Samsung Qi Certified Fast Charge Wireless Charger


Street Price: $35; Deal Price: $24

Buy Now $35

A welcome discount on a newly released Qi charger, this Black Friday deal is only on this particular color. This charger is a pick in our QI wireless charging guide. We wrote, “Samsung’s Fast Charge Wireless Charging Stand EP-NG930 props your phone up at a 50-degree angle. In our tests, it was not only just as fast as any other charger in the group but also faster than any other iPhone 8 charger we tried.”

Krups GQ502D Waffle Maker


Street Price: $45; Deal Price: $27

Buy Now $45

Our waffle maker pick at the best Black Friday price we’ve seen.

The Krups GQ502D is our pick in our waffle maker guide. We wrote, “This machine makes four thick waffles per batch, so you can easily feed a crowd (or just one or two). The nonstick plates, which release waffles cleanly without the need for extra oiling, are removable, so cleanup is a breeze.”

Hoover Linx Vacuum


Street Price: $120 ; Deal Price: $100

Buy Now $100

Our budget pick from our cordless stick vacuum guide down another $20, making it an even better value on Black Friday.

The Hoover Linx is the budget pick in our cordless stick vacuum guide. We wrote, “For the price, it’s as durable and effective as a cordless vac can get. The Linx is a competent floor cleaner, a little more capable than others at its price. It can pick up visible debris from bare floors and surface debris from short rugs and carpets. The side brushes pull particles away from baseboards pretty reliably.”

Tile Mate & Slim 4 Pack


Street Price: $70; Deal Price: $60

Buy Now $70

A rare Black Friday deal on a 4-pack of Tile trackers

The Tile Mate and Slim are both picks in our Bluetooth tracker guide. We wrote, “The Tile Mate is a good choice if you’re looking to spend a little less money,” and “The Tile Slim is wider but thinner than the other Tile trackers. Because it’s the thickness of about three credit cards, it can fit places where the other Tile models might not, such as in your wallet or stuck to the top of a portable hard drive.”
