119 best Black Friday deals: Beats, AirPods, 4K TVs, Sony headphones and more

It’s impossible to avoid Black Friday right now, and that makes it hard to find out which sales are actually worthwhile. We’re here to help. Our Black Friday team has been hard at work sorting through every sale to find the best. That includes Walmart, Amazon, Target and Best Buy. We’re pulling together the best Black Friday deals as we see them, as well as highlighting previous deals that are still in stock.

What about Cyber Monday deals?

Keep in mind that “Cyber Monday” deals are almost always the existing Black Friday deals, but with a different name. You may see some new items on sale for Monday, but it’s actually pretty rare. If you see a deal you like today or this weekend, we recommend pouncing on it. 

The best Black Friday deals

Roku Streaming Stick 4K and 4K Plus

Sarah Tew/CNET

The new Roku Streaming Stick 4K is the long-awaited update to the Roku Streaming Stick Plus. It features the same simple media streamer interface, large app selection and impressive search function found on all Roku devices, but also offers Dolby Vision support. Along with a stick-like design, Dolby Vision HDR 4K UHD is the main difference between the Streaming Stick 4K and the Express 4K Plus. Currently, the Streaming Stick 4K is on sale for less than the Express 4K Plus, which makes the newer device a compelling option for those looking for Dolby Vision support. 



With 5 cubic feet, this set is designed to let you wash king-size sheets and comforters at home. The set features AI technology to detect which settings to use on your load, and a preloaded dispenser holds up to 18 loads with one fill, so you can have your machine ready to go. It’s fast, too, cleaning loads in under 30 minutes.

It’s also worth noting that the washer and dryer are on sale separately as well, and that there is another dryer with nearly identical specs to this one on sale for $250 less.

The Sony WH-XB910Ns are a great, budget-friendly option for noise-canceling headphones. They can also pair with up to two Bluetooth devices at the same time for easy switching between devices. They were featured in our list of the best Sony headphones from this year.

GoPro Hero10 Black

Josh Goldman/CNET

This bundle includes the GoPro Hero10 action camera, two rechargeable batteries, a lanyard, a dual-battery charger and a camera sleeve. It’s a great starter kit or the perfect way to make upgrading your current GoPro more affordable.



The Galaxy Book Pro 360 boasts some pretty impressive specs for a combination laptop and tablet. It features 16GB of RAM and a full terabyte of memory, as well as a dazzling 15.6-inch AMOLED display for vibrant color. And with 20 hours of battery life and weighing barely over 3 pounds, it’s still plenty portable.



This 2021 model of the Fire HD 10 Plus is Amazon’s most advanced tablet to date. It features 4GB of RAM (twice as much as the previous generation) and a stunning 1080p 10.1-inch display. And at 42% off, this is the absolute lowest price we’ve seen. 



You don’t always need your large vacuum to clean up messes around your house or in your car, and that’s where this portable cordless handheld vacuum really comes in handy. It offers USB charging and lasts for up to 13 minutes per charge when using it at max suction.



Fitbit’s Inspire 2 is a great fitness tracker that offers a bunch of features without breaking the bank. It comes in a few different colors, but some of them are already selling out so you’ll want to act quick to grab one if interested.



This 1,500-piece set includes a variety of bricks and animals that can be used to build whatever you come up with in your head. There’s no right or wrong way to build with these, which means you can play with them for hours on end without getting bored.



This 11.6-inch 2-in1 laptop has a touchscreen, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage and comes in a few different colors. Some of the colors are already selling out, though, so you’ll want to act quick if you are interested. This is a great PC for casual web browsing, video calls with family, document creation and more.

TCL 5 Series TV (2021)

Sarah Tew/CNET

This 50-inch TCL TV features a 4K QLED display and runs Roku’s Smart TV operating system for quick and easy access to all of your favorite streaming apps. TCL added full-array local dimming to the 5-Series last year, along with quantum dot color, Dolby Vision, HDR10 and more.



This 10-piece set comes with everything you need to get started in a new kitchen and makes for a perfect upgrade for anyone with a mismatched set of pots and pans. It’s an aluminum nonstick cookware set that is oven-safe up to 450 degrees. Be sure to use code ENJOY15 for the full savings, and remember that you’ll also score $30 in Kohl’s Cash for a future purchase.



