With so many Black Friday deals floating around earlier than ever this year, lots of great promotions, and, of course, the holidays coming, it’s probably no surprise that Disney is joining the fun! This year, they’re kicking things off Black Friday-style with an event called Disney+ Day! It is both a celebration of the streaming service’s success and the holiday shopping spirit, but just what is it exactly? More importantly, when is Disney+ Day?

Disney+ Day is on Friday, November 12, and it will feature a host of events, including a great deal for new and returning subscribers. According to Disney, “Disney+ subscribers, and fans will enjoy exclusive offers, surprise moments, exclusive entertainment, content premieres from all of the service’s marquee brands, and much more.” We’ll be getting new releases and exclusive content from properties like Disney, Marvel, Pixar, Star Wars, National Geographic, and more. But also, up until Sunday, November 14, new and returning subscribers can sign up for a Disney+ subscription for just $2, for the first month. You won’t have long to claim that deal, so hurry!

Amazon’s Prime Day sale gets you this Android tablet for $40
amazon fire 7 tablet deal october 2023  2022 large

If you like to read while you travel but don't necessarily want to buy a Kindle, the Amazon Fire 7 is a great option, especially with the big Prime Day deal that's brought its price down to $40 from $60. Not only that, but you essentially get a fully-fledged tablet, so you can watch shows or check your social media while not worrying about breaking or damaging a high-end tablet.

Why you should buy this Amazon Fire 7 tablet
While Amazon Fire 7 comes with FireOS as an operating system, it's essentially a reskinned version of Android, so you're getting the Android experience with an Amazon flavor to it. That means that you get quick access to Amazon's ecosystem, such as Alexa, and it is great if you're already familiar with it. That doesn't mean you don't get access to a full suite of apps, and even though you can't access Google Play on this Fire 7 Tablet, you still get all the main apps you expect, from Instagram to Zoom. So, unless you have a very specific app need, you should be absolutely fine!

Why you should buy the Apple Watch SE (2022)
The Apple Watch series are among the best fitness watches for men, and that doesn't change with the second-generation Apple Watch SE despite being the more affordable version of Apple's wearable devices. It still offers comprehensive fitness tracking features that will give you valuable insights into your health, and there are also safety features such as Crash Detection, Fall Detection, and Emergency SOS that will alert the authorities and your loved ones if you find yourself in an accident. The smartwatch is also swimproof with a water resistance of 50 meters, so you can take it into the water, and it's also become a must-have for hiking after recent updates.
