions, but our tester loved it for stomach sleeping. We tried the Midnight Luxe, but there are a few other versions in the Luxe family for different firmness levels and sleeping positions.


Levoit Core 300S

Best Air Purifier Deal

Levoit Core 300S (Wi-Fi Enabled) for $127 ($23 off)

This is our favorite smart air purifier. With the ability to cycle the air five times per hour in spaces up to 219 square feet, it’s great for living rooms, bedrooms, and kitchens. It packs a prefilter, an activated carbon filter, and an H13 True HEPA filter that captures 99.99 percent of bacteria and mold. On top are touch controls and an indicator light, but you can also use the VeSync companion app to check the air quality indoors and toy with the settings. It comes with support for Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa too.

Best Ebike Deal

Specialized Turbo Tero 3.0 for $2,000 ($1,250 off)

Want a Specialized bike for less than $3,500? This is it. Like most bikes, the Turbo Tero (8/10, WIRED Recommends) comes in different versions with slightly different specs. This is the entry-level version that doesn’t have quite all the trimmings. It doesn’t come mullet-style, nor does it have the entire commuter package with fenders, a rack, and a kickstand. But honestly, you might not need all those things or want to install them yourself—you probably don’t need fenders if you’re planning on spending most of your time on weekend trails, for example. We’ve rounded up more of Specialized deals here, plus you can find other ebike deals here.


GoPro Hero 12

Best Action Camera Deal

GoPro Hero 12 Action Camera Bundle for $350 ($100 off)

If you want a new action camera to record your outdoor adventures, this is our top suggestion in our Best Action Cameras guide. The GoPro Hero 12 (8/10, WIRED Recommends), which recently launched in September, packs better battery life and the ability to shoot HDR video in 5.3K resolution. With this bundle, you’ll also get two batteries and a mini tripod. If you don’t need the latest and greatest, you can grab the GoPro Hero 11 for $299 ($50 off).


Fitbit Charge 6

Photograph: Fitbit

Best Fitness Tracker Deal

Fitbit Charge 6 for $100 ($60 off)

The Fitbit Charge 6 (7/10, WIRED Recommends) is the best all-around fitness tracker in our guide. It’s affordable, attractive, accessible, and easy to use—making it a great option for those who don’t participate in ultra-marathons or semipro powerlifting. In addition to the standard health and fitness tracking features, you can also check your skin temperature and take ECGs. You’ll also have access to Google’s first-party apps like Google Maps and Google Wallet. Battery life is great too, lasting us well over a week.


MSR Elixir 3-Season Tent

Photograph: MSR

Best Tent Deal

MSR Elixir 3-Season Tent (4-Person) for $343 ($148 off)

We love this lightweight family backpacking tent. It isn’t quite as expensive as comparable options, and it’s not much heavier. Although it does have plenty of interior space, three adults will be more comfortable than four. The mesh at the top also provides great ventilation on warm summer nights and the crossover pole helps it stand up well in the wind. The one-person, two-person, and three-person sizes are on sale as well.


Mountainsmith Tour 9L Lumbar Pack

Photograph: Mountainsmith

Best All-Day Pack Deal

Mountainsmith Tour 9L Lumbar Pack for $67 ($22 off)

The Tour is loaded with pockets, which gives you far more stash spaces than would seem possible in a pack this size. We had no trouble fitting a change of clothes and a couple of meals in here, along with the rest of the gear you’d need for a full day on the trail or on a bike. The 13-liter version is also on sale for $75 ($25 off).


Away The Bigger Carry-On

Best Luggage Deal

Away The Bigger Carry-On for $236 ($59 off)

We’re fans of Away luggage—they’re our top recommendation if you’re looking for a hard-shell bag. WIRED reviews editor Julian Chokkattu has been using The Bigger Carry-On for most trips over the past four years—it’s stylish, roomy, and glides on airport floors with no trouble. It still looks pretty darn spiffy too.


Rothy’s Driving Loafer

Photograph: Rothy’s

Best Shoe Deal

Rothy’s Driving Loafer for $130 ($59 off)

We like several shoes from Rothy’s—all of which are made from recycled plastic bottles and are machine washable. Right now, its entire catalog is 30 percent off. WIRED reviews editor Julian Chokkattu tried the Driving Loafer and the Monty (also discounted to $130) and says they’re attractive and comfortable, without any break-in time required. We like the women’s flats too, which are currently on sale for $90 ($39 off). When Rothy’s shoes are worn out, you can recycle them back to the company and get a discount toward another pair.