This bundle includes the all-new Echo Show 5 and the new Blink Mini indoor camera at a massive savings. For Black Friday, Amazon has the Echo Show 5 on sale for $45, which means that you can add an indoor security camera for just $5 extra. What’s great is that you can view that camera from the Echo Show 5 (and your phone), making it a perfect combo.


Urban Decay

Urban Decay is one of the most popular beauty brands out there, but that quality comes at a premium. Right now there are a few bundles worth checking out that won’t break the bank. Check out a few of the Urban Decay Black Friday deals on makeup sets we have highlighted below.

Naked Basics set for $42 (an $83 value) featuring the Naked 3 full-size eyeshadow palette and Naked 2 basic eyeshadow palette.

Naked 2some set for $52 (a $103 value) featuring the Naked 3 full-size eyeshadow palette and the Naked Cherry full-size eyeshadow palette.

Wild West set for $72 (a $102 value) featuring the Naked Wild West full-size eyeshadow palette, the All Nighter setting spray in travel size, their original eyeshadow primer in travel size and Perversion mascara.



This versatile Dyson V8 Motorhead Origin cordless stick vacuum is designed to make everyday quick cleaning easier with its strong suction and lightweight design. This Dyson V8 also converts to a handheld to help you clean cars, stairs and hard to reach places. If you have your heart set on an affordable Dyson this holiday season, you can currently get this cordless vacuum model for $250 at Target, $130 off its regular price. 


Sarah Tew/CNET

Battery life has become a bit better on modern phones, but this option from Motorola beats the competition pretty easily. It’s said to feature three-day battery life while still offering great specs including a 48-megapixel camera for capturing all your big memories. It comes in two different colors and you can grab it with 32GB of storage or upgrade to 64GB for a bit more.



The Surface Go 2 is designed to be an ultra-portable laptop. It offers a long-lasting battery, 10.5-inch display, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage and will be available to upgrade to Windows 11 when it’s available for this model. At this price, it does not come with the keyboard attachment, though that can be purchased separately. 


Instant Pot

The Instant milk frother and steamer from Instant Pot is a tool for those indoorsy types who, like me, enjoy cappuccinos, lattes and steamed milk, but don’t always like leaving home for it. It also works great for iced coffee, hot chocolate, matcha and more. The simple, sleek design looks great for countertops, but it is also small enough to store easily. There are four program functions: cold foam, light warm foam, thick warm foam, and warming without foaming. The 2-button control is easy to use and the non-stick interior is easy to clean, and right now this $50 splurge is available for just $28. 


Sarah Tew/CNET

The Fire TV Stick 4K Max is new this year, and it sits just above the Fire TV Stick 4K in Amazon’s lineup. It’s $10 more than the regular Fire TV Stick 4K, but for the extra $10 you get 40% more power as well as Wi-Fi 6 support for faster streaming. If you’re looking for a speedy device, look no further than the Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K Max. The Max loads apps almost immediately, and navigating around the system is swift and smooth. Even better, the Max supports nearly all the latest playback standards, including Dolby Vision. The downside to the Max is its Fire TV platform and the fact that ads are featured prominently throughout. We just don’t appreciate the TV becoming a giant rotating billboard for content or ads when in screensaver mode. But this is a good choice for those looking for a fast device or those hooked into the Amazon ecosystem. The Fire TV Stick 4K Max is the best Fire Stick on the market today, and it’s worth the extra money over the standard Fire TV Stick 4K.

Cricut Explore Air 2


‘Tis the season to get crafty. Whether you’re looking for a new weekend hobby or you’re dreaming of opening an Etsy shop, Cricut’s crafting machines can get you headed in the right direction. From personalized greeting cards and stickers to custom graphics for T-shirts and onesies, a Cricut machine lets you make anything your crafty heart desires. The Cricut Explorer Air 2 can cut, write and score, and it works with over 100 materials including vinyl, cardstock, bonded fabric and more. Right now, you can get the Explorer Air 2 for just $139 at Walmart, its lowest price to date. Not only that, but you’ll also get $30 in digital designs from Cricut for free with your purchase, just in case you need some inspiration for your next DIY project. 



