TOSHIBA 50" 4K SMART TV
Sale Price: $300 | Buy it
Reg. Price: $400 ($100 savings)
There is never a shortage of TV deals for Cyber Monday, but many are for no-name brands and smaller screens. The 50-inch Toshiba 50LF621U19 is available at a healthy 25 percent discount. This model is an Amazon exclusive, with the Fire media browser (the same ecosystem that's on the Fire TV Stick and Cube) built in. Most owners say it's a pretty good deal for an ultra-HD 4K TV.
Sale Price: $24 | Buy it
Reg. Price: $50 ($26 savings)
Amazon has been heavily promoting its entire line of Echo digital home assistants since before Black Friday. This deal is just over half off the regular price for the entry-level smart speaker, which allows you to tap into the world of Alexa. Most owners are fairly satisfied with the Echo Dot, according to reviews. They say its smooth form, swaddled in mesh fabric, doesn't look as out of place on an end table or a kitchen shelf as the puck-like previous model did. It can't match the sound quality of more substantial Alexa devices, but for a smaller room, it's perfect.
