    Promising review: "Ordered on the Black Friday sale for $99 with free one day shipping. Arrived in the mail Saturday morning. I spit in the tube, and put the tube in the prepaid package the same day. Saturday it was picked up by USPS and was delivered to their lab Monday. Tuesday they began DNA extraction. Wednesday they began DNA analysis and Friday they finished their quality review and began generating my reports. On Sunday I got my results. Expected time to ship your DNA to the lab is 2-4 weeks. Mine got there in 2 days. I expected to wait 6-8 weeks before getting my results, but got them 8 days after shipping the package. It was very exciting getting my ancestry and health results back, as I'm adopted and wasn't sure of my nationality or any health risks. I was connected with over 1000 DNA relatives, but only one was a close relative (2nd cousin). Overall I found this experience very enjoyable. 10/10." —K. Leclercq

    Price: $99 (originally $199)

    Up to 25% off a 7-in-1 Instant Pot that'll whip you up dinner without you ever needing to open your cluttered pots-and-pans drawer. It's also on sale rn!!

    The Instant Pot
    Amazon

    This do-it-all kitchen appliance is a pressure cooker, slow cooker, rice cooker, steamer, sauté pan, yogurt maker and warmer.

    Promising review: "I use the pressure cook and slow cook options regularly! I even got rid of my stovetop pressure cooker, because I wasn't using it anymore. This one does the job perfectly well, with no noise, and no mess. The sauté feature is a huge bonus. A lot of slow cooker recipes require that you brown the meat first. It really saves the mess and hassle of browning it on the stove, and then transferring it over to the slow cooker. I simply use the sauté feature to brown whatever I need, then turn it off, switch to slow-cook mode, cover, and walk away. It's the best feeling to get home from work in the evening and have a home-cooked meal ready to go!" —Beatriz

    Price: $59.99+ (originally $79.95+; available in three sizes and three styles).

    33% off a Tempur-Pedic Cloud Pillow for anyone in the market for a sleeping game changer — this pressure-relieving, super-soft pillow adapts to the grooves of your shoulders, neck, and back to give you the comfiest sleep possible, whether you're a back, side, or stomach sleeper.

    Promising review: "I first got the 'essential' model and thought it was nice, but I wanted a little more loft so I got this... This is perfect! When you consider how much time you spend sleeping, you really shouldn't skimp on a pillow... It is sooooo comfortable. I usually sleep on my stomach, but also on my side and sometimes i start off on my back. All are equally comfortable. No negatives except I have to hide it from my cats because if they find it i'll never get it back!!!" —bruce

    Price: $45.99 (originally $69)

    Check out the rest of Amazon's pre-Black Friday Tempur-Pedic deals for more options, including pillows, mattresses, mattress toppers, and more.

    30% off an Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K for bringing you thousands — literally thousands — of streaming channels, movies, and shows, as well as live TV, news, and sports.

    The remote
    Amazon

    The remote is Alexa-compatible so you can use voice commands to find something new to watch, launch an app, search for a movie, or even order yourself a pizza. Your old remote could never!

    Promising review: "I love it! It’s my first Fire Stick and since I lost my remote for my LED TV, this replaces it. Best purchase in awhile! Fast response and the sound is great! Oh and Alexa responds so well on here! I enjoy being able to whisper to her at night to go to Hulu, Netflix, YouTube, Disney+, etc. so my hubby can keep sleeping!" —Melody

    Price: $27.99 (originally $39.99)

    40% off a compact light-therapy lamp to mimic the morning sun and give you a lil' boost of energy and happiness — this UV-free lamp has three different brightness settings to bring the perfect amount of light to your life.

    Amazon

    It also comes with a timer, so they can set it to stay on anywhere between 10 and 60 minutes before it shuts off automatically. They recommend users start with ten minutes (and avoid staring directly at it) to see how it impacts mood and energy before trying it for longer periods of time. Many reviewers swear by this for helping improve their mood, energy levels, and sleep by getting more "sunlight" in darker months when they might not actively be getting as much.

    Promising review: "This was wonderful the first instant I used it. I sat in silence on a dark morning with my coffee, having the light indirectly on me (two feet away) as I enjoyed the silence and my cat. By the end of the first cup of coffee, I was feeling a bit more awake (10 minutes into the 20-minute cycle I chose.) I suffer from SAD every single year. This year promises to be an easier year with this AMAZINGLY BRIGHT light. It means it when it says do not stare at it. However, that should be common sense. Three light settings, and you can either turn it on until you have 'had enough,' or use the hour-long timer which is divided into 10-minute increments. I ABSOLUTELY RECOMMEND!!!" —Lonnie C. Appleby

    Price: $35.99 (originally $59.99)

    Up to 23% off a 50-inch Samsung 4K Smart QLED TV so you can watch your favorite shows, movies, and video games in the smoothest, clearest picture possible.

