The Best Black Friday Deals We’ve Found (So Far)

TCL 55-inch 4K Roku LED TV – $400 ($200 off)

Date: Available Now

Buy on Amazon

A lot of TV deals will float around throughout the holidays, and you probably can find a way to save another $50, but this TCL is a solid 55-inch 4K TV with built-in Roku (which you’ll want anyway), and it’s down to $400. It will be difficult to find many TVs that offer this size and feature set for the price.

Amazon Echo Show + Cloud Cam – $300 ($50 off)

Date: Available Now

Buy on Amazon

We just reviewed the Amazon Cloud Cam and liked it a lot. With it, you can monitor your home from afar using Alexa. The Echo Show is basically another Alexa speaker, but with a 7-inch screen on it. Camera + Screen + Alexa. You can put the pieces together.

Kindle Paperwhite – $90 ($30 off)

Date: Nov. 19

Buy on Amazon

On Nov. 19, the Kindle Paperwhite will get a $30 discount. The Kindle is still the definitive digital way to read books (much better than a phone or tablet screen), and the Paperwhite has every essential Kindle feature you’ll want. It’s small, has touch, and has a light-up screen, making it our favorite overall Kindle.

PlayStation 4 Console Bundle – $200 ($100 off)

Date: Nov. 19-27

Buy on Amazon

Thanks to the Xbox One X, we’ve seen a slew of Xbox One discounts, but this generation’s most popular console is also getting a deep discount for the holidays. The standard black PS4 Slim is $100 off for an entire week. Sony is also heavily discounting its DualShock controllers (all colors) and a Skyrim PS4 + VR bundle at most retailers.

Roku Streaming Stick Plus – $50 ($20 off)

Date: Nov. 22 9 p.m. ET – Nov. 27

Buy on Amazon

Roku has become the de-facto standard for streaming media, and it’s fancy 4K TV models are not only under $100, but down to $50 for Black Friday and Cyber Monday. If you need an upgrade, or have a relative that is just getting into streaming, a Roku is an ideal way to watch Netflix and all the other streaming services.

Jaybird Freedom F5 – $50 ($100 off)

Date: Nov. 23-25

Buy on Best Buy

If you need a new pair of earbuds, or want to see if you like wireless, we recommend picking up this deal. We loved these buds, and at one third their regular price, you should, too. If you’re afraid of them selling out, they’re currently on a Pre-Black Friday sale of $70—also an awesome price.

Apple MacBooks and iMacs – $800 ($200 off)

Date: Nov. 23-25

Buy the MacBook Air for $800 ($200 off) on Best Buy. Buy the iMac for $800 ($200 off) on Best Buy

Best Buy is the place to be for Apple deals this holiday. During Black Friday, it will discount the MacBook Air and iMac by $200.

Amazon Fire HD 8 – $50 ($30 off)

Date: Nov. 23

Buy on Amazon

In our Fire HD 8 review we said it’s the best tablet you can buy for the price, by far, and that was at $80. At $50, it’s now as cheap as the standard Fire 7, (and is a far better device). If you’re an Amazon person and could use a tablet for TV, movies, reading, or music, this is the best value you’ll find.

Xbox One S Console Bundle – $190 ($60 off)

Date: Nov. 23

Buy on Best Buy, Microsoft Store (extra game included)

A number of retailers will offer the Xbox One S for $190 on Black Friday. This is a record low price, and unless you have a 4K TV with HDR, there’s no reason to get a One X over a One S this holiday. Microsoft’s Store has the best deal of the bunch. It includes a free game and one month Game Pass.

KitchenAid Mixer – $200 ($300 off)

Date: Nov. 23-25

Buy on Best Buy

You can certainly find cheaper mixers, but KitchenAid’s classic 450W mixer with bowl-lift is still highly regarded. We even love the model without arms. This model is deeply discounted for Black Friday weekend and if you’re in the mixing mood, check it out.

Google Home Mini – $30 ($20 off)

Date: Nov. 23-25

Buy on Walmart, Best Buy, Target,

In our review, we praised the Google Home Mini, though we wish it sounded better. This is a fantastic, cheap way to get a Google Assistant speaker in your house. If you want a better speaker, Walmart will also discount the standard Google Home by $50 during Black Friday.

Skullcandy Uproar Wireless Headphones – $25 ($25 off)

Date: Nov. 23

Buy on Walmart, Amazon

These wireless headphones won’t redefine audio, but they’re a bargain at $25. They have great reviews and should give you a great all-around sound without breaking the bank.

Apple iPad and iPad Mini ($80-$125 off)

Date: Nov. 23-25

Buy the iPad Mini 4 (128GB) for $275 ($125 off) on Best Buy

Buy the iPad (32GB) for $250 ($80 off) on Walmart

Tablets are still fun to have around the house to watch Netflix, get recipes for cooking, and toy around with. iPad is, by far, the best tablet to own. Both the newer $330 larger 10-inch iPad and more compact 8-inch iPad Mini 4 are going on sale.

HP Laptop with 8GB RAM, Intel Core i5, 2TB drive – $360 ($200 off)

Date: Nov. 23

Buy on the Microsoft Store

This HP laptop checks most of the boxes for a decent Windows 10 laptop, including having a touchscreen, a decent amount of RAM, and a very good Intel Core i5 processor. HP claims it will get about 8 hours of battery life.
