Black Friday 2021: the best early sales and deals we expect to see

Black Friday deals 2021

Black Friday deals are arriving early, and yes, you heard that right! While we're still in November, retailers like Best Buy, Target, and Amazon have launched early holiday sales, which include Black Friday-level deals on tech, appliances, toys, clothing, and more. We've created the ultimate guide with everything you need to know about the official sale, plus today's best early Black Friday deals.

While we know the official date of Black Friday 2021 (November 26), retailers like Amazon and Target have recently launched holiday sales that offer Black Friday discounts on best-selling items, including tech, clothing, appliances, toys, and more. Retailers are pushing early sales in a bid to avoid potential shipping delays and help consumers get a head start on holiday shopping.

Amazon's Epic Deals sale began last week with "Black Friday-worthy" discounts throughout the month of October. So far, we've been impressed thanks to record-low prices on items like AirPods, OLED TVs, the Instant Pot, and Amazon's own devices.

Best Buy just announced that on Tuesday, October 19, the retailer will kick off its official Black Friday deals with a four-day sale. The retailer's early Black Friday sale will include discounts on 4K TVs, Beats headphones, laptops, and Samsung appliances. This is the earliest official Black Friday sale we've seen, and we expect more retailers to follow suit.

Target has also joined in on the fun with a Holiday Best Deals sale which includes in-store and online savings on clothing, tech, appliances, beauty items, furniture, and decor. Target will be releasing new bargains every day throughout the holiday season and highlighting a deal of the day.

Make sure to bookmark this page, as we'll be updating it with all the best early offers and all the latest Black Friday 2021 news. We'll also tell you everything else you need to know to score your dream Black Friday deal, including when sales start, how to find the best bargains, and what Black Friday deals you can expect.

Early Black Friday sales: quick links

Can you shop for official Black Friday sales right now? Technically, no, but retailers like Target and Amazon have recently launched holiday sales which include Black Friday-worthy deals on items we typically see discounted during the November sale. We usually don't see offers begin this early, but retailers are preparing for potential shipping delays, and early Black Friday deals allow customers to get a head start on their holiday shopping to ensure deliveries get there in time.

We've combed through today's offers to bring you the best early Black Friday sales and stand-out deals below, including AirPods, the Instant Pot, TVs, and more. While we can't guarantee you'll see a lower price during the official Black Friday sale, the deals we've selected are record-low prices, so you're sure to snag a bargain either way.

Black Friday deals 2021: our predictions

Black Friday 2021 should continue last year's trend of not just offering discounts but offering discounts on items you'll actually want to buy as retailers jockey for more limited wallets against fierce online competition.

According to Adobe Analytics, 2020 saw a 21% uplift in consumer online spending marking it the second-largest online spending day in U.S. history, coming in behind Cyber Monday 2019.

Last year's biggest Black Friday money makers? According to Adobe, the most popular items included Hot Wheels, Lego sets, AirPods, Apple Watches, Amazon Echo devices, and Samsung TVs.

We expect the Black Friday 2021 sales event to also offer similar deals on Apple's latest devices, such as Airpods, the latest Apple Watch, and 2021 iPads. We should also see significant discounts on Amazon's own devices as well as deals on this year's hottest toys and kitchen appliances.

Amazon is already giving us a sneak peek by launching its Epic Deals sale, which according to the retailer, offers "Black Friday-worthy" deals throughout the month of October from categories including tech, appliances, fashion, beauty, toys, and Amazon's own devices. Amazon's sale can give us a preview of what Black Friday deals we can expect in November, and so far, we've seen discounts on AirPods, OLED TVs, robot vacuums, and smart home devices.

Best Buy just announced that it would be releasing Black Friday deals starting on Tuesday, October 18. The retailer will be discounting 4K TVs, headphones, laptops, and Samsung appliances, and the early Black Friday sale will end on Friday, October 22.

How do I get the best Black Friday deals in 2021?

