It's the ultimate battle. Not Good vs. Evil. Or Dark Side vs. Light Side. Or Chocolate vs. Vanilla. But rather... Cyber Monday vs. Black Friday. Which one's better? Honestly, most of the time Black Friday wins that fight. But deep in the trenches where price lines clash, Cyber Monday has its winners. These are the deals we saw today that we liked better than Black Friday.

Cyber Monday Deals That Rock

  • Two Echo Dots ($38 at Amazon)
  • Instant Pot pressure cooker ($65 at Amazon)
  • Casper mattresses (20% off at Amazon)

Echo Dot 2-pack

Black Friday featured the Echo Dot down to $22 individually. Cyber Monday stepped the savings up a notch. If you were planning on buying more than one, you can add two to your cart and use the code DOT2PACK to get the total knocked down to $38. That makes the smart speakers $19 apiece. Factually better than Black Friday. We did the math.

Bundle to save

Amazon Echo Dot 2-Pack

This beats the Black Friday pricing by $3 on each one, but you have to buy two at the same time to get this lowered price. Today's price is the lowest we've ever seen for the Dot.

Instant Pot Duo80 pressure cooker

If you don't have one of the awesome Instant Pot pressure cookers yet, you will by the end of this paragraph. These things take the place of so many appliances in your kitchen. They'll even inspire you to do some new experimenting. Plus, there's no better time than now to save money on them. The 8-quart Duo80 is 54% off today. Get it for just $64.99 when it normally goes for $140. That's a crazy discount. If 8-quart is too big for you, you can still save on the 6-quart Duo and Ultra, which are both discounted today. We saw a couple of drops on Black Friday but obviously not nearly as complete as this.

Instant Pot DUO80 8-quart multicooker

This price drop brings it to a new all-time low, but it will only stick around for today. This version of the Instant Pot has a large capacity, multiple cooking functions, and more. If you don't have one already, change that today!
