Things are moving fast at the beginning of Black Friday. You may have seen Amazon's Happy HoliDeals page, which features an Amazon gearbox bite mixed between a smelly board of various gadgets and accessories. But before you buy an Amazon brand on it – smart Echo speakers, Fire tablets, Kindle e-readers and so on – be aware: The company has just revealed a full list of deals for Amazon Black Friday devices, many of which rival what we saw during this year's premiere. In the meantime, we continue to see new price reductions for non-Amazon items, such as the– a nice $ 350 surcharge for what can be disputes the best active noise reduction headphones out there.
If you are planning to purchase one of the aforementioned Amazon devices, you must first register for TopCashback; the money back service offers an unprecedented 10% discount on Amazon devices. And yes, you think you are already a pro at saving money on Black Friday sales, but I recently discovered a few tricks you may not know about. So see my tips on.
Here is a list of our favorite gears for sale on Amazon right now, followed by deals with Amazon devices starting November 22.
Amazon Black Friday Deals Available Now
As expected, some of the best early discounts are on Amazon devices (though some of the items below will be even cheaper in a few weeks as it was noted above). But I also found some great deals other than Amazon, so check them out.
Not yet released, but Amazon just announced its first rebate on Echo Show 8. Basically, it's a larger version of the super-popular Echo Show 5 (currently retails for $ 80, FYI) and is therefore better suited to places like the kitchen, where an 8-inch screen makes it easy to watch cooking videos and the like.

In fact, this garage door-controlled controller originally retails for $ 130, so you somehow save $ 100. It is constantly dropping in price, but it's the lowest I've seen. It is compatible with most garage doors and its utility cannot be overstated. Perhaps the best $ 30 you can spend on your house right now.

Do you have saliva to spare? Send a little to 23andMe and get back over 125 DNA based reports on your health, wellness, lineage and the like. This is the lowest price we have seen on this kit, which usually costs $ 199.
Of course, there's an avalanche of competition, with more noise canceling headphones than you can silently shake a wand at. But Bose always seems to be leading the pack with superb comfort, noise cancellation and overall sound quality. You can now get the Bose QuietComfort 35 II Wireless Bluetooth Headset for $ 70 on Amazon. If you're not interested in getting a dedicated Google Assistant button, you can still find identical, updated copies of the original Bose QuietComfort 35 headset on Amazon. That said, the price fluctuates a bit – we saw the QuietComfort 35 II for only $ 235 recently, so there may still be some surprises between now and Black Friday. But you certainly don't have to pay more than $ 279 if you're in the market between now and the New Year.

There are actually savings to be had on several Insignia models, including 32- and 39-inch ones. But if you just need a little something for the day, the bedroom, or the like, it's hard to beat a full-featured fire television for $ 100.

Between Bose, Sony and now Apple AirPods Pro, active noise canceling headsets are the rage. And now we see an old favorite from Sennheiser, which is currently only $ 80 on Amazon – a discount of $ 200 . We reviewed the almost identical Sennheiser HD 4.50 BTNC two years ago and found it to be a great competitor to Bose at that price of $ 200. This model goes down to $ 108 on Amazon, but this model – the HD 4.50 SE – has literally the same features, with the exception of some cosmetic color differences.
While Sony's WH-1000XM3 noise canceling headphones briefly popped up at $ 228 last week, we can't be sure it's not just a pricing mistake, not a deliberate effort to undercut Bose. Nevertheless, it is now priced at $ 278 and we would be surprised if it goes lower before the holidays. There is little doubt that these great sounding headsets are the ones to beat right now, which is great, as they are priced about the same as the main competitor Bose QuietComfort 35 II .
