As expected, Amazon is coming through in a major way for Black Friday. Your favorite one-stop online shop has reduced prices on some of its all-time bestselling, top-rated products — we’re talking TCL TVs, Apple Air Pods and Fire HD tablets with more than 100,000 stellar reviews. The savings are up to 50 percent on all these name-brand goodies.

The humongousness of Amazon means, of course, that perusing its killer deals can be overwhelming, so we zeroed on the 10 deals to drop everything for. All you have to do is point, click and wait for the dopamine hit of that box being delivered to your doorstep. When it comes to Black Friday sales, it just doesn’t get any better than this.

Amazon will give you free shipping too. But if you have Amazon Prime, you’ll get so much more — from access to new movies and TV shows, discounts at Whole Foods, exclusive sales and two-day shipping on many, many items. Not yet a member? No problem. You can sign up for your free 30-day trial here.

When beautiful, big TVs go on sale, we’re all ears (and eyes). There’s just nothing like watching your favorite movies and series on a large screen — we’re talking a perfect 55 inches, and we found a treasure. Right now, you can score this TCL 55-inch Class 4-Series 4K Smart TV for just $380 at Amazon — that’s a 37 percent discount.

This 4K TV has a gigantic 55-inch LED 4K display with Ultra HD resolution. There’s built-in Roku, so you’ll have access to more than 500,000 TV eps and movies from all the heavy hitters: Netflix, HBO Max, Disney+, Prime Video. And, of course, there are ports aplenty for connecting a Blu-ray player, video game console and soundbar for deeper and richer audio.

“I am not super tech savvy by any stretch, but I was able to connect all the dots and the result is a fabulous TV, cable, streaming experience,” confirmed one shopper.

If you’ve been waiting for a sale on AirPods, well, wait no more. Right now they're sitting pretty at just $170 at Amazon — that’s 80 bucks off! They're the audio accessory you — and the folks on your holiday shopping list — need, and you'll never get them at a better price.

Unlike previous versions of the iconic buds, Apple AirPods Pro feature active noise canceling to block out nearly all ambient and background chatter. "The sound quality is great, the noise canceling is good as well," wrote a five-star reviewer. "They also pair and turn on automatically when you open the case."

Whereas previous AirPod iterations subscribed to a one-size-fits-all approach, these state-of-the-art Pros provide a special 'Ear Tip Fit Test' so you can learn which size is best for you and your unique ear shape. Speaking of a nice fit: The new earbuds offer a seamless wireless syncing experience with just about any Apple device — including iPhone, iPad, MacBook Air, iMac and more.

When you're craving peace and quiet and your partner wants to jam out, you actually both need the exact the same thing: noise-canceling headphones! Happily, Amazon just slashed prices on these Sony Noise Cancelling Headphones. You can score a pair for just $78 (was $180). That’s 57 percent off, which is the cheapest price we've seen on these premium headphones.

The Sony Noise Cancelling Headphones, which come in black and silver, are among the most popular noise-cancelling headphones available. The top-sellers boast world-class noise-cancellation technology that expertly diffuses sounds around you. Their long battery life and comfortable ear cups make listening a pleasure.

One cheeky fan wrote: “These headphones are amazing — I should have bought them years ago! I've been working from home for six months now with my boyfriend, who insists on taking every phone call on speaker ... I was one Zoom call away from a breakup or a psychotic break, or both. These headphones may have just saved our relationship (and potentially his life) — I can almost stand being in the same room with him again! If these puppies can block out Zoom calls on full volume, just imagine what else they can do.”

Using a soundbar can boost a TV’s audio quality exponentially for a surprisingly low investment. This Samsung soundbar is proof positive of that. New for 2021, it includes the immersive Dolby Atmos, a surround sound technology that allows sound to be interpreted in 3D. The result is an atmosphere of audio.

This breakthrough in sound technology was announced by Samsung very recently, so as far as gifting goes, a soundbar like this is your best bet at impressing the audiophile or early adopter on your list. “It produces a clear, enveloping, wide and very detailed sound,” as one fan put it.

It’s also a great chance to save 41 percent for Black Friday.

With the strongest suction of any iRobot (10 times the power of the 600 series), this super-smart robot cleans brilliantly, then empties itself at its charging station. Just program it to do its thing on a regular schedule. It learns your house with a mapping system and takes care of the whole space.

Bonus: If you spill something and need to run out, you can just tap an app (or use Alexa) to tell your iRobot where to clean. This robovac is the closest thing to The Jetsons that we’ve seen yet. And at $200 off for Black Friday, it should be yours.

