Stop everything: Amazon just dropped a killer deal on the mega-popular Fire TV Stick Lite — it's down to a ridiculous $16 (from $30) for Black Friday weekend. The brilliant streaming gizmo syncs with your Wi-Fi to give you access to a boatload of goodness, including Netflix, Hulu, YouTube, Disney+, Prime Video, Peacock, HBO Max, Starz and Showtime. Between that smorgasbord of viewing options and the Fire TV Stick's interactive settings — such as pop-up results for actor and director names via IMDb — you might be tempted to ditch cable for good.
Easy as pie: Plug it into one of your TV’s HDMI ports and it’ll search for your home’s Wi-Fi network and wait for you to log in. Once you're signed in, you’ll gain access to hundreds of streaming apps and channels.
The Fire TV Stick adds a ton of features to a TV at a low cost, and this is one of the lowest prices we've seen this year. The only time it dropped lower was last year's Black Friday, when it was $1 less.
Why do I need this?
If you have an older TV or just don’t like the video-streaming settings that came with your set, you need the Fire TV Stick Lite.
The Fire TV Stick Lite is the same as the standard Fire TV Stick, but with a different remote. It still comes with Alexa voice assistant for voice search, hands-free navigation and instant access to news, weather and sports scores.
At just $16, the Fire TV Stick Lite is one of the best video-streaming devices out there — grab it at this price while you can.
What reviewers say
This thing is beyond popular. Almost 42,000 reviewers have bestowed a five-star rating on it. "I love my Fire Stick. It is easy to install and operate," said one fan.
"The Amazon Fire TV Stick Lite is a total game-changer. HD streaming with access to free and live TV has transformed my entertainment experience," wrote another. "The Alexa Voice Remote Lite makes navigation a breeze, and the added smart home controls are a fantastic bonus. This stick offers incredible value for its price — a must-have for upgrading any TV setup!"
One shopper said, "I love the clean and sleek design. It’s also really handy to have the Prime button and the movie buttons. Alexa works great and is very fast! It was really easy to set up and works perfectly. The only downside is that it can’t turn up or down my TV volume."
Insignia's 24-inch TV is a popular choice thanks to its 1,080-pixel resolution and Fire TV capabilities — you can stream more than a million shows and movies. And now, the TV's already low price is even lower than before. The Alexa-equipped remote makes it easy to flip through channels using just your voice.

Made with 96.3% snail secretion filtrate (yep, really), this CosRx serum has become a viral favorite for its incredible effect on skin dullness and dryness. With over 44,000 rave reviews from verified shoppers, this formula has a massive fan base — many of whom rave about how hydrated and bright their skin feels after use.
Aside from their fab price (over 40% off!), we love the real-time power readout on the front of the case of these earbuds, making it so much easier than pulling out your phone and swiping to find out how much charge is left. The top number shows how much juice is in the case, while the two smaller indicators show readings for each bud. Pretty smart! But that's not their only innovative feature: These buds have everything you'd expect in a quality pair. On-ear controls let you answer calls, skip songs and activate Siri. They also have multiple sound modes to pick from. Nearly 8,000 five-star fans can't be wrong, right?
The a.m. "grind" doesn't have to be taken so literally, as in, having to grind your own coffee beans. Mornings are hectic enough as it is! With this compact Keurig, you'll be able to enjoy a freshly brewed cup of joe, no filters or coffee grinders required. Simply fill the reservoir with water, pop in the K-Cup of your choice, select the size of your cup and — presto — java will appear in your mug in under a minute. True to its name, this slim model also won't take up much counter space. We rarely see this model dip below $50, and if you're someone who enjoys a hot bev (or two) on a daily basis, it'll pay for itself with all the time it'll save you. We recommend snagging it while it's 50% off!
As sleek as your full-sized appliances, this versatile cooker air fries, bakes, broils, toasts and more. It's roomy enough to fit a 4-pound chicken, six slices of bread or a 12-inch pizza, and will make your crispy-crunchy dreams a reality in no time. Don't be surprised if you start using this more than your actual oven!
This No. 1 bestselling, TikTok-famous compact carpet cleaner packs a punch, especially considering it weighs less than 10 pounds! Its powerful suction can be used to remove stains not just from rugs, but furniture and even car upholstery, too. Plus, it comes with a self-cleaning hose tool and a bottle of Bissell's Spot & Stain with Febreeze. We haven't seen this viral cleaner priced much lower than it currently is in years (it was only a few bucks cheaper back in July for Prime Day) — and when you consider how much money it'll save you in professional cleaning bills (and replacement furniture), it'll pay for itself in just a few uses.
Want to get out the door on time in the morning? Meet your new best friend: This two-in-one straightening brush smooths hair while eliminating tangles, and reviewers say it takes way less time than using a flat iron.

