UPDATE: Nov. 17, 2023, 12:30 p.m. EST This story has been updated with new early Black Friday deals from Best Buy.
Best Buy’s Black Friday event is here.
The nine-day affair will run from Nov. 17 (a week before the actual holiday) through Saturday, Nov. 25, and feature a bevy of deals across a wide variety of categories, from tech to home goods and more.
That calendar concludes with a Cyber Monday Savings Event featuring “savings [of] up to 50% on top gifts” from Sunday, Nov. 26 to Monday, Nov. 27 (or actual Cyber Monday), but additional deals will likely succeed it. Last year, Best Buy hosted a series of 24-hour flash sales called 20 Days of Deals throughout December.

Best Buy was the first major retailer to announce its Black Friday plans on Oct. 17 (followed by Target, Walmart, and finally Amazon), and it’s been the busiest so far: Alongside its Black Friday and Cyber Monday events, Best Buy is dishing out elusive releases and exclusive discounts as part of its new app-exclusive Best Buy Drop program throughout the holidays. It’s also hosting a new series of livestreamed holiday shopping events spotlighting popular gift ideas and some limited-time deals.
All Best Buy Black Friday deals are available in limited quantities with no rain checks, and items that sell out right away may not get restocked later on. This is especially true for any Drops, so be ready.
Everything you need to know about Black Friday 2023: The first early deals arrive in late October
Below, we’re keeping a running list of the best Black Friday deals at Best Buy. Check back often, because we’ll be continuously updating it throughout the sale.
Heads up: Best Buy sometimes messes with products’ original prices, making deals appear better or worse than they actually are, so we cross-check its listings with brand and manufacturer sites whenever possible. As such, you may see some price discrepancies between the MSRPs on its product pages and our (correct) deal breakdowns below.
Note: All newly added deals are marked with a ✨.
Why we like it
Budget-friendly OLED TVs are relatively rare — as are discounts that exceed the 50% mark among big-name brands like LG. This is a match of a members-only deal we first saw during Best Buy’s 48-Hour Flash Sale in mid-October, which was meant to compete with Prime Big Deal Days (Amazon’s October Prime Day sale).

Why we like it
Geared toward basic web browsing, email sending, and document creation, this 15.6-inch Acer Chromebook has an older Intel Celeron N4020 processor with 4GB of RAM, 64GB of eMMC storage, a 12.5-hour battery life, and a 720p webcam. It also comes with its own fabric case. Best Buy will probably drop a sub-$100 Chromebook at some point during its Black Friday sale — we saw a $79 one last year — but for now, this is the cheapest laptop it’s offered this season. (Note that it typically retails for $219.99 on the Acer website, so Best Buy’s price is slightly inflated.)

Microsoft’s 13-inch Surface Pro 9 is a premium detachable tablet with an impressive 15-hour battery life, a vibrant 3:2 touchscreen, and crisp 1080p cameras (including a front-facing selfie camera that supports logins via facial recognition). Its 12th-gen Intel processor makes it a little outdated, but it performed well enough in testing to secure a 4/5 rating and an Editors’ Choice Award from our sister site, PCMag. The configuration with an Intel i5 CPU, 16GB of RAM, and 256GB of storage comes with a Surface Pro Keyboard (worth $139.99) at Best Buy, where it’s currently on sale for $999.99 — a 35% total savings.

You’ll need a few spare controllers to play Super Mario Party with pals. This package deal bundles a copy of the game with Red and Blue Joy-Con for just $100, which is $40 less than what you’d pay for them separately. It’s one of Nintendo‘s first Black Friday offers of the season, and it’s a Best Buy exclusive.

Headphone and earbud deals
Why we like them
The Sony WH-1000XM5s are an impeccable pair of premium wireless, over-ear noise-canceling headphones that won our Mashable’s Choice Award: “I found myself reaching for these headphones over my AirPods and Sennheiser PXC 550-IIs,” writes deputy reviews editor Miller Kern. Best Buy’s Black Friday price cut matched a deal on the Sony website at the time of writing.
