Amazon Fire 7 -- $40, was $60

If you want what's arguably the cheapest tablet that's still worth your money, you want a Fire tablet. The Amazon Fire 7 is the cheapest of Amazon's cheap tablets. It's not going to set the world on fire in terms of performance or display quality, but it gives you easy access to tons of apps, you can watch videos and browse the web on it, and -- of course -- it's fine for reading books and magazines. It's not a bad little device to consider getting if you have a Prime account, as it'll let you take full advantage of your membership benefits. If you can up your budget just a bit, though, then the Fire HD 8 might be a better buy.

My favorite iPhone MagSafe in-car holders are Cyber Monday bargains
Belkin BoostCharge Magnetic Wireless Car Charger seen from the side attached to an air vent.

I have always had a problem finding the right in-car holder for my iPhone 14 Pro, not just because the choice of products is so huge but also because I have specific parameters they must meet. I’ve recently found two that work really well for me: the Belkin BoostCharge Magnetic Wireless Car Charger and the Mous MagSafe Suction Mount.

They’re both available at bargain prices for Cyber Monday deals, with the Belkin model priced at $36 and the Mous case at $28, so if you’ve encountered the same problems as I have in the past, these could be for you. If you need a new iPhone too, we've got the best Cyber Monday iPhone deals here.
Not the usual rubbish
So many in-car phone holders are poorly made, ugly, and “universal,” meaning they never look good or always work properly once installed in your car. Many are attached in a way that threatens to damage your car, or aren’t sturdy enough to actually hold on to the phone. I use my iPhone 14 Pro in my cars, and need the holder to be strong enough to cope with hard, sporty suspension, and not spoil the look of my dashboard or car interior when they’re not in use. If it attaches to the air vent, I don’t want to worry about it breaking the vent in the process. If it’s on the windscreen, I don’t want it to get in the way.

Cyber Monday is your last chance to get an iPhone for $99
The front of the iPhone SE (2020).

It's a deal that keeps getting better and better as time passes. You can get an iPhone SE (2020 edition) that is locked to Straight Talk, one of America's best prepaid phone plans, for only $99 at Walmart. That's $50 off of the standard price of the locked phone at $149 and way lower than you'll be able to get an unlocked iPhone SE for, but you need to hurry if you want to avail yourself of it because similar offers are already sold out. Thanks to being part of Cyber Monday phone deals, this is the lowest price yet on this particular phone, but today's your last chance to take advantage of it. There's no other major shopping event remaining this year, so you should buy the iPhone SE now to get it in time for the holidays.
