We're in that space between Black Friday and Cyber Monday where everyone just assumes the deals are gone. Well, guess what? They aren't. Sure, a lot of the sales we saw yesterday have expired, but many individual deals remain. This is your chance to save big on... Black Saturday! Or Black Friday weekend. Or during the calm before the Cyber Monday storm. Whatever you want to call it. I call it savings.

Echo Dot smart speaker

Amazon's Echo Dot for $22 has survived the Black Friday onslaught suprisingly enough. It continues to be one of the best values on the weekend, and the only color falling behind in the shipping times is the Plum Echo Dot. The price is still good for that one, you'll just have to wait a bit.

Be Heard

Echo Dot speaker

Amazon Echo Dot smart speaker

The Echo Dot is just too convenient to ignore if you have any interest in having a smart speaker. It's small enough to just fit in with any decor, and it's functional enough that you won't need anything larger. Talk to Alexa and get the news or weather or just control the smart lights and plugs around your home.

$22 $50 $28 off

Sonos Beam

The Sonos Beam is designed to be not just a great audio upgrade but a smart one, too. It has Alexa built right in so you can control it with your voice. You could also use the included remote or the free app to get the media you want. Plus, thanks to the Black Friday sales it's $100 off its regular price.

A smarter sound

Sonos Beam

Sonos Beam smart TV sound bar

One thing you'll love about this sound bar is how easy it is to use. Setup takes just minutes since it comes ready to go with only a couple of cords to plug in. And once you've connected the sound bar to your Wi-Fi, you'll be able to access it in a number of different ways.

$299 $399 $100 off

Samsung T5 portable SSD

The Samsung T5 is one of the faster solid state drives you can carry with you. It has always been a very good choice, but the price could often turn people away. Right now the 1TB version is down to $137.99 and the 2TB version is down to $249.99. Those are both the lowest prices we have ever seen for SSDs that normally sell around $170 and $300 respectively.

Speedy Storage

Samsung T5 portable SSD

Samsung T5 1TB portable SSD

The Samsung T5 is sleek and well-made with a durable aluminum casing, and it's crazy fast with read/write speeds up to 540MB/s. I've used it to edit countless 4K video projects, though it's just as good for holding other types of files.

$137.99 $170 $32 off

Roku Ultra

In the world of streaming media players, few can beat the Roku lineup. And within that lineup, few devices do as much as the Roku Ultra. It supports 4K content, HDR, upscaling, and more. You can get the Ultra for just $49.99 at Best Buy. That's half off what it goes for usually and the best deal around right now. Other features include dual-band Wi-Fi, an Ethernet port for a more stable connection, a voice remote, and a headphone jack with a pair of JBL headphones for private listening.

Sweet streams

Roku Ultra

$49.99 $100 $50 off

Google Nest Mini

More of a Google Assistant person than an Amazon Alexa person? Don't worry, we got you. The all-new Google Nest Mini is on sale for Black Friday, and you can get one for just $29. That's a little more expensive than the Echo Dot, but this speaker is newer and a serious upgrade over the previous generation.

Ok Google

Logitech C920S 1080p webcam

The C920S is a great webcam for streaming, conference calls, and other video chats. It records in Full HD 1080p and has both automatic light correction and autofocus. It also captures the natural sound of your voice with dual mics. This price is $20 off what it normally sells for and the lowest we have ever seen.

Just as good as the original C920 but with an extra flap to protect your privacy. You never know who's watching even when you aren't using the camera!

Blue Yeti Nano USB mic

Just plug the Nano in and get it ready to go. This is one of Blue Microphones' newest devices, and Blue is already known for making some outstanding audio gear. The price is $30 off its street price and one of the best deals we've seen. You can get the other colors, but they are $10 more. Pair this mic with a webcam like the C920S above and you've got the start of a solid streaming setup.

AncestryDNA: Genetic Ethnicity Test

These tests are really easy to use, and the $49 price is a match for its all-time low. All you're getting in the mail is a DNA swap that you rub on your cheek and then send to a lab. What you end up getting back is a never-ending number of reports detailing your ethnic origins, historical insights, geographic details, and more. You can compare it with other people in the AncestryDNA database, too, and maybe end up finding relatives you never knew you had.
