As always, we hope we helped you sift through the sales madness and find great products. Check our Holiday Buying Guides for the latest reviews and recommendations.
Black Friday might have come and gone, but the deals don’t stop. We’ve rounded up the best Cyber Monday deals you can find for $50 or less. No matter who you’re shopping for, the deals on this list are worth a look, especially if you’re sticking to a strict budget like so many other shoppers out there.
We will update this post with new deals as we find them. If an item is no longer at its deal price or sold out, we
cross it out. Deal prices sometimes return and items come back in stock faster than we can update, so it never hurts to check for yourself.

Gadgets: Home and Outdoor Deals
Cyber Monday offers you the chance to save on cookware, kitchen gadgets, and things for around the house. Spruce up every room of your home and save some cash in the process.
Instant Pot Duo 6-Qt Electric Pressure Cooker for $49 ($51 off)
This Instant Pot is one of the most popular models on the market. It’s easy to use and has enough room to cook recipes for a large family. Instant Pots are pretty versatile too. You can steam, sauté, and even bake with them.
Keurig K-Compact Coffee Maker for $40 ($27 off)
Unlike other compact Keurig models, this version doesn’t require you to refill the water each time you brew a cup of coffee. It won’t take up too much counter space either.
Instant Vortex 6-Quart 4-in-1 Air Fryer for $49 ($50 off)
This air fryer comes from the makers of the Instant Pot. It has a large capacity and plenty of presets that will make air-frying your favorite foods an easy process.
Instant Pot Ace Cooking Blender for $45 ($54 off)
Another product from the makers of the Instant Pot, this cooking blender is marketed as a dupe of the much pricier Vitamix. Use the blender to make soups, smoothies, sauces, and more. If you want to join the morning green juice smoothie cult, this is a good option from a popular brand.
Wemo Mini Smart Plug for $16 ($19 off)
A smart plug is one of the easiest ways to turn non-smart tech into something controllable via your favorite smart-home assistant. We used this one to make our house more energy-efficient.
TP-Link Kasa Smart Plug for $14 ($3 off)
This price point is just a couple bucks more than the best we’ve seen. Try using it to turn off a box fan or a heater in the morning while lying in bed.
LifeStraw Personal Water Filter for $12 ($5 off)
At two ounces, LifeStraws are the lightest, cheapest water filters available. They filter out harmful microbes and bacteria. You can even use them to drink out of a puddle!
BioLite HeadLamp 330 for $40 ($10 off)
This lightweight headlamp stays put while you move. It’s one of our favorite outdoor Cyber Monday deals.
Hydro Flask Water Bottle for $16 ($17 off)
This 0.6-liter flask keeps its contents hot or cold, whether it’s tea, coffee, or water. It’s made of stainless steel and it’s BPA-free, and it’s intentionally narrower than other flasks, ensuring it can fit in most car cup holders and water bottle cages on bicycles.
Farm to Feet Cascade Locks Lightweight Technical Crew Socks for $16 ($7 off)
These merino-blend lightweight socks have targeted cushioning and reinforcement zones, which means your feet will stay dry and comfortable. Other Farm to Feet socks are on sale for this price, too.
Opinel No. 8 Black Oak Folder for $38 ($7 off)
Nearly everyone on the WIRED Gear team likes Opinel knives. This one has a 3.35-inch matte black stainless steel blade, which it folds into the ergonomic oak handle. There’s a locking system for stability and safety as well.
Google Smart Light Starter Kit for $20 ($30 off)
The Google Home Mini that’s included with this kit is currently selling for $19! If you wanted a Google Home Mini anyway, you might as well get one with a bonus bulb. The light bulb doesn’t require a hub and you’ll be able to control it with your voice once it is screwed in.
Gadgets: Tech Deals
Cyber Monday tech deals for 2019 are heavily centered on smart home products, but we’ve managed to find many other discounts worth your time as well. Deals under $50 include headphones, cameras, and home theater gear.
Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K with Alexa for $25 ($25 off)
This is the upgraded Fire TV Stick—it supports 4K content, so it’s a good option if your giftee has the ability to stream ultra high-def movies. The included Alexa Voice Remote adds the ability to control media playback using Alexa, which is a nice (if not wholly necessary) feature.
