Now that Black Friday is only a week away, this year’s holiday shopping event is shaping up to be quite the event. Getting back to normal after a few years of stockouts and the like, the deals are better than ever this Thanksgiving week, and we’re continuing our annual tradition of naming the top 10 Black Friday deals headed our way in the coming days.
10) A rare Sonos discount is expected ahead of Black Friday
After price hikes throughout the pandemic, price cuts on Sonos speakers and soundbars have been necessary to bring home a premium, yet oh-so-popular sound offering. Throughout 2022, we’ve barely seen any discounts go live, which is about to change as Black Friday will take 20% off the brand’s entire stable. With the best price cuts of the year, you’ll be able to save on the company’s flagship smart soundbars, wireless subwoofers, satellite speakers and much more for the first time all year.
9) Score almost all-time low prices on the latest Samsung
Samsung’s latest handsets have been on sale quite a few times this year, but now we should be seeing new all-time low discounts land for Black Friday. Some of the savings are already underway, giving holiday shoppers a good idea of what’s to come next week.
8) Save $499 on Apple’s latest 16-inch M1 Pro MacBook Pro
As many await Apple’s release of a new M2 version, this Black Friday season will see the best options to bring home the current generation 16-inch M1 Pro MacBook Pro. With the new all-time low price, you can already save $499 on the high-end MacBook, which still delivers the most capable features of any notebook in the macOS lineup right now. Starting at $2,000, this won’t last all of this holiday shopping season, but it does provide a perfect opportunity to upgrade your professional workstation.
7) Black Friday is the best time to buy a TV
Year after year, Black Friday remains the best time to pick up a new TV, and 2022 continues that tradition. With deep discounts on TVs of all sizes, from a few smaller units to massive 85-inch screens, you’ll be able to upgrade your home theater at the best prices yet on new 2022 models and so much more. Not to mention, there will be units for every ecosystem, including Roku, Fire TV, Google TV, and even AirPlay 2.
6) SANDMARC Black Friday Sale Discounted Iconic iPhone 14 Cases
While there will be plenty of discounts on iPhone accessories going on next week for Black Friday, one of the best brands (and a favorite right now at 9to5 Toys) is SANDMARC. Not quite as well-known as some of the other brands out there, the company specializes in some unique ways to protect your Apple handset or fill it with some photo-enhancing upgrades. Rarely on sale, the company’s entire collection of covers and accessories will be marked down by 20% during the holiday shopping season through the end of the month.
5) New Amazon Echo Dot 5th Gen speakers for sale
After starting shipping last month, Amazon’s latest additions to the Alexa stable arrive as the new 5th Gen Echo Dots. The new versions are available in three different form factors and are now on sale for the first time starting at $25. These are already available at advertised Black Friday prices, saving up to 50% on the upgraded speakers that rock the upgraded internal audio array.
4) M2 iPad Pros hit the best price yet
As far as Apple’s latest iPadOS experience goes, the new M2 iPad Pros will be getting some of the best Black Friday deals this year. Joining the rest of the tablets that will all be marked down to their best prices yet, the 11-inch iPad Pro should drop to $729 or less for an all-time low for a recent debut. The larger 12.9-inch model, which is already on sale, will put the pace into Black Friday with a significant discount of $100.
3) Apple Watch Series 8
There’s no better time to lock in a new outfit than before the new year, and the savings on the Apple Watch Series 8 make it even more appealing. Returning to an all-time low for a second time, prices now start at $349 for Apple’s latest fitness tracker. We haven’t seen so many opportunities to save since the launch in September, and now the $50 off is coming to make this one of the best Black Friday deals of the year.
2) Pixel 7/Pro
The latest from Google is also getting in on the Black Friday savings, with new all-time lows hitting to make the Pixel 7 and 7 Pro the best deals of the event. Starting at $499 for the Pixel 7 and then rising to $749 for its more flagship counterpart, both of these unlocked Android smartphones have only gone on sale a very limited number of times before and are now coming with significant discounts of $100 or more for the holiday shopping season.
1) AirPods Pro 2
Checking in as our most anticipated discount of the Black Friday shopping season, the best price yet on Apple’s new AirPods Pro 2 should land sometime next week. Whether it arrives just after Thanksgiving or sometime earlier this week remains to be seen, but the latest pair of flagship headphones should drop even further than their current retail price to an all-time low. We’re expecting to see the new ANC buds land around $220, if not even lower. And for those who don’t need the latest and greatest, the original AirPods Pro at $159 are an even better value.
