Away, the maker of our favorite carry-on of all time, is running a very rare sale for Black Friday this year, with up to 40% taken off some of its bestsellers. We’re particularly smitten by this carry-on, which has a front pocket that can conveniently hold your laptop for TSA.

Nintendo Switch Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Bundle ($299, originally $369; walmart.com, bestbuy.com)
Cyber Week is always a great time to snag a Nintendo Switch or some discounted games and accessories, and that’s especially true this year. Nintendo’s beloved home console is finally somewhat easy to find again after a year of shortages. On top of getting you Mario Kart 8 Deluxe — an excellent kart racer that just about every Switch owner should have anyway — this bundle also includes three months of Nintendo Switch Online. That will allow you to play games online right out of the box while also getting you access to cloud saves and a sizable library of NES and SNES classics, including The Legend of Zelda and Super Mario World.
Oculus Quest 2 ($299.99, originally $329; amazon.com)
The Oculus Quest 2 isn’t just an excellent virtual reality headset — it’s also one of our favorite gaming platforms overall and doubles as a great way to work up a sweat. The Oculus Quest 2 lets you access tons of immersive games, workout experiences and entertainment apps, and you can get it with a free $50 gift card right now. If you’re is into gaming, you should also consider our favorite gaming chair, the Homall Gaming Chair, which is also on sale.
Apple Watch SE ($219, originally $279; amazon.com)
Don’t want or need all the bells and whistles of the Apple Watch Series 7? Then the Apple Watch SE is the way to go. It will track your sleep, track your workouts and monitor your heart, all while letting you install apps and use it as a miniature iPhone.
Moon Pod ($299, originally $399; moonpod.com)
We love this zero-gravity lounging blob, and for Black Friday you can get it for a whopping 25% off, or $100 off. If you like the idea of hanging out on a cloud, this is for you.
Sony WF-1000XM4 Noise-Canceling Wireless Earbuds ($248, originally $279.99; amazon.com)
Snag our pick for best noise-canceling earbuds now while they’re at this rare low price at Amazon. In testing, we found the Sony WF-1000XM4 were able to block even the most stubborn noises, with 11 different modes of noise cancellation, one of which we found was able to shut out the world completely. They also had the longest runtime of any earbuds we tested, meaning you’ll be charging them less.
Echelon Smart Connect Fitness Bike ($399.99, originally $499.99; amazon.com)
Bring the spin studio into your home with $100 off this Echelon bike, the lowest price we’ve seen. It boasts 32 levels of resistance and comes with access to live and on-demand classes (that aren’t just limited to biking).
Treadly 2 Pro ($849, originally $949; treadly.co)
Another workout device that’s 100% worth the splurge is this Treadly. It’s a foldable, portable treadmill that our reviewer absolutely loved. You can take your pick between the Treadly Basic, which is more, well, basic, as it comes with a remote rather than app connectivity, or the Treadly Pro, which is what we tested and loved.
Theragun Elite ($299, originally $399; amazon.com and therabody.com)
Give sore muscles some relief at home with the popular Theragun Elite. This percussive massage device is up to 75% quieter than the previous generation of the model, and it gets up to 60% deeper than average massagers, so you get every bit of benefit possible. Read our review of Theraguns here.
Vitamix Blenders (starting at $289.95; amazon.com)

iRobot Roomba i6+ Robot Vacuum ($549, originally $799.99; amazon.com)
This Roomba has hardcore suction; it’s great for pet owners, thanks to a filter that traps 99% of allergens; it has voice assistant functionality; and it even empties itself. You’ll save $250 on this Amazon deal, which isn’t — unlike the dust it will hoover — anything to sneeze at.
Casper Original Mattress ($876, originally $1,095; casper.com)
Casper’s most popular mattress is 20% off through Cyber Monday. Made of an all-foam construction, the second-best thing about it is that it easily ships to you in a box. The most important thing is just how comfortable and durable it is.

Onsen Complete Set ($105, originally $150; onsentowel.com)

This do-it-all crafting machine is great for those who are homeschooling their kids during Covid (the art portion of the day just got way easier) as well as hobby card makers, sewers and designers of all sorts. It comes with blades that cut through fabric (including leather) super easily, and an X-Acto-style blade for materials like balsa wood and mat board.
Le Creuset Enameled Cast-Iron Signature Sauteuse Oven ($179.95, originally $300; amazon.com)
