If you’re after a VR headset this Black Friday, or a smart display for your growing smart home setup, Amazon may have just the deal for you.

Amazon is deals central right now, with the retail giant already having launched hundreds of offers, and as we near Black Friday itself we’re seeing seriously tempting deals on some top tech.

The latest deals include 20-25% off Oculus Go VR headsets. While the Oculus Go is the cheapest model in the Oculus range, it usually retails for £200 for the 32GB model, or £250 for the 64GB model – but with these Black Friday deals you can now get those models for £150 and £200 respectively. (Not in the UK? Scroll down for Oculus Go deals in your region.)

We saw similar price cuts last year over Black Friday, and we could well see bigger drops over the coming weekend if the stock doesn’t start to shift – but these are already sizable savings for anyone looking to get into VR to consider.

There are also big savings to be had on Facebook Portal smart displays. We weren’t hugely impressed by the Portal TV model we reviewed this year, but if you want the large-screen convenience of a webcam that plugs into your TV – and don’t mind the idea of Facebook having a camera and a microphone in your living room – the £50 discount on Amazon may make it mighty tempting.

You can also save £50 on the Facebook Portal, a standalone 10-inch smart display. (Not in the UK? Scroll down for Facebook Portal deals in your region.)