Homework can really help when it comes to finding the best Black Friday deals. Some retailers up prices from August through to October to 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 products that were dropped down to a great bargain price suddenly being pushed back to their MSRP again. 

It’s also an excellent idea to be flexible: for example, if you're after a Samsung UHD 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 2021, 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 to score the best Black Friday deals.

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: FAQs

When is Black Friday 2021?

When is Black Friday 2021? The official Black Friday date for this year is November 26, 2021. The actual date shifts every year, but the day of the week stays the same: it's always the Friday after Thanksgiving.

Last year, retailers kicked off the Black Friday sales earlier than ever to create a safer shopping experience and avoid shipping delays due to the Coronavirus pandemic. We can't predict the circumstances around this year's sale, but we should still see Black Friday deals start to pop up at the end of October.

What Black Friday deals can I shop for now?

Last year we saw Black Friday deals launch earlier than ever as retailers tried to create a safer shopping experience in response to the Coronavirus Pandemic. We also saw a move to the competitive arena of online sales, with more and more retailers on the web than ever before.

So what does this mean for the Black Friday 2021 sale? Retailers are gearing up for expected shipping delays, which means Black Friday sales are starting earlier than ever before.

Best Buy just announced that it's kicking off the holiday shopping season with a four-day Black Friday sale starting on Tuesday, October 18. The retailer is offering massive discounts on 4K TVs, Chromebooks, headphones, and Samsung appliances. Best Buy is also offering a Black Friday Price Guarantee, which means that any products featured in the sale will not go any lower in price before Black Friday. If, for some reason, they do, you'll be automatically refunded.

Amazo started earlier than everyone by launching its Epic Deals sale at the beginning of November. While it's not an official Black Friday sale, the press release did mention its promotion offers "Black Friday-worthy" deals from brands like Apple, Sony, Samsung, and Instant Pot.

Target is also rolling out early Black Friday deals at its Holiday Best Deals sale, which includes discounts across every category throughout the shopping season. The retailer is trying to compete with Amazon by offering discounts on tech, appliances, toys, clothing, furniture, decor, and more. Target is also offering a holiday price match guarantee, so if an item you purchased goes lower before Christmas Eve, Target will price match, so you're guaranteed to get the best deal available.

Early Black Friday deals not only allow you to get a head start on your holiday shopping, but you also won't have to worry about your gifts getting delivered in time. We've listed the best sales from your favorite retailers below so that you can browse early offers today.

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 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.

The best Black Friday deals from last year

If you'd like to see what was on sale during last year's Black Friday deals event, we've included the top bargains below. Last year's sale included huge discounts on everything from TVs, laptops, and headphones to kitchen appliances, vacuums, toys, and so much more. Looking back at last year's sale can help us predict what will be discounted at the Black Friday 2021 sale.

Black Friday deals: TVs

Black Friday TV deals are one of the most popular sale categories thanks to record-low prices on QLED, OLED, and 4K TVs. Last year, retailers like Walmart offered incredible bargains on budget sets from brands like Hisense and Vizio. These stunningly low prices didn't last long, though, and the biggest offers sold out fast. We saw premium OLED and QLED TVs drop to record-low prices at Amazon and Best Buy, and we already see that trend in today's early Black Friday deals.

Insignia 70-inch 4K UHD smart TV: $649.99 $549.99 at Best Buy
This 70-inch Insignia is now featuring a fantastic $100 saving at the Best Buy Black Friday sale. The smart TV comes equipped with Fire TV and Amazon Alexa fully built in - not bad value at all if you're looking for a one-stop inexpensive TV that's useful right out of the box.

VIZIO 55-inch OLED 4K UHD SmartCast TV: $1,299.99 $899.99 at Best Buy
Save $400 –
This was one of the best Black Friday TV deals from last year  - a Vizio 55-inch OLED TV from Best Buy. OLED TVs are always popular during Black Friday and we expect to see the best prices yet at this year's sale event.
 

