The beautiful, hardcover Star Trek Federation: The First 150 Years has glowing critical and consumer reviews, and is down to a ridiculously cheap 20 bucks.

A definitive history of the federation, it takes Star trek seriously. - Amazon review from Thomas Joseph Marrone

We mentioned it on our Black Friday Preparation Guide that Amazon is ramping up their exclusive deals for Prime members, in addition to giving Prime members early access to lightning deals. Turns out Amazon is also rolling out exclusive deals for Amazon Visa cardholders, including Smash Bros. 3DS for $28 with code TYS25ARC. [Smash 3DS]


We recommend the Amazon Visa in our prep guide, and it's also Lifehacker's favorite rewards credit card.

Black Friday is the best time of year to buy a new TV, but you don't have to wait until the turkey coma wears off to secure a great price.

Amazon has opened preorders for 15 different Samsung TVs at prices that match or exceed the "leaked" Black Friday deals from other retailers like Best Buy, Sears, and Walmart. The TVs won't ship until next week, but if you have your eye on a specific model, ordering it now will make for a less stressful Black Friday weekend.

At this time of year, it's tempting to say "I'll wait for Black Friday," whenever you see a deal, but seriously, these are the same prices you'll see on and after Thanksgiving on these exact same TV sets, but with none of the fuss, so buy with confidence. [ Amazon]

The Roku Streaming Stick has some healthy competition in the form of the Chromecast and Amazon's Fire TV Stick, but if you're tempted by Roku's simple on-screen interface and 1800+ app ecosystem (including Google Play!), you're in luck today.

Newegg is currently offering refurbs of the Stick for $35, which is $15 under MSRP, the best price we've seen, and $5 less than Best Buy's upcoming Black Friday deal. This would obviously make a great gift, and if you still own any TVs without a streaming box attached, you'd be hard pressed to find a better bang for your buck. [Newegg]

It never hurts to keep some spare HDMI cables around. [ 4-Pack of 6-ft HDMI Cables, $10]

If you, or anyone on your holiday shopping list wants a new Kindle, Kindle Fire, or Fire TV, here's a rare chance to save $40 on almost model, directly from Amazon.


All you have to do is sign up for Amazon Prime, and add (almost) any Kindle e-reader, Kindle Fire tablet, or Fire TV to your cart in the same transaction. If you already have Prime (and you should), this deal also works when buying a 1-year gift subscription, which you can just give to yourself to add another year onto your plan.

If you're planning on renewing or ordering Prime anyway for the holiday shopping season, this is basically $40 of free money. The discount brings the new entry-level Kindle down to an absurdly cheap $39, and the expensive-but-amazing new Kindle Voyage down to $159, both all-time lows.

Representing a step-up from the popular Arc3 and Arc4 series, Panasonic Arc5 is a top of the line electric razor with a top-shelf price to match. Today though, Amazon's offering a $100 off coupon to bring the total damage down to $151. [Panasonic ES-LV61-A Arc5 Electric Shaver Wet/Dry with Multi-Flex Pivoting Head, $151 after $100 off coupon]

Amazon's Gold Box deal page has been taken over by highly rated kitchen gear, today only.
