Sony's top-of-the-line wireless earbuds are also discounted at Amazon right now. They have perhaps the best active noise cancelling among earbuds, mostly challenged by the AirPods
Pro. But if you're an Android user, you're more likely to go for these. The biggest downside of these is the size, they're quite bulky for earbuds and not everyone might feel comfortable walking around with them in their ears. Other than that, they'll make for a great audio companion.

Save 38% or more on Razer keyboard, mouse or headset
If you were waiting for Black Friday to upgrade your PC peripherals, you made a good choice. Razer has big discounts on three products that are basically essential for a good gaming experience.
We start with the Razer BlackWidow Elite Mechanical Gaming Keyboard. Mechanical keyboards, especially from brand name companies, tend to be expensive, but the BlackWidow is now down by 50% on Amazon. Of course, the keyboard has full RGB lighting that you can customize as you see fit. The discount is only for the green mechanical switches, but those seem to be the most popular choice anyway.
You can't be rocking a Razer keyboard without also using a Razer mouse. Well, obviously you can, but it just doesn't feel right. Anyway, the price of Razer's Viper mouse is also slashed by 50%. The mouse has a 16,000dpi sensor, ambidextrous design, RGB lighting and plenty of programmable buttons so you can do more with just your right hand.
And finally, we have the Razer Kraken gaming headset. It's discounted by "only" 38% which is still a pretty good deal. You get nice big over-the-ear cups with soft padding that support 7.1
channel surround sound for full immersion, a retractable mic and lightweight frame. Not much more that you can want from a headset. Besides RGB, that is, which this Razer product lacks but we're sure you can live without.
Save $80 on eufy by Anker Robot Vacuum Cleaner
Yes, among many other things, Anker also makes robot vacuum cleaners. And like the rest of the Anker products, it's affordable without compromising on quality. And this deal makes it even cheaper, lowering the price by 35%.

Now that's a serious camera. From photography enthusiasts to professionals, the EOS 6D Mark II is a tool that fits many needs. It has a 26.2 Megapixel full frame CMOS sensor tucked within a relatively compact body with a 3-inch display for convenient menu use and shot framing. Right now, Amazon has it down by 28% but only for the body. If you don't have suitable lenses already, you'll have to spend a bit more before you start shooting.
Save $70 on Wireless Security Outdoor Camera
Jumping to a whole other type of camera. Having security cameras is always a good idea but not everyone is willing to drill and route cables for the benefit of it. This camera solves this issue by having a solar panel and a battery to keep it going at night. The video signal can be either transmitted through Wi-Fi or recorded onto a on-board SD card. Sure, it's not exactly discrete, but that's a sacrifice you'll have to make for the extra convenience.
Save 32% on Ring A19 Smart LED Bulb, 2-pack

The problem is they can be expensive, but with this discount, the price is more bearable. The down side is that these aren't RGB, so not much room for mood lighting, but you can still adjust the brightness.
Save $250 on Samsung Galaxy Book S
If you're looking for something significantly cheaper than the Surface Pro X, Samsung's Galaxy Book S is an enticing offer.

The ZenBook Duo is a pretty unique laptop. It has not one, but two displays, the second one positioned above the keyboard.

The laptop is powered by Intel's Core i7 10510U processor paired with 8GB of RAM and 512GB of NVME storage. The keyboard and trackpad layout is a bit unusual but if you can make good use of the second display, that's a sacrifice worth making.
Save 25% on Soundance Laptop Stand
If you're using your laptop as a desktop workstation more often than not, a stand like this one is a great addition to your setup. Regardless if you're using an external monitor or not, having the laptop elevated has multiple advantages. First, it's more ergonomic, assuming you have a separate keyboard. Second, it allows your laptop to cool itself better. Third, it saves space on the desk, since you can store things under the laptop. And fourth, it protects your laptop from accidental spills of water, coffee or other beverages you might be consuming or storing around it. The build of this stand is very sturdy and it can hold pretty much any laptop, no matter the size.
Save 56% on OLEBR 3-in-1 Charging Stand
Another stand, this one meant to charge three of your Apple devices at once. You can place an iPhone, an Apple Watch
and AirPods Pro charging case on this stand and have them all charge in an organized environment. There are no chargers included in this stand, so you'll have to route the ones you have already. The only benefit is the improved aesthetics of your desk or night stand. Still, the price of this stand isn't exactly high and now it's even lower than usual thanks to this early Black Friday deal.
What Black Friday deals to expect on Amazon
While before online retailers were separating themselves from physical stores by offering discounts on Cyber Monday, the Monday after Black Friday, now, they're pretty much double-dipping, with deals available on both days and, of course, in between and before that as well. Basically, it's a whole savings season.
This year shouldn't be much different than last year (at least in that regard), with major discounts on some of the most popular consumer electronics. Such as:
The pricier the item, the bigger discount you can expect. Common non-Black Friday discounts are usually around 20%, so anything that reaches 50% or more is a great deal. Keep in mind that some third-party sellers on Amazon might hike the prices in advance so that the Black Friday deals look better than what they actually are.
If you already have plans for specific purchases, you can bookmark the items and note the prices, perhaps even fill out a spreadsheet with all the info in one spot. This way, you'll be able to act fast and have a good idea if the deals are really worth it. That will also help with your impulse control if you feel like you might buy something you don't really need or want.
Keep an eye out for Lightning Deals. Those usually offer great discounts but only last a few hours or until the stock runs out.
As a reminder, Black Friday this year falls on November 27, so if you're planning to go on a shopping spree, make sure you're ready by then.