Google Home Mini Smart Speaker for $19 ($30 off)
Google’s answering call to the Echo Dot is this compact smart speaker. They share many of the same features, with the difference being that Google’s packs Google Assistant rather than Alexa. As a team here at WIRED, we prefer Google Assistant to Alexa, especially for smart home stuff. Keep in mind, this is the first-gen Mini. The newer Nest Mini, which has improved sound and can be wall-mounted, is also on sale for $29 ($20 off).
Echo Dot Smart Speaker for $22 ($28 off)
This smart home building block from Amazon is handy and compact. You can place the speaker nearly anywhere. It sounds pretty good for its size, and this sale is the first time we’ve seen significant savings on the newly-released plum-colored version.
Jaybird Tarah Wireless Earbuds for $50 ($50 off)
The Tarah is among our favorite wireless earbuds for working out. They have a neckband style, and the foamy eartips have rigid “wings” to keep them in your ears during a run.
Fujifilm Instax Mini 9 Bundle for $50 ($60 off)
Different stores are offering this instant camera and film bundle in different configurations, but the price remains the same throughout. For example, Target offers a free $15 gift card, while Kohl’s offers $15 back in Kohl’s Cash. Choose whichever one offers the benefits you’d like.
Echo Show 5 Smart Display for $50 ($40 off)
This device takes an Alexa speaker and adds a screen. Amazon makes two sizes; this one has the smaller 5-inch display, making it a good option for a nightstand as opposed to a kitchen counter.
UE Wonderboom Bluetooth Speaker for $40 ($40 off)
This adorable Bluetooth speaker makes a great gift for teens, since it’s rugged and portable. We recently included it on our list of gear that’s essential for freshman year. There is technically a new model, but it doesn’t change enough to warrant an upgrade.
Fire HD 8 Tablet for $50 ($30 off)
This is our favorite Fire tablet overall. It’s portable, but do know it’s not the same as the newer Fire HD 10 (2019) ($100, save $50), which has a slightly faster processor and a USB-C charging port. Use the Fire HD 8 to run Android apps and games, browse the web, or just stream movies and shows from the likes of Netflix, Amazon, or HBO. Just know that like all Fire tablets, it’s good for streaming and basic tasks, but it does favor Amazon services.
Roku Ultra for $50 ($30 off)
This deal on Roku’s excellent streaming TV accessory is another one that’s up for grabs from multiple stores. Our favorite offering is from Walmart, since the base price is the same as what you’ll find at other retailers, but the deal includes free JBL earbuds as well as a $5 credit for Vudu’s movie service. The deal also includes three-month trials of Pandora and Hulu, which are less enticing, but something you still may be interested in.
Roku Streaming Stick+ for $30 ($20 off)
This low-priced Roku is the best Roku for most people, and this Cyber Monday, the price gets even lower. Various retailers are offering bonuses like discounted streaming services with the purchase of a Roku too.
JLab Audio JBuds Air True Wireless Earbuds for $30 ($20 off)
These are our favorite wirefree earbuds under $50 year-round, but for Cyber Monday, their price will fall to just $30. They’re comfortable and sound better than similarly-priced pairs.
Tile Mate Bluetooth Tracker for $13 ($7 off)
These trackers are incredibly handy. Use them to find lost phones, keys, wallets, and even a pet. If an item goes missing, open the companion app and see the location of the tracker show up like a homing beacon. You can get a four-pack on sale for $15 off, which might be a better deal depending on how many things you’re looking to track.
Lenovo Smart Clock for $40 ($40 off)
We gave this gadget a 7/10 in our review. It’s one of our favorite Google Assistant-powered smart displays, but its small screen is particularly suited to the bedroom. Unlike some similar smart displays, this one doesn’t have a camera.
Epicka Universal Travel Adapter for $16 ($13 off)
This is our favorite travel adapter. It’s compact and easy to pack, plus you get an extra fuse with your purchase in case you blow the first one. It makes a great gift for travelers.
