Friday has finally arrived and we feel that that's reason enough to treat ourselves to some self-congratulatory shopping. Luckily, we've found some dapper discounts on self-indulgent presents that will limit the guilt on such frivolous spending. We've spotted the ASUS Taichi Laptop for $100 under our Black Friday price, a $61 overnight drop on a Dooney & Bourke designer handbag, and more in today's list of five Editors' Choice deals that we found overnight and early this morning.
Top Lighting Deal
Adesso Floor Lamps
Store: Home Depot
Price: $15.18 via coupon "HDLIGHT10" plus in-store pickup
Lowest By $29
Do You Need It?: Home lighting doesn't often come cheap, but these simple floor lamps from Home Depot are a bargain worthy of any stylish — albeit poorly-lit — living room. Each style is less than half the price of the next cheapest store and as such is well worth the trip to your local outlet. The Adesso Swivel 71.5" Floor Lamp is available in Satin Steel (pictured) or Black, while the Adesso Gander 71" Floor Lamp comes in Black.
Top Toy Deal
Barnes & Noble Coupon
Store: Barnes & Noble
Discount: $10 off toys or games over $19.95 via Mastercard & "MCTOYGAME"
Shipping: $3.99 or free shipping over $25 (after discount)
Lowest By: $10
Expires: December 16 at 3 am ET
Do You Need It?: Any discount on toys and games is certainly most welcome at this time of year, so we reckon that this dollar-off coupon at Barnes & Noble will be a sure winner. It's only the second such offer we've seen from the store on toys and games this year and it yields lows on a wide range of popular items. Heading in-store? You can bag the same discount via this printable coupon. (It's not valid at Barnes & Noble College Bookstores.)
Top Laptop Deal
ASUS Taichi Ivy Bridge i5 1.7GHz 12" 2-Screen Laptop
Price: $599.99 for Adorama VIP members with free shipping
Lowest By: $150
Do You Need It?: Not only is this ASUS Taichi Laptop at an all-time price low, but it's $100 less than the best price we could find for it on Black Friday. If you're still unconvinced of its value however, CNET highly-rated the design of this device, saying that it "...offers a clever implementation of a dual-screen design in a slim Core i7 chassis." It features an Intel Core i5-3317U 1.7GHz Ivy Bridge dual-core CPU, two 11.6" 1920x1080 (1080p) LED-backlit widescreen LCDs (one of them is a touchscreen), 4GB RAM, 128GB SSD, 802.11n wireless, Bluetooth 4.0, dual 5MP webcams, 6-cell battery, and Windows 8 Home Premium 64-bit.
Top Handbag Deal
Dooney & Bourke Florentine Medium Savannah Satchel
Price: $137.99 via coupon "FRIEND" with free shipping
Lowest By: $61
Expires: December 9
Do You Need It?: Marilyn Monroe may have claimed that diamonds were a girl's best friend, but we reckon she'd settle for a designer handbag as a more frugal alternative. This stylish Dooney & Bourke number has fallen $61 in price since yesterday and is also at a current price low by the same value. It features double handles with a 3" drop and a detachable long strap with a 21" drop.
Top Bedding Deal
Serta Soundcrest II Queen Mattress w/ Serta Box Spring
Price: $344.99 via coupon "SEARS2013" plus $69.99 s&h
Lowest By: $805
Do You Need It?: Seeing as you'll spend a third of your life asleep (more if you're lucky, less if you're a parent), then we reckon it's of absolute importance to invest in a bed worthy of a queen. Now that it's dropped by a massive $525 in price, why not surrender to comfort and splash out on the Serta Soundcrest II Queen Mattress at Sears? You can even choose one of four Serta box springs at no extra cost — that's an additional saving of at least $110. The mattress features FireBlocker fiber, Phillo-Fill breathable material, a layer of Serta PillowSoft foam, and a layer of Serta Memory Foam.
Total Savings: At least $1,055
