If you’ve been lucky enough to get hold of a PlayStation 5 recently or you’re keen to enjoy even more games for your existing PlayStation 4, you need a PS Plus membership. Right now is the perfect time to buy it from Best Buy. Reduced from $60 to $40, you’re saving a huge $20 off a year’s worth of PS Plus if you buy today. You really should. Read on while we explain all the wonders of PlayStation Plus. This is truly one of the best Cyber Monday deals for PlayStation owners, working out at only $3.33 per month.

If you’re wondering what is PlayStation Plus, you’ve been missing out all this time. Sony’s service has been around for over a decade and it has evolved substantially in that time. It provides you with plenty of perks and benefits at a low price. At its simplest, but potentially greatest, it gives you free games. Each month, Sony announces what new games are coming to the service. Typically, these are a mixture of PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 games. Of course, if you own a PlayStation 5, you can still play all the PlayStation 4 games too. All you have to do is select them in the PlayStation store, maybe download them, and that’s it. They’re yours for as long as you have a PlayStation Plus membership. If your membership lapses, simply resubscribe (such as via this deal) to regain them.

PlayStation 5 members also have access to the PS Plus Collection. A list is full of PS4 games including Bloodborne, God of War, Infamous Second Son, and many other major titles, so you can enjoy catching up on some classic PS4 games on your new console. It’s a pretty special list that includes both first-party and third-party games.

PlayStation Plus goes further than just free games though. It also gives you the chance to play other games online. Some games don’t require PS Plus to play online but the majority do, and having a PlayStation Plus membership means you don’t have to think twice about teaming up with your buddies. You can simply get on with having plenty of fun whenever you want to.

On top of all that functionality, you also get substantial discounts in the digital PS Store. Sometimes, it’s only an extra 10% off (but that’s sure to add up over time) but other times, you can save a huge chunk of change by being a PS Plus member. And occasionally, these discounts also apply to pre-orders of the latest games. In the past, subscribers were able to save a fortune on Hitman 3 — Deluxe Edition, for instance. If you’re a regular gamer, those savings soon add up and work out that your membership pays for itself in barely any time at all.

Is that enough for you? Well, there’s more! PS Plus members also gain access to cloud storage. That way, you can store all your files on the cloud meaning you’re not dependent on physical storage for preserving all your save games. You get 100GB of storage which should be more than enough for most players. All you need to do is switch auto-syncing on and the console and membership does all the hard work for you. Finally, other perks emerge too over time. These can be exclusive in-game content, exclusive avatars and themes, or even simply free shipping when ordering a PS5 directly from Sony.

Ordinarily priced at $60, you can snap up a 12-month PS Plus membership for just $40 at Best Buy right now. It’s a truly fantastic deal for avid gamers. You won’t want to miss out.

Some Cyber Monday deals may be available after today, but as of midnight tonight, you can count on the prices of Amazon Echo smart devices snapping right back to the full list price. Whether you look on Amazon or Best Buy, the deal prices will disappear. That being said, today, there are some truly attractive Cyber Monday Amazon Echo deals to be had; just don't forget until tomorrow. Best Buy's Cyber Monday $170 sale price for the Amazon Echo Show 15 smart display cuts $80 off the $250 full price. If you want the current best smart display available, buy it today while you can still save.

Why you should buy the Amazon Echo Show 15
Our Amazon Echo Show 15 review praised the 15.6-inch diagonal measure display on the Show 15, but a large screen alone isn't the whole story. The Show 15 supports multiple widgets, a class of utilities for notes, tasks, lists, schedules, photos, weather, maps, and more that can be pasted and moved around the display by family members. Because the Show 15's display real estate is relatively large, there's enough room for a generous selection of widgets. You can mount the Show 15 in landscape or portrait mode, depending on your wall space and personal preference. With an optional stand for the display, you also can place it on a table, cabinet, or desk.

Now’s the perfect time to stock up on PS5 controllers

The PlayStation 5's DualSense is one of my favorite video game controllers of all time. That's thanks to its unique touches like haptic feedback and adaptive triggers, which genuinely change the way I experience games. There's a downside to all those bells and whistles though: It's wildly expensive. If a stick begins to drift or you simply want a second one for multiplayer games, be prepared to spend $70 -- or more, if you want it in a different color.

If you've found yourself pining over a new DualSense, today's the day to strike. Best Buy is currently running one of the best deals on PS5 controllers since the console launched, with all versions of the gamepad down to $50.

You can work your abs, back, shoulders, arms, legs, glutes, and chest with a good rower. With the Echelon smart rower, you sit on the sliding seat designed for rowing form and correct hip and spine alignment. Put your smartphone or tablet in the built-in device holder, and you can just row.
