Early Black Friday Deals are Slashing Prices on TVs, AirPods, Laptops and More

·6 min read

Advertiser Disclosure: At Slickdeals, we work hard to find the best deals. Some products in our articles are from partners who may provide us with compensation, but this doesn’t change our opinions.

Retailers across the country are gearing up for Black Friday, but that doesn’t mean you need to wait until next month to see massive discounts on today’s hottest products. Early Black Friday deals have become a second shopping holiday all their own. This is especially true for technology and gaming products.

Whether you’re looking for a cheap pair of AirPods or need a slick new addition to your game room, these Early Black Friday deals are among the best we’ve seen this year. A few of these products might see steeper discounts in November. You can purchase the majority, however, without fear of a better price on Black Friday.

Garmin Venu 43mm GPS Smartwatch

Garmin’s highly rated Venu GPS Smartwatch is currently available at its lowest price ever on Amazon. Featuring a five-day battery life and vivid AMOLED display, it’s a frugal choice for anyone put off by the price of both the Apple Watch and Samsung Galaxy Watch. Not only does it boast many of the same features as its expensive counterparts, but at just $149.99, it’s quite the deal. Currently, the deal is only active on the Black watch.

Samsung 70-Inch 4K TV

Black Friday always brings some of the best TV deals of the year, but if you’re looking to pick something up in time for Thanksgiving, consider the Samsung 70-inch 4K TV. Currently discounted by $150, you’d be hard-pressed to find another TV in this price range that offers as much as this gigantic screen from Samsung.

With built-in support for some of today’s most popular streaming platforms – including Netflix, Hulu and YouTube TV – you can get rid of that old Roku device and declutter your entertainment center. It’s not the biggest discount of this crop of Early Black Friday deals, but there’s no doubt Samsung’s TV is a steal at under $600.

Apple AirPods with Charging Case

Walmart’s Early Black Friday AirPods deal doesn’t begin until November 10th, but it’s a good idea to plan ahead for this one. Not only is it one of the lowest prices we’ve seen for the 2nd Gen AirPods, but inventory is bound to sell out fast.

Samsung Galaxy Buds+

If you’re an Android user, fear not – Walmart has an Early Black Friday deal for you, too. Starting on November 3rd, you’ll be able to pick up the Galaxy Buds+ at a $90 discount. Like the AirPods deal, you’ll need to plan ahead if you want to snag these before they sell out.

TCL Class 5-Series QLED 4K TV

A variety of TCL QLED 4K TVs are currently discounted, although you’ll find the best savings on the 65-inch model. Often forgotten in favor of its more popular rivals – such as Sony and Samsung – don’t sleep on this impressive deal. TCL makes some of the most vivid displays on the market, and it’s not often they’re available at such a steep discount.

JBL Club 650NC Headphones

Use promo code SDCLUB650BTN to save $150 on these premium JBL headphones. This is the lowest price we’ve ever seen, and it’s doubtful Black Friday will bring a better deal.

Although it won’t be running any high-powered applications, the Acer Spin 311 Chromebook is perfect for student. It’s also a great choice for anyone seeking a reliable device for checking email or watching Netflix. Plenty of other laptops and PCs are bound to be discounted on Black Friday in addition to this one.

MSI Delta Gaming Laptop

Gaming laptops are a huge target for Black Friday discounts, but you can get a head start on the competition with this surprising discount from Best Buy. The MSI Delta gaming laptop is a powerful and capable machine, and this is one of the better prices we’ve seen for it. It includes a Ryzen R7-5800 and 1TB SSD.

MSI Katana FG66 Gaming Laptop

The MSI Katana FG66 sale is a bit limited. You’ll need to have a Micro Center store nearby and opt for in-store pickup – but it’s a great way to snag a laptop with the powerful GeForce RTX 3050 Ti under $1,000. As is the case with most Early Black Friday laptop deals, don’t worry if this one isn’t a perfect fit. Dozens more deals on similar laptops should be arriving next month.

Like the Micro Center sale above, this discount is only available at select Walmart locations around the country. However, if you’re trying to create the ultimate game room, check your local Walmart for this arcade cabinet.

Xbox Series X|S Wireless Controller

Xbox Series X controllers typically only see discounts of a few dollars, so this $10 off promotion is actually one of the better deals we’ve seen throughout 2021. Bigger discounts might roll around on Black Friday, but right now it’s hard to beat the sale going on at Target.

Xbox Wireless Headset

The Xbox Wireless Headset debuted earlier this year, but it’s already available at a discount on Amazon. Microsoft typically has plenty of Black Friday promotions available the day after Thanksgiving, and we wouldn’t be surprised to see the Xbox Wireless Headset discounted again in November. It’s unlikely, however, that its price will drop much lower than this.
