Some Cyber Deals for Your Cyber Shopping on Cyber Monday

posted by Jason Kottke   Nov 26, 2018

Retailers love invented holidays and so do shoppers looking for a bargain. The term “Cyber Monday” was coined fairly recently, in 2005, when ecommerce companies started to realize that Internet users in the US waited until after Thanksgiving weekend to begin their holiday shopping. And now the slightly corny term is A Thing™. After a bit of poking around, here are some of the best deals on interesting things that I found.

- The 6-quart Wifi-enabled Instant Pot pressure cooker is on sale for $90. You can schedule your cooking via an app on your phone. If you don’t need that, the regular 6-qt is $70 (30% off).

- 23andMe’s Health + Ancestry DNA testing kit is $129 (35% off). A genetic testing kit from AncestryDNA is only $50 (51% off).

- Hulu is just $0.99/mo for 12 months. What?! That’s worth it just for catching up on The Handmaid’s Tale if you haven’t seen it yet.

- The Oral-B Pro 1000 electric toothbrush is $30 after coupon. I bought one of these this summer and I actually look forward to brushing my teeth now!

- Whoa, a bunch of All-Clad stuff is up to 30% off. This cookware is expensive but it is also the best…well worth it IMO.

- The Anova sous vide cooker w/ Wifi and Bluetooth is just $84 after discounts. I have the first generation version of this from their Kickstarter campaign and love it. Might be time for an upgrade…

- Three Fitbit watches are on sale for up to $25% off: Fitbit Versa Smart Watch, Fitbit Ionic GPS Smart Watch, and Fitbit Charge 3.

- These Bose noise-cancelling headphones are only $110 (63% off).

- My friends at Tattly are offering 30% off with promo code HEARTART30 and will donate a portion of the proceeds to Donors Choose projects.

- It’s nuts that you can get a 50-inch 4K TV for just $300.

- littleBits has a number of deals for up to 33% off their kits. Love these in our house.

- A few LEGO kits are up to 35% off on Amazon.

- The Kindle Paperwhite is not on sale, but there’s a new version out that is thinner, lighter, waterproof, and equipped with Bluetooth for audio. I use my Paperwhite for 95% of my book reading and am definitely getting one of these, sale or no.

- My pals at 20x200 are offering up to 30% off their vast selection of artwork…check out the discount codes here.

- Not on sale, but these Goodthreads t-shirts are currently my go-to for plain white t-shirts. $14.42.