OLED is one of our favorite display technologies — it offers the best contrast of any TV we’ve ever seen — and it doesn’t suffer from the motion blur associated with LCD. While you can pick up the 55-inch LG C1 for $1,300, you can save another $300 by choosing the 55-inch Vizio OLED instead. We haven’t reviewed the Vizio OLED TVs yet but we’re expecting them to be very competitive, especially against similarly priced LCDs.  

Apple's 2020 M1-powered 13-inch MacBook Air

Apple’s 2020 13-inch MacBook Air was one in the first crop of computers to be powered by the company’s M1 processor.

Stephen Shankland/CNET

The 2020 MacBook Air is our favorite Apple laptop for anyone in need of a basic everyday computer, and it’s available at a big discount this Black Friday. You can get select models for just $850, which makes it $150 cheaper than its usual price. The 2020 MacBook Air was one of the first Macs to come with Apple’s homegrown M1 processor, which brings significantly longer battery life and faster performance compared to the Intel-powered version.


Chris Monroe/CNET

Google’s second-generation Nest Hub is available for just $50 at Walmart, which is a significant discount compared to its usual $100 price. That brings Google’s smart display down to the same price as the screen-free Amazon Echo Dot when it’s not on sale. The Nest Hub can stream video from services like YouTube, Netflix and Disney Plus, function as a digital photo frame and lets you monitor your smart home devices. It has built-in Google Assistant for hands-free control, but the headlining feature is the ability to track your sleep — although you’ll eventually have to pay for this feature. Either way, that’s a lot of functionality for $50. 


If you’re shopping for a new pair of wireless headphones this Black Friday, Sony’s WH-1000XM4 are among the best. We love these headphones for their superb noise canceling, great sound quality, comfortable fit and improved voice calling capabilities. One of our only complaints is that these headphones are usually on the expensive side at their regular price of $350, but you can find them on sale at a roughly $100 discount at both Amazon and Target this Black Friday.


If you’ve been debating trying out Audible Premium Plus, the audiobook subscription service is offering 60% off your first three months ($6 per month). In addition, you’ll still get one Audible credit per month as well as access to Audible’s complete library of audiobooks, podcasts, originals and more. 

The deal is only available to new customers and runs through Dec. 31. After the first three months, the subscription will revert back to its regular $15 per month, but you can cancel at any time. 


Sarah Tew/CNET

We already thought the Pixel 5A 5G was an excellent value at its usual price of $450, but it’s an even more compelling deal this Black Friday: You can save $50 and get an unlocked Pixel 5A 5G for $399. While it’s missing the pricier Pixel 6’s bells and whistles, the Pixel 5A 5G stands out for its sharp screen, smooth performance and affordable price. You’ll get a spacious 6.34-inch OLED screen, a dual-lens camera and Google’s Pixel-exclusive features like Call Screen. It’s a great choice for anyone seeking an affordable Android phone this holiday season.


Hunt A Killer

Hunt a Killer, a murder mystery game subscription, is offering 30% off your first subscription box with promo code BLACKFRIDAY30, as well as special bundle deals, merchandise sales and more with code BLACKFRIDAY10

Hunt a Killer is an addictive, exciting and unique game that’s perfect for true crime enthusiasts and horror fans. Immerse yourself in a case, examine evidence, crack codes, eliminate suspects, confirm alibis and more. Hunt a Killer is an no-sweat gift that keeps on giving and it won’t go out of stock.


Sarah Tew/CNET

The $89 AirPods deal at Walmart is long gone — they’re back up to $115 there. But at Amazon, the AirPods 2 are holding at $100, or $29 less than the Apple Store price. Not bad if you like their open design and how they fit your ears.

Want a newer alternative? The Beats Studio Buds, 2021 true-wireless headphones, are also down to $100 today, and Amazon is giving away $10 of credit with those.


Pretty Litter

Pretty Litter — a lightweight, super absorbent silica gel litter — is offering 25% off of your first order for Black Friday with code FURIDAY25 at checkout. Pretty Litter helps you better monitor your cat’s health while making changing the litter box less gross. Pretty Litter changes color when it interacts with your cat’s urine and can potentially alert you to signs of urinary tract infections, kidney issues, bladder crystals, bleeding and more. 

Just choose how many cats you have and Pretty Litter will calculate how many bags to send (the company recommends changing the litter every month). 


