Once more, Black Friday will soon arrive, bringing with it some of the finest sales of the year. Now is the perfect time to buy if you’ve been wanting to get a new TV, appliance, or smart home gadget, or if you’re seeking unique presents for loved ones.
Best Buy is starting to roll out its discounts early, but there is an overwhelming amount of merchandise to look through, and not everything that is on sale is a good value.
I’ve included the greatest goods we’ve reviewed—many of which I’ve tried myself or written about in my years of covering tech in almost every category—as well as those that come highly recommended by professionals and our Verge colleagues to help you find the bargains that are worthwhile.
In addition to offering deep discounts on technology, Best Buy also offers kitchen, toy, and home deals, many of which are available through Monday, November 28. As Thanksgiving approaches, be sure to check back frequently for even better bargains. Also, don’t forget to subscribe to our email newsletter for even more information on sales.

40% off HP Victus Gaming Laptop, normally $480 $800
Even though two-in-one computers like the Surface Pro are fantastic, when it comes to specs, they still fall short of a well-built gaming laptop. A good gaming laptop typically costs well over $1,000, but HP’s Victus with an Intel i7 processor manages to cram a lot of power into a reasonably priced package. Even though the Verge’s Monica Chin claims that there are better laptops available for a little more money, the Victus is still a viable option if you can find one on sale.

If you discover the perfect offer, Black Friday might be a terrific time to purchase a new TV. Welch claims that LG’s C2 TV, which has four HDMI ports that can all support up to a 120Hz refresh rate and clever software that activates whenever the TV detects a gaming-console connection, maybe the best gaming TV you can buy because of its excellent contrast and black levels, fast performance, and four HDMI ports that can all support up to a 120Hz refresh rate.
4K streaming media player and speaker from Roku

Even with the TV volume turned up all the way, confused language might be difficult to understand. Sound bars are a great solution. But they are frequently expensive. One of our top sound bars, the Roku Streambar, offers adequate sound quality for under $200—and that’s before taking any discounts into account. Oh, and it also functions as a 4K streaming device, so you won’t have to clutter up your TV stand or dresser with that additional item.
Google TV and Google Chromecast
$20\s$30 now 33% off
