  1. Cyber Monday is here, which means continued savings on your favorite items. To help you out, the team at StackCommerce has scoured the web for some of the best tech deals available today and compiled them below. And since prices only go up (or stock is depleted) as we get closer to Christmas, now is the time to get your shopping done. One thing to note – some of these deals may expire before the day ends, so act fast if you are set on buying something.

    1. 50" Vizio M50-D1 4K UltraHD Home Theater Display + $200 Dell Gift Card + 6" Android Tablet Remote for $599.99

    This Vizio is one of the best deals on Cyber Monday we've seen so far. With an effective price of $400 after you use the gift card, you'll be getting top notch home theater display with highly rated picture quality from the likes of CNET. It includes a home theater like 6" tablet remote which you can surf, watch and stream content. The $200 gift card can be used towards a PS4 Pro, electronics and of course laptops from Dell, effectively discounting the TV to only $400!

    2. 65" Samsung 4K Ultra HD LED Smart HDTV w/ HDR + $200 Dell Gift Card for $1099.99 (Orig $1800)

    If you were in the market for a great large screen TV, then this Samsung 6 series TV checks off all the boxes you want in a new TV: 4K resolution, sleek curved display and HDR support. It gets strong reviews for picture quality and was our favorite HDTV deal for Black Friday that you can still get.

    3. CyberPower 1500VA Uninterruptible Power Supply with Pure Sine Wave for $129.95 (Orig $205)

    This CyberPower power supply keeps your computer or whatever you have plugged into it running even when the power goes out. This gives you enough time to power down a computer before it shuts down. We have the same capacity power supply connected to our cable modem and router so that our internet keeps going for hours until the power goes back up.

    4. Dell Inspiron 15 3000 Intel Core i3 Dual-Core 15.6" Laptop with Touchscreen and Windows 10 for $349.99 (Orig. $530)

    If a cheap laptop was on your wishlist then consider this PCMag Editor's Choice laptop. This comes with the newest Windows 10 and has a touchscreen so you can make most out of all Windows' new functionality.

    5. Cyber Monday Fitbit Discount: $60 Fitbit Flex 2, $85 Alta, $110 Charge 2, $127 Blaze Smart Watch

    These Fitbits are a good 10-15% cheaper than we saw on the already discounted Black Friday prices and now the new lowest price we've seen all year. We encourage you to act fast as we don't believe these will last long.

    6. Dyson Ball Multi-Room Vacuum for $249 (Orig $399)

    One deal that was entirely missing from this year's deals was a Dyson vacuum cleaner. Luckily Amazon's Cyber Monday sale has one but we anticipate it will not last long so act fast. This is one of the lowest prices for a brand new Dyson Ball vacuum we've seen since last Black Friday.

    7. Amazon Echo Dot with Alexa Digital Assistant $39.99 (Orig $49.99)

    Last day for discount! The Echo Dot is one of the most inexpensive ways to easily add Amazon's Alexa voice service to your home. Ask it to play music, gets sports or news updates, set alarms or even control your home automation. Best of all unlike the Echo you can plug in your existing speakers and get wireless music anywhere in your home. At $40 its a steal and a great way to add Alexa anywhere. If you wanted a 360-degree room filling speaker then consider the very popular Echo Speaker for $140.

    8. Amazon Fire TV Stick w/ Alexa Remote for $29.99 (Orig $39.99)

    Last day for discount! One of the best TV streaming sticks just got a little better this year and is now on sale for the Holidays. Professional reviews think this is one of the better stick players to get, especially at this low price. The best feature is of course Alexa's voice search integration letting you very quickly find the shows you want in addition Alexa's other features.

    9. eero Home WiFi System (Complete Wireless Coverage In Your Home) for $141.99 (Orig $199)

    If you are sick of dead spots and dropouts when you are on WiFi then consider upgrading to the eero wireless systems. It's a set of 3 adapters that will cast a wireless net big enough so that you won't get dropouts. Wireless networking can be difficult to set-up even for experienced techies. At $141 this is actually under $50 per adapter and less than buying an expensive higher end router that may not solve your dead spot issues.

    10. Segway Mini Pro with App Control (14-Mile Range and 10MPH Top Speed) for $599 (Orig $799)

    Discount appears in cart. If you are frequently faced with being too close to drive and too far to walk, then this Segway could be a great solution for you. It's intuitive to drive and you will get the hang of it in no time. Many people with mobility disability find this to be a great alternative to a wheel chair.

    11. Fire Kids Edition 7" Tablet w/ Kid Proof Case for $74.99 (Orig $100)

    This is the cheapest price on the highly rated Fire Kids tablet we've seen. We played with this ourselves and are mighty impressed with the super protective case it includes. Best of all this has unlimited access to 10,000 kid friendly and educational books, movies and TV shows and you can control just how much screen time the kids get. Act fast as this is backordered and you can still get this in time for Christmas.

    12. New Amazon Fire HD 8 Quad-Core Tablet for $59.99 (Orig $89.99)

    This is the lowest price we've seen on the new Fire HD8. It's fantastic little media tablet with a sharp display, dual stereo speakers, and you get access to Amazon Undergrounds gargantuan free app store and never pay for another app. If you are a Prime member you will want to have this as you can download movies and shows to watch on a plane.

