This year’s Black Friday Sonos deals have officially finished. Black Friday 2022 doesn't start until November 25, but there are still plenty of discounts to be found now. We’ve got today’s lowest prices here, and we’re expecting more offers in the Boxing Day sales (or after Christmas sales if you’re in the US).Stay tuned for our pro predictions for the best Black Friday xxxx deals in 2022 - they'll be coming in the new year. In the meantime, here's a recap of what happened this year...

If you're looking for Black Friday Sonos deals, we're here to help. Sonos makes some of the best wireless speakers and soundbars in the world, but the brand's quality products usually come at a high cost. 

We paid close attention to Sonos deals as the Black Friday sales event happened, bringing you the best discounts we could find on the Sonos Move, Sonos Beam (Gen 2), Sonos Sub and more across the US and UK.

We were hoping to see some quality deals on Sonos speakers this year, because global chip shortages have been hitting the AV industry hard, affecting both stock and delivery times. 

Sadly, Sonos deals were few and far between, with the company even increasing the prices of most of its devices recently and making key references on its site to the stock shortages and long shipping times. We saw very little that could count as a strong Black Friday Sonos deal due to these price increases, with most deals actually making Sonos speakers more expensive than they were last year.

We're keeping our peepers peeled for anything that could count as a strong deal - or even any kind of discount really. Below you'll find the best we uncovered, as well as the top deals today.

Today's best Sonos deals

There aren't many Sonos deals available right now - but here's a selection of the best prices we've found for Sonos speakers and soundbars, no matter where you are in the world.

Last year's best Sonos Black Friday deals

Last year's deals have come and gone, but that doesn't mean they aren't worth paying attention to. That's because they can give you a hint at what 2022's Black Friday and Cyber Monday Sonos offers might look like and clue you in as to whether any offers you see before Cyber Monday are worth jumping on.

We have deals for both the US and UK, so check them out to get a feel for the Sonos speaker discounts that were available in your region last Black Friday.

Save £20 –
This fantastic little speaker is getting a tasty little discount for Black Friday. You can save over 10%, making it that much easier to enjoy the on-the-go sound of this portable Bluetooth speaker. Smart assistant support for Alexa and Google Assistant doesn't hurt, and neither does its ability to connect to Wi-Fi and work with other Sonos speakers.

Sonos Portable Set with Move + Roam: £578 £558 at Sonos
Save £20 –
Enjoy both power and portability with this two-item pack from Sonos. You can get both a powerful Sonos Move to really liven up backyard barbecues and outdoor gatherings as well as a Sonos Roam to easily take in your bag for hikes and picnics. With Bluetooth and Wi-Fi, they're both just as good at home as they are on the go.

Sonos Portable Set with Roam: £358 £318 at Sonos
Save £40 –
Why settle for one Sonos Roam when you can get two and double your savings. The this two-pack of Sonos Roam speakers will let you double up on your sound, as you can sync the speakers on Wi-Fi to play together around your home. It's not just twice as much volume either, as the two speakers can provide stereo separation, with one serving as a left channel and the other as right.

Sonos One (Gen 2): £199 £179 at Sevenoaks
Save £20 -
Sevenoaks currently has the Sonos One smart speaker with a £15 discount - but don't be fooled. The Sonos One used to cost £179 before a price increase brought it up to £199 - so, you're actually paying more than usual. Still, if you want an excellent wireless speaker with unbeatable connectivity, this is the cheapest you'll find it at the moment. 

Sonos One SL: £179 £169 at Amazon
Save £10 -
Want the sound of a Sonos One without Alexa built-in? The SL version is for you. This is nowhere near the lowest price we've seen, but it's the best deal available today. 

Sonos Arc: £899 £879 at Sevenoaks
Save £20 -
The best Sonos soundbar you can buy is the Sonos Arc, and you can save £20 on the Dolby Atmos wonder at Sevenoaks for Black Friday. Again, this deal is a  little deceptive as Sonos recently increased its prices, but this is the cheapest you'll find it at the moment.