    25% off a Baby Yoda Bluetooth speaker with a built-in strap so the Force (and the beats) are always with you.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I just wanted a small Bluetooth speaker for bedtime audio books. This is louder than I expected and my son just loves it! It is easy to keep nearby because of its small size, and I am happy with this purchase!" —ray cerda

    Price: $14.97 (originally $19.99)

    53% off an Echo Dot that'll tell you how many cups are in a quart while your hands are covered in flour. You can also use it to play music, call your partner to remind them to pick up butter at the store, or turn your lights on and off with a simple voice command.

    Promising review: "This is my fourth Echo dot. We have one in every room. They make it easy to communicate with other family members who tend to forget their phones in another room. I use the echo to add items to my grocery list, listen to music, set timers while cooking, and for routine alarms and reminders. I honestly don’t know what I would do without my Echo Dots." —CKRawls

    Price: $18.99 (originally $39.99; available in four colors)

    25% off Apple AirPods so you emerge from the tangled mess of old earbuds and take calls, listen to music, and easily switch between devices with these.

    The AirPods
    Amazon

    Promising review: "Excellent, pretty useful, easy to use, and reliable. At first I had some doubts about it being reliable to my Mac as some Bluetooth speakers sometimes cut off, but these work great and are really comfortable to my ears. Aesthetically, they look great to me. Worth every penny." —Ivan

    Price: $119 for AirPods (originally $159)

    33% off a Bissell robot vacuum because you'll be happy if you never have to lug your heavy, oversized vacuum from the closet.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I had surgery and my doctor said no vacuuming. My springer spaniel sheds a lot. I ordered the Bissell pet robot vacuum and I was amazed that the robot Bissell was the answer to my prayers. I love it!" —MARY TOMFOHRDE

    Price: $199.99 (originally $299.99)

    Amazon

    Promising review: "It is very useful for us. Wife works in hospital so always needs to sanitize mobile phone, keys, and masks. Really handy and very easy use." —Nadeeka Kariyawasam

    Price: $39.99 (originally $49.99)

    Up to 51% off a Revlon hot air brush to help you go from wet, tangled, frizzy hair to a sleek and shiny blowout in minutes.

    amazon.com

    The brush has special vents that allow air to flow so hair dries faster. Plus, it's quicker than using a dryer and then a flat iron or curling iron, which equals less heat damage.

    Promising review: "After reading review after review I decided to give this hair dryer a try. What can I say — best decision ever! As you can see from first picture, right after washing hair, no products or anything, my hair looks absolutely awful. After not even 12 minutes, dividing hair into sections, my hair looks like I just left the hair salon. And the best thing is no effort at all! I have never been the best person at styling hair, but this tool...this bad boy sure worked magic!!! I'm 100% satisfied with it. My hair looks healthier, shinier, and feels softer to the touch. I am never going to use a flat iron again!! Thank you Revlon!" —Amazon Customer

    Price: $29.39+ (originally $59.99; available in four colors)

    35% off Bluetooth and Alexa-enabled Bose QuietComfort Series II wireless headphones if you're tired of construction, noisy neighbors, and city sounds ruining your concentration at work.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Unbelievably happy with this product. I cannot live without out my Bose QC 35 II's (even considering a second one to keep at work). It is empowering to put these on and all the noise pollution just goes away. I bought them for home and hadn't planned on taking them to my large open floor office. I put them on and suddenly realized there was a very low and loud humm coming from the ceiling (air blowers I assume). Now gone. I sit there in my cubicle and feel sorry for everyone else because they don't have a pair of these. I tried other brands, but they were simply not properly engineered. Once you get the pairing "dialed in" it is seamless. I have a Mac and iPhone but bought the new model (with Google voice button). I use the button's alternate function of turning on/off noise cancellation — just for fun to remind me how great this product works. But remember.. this technology is not going to isolate voices — it is designed to remove motor noises (plane, furnace blower, road, engine, etc)." —Claveman

    Price: $199 (originally $299; available in three colors)

    41% off a bidet attachment that'll change the way you feel about toilet paper. Hear us out, TP can only get so good; ultimately you're still wiping your butt with a piece of paper (and creating more environmental waste). With a bidet, you can save on toilet paper and enjoy the feeling of a machine cleaning your bum — and that is one job I am happy to let the robots have.

