Best Black Friday 2018 deals at Staples: 0 Fire TV Cube, 9 laser printers and more

Staples does much more than simple office supplies, and for Black Friday, the retailer has traditionally pushed both work-related and personal tech devices. A few notes before we begin:

  • Most of these discounted prices should be available to order on Thanksgiving Day, and picked up or purchased in-store starting at 7 a.m. local time on Friday Nov. 23. 
  • That means the direct links below won’t reflect the planned sale prices until (in most cases) Nov. 22. 
  • CNET may get a share of revenue from the sale of the products featured on this page.

With that, happy shopping!

Amazon Fire Tablets, 9-9

Most of the Fire line is deeply discounted. The 8-inch is probably the best overall value in terms of features and performance. If you’re buying for a child, the Kids Editions are actually worth a bit extra for the better warranty and tons of included subscription content.

Amazon Echo Dot, 4

Does anyone buy an Echo Dot at full price? Probably not, as they’re on sale so often. This price even beats the usual 9 discount that rolls around periodically on Amazon. Note that this is for the latest, improved version of the Dot, too.

HP Pavilion 14, 69

This basic, but decently outfitted 14-inch laptop has an Intel Core i5 CPU, 8GB of RAM and a 1TB hard drive. Some similar Core i3 models are 0 or so less, but I think an i5 CPU is worth the extra investment.

Lenovo Flex 6 2-in-1, 29

One of the better two-in-one deals, even when it’s not on sale, I always like that the Lenovo Flex line is almost as good as the higher-end Yoga line, with a similar 360-degree hinge, but at lower prices.

HP Pavilion 15, 99

A decent step-up laptop, this has an Intel Core i7 CPU, 24GB of RAM, including Intel Optane RAM, and 1TB of (probably platter-based) storage.

Canon imageClass MF244DW laser printer, 9

Once you switch to a laser printer, you’re never going back. This basic monochrome model also includes a flatbed scanner, and you find far fewer hassles in using and replacing toner than in an inkjet printer.

Amazon Fire TV Cube and Stick, 4-9

The current 4K streaming stick from Amazon is occasionally on sale for around this price, although it’s still a good deal. What’s more interesting is the steep drop for the new 4K-ready Fire TV Cube, which mixes streaming video with Alexa-powered voice apps.

Google Home Hub, 9

Many shops will reportedly have the latest Google smart home device for 0 off the usual price. This is a screen-centric version of a smart assistant, which can display weather, photos, YouTube videos and more.
