Walmart Cyber Week
Walmart has several electronics-bundle deals. For $85, the retailer is offering the Canon PowerShot SX160 IS with an 8GB SDHC memory card. This point-and-shoot is a good option for the shutterbug who enjoys shooting landscapes as well as indoor get-togethers. It's also lightweight and has a great image stabilizer, which is important when photographing images using the zoom.
The Garmin Nuvi 50LM GPS is a good option for first-time navigation-system owners. It's easy to use and features lane assistance and a trip computer. For $100 the Nuvi 50LM comes bundled with lifetime map updates and a friction mount that rests on the dashboard.
Both of these products ship for free, and Walmart is adding new deals daily.
Target Cyber Week Sale
Move fast, because Target's deals won't last long: This retailer is offering only limited quantities of its sale items. And when you spend more than $50 on select items, shipping is free. The sale ends Dec. 7.
Looking for a quality pair of on-ear headphones for a decent price? Then the Beats by Dre Solo HD (Consumer Reports recommended) for $140 are the way to go. Although these cans lack active noise reduction, the closed design helps reduce outside noise and sound leaking out into your environment.
Save $60 on the Nikon Coolpix S5200 digital camera. Available in four fun colors, the $120 point-and-shoot is Wi-Fi enabled, takes 3D photos, and shoots video in full 1920 x 1080 HD quality.
But if you’re looking for something with nearly twice the optical zoom, consider the 16-megapixel Canon PowerShot SX170 IS, a later model than the SX160 sold at Walmart (mentioned above). Both perform well, but the SX170’s battery lasts twice as long, and the camera weighs 2 ounces less.
Amazon Cyber Monday Deals Week
Not to be outdone by walk-in retailers, Amazon is offering "limited time" and "lightning" deals around the clock for the holiday-shopping season. Its electronics deals offer savings such as 20 percent off tablets and 40 percent off home-theater systems. But at less than $150, the headphones stand out.
Serious audiophiles should take a peek at the Monster DNA (Consumer Reports recommended) on-ear headphones. For $115, these not only sound good, but are graphically striking as well. They feature triangular-shaped earcups and are being sold in 11 colors. At 50 percent savings for the Black Tuxedo model, they’re a great deal.
At a much lower price, take a look at the Audio-Technica ATH-ANC23 in-ear headphones. Listed at $45, these noise-canceling headphones come with four pairs of earpieces in various types and sizes so your ears remain comfortable. They're also sold with a carrying pouch and a mini-plug-to-airplane-jack adapter.
