I've been covering Cyber Monday deals for over 15 years — and these are the best for 2022

From now through the end of the year retailers are going to bombard you with holiday sales. Their goal is simple: they want a slice of your paycheck and they'll stop at nothing to get it. Smart TV for $79? Check. Coffee machine for $35? Check. 

With so many Cyber Monday deals launching by the hour, it can be hard to separate the good sales from the terrible ones. That's where I come in. I've been covering deals for 15 years, which is most of my career. Whether you're looking for a deal on Apple's new smartwatch, PS5 restock, or the cheapest 4K TV that's worth buying — I can help. 

I understand that everyone's budget is different, so my list below includes deals at all price points. It also includes a few deals I personally hope to pick up in the very near future. If there are any specific deals you're looking for — or any great deals you've taken advantage of — give me a shout in the comments section below. 

And more deals are coming, so check out our Cyber Monday deals live blog

LG C2 42" OLED 4K TV: was $1,596 now $895 @ Amazon (opens in new tab)
This is the TV I personally purchased over the weekend. We named this stunning television the best TV (opens in new tab) 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 just got an additional price cut. Heads up, sometimes Amazon sells via a third party retailer. Should that happen again, Best Buy offers the same price (opens in new tab).

MacBook Pro 13" (M2/256GB): was $1,299 now $1,099 @ B&H Photo (opens in new tab)
Lowest price! 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 (opens in new tab), we said it delivers mind-blowing performance and an epic 18:20 battery life. By comparison, Amazon has it for $1,149 (opens in new tab).

TCL 65" 4K QLED TV: was $599 now $499 @ Best Buy (opens in new tab)

TCL 65" 4K QLED TV: was $599 now $499 @ Best Buy (opens in new tab)
Editor's Choice TV: The TCL S546 is our favorite QLED TV when it comes to value. In our TCL 5-series review (opens in new tab), 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 (opens in new tab)

Google Pixel 6a: for $1/month @ AT&T (opens in new tab)
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 (opens in new tab), 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 $299 (opens in new tab).

HBO Max with ads: was $9.99 now $1.99 per month (opens in new tab)

HBO Max with ads: was $9.99 now $1.99 per month (opens in new tab)
This deal for new and eligible subscribers knocks 80% off HBO Max's ad-supported tier — a perfect way to catch up on stuff you've missed, like House of the Dragon, Succession, and the rest of the best HBO Max shows and movies.

AirPods Pro 2 (2022): was $249 now $199 @ Amazon (opens in new tab)

AirPods Pro 2 (2022): was $249 now $199 @ Amazon (opens in new tab)
Yes, it's a predictable sale, but this is still a solid discount in my book. The AirPods Pro 2 pack Apple's new H2 chip to provide 2x more noice cancellation than their predecessors. They also offer Personalized Spatial Audio with dynamic head tracking for a more immersive audio experience. In our AirPods Pro 2 review (opens in new tab), we said they take everything we loved about the original AirPods Pro to the next level. They're at their lowest price now.

Toy sale: deals from $6 @ Walmart (opens in new tab)

Toy sale: deals from $6 @ Walmart (opens in new tab)
I don't have any kids — nor am I shopping for any — but this sale merits a mention. Walmart is offering some of the best toy discounts I've seen this month. The retailer has Lego sets, Barbie figures, Hot Wheels tracks, and board games on sale from $6. For instance, you can get the (pictured) Lego Creator Animals Bundle for $34 (opens in new tab), a discount of $25 off. 

Alexa devices: deals from $14 @ Amazon (opens in new tab)

Alexa devices: deals from $14 @ Amazon (opens in new tab)
Outside of Prime Day, Black Friday and Cyber Monday are the best time of year to buy any Alexa-powered device. For instance, right now Amazon has practically all of its Alexa devices on sale from $14. Even the newly-launched 2022 Echo Dot is on sale for $24 (opens in new tab) and it comes with a free Philips Hue Smart Bulb. 

Ninja Mega Kitchen System Blender: was $199 now $99 @ Best Buy (opens in new tab)

Ninja Mega Kitchen System Blender: was $199 now $99 @ Best Buy (opens in new tab)
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. It's been on sale for $159 in the past, but it's now back at an all-time price low. 

iLife V3s Pro was $159 now $99 @ Amazon (opens in new tab)

iLife V3s Pro was $159 now $99 @ Amazon (opens in new tab)
I'm including this deal with a small caveat. It was actually cheaper (on sale for $77) earlier this month. However, that price lasted for less than 24 hours and I don't think we'll see it again at that price point. That said, even at $99 this is still a solid deal. Why? Because it's our favorite budget robot vacuum. While it lacks the smarts of more expensive models, the V3s Pro is an excellent robo vac, picking up virtually everything we threw in its path — including pet hair. In our iLife V3s Pro review (opens in new tab), we named the Editor's Choice vacuum the best budget cleaner.

