This story is a part of Christmas Guide 2021, our list of ideas, by topic, by recipient and by price, to help you find the perfect gift.

If it feels like you’ve already been blown away by Black Friday for weeks, it’s because you have. Retailers have turned the one-day shopping event into a month-long shopping experience for better or worse. There have already been a few different waves of Black Friday deals, and although we have seen some great deals coming and going, there are still some left for those who have officially been waiting for Black Friday. It can be overwhelming to browse through all these sales, but this is where CNET comes in! We have investigated scans of newspaper ads, crawled reseller sites (Amazon, Goal, Walmart and Best buy, just to name a few) and found the deals you will not want to miss. You will even find great streaming deals, e.g. Hulu offers year-long subscriptions for 99 cents a month.

We have a section by section below to help you find what you’re looking for, but first here’s what you should know when preparing to start shopping:

  • Macy’s Black Friday sale started Tuesday.
  • Many Amazon device sales (Echo, Fire tablets, Fire TVs, Ring security systems) started last Friday.
  • Best Buy’s sale started last Friday, including the lowest price ever on the Apple Watch SE.
  • Target’s Black Friday sale started Sunday.
  • Staples’ Black Friday sale started Sunday.
  • Walmart’s Black Friday sale started Monday and includes possible access to PlayStation 5 and Xbox consoles for Walmart Plus members. The first availability of PS5 and Xbox consoles is already sold out.
  • More Amazon Black Friday sales start today.

Best Black Friday deal so far

Among the offers that jump out at us the most are a number of offers on AirPods – especially the new ones AirPods Pro with MagSafe charging case for $ 159 at Walmart. It’s $ 90 less than you pay in the Apple Store and the lowest price we’ve seen for them yet. Walmart is too lowers the price of the 2nd generation Google Nest Hub to just $ 50, which is another tempting offer.

Meanwhile, the TV deals are always unique Black Friday, and this year is no different. Our favorite deals so far can come from Amazon where you can find the 65-inch TCL 6 Series Roku TV for sale for $ 898 (save 602 kr.). It was already our top-recommended TV for the money, and now it’s down to the lowest price of the year.

Amazon also beats $ 50 off the price Bose Quiet Comfort 45 (QC45) Wireless Noise Canceling Headphones, brings the cost down to $ 279. These headphones come with a strong recommendation from CNET’s David Carnoy and would be a great gift (even if it’s a gift for yourself).

Another timeless gift candidate: a KitchenAid stand mixer. Target has some rather tempting offers, including a 5-quart model set down to $ 220, which saves you $ 210. Look for more color options for the same Black Friday price at Best Buy. And hey, speaking of Best Buy …

Best Best Buy Black Friday Deals

It’s a little late for the game, but Best Buy has finally revealed details of its sale taking place during the week of Black Friday. It’s not quite as cut and dried as some other retailers’ outlets, which have clear start and end dates, but in essence, Best Buy’s outlets have already started and will add more items in the coming days. There have already been a number of declines, including good deals like the first sale of the season on the Apple Watch SE.
