These Shark Lift-Away upright vacuums are on sale up to $120 on Amazon

While we can’t wiggle our way out of doing chores completely, we might as well arm ourselves with the right equipment that would enable us to get the job done right, once and for all. That said, investing in a capable and versatile vacuum from a reputable brand may set you back by a couple hundred bucks but you’ll surely feel the difference when cleaning becomes less of a drag. Right now, you can bank on up to $120 worth of savings as Amazon slashes the prices of two Shark Lift-Away upright vacuums.

Has your furry friend got you constantly sneezing? The Shark Rotator TruePet is equipped with features that will help you manage all that shedding before it gets out of hand. Corded vacuums are known for powerful fade-free suction and the NV752 won’t disappoint with a motorized brush that makes it a solid option for picking up pet hair as well as in cleaning low- to high-pile carpets.

The “Powered Lift-Away” feature simply enhances the NV752’s applicability across all floor types and surfaces with three modes readily accessible on its handle. You’ll instantly get the functionality of an upright, stick, and handheld vacuum for the price of one. With the set of attachments and LED lights on both the handle and motorhead, you’ll be able to see all the dirt hiding in all those nooks and crannies get sucked away.

The last thing we want is to have all that debris blown out of the vacuum and so the Shark Rotator TruePet packs anti-allergen complete seal technology along with HEPA filters to ensure that dust and allergens as small as 0.3 microns stay within its dirt bin. The extra-large capacity of the dust cup would save you from having to empty it numerous times while the 30-foot long cord would provide you enough coverage for a nonstop clean before you have to crouch down and unplug.

Usually priced at $400, you can have Shark’s slick NV752 for just $280 on Amazon plus the chance to knock off $10 more with an approved Amazon Prime Store card.

Shark Apex with Zero-M (AZ1002) — $100 Off

If you’re willing to spend $20 more, you can get the Shark Apex with all the features the Rotator TruePet has and more. At 17.1 pounds, the AZ1002 is on the heavier side compared to other vacuums or to the NV752’s weight of 15.6 pounds. However, you wouldn’t find it unwieldy with dynamic swivel steering still in place at the base of the motorhead. An all-around clean is likewise achievable with three modes of cleaning for powered lift-away, upright, and above the floor.

The Shark Apex is geared with three tools that can be organized in its canister caddy. You’ll also get a break from sneezing since it also has Shark’s anti-allergen complete seal technology, washable filters, and HEPA filters that capture and trap dust and allergens into its 1.5-quart dirt bin.

While these two models are greatly similar, Shark’s Apex steps up with DuoClean technology that employs a dual brush roll system to deep clean carpets as well as deliver a polished look on hard bare floors. And with Zero-M anti-hair wrap, these brush rolls are now capable of cleaning themselves.

The Shark Apex also lists for $400 but with Amazon’s deal, you can clean high and low for $300. You may also qualify to get $50 more in discounts upon approval of an Amazon Rewards Visa card.

This 15-inch Acer laptop is $189 in Amazon’s Black Friday sale
acer aspire vero review 04

There are Black Friday laptop deals on even the best computers out there, but if all you need is a basic device for simple tasks, you should be going for a budget option like the Acer Aspire 1. Originally priced at $230, it's currently even cheaper from Amazon for Black Friday at $189, for savings of $41. Its price may return to normal at any moment though, as we're not sure how much stock is allocated for the shopping holiday, so if you want to get this laptop for less than $200, you need to complete the purchase as soon as you can.

Why you should buy the Acer Aspire 1 laptop
The Acer Aspire 1 isn't going to offer similar performance as the best laptops with its Intel Celeron N4500 processor, integrated Intel UHD Graphics, and 4GB of RAM. However, these specifications are more than enough for day-to-day functions like browsing the internet, checking social media, and building reports. The laptop is also a great choice for watching streaming shows, as it features a 15.6-inch screen with Full HD resolution, so you'll be getting sharp details and bright colors.

Amazon Black Friday sale slices 29% off the Fire Max 11 tablet
The Amazon Kindle Fire Max 11's Home screen.

If you like Amazon line of Fire products, here's one of the Black Friday tablet deals that you should consider shopping -- the 128GB, ad-free version of the Amazon Fire Max 11 for $200, following a 29% discount on its original price of $280. That's $80 in savings that you may not get from anywhere other than Black Friday deals, but the offer may not even make it to the shopping holiday itself because there's a chance that stocks are already gone by then. If you want to get this device for much cheaper than usual, it's highly recommended that you proceed with the purchase right now.

Why you should buy the Amazon Fire Max 11 tablet
The Amazon Fire Max 11 is Amazon's most powerful Fire tablet, featuring an octa-core MediaTek MT8188 processor and 4GB of RAM for smooth performance when you're multitasking between apps, browsing the internet, and watching streaming shows on Amazon Prime Video or other services. The device is equipped with a great display for video -- an 11-inch touchscreen with 2000 x 1200 resolution -- two upward-firing speakers, and a battery life of up to 14 hours on a single charge. The tablet's storage may be expanded by up to 1TB through its microSD slot, and if you activate Show Mode, the Amazon Fire Max 11 turns into a smart display that's powered by Amazon's Alexa.

I found two Keurig coffee makers for $50 in Amazon’s Black Friday sale
Keurig coffee maker K-Mini on a kitchen counter with lemon-colored cup and bowls.

For most of us, waking up in the morning means having a cup of coffee. Luckily, there are a lot of great coffee makers on sale as part of the Black Friday sale that's going on right now, and if you want something high-quality yet budget-priced, these Keurig deals are perfect. Both the K-Mini and the K-Compact are small enough to take with you everywhere, so you never have to be without your coffee, and if you don't travel a lot, then they're a great option if you don't have a lot of room in your kitchen.
Keurig K-Mini -- $50, was $60

If you want an ultra-portable coffee maker, it's hard to beat the Keurig K-Mini that is literally just big enough to fit a single cup and thin enough that you could potentially put it in a handbag or backpack. As a single-cup coffee maker, it has a one-cup reservoir that's up to 12 ounces so you can fill it with the perfect amount. It also has its own cord storage, and it can brew you a cup in just a couple of minutes, so you're never too far away from your next cup. It also has a 90-minute cutoff safety feature which is both important and greatly appreciated.
