Best Buy’s best Black Friday tech deals
Best Buy’s Black Friday deals have already begun—you can pick up TVs, streaming devices, Apple gear, and more for much less right now. There’s no need to wait until later in the week.

In fact, given previous years, you might want to buy now. Best Buy’s discounts usually hold all through Black Friday week (including Cyber Monday), so the longer you wait, the more you risk items selling out. Our selections for the best bargains either scored high in our reviews or are extremely popular, with discounts that put them near or below the previous all-time low price.

Are Best Buy’s Black Friday deals actually good?

Some of Best Buy’s deals are quite good! The tricky part is knowing which are the best deals and which aren’t, since major retailers generally put a bunch of stuff on sale. Not all items are solid products, and not all discounts are solid price drops. That’s where we come in—we sift through the sales to find good gear at truly great prices.

Are any of the Black Friday deals at Best Buy lower quality?

It depends on the product category, but usually retailers only have special models of TVs made for specific periods. For most everything else, the items are the same as you’d find throughout the rest of the year. But again, that’s what we’re here for: We’ve carefully examined the specs and overall value of the deals listed above, so you can shop with more confidence and less hassle.

What kind of Black Friday deals can I expect at Best Buy?

Best Buy discounts most product categories during Black Friday and Cyber Monday. During the rest of the year, Best Buy’s sales aren’t as high as other retailers—as one of the few stores that still has physical locations, it can’t be as aggressive in slashing prices. But during November, it wades much deeper into the fray. The trick is to know which items are also sold by other vendors: For common items like headphones, Amazon Echo speakers, Fitbits, and other consumer electronics, any good discount should match or even undercut a rival store.

Is there any advantage to shopping at Best Buy during Black Friday or Cyber Monday?

For people who don’t have Amazon Prime subscriptions or can’t trust deliveries to arrive safely, Best Buy lets you get in on Black Friday discounts in a convenient way. You can order online and then opt to pick up in store. It can also be easier to make returns, since Best Buy will accept those in store as well, too. But the answer to this question is dependent on where you live and what’s easiest for you.
