We're here to keep you updated with all the Sonos Black Friday deals you can expect in 2023. Although Black Friday itself is on November 24 2023, it has become a weeks-long event, with some sales starting as early as October. This year, it'll all kick off with Amazon's Prime Big Deals Day on October 10-11.
So, with Black Friday deals likely fast approaching, and discounts that will last into December, we can expect to see Sonos Black Friday deals on a wide range of products, including some of the best wireless speakers and best soundbars available today.
We've been keeping an eye on Sonos prices throughout the year so when the deals start, we'll be able to tell you which are really worthwhile. Knowing Sonos, Black Friday 2023 is likely going to be the best time of year you can get your hands on a bargain. Last year's holiday season brought in over $211 billion in revenue (according to data from Adobe), and it's likely brands such as Sonos will be looking to beat those figures by offering new and, hopefully, even better bargains.
We've included some of last year's best Sonos deals so you can get an idea of what we can expect for this year's Sonos Black Friday deals. We'll be sure to bring you the best deals as they appear.

Black Friday Sonos deals: FAQs
When will the best Black Friday Sonos deals start in 2023?
Black Friday may not officially start until 24th November 2023, but retailers will be offering discounts way before then, most likely starting as early as October with Amazon's second Prime Day deals event on October 10 - 11.
According to Adobe, the largest average electronics discounts were over Black Friday itself at the end of November, then reaching the same average levels in mid-to-late December.
Now, Sonos may not follow the averages. The company tends to coordinate its sales with retailers, so if it goes for early deals, those may be as good as they get. But we won't have that full picture until after – based on previous experience, we would expect the biggest prices to come on Black Friday itself, but it's not guaranteed.
Where will the best Sonos Black Friday deals 2023 be?
We’ll be tracking the very best Sonos Black Friday 2023 discounts here as soon as they drop. But if last year's discounts are anything to go by there are several retailers that tend to offer the best Sonos Black Friday deals.
Amazon and Crutchfield are likely to offer the best retailer discounts in the US, while UK prices strong favored Amazon, though places like John Lewis will price match. However, in both the US and UK, Sonos itself offered some of the biggest price cuts, which is rare in the electronics world.
What Black Friday Sonos deals do we expect to see in 2023?
With the release of the Sonos Era 100 & Sonos Era 300 this year, it's likely we'll see discounts on these new wireless speakers this year. Priced at $249 and $449 respectively, we could possibly see a discount of 10-20% happening if discounts on the Sonos One could be anything to go by.
The Sonos Arc, one of the best soundbars available, retails for $899 on average and in previous years, we've seen as big as $200 discount before and at one point dropping as low as £669 in the UK and with competition from Bose, Sony, Denon and more, hopefully we'll see an even bigger discount this year. Could we see it drop to $649/£649?
With the release of the Sonos Move 2 in September 2023, we'll most likely see a discount on the original Sonos Move, although just how big this discount will be from its $399 price remains to be seen, although we did see it drop to $319 last year, so we'd hope it goes even lower.
The Sonos Beam 2nd Gen has had some strong deals within the last year, so that could be ideal for mid-range buyers – we'd expect at least 20% off again. We'd also hope that the Sonos Ray will get 20% off or so, making it even more affordable.
The Sonos Roam is often one of the most popular Black Friday deals, being Sonos' most affordable speakers. We'd be surprised to massively deeper discounts than before, but we expect it to at least match them.
Finally, the really killer deals could be on the Sonos One. This is no longer being made, (the Era 100 has effectively replaced it) but there's plenty of stock around that still needs selling. If you already have a Sonos soundbar, or you want a great-value set of stereo speakers, a pair of Sonos One SL speakers on Black Friday could be fantastic buy.
Last year's best Sonos Black Friday deals
We've put the best Sonos deals that we found last year below to give you an idea of what deals we could see on Sonos products on Black Friday in 2023. Check them out so you can see what a great deal looks like in preparation for this year.
Last year's US deals
Sonos Roam SL Bluetooth speaker: was
$159 now $127 at Sonos
The Sonos Roam SL is the same portable Bluetooth and Wi-Fi enabled speaker as the Sonos Roam, but has no mics and thus no built-in voice assistant support, although it'll tag along if you've got voice control elsewhere in your Sonos setup. And we'd never seen it quite so affordable before – $32 wasn't a huge saving, but it was the best out there!