If you have an older TV, we’re guessing it has two subpar experiences: sound and streaming. Dialogue from TV speakers is notoriously dodgy and — outside of Roku TVs — a lot of brands leave you stuck with old streaming apps, or worse, no access to new ones. 

That’s where the Roku Streambar comes in. It’s a mini soundbar that also includes Roku’s best-in-class streaming platform. Connect it to your TV’s HDMI port, and you’ve got better streaming and better sound all in one. (It’ll handle sound from other devices, like game consoles and cable boxes, too.)

Best of all, it’s on sale this week for $80 — that’s $50 off the list price, and an all-time low. Read our Roku Streambar review.



Dig deeper into your family history this holiday season with a $48 AncestryDNA Traits genetic testing kit. The sale saves you $71 versus its $119 list price. AncestryDNA Traits helps you learn how your genes influence appearance, fitness, nutrition and personal characteristics — as well as ethnicity estimates, geographic detail and historical insights that better complement Ancestry’s family tree features and records. You can check out how Ancestry’s DNA testing kit stacked up against 23andMe. Bear in mind: Not everyone is comfortable with DNA analysis if you’re considering this as a gift for someone else.



AeroGarden makes it easy for anyone to grow herbs and vegetables anywhere year-round. You can get the AeroGarden Bounty Basic for $140 — 53% off its list price — for Black Friday. When CNET reviewed the AeroGarden Bounty Elite in May, the adjustable light stand, plant care reminders and ease of use stood out. 

The AeroGarden Bounty Basic is a simplified version of the Elite model and can simultaneously grow up to nine different herbs, vegetables or flowers under 30-watt LED lights. The AeroGarden’s lights have an automatic timer as well as a digital screen that keeps track of your garden’s well-being. 


Amazon/Screenshot by CNET

Another “get it before it’s gone” laptop deal: We spotted this Acer on sale at Amazon at its lowest price to date. We haven’t reviewed it, but its basic specs are right in the zone for a solid Windows 10/11 laptop: 11th-generation Intel Core i7 CPU, 512GB of solid-state storage and a 14-inch screen. I’d prefer double its 8GB RAM, but this model is only $37 more than the 256GB version — definitely worth splurging for. 

Sling TV on Roku Ultra 4K 2021

Sarah Tew/CNET

Now through Cyber Monday (Nov. 29), you can get a second month of Sling TV for free after you prepay for one month. The deal applies to Sling domestic base services: the Orange plan ($35, 32 channels), the Blue plan ($35, 43 channels) or the Orange and Blue combo plan ($50, 51 channels). After the second month, the regular subscription rate will kick in, but you can cancel at any time. Sling TV’s Black Friday deal applies to first-time subscribers, former subscribers who have been deactivated for more than 180 days and customers who haven’t used a free trial within the last year.


Angela Lang/CNET

You can now get a yearlong Hulu subscription for $1 per month, 85% off its regular $7 per month price. Hulu’s deal runs now through Nov. 29 and gets you the ad-supported subscription plan. The special applies to new Hulu subscribers and returning subscribers who’ve been off the service for at least the last month.

After the 12 months, your Hulu subscription price will return to $7 per month, but you can cancel at any time. The only real catch: If you took advantage of Hulu’s 2020 Cyber Monday promotion, you won’t be eligible for the new discount. 


Sarah Tew/CNET

If you’re looking for a new streaming TV service, Philo is offering a $5 deal for new subscribers through Dec. 1. To save $20 on your first month, visit and enter code BCFM. After the first month, the full $25 rate kicks in, but you can cancel anytime.



Best Buy is running a Black Friday deal on a Bowflex C7 spin bike. This could be a good choice for those who want to save money compared to a Peloton subscription or something similar. It doesn’t have a screen as nice as a Peloton, but you could just place your own tablet in the holder below the screen. You could also use this bike with something like an Apple Fitness Plus subscription on iPad or an Apple TV, and have a Peloton-like experience that’s more flexible and less expensive. Best Buy is also offering an extended holiday return option, so you can return this item until Jan. 16.


TRX straps are suspension training tools you can use at home or in a gym for strength training.

