Black Friday 2022: date, tips, and deals we expect to see

While the 2022 Black Friday deals event might seem like eons away, the November sale will be here before you know it, and there's no time like the present to prepare yourself. Our Black Friday guide covers everything you need to know, such as the date, how to get the best deals, what offers you can expect, and what happened at last year's Black Friday sale event.

Black Friday 2022 falls on November 25 this year, but like in years past, we expect to see deals start to pop up as early as October. At last year's Black Friday sale, we saw offers earlier than ever, thanks to sales launched by retailers like Amazon, Best Buy, and Walmart as they tried to combat shipping delays and supply issues. In fact, according to Adobe Analytics (opens in new tab), spending was actually down 1.3% on Black Friday proper compared to last year, but if you looked at November as a whole, consumers spent $109.8 billion, which was up 11.9% compared to 2020.

This also aligns with what we saw - the best deals were launched in the weeks leading up to Black Friday, and we were left disappointed with offers on the big day. Consumers were also worried about product availability, so they took advantage of early Black Friday deals offered by the big-name online retailers. Early holiday shopping was a smart move as we noticed best-selling items like the AirPods Pro, the Apple Watch 6, MacBooks, and Amazon's own devices were out of stock in the run-up to Black Friday proper. We also saw price increases on certain items, including the AirPods Pro and MacBook Pro, which is unusual based on previous years.

So what were last year's hottest Black Friday deals? According to Amazon (opens in new tab), the Echo Dot, Fire TV Stick, Echo Show 5, AirPods, Beats Studio Buds, and the Revlon one-step hair dryer rounded up the top sellers. Adobe (opens in new tab) also reported that laptops, TVs, the Nintendo Switch, Apple Watch, and toys from brands like Hot Wheels, Nerf, and Paw Patrol were last year's Black Friday best-sellers. We expect a mix of that during the Black Friday 2022 deals event, plus new gadgets released this year.

Below you'll find more on our predictions for this year's sale, as well as how to find the best Black Friday deals, the top retailers, and looking back at last year's top offers. We'll be updating this page with all the latest Black Friday 2022 news, so make sure to bookmark this page as your one-stop-shop for Black Friday and if you don't want to wait till November, you can look forward to upcoming discounts at the 2022 Amazon Prime Day sale.

When is Black Friday 2022?

When is Black Friday 2022? The official Black Friday date for this year is November 25, 2022. The actual date shifts every year, but the day of the week stays the same: it's always the Friday after Thanksgiving.

At last year's sale, retailers kicked off their Black Friday deals earlier than ever due to concerns around shipping delays and supply issues. While we can't predict what will happen at this year's sale, we do think the trend of retailers offering early Black Friday deals is here to stay.

Where are the best places to find Black Friday deals?

Most online retailers offer Black Friday deals, but it's our job to sort through the thousands of offers to find the very best bargains from the bunch. You'll typically find the best Black Friday deals from big-name retailers like Walmart, Best Buy, and Target, with Amazon leading the pack.

Amazon is a Black Friday favorite, not only because they offer record-low prices but because they offer discounts on a wide variety of categories. So whether you're looking for tech items like laptops, TVs, or AirPods or searching for discounts on clothing, kitchen appliances, or toys -  Amazon is likely to offer Black Friday deals on the product you're after.

Other retailers that offer impressive Black Friday deals include Best Buy, Walmart, Target, Dell, Home Depot, Lowe's, and Overstock. It can be overwhelming with so many retailers and promotions, but that's where our deal expertise comes in. We go through every retailer to pick out the very best Black Friday deals so you can make sure you're getting the lowest price available. We also keep a live list of the best Black Friday sales from all the top online retailers, so you can easily jump to the offer you want.

If you don't want to wait till November to shop for Black Friday deals, we've included the current sales from the top online retailers just below.

How do I get the best Black Friday deals in 2022?

Homework really helps. Some retailers up prices from August through to October so they can offer supposedly amazing discounts on Black Friday, so don’t be fooled by such moves. 

They’re particularly prevalent in expensive consumer electronics such as TVs or laptops with product numbers rather than names, with products that were dropped down to a great bargain price suddenly being pushed back to their MSRP again. 

It’s also a very good idea to be flexible: for example, if you're interested in a Samsung 4K TV it’s best to think about the features you want rather than a specific model number: the BRV553ABD34-82C-9218-X may not be discounted on Black Friday 2022, but an almost identical set with the specification you want probably will be.

