4 Black Friday deals that you'll instantly regret missing out on

 As other Black Friday deals start today and open tomorrow, it's not easy to decide where to check out. Thousands of lifestyles and thousands of people on the streets, each salesperson doing something a little different to try and stand out. Often times, you won't have the time or opportunity to look around and try to settle for a few essential offers.

But do not worry. This is where our team came in. We've been reviewing Black Friday deals for years and know the models, what to consider and what to avoid. There's no shortage of great products this year, but we've narrowed down some of the best deals that will appeal to everyone, and you should consider buying one.

Whether you want an item for yourself or know someone you want to receive as a gift, here are some Black Friday promises you should buy immediately to avoid risking losing or making the wrong Black Friday buy this year.


The Fire TV Stick 4K Max is a new addition to Amazon's Fire TV lineup this year, and while it's priced $10 higher than the regular Fire TV Stick 4K we think that's easily justified by a few of the features. First up, Amazon says that this stick offers up to 40% faster performance, meaning your apps will load faster and the interface will be smoother in general. Additionally, the Max variant supports Wi-Fi 6, which is great if you have a compatible router now, but also makes your new purchase a bit more future proofed.

Odds are that you've heard how great air fryers can be or you've experienced the magic of one first-hand. This option from Bella has an 8-quart capacity, making it great for families and gatherings of friends since you can cook more in it at once. We've been using this model at my house for nearly two years now and have cooked everything from french fries to veggies to steaks and even a turkey breast for our Thanksgiving meal. 

This is a match of the lowest price we've ever seen for this model, so be sure to grab one now before it sells out.

The Apple Watch SE has been a hot item this holiday season, and Best Buy is the first major retailer to have it on sale. The $219 price is for the 40mm mode, but the 44mm model is $60 off as well (selling for $249). These watches come in lots of cool color combinations, but are selling out quickly (some colors are already gone), so we recommend moving fast on this deal. You get six free months of Apple's Fitness Plus service included.


Messes are inevitable, but that doesn't mean that cleaning them up has to be a pain for you. The Shark MopVac is designed to clean all your hard floor surfaces with ease. Whether you spill a cup of water or some crumbs from dinner end up all over the floor, just grab this and clean it all in seconds. The cordless vacuum has a strong suction and just pressing a button helps you clean up sticky messes. 

The pads are disposable so if you have a tough mess, just throw the pad away and replace it with a new one instead of worrying about having another thing to clean.