Sonos Sub Wireless Subwoofer: £749 £729 at Sonos
Save £20 - This Sonos Sub deal shaves £20 off the walloping subwoofer. At 32.4lbs it's a serious step up from the small speakers you might be used to, and when paired up with a Sonos soundbar can really add some oomph to the low-end. Again, the Sonos Sub used to cost £600, so this is a substantial price increase, but the lowest price available now.

Black Friday Sonos deals: what to look for

Black Friday Sonos deals tend to include most of the company's lineup of speakers, soundbars, subwoofers, and amplifiers, so it's worth keeping an eye out for the best discounts across the entire range.

This year, we'd specifically recommend looking out for deals on the first-gen Sonos Beam, as it has recently been usurped by a newer model. The Sonos One is also likely to be discounted, as it was released way back in 2017 - and could be due an upgrade in the near future.

Whatever Sonos speaker you go for, don't be fooled by the company's recent price increases, which span most of its products. A $100 /  £100 discount on the Sonos Arc may seem like a bargain, but this would only bring the soundbar down to its original RRP. You can find the full list of Sonos price increases here for more information.

When did the best Black Friday Sonos deals start?

Well... we're sort of still waiting, even though Black Friday as passed and we're heading into Cyber Monday. We're hoping more Sonos deals will roll in throughout the day, so it's worth bookmarking this page and checking back, though things are picking up in the UK as Black Friday draws to a close.

It's also possible that Sonos deals will carry on until the first week of December, which is what we saw during Black Friday last year. 

The reason for the longer discount holiday in 2020 was due to Covid-19 pandemic restrictions, so shoppers (and retailers) had longer to take advantage of the offers and get the products shipped.

While restrictions are being lifted in many parts of the world, some are still in place so we could see this year's Black Friday deals last for as long as before. According to data from Adobe Analytics, the pandemic also meant that online shopping reached its highest ever seasonal totals in 2020, so businesses might have both safety and financial reasons to keep many of last year's practices.

Regardless, if you're after a great Sonos deal during Black Friday or Cyber Monday, make sure to start looking now and continue your search into early December to be sure you snag the best discounts you can. Alternatively, bookmark this page and we'll do the looking for you.

Tips for buying a Sonos speaker this Black Friday

Sonos produces many different speakers and sound systems, so picking the best one can be tough. To help you figure out which Black Friday or Cyber Monday deal will be best for you we're here to explain which speakers from Sonos will be best for your needs.

If you're after the best speaker around, check out the Sonos One. Not only is it at the top of our best wireless speakers guide, but it's also the best smart speaker around, too. The soundstage it produces is splendid and with Google and Amazon Alexa assistant support you'll be able to listen to your favorite tracks just by asking the Sonos One to play them.

For those that aren't on a tight budget, the Sonos Play: 5 is a powerful speaker that's sure to fill your home with great-sounding tunes from your favorite streaming services. During the sales period you're sure to find even a slight discount on this speaker, which could make it an exceptionally tempting offer.

However, if you value portability you'll want to find the best Sonos Move and Sonos Roam deals. Not only are these Bluetooth speakers great for setting up on-the-go party tunes, but the great sound quality and full support of the Sonos app makes this a brilliant speaker to have in your home too.

Looking for a soundbar this Black Friday? The Sonos Arc is a brilliant soundbar that's sure to make your home cinema experience even more spectacular. It's the best soundbar for good reason, providing excellent audio quality thanks to Dolby’s latest TrueHD and Dolby Digital Plus sound codecs. Setting up the Arc is super simple too, though it can be pricey when it isn't on sale.

If you're after something a little cheaper and smaller, the Sonos Beam (Gen 2) is a great choice, coming with virtual Dolby Atmos and HDMI eARC compatibility. Its compact size makes it ideal for smaller spaces, and you can easily hook it up to a Sonos Sub or a pair of Sonos One SL rear speakers to boost the sound. It's worth keeping an eye out for deals on the original Sonos Beam, too - though it's now been discontinued, you may find some retailers trying to shift leftover stock this Black Friday.
