The top Black Friday deals on TVs, home appliances and laptops at Best Buy
If you’re interested in electronics, you won’t want to miss our roundup of Best Buy Black Friday deals. While it may seem too early to shop Black Friday deals (this year, the big sales event falls on Nov. 24), Best Buy has already started slashing prices on big-ticket items, such as TVs, headphones, speakers, laptops and tablets, including an LG 86-Inch Class UQ75 Series 4K UHD Smart TV and a Whirlpool 3.8-Cubic-Foot High-Efficiency Top-Load Washer.
BestReviews has reviewed and tested many products, so you’ll want to stay up to date with the hottest deals by checking our page regularly for updates.
Smaller TVs are always cheaper than big-screen TVs, but you can get one on Black Friday at a nice discount. The best brands to shop include Samsung, LG, TCL, Sharp and Toshiba, but you’ll also want to focus on picture quality, processing power and smart features.
Those looking for a big-screen TV to watch 4K movies and sports will not want to miss out on this 86-inch smart TV. It has a 120-hertz refresh rate for a smooth viewing or gaming experience and HDR 10 technology for superior contrast and picture quality. Plus, you’ll get access to hundreds of streaming apps and LG channels.
TCL isn’t one of the brands you might think of when discussing smart TVs, but we must mention this 65-inch TV as a top bargain pick. It boasts QLED technology for lifelike visuals, rich colors and several image-enhancement technologies, including Dolby Vision IQ, HDR10+, HDR10 and HLG.
Home appliance deals
Home appliances are expensive, so you’ll want to scout the Best Buy Black Friday deals to save money. You can find several kitchen appliances, such as blenders, microwaves and espresso machines, and major appliances, such as refrigerators and washing machines.
We tested this model and found it to be one of the most versatile air fryers currently on the market. In addition to being a first-rate air fryer, it can also toast, bake, dehydrate and more. Large enough to fit a 14-pound turkey, the Pro also cooked faster than the Breville Smart Oven Air Fryer, which we also tested, and it provided delicious, evenly cooked results.
We recommend getting a high-efficiency washing machine like this one to prevent high electric bills. This washer has a feature that automatically senses how much water is needed for a load and a quick-wash cycle that washes a small, lightly soiled load in just 30 minutes.
This refrigerator has a 27-cubic-foot capacity and a modern design, making it suitable for large kitchens. The SmartThings app monitors energy usage and provides tips on making it run more efficiently, and the dual auto ice maker provides crushed or cubed ice.
Back-to-school sales are always the best time to shop for laptops, but you may be surprised to see some excellent computer deals during the Best Buy Black Friday sale. We’re already seeing price cuts on high-end laptops as well as solid Chromebook deals.
If you want a minimalist laptop, a Chromebook might be what you’re looking for. This Chromebook has a bright 15.6-inch HD display, and the Intel UHD graphics means you can play 4K games without an additional graphics card. Overall, it’s a good budget-friendly model for those who want a laptop for basic streaming and simple tasks.
This Dell laptop is excellent for those needing a high-powered gaming or video-editing laptop. The large 16-inch OLED screen is perfect for streaming 4K movies, and the touch function lets you navigate more easily. It has 16GB of RAM for efficient multitasking and 1TB of local storage.
When do Best Buy Black Friday deals start?
While the official Black Friday date this year is Nov. 24, the deals at Best Buy are already beginning to appear on their website. That means you’ll have more time to shop for the hottest electronics and might even catch some of the best deals early. On Black Friday, doors will open at 5 a.m., so be sure to mark Nov. 24 on your calendar if you want to get the best in-store deals.
We recommend signing up for Best Buy’s newsletter to ensure you don’t miss anything. Plus, you’ll be alerted of any promotions, new products and events leading up to Black Friday.
Are Best Buy deals better on Black Friday or Cyber Monday?
Tech and electronics deals are slightly better on Cyber Monday. However, because Best Buy mainly sells tech products, there isn’t much difference between Black Friday or Cyber Monday deals. There’s no telling which day will have better discounts, but previous years have offered better online deals on Cyber Monday, which may prove true again this year.
A general rule of thumb to maximize savings is to shop for expensive items on Black Friday and smaller tech and gadgets on Cyber Monday. For example, you might see the greatest Best Buy deals for refrigerators, drones and washers on Black Friday, while headphones and video games might be worth waiting for Cyber Monday. However, we recommend shopping on both days, and if you find a good deal on Black Friday, it’s best to jump on it rather than waiting to see if Cyber Monday will feature a better discount on the same item.
