Have you noticed that Black Friday seems to start a bit earlier each year? Well, this year, the sales are starting even earlier. Better still, the 2021 Black Friday and Cyber Monday Savings are pretty impressive. Here are some of the products we love that are currently available at steep, sometimes incredibly steep, savings.
Recently Added Black Friday Deals:
We’ve got some great Black Friday deals listed below but wanted to quickly add a few new ones we’ve learned about while enjoying out Thanksgiving Turkey.
I reviewed the UE FITS custom fit true wireless earbuds some time ago and love them. In just minutes the special technology baked into them let you create a custom pair of earbuds. There’s not need to go to an audiologist and then wait for the earbuds to be created and shipped.
You fit them in your own home and, before you know it, they are ready to use. These are among the most comfortable earbuds I own and, as one might expect from Ultimate Ears, they sound fantastic. They usually cost $249 but during Black Friday they are just $169. That’s an amazing price for a great pair of earbuds.
But wait, there’s more. If you buy two pair you’ll pay just $160 and, if you grab three the price drops down to just $150. That’s an amazing price for the UE FITS and, trust us, if you gift them the recipients will be THRILLED! Order yours now.
If you read Gear Diary you know that I have never been anything but impressed with Master & Dynamic’s headphones. They are stylish, well built and, most importantly, among the best sounding headphones I have ever used. They are also rather pricey. That’s why I was so excited to see that the company is offering some great savings during Black Friday. Until November 28th, if you spend over $250 you’ll get 25% off using the code SHOP25. And if you spend more than $500 you’ll save an amazing 40%. If you want to get an amazing gift for someone special this is one great way to wow them AND save a bundle. And if you love music… grab some M&D products for yourselves.
My personal recommendations are the MW65 over-the-ear headphones with active noise cancellation and the MW08 Sport true wireless earphones with ANC. They have a carbon fiber battery case that is Qi wireless enabled and do a great job of letting you block out the world so you can enjoy every note. Both sound amazing. Check them out here.

I’ve become a HUGE fan of Olivers Apparel and their great selection of stylish athletic wear. During their Black Friday “Thank You Sale” from Monday, November 22 to November 29, you can save up to 30%. “Up to” because Olivers has opted to approach Black Friday with tiered savings. During the same you’ll save 15% on orders over $150, 25% if you spend $250 or more, and 30% if you spend over $400.
Olivers clothing isn’t inexpensive, but it is stylish, comfortable, and will last a long, long time. This Thank You Sale is a great way to put a few fantastic items in your wardrobe for less.
Jabra’s headphones and true wireless are some of the best on the market. During their Black Friday sale, you can save up to 50%; that’s especially great because their products are already reasonably priced for what you get.
Their third-generation Elite 85t true wireless earbuds are packed with tech and have fully adjustable active noise cancellation. They are well worth the usually $179.99 MSRP but, during the sale, are just $99.99 at Amazon and Best Buy. That’s an amazing deal!
Their Elite Active 75t, which I actually prefer, also has impressive ANC. They are usually $179.99 but are currently just $99.99 at Amazon.
And at just $79.99, their Elite 75t, which are normally $149.99, are an absolute steal. They ALSO have effective ANC, and you can grab a pair at Amazon.
If you prefer over-the-ear headphones with ANC, you definitely need to check out the Elite 85h. Usually priced at $249.99, they are currently $100 off at just $149.99. Grab a pair at Amazon.
Finally, if on-ear headphones are your thing, you can currently get the Elite 45h for just $59.99 at Amazon. That’s a savings of almost 50% off the normal price of $99.99.
The savings are available from November 19 – December 26, except for the Elite 45h. Those are on sale from November 12 – November 29 and December 13 – December 26.
Your home has gotten smarter, so why shouldn’t your vacuum? The Roborock S7+ offers “sonic mopping and mop lifting.” It can store up to 60 days of just and then automatically empty its bin so it can get back to work. Usually priced at $949.98 (hey, this much tech doesn’t come cheap), it is currently $759.99. That’s $230 off the normal price.
Anker recently sent me a number of their new products for review. I’m just beginning to check them out, but I’m already very impressed. The products are thoughtfully designed and reasonably priced; I’m looking forward to sharing the reviews with you in the coming weeks.
In the meantime, check out their huge range of offerings and, until November 28, save up to 35%. For example:
The 4-port Anker PowerPort Atom 3 is usually $49.99 but is currently $13 off. The PowerPort Atom 3 charges four devices simultaneously and pumps out a maximum of 45W. One port is a PowerIQ 3 enabled USB-C port that can charge virtually any USB-C device at top speeds; it will even charge my M1 MacBook Air.
The other three USB ports share a total of 20W, so you can see everything charged with a single charger. I bought one when they were first released and LOVE it.
The PowerPort III Duo is a compact 36W 2-Port PowerIQ 3.0 USB C Charger. It delivers safe, fast charging anywhere you go, thanks to the foldable plug. Usually priced at $27.99, it is currently 25% off. I’m definitely picking up a few of these for Raina and me.
Those are just two of Anker’s products that are part of their Black Friday promotion. Check out the site to see the rest.
My buddy David recently got a new wallet from Ekster. He’s rather picky about his gear, so I had to check them out for myself when he wouldn’t stop raving about it. The company sent me one of their Parliament Wallets to review, and it is awesome. They describe the compact wallet this way:
A premium leather smart wallet, perfect for slim storage and quick card access. The built-in aluminum cardholder fans out your cards at the click of a button and protects them against skimming. Add a tracker card to make it unlosable.
The wallet features:
- Quick card access mechanism
- RFID blocking technology
- Environmentally certified leather
Normally $89, you can currently get one for just $62.
You can even add a solar-powered Tracker to keep tabs on both your wallet AND your phone. It’s on sale too!
Perry turned me on to Ooni Pizza Ovens a few years ago. I’ve had the chance to review more than one, and they are great.

During Black Friday, their entire range of ovens is 20% off.
