Should you buy a tablet on Black Friday or wait for Cyber Monday?
11-inch version of Huawei MatePad Pro tablet

A lot of folks wait all year for Black Friday so they can pick up a tablet, but many also worry about whether waiting for Cyber Monday is a better idea. Well, we'll look into that, as well as some great Black Friday deals you can pick up right now.
Should you buy a tablet on Black Friday?
Yes, absolutely, especially since Black Friday is one of the best times to pick up electronics like tablets. If you're worried about Cyber Monday, the truth is that while offers tend to be mirrored, there's no absolute guarantee that you'll find the same item on sale for the same price or at all. That means you're better off picking up Black Friday tablet deals when you see them rather than waiting. That said, even if you do find a better deal on Cyber Monday, you should still be within the return window for Black Friday, so you can return that tablet for a full refund and buy the one with the better offer.

Fire HD 10 tablet --  $75, was $150

The Fire HD 10 tablet is Amazon's attempt to hit the budget tablet market running, and they do a surprisingly good job of it. You get a 10.1-inch FHD display with relatively good brightness and 3GB of RAM, which is more than enough for most day-to-day usage. With this deal, you also get 32GB of storage, although you can bump it up to the 64GB version if you feel you need it. It has the same experience as the Fire TVs since it carries the same OS, so if you're already a fan of that, you're in luck! One thing we need to point out, though, is that this is a lock screen-ad-supported version, which is why it's so cheap. Luckily, you can get it without the lock screen ads for an extra $15, and we encourage you to do that if you can.

Woman wearing Apple Airpods Max.

Black Friday is a great time to pick up some headphones, but the fear of missing out makes some of us worry about clicking on that 'checkout now' button. So, let's consider whether it's worth waiting until Cyber Monday and look at some great headphone deals available now.
Should you buy headphones on Black Friday?
While Cyber Monday will likely have a lot of the same headphone deals as Black Friday, you're better off not waiting for Cyber Monday to pick a deal up. The truth is, you aren't likely to fund much better deals, if at all, so it's best to grab the Black Friday headphone deals that you like rather than potentially missing out by waiting. Plus, if you find a great Cyber Monday deal, you should be in the Black Friday refund window, where you can get your money back and buy the newer and better deal.

Sony WH-CH710N -- $68, was $150

While many folks may be familiar with Sony due to the Playstation consoles, many may not realize that Sony is also a massive player in the audio industry, including headphones. Take these Sony WH-CH710N; while they're mid-range headphones at bargain-bin prices, their audio quality is surprisingly good. Granted, it's not going to be as good as higher-end headsets, but it's not meant to be, especially since it costs less than a quarter of their price. That's to say; it's dependable audio across the board that you won't regret. Surprisingly, you even get Artificial Intelligence Noise Cancellation (AINC), a lower-end version of Active Noise Cancellation technology (ANC). It works for what it is, but it's not going to block out more jarring sounds like your neighbor drilling into your shared wall.
