Best Cyber Week Deals
CR's found the best discounts on TVs and other tech, as well as mattresses and other home products
Black Friday and Cyber Monday are over, but that doesn't mean you can't still save when you shop. The week after Cyber Monday is known as Cyber Week, and retailers including Walmart, Target, Best Buy, Costco, and Amazon continue to offer discounts all the way up to the next holidays.
This covers every category, from popular gift items such as televisions, headphones, vacuums, cookware, and small kitchen appliances to big-ticket items like large appliances and mattresses. The prices may not always be quite as impressive as they were last weekend, but it's still better than paying full price, especially when the product is top-quality.
Consumer Reports is tracking top Cyber Week deals on highly rated products at several retailers to help you shop smarter this holiday season. Check out our tips for how to get the best deals. And keep in mind that deals have been selling out, so if you see something you want, don't wait to buy or you could miss a chance to save.
Go to Consumer Reports’ Holiday Gift Guide for updates on deals, expert product reviews, insider tips on shopping, and much more.
Hisense 43-Inch 4K H55-Series Android Smart TV
We didn’t test this set, but in general, entry-level Hisense 4K TVs have done fairly well for picture quality, though not for HDR (high dynamic range), in Consumer Reports testing. Like other Android TVs, it has Chromecast and Google Assistant built in.
Samsung 65-Inch TU7000-Series 4K Smart TV
We tested this 65-inch 4K smart TV from Samsung, an entry-level model in the company’s mainstream 4K TV lineup for 2020. It’s a decent overall performer, though like many lower-priced sets this size, its HDR performance is ineffective. It’s currently out of stock at Walmart, but it’s possible the retailer will restock.
CR’s test results: Samsung UN65TU7000 4K smart TV
LG 70-Inch 4K Smart TV
This entry-level 4K tested well for overall picture quality, better than many other entry-level LG sets this year. LG’s 2020 sets support a new Filmmaker Mode, which automatically puts the TV into a setting that reflects how the director intended it to be viewed.

Microsoft Surface Pro 7 (Core i5) Laptop
With fast processing speeds and a convenient touch screen, the Surface Pro 7 does very well in our tests. It has been on sale for around $800 since late summer but has hovered between $740 and $755 in the past few weeks. Keep in mind that the keyboard, which detaches so that you can use the touch screen as a tablet, costs an additional $130.

Lenovo 11.6-Inch Chromebook Flex 3
This is a nice option for anyone in need of a Chromebook for browsing the web and doing simple productivity tasks. Thanks to the convertible design, you can also fold the touch-screen display behind the keyboard to use the device like a tablet. A similar model performed well enough in our labs to earn a recommendation from our testers, and this one has even better specs: a MediaTek processor, 4GB of memory, and 32GB of flash storage.

Apple AirPods Pro True Wireless Headphones
Beats Beats Solo Pro Noise-Canceling Headphones
These noise-canceling headphones are usually a little too expensive to justify their performance, but they’re a decent deal, and some colors are discounted as low as $180 right now. The Solo Pro Wireless gets an above-average rating for sound quality in our tests, and the noise cancellation is superb. Before you pick them up, though, you may want to check out other noise-canceling options available for $200 or less.
CR’s test results: Beats Solo Pro noise-canceling headphones
Sony WH-1000XM4 Over-Ear Headphones
Sony’s flagship noise-canceling headphone is one of the most popular models on the market, and it does well in CR’s tests. It was $20 less for Black Friday and Cyber Monday, but this is still a great price. We give it high marks for sound quality, and it performs even better at blocking out unwanted noise from your environment. It has touch controls, adjustable levels of noise cancellation, a generous battery life, and a slew of other features.

Polk Audio MagniFi Mini Sound Bar
This 2.1-channel sound bar speaker system—a smaller sibling to the Polk MagniFi Max SR, also in our ratings—has good overall sound quality. It’s a decent choice for casual listeners for both movie soundtracks and music. Living up to its name, the Mini’s main enclosure is quite small—just over a foot long, and only 3 inches high. It has built-in Bluetooth for streaming from a phone or tablet, and it’s Google-friendly, with built-in Chromecast for streaming music from the cloud, and support for the voice-powered Google Assistant.
As of Monday morning, Amazon was out of stock until January, so you’ll need to choose a different retailer if you want to give this as a gift.

Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K
Yes, the 4K version of Amazon’s Fire TV Stick costs just $2 more than the HD version during this sale. And it offers a nice array of content and features, including voice control and support for Dolby Vision HDR and HDR10+, for the price. Bonuses include the ability to control it from Alexa-enabled devices such as the Echo or Dot and the included remote, which can be used to control power and volume on many TVs and sound bar speakers.
CR’s test results: Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K streaming device
Roku Streaming Stick+
This 4K stick-style player is at the lowest price we’ve seen. Features include a wireless receiver with improved range and an enhanced voice remote that lets you use voice commands for search and other functions; it can also control your TV.

Avocado Green (Queen)
Avocado, the maker of our top-rated innerspring mattress, is offering two free pillows if you use the code 2FREEPILLOWS with the purchase of any mattress.
The brand is also offering $200 off its new all-latex mattress through Dec. 7 with the code CYBER200. (CR hasn't tested this model but plans to soon.)
The queen-sized Avocado Green mattress earns Excellent ratings in our support tests for average-sized side and back sleepers, large/tall side and back sleepers, and petite back sleepers, and it’s almost as good for petite side sleepers, making it an all-around good choice for many mattress shoppers.
CR’s test results: Avocado Green innerspring mattress
GhostBed GhostBed (Queen)
This online-only mattress-in-a-box retailer is offering a discount on its namesake GhostBed. The company is throwing in two free pillows on top of the 30 percent discount. Amazon has the same mattress for $50 less but without the pillows. Shipping is free for Prime members, but the mattress doesn’t qualify for two-day shipping, so check the estimated arrival date before you order. The queen-size GhostBed does well in our tests for supporting petites who sleep on their back, and it earns top marks for durability, which means it shows little change in performance after about eight years of simulated use in our tests.
CR’s test results: GhostBed The GhostBed foam mattress
Serta Perfect Sleeper Hybrid Mattress (Queen)
The Serta Perfect Sleeper mattress combines innersprings and gel-infused memory foam, and based on our tests is a decent choice for almost any type of sleeper. This mattress usually sells for around $1,000, so you’re getting $100 off.

iRobot Roomba 960
Though this vacuum isn’t the latest generation, it has held strong in the top tier of our ratings for three years. The sale price is $200 less than what you’d typically pay—and the lowest we’ve seen to date. This model earns a standout rating in our bare-floors test and also does a superb job cleaning carpet, though you might have a little difficulty cleaning pet hair out of the brush roller.
CR’s test results: iRobot Roomba 960 robotic vacuum
Hoover Onepwr Blade Max Stick Vacuum
The cordless Hoover Onepwr Blade Max is an impressive performer in CR’s tests, earning top-notch scores for cleaning bare floors and removing pet hair, and it holds its own on carpet. Plus it zips along the edges of a room, leaving little or nothing behind. The battery has a run time of just over 26 minutes, is replaceable, and can be used with any tool in Hoover’s Onepwr suite of products.

Cuisinart Green Gourmet Hard Anodized GG-12 Cookware
This cookware set is one of the top nonstick sets CR has put to the test, and it’s about $50 less than usual in a few places right now. It aces all of CR’s key cooking tests, including evenness and food release. Sauces stay at a low simmer, and the 6-quart Dutch oven quickly brings water to a near-boil. Nonstick durability is a notch below the top. This anodized aluminum set is dishwasher-safe and oven-safe to 500° F. (If you’re ordering from Amazon, be sure to select the box for the on-page coupon to take an additional $49 off the price.)
CR’s test results: Cuisinart Green Gourmet Hard Anodized GG-12 cookware
Staub Cocotte Dutch Oven
The Staub Cocotte holds 5.5 quarts and is one of the more expensive Dutch ovens in our tests. It earns a solid rating in our browning test, but it’s worth noting that the pot’s dark interior makes it trickier to see whether meat is browning—and to tell just how clean the pot is after washing. It weighs 13 pounds, and the cooking surface is 8 inches in diameter.