Get TRX Systems and other accessories for 30% off and free shipping today. CNET named the TRX one of the best home exercise equipment pieces to buy in 2021 because of its compact size and various resistance training exercises. Each TRX suspension trainer kit comes with an anchor and an exercise guide to help you achieve TRX’s seven foundational moves: pushing, pulling, lunging, hinging, squatting, planking and rotating.


Kora Organics

During the Kora Organics Black Friday sale you can save 20% off skin care when using the code GLOWBRIGHT20 at checkout until Nov. 29. Owned by supermodel Miranda Kerr, Kora Organics is all about treating yourself well, inside and out. 

There are only a few Kora Organics items on sale at this time, so it’s simple to explore this offer without getting overwhelmed. All of the products target hyperpigmentation, dark spots, dullness and wrinkles and more. The name behind the brand, its sustainable model and its connection with crystal energy, notably Rose Quartz, all set this brand apart. You’ll also get a limited-edition beauty case for free if you spend $125 or more. 



The popular Bowflex SelectTech 552 adjustable dumbbells are back to their lowest price as part of Black Friday sales at Amazon and Bowflex. At both places the price is now $299 (normally $399). These are popular because they can replace 15 sets of barbells between 5 and 52 pounds. However, you can also get whole dumbbell sets for cheaper than this (see the CAP dumbbell deal below). These Bowflex dumbbells are all about saving space and reducing your footprint.



This adjustable high step aerobic platform is ideal for small spaces and would make an excellent addition to your home gym. Elevate your leg workouts with this space-saving piece of equipment. I personally own this step, and it tidily stores away in my apartment without being an eyesore. Amazon is taking $18 off from its original price of $57 — which is the lowest price I’ve seen it at all year.


Instant Pot

Should you desire an Instant Pot pressure cooker and an air fryer, this is a solid price for the bundle. It’s the popular 6-quart pot model and acts as a pressure cooker, air fryer, slow cooker, steamer, sauté pan, food warmer, sous vide, roaster, broiler and dehydrator. 

Wondering how the air fryer lid works? Check out the air-fried chicken I made in my Duo Crisp. It’s hard to fathom a kitchen appliance that does more than this one.


Our Place

This nonstick, multipurpose pan can do a whole lot more than most skillets. With deep sides, a built-in spoon rest and a pouring spout, there are countless uses for this well-designed piece of cookware. Read our Always Pan review.

Not only is the famous pan on sale but Our Place has its entire line of kitchen gear and tableware on sale right now. See the full sale here.


  CAP Barbell 150 LB Dumbbell Set with Rack


If you’re looking for a set of dumbbells for your home gym, CAP Barbell is offering $218 off of its 150-pound dumbbell set complete with rack. The set includes a pair of 5-pound, 10-pound, 15-pound, 20-pound and 25-pound coated hex dumbbells along with an A-frame storage rack.


June Oven

June may be the smartest oven ever. The brand is offering 25% off its Premium ($1,000) or Plus ($849) ovens now through Nov. 29 — and 15% off from Nov. 30 through Dec. 4. Use code THANKSPREMIUM or THANKSPLUS at checkout.



From now until Nov. 29, if you give one MasterClass subscription ($180) you’ll get one for yourself (or to gift) for free. A subscription affords unlimited access to the MasterClass library, which includes more than 110 classes covering topics including business, writing, fashion and culinary arts. Each class includes an average of 20 lessons of around 10 minutes each.

This makes an excellent BOGO gift for someone with a curious spirit or whom you don’t see often, since you can take the same classes and discuss your findings or sip your expertly prepared cocktails together over Zoom. 




Now is the time to snag the SoulCycle At-Home Bike. The retailer is taking $600 off the original retail price. Instead of paying $2,500, you can take home the bike for $1,900 this Black Friday. This includes free shipping, a 30-day free trial and a year warranty.

AirPods pro Apple Music

Sarah Tew/CNET

Possibly the best deal this season has been on the new AirPods 3 and AirPods Pro, but they’re starting to sell out. We no longer see the $159 AirPods Pro deal at Walmart (though your local store inventory may vary). A good alternative is Amazon, which still has them in stock for $170 — just $11 more. 

Note that Amazon also has the new AirPods 3 for $150, the lowest price to date for the latest headphones in Apple’s lineup.


The buds come boxed in eco-friendly packaging.

