Black Friday is here and there are thousands of deals to be had this year, with huge savings on 4K Smart TVs, robot vacuums, fitness accessories and smart home devices. Brand name laptops, headphones and speakers are also expected to be on sale — many from brands that rarely offer discounts.
A survey from retail data and coupon site, RetailMeNot, found that 83% of shoppers plan to get an early start on their holiday shopping, with most saying they’ll get started before Thanksgiving, making Black Friday sales a perfect opportunity to finish off your holiday list.

Here’s what to know about the best Black Friday deals for 2021.
When is Black Friday This Year?
Black Friday takes place this year on Friday, November 26, 2021. Black Friday is always on the day after Thanksgiving, and has long been considered as the “kickoff” to the holiday shopping season.
While retailers used to only offer one-day deals on Black Friday, many sites have since extended their sales through Black Friday weekend, which is on November 26-28, 2021 this year.
The following Monday is known as “Cyber Monday,” which is also a day for big deals and promotional offers online. Cyber Monday this year is on November 29, 2021.
Black Friday weekend is typically the busiest shopping period of the year, and new data from Adobe’s 2021 Holiday Shopping Forecast predict online sales over those three days to top $36 billion.
What Are the Best Black Friday Deals 2021?
While Prime Day has become a huge shopping day on Amazon.com, Black Friday encompasses all retailers and online sites — not just Amazon. And while sites like Target, Walmart and Best Buy traditionally hold big Black Friday sales, a lot of independent retailers and smaller sites are launching Black Friday deals for 2021 too.
Buy: Fitbit Inspire 2 $59.95
According to RetailMeNot, shoppers should expect the best Black Friday deals of 2021 to include savings across tech, beauty and fashion. Black Friday is also your best chance to get savings on items that typically don’t go on sale: think expensive at-home fitness devices, digital cameras and drones.
Buy: Panasonic LUMIX FZ80 4K Digital Camera $297.99
Adobe’s report, meantime, predicts deals on furniture and bedding, tools, toys and home appliances. Cyber Monday, the report notes, will be the best day for television deals.
In addition to the big box stores, shoppers will be able to score Black Friday discounts at sites like Bed Bath & Beyond, JC Penney and Sam’s Club (which now has a 90-day free trial to let you shop SamsClub.com without a membership). Check out QVC’s Black Friday deals too, which you can shop online at QVC.com (I.e. no more dialing into an infomercial hotline).
What Are the Best Black Friday Tech Deals 2021?
When it comes to the best Black Friday tech deals for 2021, RetailMeNot lists items like VIZIO TVs, JBL wireless earbuds, and Samsung Galaxy watches (which are part of Samsung’s “Exciting Values” sale on electronics and laptops).
Buy: VIZIO 70 $749.99
VIZIO’s M-series TVs are all on sale for Black Friday, at BestBuy.com and on Amazon.com. The best deal is on their 70-inch M7 Series Quantum LED 4K TV, which is on sale for $749 — a whopping $350 off and the lowest price we’ve seen all year. This is one of the best Smart TV deals for Black Friday. Other sizes are on sale too, from a 50-inch unit all the way up to 75 inches. See full VIZIO deals here.
You can also expect a number of Black Friday laptop deals, on popular brands like Microsoft, Lenovo, HP laptops and Google Chromebooks. Gaming laptops are also expected to be discounted (see: Razer laptop deals here), as are gaming accessories overall, from gaming speakers (for PC gaming) to gaming headsets and headphones with mics. Logitech is a great site to shop for Black Friday gamer deals too.
Buy: Samsung Galaxy Chromebook 14-Inch $179.99
One of the best deals right now is at Microsoft, where you can get a free pair of earbuds ($199.99 value) with the purchase of any Surface Pro 8 bundle. The bundle includes your choice of Surface Pro 8, Surface Pro Signature Keyboard, Microsoft 365, and Microsoft Complete Protection Plan plus the wireless earbuds free.
And one of last year’s best-sellers is expected to sell well again: the Nintendo Switch gets an OLED model this fall, but expect original Nintendo Switch deals to be snapped up from now through Cyber Monday. See the latest Nintendo Switch Black Friday deals here.
Retailers have also started posting Black Friday Apple deals, which is especially impressive since the store doesn’t participate in Black Friday on its own. Right now, the new AirPods Pro are on sale for $159 as of this writing on Amazon — more than $90 off its regular price.
Buy: New Apple AirPods Pro $169.99
And you can start shopping early Black Friday deals on headphones, like these brand-new Bose Noise-Cancelling Headphones on sale for just $179 — a $170 discount.

What Are the Best Black Friday Fashion Deals 2021?
Black Friday weekend is a change to score huge discounts on clothing, shoes, bags and accessories online, and RetailMeNot lists says to expect “over a thousand deals at hundreds of favorite retailers, like Amazon, Nike, Macy’s and Ugg.
Fast fashion retailers like H&M, Zara, Uniqlo and Gap, also typically have big discounts — sometimes up to 60% off fashion and accessories. In fact, Gap is getting started early, with a 40-50% off sale happening right now on Gap.com.
Looking for Black Friday footwear deals? Last year saw Black Friday deals at adidas, Reebok and other sneaker/athletic wear sites too, with FootLocker.com offering big discounts as well.
Buy: adidas Ultraboost 21 Running Shoes $75+
And Black Friday is a chance to score rare discounts on luxury fashion and accessories, from sites like Mr. Porter, Net-a-Porter, SSENSE and Shopbop (which now carries men’s and women’s wear). Amazon is also offering 50% off men’s and women’s watches, from brands like Timex, Bulova, Tommy Hilfiger and more.
Kay Jewelers in particular is offering 25%-50% off everything from luxury timepieces, to wedding bands and gold chains, like this Milano Rope Chain fashioned in 10K gold.
