Cyber Monday deals — last year's best sales
LG C2 42" OLED 4K TV: was $1,299 now $999 @ Best Buy
The excellent LG C2 OLED TV is now under comfortably under a grand — for the 42-inch model. We rated this the best TV of 2022. It combines exceptional picture-quality with a slick design. It's also ideal for gamers with a 120Hz refresh rate and offers all easy access to all the streaming services you could need. All sizes are on sale, but the 42-inch model is the cheapest. Amazon offers the same price, but stock is low. (Ed. note: This deal is so great, I personally bought the 65-inch model myself).
10.2" iPad (64GB/2021): was $329 now $299 @ Amazon
The 10.2-inch iPad features Apple's A13 Bionic CPU, a 12MP front camera, and 64GB of storage (instead of 32GB like its predecessor). You also get support for Center Stage, which uses machine learning to adjust the front-facing camera during FaceTime video calls. Sure, it's no longer Apple's flagship, but it's an excellent value and more affordable than ever.
TCL 65" 4K QLED TV: was $599 now $549 @ Best Buy
Editor's Choice TV: The TCL S546 is our favorite QLED TV when it comes to value. In our TCL 5-series review, we said it offered killer performance and a wide variety of features. These include support for Dolby Vision/HLG/HDR10/HDR10 Plus, voice remote with Alexa support, auto game mode, and Google TV. This is a killer value.
Google Pixel 6a: for $1/month @ AT&T
Phone deals don't get cheaper than this, folks. Right now AT&T has the Pixel 6a on sale for $1/month. In our Pixel 6a review, we called Google's phone the best sub-$500 phone on the market. It offers a bright display and better performance than its closest Android rival, the Galaxy A53. Don't want to be tied down to AT&T — Amazon has the unlocked Pixel 6a on sale for $359.
Luna Weighted Blanket: was $124 now $76 @Amazon
If you're after a premium weighted blanket, this is a great offer. Coming in at number one in our best weighted blankets, the Luna blanket is 100% Oeko-Tex certified breathable cotton and filled with premium glass beads, for maximum comfort and relaxation. These are also machine washable. This offer currently stands for the Queen size (15lbs), but you need to check the 10% off digital coupon box to get the extra discount.
Nectar: was $599 now $359 @ Nectar
Our favorite value mattress is now on sale. Nectar is taking 33% off sitewide, which is its best discount of the year. In our Nectar mattress review, we called the Editor's Choice mattress a tremendous value for the money. We found it to be very comfortable (thanks to its five layers of memory foam) and also found it offers excellent pressure relief around your shoulders, hips, and back. Bonus points for offering an impressive 365-night trial and a forever guarantee. As part of its Cyber Monday deal — you can get the twin mattress for $359 (was $599) or the queen for $669 (was $999). Those prices beat last year's Cyber Monday flash sale, but they're set to expire at midnight West Coast time.
MacBook Pro 13" (M2/256GB): was $1,299 now $1,149 @ B&H Photo
The new MacBook Pro sports a 13.3-inch Retina display (2560 x 1600), Apple's new M2 CPU w/ 10 core GPU, 8GB of RAM, and a 256GB SSD. In our MacBook Pro 13-inch M2 review, we said it delivers mind-blowing performance and an epic 18:20 battery life. Check a different color if you don't see this price. By comparison, Amazon has it for $1,247.

Lowest price! The Ninja Mega Kitchen System Blender can mix, blend, juice, and process all of your favorite foods. It has a high-volume 72-ounce blender capacity and also includes a 64-ounce round bowl that doubles as a food processor along with two 16-ounce blender cups with built-in blades for smoothies and shakes.

The middle child of Samsung's latest Galaxy S family comes with a vivid 6.6-inch display, an effective triple-camera array on the back, and a powerful chipset. It's one of the top phones for under $1,000, but now even cheaper.
iPhone SE (2020): was $149 now $99 @ Walmart
To get the cheapest iPhone around, head to Walmart and grab this $99 model. Yes, there are newer models available, but few cost this little. It's a great first phone that parents can give to their kids, so long as they don't mind a device that's tied to Straight Talk for its wireless service.

