We’ve rounded up all of the best deals on Nov. 18 — here are our top picks:


The countdown is on — Black Friday is a mere seven days away, dear friends. That means the deals are truly popping off.

Amazon officially dropped its device deals and they are epic. Most devices are even cheaper than they were during last month’s Prime Day 2 — and that’s saying something. You can get the brand-new Echo Dot (5th Gen)(opens in a new tab) for half-off or the new Fire 7 tablet(opens in a new tab) for 33% off. And that’s just the jumping off point. There’s plenty more deals worth adding to your cart on Nov. 18.

From half-priced Paramount+ subscriptions to the lowest prices ever on Mac devices and Ninja Foodis, you don’t need to wait until Black Friday proper to score the best deals. Start checking off your list today — we’ve rounded up all the deals worth shopping on Nov. 18.

Best streaming deal

Why we like it

Whether you’re looking to get in on the Tulsa King hype, watch your local team crush its opponents via NFL ON CBSor set yourself up to watch Criminal Minds: Evolution the day it premieres, you’re going to need a Paramount+ subscription. And lucky for you, now’s a great time to get on the train, since annual subscriptions are 50% off for both new and returning subscribers. You can join as an Essential member for only $24.99 (reg. $49.99) with limited ads or cut ads out all together (and get even more content) with a Premium subscription for $49.99 (reg. $99.99). After the year is up, your membership will renew at full price — so be sure to cancel ahead of time if you don’t want to be charged. Hurry, as this deal is only live until Nov. 19.

Best computer deal

Why we like it

A device for creators or a family computer? Why not both? The 27-inch iMac from 2020 wasn’t a major game-changer, but does include a more powerful processor, more storage options, and a high-quality webcam (finally). The base model — which houses a 3.1GHz six-core 10th-generation Intel Core i5 processor and 256GB of SSD storage — is a solid choice as “your family computer for schoolwork, Zoom calls, and streaming movies,” Mashable’s Brenda Stolyar wrote in her review. She also noted that there is not much to complain or rave about with this computer. But with the $1,199.99 price tag ($599 off its usual cost), we’re definitely raving now.

Amazon device deal

Why we like it

Not only is the third-generation Echo Dot at its lowest price ever, but you can also grab a second one for free when you enter the code FREEDOT22 at checkout. That means you get two Echo Dot smart speakers for just $15 — a $65 discount — and create a stereo sound experience in your home. Or, of course, you can gift one to someone else this holiday season without spending a dime. While the 2018 Echo Dot doesn’t have the most advanced sound on the market, former Mashable tech editor Pete Pachal found that it “turns its entry-level Alexa product from a merely passable audio experience into something much more pleasing to the ear.”
