With Black Friday right around the corner, shoppers are starting to devise their strategies for finding the best deals on one of the year's most important shopping holidays. Best Buy, like its competitors, is hoping to capitalize on that.
The brick-and-mortar tech retailer released its Black Friday ad, complete with deals on everything from smart home devices to the iPhone 11 Pro. The deals offer solid discounts on a variety of highly sought-after gadgets and electronics, and best of all, some of them are already available.
But given the sheer number of deals Best Buy is offering, some may find it hard to sift through and find the real ones for them. So, to help those folks out a bit, I've compiled five outstanding Best Buy tech deals I believe are truly worth your time.
From a huge savings on the iPhone to a surprising deal on the Nintendo Switch, the following offers might be worth considering this Black Friday:
LG's Gorgeous OLED TV
LG makes some of the more impressive televisions on the market, thanks in no small part to the gorgeous organic light-emitting diode (OLED) technology it relies on to drive picture quality.
This Black Friday, Best Buy is offering a $300 discount on the popular LG OLED 65B9PUA 65-inch OLED television. That means you'll be able to get it for $2,000 instead of its regular $2,300 price.
If you pick it up, expect to find a television with outstanding visuals, plenty of smarts, so you can watch Netflix, Hulu or other services, and an exceedingly thin design.
Big iPhone 11 Savings
If you want to get your hands on Apple's new iPhone 11, you can take advantage of a $500 offer at Best Buy on Black Friday.
To get up to $500 off an iPhone 11 Pro, you'll need to activate a new line on Verizon, AT&T, or Sprint's network and trade in an old smartphone. The amount of your savings will vary depending on the trade-in you bring to Best Buy, but if you bring in an iPhone X or newer, you can expect to get at least $350 from Best Buy.

Get a New iMac
Another great Apple offer, Best Buy is delivering a solid discount on the 27-inch iMac this Black Friday.
This is the 27-inch iMac featuring a Retina 5K display, and it's on sale for $1,600--a $200 savings off its regular retail price of $1,800.
In addition to a compelling all-in-one design, the machine runs on Intel's Core i5 processor, has 8GB of memory, and 1TB of storage. In other words, it's powerful enough for most users, and that discount makes it even more appealing.
Oh, and if you get that iPhone 11 or iMac, you're also elligible for a free year of Apple TV+.
A Compelling Nintendo Switch Offer
It's not often you can find a good deal on the popular Nintendo Switch console, but Best Buy is offering one on Black Friday.
For $300 on Black Friday, you'll be able to buy a Nintendo Switch bundle that includes the Neon Blue and Neon Red Joy-Con controllers and a Mario Kart 8 Deluxe game download. Considering Mario Kart 8 Deluxe usually retails for $60, it's a nice savings. Better yet, it's a game anyone who plays Nintendo Switch will like, thanks to great characters, fun tracks, and solid gameplay.
Ring's Video Doorbell 2, Anyone?
If you have designs on building a smart home, you should consider taking advantage of Best Buy's deal on the Ring Video Doorbell 2.
On Black Friday, you'll be able to pick up the Ring Video Doorbell 2 for $140--a $60 savings off its regular retail price of $200.
Ring's Video Doorbell 2 has a satin nickel finish and offers 1080p wide-angle video, so you can see what's happening around your home in full HD. Add that to motion sensing and infrared support and it's a doorbell worth considering for any smart home.