At just about half a pound, this topseller is like an ultra-lightweight extension of your arm — and what it lacks in heft, it certainly makes up for in dexterity. With this handy grabber tool, you'll be able to grasp hard-to-reach items above and below with ease. The durable metal rod extends as far as 32 inches for easy reaching and folds down for space-saving storage when not in use. Its rubber claws ensure a secure hold, and its grips are also equipped with magnets for lifting metallic items small and large.
With its 6-quart capacity, this gorgeous air fryer can hold enough food for five to seven people, yet its small footprint won't take up too much space on your counter. Its patent-pending TurboCrisp technology helps ensure quick, even cooking with that crunch factor we all crave (though you'll be able to cook with as much as 75% less fat than deep-frying). The user-friendly touchscreen lights up while in use and features time and temperature settings (from 90-400 degrees Fahrenheit), as well as four functions: Air Fry, Roast, Reheat and Dehydrate, the latter of which is a cool feature that isn't always included with air fryers.
If you get stressed when you're out and about and notice your phone's battery is at 13%, this portable charger duo is a must. They're slim and compact enough to keep stashed in your bag at all times, and each one has two USB ports for charging multiple devices at a time. Keep one for yourself and give one as a stocking stuffer ... or not! At 45% off, this is the cheapest we've seen this set since spring.

A dog may be man’s best friend – but it turns out we’re quite picky when it comes to choosing our canine companions. So picky, in fact, that several of Britain’s once best-loved breeds are declining in popularity, leaving them not only out of favour, but on the brink of extinction.
At least 246 XL bully dogs will be euthanised when a ban comes into force at the end of the year, Sky News can exclusively reveal. Under the ban, which comes into force in two phases, XL bullies cannot be lawfully rehomed or sold after 31 December. Any XL bully in rescue centres in England and Wales will have to be put down unless they can be rehomed before the end of the year.
NEW YORK (Reuters) -The battleground for retailers this U.S. holiday season is over merchandise priced at $35 and less, setting the stage for the cheapest shopping period in years for TVs, toys, dresses, and sporting goods, according to retail executives, federal pricing data and exclusive analysis of early Black Friday discounts. Toys, games and hobby gear are on track to be less expensive this holiday season for the first time since 2020, while sporting goods prices are down this holiday for the first time since 2018, data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS)showed. The price of a TV is three-fourths of what it was in 2019, while men's suits, outerwear, sports coats, women's dresses and audio equipment are 8% to 14% cheaper compared with pre-pandemic levels, BLS data for October shows.
If it’s never even crossed your mind to buy your dog or cat a Christmas present, you’re in a tiny minority. The high street is absolutely awash with doggy advent calendars, pre-filled cat stockings and Christmas pudding snuffle mats. Personally, however, with so much choice (and tat in the shops), I find it tough to find the best Christmas gifts for dogs. My whippet, Rudy, is still scarred from last year’s itchy Christmas jumper.
They weigh a tonne, take up half the cupboard and cost a bomb, yet happiness in our house is a Le Creuset cooking pot simmering on the hob. Mine was a wedding present and I use it to make all my favourite stews and ragus, as does my mother: hers is brown and belonged to my grandmother and is so well worn that it is missing most of its handle. She won’t give it up, even though she’s been given a replacement – Le Creusets are like old friends; they disguise a multitude of culinary sins and bring j