Twelve South AirFly Bluetooth Adapter for $27 ($18 off)
This is another product that made our frequent traveler gift guide. It allows you to use Bluetooth headphones with non-Bluetooth gadgets, like an airplane seat or gym treadmill.
Anker PowerWave Wireless Charging Pad for $12 ($3 off)
This wireless charger is usually pretty affordable, but this Cyber Monday price makes it that much easier to pick one up for yourself or a loved one. Just note that it doesn’t come with an adapter to plug it into the wall, so you’ll either need to use an extra that you have at home or purchase one separately.
JBL Clip 3 Portable Bluetooth Speaker for $30 ($40 off)
The JBL Clip 3 is one of our favorite rugged Bluetooth speakers. It’s IPX7-rated, which means it can be immersed in water, and it’s easy to attach to a backpack or bicycle. A full charge should keep the speaker going for about 10 hours.
Google Smart TV Kit for $35 ($39 off)
This kit includes a first-gen Google Home Mini and a Chromecast, which normally sell for about $35 apiece. It’s like getting a device for free!
SanDisk Extreme 64 GB MicroSD Card for $15 ($25 off)
It’s all too easy to run out of space on your devices, whether it’s a Nintendo Switch or a GoPro. Every capacity of this MicroSD card is on sale, but for these prices, you may as well go big.
Gadgets: Gaming, Movie, and Toy Deals
Shopping for children and grown-up kids alike will be easier with these deals.
Xbox One or PS4 controllers for $40 ($20 off)
We see this deal frequently throughout the year, but this is still the best price you can hope to find. It never hurts to have a spare controller around, and if you’re stumped on what to give the gamer in your life, they’d probably be happy to receive one of these.
Lego Classic Creative Fun Set for $20 ($20 off)
Those sets of small plastic bricks can add up to spending tons of cash. This set has 900 pieces in an array of rainbow hues.
Best Buy Game Deals
The big-box retailer will have about a gajillion games on sale for $50 or less during Cyber Monday. Top hits like The Last of Us: Remastered will be just $10, and more titles, such as Diablo III, will be on sale for only $25.
Sega Genesis Mini Console for $50 ($30 off)
This pint-sized blast from the past comes preloaded with 40 games and two controllers. No difficult setup is required, either. Just plug it into your TV and start blasting. Maybe you could open it on Christmas Eve and spend the whole night gaming like you did when you were a kid.
Just Dance 2020 on Nintendo Switch for $25 ($15 off)
Just Dance 2020 is being lauded as a return to the game series’ original roots. If you first played it using a Microsoft Kinect, an Xbox 360, and a 32-inch plasma TV, perhaps it’s time to revisit.
Harry Potter Complete 8-Film Blu-ray Collection for $40 ($11 off)
This movie set hasn’t dropped so low in price since, well, last Cyber Monday. Rather than waiting for commercial breaks to finish watching the series, or streaming from dubious sources on the internet, own the movies for yourself.
Avengers: Endgame (Blu-ray) for $8 ($17 off)
We at WIRED love this movie. In fact, it’s one of our favorites to watch this holiday season. If you’re shopping for an Avengers fan, or you are one yourself, this doorbuster would make a great stocking stuffer. It doesn’t just include the movie; you’ll find deleted scenes, gag reels, a tribute to Stan Lee, and more.
Santorini Board Game for $15 ($15 off)
If your family plays board games during the holidays, you can add this one to your collection. The strategy-based game revolves around building a three-story structure, and whoever does it first wins. It can be played with two to four people at once.
Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey for Xbox One or PS4 for $15 ($35 off)
This game had a messy launch when it was released nearly a year ago. Despite not being new, today’s price is a good one. The series has been remixing the same formula for years, but overall, Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey is well-reviewed.
Catan: 5th Edition for $25 ($25 off)
The Settlers of Catan is one of the most popular board games on the market. This is the newest edition of the game, which means a shortened name and revised packaging, but the gameplay is still just as addictive. Three to four players ages 10 and up can compete to strategically develop the island of Catan. It’s easy to learn, and there are several expansions (some of which are on sale) to keep gameplay interesting. Check out our favorite tech-centric board games for more ideas.
