Black Friday will be here before you know it, and the deals are just getting better. Amazon's Happy HoliDeals page is a cornucopia of Amazon-branded products with a variety of stuff and accessories all for sale before the big day. However, you may want to take a minute to buy an Echo smart speaker, Fire tablet and Kindle e-reader. The online store giant released its entirety with Amazon Black Friday deals, competing with what we saw on Prime Day. Meanwhile, the recently releasedreceived a $ 235 price drop (although they are currently available on backorder). It's not a big drop in prices, but these were just released in early November.

As expected, some of the best early discounts on Amazon devices (although some of the items below will be even cheaper in a few weeks, as noted above). But I found a few notable non-Amazon deals too, so check those out as well.

AirPods Pro was released in early November and is available for a cheaper price. Commonly priced at $ 250, the small discount for noise-canceling earbuds is great for those who need to upgrade their previous AirPods or those who want to dive into a truly wireless audio experience.

It's not even released yet, but Amazon just pulled out its first discount on Echo Show 8. It's basically a larger version of the superpopular Echo Show 5 (currently on sale for $ 80, FYI), and therefore better suited in places like the kitchen, where the 8-inch screen makes it easier to watch cooking videos and the like.

Actually, this app-driven garage door controller originally sold for $ 130, so in a way you save $ 100. It has regularly crept into price, but this is the lowest I've seen it. It is compatible with most garage doors and its utility cannot be overstated. By far the best $ 30 you can spend on your house right now.

Sure, there's an avalanche of competition out there, with more noise-canceling headphones than you can silently shake a stick at. But Bose always seems to lead the pack with superb comfort, noise cancellation and overall sound quality. Right now you can get the Bose QuietComfort 35 II Wireless Bluetooth Headphones for $ 70 off at Amazon. If you don't mind getting a dedicated Google Assistant button, you can still find otherwise identical, refurbished copies of the original Bose QuietComfort 35 headphones at Amazon as well. That said, the price has fluctuated a bit – we saw the QuietComfort 35 II for as low as $ 235 recently, so there may still be some surprises between now and Black Friday. But you certainly shouldn't pay more than $ 279 if you're in the market between now and the new year.

There are actually some savings to be made on several Insignia models, including 32 and 39 inches. But if you just need something small for the den, bedroom, or the like, it's hard to beat a full-fledged four-screen TV for $ 100. , Sony and now Apple AirPods Pro, active noise canceling headphones are furious. And now we see an old favorite from Sennheiser which is currently only $ 80 at Amazon – down from $ 200 . We considered the nearly identical Sennheiser HD 4.50 BTNC two years ago, and found it to be a formidable Bose competitor at that price of $ 200. That model is down to $ 108 on Amazon, but this model – HD 4.50 SE – has Literally the same specifications, except for some cosmetic color differences.
While Sony's WH-1000XM3 noise-canceling headphones popped up to the party of $ 228 very briefly last week, we can't be certain that it wasn't just a price error instead of a conscious effort to undermine Bose. Nevertheless, it is now priced at $ 278, and we would be surprised if it went any lower before the holidays. There is little doubt that these excellent-sounding headphones are the ones that are hitting right now, which is good, since they are priced roughly like the chief competitor Bose QuietComfort 35 II .

Samsung Galaxy phone owners in need of a new watch can get their hands on a discounted Gear S3 Frontier smart watch. It also works well with other Android phones and can even connect to an iPhone. The full clock is regularly over $ 200, so it's a deal to see it sink below that mark.