Samsung 75-inch QLED Q70T Series TV: $2,199.99 $1,497.99 at Amazon
Save $702
- You can score an epic $700 discount on the Samsung 75-inch QLED TV just ahead of the Black Friday deals event. The Q70T Series TV delivers a premium picture experience thanks to Quantum Dot technology, and includes Amazon Alexa for voice control.

Black Friday deals: laptops and computing

If you're looking to upgrade your machine, the Black Friday deals event is one of the best opportunities to score a laptop at a record-low price. Last year's Black Friday favorites included huge discounts on the latest MacBooks, and retailers like Dell and HP offered best-ever deals on their best-selling laptops. We expect to see similar Black Friday deals at this year's sale, plus we could see first-time price cuts on gaming laptops with Nvidia RTX 3000 series graphics cards.

Apple MacBook Pro 13-inch (M1, 2020): $1,299.99 $1,199.99 at B&H Photo
Price drop -
B&H Photo is also offering the new MacBook Pro with M1 chip for $100 off if you don't want to go with Amazon. Like with Amazon, this deal applies to both the 256GB and 512GB models, so you don't have to compromise and still save some money. Normally not a saving worth talking about - but this is a hyper-new (and excellent) laptop.

Acer Chromebook 314: $299 $219 at Walmart
Save $80 -
this is a great Chromebook for browsing and working on, with a 14-inch screen, 4GB RAM and 32GB storage. That's a little on the light side, so you may need to use Google Drive storage to save docs. The 12.5 hour battery life is superb, though.

Dell XPS 13, Intel Core i3, 8GB RAM, 256GB: $849.99 $649.99 at Dell
Save $200 –
Dell's Black Friday sale includes killer deals on its best-selling laptops and last year we saw the powerful XPS 13 laptop on sale for just $649.99. That was the best deal we'd ever seen and a fantastic price for a 13-inch laptop packed with a 10th-gen Intel i3 processor, 8GB of RAM, and a 256GB SSD.

Black Friday deals: tablets

One of last year's most popular Black Friday deals was on the 2020 iPad Air 4, which was on sale for a record-low price of $569.99 at Amazon. This year we could see the first significant discounts on the all-new iPad Mini and 2021 10.2-inch iPad, but we predict like the iPad Air, those deals will go fast. We also expect Amazon to offer record-low prices on its Kindle and Fire tablet lineup.

Apple iPad Air 4 | 64GB | Wi-Fi: $599 $569.99 at Amazon
Save $29 –
This deal saves you $29 on the most affordable configuration of Apple's newest iPad, with its 10.9-inch Liquid Retina screen and 12MP rear camera.

1TB: $1,499 $1,349

All-new Kindle: $89.99 $59.99 at Amazon
Save $30
- The 2019 Amazon Kindle is on sale for $59.99 at Amazon. That's the lowest price we've found for the 6-inch e-reader that features a built-in adjustable font light so you can enjoy reading your favorite books indoors and outdoors.

Black Friday deals: smartwatches and wearables

The Apple Watch is always a best-seller during Black Friday, thanks to record-low prices on older devices like the Series 3 and first-time discounts on Apple's latest release. We're hoping to see the Apple Watch 7 on sale at the Black Friday 2021 sale, as well as all-time low prices for the Series 3 and 6. Not into the Apple Watch? Black Friday also offers impressive discounts from brands like Fitbit, Samsung, and more.

Apple Watch SE 40mm: $309 $289 on Amazon
Save $20
- Amazon has the Apple Watch SE on sale for $289. The New Apple Watch SE is a good choice if you're looking for the smartwatch essentials in a modern chassis with a bit more power than the Series 3.

