Those on the hunt for new gizmos and gadgets should consider taking the plunge on some killer deals today, rather than waiting until Black Friday. The Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 has fallen to $100, beating many advertised Black Friday deals. Plus, we've seen an all-time low on the unlocked iPhone 5c. These deals, 100 free MP3 albums, and more are in today's list of five Editors' Choice deals that we found overnight and early this morning.
Top Music Deal

Do You Need It?: If you're looking for an early morning soundtrack to get you pumped for a day at the sales, then Windows phone users can score 100 free album downloads by simply downloading Microsoft's Music Deals app. Since many of these albums cost $5 or more via iTunes, it's a bargain worthy of the most frugal of music-lovers. Choose from popular artists including Eminem, Green Day, STP, Weezer, and Rihanna.
