Black Friday is a week away, which means that the holiday shopping season is about to kick into overdrive. If you're a retailer, you can hardly wait, since this is easily your most important time of year. If you're a gadget-lover, or even a shopper looking for a great deal, this is definitely the best time of year.
Here are a few of the very best tech gadgets that will be on sale this Black Friday (and a few that are already on sale today) everywhere from Best Buy, to Amazon, to Target, and Walmart :
Beats Solo3 Wireless Headphones - $129 (Target)
If you need a quality pair of wireless headphones with solid battery life, the Beats Solo3 are a great choice. There are certainly headphones that sound better, and you can similarly-priced models with noise-cancellation, but at $170 off at Target, you won't find a better deal.
XBox One Star Wars Bundle - $350 (Best Buy)
There's a similar deal at Target, but this one's better. Save $150 off this deal which includes the full-game download of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order Deluxe Edition, a month of EA access, the Xbox One X 1TB console, and an Xbox wireless controller, along with a month of Xbox Live Gold.
Apple Watch Series 3 - $129 (Walmart)
Apple kept the Series 3 around as a lower-cost option, and it's a steal this Black Friday for $70 off at Walmart. You can actually get the deal as early as Wednesday at 10 p.m. EST online, and on Thanksgiving day in-store. This one doesn't include the EKG feature, or the always-on display, but aside from also being a little smaller overall, it's a great deal on the most popular smartwatch you can get.
iPhone 11 - Free (when you buy an iPhone 11 Pro from Verizon)
If you're looking for a great deal on the latest iPhone models, Verizon is offering a buy one/get one style deal that includes a free iPhone 11 when you buy an iPhone 11 Pro or Pro Max. If you don't need two new phones, Best Buy is offering up to $500 off the iPhone 11 Pro with activation and a trade-in.
Samsung 70" Class 4K Smart TV - $1,499 (Best Buy)
Saving $500 on a flagship 4K Smart TV is a pretty good deal. Of course, if you don't need something quite that large, Best Buy has a slew of Samsung LED TVs on sale for Black Friday.
Target also has a Samsung 65" Smart 4K UHD HDR TV for $300 off, making it a sweet $599 deal starting on Thanksgiving day.
Amazon Echo Dot - $22 (Amazon)
If you're ready to take the smart speaker plunge, you can save $27.99 on the Amazon Echo Dot, or get a set of three for $64.97. The Dot isn't the world's most amazing-sounding speaker, but Amazon's most recent version is a marked improvement in that area. You can also save $25 off the Echo Dot with Clock if you'd rather not have to always ask for the time.
10.2" iPad - $249.99 (Target & Walmart)
Apple's base model of its iconic tablet is $80 off for Black Friday. Running iPadOS and now compatible with the Smart Folio Keyboard, the 10.2" iPad is not only a great tablet, it's a great deal at both Target and Walmart.
Microsoft Surface Pro 7 - $599 (Best Buy)
You can get Microsoft's newest Surface Pro for $360 off, or get a bundle that includes the Type Cover and pen and save $429.99. That's a pretty good deal especially if you're looking at getting Microsoft's 2-in-1 device for a graduating student, or just for your own personal computing needs.
iTunes & App Store Gift Cards - Save 20% (Amazon)
In addition to offering a ton of deals, especially on Amazon products, one of the best deals you can get on the site for Black Friday is a 20 percent discount on gift cards at many of the places you love to shop. That includes Apple iTunes and App Store, as well as popular restaurants like Applebees.
