Welcome to the Product Dork Guide for Black Friday and Cyber Monday! This topic will be the place to discuss sales any related sales.
Traditionally Black Friday begins on November 29, the day after Thanksgiving, and runs until the following Monday. However, in the last few years many retailers have moved to offering deals for a week or more. We’ll be covering the best ones here.
How this thread works
The Product Dork team will be updating this post with some of the deals that we like. If it’s a deal on a previous product we’ve featured, We’ll also post a link to that. That way you can see any previous commentary about the product.
What happens when you find an awesome deal?
I’d encourage you to reply to this topic instead of creating a new one. We’ll be monitoring this topic and make sure that the good ones end up in the list.
Black Friday and Cyber Monday sale predictions
In the past we’ve broken the deals up a few different ways. We’ve done stores, product categories and brand lines. Sometimes we’ve done a combination of both. I’ve also considered splitting this into different threads and keeping only our top deals here. We’ll see. How we do it this year will probably depend on first few deals people find.
In the mean time, here are a few predictions we have:
Best Buy The deal isn’t available yet, but we’re expecting $200 off Macbook Air Models. We’re also expecting a good deal with the Sonos Beam at $319 (Usually $399). We should also see the Roku Streaming Stick+ 4K HDR for $29 (usually $49).
Headphones & Audio
Target Get the Sony MDRXB50BS headphones for $89 (Usually $199).
Roomba We’ll likely see deals on everyone’s favorite robot vacuum. Check out our commentary about the best robot vacuums.
Snowe Home Will be having sales starting on November 25. I’m a big fan of their pillows. Here’s how you can get an additional $35 off.
- Serif, the company which builds the Affinity toolset has had deals the last few Black Friday’s. If you’ve upgraded to Catalina and are looking for a CS6 alternative, be on the lookout.

Indochino is will have custom suits on sale. Get an additional $30 off with code MAIL30.
- Target I’ve been told we’ll see a Nintendo Switch bundle with Mario Kart for free.