Apple Watch Series 6 (40mm, GPS): $399 $329.98 at Amazon
One of the most popular Black Friday deals from last year was the Apple Watch Series 6 that was on sale for a record-low of $329.98. The Apple Watch 6 was just released before last year's Black Friday sale, so we were pretty impressed with the steep discount from Amazon. We're hoping to see similar discounts this Black Friday on Apple's latest smartwatch, the Apple Watch 7.
View Deal

Fitbit Charge 4: $149 $99.95 on Best Buy
Pick up a Fitbit Charge 4 for $50 off with this early Black Friday Best Buy deal, a savings of 33% off the list price. The Fitbit Charge 4 is a great basic fitness tracker with up to seven days of battery life, GPS, Fitbit Pay, and extra features with Fitbit Premium.

Black Friday deals: headphones and audio

If you're looking to score on premium headphones, then you can always count on Black Friday to offer incredible deals from brands like Apple, Sony, Beats, Bose, and more. The AirPods Pro were a best-seller last year, and we hope at the Black Friday 2021 to see a new record-low for the earbuds, plus a first-time discount on the rumored AirPods 3.

Sony WH-1000XM4 headphones: $350 $278 at Best Buy
Save $72 - The Sony WH-1000XM4 over-ear headphones, some of the best noise-canceling headphones on the market, are seriously discounted at $72 off with this Black Friday deal. These are currently TechRadar's top-rated wireless headphones, beating out many others in product testing.

Apple AirPods (2019) with Charging Case $159 $109.99 at Amazon
Save $50 -
You can get the Apple AirPods with charging case on sale for $110 at Amazon in this early Black Friday deal. The truly wireless earbuds come with a charging case that provides a further 20 hours of battery life and up to three hours of talk time on a single charge.

Bose QC35 II: $349.99 $199 at Walmart
Save $50 - Bose is no stranger to great comfort and impressive sound quality, and the Bose QC35 II doesn't fall far from the tree. These wireless headphones also boast two levels of active noise cancellation, a 2-microphone system, and are on sale for a massively low $99.99.

Black Friday deals: gaming and consoles

At last year's Black Friday sale, discounts on gaming discounts were scarce and we mostly saw bundled console deals, which didn't stick around for long. Thanks to stock issues, scoring a Black Friday deal on a PS4 or PS5 will be extremely difficult this year, and you'll have better luck with Play Station accessories such as headsets, hard drives, controllers, and games.

Nintendo Switch (Gray) with Mario Glassware bundle: $339.98: $299 at GameStop
Get the elusive Nintendo Switch with a set of Mario-themed glasses for the console's retail price. This will sell out fast, and should make a great gift set. Also available in Neon, and with the Animal Crossing Switch.

Nintendo Switch Lite | carry case | 128GB memory card: $287.97 $239.97 at Best Buy
Save $50 -
Best Buy has this full bundle costing $287.97 when purchased separately, and it's true you're saving some cash with this $50 discount, however it's worth noting that the 128GB memory card is available on sale elsewhere as well. It's easier to grab this all in one place, but this isn't as good a bundle offer as it appears at first glance.

Nintendo Switch - Animal Crossing: New Horizons edition: $299.99 at Amazon
The Nintendo Switch has seen its fair share of stock difficulties over the past couple of months (and even the last few days as demand has surged once again in the latest Black Friday deals).

Black Friday deals: smart home

Black Friday deals on smart home devices always offer impressive discounts, especially for Amazon's own devices like the Echo Dot, Fire TV Stick, Ring Doorbell, and Blink home security cameras. We saw record-low prices last year on Amazon's latest devices, we expect to see similar deals at this year's Black Friday 2021 sale.

Fire TV Stick Lite with Alexa Voice Remote: $29.99 $17.99 at Amazon
Save $12 –
You can always score record-low prices on Amazon devices during the Black Friday deals event and a favorite from last year was the all-new Fire TV Stick Lite that was marked down to a record-low price of just $17.99.

Save $80
- For a limited time, you can get the Ring Video Doorbell Pro on sale for a record-low price of $169.99. The Ring Pro features advanced motion detection and works with Amazon Alexa to send alerts to your Echo devices.

