The Best Black Friday Deals You Can Get At Best Buy Right Now

Our colleagues at the Verge are technology experts. So when they tell us that there are good Black Friday deals at Best Buy  — well, we look through those deals, leave behind a couple of the more advanced things like a nearly $2,000 gaming laptop, add a few finds of our own, and bring the more-useful-to-the-average-non-technophile stuff to you.

There are substantial discounts to take advantage of, like a 65-inch LG OLED TV (which is seriously one of the best TVs we think you can buy), the original Nintendo Switch, the Series 4 Apple Watch, and a Sonos soundbar. But act quickly, because things are selling out fast! Once an item’s stock is low enough online, it becomes an in-store purchase only.

We should note that Best Buy is constantly updating its deals, and we’re constantly watching. So check back here frequently for updates of Black Friday sales on big-ticket appliances, vacuum cleaners, home security systems, smart speakers, and phones. Incidentally, for more early tech deals, check out our Black Friday coverage of the Amazon and Walmart sales.

Video game systems and accessories

Sony Playstation 4 Pro Console

Comes with a huge 1 TB hard drive for $100 off the original price.

Microsoft XBox 1

Save $150, and it comes with Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order.

Nintendo Joy-Con Controllers

These joy-con controllers for Nintendo Switch also come in other colors including gray, green, and neon yellow.


Ultimate Ears Wonderboom Bluetooth Speaker

The U.E. Boom Bluetooth speaker has long been one of the top speakers you can buy. This four-inch-tall sibling is ultraportable — and water-resistant, for any dreams you may have of listening to music poolside.

JBL Flip 4 Bluetooth Speaker

Another great water-resistant speaker with a slightly different form factor and a 12-hour battery (as opposed to the ten-hour Ultimate Ears above).

Sonos Beam Soundbar

As TV sets get thinner, their sound gets worse. This speaker from Sonos is an upgrade for any set. And it comes with a $20 Best Buy Gift Card!

Desktops, laptops, and tablets

HP Pavilion 23.8" Touch-Screen All-In-One

HP’s all-in-one is nearly as beautiful as the iMac, has an Intel Core i5 processor, 8GB of memory, and a 256GB solid-state drive (SSDs are quieter than traditional hard drives). Plus it’s a touchscreen, which is nice for some programs.

Microsoft Surface Pro 7

Comes with a fast and capable Intel i5 processor and 8GB of RAM. And they throw in the cover (usually another $129) basically for free.

13.3" Apple MacBook Air With 8GB of Memory and 128GB Solid State Hard Drive

This lightweight MacBook Air, which should be good for most users who don’t plan on editing a full-length film on their computers, is $200 off.

10.2" Apple 32GB iPad With Wi-Fi

2019 iPads are as much as $100 off, including this 32GB model that’s marked down $80.

Earbuds and headphones

JLab Audio JBuds Air True Wireless Earbuds

You’re not going to get the best audio quality from these, but $30 is practically stocking-stuffer territory. And if you lose them, which we all do eventually, you won’t feel that bad.

Jabra Elite 65t Wireless Earbuds

If you don’t want to spend the money on AirPods or AirPods Pro, these earbuds are a good alternative. Especially if you have big earholes.

Beats by Dr. Dre Powerbeats3

Also a great option for those with big earholes. They’re lighter than the Jabras and will stay in better during workouts.

Beats by Dr. Dre Beats Studio 3 Wireless Headphones

These solid headphones, which also come in gray and tan, are $140 off.

Sony WH-1000XM3 Wireless Noise Canceling Headphones

David Pogue’s favorite noise-canceling headphones are $70 off.


Dyson Cyclone V10 Animal Pro Cordless Stick Vacuum

Strat writer Lori Keong loved the power of this vacuum. And now you can get it for $200 off.

KitchenAid Professional 500 5QT, 450 Watt Bowl Lift Stand Mixer

This kitchen staple has never been cheaper. This model doesn’t have a the typical tilting head, which means it is more powerful. (For more great gifts for bakers, click here.)

KitchenAid Pasta Cutter and Fresh Prep Attachment Bundle

If the person you’re shopping for already has a mixer, why not get him a great accessory, like this pasta cutter that’s 60 percent off?

Samsung 28-Cu.-Ft. French Door Refrigerator

You deserve a bigger fridge. This full-depth French-door option from Samsung can fit all of your Thanksgiving prep. (The adjustable shelves will even accommodate a turkey.) And it even has an ice-maker with a bin that’s actually big enough to handle company.

Insignia 6-qt Multifunction Pressure Cooker

If you want an actual Instant Pot, you can expect to pay between $50 and $100 for it. Or you can get Best Buy’s house-brand equivalent, which has nearly 2,000 reviews and a 4.7-star rating.

iRobot Roomba 890 App-Controlled Self-Charging Robot Vacuum

There really is no more enjoyable way to vacuum than letting a robot do it for you.

Keurig K Classic K50 Single Serve K-Cup Pod Coffee Maker

Doing your own pour-over in the morning may make you feel like a home barista, but a K cup is fast and simple.

TVs and accessories

LG 55-inch C9 OLED TV

OLED TVs have the best picture available, with the highest contrast and darkest blacks. Since they don’t need backlights, they’re also the thinnest screens available. You’re going to pay a premium for that compared to other types of TVs, but it can be worth it. This is the lowest price we’ve seen for the 55-inch C9. There are also sales on the 65-inch version and an enormous 77-inch model.

65" LG B9 Series OLED 4K TV with HDR

The B9 is step below the C9, but the difference will be imperceptible for most people.

Samsung 65-Inch 4K 8 Series Ultra HD

A beautiful 4K picture with 120 Hz refresh rate, so quick-moving objects won’t look blurry. The 55-inch model might be the sweet spot for most viewers: plenty of TV size for an incredibly reasonable price of $550.

Samsung 65" 4K UHD 7 Series

Compared to the 8 Series above, the 7 has one fewer HDMI port and a refresh rate of 60 Hz instead of 120 Hz. Those numbers matter only if you you’re hooking up more than three components like cable boxes, streaming devices, and gaming consoles, or if you’re very concerned about getting a slight blur when things move quickly across the screen.

Roku 4K Streaming Stick

Make any TV a Smart TV.
