A lot of people are annoyed with Amazon lately, and the reasons why are fair enough. They aren’t good for independent businesses, especially book stores. The working conditions at their Fulfillment Centres are notoriously bad, and their CEO Jeff Bezos kind of seems like a robot person. Beyond that, they’ve been rolling out some pretty creepy new technology lately, including products that can open your door for you while you’re not home, which seems kind of like a disaster waiting to happen. Despite all of this, Amazon is also probably the best place on the internet to reliably get quality goods for cheap. This is more true than ever on Black Friday, when they’ve got to compete with all of the other online retailers rolling out their incredible deals. With that said, here are some of the best deals you’ll find on Amazon this Black Friday.

Just Dance 2018 (for Xbox One, PS4, Nintendo Switch, Wii U) for $30Honestly, this one is not really the deal for me, as I’m not the kind of guy who likes to dance when he’s playing video games. However, for a 2018, this is a hard deal to pass up. This game usually goes for sixty bucks on the Wii U, so you’re dealing with 50% percent savings here on a game that’s perfect for when you’re entertaining guests. Black Friday may not be a particularly good time to shop for video games, because the odds aren’t great that a game that you really want will be on sale, so you’ve kind of got to take what you can get in that regard.
Olight S MINI Baton 550 Lumens Cree LED Flashlight Torch Power by CR123A / RCR123A 16340 Battery for $56.95
When it comes to Black Friday deals, many people are looking to splash out on things like big TVs, video game consoles, and cameras. However, when the big time deals are on the line, sometimes it can be a good call to stock up on essentials and practical things for your daily life. For example, a flashlight can be a lifesaver in the event of a power outage, and with the increase in wild storms in North America over the past few years due to climate change, you can never be too careful. This Olight flashlight is high quality and includes a saving of around 32% which is hard to beat, if you’re in the market for a flashlight at all.
Kindle Paperwhite E-reader – Black, 6″ High-Resolution Display (300 ppi) with Built-in Light – $89.99
Sticking with Amazon-made products for a minute here, if you’re looking to pick up a new Kindle this Black Friday, they’ve got savings of 25% off on their Paperwhite version this year, which they say is their best selling Kindle of all time. I’ve got a slightly older version of this one, and I love it. It’s sleek and easy to read, and the battery seems to last forever. I probably sound like a bit of a shill here, advising you to buy Amazon products on Amazon, but this truly is the best value on an e-reader that you’re going to find this Black Friday to my knowledge.
Status Audio CB-1 Closed Back Studio Monitor Headphones for $55
I find I’m often buying myself new headphones, as I’m usually guilty of cheapening out instead of just going for something that is high-quality, reliable, and built to last. These Status headphones are a number one best seller in Amazon’s audio section, and they have consistently high reviews. If you match up Amazon’s free shipping with the $24 you’ll save on these headphones this Black Friday, it’s a pretty irresistible deal. Having comfortable, high quality headphones can be the difference between an excellent or a lukewarm media experience, so if you’re looking to upgrade or replace some mid-range headphones, this would be a good option this Black Friday.