Black Friday deals: mattresses

Black Friday deals on mattresses never disappoint with best-ever offers and freebies included with your order. Some standout deals from last year included massive discounts from Nectar, Purple and Casper and we expect to see similar if not better deals at this year's Black Friday sale. 

Nectar Memory Foam Mattress: from $798 $499 + $399 of free gifts at Nectar
Save up to $800 –
If you're looking for a mattress this Black Friday, the popular brand Nectar never disappoints with fantastic deals and incredible value. Last year we saw its best offer yet, with a $400 discount on the mattress depending on the size you buy, and $399-worth of free gifts added to your order.

Purple Mattress: from $599 $549 at Purple
Save up to $300 - The Purple mattress famously uses a unique gel grid and layers of foam to deliver flexible, tailored support. Lots of people love it - it averages an impressive 4.5 out of 5 stars from over 25,000 user reviews on the Purple site. This Black Friday deal gives you up to a $100 discount on the flagship Purple mattress, and you can also save another $200 by bundling pillows, sheets and a mattress protector with your mattress order. 

Casper Original Mattress: from $595 $476 | Casper
Price cut!
Casper has cut 20% off its mattresses in its Black Friday deals event. That means you can now grab the Casper Original Mattress from just $476 for a twin, down from $595. It's designed to suit any type of sleeper, with three layers of foam that support your body and keep you cool at night. (Prefer a hybrid mattress? The Casper Original comes in a hybrid version too, for $556, saving you $139.)

Black Friday deals: home and kitchen

If you want to score a Black Friday deal on the latest and greatest kitchen gadget, then have no fear. Black Friday always offers killer deals on air fryers, coffee makers, and pressure cookers from brands like Instant Pot, Keurig, Ninja, and more. We expect to see similar discounts from last year's Black Friday, which included record-low prices on the latest air fryers, Instant Pot, and coffee makers.

Instant Pot Duo Plus Mini 9-in-1 Electric Pressure Cooker: $99.95 $79.99 at Amazon
Save $19.96 –
The best-selling Instant Pot is a Black Friday favorite, so it's no surprise that the pressure cooker was a hot seller last year. We expect to see the Instant Pot back on sale at this year's Black Friday sale, but keep in mind, this device tends to sell out quickly, so you'll have to act fast to secure a bargain this year.

Bella Pro Series 4.2-qt. Analog Air Fryer: $59.99 $29.99 at Best Buy
Pick up a cheap air fryer deal at the Best Buy Black Friday sale. The Bella 4.2-qt air fryer allows you to air fry, broil, bake, roast, and reheat with little to no oil so you can enjoy your favorite fried foods with less guilt.

Keurig K-Select Single-Serve Coffee Maker: $129.99 $69.99 at Best Buy
Save $60 -
Best Buy has the best-selling Keurig K-Select on sale for just $69.99 right now. A great gift idea, the coffee maker can brew a cup in minutes and comes in several different color choices.

Black Friday vacuum deals

Whether you're looking for the latest and greatest Dyson, a cheap Hoover, or a popular robot vacuum, Black Friday deals always include great offers on a wide range of vacuums from all the top brands. Robot vacuums were the star of last year's sale, and we're hoping that the Black Friday 2021 sale will continue that as well as record-low prices on Dyson's best-selling stick vacuums.

Hoover WindTunnel XL Bagless Pet Vacuum: $149 $69 at Walmart
A cheap price for a vacuum that's apparently designed to deal with pet hair around the home. The dirt cup included can hold up to 1.5 liters, which should leave you with plenty of capacity for cleaning before you need to empty it out. You're also granted up to 12 feet of extendable cleaning reach with attachments, according to the manufacturer.

Dyson Cyclone V10 Motorhead: $499.99 $427.99 at Amazon
Save over $70
on this cordless stick vacuum cleaner from Dyson. It comes with up to 60 minutes run time, a direct drive motorhead for powerful cleaning, and a fully sealed filtration system traps 99.97 percent of particles as small as 0.3 microns