Fitbit Charge 5: was $179 now $99 @ Amazon (opens in new tab)

Fitbit Charge 5: was $179 now $99 @ Amazon (opens in new tab)
The Fitbit Charge 5 is one of the best Fitbits (opens in new tab)on the market. It’s got a built-in GPS which is fast and accurate, a bright, always-on display, and the addition of some of the more high-tech features Fitbit usually reserves for its more expensive trackers, including an electrodermal activity sensor (EDA) and an electrocardiogram sensor (ECG).

Nespresso sale: deals from $118 @ Amazon (opens in new tab)

Nespresso sale: deals from $118 @ Amazon (opens in new tab)
I miss my old Nespresso machine. Although I own a different coffee maker now, this sale is very tempting. Amazon is knocking up to 40% off a wide range of Nespresso machines as part of its Black Friday sales. After discount, deals start from $118. Not sure which model to get? The Nespresso VertuoPlus is on sale for $118 (opens in new tab) (was $169). We named it the best Nespresso machine (opens in new tab) you can get because it makes both coffee and espresso in a variety of sizes from single/double espresso shots to 5-ounce and 8-once cups of coffee. It's designed for use with Nespresso Vertuo capsules only.

10.2" iPad (64GB/2021): was $329 now $269 @ Amazon (opens in new tab)

10.2" iPad (64GB/2021): was $329 now $269 @ Amazon (opens in new tab)
I normally don't like to recommend previous-gen devices, but Apple gear holds up so well, that oftentimes I do recommend previous-gen kit. Take the 10.2-inch iPad, for instance. It features Apple's A13 Bionic CPU, a 12MP front camera, and 64GB of storage. You also get support for Center Stage, which uses machine learning to adjust the front-facing camera during FaceTime video calls. It's no longer Apple's flagship, but it's now at its lowest price ever and a far better deal/value than the 2022 iPad which is on sale for $426 at Amazon (opens in new tab) ($23 off).

Asus VivoBook 14 Pro OLED Laptop: was $599 now $449 @ Walmart (opens in new tab)

Asus VivoBook 14 Pro OLED Laptop: was $599 now $449 @ Walmart (opens in new tab)
There are a lot of cheap laptops on sale these days. However, if you want a laptop with a little more horsepower — one that won't buckle if you try to open two apps — then this is a reliable pick. With its beautiful 14-inch 2880 x 1800 (2.8K) OLED display, thin bezels, and svelte profile, the VivoBook 14 Pro looks like a $1,000 laptop, but costs much less. In our Asus VivoBook 14 Pro review (opens in new tab), we said this notebook is great for day-to-day office work, but also ideal for entertainment. It sports a Core i5-11300H CPU, 8GB of RAM, and 256GB SSD. It's now on sale for just $449, which is actually $50 cheaper than it was on Black Friday proper. 

Meta Quest 2 (128GB) w/ 2 free games: was $399 now $349 @ Meta (opens in new tab)

Meta Quest 2 (128GB) w/ 2 free games: was $399 now $349 @ Meta (opens in new tab)
Yes, we're still mad they raised the price, but the Meta Quest 2 is simply the best VR headset out there. For a limited time you can get a new one at a discounted price with two free games (Resident Evil 4 and Beat Saber) included. Meta and participating retailers are offering the 128GB model for $349 instead of $399, while the 256GB version is down to $429 from $499. In our Meta Quest 2 review (opens in new tab), we called the Meta Quest 2 the best VR headset you can buy. Best Buy (opens in new tab) and Amazon (opens in new tab) offer the same deal. 

Toshiba C350 75" 4K Fire TV: was $899 now $569 @ Best Buy (opens in new tab)

Toshiba C350 75" 4K Fire TV: was $899 now $569 @ Best Buy (opens in new tab)
The Toshiba Fire TV is the perfect smart TV for anyone who wants a modern TV on a small budget. It's part of Toshiba's 2021 lineup of Fire TVs, but it still offers a nice roster of modern features. It supports Dolby Vision, HDR, and HDR10 content as well as DTS Virtual: X audio. The TV is now on sale at its lowest price ever. 

DreamCloud Hybrid Mattress: was $799 now $599 @ DreamCloud (opens in new tab)

DreamCloud Hybrid Mattress: was $799 now $599 @ DreamCloud (opens in new tab)
Free $499 bedding set. I'm shopping for a mattress this holiday season and this is the one at the top of my list. The 14-inch DreamCloud is one of the tallest we've reviewed. It features five layers that offer firm, responsive support as well as soft cushioning. In our DreamCloud mattress review (opens in new tab), we said it's a great bed for just about anyone, but it especially shines for those suffering from hip or lower back pain. As part of its rare flash sale — you can get the DreamCloud Hybrid mattress twin for $599 (was $799) or the queen for $899 (was $1,199). The mattress comes with free shipping, free returns, and a 365-night home trial. Plus, you get a free mattress protector, sheet set, and pillows.
