Black Friday is November 29 — however Best Buy are kicking off first, in which case it is now. The merchant has begun early with a massive sale which comprises some of the greatest deals we have seen of the vacation season so far. Best Buy are putting the all time cheapest prices on the Apple Watch Series 4, this season’s MacBook Air, Beats headphones along with also the HomePod smart speaker. Rhere are also killer deals to be had at Best Buy on Microsoft’s new Surface Pro 7 and a heap of other laptops, tablets, TVs and more.You need to be a member of My Best Buy rewards program, the basic tier of which is free, to take advantage of some of the best sale prices. Discounts are available online and in-store. We’ll keep this list up to date with the best deals in real-time, but the current highlights are below.Best Buy has also revealed its Black Friday ad, offering many specific products it’s selling for the real Black Friday timeframe later this month. Note that most of these sale prices are good through Sunday, November 10, but some will sell out as the sale progresses.
Best Buy has Bose’s SoundLink Revolve on sale for $120, which is the lowest price we’ve seen for it. This model is smaller than the SoundLink Revolve Plus, but it’s a very good compact Bluetooth speaker.

Best Buy has the JLabs JBuds Air on sale for $30 through Sunday, Nov. 10. They normally retail for $50. JLabs makes a lot of true wireless earphones and this is its most affordable — and frankly, the only one I’d buy. It’s a decent set of true wireless earbuds that’s a relative bargain at $30.
We saw this deal last year but it’s still a good one: Sony’s micro Bluetooth speaker, the SRS-XB01, is on sale for $15 at Best Buy.

If you’re less inclined to buy from Apple, Garmin’s rugged fitness watches are great. The Fenix 5X cost $700 when it came out in 2017 — now, Best Buy has it for $300. I’ve been using Garmin’s lower-end Forerunner 245 and I like it a lot. The model on sale here includes all of its fitness tracking functions and adds an altimeter and barometer. Plus, you get topographic US maps, routable cycling maps for turn-by-turn navigation and a scratch-resistant sapphire lens.

Walmart has been selling these headphones for about $120 — a massive $80 discount off the $200 list price. Now, Best Buy takes it a step further by cutting the price to $90.

We love the UE Boom 2 — a compact, durable wireless Bluetooth speaker that plays loud and sounds good. It’s stain-resistant, shock-resistant and fully waterproof. Battery life is a strong 15 hours, and it can be paired with a second UE speaker for stereo sound.

Sure, this entry-level configuration has lower-end components (Intel Core i3 processor, 4GB of RAM, 128GB SSD). But you’re still getting the best Windows two-in-one tablet, with the Type Cover thrown in, for $600. This is a dynamite deal.
