There are tons of Apple product discounts at 3rd party resellers but Apple itself is only offering gift cards and only on its older products. I think Microsoft wins Black Friday here because they are offering $400 off their just announced Surface Book 256GB knocking the price down to $1499 shipped.  

And it includes a Surface Pen, 8GB RAM, Core i5 processor and a pretty solid package.

Grab the 128GB version for a very tempting $1249, $250 off.

Apple, you are really testing my loyalties here.  expand full story

Heard the news? Apple’s getting out of the router business but we’ve got some good news: T-Mobile is again offering its re-branded version of the ASUS (RT-AC68U) Wireless-AC1900 Dual-Band Gigabit Router with code WIFI40 at checkout for just $59 shipped. This is a top-tier $200 router for $59 people.

T-Mobile picked it as best for amazing Wifi Calls but it is great at nearly everything and hasn’t ever dipped anywhere close to under $100 (currently $147 at Amazon 4.2/5 star reviews). But the stars have aligned for a few short hours my friends and if you or a loved one needs a kick-ass router, now (like right now) is your time. expand full story

If you were waiting for Black Friday to swoop in on a $1000 70″ Vizio TV with Google Cast support, I’ve got some great news for you. Best Buy has knocked it below the $1000 Black Friday price to just $929.99 shipped. That’s an all time low by over $100 and the lowest price we’ve seen on a 70″ 4K TV. For those unfamiliar, 70-inches is almost 6 feet tall so this screen is bigger corner to corner than most humans are tall.

Oh and it gets very solid reviews (even at its usually higher price).

Amazon and Best Buy’s official eBay storefront offer the Lenovo 21.5-inch 1080p LED Monitor (model LI2264D) for $79.99 shipped. (Also available direct from Best Buy). That’s good for $70 off the original MSRP, down $30 or more from the regular going rate and the lowest that we’ve seen by $5 on this 4.6/5 star rate display with almost no bezels.

Features include full 1080p resolutions at 75Hz and 178-degree viewing angles on the IPS display. HDMI and VGA inputs can be found on the back. It also has an “ultra-thin” design that’s perfect for multi-monitor setups. Rated 4.6/5 stars.

It just started snowing out my window north of New York City and I’m freaking out about getting ready for winter. Luckily, I just happened upon a big Amazon sale on my favorite winter boots and this one is no joke.

Amazon has the Merrell Parkton Trekker Waterproof boots in both Black and Brown for $49.99 shipped. That’s about $70 off and the lowest price I’ve ever seen. I picked up both Brown and Black because you need to be able to accessorize, right guys?!

With your savings, pick up a 3 pack of thermal socks or a couple of Polar Extreme Insulated Thermal Hat for $15/ea at Daily Steals.