David Carnoy/CNET

Finally, don’t count out the Beats Studio Buds. These true-wireless headphones are also down to a new all-time low of $100 (save $50). Unlike AirPods, you can get Beats Studio Buds in multiple colors — and they’re Android-friendly.


Lodge Cast Iron


If you’re looking for long-lasting kitchenware, Lodge Cast Iron is offering up to $75 off on your $250 purchase this Black Friday. If that price is too steep, the site is also taking $50 off a $175 purchase and $25 off a $100 purchase. The aspiring chef in your life will appreciate one of Lodge’s highly acclaimed skillets or Dutch ovens. Use code TISTHESEASONING.



One easy way to get ahead of your inevitable “eat healthier” resolution is to find out what your body wants you to be eating in the first place. Many of us have lurking food sensitivities or mild allergies, and getting tested for them is the quickest way to find out for sure. That’s what Everlywell’s at-home testing kits are for. The brand also has at-home testing for COVID-19, fertility, STIs and more. 

Right now, you’ll get 35% off any orders up to $149 and 40% off orders of $150 or more with code HOLIDAY.



One of Nike’s best sales on Black Friday is for one of its most sustainable products: the Nike Sportswear Men’s Canvas Jacket made from Sustainable Materials. Normally $200, it’s on sale for $97.97 for Black Friday. Keep in mind that this isn’t a winter coat and it doesn’t have a warm lining. It’s more of a fall-and-spring jacket or for milder climates. But it’s made from from a denim-like cotton canvas that Nike says has at least 75% organic fibers, and the product uses an efficient construction pattern to minimize material waste. This product is part of Nike’s self-proclaimed “Move to Zero” journey toward zero carbon and zero waste.

You can also use the code BLACKFRIDAY at Nike’s checkout to get another 20% off, but that may not apply to all products. 


Nest Bedding

Need some soft and chic new sheets? Now through Dec. 13, Nest is offering 20% off select luxury mattresses, sheets and duvet bed sets, along with 10% off furniture and children’s mattresses. Buy a luxury mattress, and you’ll score an additional 20% off sheets and duvet sets — a total of 40% off in savings. Nest has 100% cotton sheet sets starting at $15.



Heyday is now offering 20% off on all skin care products in-store or online from over 20 skin care companies that specialize in helping people with skin issues such as hyperpigmentation, rough texture, breakouts and more.

This Black Friday promotion is unique in that it does not need a minimum purchase, but there are limitations. If you want to grab OSEA Malibu, Eminence, Josh Rosebrook or Heyday sets, you’re out of luck because they aren’t included in this offer. You also can’t combine this deal with any other offers, but that’s OK, because there are other brands to try like Supergoop!, Dr. Loretta, Naturopathic, Image Skincare and more.

If you’re unsure what kind of skin type or concern you have, try Heyday’s Skin Quiz. When you’re through, you’ll get a curated list of products to buy — including a cleanser, exfoliant, moisturizer and sunscreen, as well as a serum, toner and eye cream if you want them.  



If you want a Keurig coffee machine deal but have a particular model in mind, take advantage of Keurig’s sitewide sale where most of the brand’s pod-coffee makers, large and small, are down 25% with code TIMETOSAVE21.


This handy lid turns your 6-quart Instant Pot into a powerful air fryer. I’ve tested dozens of air fryers and this unit blasts food into crispy goodness as well as any of them. Plus, it’s a big space saver if you already have an Instant Pot.




Premium activewear brand Athleta is taking up to 60% off its clothing sitewide this Black Friday. Now is the time to snag some of Athleta’s popular leggings, sports bras, tops and more at a discounted rate. Rewards members also get free shipping with orders of $50 or more. 



Ready to kick the can and save loads on that monthly seltzer spend? Grab an easy SodaStream Terra while it’s at this low Black Friday price.



This is a mighty little blender for just $49 right now. With 1,000 watts you’ll have enough pop to make smoothies in a snap and the top-rated blender is down near an all-time low. I find Ninjas always punch above their weight (no pun intended).

$49 at Walmart


Amazon’s smart soap dispenser is compatible with Alexa.


A soap dispenser might sound like an odd gift but wait till you get your hands under this one. When I heard about Amazon’s $55 smart soap dispenser, I was skeptical. But I recently tried it and have to admit I was impressed. While $55 is a bit steep for the bathroom gadget, even with its sturdy design, fun features and smart connectivity, it’s a great buy at $38. That’s where it sits right now on sale at Amazon. 



