Best early Black Friday deals in the US
Nintendo Switch (Neon) + Mario Kart 8 Deluxe + 3 Months Switch Online: $299.99 at Amazon
A very familiar Nintendo Switch bundle is back again for this year's Black Friday. It includes the Switch console, a digital copy of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, and a 3-month Switch Online membership. This represents a saving of around $70 compared to buying all three separately so it's excellent value for money if you are looking to buy the popular Nintendo console for the holidays.
Samsung Galaxy S23 FE: $100 gift card and Xbox Game Pass at Best Buy
Best Buy has a great bundle offer right now on the Galaxy S23 FE if you want to buy a device outright. A $100 Best Buy gift card is included with all unlocked devices, which could be handy for upcoming sales (hint: Black Friday), as well as one month of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate. Overall, it's perhaps not the strongest set of freebies available, but decent considering you don't need a plan or trade-in to get them.
GoPro Hero 9 Black 5K: was
$249.99 now $199.99 at Best Buy
Shoot stunning video with up to 5K resolution with the GoPro Hero 9 Black, which is on sale at Best Buy for the lowest price ever of $199.99. The waterproof action camera features HyperSmooth stabilization technology that offers three levels of stabilization for smooth video reproduction and the SuperPhoto feature will automatically pick the best image processing for you.
DreamCloud Luxury Hybrid mattress: was
$839 now from $419 at DreamCloud
DreamCloud is currently offering a flash sale with 50% off sitewide, taking the price of a queen down to $665 – which is the cheapest price I've ever seen. In our DreamCloud mattress review, we found this mattress does a superb job of regulating temperature thanks to gel-infused memory foam, an innerspring layer that allows for movement of air, and a quilted foam and cashmere top layer that's designed to wick away moisture. You get a whole year's sleep trial to decide whether you like it, and there's a forever warranty, too.
LG C2 65-Inch 4K OLEDTV: was
$2,099.99 now $1,399 at Walmart
The LG C2 OLED is our best-rated TV, and Walmart has the 65-inch model on sale for $1,399. That's the lowest price you can find and one of the best Black Friday TV deals we've spotted so far. The stunning display is praised for its intense brightness and vivid colors in our LG C2 OLED review. The 65-inch TV also packs an a9 Gen5 AI Processor, Dolby Atmos, and voice control - all for under $1,500, which is an incredible value for this highly-rated OLED TV.
Price check: Amazon: $1,546 Best Buy: $1,699.99
Apple Watch SE (44mm, GPS): was
$309 now $149 at Walmart
One of the best deals at Walmart ahead of Black Friday is the best-selling Apple Watch SE reduced to $149 – that's the cheapest Apple Watch you can find today. The first-generation Apple Watch SE is an excellent choice for someone who wants essential functions such as activity tracking, calorie counting, and sleep tracking, plus the ability to see notifications, take calls, and reply to texts directly from your wrist. This one is going in and out of stock regularly, so best to move quickly to avoid missing out.
Bissell Little Green Portable Carpet Cleaner: was
$123.34 now $89 at Walmart
Bissell carpet cleaners have become all the rage lately, and Walmart still has the top-rated Little Green on sale for $89 – the lowest price we've ever seen. Perfect for pet owners and parents, the portable carpet cleaner can magically erase spills and stains on carpets, couches, auto interiors, and more.
Apple iPad 10.2 2021 (64GB): was
$329 now $249 at Amazon
If you're looking for a cheap iPad ahead of Black Friday, Amazon has the 10.2-inch iPad on sale for a record-low price of $249. While it's not the speediest tablet in the range, a decent screen, quality design, and relatively speedy chip make this the iPad that suits most people's needs the best. For streaming, shopping, and doing a few light work tasks, it's a great choice, especially with today's $80 discount.
Hisense 75-Inch U6 Series 4K TV: was
$1,199.99 now $698 at Amazon
If you're looking for a big-screen budget display, you can't get much better than this massive 75-inch Hisense 4K TV on sale for $698 - that's even cheaper than Prime Day. In our Hisense U6 Series review, we praised it for its excellent picture quality at an affordable price. You're getting support for both Dolby Vision and HDR10+, plus the Google Assistant, hands-free voice control, and Game Mode Plus.
Dell XPS 13: was
$799 now $599 at Dell
This offer of the Dell XPS 13 is still available after launching over a month ago and it's still our pick for the best laptop deal available right now. Sure, this isn't the most powerful configuration with its Intel i5 processor, 8GB of RAM and 256GB SSD, but that's enough for your everyday computing needs and light work. Plus, it's a superb price for one of the latest models of the premium machine. The main selling points for the XPS 13 are the slick aluminum chassis, vibrant display, and lightweight design for easy portability. We awarded this model four stars out of five with our Dell XPS 13 2022 review.
Apple iPhone 14 Plus: get four devices with an unlimited data plan for $120 per month
Verizon's latest promotion offers four iPhone 14 Plus handsets for just $40 each - and that's with a line on an unlimited data plan. Yes, the bundled plan is the carrier's more basic 'Unlimited Welcome' tier but this is still an amazing offer. Previously, an iPhone 14 Plus bundled with a single line would have cost close to $100 by itself so you get some incredible savings here.