Coffee Makers & Small Appliances
Keurig K-Select Pod Coffee Maker
If you enjoy crafting specialty coffee drinks like lattes and macchiatos, you’ll love the Ninja Specialty CM401. This drip machine features a built-in milk frother and over-ice and specialty brew modes so you can create any kind of coffee drink you desire. It offers exceptional brew performance in our tests, and its carafe is easy to hold and pour. (If you purchase this at Kohl’s, use the code THANKS to get the discount.)

Chefman Anti-Overflow Belgian Waffle Maker
At full price, this waffle maker was designated a CR Best Buy because of its great performance and low price. Today, you can get it at 20 percent off. This model lets you adjust the level of browning, so you can have either light and fluffy waffles or brown and crispy waffles. It has an indicator that alerts you when waffles are ready and a batter cup for exact portioning.
CR's test results: Chefman Anti-Overflow Belgian Waffle Maker
SodaStream Fizzi Soda Maker
The SodaStream Fizzi was already the best budget soda maker in Consumer Reports’ tests before its price was slashed by as much as 49 percent. The Fizzi scores almost as well as the top model in our ratings (the Fizzi One Touch) for making seltzer with a consistent amount of bubbles. It’s among the easiest soda makers to use, too: Insert your bottle top in a clamp, push the clamp into place, and push start.
The Fizzi’s bottle caps stay on well when the contents are under pressure. The CO2 injector sits at the top of the water line, so gas entering the bottle doesn’t freeze the water in the nozzle and ice up the works, a problem for some soda makers. You can customize the amount of fizz in your soda simply by pressing the button for longer or shorter times.
If ordering from Kohl’s, you’ll need to enter the code YOUGET20 at checkout to get this discounted price.

Kenmore Side-by-Side Refrigerator
Looking for a stylish stainless steel side-by-side? This 36-inch model offers strong performance in our temperature tests and is quite energy-efficient. The only downside is that it doesn’t offer many features compared with the competition. Aside from its finish, this fridge’s only notable feature is a through-the-door water/ice dispenser. But if you’re looking only for the basics, this fridge will suit you well.
CR’s test results: Kenmore 51335 side-by-side refrigerator
LG French-Door Refrigerator
Pining for a French-door but worry about the price? The LG LFCS22520S is a great option. This 30-inch model costs less than many side-by-sides and bottom-freezers. It also performs quite well in our temperature tests and runs very quietly. The stainless steel fridge has an icemaker, half shelves for better organization, spillproof shelves, and digital controls.

GE Gas Range
The GE JGB735SPSS is a feature-packed gas range with plenty of bells and whistles. It has five burners, including two high-power burners, as well as a built-in griddle. It has a convection oven mode and a steam clean setting for smaller messes inside the oven cavity. In our tests, it offers solid performance all-around.
CR’s test results: GE JGB735SPSS gas range
Frigidaire Electric Smoothtop Range
The Frigidaire FFEH3054US is a great deal for a slide-in smoothtop range. Slide-ins tend to be pricier than their freestanding counterparts, but this model can be snagged for under $800. In addition to its sleek, built-in look, this model offers strong performance, two high-power burners, and a stovetop warming element.

GE HE Top-Loader
This high-efficiency top-loader lives up to the name: It does very well in tests for energy and water efficiency. It earns a solid rating in our washing tests, too. Like other washers of its type, though, it’s somewhat noisy and rough on clothes. The cycle time for its most aggressive normal wash is a relatively pokey 75 minutes. Predicted reliability for GE front-loaders is average, but owner satisfaction is below average.

LG Front-Load Washing Machine
The WiFi-enabled LG WM9000HVA is among the highest-rated front-loaders in CR’s tests, though even at a discount it’s pricier than competing top performers. Washing, energy efficiency, and water efficiency are all excellent. It’s very gentle with clothes, and relatively quiet, so you can install it in a living area with confidence that the noise won’t overwhelm. As with all LG front-load washers, it earns a top mark for predicted reliability and scores very well with owners for satisfaction.
