While we may not see a bunch of cheap TVs this Black Friday, we are seeing a lot of great streaming stick deals. Roku’s Streaming Stick 4K gives you nearly instant access to your favorite streaming apps, voice control and much more. At this discounted price, you may want to pick up a couple so you have one to use on each TV at home.

Mint Mobile

No one wants to spend a lot for mobile service, right? This deal from Mint Mobile scores you three months of free service when you buy three months, meaning you can get six whole months of service with 4GB of data each month for just $45. There are other plans with more data, should you need it, so be sure to check them all out and make the switch today. Mint works on T-Mobile’s GSM network, so almost all unlocked phones should work with it.


There are a lot of smartwatches and fitness trackers on the market, but most of them make you decide which part of the experience is more important. Garmin does a nice job of balancing the two by providing accurate fitness tracking with key smartwatch features, including music integration with Spotify and other services.

This will be the cheapest price we’ve ever seen on the AirPods Pro, and after watching how quickly the $89 AirPods sold out earlier this month, we don’t anticipate the deal will stick around for too long. Hopefully other retailers will jump in and match Walmart’s pricing here.


If you’re looking for the most affordable Apple Watch that’s actually worth buying this holiday season, it’s the Apple Watch SE. Sure, you can grab the Series 3 for less, but it’s really old and honestly not worth it at this point. Staples will have both the 40 and 44mm options in stock, and we anticipate other retailers joining in on this discount (but not Apple directly).


We won’t see as many really cheap TV deals this year as we have in previous years for a few reasons, but we are starting to see some really large TVs at truly affordable prices. The Onn smart TV runs Roku’s OS, giving you quick access to your favorite streaming services, has a 4K LED panel and much more. We haven’t reviewed this particular model, but Roku is our favorite TV operating system, making this a great price for a huge TV.

It wasn’t that long ago that the Ring Fit Adventure was as hard to get as the PS5 is right now, so to see a Black Friday sale on it is quite impressive. This tracks as the lowest price we’ve seen it go for, so whether you need one for yourself or to give as a gift, you won’t want to miss out on this discount.
