Things are going fast at the end of Black Friday. You may have seen Amazon's Happy HoliDeals page, which has a smashing Amazon tool mixed among a smorgasbord of various gadgets and accessories. But before you buy anything with the Amazon brand ̵

As expected, some of the best early discounts are on Amazon devices (although some of the articles below will be even cheaper in a few weeks, listed above) But I found some notable non-Amazon deals too, so check them out too.
It's not even released yet, but Amazon has just released its first discount on Echo Show 8. It's basically a larger version of the superpopular Echo Show 5 (which is currently on sale for $ 80 , FYI), and therefore better adapted to places like the kitchen, where the 8-inch screen makes it easier to see cooking videos and the like.

Actually, this app-driven garage door controls originally sold for $ 130, so in a way you save $ 100. It has steadily fallen in price, but it's the lowest I've seen it. It is compatible with most garage doors, and its usefulness cannot be overestimated. Probably the best $ 30 you can spend on your house right now.

Sure, there's an avalanche of competition out there, with more noise-canceling headphones than you can silently shake a stick at. But Bose always seems to lead the package with excellent comfort, noise reduction and overall sound quality. Right now, you can get Bose QuietComfort 35 II Wireless Bluetooth Headphones for $ 70 off Amazon. If you don't mind getting a dedicated Google Assistant button, you can still find otherwise identical, refurbished copies of the original Bose QuietComfort 35 headphones at Amazon as well. That said, the price has fluctuated a bit – we saw the QuietComfort 35 II for as low as $ 235 recently, so there may still be some surprises between now and Black Friday. But you really shouldn't pay more than $ 279 if you're in the market between now and the new year.

There are actually savings on several Insignia models, including the 32 and 39-inch models. But if you just need something small for the hall, bedroom or the like, it's hard to beat a full Fire TV for $ 100.

Between Bose, Sony and now Apple AirPods Pro, active noise canceling headphones are all furious. And now we see an old favorite from Sennheiser which is currently only $ 80 on Amazon – down from $ 200 . We reviewed the nearly identical Sennheiser HD 4.50 BTNC two years ago and found it to be a formidable Bose competitor for the $ 200 prize. That model is down to $ 108 on Amazon, but this model – HD 4.50 SE – has literally the same specifications, except for some cosmetic color differences.
While Sony's WH-1000XM3 noise-canceling headphones turned out to be priced at $ 228 very short last week, we can't be sure that it was not just a price error rather than a deliberate effort to underestimate Bose. Still, it is now priced at $ 278, and we would be surprised if it went slightly lower before the holidays. There is little doubt that these excellent earphones are the ones to be beaten right now, which is good, as they are priced roughly the same as its main competitor Bose QuietComfort 35 II .
