We are officially a week away from Black Friday. But as we’ve told you before, it’s shaped to be unlike any Thanksgiving week we’ve ever seen before. In fact, many Black Friday sales are already underway. But when we look at the best deals next week, it’s time for our annual tradition of naming the top 10 Black Friday deals coming down the pipeline over the next few days.
As always, you want to make sure you follow 9to5Toys on all of our vertical pages ahead of Black Friday. This is the best way to make sure you do not miss any of the best deals through Thanksgiving Week and into Cyber Monday.
0) Powerbeats Pro goes for $ 160
For the sporty technician among us, the Powerbeats Pro has been a solid alternative to the AirPods Pro. Powerbeats are great for training and offer a variety of colors and many of the same features found on the advanced AirPods. This year, Powerbeats Pro will be it $ 160 at Amazon on Black Friday, which is a price we have seen once before and matches the lowest level. It’s down from the usual $ 249 going rate.
9) Go big or go home with this VIZIO deal
Black Friday means television. And while the usual selection of doorbusters in the store is not available this time, there will still be plenty of great TV deals to get. Our best choice is VIZIO’s 70-inch 4K UHDTV for $ 478 at Walmart. That’s at least a $ 100 off the regular rate and one of the best deals we’ve seen on this model. If you need a big TV on a budget, this is the deal for you.
8) Instant pot time
While we always trust a solid TV deal to come Black Friday, the shopping holiday has also become synonymous with Instant Pot stoves. Heading this time is Instant Pot Duo Nova at $ 70. It is down from the usual price of $ 120 and in line with the best we see. This offer will be available at Amazon and other retailers.
7) Amazon’s new Echo devices are discounted for the first time
Back in September, Amazon introduced a number of new Echo speakers. However, these units were not set up on Prime Day. So that leaves us with Black Friday, where Echo Dot, Echo Dot with Clock and standard Echo will all be discounted for the first time. Headlining will be Echo in full size, which falls to $ 70 from the usual $ 100 ongoing rate.
6) There are many MacBook deals
Because Apple has just released a new batch of MacBooks in recent weeks, you can expect previous-generation models to be heavily discounted throughout Black Friday. Best Buy’s Black Friday ad has pretty much confirmed so much with up to $ 250 off Apple’s 13-inch MacBook Pro and Air. You can expect Apple’s 16-inch MacBook Pro to see as much as $ 400 in discount as well.
So what about the new M1-enabled MacBooks? Well, we’ve already seen $ 50 off both the new MacBook Pro and Air. The question is, could we see the number jump to the $ 100 discount? This is unknown territory, as Apple has not typically released new hardware so close to November.
5) Nest Mini will still be a big player
While the Echo Dot will be popular with many customers this year, the Nest Mini is also bound to be a highlight. This year it will drop down to $ 19 from the usual price of $ 49. For those in the Android ecosystem, this will be an easy purchase if you want to dive into the Assistant for the first time.
4) Fire TV Stick at $ 18 is an easy sock
Amazon also has a trio of new Fire TV streaming devices to be celebrated throughout Black Friday this year. It includes the new Fire TV Stick Lite, which is coming soon $ 18 from the usual price of $ 30. This will just be the second time we see it sold.
Those looking for an upgraded experience would like to reach for the standard Fire TV Stick on $ 28 (Reg. $ 40) or the full 4K model at $ 30 (Reg. $ 50).
3) iPads are in front and in the middle again
We already know that iPads will be on sale at almost all mainstream retailers. All the latest models from Apple, including the iPad Air, 10.2-inch iPad and both sizes of the iPad Pro, get special discounts. Look especially for Apple’s more entry-level models to be up to $ 100 off.
2) Pixel 5 will be for sale
Google is setting the pace by taking $ 50 off Pixel 5, when it launches its own Black Friday deals on November 25, bringing the price down to $ 649. , Best Buy and other retailers carrying the handset.
1) Apple Watch Series 3 for $ 119 returns!
Apple Watch Series 3 will be on sale from $ 119 at Walmart, which matched last year’s hugely popular deal, which sold out almost instantly. So what do we expect this year? It will be another hot ticket item, but expect more inventory.