This includes voice controls for lights and thermostats, a speaker to answer your questions or check the weather, a USB port to charge your phone, and more. It can also connect to external devices such as speakers so you can control the music that's played or a Ring Doorbell so you can add more chimes throughout the home. An early Black Friday bargain.

Shark Stratos Cordless Stick Vacuum Cleaner: was
£399.99 now £249.99 at Amazon
Here's a new record-low price for the appliance we awarded 4.5 stars out of five in our Shark Stratos Cordless Stick Vacuum Cleaner review. I own a similar but slightly older Shark IZ300UK vacuum cleaner and the Anti Hair Wrap tech has saved me countless hours unclogging the brush roll compared to my old vacuum. An absolute lifesaver. It's also a good option for reaching under furniture thanks to its Flexology tech. Pick one up so you can benefit from all the perks I've been loving for the last couple of years.
Samsung Galaxy Buds Live: was
£139 now £59 at Amazon
The Samsung Galaxy Buds Live are back down to a record-low price at Amazon ahead of Black Friday. These affordable buds feature active noise cancellation, effortless pairing with your devices and great sound quality for the price. They're a solid alternative to the pricey AirPods if you just want some simple and effective buds and don't mind the in-ear bean-shaped design.
Oral-B Pro 3: was
£100 now £45 at Amazon
This mid-range electric toothbrush is a solid pickup while it's less than half price at Amazon. This brush doesn't boast many advanced high-end features but it does have the basic ones you really need to brush your teeth effectively and efficiently, including a two-minute timer and a visible pressure sensor. One toothbrush head and a tube of toothpaste are also included.
Samsung 65-inch S90C Smart UHD 4K OLED TV: was
£2,899 now £1,699.99 at Currys
The S90C OLED is the slightly more budget-friendly cousin to the S95C, and now it's £1,100 off at Currys ahead of Black Friday. Plus, when you use the code VISION100OFF at the checkout, you get an extra £100 discount to drops it to the lowest price yet. Don't be mistaken in thinking this is the inferior set, however, as it's our top pick for this year's best TV in the TechRadar Choice Awards. Our Samsung S90C review awarded it five stars out of five, praising its gorgeous picture and gaming features. It's not as bright as the 95C, and its sound is also a little weaker, but it's a fantastic choice in its own right that you would be happy to have in your living room for all your TV needs.
Hive Mini Thermostat + Reciever: was
£79 now £49 at Currys
This Hive Mini Thermostat is a cheap and easy way to smarten up your heating and hot water setup following a £20 saving at Currys. You can use the app on your mobile phone – as well as voice commands through Alexa, Siri or Google Assistant – to control the heating throughout the home. Schedules, zones and the option to boost heat when you really need it all help with efficiency and energy-saving in the long run, too.

£79.99 now £49.99 at Currys
With the long and cold winter nights coming in, there's little else better than having a hearty stew, curry or your favourite meal of choice bubbling away all day and then ready to warm your bones in the evening. This slow cooker from Crock-Pot is down to a reasonable £50 at Currys in their Green Friday sale, which also gets plaudits for its energy-saving features, non-stick and dishwasher-safe pot, and decent 4.7L capacity.
