Veterans Day sales: 4K TV, Kindle and Echo deals to know

It's Veterans Day and many retailers are using this as an excuse to release some of the deals they want to test on Black Friday. The Team at TechBargains has found that many of the deals you see on Veterans Day can actually be just as good as you will find on Black Friday especially on electronics. You will likely see these same deals at roughly the same price. The only difference is you won't have to suffer through Black Friday lines and you'll be able to enjoy your Thanksgiving by buying now.

55" Vizio M-Series 4K UltraHD 120Hz LED Smart HDTV + 6" 1080p Tablet remote + $250 Dell Gift Card for $799.99 (Orig $999.99)
The Vizio M-Series is a well-reviewed TV from one of America's favorite TV brands. Vizio's pack a lot of value at a highly competitive price and the Vizio M-Series is one of their higher end models. It has a full-array LED backlight with local dimming for great picture quality, sharp 4K display resolution and even supports the new HDR format which you can immediately make use of on your PS4 or Xbox One s. To top it all off they include a 6" Android remote that serves as home theater style remote and can be used to surf the web or stream. With the $250 Dell gift card you are paying about $550 which is a steal for a high quality 4K TV.

Lowest price on iRobot Roomba 650 Robot Vacuum for $274 (Orig $374.99)

This is the lowest price we've seen by $25 and this little robot will take care of that chore of cleaning with a touch of a button. You can schedule this to clean 7x per week to stay ahead of the dirt or if you have pets. Features three stage cleaning of agitation, brushing and suction. Spinning side brushes clean wall edges and into corners which most full size vacuums have difficulty doing. This is the #1 Amazon seller and reviews say it works great with hard floors and will handle mixed floor types like rugs, carpet or tile.

Dell Inspiron 17 5000 Intel Core i7-6500u Dual-Core 17.3" 1080p Laptop for $609 (Orig $931)
Use Code: SAVE270. If you need a larger laptop that has a good size display for productivity and a powerful current generation i7 processor from Intel than the Inspiron 17 5000 is a great choice. The 1080p display will display sharp text and graphics and this machine will handily take on anything you throw at it. For those with small businesses or Windows power users this laptop includes Windows 7 Pro (with a license for Windows 10) for advanced features. At a price of $609 it's an incredible value.

49" LG 49LH5700 1080p LED Smart HDTV + $150 Dell Gift Card for $399.99 (Orig $499.99)
If you have a a cheap TV for Black Friday on your wishlist then look no further. LG is a well known brand and is generally overshadowed by their flashier cousin Samsung. LG is known for making quality electronics with a lot of features for very competitive price. At $400 you are unlikely to find a name brand TV in the 50" size range for cheaper. The included $150 gift card effectively discounts you under $300 which is a steal.

Bonus $50 Gift Card on the New Xbox One S or PS4 Slim for $299.99 (Orig $350)
Dell is offering some early Black Friday deals with a bonus $50 Dell gift card on either the Xbox One S with its 4K and HDR ability or the redesigned PS4 Slim with HDR. These are first waves of console deals and these have an effective pricing of $250 which is the baseline of what we expect to see during Black Friday. Better deals will be had on Black Friday but the likelihood of getting the deal are much

The Amazon Echo is one of the most popular home bluetooth speaker that lets you play music with voice command and uses Alexa's Voice service. You can ask Alexa for an Uber, set a reminder or alarm, or ask it a question like, "What's the weather?" If you have home automation like a Nest thermostat or a Philips Hue light you can control it with Alexa. At $120 this is one of the best prices we've seen that anyone can get. This has been certified refurbished by Amazon and goes through Amazon's stringent QA and recertification process and is back by a full 1-year warranty same new. Really the only difference to you is the extra savings.

Amazon Paperwhite eReader w/ Backlight (Amazon Certified Refurbished 1-Year Warranty) $79.99 (Orig $109)
This is the Kindle of choice for readers and is the lowest price we've seen (usually $100 on sale new). It has a high resolution 300ppi display for sharp text and has a built-in light so that you can read in the dark. There is no screen glare so you can enjoy it while reading outside in the sunlight. If you read a book a month and take your Kindle around a few times a year this is a good choice for you

Amazon Kindle Voyager 6" eReader w/ Adaptive Light (Amazon Certified Refurbished w/ 1-Year Warranty) $119.99 (Orig $199.99)
The Kindle voyager is thinner, lighter and has a more premium feel than the Paperwhite. It has a magnesium backing and has a sleeker design. It's definitely the Kindle of choice if you read and travel a lot as its micro-etched display has better contrast, its better material is more durable and has a better adaptive light as well as PagePress buttons that will make this a pleasure for avid readers.

It's built like a tank, will protect your laptop, store all your electronics and cords and has a lot of ergonomic design features at a great price.