Here’s what a happy shopper has to say: “I didn't realize how long it took to vacuum or how annoying it was until I let [my iRobot Roomba] run for hours without my having to do anything. It gets under most of my couches and tables and can sense stairs before it falls down. The suction is great, and it even grabs the kitty litter that spreads around my basement. I'm already saving so much time using this Roomba.”

If you have an older TV or just don’t like the video-streaming settings that came with your set, maybe it's time to do something about it. And maybe we know exactly what that thing should be: heading over to Amazon and scoring the Fire TV Stick Lite for just $20, or 50 percent off.

The Fire TV Stick couldn’t be easier to use. Simply plug it into one of your TV’s HDMI ports and it’ll search for your home’s Wi-Fi network automatically and wait for you to log in. Once synced, you’ll have access to hundreds of streaming apps and channels, including Netflix, Hulu, YouTube, Disney+, Prime Video, Peacock, HBO Max, Starz and Showtime. You can control it all via an Alexa Voice Remote, too.

“I found the Fire Stick on Amazon by accident and wonder why I didn't know about it before,” wrote a happy shopper. “I never knew there was a device so cheap and easy to use with everything I need. I have a DSL connection and programs streams perfectly. I love the simple remote with just the necessary control features in a nutshell. The platforms interface is pretty streamlined and easy to navigate, even with so many selections.”

If you're new to tablets, let us enlighten you. They're basically a one-stop-shop for entertainment. These little guys let you watch flicks, play games, read books, attend Zoom meetings and more. Want one of the best tablets around? Meet the Amazon Fire HD 8 — a stellar model that's 50 percent off at Amazon for Black Friday.

It sports a sleek new look and up to 30 percent faster speeds than previous models. Everything's zippier — the processor, the charging (there's now a USB-C port) and 12 hours of battery life a pop — two more than the last version.

“This tablet is a great blend of economy and function. If you are new to tablets, or just a casual user, this might be the ideal option for you,” wrote a fan. “Getting online, listening to music, checking your social media accounts, watching movies...it does pretty much what most of us use tablets for anyways but at one tenth the cost of an iPad.”

If you have a Samsung Galaxy (or any Android phone, for that matter), you can get your very own wireless earbuds that work just as well — or better.

For Black Friday, Samsung Galaxy Buds Plus are on sale for $79, or 47 percent off, at Amazon. That’s the all-time lowest price on these super popular earbuds. How popular? Over 62,000 reviewers have given them five-star raves. (FYI: This deal is for the classic black variety, pictured above.)

These Samsung Galaxy Buds Plus offer crisp sound and punchy bass for up to 11 hours per charge (plus get an additional 11 hours with the included wireless charging case). That's nearly a full day of use! They’re also water- and sweat-resistant, so you can wear them during a workout without skipping a beat.

“iPhone user approves these headphones and in my opinion wayyyy better than the standard AirPods . Prettier, more discrete, more comfortable less expensive, newer technology,” wrote a five-star reviewer.

Here are just a few things that are probably in your car right now but shouldn’t be: dirt, Dorito dust, dog hair, leaves, chips, tiny pieces of paper, pretzel remnants, an errant French fry from your last pit stop. But take heart: For just $23 (down from $45), you can suck all that stuff up and be left with a nice, clean interior. Your car will feel as fresh as when you first got it!

For Black Friday, the Thisworx car vacuum cleaner is 60 percent off with an on-page coupon!

Cordless vacs can be convenient, but they don’t always have the power to get the job done. This thing has a 106-watt motor and a 16-foot cord for getting in between seat cushions and that no-man’s-land down the sides. And a stiff brush lets you go crazy on stubborn messes. Over 22,000 Amazon shoppers gave it a perfect five-star rating.

“This thing is awesome! I only a 2018 Dodge Durango that sadly does not have leather seats. I own three dogs and it is just a nightmare pulling out my extension cord to vacuum my truck. I can now just plug this little guy into my 12v car outlet and I’m good to go!” wrote a satisfied customer. “The power in this vacuum is as good as it’s going to get for a car vacuum, so if you want extreme suction — buy a shop vac.”

Porch pirates are a real thing, so protect your Black Friday investments and all future online purchases with this popular home security system by Ring.

And you control it all on your smartphone using the Ring app.

“The system is VERY easy to install,” wrote a five-star reviewer. “Everything worked as it should out of the box. The door sensors are a little larger than most, but they have some give on spacing and didn't have any problems.”
