Black Friday may have come and gone, but it slid right into Cyber Monday, and many of the great deals available over the weekend are still going strong. You may not want to splash out the big bucks on a laptop or TV, but there are still plenty of amazing deals to be had under $30, including on speakers and streaming services. 

We’re collecting the best discounts on products available for those who are under a tight budget, so if you’re looking for a stocking stuffer or a late-days-of-Hanukkah gift, these are the deals for you. Right now, for example, nearly all of Amazon’s device deals are still available, so strike now to get your hands on a Fire tablet, Echo Dot or Fire TV stick. Oh, and throw in supercheap subscriptions to Amazon Music, Hulu or Disney Plus while you’re at it.

Cyber Monday deals under $30 available now

These are the Cyber Monday bargains that are available right now.

The JBL Clip 3 debuted last year for $72, and CNET’s David Carnoy called it “a top-notch waterproof travel speaker.” Today, you can get it for just $30 on Amazon, which is an absolute steal.

Walmart

Sorry, Bond and Bourne: Pound for pound, there’s no action-movie series that delivers the goods like Mission: Impossible. This set includes all six titles in both Blu-ray and digital formats. It normally sells for anywhere from $48-$60.

The bundle is also available at Amazon for the same price.

Best Buy

It’s identical in almost every way to the legendary Instant Pot, just priced considerably lower. And if you’re not sure about Insignia, Best Buy’s “house brand,” look no further than the 4.7-star average rating on this thing from nearly 2,000 buyers.

For an affordable Roku streamer that does support 4K, you’ll want the Roku Streaming Stick Plus. It was an Editors’ Choice winner here on CNET last year with an overall score of 9.6 out of 10.

They’re back: Best Buy again has the JLabs JBuds Air on sale for $30. They normally retail for $50. JLabs makes a lot of true wireless earphones and this is its most affordable — and frankly, the only one I’d buy. It’s a decent set of true wireless earbuds that’s a relative bargain at $30.

We saw this deal last year but it’s still a good one: Sony’s micro Bluetooth speaker, the SRS-XB01, is on sale for $15 at Best Buy.

Updated for 2019 with more storage and a faster processor, the Fire 7 remains an incredible buy at its regular $50 price. So for $30? Yeah, there’s honestly no better choice for anyone looking to read, watch videos, play games and all that. It’s an especially good pick for kids.

If you’re looking to take the plunge on Hulu’s video service, now is the perfect time. This weekend only, you can scoop up the first year of the service for just $1.99 a month — $4 less than the usual price. Yes, there are ads, and yes, the price goes up after the first year. But this is still a pretty sweet deal.

See complete details.

Amazon

If you’re a newcomer to Amazon’s music-streaming service, it’s hard to beat a buck for four full months of service. After that, you’ll pay the regular rate of $9.99 per month, though you can cancel if you like, without penalty. 

Amazon

Amazon Echo Dot deals are about as routine as the tides, but this one is about as good as they get. The common sale price is $30; occasionally it might dip to $25. So $22 is notable. It’s the third-gen Dot (but not the slightly modified new one with the clock), great for flinging Alexa commands in just about any room, decent for playing tunes.

Assuming you’re not already vested in the Echo ecosystem of smart speakers, the Home Mini is a no-brainer buy at $19. Granted, there’s a newer model (the Nest Mini) that’s even better, but that’ll run you $49. The Home Mini still sounds very good for its size and offers a wealth of Google Assistant-powered features. It’s even better if you pair two together.

The link below will take you to Walmart, but the Home Mini is also on sale for $19 at Best Buy, Target and several other stores.

Sony/Marvel

Last year’s hottest PS4 game originally sold for $60 — and that was without extra content. Right now, you can get the GOTY Edition (which includes lots of extra goodies) for $20. That’s up from its all-time-low weekend price of $15, but it’s still a must-have for PS4 owners. Lots more game deals here, many of them under $30.
