Amazon has announced its Cyber Monday intentions, shortly after we got wind of other major retailer’s plans for next week. The online giant will be offering an additional eight days of deals with new listings popping up as quickly as every five minutes. All of this will go down at Amazon’s official Cyber Hub. Of course, we still have Black Friday ahead of us, you can see all of Amazon’s intentions for the end of the week here.

We’ll be tracking all of the price drops as they occur throughout the day. Be sure to give us a follow on Twitter so you can see the latest news as it happens. Head below for a full list of Amazon’s publicized deals.

As part of its Early Access Black Friday Deals, Best Buy is offering some notable deals on popular Fitbit wristbands. You’ll find the Fitbit Charge Wireless Activity Wristband for $89.99 shipped using code
FITBITDEAL and the Charge HR (hear rate tracking) model for $119.99 shipped using code FITBITHRDEAL at checkout. Both models are rated 4+ stars from between 7,500 and 11,000 Amazon customers.

Both deals are matching the best upcoming Black Friday prices we have tracked, outside of eBay’s expected $115 listing on the HR model. However, with today’s deal, you don’t have to take any chances of them selling out as quickly, while still getting Black Friday pricing. It is not often we see these popular wristbands available with so many color and size options. For example, Amazon only has the Black Charge model in large at $90 right now.

Storing movies and photos can quickly fill up your Macbook. One easy cure is the HyperDrive, which lets you slot up to 128GB of extra storage into your Apple machine. Right now, it is $20 shipped via 9to5Toys Specials. MicroSD storage starts at a few bucks for small amounts and goes up to $18 for 64GB, $40 for 128GB or  $75 for 200GB 

Taking advantage of the SD card slot in the side of modern Macbooks, the HyperDrive can take pretty much any MicroSD, MicroSDHC, or MicroSDXC card. You simply slot in whatever capacity you wish to add, and start using it as a flash drive. Class 10 cards are supported, so you can enjoy transfer speeds of up to 95MB per second, while the Hyperdrive’s compact design means it does not protrude. It also features an aluminum cap so as to blend in with the look of your laptop, and there is a tiny groove on the surface for easy removal. There are two models available — one for the 13-inch Macbook Pro and 13-inch Macbook Air, and the other made for the 15-inch Macbook Pro.

You can currently pick up the HyperDrive for 33% off the regular price with free shipping.


Amazon has the Spigen S330 Apple Watch Stand for $15.99. Apply coupon code 4US4QJH4 during checkout to knock your final price down to just $7.99 shipped. To get free 2-day shipping you must choose the $15.99 listing that’s sold by Spigen and fulfilled by Amazon (looks like this). If you aren’t a Prime member, select the $15.99 listing sold by Spigen and not fulfilled by Amazon (looks like this) to bag free standard shipping. Both deals use the same coupon code. Either way, your total will be just $7.99 shipped. Today’s deal is a match for the lowest we’ve ever seen. Rated 4.6 out of 5 stars from 782 Amazon reviewers.

We took an in-depth look at this Spigen Apple Watch Stand and found it to offer an ideal mix of style and functionality:

If you like the Jony Ive designed iMac base look for your Apple Watch, then Spigen nails the minimal charging stand with the S330. Where it lacks in its ability to hide the required Apple Magnetic Charging Cable, it excels in providing a buy-it-and-forget-it priced option for potential Apple Watch stand customers.

The only downside is that it can only display Apple Watch vertically so it isn’t compatible with watchOS 2 Nightstand mode. If that’s a deal breaker for you, then check out Spigen’s S350 Stand (currently $10.99). expand full story
