A nice drop for the newest Paperwhite, which hasn’t tended to see pricing below $90 even on sale.
The Kindle Paperwhite is the top pick in our guide to the best ebook readers. Senior Staff Writer Nick Guy wrote, “The Kindle Paperwhite’s great display, even lighting, waterproofing, and affordable price, coupled with Amazon’s vast collection of reading material, make it the best device dedicated to reading.”
$50 is as low as we typically see this ultra-affordable tablet, which is good for browsing and streaming media.
The Amazon Fire HD 8 Tablet is the budget pick in our guide to the best Android tablets. Ryan Whitwam wrote, “Though the Fire HD 8 has a lower-resolution screen than the MediaPad and is more limited, it’s a great cheap tablet for reading or watching video, especially for content from Amazon’s store.”
This deal is the best price we’ve seen, lower than the typical standalone price for this video doorbell
The Ring Doorbell is the budget smart doorbell camera pick in our guide to the best smart doorbell cameras. This bundle also comes with an Amazon Echo. Staff Writer Rachel Cericola, Editor Jon Chase, and writer Stacy Higginsbotham wrote, “You get all the basic features, powered by battery or wire and at a budget price, but lower-quality video and audio.”
Usually $250, this recommended soundbar hits $200 a few times a year during deal holidays.
The Polk Command smart soundbar is an Also Great pick in our guide to the best soundbar. Wirecutter Editor Adrienne Maxwell wrote, “The Polk Command Bar is a well-performing, full-featured soundbar that also offers built-in Alexa support.”
This is a good deal for a repairable robot vacuum with Wi-Fi capabilities.
The iRobot Roomba 690 is an Also Great pick in our guide to robot vacuums. Senior Editor Liam McCabe wrote, “It’s louder and more expensive than Eufy bots but the Roomba 690 adds an invisible boundary marker, app and voice-assistant controls, and a repairable design that should help it last longer.”
Down to $40 in all available colors, this is a rare drop. We haven’t seen deals on the Waterpik Aquarius since Cyber Monday last year, so if you’re looking to start water flossing, this deal is a great opportunity.
The Waterpik Aquarius is the top pick in our guide to the best water flossers. Shannon Palus wrote, “It made our mouths feel the cleanest, seems durable, and gives you the most flexibility to adjust the stream of water so that it feels just right.”
This is a new low on a variant of our top electric pressure cooker. The only reason we don’t typically recommend this model is that it’s usually a bit more expensive than our top pick, so now is a great time to pick it up.
The Instant Pot IP-DUO Plus60 is a variant of the top pick in our guide to the best electric pressure cookers. Senior Staff Writer Lesley Stockton wrote, “The Instant Pot Duo Plus has the same cooking capacity and functionality as the Duo 6-Quart but with a few new bells and whistles.”
$125 is a new low price in the all white finish. That’s a significant discount considering the $180 street price and beats the regular deal price of $144 by a decent margin. The white and stainless steel finish is also nicely discounted to $139, that’s a new low for that option.
The ChefSteps Joule is our runner-up sous vide pick. Editor Tim Barribeau and Senior Staff Writer Nick Guy wrote, “This cooker is one of the smallest and most powerful we tested, and it works with less water, but it lacks physical controls.”
