Black Friday ad roundup: eBay Daily Deals will have PS4 for $330, iPhone 6 discounts, iTunes cards 25% off, more

This time next week we’ll all be recovering from our Black Friday hangover and prepping for Cyber Monday. But before that, we have a whole lot of deals (and turkey!) to splurge on.

eBay Daily Deals is one of our favorite places to score a hot deal and we finally have its Black Friday plans. As expected, it includes some pretty great deals.

PlayStation 4 will be just $329.99, which is the lowest price we have ever seen and better than any other pre-announced Black Friday deal. We’re not sure on exact models or pricing, but the ad states that iPad Air 2 will get a 20% discount. An unlocked iPhone 6 will be available for $639.99. That’s just a $10 discount but it’s still notable since it’s the first deal we’ve ever seen on Apple’s latest smartphone and you can potentially save on sales tax at the time of purchase. The $35.99 Xbox Live 12-month Gold Membership and 25% iTunes gift card discount are also extremely strong deals.

Review/Giveaway: Aukey 4-port car charger delivers fast charging to 4 tablets at once: $17 Prime shipped (66% off)


Sometimes it is hard to be definitive on “Best of” products. On car chargers, it now isn’t. I’ve been using the Aukey Quad-port car charger for a few weeks and it is the most powerful, most solid, has the most ports and is one of the smallest I’ve tried. It also holds up well after multiple insertions and removals and it looks as good as a car charger is going to get. It also has a chip inside that not only knows how much charge to deliver to each port, but it also knows when the charge is complete and will shut down.

We’re talking no-brainer territory here.

Even if you have USB ports in your car, they likely don’t quick charge iPhone 6s s and iPads. This one does. Up to 4 of them at a time via the 48W/9.6A total output.

Amazon is currently offering the Aukey Quad-port car charger for $16.99 with free Prime shipping. That’s 66% off!

Oh, and as sad as it is for me, I’ll send this slightly used demo unit to someone who shares 9to5toys/this post on social media or signs up for our newsletter (US only).
