These Amazon Cyber Monday 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 and Cyber Monday shoppers: those who have a list of gifts to purchase and have been patiently waiting for the holiday sales to begin, 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 Cyber Monday 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 white elephant gift, a stocking stuffer or something small 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.”
