Normally $50, you can pick up the Amazon Echo Auto for just $15 on Amazon today. That’s an impressive savings of $35. The Echo Auto brings Alexa to your car, so you can ask Alexa to play your favorite road trip tracks, get the news, make calls, set reminders, and much more. It comes with a handy vent mount and connects to the Alex app to play sound through your car speakers or your phone’s Bluetooth connection — but it doesn’t work with all cars and phones, so check the compatibility list on the product page before purchasing this deal. Best of all, you won’t have to shout, as the Echo Auto has eight mics and uses far-field technology, so it can hear you even with the A/C cranked up full on a busy road.

A basic set of power tools is a necessity for every household, because you never know when you'll need any of them. If you don't have one yet, or if you want to upgrade from a rusty set, you should take a look at the ongoing Cyber Monday deals for bargains. To help you out, we've rounded up our favorite deals below.

One thing to note is that many of the tools below require rechargeable batteries to join.