    13. Blendtec Total Blender w/ FourSide Jar & 1560W 3HP Motor for $237.99 ($402.99)

    BlendTec makes the same powerful smoothie makers you find at Jamba Juice. It has one of the more powerful motors at 3HP and will easily make smoothies, soups, and more. Clean up by blending water and detergent for a few seconds. This is one of the lowest prices we've seen for any blender with this size and power.

    15. Cyber Monday Special: Up to 40% off Kindle Unlimited Subscription: 1-year for $80.32, 2-Years for $143.85 (Orig $120 for 1-year or $240 for 2-years)

    Amazon discounts their Kindle Unlimited Subscriptions only once a year during Cyber Monday. They are offering 33% off when you sign-up for a 1-year subscription or 40% off for 2-years. At the $9.99 list price you are easily already saving yourself money. At the discounted prices you pay only $7 a month which is a massive savings compared to buying a $15 book every month.

    15. Instant Pot 6-Quart Electric Pressure Cooker for $68.95 (Orig. $119.99)

    This is one of the top sellers every Black Friday and this year it's even cheaper and actually in stock. A pressure cooker only takes a fraction of the time to produce bone broths, hearty winter stews, braised meats then a pressure cooker is for you. We bought one last year and it is easily one of our favorite and most used kitchen gadgets.

    16. KitchenAid Professional 6-Quart Stand Mixer with Bowl Lift for $219.95 (Orig $549.99)

    This is a great gift for any baking enthusiast. This is one of the best prices we've seen for the professional version and cheaper than smaller and less featured versions. Whether its for Christmas, a wedding gift, or for yourself this is simply an unbeatable price.

    17. iRobot Roomba 770 Robot Vacuum for $379.99 (Orig $500)

    The Roomba has been a popular vacuum to buy over this Holiday weekend with the lower end 650 model selling out. While the lower price on the $650 is appealing the 770 has a number of functions that will make you want to upgrade. It includes dual HEPA filters, has sensors to concentrate more cleaning on dirtier areas, and a remote control to start cleaning from the couch or bed.

    18. Last Day: Lowest prices of the year on Kindles: $50 Kindle, $90 Paperwhite, $170 Voyage

    These are the lowest prices we've seen all year on the Kindles, and they're going away after today. At $50 the Kindle is still one of the best eReaders out there. For serious readers or those looking for an upgrade the Paperwhite and Voyage have a higher resolution display and built-in backlights. lastly, For serious readers and travelers the Voyage has the design details you will appreciate: higher build quality, an adaptive backlight and PagePress buttons.

    19. LifeStraw Personal Water Filter for $13.99 ($20)

    This is the perfect little stocking stuffer for any outdoor enthusiast. This little straw lets you purify water up to 1000-liters of contaminated water without the use of any chemicals.

    20. 10 Pack Philips LED 40W Equivalent Light Bulbs for $19.99 (Orig $35.99)

    At only $2 per bulb, this is one of the lowest prices we've seen. These bulbs last forever, save a decent amount over CFL bulbs and you will feel a little less guilty bad about forgetting to turn the lights off.

    21. Foscam R2 1080p HD Wireless Security Camera & Monitor $74.99 (Orig $129.99)

    While there are fancy wireless security cameras out there like the Nest or DropCam, one of the best selling Black Friday cameras we are seeing is the relatively unknown Foscam camera. For a low price of $75 which is half the cost of the currently discounted Nest Camera you a 1080p camera with the ability to pan and tilt. These are perfect to keep an eye on pets, use as a baby monitor, or set up to ensure your house is in order while you are away.

    The only deal I saw there that attracted my attention were the activity trackers. Not too bad...

    Mostly it's appliances, big screen TV's or cheap tech junk (I would never spend more than $19.99 on a Fitbit).

    Thing is: how many TVs can you sell us? Unless we are replacing a TV, there's no need to shop for a new one - and each unit typically lasts more than 80,000 hours. .

    Bottom line: shopping was down in 2015 and it's down in 2016 (I've already seen reports). That's why the "sales" have effectively been extended till tuesday.

    People with houses drive the consumer market and in order to have houses, you need to have jobs. The job market is down and housing purchases are as well. The liars in media claim "jobs are great" but:

    #1 part time work is replacing full time.
    #2 Obamacare forces employers to cover healthcare if you work "full time" (40+ hours) so what do they do? They hire you for fewer hours to cover themselves and then rely on welfare to make up the difference.

    I went shopping on Black Friday and snagged a two Craftsman snowblowers (marked down to $399 from $700) and a big tool chest for my Hellcat and Jeep SRT's wheel tools.

    I noticed - even at 11AM, there really weren't a lot of people shopping.

    some say many of them stayed home. I believe that when final counts are done, we'll see the truth, consumer spending was less than last year.

    They can't even get us to buy extra peripherals for game consoles: I buy my games as DLC from my bed.

    Unfortunately this is for only an individual router, not a set of three. A three pack is $400, down from $500. Love the idea of these mesh routers, but still way too expensive for me.

    "3. APC 1500VA Uninterruptible Power Supply with Pure Sine Wave for $129.95 (Orig $205)"

    Your way wrong... "According to Adobe, Black Friday set a new record by topping the $3 billion mark to reach $3.34 billion, a more than 21 percent growth year over year. The shopping holiday was the first in retail history to drive over one billion dollars in mobile revenue at $1.2 billion, Adobe added."
    The average person spent less about $289 but that's only cuz the deals were really good. Target had 55" 4k TV for only $249!!! That's way cheaper than last year.

    I think the wrong article was posted. I didn't see anything much less 21 deals I would have wanted.
