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. 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. Vizios 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 Ones. To top it all off they include a 6-inch Android remote that 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.

Use Code: SAVE270. If you need a larger laptop that has power, 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. 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 wanted an inexpensive TV for Black Friday 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-inch size range for less. The included $150 gift card effectively discounts you under $300 which is a steal.

The Amazon Echo is one of the most popular home Bluetooth speakers 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.

These are first waves of console deals and the effective pricing of $250 is the baseline price of what we expect to see during Black Friday.