The Amazon Echo (4th Gen) smart speaker has crashed to a new lowest ever price of $49; that's $50 off.

Ring Video Doorbell Pro: was $169 now $99 @ Amazon
If you want the latest tech in your video doorbell, look no further than the Ring Video Doorbell Pro. It features advanced motion detection, an FHD camera, and built-in Alexa greetings. While hardwiring will be required to your existing doorbell, this is great value. Note that this is the original model; a newer Ring Video Doorbell Pro 2 is available, though it costs $259.
Blink Mini Indoor Cam: was $34 now $29 @ Amazon
Offering great day and night-time footage on the cheap, as well as impressive granular settings, the Blink Mini Indoor Cam is a great choice for those who don't have enormous budgets for home security.
Are there Cyber Monday deals at Apple?
The Apple Store doesn't have proper Cyber Monday deals. Instead, the retailer extends its Black Friday promo though Cyber Monday. Last year, it offered up to a $250 Apple gift card with eligible devices. However, we usully see better Apple Cyber Monday deals from Amazon.
When is Cyber Monday 2023?
Cyber Monday 2023 will fall on Monday, November 27. However, in the past, some of the earliest Cyber Monday deals we've seen have started on Thanksgiving Day. Likewise, many Cyber Monday sales will also extend beyond November 27 and last through the first week of December.
Mattress discounts and Cyber Monday
From weighted blankets to mattresses, we expect to see massive discounts on all things related to the bedroom. Mattresses will undergo epic price drops as popular brands like Purple, Saatva, and Tuft & Needle offer the lowest prices of 2023. Make sure to follow our Cyber Monday mattress deals coverage for the best sales of the season.
What to expect from Cyber Monday deals
Lego sets, Apple devices, small kitchen appliances, and 4K TVs will be high on many people's shopping lists. Fortunately, these are the items that tend to see the steepest discounts on Cyber Monday.
Earlier this summer we saw the MacBook Air M1 on sale for just $849 and the iPad on sale for an all-time low of $279. That beats last year's best Cyber Monday deals for these Editor's Choice devices. However, given that Cyber Monday deals are the lowest prices of the year, we can expect 2022's best deals to drop even lower. For reference, some of the best Cyber Monday deals of the previous year include 75-inch 4K TVs from $499 and AirPods from $89.
When it comes to Cyber Monday deals on consoles, the PS5 and Xbox Series X might be easier to find, but don't expect any price cuts. Beyond tech, Cyber Monday deals also discount kitchen appliances, such as Instant Pots, air fryers, and coffee machines. There are also excellent discounts on mattresses with epic dollar-off discounts on some of our favorite brands like Nectar, Casper, Purple, and more. Expect to save as much as $500 on a new mattress.
Cyber Monday deals and PS5
When it comes to Cyber Monday deals on consoles, the PS5 and Xbox Series X will be easier to find in stock. That said, make sure to follow our PS5 restock and Xbox Series X restock coverage for tips on how to get a console before the holiday rush.
Cyber Monday deals and Apple
The Apple Store doesn't offer Cyber Monday deals per se. However, in previous years we've seen them extend their Black Friday sale through Cyber Monday. That said, we recommend buying your Apple devices from other Apple-authorized retailers, such as Best Buy and Amazon. They tend to offer better dollar-off discounts on Apple gear, whereas the Apple Store might just offer free gift cards with the purchase of select devices.
In-store Cyber Monday events
Cyber Monday deals are generally online only sales. However, we've noticed an uptick in console restocks that are taking place in-store. Best Buy and GameStop have had (or will have) PS5 in-store restocks. While it's very likely we'll see similar in-store events in November in the lead up to Thanksgiving — we don't expect to see many in-store Cyber Monday deals once the first sales begin.
