- Sharp 65" 4K TV with HDR & Roku $450
Sharp is one of our least favorite TV brands, with many customer reporting faulty screens.
Even though it's a well-known and affordable brand, we recommend others, even the lesser-known brands like TCL.
Although this is still a deal worth mentioning, a Sharp 65-inch 4K TV with HDR and Roku for $450, which is about half the price of most other 65-inch TVs.
Consider purchasing an extended warranty option though, just in case this screen dies like others have experienced.
- Deals Today
Best Buy posted a bunch of hot deals today.
They are calling it their "Early Black Friday Sale" although the deals around Thanksgiving will likely be better, these are amazing prices available today.
TCL 55-inch 4K TV with HDR and Roku for $350.
It's been about $380 for a year, and still one of the best values on the market today.
Ours has been working great for about a year so far, and the HDR alone was a big upgrade from a 1080p TV.
Same deal at Target.com and at Amazon.
- Insignia Speaker with Google Assistant $20, Other Deals
Best Buy has not been deal-friendly much over the last few weeks, but today there are a few deals to talk about:
Insignia Smart Alarm Clock & Speaker with Google Assistant for $20.
Normally about $40.
It works just like a Google Home but shaped like an alarm clock.
The reviews are mostly positive, especially the sound quality, but some reviewers complained about the wrong time being displayed on the unit.
With little or no tech support available, returning the unit may be the only option if you have that problem.
Insignia 6-Quart Pressure Cooker for $40.
Most pressure cookers, like an Instant Pot, sell for at least $75.
They cook meals much quicker than any other way, including potatoes, soup, or brown rice in 30 minutes (instead of 90 minutes on the stove or oven), and frozen salmon in 5 minutes (instead of having to thaw first).
- 48-Pack of AA Batteries $7
Best deal on AA batteries in a while.
The previous deal was $7.50 for a 48-pack.
For an even better deal, choose "Easy Replenish" for $6.29.
You will have to remember to cancel after your order ships, otherwise the Easy Replenish will automatically re-order more batteries for you after a specified time has elapsed.
- 2-Pack Insignia Speakers with Google Assistant $50, With Battery $70
Insignia Voice Smart Bluetooth Speaker & Alarm Clock with Google Assistant.
It works like the Google Home but in alarm clock form.
Plays streaming music, tells the news & weather, and controls smart devices in the home.
The price is $40 for the regular one, or $150 for the portable one.
Don't worry, the price will change:
Add one to the cart.
View the cart, and change the quantity to 2
The total price changes to $50 for the regular model, or $70 for the portable.
Those are for 2.
Shipping is free.
At $25 each (or $35 each for the portable), this is cheaper than 2 Google Home Minis at $39 each.
The reviews of the Insignia speakers are mostly positive.
Reading the reviews, people love the sound quality, the Google Assistant, and the clock on the front.
However, some reviews complain about the wrong time being displayed, and little support available to help.
As one reviewer said, "hold on to your receipt in case you can't get the time to set properly and need to return the unit."
- Amazon Fire 8" Tablet for $50
Amazon Fire HD 8 Tablet for $50 with free shipping.
Amazon's tablets are definitely the cheapest when compared to the prices of iPad and Android.
The Fire has far fewer features than more expensive tablets, and far fewer apps & games in their download library.
It won't sync (or Cast) the display with a TV and won't play YouTube videos, but will play a large selection of shows & movies with an Amazon Prime membership.
