These Amazon deals may not be on your wish list, but they'll likely make you say, "Sure, why not?"

There are two kinds of Black Friday shoppers: those who have a list of gifts to buy and have been waiting weeks for the holiday sales to start, and those who just love the thrill of the one-click buy.

If you’re more of a shopping strategizer, we’ve got a list of the best overall Amazon Black Friday deals (along with some Amazon device-specific deals). We’ve also found great deals at Target, Walmart and Best Buy. And here’s our running list of the best deals you can find just about anywhere.

But if you’re just looking for a stocking stuffer, a white elephant gift or an opportunity to treat yourself — and you’ve got $20 or so burning a hole in your pocket — read on for a truly random collection of Amazon deals that’ll make you click “add to cart.”
