Cyber Monday 2016 Amazon Watch: Just how good are their deals? tech imagesJust when you got your nerves back in order after a crazy Black Friday, it’s time to steel yourself (luckily from the comfort of your home for the most part) for Cyber Monday, which promises to break all kinds of history this year.

Black Friday is a fast fading memory, and now Cyber Monday is hotting up and determined to give it a run for its money. At the forefront of Cyber Monday is Amazon, which has already announced a significant number of deals, so here is my breakdown of what to buy and what to avoid.

Like last year, we’ve done a huge amount of research, reviewing and just spotting the hottest deals for our readers, and you can check all the articles here as there’s plenty covering every aspect you can think of. It’s our way of giving back to our faithful readers, plus most of the team here love anything tech so digging out the best deals was quite their dream come true. Keep checking the Cyber Monday deals page as they’ll change through the day and week.

Star Buys

As is increasingly common for Amazon, the majority of its best deals are on Amazon products with discounts across the ranges. Not all make the Star Buys category because Amazon actually sells them for less on its dedicated ‘Prime Day’ – when that happens you’ll find them in the Solid Deals section.

Dash Buttons – $0.99 cents (saving $4) and $4.99 credit after your first purchase – Controversial as they don’t let shoppers price hunt before ordering, but this is essentially a $4 credit making it a no brainer for at least one purchase

Fire HD 8 for $59.99 (save $30)

Kindle Voyage for $169.99 (save $30)

Fire Kids Edition tablet for $74.99 (save $25) – was $84.99 last year

Echo Dot for $39.99 (save $10)

Amazon Tap for $89.99 (save $40)

Amazon Fire TV for $74.99 (save $15)

Fire TV Stick with Alexa Voice Remote for $29.99 (save $10)

HP Envy Wireless All-in-One Photo Printer for $49.99 (save $50) – $20 cheaper than Best Buy’s Black Friday sale price

Sony Extra Bass Bluetooth Headphones for $88 (save $111) – beats Best Buy’s Black Friday doorbuster by $1

Solid Deals

As mentioned above, several Amazon own brand products are listed here despite strong discounts because they can be found cheaper on Prime day. Nevertheless, they are still worth close attention:

Amazon Echo for $139.99 (save $40) – $50 off on Prime Day and matches Amazon Black Friday price, but still a good deal

Kindle Paperwhite for $99.99 (save $20) – $30 off on Amazon Prime day

Fire Tablet for $33.33 – recycled Prime Day and Black Friday deal

Kindle for $49.99 (save $30) – as above

Kindle for Kids Bundle for $69.99 (save $30) – recycled from Cyber Monday 2015

Sonos PLAY:1 Compact Wireless Smart Speaker for $149 (save $50.99) – great product, great price and actually available right now

Rif6 Mobile Projector + SoundCube for $245 – projector is usually $299 on its own

Treat With Caution

In typical Amazon fashion, the deals to be wary of are the ones where Amazon has given no information.

Cyber Monday TV tip: always remember to check the specific TV model when retailers release them before making a purchase. Even the best manufacturers have weak models in their line-up that you are better off avoiding while no-name brands can be terrible, so do your research.

50” 1080p LED TV for $145 – no original retail price or brand listed, let alone a specific model number

50” 4K Ultra HD Smart TV for $249.99 – as above. Typically Amazon says ‘Premium brand’ when being vague, but this TV lacks even that

Save up to 30% on select HP laptops – again too general and HP’s own website has laptop deals for up to 50% off

Arlo 5-Camera Security System for $469 (save $20) – a very small saving for an expensive product and one customer only rate at 3/5 stars

Nest Cam Indoor Security Camera for $163.98 – the worst Cyber Monday deal on Amazon. Why? Because right now it is listed on the site for $149.