Sonos One smart speaker (gen 2): was
$219 now $175 at Crutchfield
This was a top deal on a Sonos staple. Looking to get into Sonos' wonderful world of multi-room audio? This is your gateway product, although it's a veritable sonic delight in its own right and with no other speakers to work with as well. We'd also never seen it drop to this price until now –$179, yes. $175? No. Bargain.
Sonos Arc Dolby Atmos soundbar: was
$799 now $719 at Crutchfield
This was an excellent deal, because it's $80 cheaper than we'd ever seen the Arc to date, and it's a sensational five-star soundbar with Dolby Atmos, TrueHD and Dolby Digital Plus. Setup is incredibly simple too. This is Sonos, remember, the firm that wrote the book on multi-room audio for your home.
Sonos Sub (Gen 3): was
$749 now $599 at Crutchfield
A smart design with a hole in the middle and push-push drivers either side delivers big bass that diffuses evenly and doesn't rattle the windows. This 20% discount was as cheap as we'd ever seen it. Yes, there's now a newer Sub Mini in Sonos land, but come on, where subwoofers are concerned, bigger is better…
Sonos Beam (Gen 2) soundbar: was
$449 now $359 at Amazon
The 2nd generation Sonos Beam hit its lowest-ever price with this excellent 20% discount. The compact and stylish soundbar features excellent integration with the wider Sonos ecosystem and immersive virtual Dolby Atmos support. Its size is great for TVs between 43 inches and 58 inches.
Sonos Move portable speaker: was
$399 now $319 at Crutchfield
You really had to move to get this discount. We saw it briefly drop to $299 before, but this was only $20 more and an excellent deal on one of Sonos' most popular speakers. You've got built-in Bluetooth for audio streaming from your smartphone or tablet, plus Apple AirPlay, IP56 dust- and water-resistance, four mics, AutoTrueplay (which means it'll adjust sonically to its surroundings) and two amps for each of the speakers; a woofer and a down-firing tweeter.
Last year's best UK deals
Sonos Arc soundbar: was
£899 now £669 at Amazon
This was a top deal. Why? Because it was over £100 cheaper than we'd ever seen it to date and it's a sensational five-star soundbar with Dolby Atmos, TrueHD and Dolby Digital Plus. Setup is incredibly simple too. This is Sonos, remember, the firm that wrote the book on multi-room audio for your home.
Sonos One smart speaker: was
£199 now £145 at Amazon
This was the cheapest price we'd seen for a Sonos staple. Looking to get into Sonos' wonderful world of multi-room audio? This is your gateway product, although it's a veritable sonic delight in its own right and with no other speakers to work with too.
Sonos Sub (Gen 3): was
£749 now £599 at Amazon
There's something about this design with the hole in the middle and those push-push drivers either side, isn't there? Also of serious note was the £150 saving, which was almost £100 cheaper than we'd ever seen it across the big online retailers. Yes, there's now a newer Sub Mini in Sonos land, but come on, where subwoofers are concerned, bigger is better…
Sonos Roam portable speaker: was
£179 now £124 at Amazon
When Sonos makes a truly portable speaker that not only plays nice with your multi-room audio setup but also brings Bluetooth the party, you know you're onto a winner. And although it might have seemed a little steep at its regular RRP, this money was far more palatable.
Sonos Beam (Gen 2) Dolby Atmos soundbar: was
£449 now £349 at Amazon
The second-generation Sonos Beam soundbar launched in October 2021 and while we have seen a few discounts to date, this was £50 cheaper than we've ever seen it. For your money you're getting a compact, stylish soundbar with excellent integration with the wider Sonos ecosystem, and immersive virtual Atmos support.
Sonos Move portable speaker: was
£399 now £319 at Sonos
OK, the deal was that you couldn't hang around on this one: November 28 was the day, for 24 sweet hours only. After that (or while stocks last) it was gone. You wanted a Sonos Move? Well you had to, um… move! We'd seen it briefly drop to £329 before, but this was £10 cheaper than even that, its lowest ever price, which is almost certainly why Sonos wasn't running it for long…