So do your research on what matters and we’ll do our best to give you the right comparison needed.

However, don’t be fooled into thinking that something that looks like a five-star set is the same but cheaper - certain elements (often with regards to screen quality or image processing) won’t be as high quality to achieve that lower price point.

Black Friday deals 2022: our predictions

We can make predictions of what we think Black Friday 2022 will bring based on last year's sale event. Due to concerns around shipping delays and supply issues, we saw retailers like Best Buy and Walmart launch Black Friday deals earlier than ever, with Amazon kicking things off in early October.

Typically retailers reserve their best deals for Black Friday proper, but last year we saw the best deals leading up to Black Friday. This might be why, according to Adobe Analytics (opens in new tab), spending was down 1.3% on Black Friday compared to last year, and Thanksgiving Day stayed flat. Consumers have spent $109.8 billion in November alone, which was up significantly (11.9%) compared to 2020. This falls in line with the trend of early sales, which drew consumers to make earlier purchases and not wait for Black Friday to snag a deal online.

So what does this mean for Black Friday 2022? It all depends on if retailers will face the same shipping and stock supply issues that plagued last year's sale. We do expect the trend of earlier sales to stay, but if stock issues aren't a problem, we think retailers will reserve their best deals for Black Friday proper to help keep the hype around Black Friday alive.

While it's still early to know exactly what kind of deals we'll see at the 2022 Black Friday sale, we can make predictions on what brands and products we'll see come November. According to Adobe (opens in new tab), the hottest items at last year's Black Friday sale included AirPods, the Apple Watch, laptops, TVs, consoles, and toys from brands like Hot Wheels, Paw Patrol, and Nerf. Amazon's top Black Friday sellers consisted of its own devices like the Echo Dot, Fire TV Stick, and smart bulbs, and some interesting items included the Revlon one-step hair dryer and the Colorfulkoala yoga pants.

We expect Apple devices, toys, laptops, TVs, and Amazon's own devices to be top sellers at the Black Friday 2022 sale and new gadgets that will be released this year.

Why is it called Black Friday

Let’s take a history lesson to find how why they call it Black Friday: the first known mention of Black Friday related to this shopping experience was in November 1951, when the journal Factory Management and Maintenance (opens in new tab) used it to describe people calling in sick the day after Thanksgiving so they could have an extra day off work. 

At the same time, US police were using the phrases “Black Friday” and “Black Saturday” to describe the horrendous traffic that occurred at the beginning of the pre-Christmas shopping season. 

In 1961, the local government moved to change the shopping season to “Big Friday” and “Big Saturday,” but it never caught on. The notion that it was the time when retailers moved 'back into the black' was seen far later and clearly an attempt to bring positivity to the term.

Laptops under $300

Samsung Chromebook 4 11.6-inch 32GB SSD: $199.99 $129 at Walmart (opens in new tab)
Save $70.99
- Samsung makes great stuff if you're on a budget and this entry-level Chromebook 4 is no exception to that. It's not super powerful, but you don't need much for ChromeOS and it's solidly built for the price. At 11.6-inches, it's a smaller machine but perfect for school work or casual browsing online. Being on the light-side makes it very portable too - perfect for the rucksack.

Lenovo Chromebook Flex 3 (11.6-inch, 2-in-1): $319 $159 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
(opens in new tab)
Save $60 - Another solid Chromebook option if you're on a budget, this 11-inch Lenovo Chromebook Flex 3 is going to be a good one for covering the basics. The Mediatek processor isn't mindblowing, but it'll browse fine and you've also got 64GB of storage on this model - something that's not always seen on these super cheap Chromebooks. Being a 2-in-1 laptop too is fantastic for the price, allowing use as both a laptop and a tablet, which is particularly good for young kids.

Lenovo IdeaPad 3 11.6-inch Chromebook, Intel Celeron, 4GB RAM, 64GB SSD: $219.99 $149.99 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
Save $70
– If you'd like to forgo the 2-in-1 form factor of the Flex 3 above for a more traditional laptop experience, then this IdeaPad 3 Chromebook is a fine option. It's got a more powerful Intel Celeron processor, 4GB of RAM, as well as that larger 64GB of storage too. Again, this one's more suited to simple browsing and school tasks but we'd absolutely consider it if you want something solid and subdued on a budget.

