Some stores and companies have begun offering early Black Friday sales, so there are plenty of discounts on electronics, accessories, and other tech products already available. For instance, this week you’ll be able to buy a Blink video doorbell and indoor camera bundle for its best price of the month, grab an expansive SSD from Samsung for its lowest price tag ever, snag the Amazon Fire TV Cube for the best possible price, and much more.
Blink Video Doorbell + Mini Camera
$67.48 $129.97 Save $62.49
Why settle for just a Blink video doorbell or just a Blink mini indoor camera when you can get them together for one great price?
Give your home an upgrade with the Blink Video Doorbell and Mini Camera set, tailored for anyone who wants to improve their existing home security system or install a brand new one. Boasting crystal-clear 1080 HD video– available both day and night, thanks to infrared capabilities– motion detection, and two-way audio, you’ll be able to monitor both the exterior and interior of your home at all times and communicate with anyone who comes to your door, directly through your smartphone.
You have the option to install the Blink video doorbell wired or wire-free, depending on your personal preferences. (If you opt for the latter, you’ll receive alerts via the Chime app, or you can use the mini camera as an indoor plug-in chime.) The setup process is a breeze; it shouldn’t take more than just minutes thanks to the user-friendly, in-app instructions. And all the mounting gear you need for the doorbell camera comes included with your purchase, mount, screws, and anchors alike, plus a stand for the Mini indoor camera.
You also have the freedom to choose where to store the footage from the cameras; save and share clips in the cloud with a complimentary 30-day trial of the Blink Subscription Plan, or locally with the USB drive (sold separately) and the included Sync Module 2. Both the Blink Video Doorbell + Mini Camera are Alexa-compatible as well, making this bundle an especially ideal choice for smart homes or for anyone who already owns several Alexa devices.

Bose QuietComfort Earbuds II
$199 $299 Save $100
Bose has reclaimed its throne at the top of the noise cancelling heap, but that’s not all that’s improved in this redesign. Smoother sound and a better fit help these easily outclass the originals.
When you think of noise-canceling headphones, the image of bigger, bulkier headsets likely springs to mind. The Bose QuietComfort Earbuds II, however, are anything but. They’re our top-rated wireless earbuds of the year, and their noise-canceling properties are among the reasons why. And their small, compact size doesn’t hinder this feature in the slighest.
Not only will these wireless earbuds keep out unwanted ambient noise when you need to concentrate or block out the outside world, but unlike some other wireless earbuds, they allow you to keep playing music with only one earbud in—handy for those times when you want to enjoy your favorite music or podcasts but still need to pay attention to your surroundings.
You’ll find that these headphones live up to their name and are comfortable to wear for hours at a time, in no small part thanks to the fit kit that comes along with the actual earbuds, their holder, and their charging cable. The included “stability bands” allow you to better fit the Bose QuietComfort Earbuds II to your ears, making them more comfortable and improving both their noise-canceling properties and overall sound quality in the process.
Whether you want to get a head start on your holiday shopping or you need to replace one of your old electronics, there are plenty of other tech sales going on this week. You’ll be able to get the lowest price yet on a new 75-inch Amazon Fire TV, snag a customizable Logitech computer mouse for half off, snag a Roku streaming stick or ASUS gaming laptop for their best prices of the month, and much more.
