11 Black Friday deals that don’t suck

Black Friday there are still a few days left, but the first deals have already started at several major retailers. This means you can jump into your holiday shopping before the turkey is even defrosted. The downside, however, is that some of the best deals may actually sell out before Black Friday even hits.

So don’t let the deal you’re looking at sell out. Start shopping early (like right now) to make sure you’re saving as much as possible on everything you need this year. These deals are out now and they don’t suck, we promise.

Whenever Amazon has offered a bundle like this in the past, it’s sold out before the sale period ends. This being Amazon’s newest Echo Dot, we anticipate there will be a lot of interest in the huge discount, so make sure you grab one now before it’s too late.

The second-generation AirPods Pro are down to $200 right now at several retailers, but we’d be surprised if this deal lasts until Friday. These were just released in September and have been receiving rave reviews ever since. Grab a pair today, before you have to pay more later.

The Pixel 6A is one of our favorite Android phones under $500, but at $299 it’s easily the best Android phone to recommend for most people right now. It has an amazing camera, good battery life, and is super affordable with this deal. It comes in three colors, but we expect that to change sooner rather than later.

Best buy

This double basket air fryer allows you to cook two different foods at two different temperatures if needed which is a huge convenience. Since I bought one a few months ago, I’ve used this model almost every single day. It cooks well, is easy to clean and produces reliable results. Grab one today, you won’t be disappointed.

Apple just released the Apple Watch Ultra in September and we’ve seen very few discounts since then. This $60 discount is the biggest drop we’ve seen to date, so if you’ve seen one you’ll want to act now because we don’t expect it to stick around for long.

Amazon’s Fire tablets are some of the best-selling devices during times like Black Friday, and right now the company has its newest (and smallest) tablet at a seriously affordable price point at just $40. and three colors are available, but they could change at any time, so be sure to grab one now.

Sam’s club

Right now, new members can get 50% off their first year of Sam’s Club membership. With that, you’ll pay $25 for access to Sam’s Club warehouses, discounted gas, and all of the other great perks. This deal will expire on Thursday, November 1. 24.


While not exactly a “bargain,” Walmart will have a very limited supply of the God of War Ragnarok PS5 bundle in stock throughout the holiday shopping season. Be sure to only consider buying when it’s listed at $559, or else you’re overpaying from a third party.

The A-Series Pixel Buds are 50% off at Verizon for a limited time, which is one of the best prices we’ve seen. These amazing true wireless earphones are absolutely worth the money, so make sure you pick up a pair now. Not a Verizon customer? Don’t worry, you can check out as a guest and still get this great deal.

Whether you travel for pleasure or business, you should use Dollar Flight Club to help you get the best flights at the cheapest prices. Right now, you can pick up two lifetime memberships for just $149, which is the absolute best deal we’ve seen on these. The best part? Since it’s a pack of two, you can keep one for yourself and give the other as a gift.

Deals on Sonos products are few and far between, which means that when they do show up, they tend to sell out quickly. This discount on the Sonos Roam SL laptop gets you a great little speaker at a great price. It comes in two colors, and you can upgrade to the bundle with the refill kit for $176.
