As you may have heard—as you perchance gathered from your neighborhood carrier pigeon or nearest grapevine—there is a rather large sales event coming up. It is, by all accounts, the sales event of the year. Neither pandemic nor democracy-spurning administration nor, hell, year-long national bad mood can derail Black Friday and its younger, savvier successor, Cyber Monday. There are deals to be had and sales to be scooped. Even this early in the game, with Thanksgiving still days away.
Before you duck out for an extended weekend of eating too much food, watching too many movies, and plastering on a smiling face for Zoom Thanksgiving with the nonlocal family (the horror), we suggest scoping out the early deals on tech and electronics, since this stuff tends to go fast. Real fast. In years prior (remember those?), so fast it caused brawls in Best Buy parking lots and Walmart doorbuster lines. This year, all you have to do is take on the entirety of the internet. Easy!
To give you a fighting chance, we’ve rounded up some sales that are already happening on cool stuff that requires a charger or a set of batteries. You know: headphones, laptops, TVs, gaming consoles, smart-everythings. You likely won’t find them cheaper than during the armpit-sweat-inducing mania of Black Friday and Cyber Monday. And nothing hits quite like the adrenaline rush of buying shit you technically don’t need but very much want. Have at it.
If you want it, Amazon’s got it. That’s the way it goes with the world-dominating online retail monster. So, look for what you want among the early Black Friday deals already live on the site. They extend from Apple smart tech to Echo home devices to Instant Pot cookers and beyond:
Nordstrom? For tech? In this economy? Yeah, Nordstrom actually does curate a good collection of electronic stuff. The retailer has already rolled out some online deals. Those include:
Is it really Black Friday if your mom doesn’t ask you to line up in the Walmart parking lot at 4 a.m., ready to fight by her side? Who’s to say. But, in lieu of that madness, Walmart gave a bit of a preview of what’s likely to become a big ol’ pile of electronics deals come next week. The sales live right now on the site include:
- Up to $750 back on smartphone purchases
- Deals on laptops from brands like Acer, Lenovo, and Samsung
- Deals on smart home tech from Google, Roku, and more
- Deals on 4K TVs from Samsung, Sceptre, Vizio, and more
All the Rest
