Our Favorite Cyber Monday Deals for $50 or Less

By Medea Giordano Gear Team

The TP-Link Kasa plug is our runner-up pick in our Best Smart Plugs guide. Just make sure to buy the HS105 model. The app is easy to use, and our staff who own these haven't run into any problems. You can also group plugs together so you can control several items at once. They work with Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa.

Instant Pot Viva 6-Quart for $50 ($50 off)


We love an Instant Pot, and they're usually on sale during any big deals holiday. This one is half off, and it can do everything you might want, like pressure and slow cook, make rice, and even sous vide. The Duo Nova is on sale for $60 from Macy's, but it doesn't have sous vide capabilities, if that's important to you.

Catit Flower Water Fountain for $22 ($6 off) and Stainless Steel-Topped Fountain for $35 ($9 off)

Catit (Plastic Flower), Catit (Stainless Steel)

We have a guide to cat accessories in the works and—spoiler alert—we love both Catit Water Fountains we tested. If your cat seems disinterested in their water bowl (and attracted to the faucet), they may prefer a fountain. The all-plastic version has a cute detachable flower that can be set up for three water-flow settings. The stainless-steel-topped one has only one flow setting, but it still works well, and the top is dishwasher-safe. We recommend cleaning both options often, since plastic can get dingy. You'll also need to regularly replace the filters (which are also 25 percent off right now, including the rest of Catit's products).

Totallee, Amazon

Use the code DEAL4BFCM for the 30 percent discount. Totallee's super-thin cases are great for those who hate cases but know their phone needs protection. It's not going to protect your phone from a big drop, but it will keep it safe from everyday bumps and scuffs.

They're available for the iPhone 7 and newer, Pixel 2 and newer, and Samsung Galaxy 9 through the S20 Ultra. Sort through the menus on Totallee's Amazon storefront page to find your phone.
