2. Under $25: One of our favorite electric tea kettles
If tea is your thing, you may want to consider ditching your traditional stovetop kettle for a top-tier electric one. We tested tons of electric tea kettles, and the Hamilton Beach electric tea kettle was one of our favorites—we named it our best value pick. Although this model doesn't have temperature controls, it impressed us with its affordability, functionality and compact design. In testing, the boiler heated one liter of water in just over four minutes, one of the fastest boiling times of any other machine we tried. Usually priced at $34.99, you can take home this kitchen countertop essential for just $24.88 right now.

5. Under $50: One of our favorite e-readers
Looking for the perfect holiday gift for the book worm in your life? Right now you can take home the Amazon Kindle, one of the best Kindles we've ever tested, for just $49.99—a 44% price cut off the usual $49.99 tag. In testing, we were impressed with this Kindle's affordability and display lighting, although, ultimately, we found that the display could result in eye strain after several hours of use. Although the Kindle Paperwhite ($139.99) takes the spot for our favorite Kindle, this basic model is still a top-notch choice. Reviewed's senior editor Séamus Bellamy described the device as "a capable e-reader that will allow you to read on the go no matter the lighting conditions."

What's the difference between Amazon Black Friday deals and Amazon Cyber Monday deals?
With Amazon Black Friday deals already here, the early holiday sales double as both Black Friday discounts and pre-Cyber Monday deals. While, technically, Amazon Cyber Monday deals roll out as soon as Black Friday ends on November 26, we expect to see significant overlap in Amazon's roundup of Black Friday and Cyber Monday markdowns. Both waves of holiday deals will be exclusively available online, so be sure to secure your Amazon Prime membership ahead of time to enjoy fast and free shipping.
Does Amazon have special Black Friday deals for Amazon Prime members?
Yes. During the holiday shopping season, Amazon Prime members have early access to select holiday deals and can even earn up to 25% back on select Amazon purchases with an Amazon Prime Card and an eligible Prime membership. Meanwhile, Prime members can get their holiday gifts quicker with access to free and fast shipping, with millions of must-have items available for same-day delivery. If you aren't already an Amazon Prime member, don't worry—there's still plenty of time to sign up.
When does the Amazon Black Friday sale end?
The Amazon Black Friday sale ends on November 26, with Amazon Cyber Monday deals rolling out the following day, on November 27. Keep in mind, however, that many of the markdowns included in the Amazon Black Friday sale are one-day deals.
Following the Black Friday and Cyber Monday weekend of sales, we expect to see discounts on select items throughout the holiday season—however, with shipping delays and stock shortages expected, we recommend shopping early to ensure you get all the holiday gifts on your list this year.
