The Roomba i7 Plus has all of the features in the lower-priced i3 Plus — 3-mode cleaning, high suction, self-emptying mechanism in the dock, and more — but adds smart mapping and keep-out zones, so you can teach the robot exactly where to clean, and where to avoid.
Wellbots is the better deal because you don’t pay sales tax in any state except New York. But if Wellbots sells out, you can get the Roomba i7 Plus at Amazon for the same price.
The Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700 are hard to talk about without comparisons to the iconic Quiet Comfort 35 II.

Amazon’s ever-popular Kindle Paperwhite comes in a handful of colors, is fully waterproof (because who knows where you’re going to want to do some reading) and, as the name suggests, has an easy-on-the-eyes Paperwhite display. The best part? The battery only needs a recharge about once every three or four weeks. It’s usually $130, but you can save $45 right now.

Black Friday/Cyber Monday deals that have sold out or expired
The Chefman ToastAir 6-Slice Convection Toaster Oven does double duty as an air fryer. It has a temperature range from 200 F to 450 F and includes seven presets for different baking tasks. The spacious 20-liter interior accommodates six slices of toast and most standard baking pans — you can even fit a 5.5-pound chicken without trouble.
This deeply discounted Bowflex treadmill features a 7.5-inch full-color LCD console that displays information like distance, resistance and even calories you’ve burned in real time while the hand grip monitors your heart rate, and it includes Bluetooth connectivity as well. It’s powered by a 3.75-continuous-horsepower motor that drives a 20×60-inch tread belt. You can incline up to 15 degrees.
Dyson’s V7 Animal is good for people with pets thanks to its ability to clean up pet hair from any surface in your home. It weighs less than 6 pounds and does double duty as a full-height stick vacuum or a handheld vac for smaller messes, and runs for about 30 minutes on a charge.
If you’re going to spend up for a Dyson, you might as well go for one of the best models in the company’s vacuum line. The V10 Animal is a cordless stick vacuum that offers up to 60 minutes of runtime and (according to Dyson) delivers 55% more suction power than its V7 line. This model can also run in a handheld mode, and it’s specifically designed to suck up pet hair, too (thus the “Animal” name).
Hisense’s expansive 65-inch TV features a 4K LED display with a 120Hz refresh rate, and DTS Virtual:X audio. The Android TV streaming video software can be controlled by voice via Google Assistant, plus it has Bluetooth and Chromecast support.
This is the latest, greatest entry-level iPad introduced in September of 2020. The only real downside is that you’re getting a relatively tight 32GB of storage. Amazon appears to have matched Best Buy’s earlier curbside delivery price of $280, at least on some colors. That’s about the lowest we’ve seen this season, but last year’s model sold for as low as $250 during this time in 2019.