The MediaTek processor is an unusual step away from mainstays Intel and AMD that you would see in more premium models. However, you do get 4GB RAM and up to 10 hours of battery life with this Chromebook making it great value for money for a basic machine.

This Samsung Chromebook is the upgraded version of the above "super cheap" non-plus model. It's still decently powerful with a Intel Celeron processor, 4GB of RAM, and 32GB of storage, but you'll also get a larger 15.6-inch screen. That makes this one a bit less portable but generally more usable for day to day tasks like school work or streaming videos. While a bit pricier, this is definitely a great buy if you're looking for something with more solid build quality and a decent screen.

The best Black Friday deals: tablets

iPads

2021 Apple 10.2-inch iPad (256GB Wi-Fi): $479.99 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
Looking for a new iPad this Black Friday? Finding a cheap one right now is very, very hard since the baseline 10.2 model is literally sold out everywhere across the board. We would, however, recommend this 256GB Wi-Fi model as a good alternative. There's no price cut, but there's no upcharge either, which makes it a fair purchase today. Note - there are price cuts on the Pro and Air models today, but these devices are much, much pricier. See our tablets section for more options.

iPad Air 2020 (256GB, Wi-Fi): $749 $699 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
Save $40 -
All baseline 64GB iPad Air's have been pretty much snapped up at most retailers today but you can still get yourself a nice little price cut on the 256GB version today at Amazon. The bad news is it's a fair bit pricier than the 64GB model, but the good news is you'll have so, so much more space for all your media, apps, and games. At only $100 more than a full-price 64GB version, we'd say this one's definitely worth the upcharge.

Similar discounts have already sold out at Walmart and Amazon so we'd definitely pick this one up sooner rather than later if you're interested. If you're looking for a powerful tablet for design work you won't beat this model - although some would say it's overkill for the majority of casual applications.

The cheapest Fire tablet deal has the Fire 7 on sale for just $34.99. The 2019 tablet features a 7-inch display, 16GB of RAM, and up to seven hours of battery life.

Microsoft Surface Pro 7 12.3": $1,199.99 $799.99 at Best Buy (opens in new tab)
Save $400
- The Surface Pro 7 isn't a cheap piece of kit, but with a massive $400 knocked off it starts to look a little more attainable. Although it has now been superseded by the Pro 8, the 7 is still hugely powerful and puts up a good fight against similarly priced laptops. Unfortunately you'll have to buy the keyboard cover separately, but that's just how Microsoft does its thing.

Lenovo Tab P11 Pro | Wi-Fi | 128GB: $500 $359.99 at Walmart (opens in new tab)

Samsung Galaxy Tab A7 Lite 8.7" 64 GB: $199.99 $129.99 at Best Buy (opens in new tab)
Save $70
- Fancy something just a little cheaper? How about the Galaxy Tab A7 Lite? While you won't want to push it with heavy-duty video editing and the like, as something for day to day streaming, handing over to the kids or chucking in your backpack on a day out, it's an excellent option.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 11” 256GB with S Pen: $729.99 $529.99 at Best Buy (opens in new tab)
Save $200
- Big savings on the Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 here, with an S Pen thrown in for good measure. The S7 is as close to an iPad killer as Android tablets have got so far, and while the app support isn't quite as robust as Apple's offerings, it's a true rival to Microsoft's Surface Pro.

It's still good value as all of these items would cost around $370 at full price.

Games

Guardians of the Galaxy: $59.99 $26.99 at GameStop (opens in new tab)
Save $33
– A surprising 58% discount is already available on Guardians of the Galaxy at Amazon. The Eidos Montreal RPG has reviewed well and has only been out for a month so such a considerable price cut so soon is hardly ever seen. It's a smashing deal that's still live now Black Friday has passed.

Call of Duty Vanguard: $69 from $39 at GameStop (opens in new tab)
Save $30
– GameStop is here with the lowest price on Call of Duty Vanguard just two weeks after launch. At just $39 it's one of the best Black Friday gaming deals you can find today. We don't know how long this offer will be available for so if you've had your eye on the latest entry in the series you probably won't find a lower price this year.

Outriders: $39.99 $19.99 at Best Buy (opens in new tab)
Save $20
– A bargain price for one of the year's biggest surprise hits. This low price since mid-October so it's not a new low for Black Friday but it seems unlikely it'll be discounted further in a couple of weeks. Definitely one to pick up if you like your looter shooters.
