157 Best Early Black Friday Deals for 2022: Apple, Google, Microsoft, Sony, Nintendo, Sonos, and More


Black Friday week is here, and a barrage of early Black Friday deals has gone live over the weekend. Black Friday and the ensuing days/weeks create a notoriously hectic and overloaded shopping event, but it’s also the best time to find year-long low prices on some of our most highly recommended tech. Naturally, we’ve done days of research and hunting to deliver the best tech deals this event has to offer, and we’ll continue to do so as things change shape through Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Each brings its own cascade of new deals.

The biggest retailers and manufacturers, like Apple, Microsoft, Amazon, Best Buy, Target, and Walmart, have all posted early Black Friday deals lists. There’s already a lot to highlight for big-ticket items like 4K TVs, Apple iPads, MacBooks, and Surface devices. A range of 4K TVs made our list, from higher-end offerings from Samsung and LG to more reasonably priced options from Hisense and TCL, and much more. All of which received strong reviews from trusted sources like Rtings.com, among many others. If you’re looking for smart home devices like smart speakers, video doorbells, and streaming sticks, Amazon and Google have large chunks of their lineups on sale, matching or beating record lows. Likewise with robot vacuums from Roomba.

As for smaller items, Target’s buy-two-get-one-free deals on books and video games are an excellent value, packed with a good mix of new releases and modern classics. Xbox and Playstation have also launched video game sales in their respective stores, bringing down prices often by 50 percent on a number of in-demand titles. For stocking stuffers, we have deals on our favorite chargers from Anker, as well as microSD and SSD storage solutions from SanDisk, Western Digital, and Samsung.

Of course, this is just scratching the surface. There are also year-long lows on some of our favorite headphones and wearables, as well as generous discounts on GoPro, Pixel 6 and Pixel 7 phones, Xbox Consoles with gift cards, Meta Quest bundles, and much more. Check the full curated list below.