    The bidet attached to a toilet
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Me and the wife tried it for the first time this morning and let me tell you, on a winter morning such as today it's a shocker because the water is very cold. But that being said, the item works well and cleans any soil from your posterior very well leaving you feeling pretty refreshed afterwards and maybe a little cold as well. LOL. I would recommend this to family and friends in the future and we are very happy with our purchase and are debating on purchasing another for our second bathroom!" —J

    Price: $34.99 (originally $59)

    46% off a Furbo, a treat-tossing pet camera so you can keep an eye on your pet even when you're not home. With its 160-degree wide-angle view, night vision, and real-time barking alerts you'll know exactly what your pup is up to.

    The Furbo
    Amazon

    Promising review: "I bought this item for my girlfriend who is deployed overseas in Bahrain. She loves her dog more than anything so I knew this would be a perfect gift for her. The first night I had the Furbo I was awaken several times in the middle of the night by high pitched squealing and giggling of glee from my gf not being able to contain herself. She was so excited to see him, talk to him and give him treats and OH BOY does she like giving him treats! By the time she gets back from her deployment I am sure he will be overweight and wont be able to run to her when she gets home. Thanks Furbo, your product is awesome and we all love it!" —Alex Batlle

    Price: $133.99 (originally $249)

    Or 20% off a mountable pet-monitoring camera to ensure your naughty fur babies stay out of trouble. It comes with 1080p HD video, 30-foot night vision, built-in live chat so you can consult a vet 24/7, motion alerts, and two-way communication.

    Amazon

    Price: $39.99 (originally $49.99)

    20% off a a painless, mint-flavored teeth-whitening pen that'll be a heck of a lot quicker (and taste a lot better) than those whitening strips that have to sit on your teeth for 20 minutes. Just let it sit for 30 seconds and you're good to go; no more pushing back your bed time for a whitening strip. You can use each pen ~20 times and should expect your teeth to lighten four to eight shades.

    Promising review: "I’ve tried Crest strips without any noticeable improvement. My dentist offers free whitening, but that stuff is so harsh it blisters my gums on contact. The AsaVea whitening pen is the best whitening product I’ve ever used! I’ve had noticeable whitening in about a week, and it doesn’t irritate my gums. I only wish I took 'before' and 'after' pics!" —MDR

    Price: $15.96 for a two-pack (originally $19.99)

    33% off a Kindle with a front light so you can read late into the night. Or pair it with your headphones and to use Audible through Bluetooth and drift off to sleep hearing your favorite bedtime stories.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Honestly I’ve always been so skeptical of Kindles because I’m someone who loves to hold a book in my hand and turn the pages. The only thing I always hate about books is trying to find a decent book light that worked well. So therefore once I saw that the basic Kindle has a built in backlight I had to give it a try. I’m really glad I did because I already love it! It’s extremely light weight and there are so many books to choose from in the prime store. Surprisingly the screen doesn’t hurt my eyes even after reading for hours. The battery is great too! I’ve been using it all weekend and have only charged it once and it still doesn’t need a charge. All in all for the price of this you really can’t go wrong...as an avid book reader the built in back light makes it worth it." —Nicolle

    Price: $59.99 (originally $89.99)

    15% off a Keurig K-Cafe coffee maker that really pulls out all the stops — not only does it brew regular coffee through K-cups, it also can make coffee shots, and comes with a built in milk frother (!!) so you can have coffee, iced coffee, lattes, *and* cappuccinos to your caffeinated heart's delight.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This is just what I needed! I only drink a cup of coffee a day — it’s usually a latte or mocha. I got a universal filter, I use my favorite Starbucks coffee and I get two espresso shots per use. The milk foamer is perfect — I’ve used half/half, heavy whipping cream, and almond milk — so far no issues with that. I get nice foam with all three. Totally worth what I paid for it — in the long run I will save money and this machine will have paid for itself!" —jlightfritz

    Price: $169.99 (originally $199.99)

    Up to 40% off a nail grinder if you want your wood floors and furniture to remain free of scratch marks. It'll trim your pup's claws to an acceptable length so they don't leave behind gouges in your beautiful oak flooring. Plus it's super quiet and smooth, which is ideal for dogs who get spooked by regular nail clippers.
