Is it too early to talk about Black Friday deals? No way! The end-of-year shopping season has well and truly begun.

Not only did Amazon's Prime Big Deal Days sale take place this week, but Walmart and Best Buy also launched huge deals events. The good news is that all three sales included some genuinely impressive offers… and the better news is that some of those deals are still available today. 

And this is only the start – things will get steadily busier from here on in as retailers launch more sales ahead of the big day. Worried you'll miss a great deal? We've got you. The TechRadar team has covered these events for years now, so you can trust us to tell what's worth buying and which products should be on your shopping lists. 

Each week, I'll be picking out the best deals we recommend you buy, and you can also bookmark our main Black Friday deals hub for all the latest news and offers.

Here's what's stood out this week:

No: but it's damn close as they only hit $269 once in December 2022. But, honestly, the Bose 700 are becoming harder to get hold of, and deals are as rare as pirate sea glass, so this is one to snap up now if you want some premium headphones at a great price.
