193 Absolute Best Cyber Monday Deals Right Now (2022): Away Luggage, AirPods Pro, and More

WIRED

The holiday shopping season reaches its peak when Cyber Monday deals roll around. Sales are often better than on Black Friday, but with every retailer promising the best Cyber Monday discounts, it can be tricky to work out what deals to snag and when to pass. Luckily, we have done the hard work for you. WIRED reviewers try countless gadgets, tools, and digital delights of all kinds every week, and we have developed smart shopping tips and tricks to weed out fake discounts and bring you the real deals. We can say with confidence that these are the absolute best Cyber Monday deals you're going to find. You will find regular updates as products go out of stock and prices change, and we'll keep scouring to find more deals worth grabbing. Updated November 28 at 8 pm: We've added more deals, including a meal kit, a gimbal, and smart lights. We've also updated pricing and availability on deals. We test products year-round and handpicked these deals. Products that are sold out or no longer discounted as of publishing will be crossed out . We'll update this guide through Cyber Monday.

Just like upgrading the bed you sleep on, few things will improve your life like a good chair. If you park your body in front of a desk all day, it's a good idea to give the humble chair more attention. Some of our favorites are on sale right now. See our Best Office Chairs guide for more. Our top office chair pick is a bit cheaper right now. We've tested more than 35 office chairs in the past year and this is the one to get based on comfort, quality, adjustability, and price. At this price, you'd be hard-pressed to find a cheaper way to get seven points of adjustment. The only thing we don't like is that pet hair tends to cling, so keep a lint roller handy. The Zeph looks wonderful--there are dozens of color customizations--but the only adjustment you can make is to raise the seat up or down. You might think that would make for an uncomfortable chair, but it doesn't. This lack of adjustability is by design as the Zeph is designed to mold to your body. We do suggest you get the seat pad and arms, which add a smidge more comfort, though it does jack the price up a bit. The Zeph is compact, making it a great option for smaller spaces. The humble Hyken is our favorite budget office chair. It reclines, has a breathable mesh fabric on the back and seat, and it's sturdy. You even get a headrest and lumbar support. After more than three years of continuous sitting, WIRED reviewers say the mesh has compressed a bit, but it's still comfy. If you want to seriously up your home office game, the Embody is the chair to get. This price is for the titanium base, but you can save some money if you go for the graphite. It's stylish and comfortable with an array of knobs and levers that let you tailor the chair to your body like a bespoke suit.
