These deals show it pays to be patient this shopping season.

Black Friday is often cited as America's biggest shopping day of the year, but some of the deepest discounts don’t come around until Cyber Monday.

If you’re patient (and smart) enough to wait until after the weekend, you’re likely to find even better deals online—and you won’t have to camp outside a store or deal with awful crowds.


Samsung UN55HU7250 Curved 4K LED TV

AAFES Cyber Monday TV Deal

55-inch

Price: $1,199.99 (MSRP $2,199.99)
Size: 55 inches
Store: AAFES
Availability: Cyber Monday (Dec 1)

We’ll start with a big one: The Army & Air Force Exchange Service (AAFES) is selling a Samsung 55-inch 4K curved TV for $1,000 off retail. Of course, if you want to go bigger, that same ad also has a hefty discount on the 65-inch version.

65-inch

Price: $1,799.99 (MSRP $3,299.99)
Size: 65 inches
Store: AAFES
Availability: Cyber Monday (Dec 1)

65 inches is a lot of TV, and a $1,500 discount is a lot of savings. The curved design has serious aesthetic appeal, but we’ll be the first to admit that the Samsung UN65HU7250 isn’t the absolute best TV in terms of picture quality. Still, at such a heavy discount, you may find it to be a worthwhile upgrade to your entertainment center.


Samsung 55” UN55HU6840 4K LED TV

Price: $998 (MSRP $1,499)
Size: 55 inches
Store: Walmart
Availability: Now

Not everyone is into curves, and we understand that. Walmart has a 55-inch 4K TV for a little less than $1,000, for those who prefer the more traditional, flat viewing surface. Curved screens come at a premium, but there still hasn’t been any conclusive evidence of its supposed benefits—some people would rather not pay extra for it.


PlayStation 4 Bundle

Walmart Cyber Monday PS4

Price: $449
Store: Walmart
Availability: Cyber Monday (Dec 1)

What could go better with your fancy new TV than a next-gen video game console? Many stores are selling PlayStation 4 bundles, but Walmart offers the best bargain. For $449, you get the PS4 console, an extra controller, and three games: Lego Batman 3, Little Big Planet 3, and one more of your choice (probably Far Cry 4, if you're anything like us).


eBay Cyber Monday Wii U Bundle

Wii U Console + Super Smash Bros Wii U

Price: $249
Store: eBay
Availability: Cyber Monday (Dec 1)

But why settle for just one game console? Wii U Daily pointed us to eBay’s Cyber Monday leaks, which include an incredible Wii U Bundle: The 32GB Deluxe Wii U console with a copy of Nintendo Land and Super Smash Bros Wii U for $249.


Dell 24” Monitor

Price: $99 (Regular price: $199)
Store: Staples
Availability: Cyber Monday (Dec 1)

Upgrading your entertainment center is one thing, but what’s Cyber Monday without upgrading your computer? Staples is offering a 24-inch Dell monitor at half-off, making it an affordable addition or replacement to what you’re currently looking at. Even if your primary computer is a laptop, having a bigger screen for the extra real estate can make working or watching videos much easier on the eyes. Details are a bit scarce on this particular screen, but you can expect it to offer 1080p resolution.


Dell Inspiron 15 5000 Series

Dell Cyber Monday Laptop

Price: $579 (Regular price: $849)
Store: Dell
Availability: Cyber Monday (Dec 1)

If you’re in the market for a laptop, this Dell Inspiron hits all the right marks. Its 8GB of memory, 1TB hard drive, and 15.6-inch screen are more than enough for a casual media consumption and getting work done. The price is also just right for a decent, portable workhorse computer.


Motorola Moto X (2014)

Price: $359 (16GB), $409 (32GB) ($140 off regular price)
Store: Motorola
Availability: Cyber Monday (Dec 1)

Motorola will be offering a limited number of coupon codes starting at noon EST on Cyber Monday for its new, second-generation Moto X—one of the best Android handsets on the market. The flagship phone has a vibrant 5.2-inch, 1080p, OLED screen, but its design customization options (including leather and bamboo backs) and nifty software tweaks (including Motorola's clever "Active Display") are what really make it stand out.


OnePlus One

OnePlus One smartphone

Price: $299 (16GB), $349 (64GB)
Store: oneplus.net
Availability: Now ("while stock lasts")

Previously available by invitation only, the OnePlus One smartphone is a flagship device running a variant of Cyanogenmod—itself an Android variant that eschews many of Google's built-in services. Designed for users who want a great phone but don't want to pay Samsung or Apple prices, it's available exclusively from OnePlus.net, where it's on Black Friday special for $299 or $349, depending on the memory configuration.


Cuisinart Single Serve Brewing System

Price: $99 (Regular price: $189)
Store: AAFES
Availability: Cyber Monday (Dec 1)

K-cups are a polarizing choice for coffee aficionados, but pretty much everyone can agree that this is a great deal from AAFES. This single-serve brewer is good for tea, coffee, or hot cocoa, and it’s nearly half off its regular price of $189.


Samsung RF26HFENDSR French Door Refrigerator

Price: $998 (MSRP $1,799)
Store: Home Depot
Availability: Now–12/3/2014

If upgrading your small appliances isn’t enough for you, this deal might catch your attention. This Samsung fridge is the cheapest French door model we’ve ever seen, and it’s available now until a little after Cyber Monday.


Maytag Bravos XL Washer and Dryer Pair

Price: $549 each (MSRP $799 each)
Store: Lowe’s (Washer and Dryer)
Availability: Now–12/3/2014

This matching washer and dryer duo is the best laundry deal out there, saving you $500 if you get them both. We’ve actually reviewed both machines in our labs: the washer is one of the best top loaders we’ve ever tested, and the dryer out-performed many other machines in its price range.
