Parrot Swing Drone

Street price: $80; deal price: $60

Our best cheap drone for beginners gets its first notable drop. We wrote, "The Swing is not the fastest drone we've flown, but it is the only inexpensive model that can reliably hold its position in the air even in windy conditions. That makes it easy to fly for even the most inexperienced pilot."

Echo Dot

Street price: $50; deal price: $30

Best price we've seen on the Echo Dot, $5 below previous sales. We wrote, "For a lot less than the full-size Echo, and with the ability to connect wirelessly to your choice of speaker or sound system, the Echo Dot 2 is a smart option."

Sennheiser OCX 686 Wired Workout Headphones

Street price: $75; deal price: $35

A price that matches the low on these workout earbuds, usually around $60. We wrote, "this Sennheiser model is designed to be sweat-proof, and like many workout headphones we looked at, also features "antimicrobial" ear tips, so even if your workout gets nasty, your headphones shouldn't."

Belkin Wemo Mini Smart Switch

Street price: $35; deal price: $25

A few dollars above the Black Friday sale, our pick for best plug-in smart outlet is still worthwhile at $25. We wrote, "It also plays nicely with both iOS and Android smartphones and tablets and integrates easily with popular smart-home protocols and devices."

Logitech HD Webcam C615

Street price: $40; deal price: $31

Our budget webcam, down to the best price we've seen this year. We wrote, "the C615 is just as easy to set up as more expensive picks and has the best video quality of any webcam we tested under $50."

BT2200 Volume Limited Kids' Bluetooth Headphones

Street price: $100; deal price: $80

Our pick for kids headphones down to $80, $20 off, with code Puro20. We wrote, "The Puro BT2200 is our pick because not only do these headphones remain within safe listening levels when used properly, but they were also the top pick of all our kid panelists, which means your little ones will be more likely to use them."

Monoprice Premium 5.1-Ch. Home Theater System 10565

Street price: $180; deal price: $140

Our budget pick in our budget surround system guide, matching the low we've seen for it. We wrote, "The Monoprice system may not be quite as neutral and natural-sounding, but its subwoofer plays a little deeper and voices are a bit more pronounced."

Zagg Rugged Messenger 10.5-Inch iPad Pro Keyboard Case

Street price: $100; deal price: $70

A new low on this rugged versatile keyboard case pick. We wrote, "It's a great choice if you need to keep your iPad Pro safe in rough environments (or even just in the hands of your kids). And the Rugged Messenger's unique design may even win over a few people who don't think they need that kind of protection. "

Mophie Power Capsule

Street price: $30; deal price: $20

A staff pick charging case for Bluetooth earbuds, down to $20, a new low. This battery case keeps your wireless earbuds safe and ensures they're always charged when you get to the gym.

UE Boom 2 Bluetooth Speaker

Street price: $165; deal price: $80

The best price we've seen, nearly dropping down to UE Roll 2 prices. We wrote, "The Boom 2 now has a nice Party Up feature, which lets you play the same audio source through as many Boom 2 and UE Megaboom units as you like. It's a great way to do multiroom sound on the cheap."

Amazon Kindle Paperwhite

Street price: $120; deal price: $90

Only $10 more than the best price we've seen on our favorite ebook reader. We wrote, "The Kindle Paperwhite is light and small, with a side-lit screen that allows you to read in dim lighting. Amazon also offers the most impressive library in terms of scope and price."

Asus Chromebook Flip 302CA

Street price: $475; deal price: $387

A new low on our top Chromebook. We wrote, "It's fast enough for tab-heavy browser work, it provides a full workday of battery life, and it has a small, light body, as well as a comfortable backlit keyboard and a bright screen."

Fire TV Stick Streaming Media Player

Street price: $40; deal price: $25

An all-time low on a surprisingly powerful streaming stick. We wrote, "it includes Amazon's Alexa voice-controlled assistant, letting you make queries far beyond just a movie's title."

Blue Blackout Yeti + Assassin's Creed Origins Streamer Bundle

Street price: $150; deal price: $92

At $92, this bundle is the best value we've seen on this bluetooth mic in years. We wrote, "It makes a wider spectrum of voices sound better than the other microphones we tested, which tend to favor certain tones. Our pick since 2013, the Yeti is solidly built and easier to set up on your desk than most of the competition."

UPDATED WITH ADDITIONS: 1:40PM ET

Echo Dot TP-Link offer

Street price: $80; deal price: $35

While you could get an Echo Dot at $30 on its own, with this deal, you can pay $5 more and get a great smart plug with it to start your home automation. We wrote, "In this smaller package, the Dot gives you all the Alexa control and search features, and it includes a speaker that's good for hearing the Dot's voice and alarms or listening to talk radio."

Eero 3pk Gen 1

Street price: $399; deal price: $279

This is our runner up mesh networking pick with a large and uncommon discount. We wrote, "it blanketed our test environment in usable Wi-Fi and has improved much since we originally tested it in late 2016."

Nest Cam Outdoor

Street price: $175; deal price: $127

This is a new low price on our top outdoor security camera. We wrote, "The camera provides 1080p video, two-way audio, and a mounting system that gives you the capability to point it in any direction. It also has the only weatherproof cord among the units we tested."

DOSS SoundBox Touch

Street price: $34; deal price: $24

Our budget portable Bluetooth speaker selection is back to the previous low, making it an even more affordable pick. We wrote, " It has a fuller, more natural sound than any other model we've tried in its price range, and it plays loud enough to fill a fairly large room."

DJI Mavic Fly More Combo + Newegg Gift Card + Eggpoints

Street price: $1300; deal price: $1150

Here's a great deal on our top drone bundle, plus a $200 Newegg gift card and 11,500 eggpoints. We wrote, "It matches or beats similarly priced competitors in image quality, ease of flight, and autopilot modes, but it really stands out for its portability."

UPDATED WITH ADDITIONS: 3:05PM ET

Logitech G703 Lightspeed Mouse

Street price: $95; deal price: $65

Back in stock at the previous low.

The Logitech G703 is the upgrade and wireless pick in our guide to the best gaming mouse. We wrote, "The Logitech G703 is the best wireless gaming mouse because it's as accurate as a wired mouse, it's the most comfortable one we tested, its six buttons are enough for most people's needs, and it's less expensive than the competition."

Dell Inspiron 15 7000 Gaming Laptop

Street price: $1,000; deal price: $900

This is the first discount we've seen on our upcoming budget gaming laptop pick. We wrote, "It has all-day battery life—a rarity for any gaming laptop—a decent keyboard and trackpad, and a great screen (if you upgrade to the IPS option)."

Street price: $250; deal price: $170

We've almost never seen this drop below $200, making this $170 sale a huge discount.

The Nest Learning Thermostat is our top pick smart thermostat. We wrote, "Ease of use, great design, wide compatibility via the Works with Nest program, and learning capabilities make the Nest the smartest smart thermostat around."

Tile Sport

Street price: $35; deal price: $30

This is the first sale we've seen on one of the new updated picks in our guide to the best bluetooth tracker. We wrote, "The Tile Sport has the best range by far, the loudest alarm, and the largest crowd-finding network for finding your stuff."