If you’re looking to buy gifts for active friends and family members, Adidas has up to 50% off a bunch of their merchandise for Black Friday. The sale actually runs through Saturday. Most of the stuff isn’t 50% but there are some aggressive deals. For example, you can grab a pair of classic women’s Stan Smith shoes for $50 (normally $90), a kids’ puffer jacket for $48 (normally $80), or a classic Trefoil Hoodie for $39 (usually $65). 

Also note that if you join the Adidas mailing list then you might be able to get an additional 15% off your order.


Dan Ackerman

This is the biggest and most ambitious game of the growing modern board game era, known for its 40-pound box and play sessions that can run several hours. This sale price has dipped back down to its lowest ever, at $85. It’s usually between $120 and $140. It was originally released in 2017 and is still one of the most talked-about tabletop games. That’s why it earns a spot on my list of the best board games and why it’s generated a series of add-ons, sequels and even a PC game version. 



Ninja’s Foodi is the ultimate multicooker and does pretty much everything: air fries, sears, pressure cooks, sautés, slow-cooks, steams, dehydrates, bakes, roasts and more. The 5-quart Ninja Foodi is down to $110 at Target. That’s an all-time low and incredible value considering all that this small appliance does. 

By comparison, a renewed version of this same model is on sale at Amazon for $7 less.



Whenever I’m searching the net for interesting art or home decor, Society6 stuff always grabs my attention. I’m often seconds from buying it all but i can be on the pricey side. That’s not the case during the Black Friday sale right now when you grab nearly all of Society6’s incredible art at up to 50% off. The best part is that you’re supporting artists since Society6 draws from a community of independent artists to make their prints, pillows, phone cases, rugs, shirts and wall hangings.

Support local artists and snazz up your living space with the art and decor supersite’s Black Friday sale. 


Simi Sienna

It’s Black Friday, and Simi Sienna is offering a three-tiered discount for anybody wishing to perk up their wardrobes. With the discount code THANKS35, you can save $35 on a $125 purchase between now and Nov. 28. Other offers include $55 off when you spend $175 and use the code THANKS55, as well as $75 off when you spend $225 and use the code THANKS75.

Simi Sienna’s apparel sizes range from extra small to 3XL for shirts, coats and jeans, while slip-on shoes and sneakers are available in all sizes; however, you need check each shoe to see if it is available in your size. If you want to make a statement with a print that will help you stand out from head to toe, look into the Encyclia olive collection. You’ll find that items like hoodies, bucket hats, stretch shoe socks and other Encyclia Olive apparel are available. And if the Encyclia Olive line isn’t your taste, there are a variety of alternative designs to choose from. 



If you want a lot of blender for not a lot of money, there’s one Black Friday deal you’ll likely want to check out. Two years in a row, the 1,200-watt NutriBullet beat at least a dozen other models to nab the No. 1 spot in CNET’s big blender showdown. The powerful full-sized blender is currently down to $60 (normally $110) on Amazon for Black Friday. That’s the lowest we’ve ever seen it drop and as good a blender bargain as you’re likely to find. 

One of the best ultraportable Windows laptops you can buy is available at substantial discount. Right now you can get the latest Dell XPS 13 for the base model’s price but loaded with higher-end components.

The Dell XPS 13 is an amazing laptop for someone who’s looking for a premium Windows experience on par with what you’d get with a MacBook Air. The starting price usually hovers just below $1,000, so at first this might not look like a great bargain. The key is what you get inside for the money — the base model XPS 13 delivers pretty average productivity performance. This discounted model is loaded up with an 11th-gen Intel Core i7 processor, 16GB of memory and a 512GB PCIe NVMe SSD for storage, which will give you strong performance for years to come. Plus, it just looks good.



Chewy’s Black Friday sale goes through the week, but many of these deals are gone much sooner than that. The best bargains include dog beds, car seat covers, dog lounges and my favorite small dog carrier which is down to $27 right now. (I paid $90 when I bought it.) Toys and treats are mostly buy two, get one free. But if your dog or cat goes through them as fast as mine, there’s no such thing as too many.
