Trains, Robots, Receivers and More! Amazon’s Black Friday Deals are Here!

Daily Deal Gadgets


We agree that the number of retail stores actually opening their doors today for “pre-Black-Friday” sales is distressing. After all, isn’t this what the Internet was created for? Stay home, nibble on the leftover stuffing while other family members watch football, and get some of your holiday shopping done online!

Amazon is, of course, ramping up the quantity and quality of deals for the season. Here are a few we thought would appeal to our readers:

A wide selection of Lionel trains! You know you want a Polar Express set for under the tree! Save up to 50% on select Lionel Train Sets here.

Instead of a robot company trying to make a robot vacuum, how about a vacuum company making a robot vacuum? By the reviews, they did a pretty good job, too. Get the Bissel SmartClean robot vacuum for just $210.

And if it’s time to improve the sounds of your season, how about a Yamaha 7.2-channel surround sound receiver with Airplay, and all the bells and whistles? You can save over 50%, and get it for just $300 today.
