Black Friday 2019: The best tech deals at Amazon, Walmart, Best Buy, Newegg, and more

Much hype went into the lead-up to Black Friday 2019, with some changes to retailers’ habits—more stores released early looks at their advertisements for Thanksgiving week, as well as small amounts of the best deals to chum the waters for the main event.

Well, Black Friday is here now, and though many deals are of varities we’ve seen before (Echo Dot or Google Home Mini for dirt cheap, anyone?), some genuinely unique standout bargains exist within the piles and piles of fodder. To help you spot them, we’ve sifted through popular stores’ advertisements and websites to find the true gems, all of which are listed below.

Everything we’ve picked are items that we’ve rated highly or that enjoy tremendous popularity and are near or below the historical all-time low price. So if you see gear that you like, you can rest assured that we’ve done your research for you.

Note: These prices are the best we’ve seen based on the information available to us. However, stores often start price-matching one another and even undercutting each other, so if a deal you like is at a physical store you can’t get to easily, it’s worth checking other stores to see if they have price-matched. (Or actually do have a price-matching policy.)

The best Black Friday 2019 tech deals

Now that the Black Friday deluge has begun, we’ve taken our full list of deals (begun earlier this week and arranged by category), added new ones, and sorted them by store. That way, if you have a preferred place to shop, you can easily see what’s available to you. In each section, we’ve cherry-picked the best bargains for that retailer—so while the price meets our criteria for a very good price (near, at, or below the historical all-time low), it may not be the absolute lowest price available during Black Friday.

Keep an eye on this page, as it’ll get continual updates through Sunday!

Our top picks

If we called out every single fantastic bargain, the list would be pretty unwieldy. Instead, I’ve summed up the outlook for a handful of popular product categories. For the full story, check out all the individual deals further down.

Audio: The hot deals are for true wireless earbuds, with the Jabra Elite 65t, Macworld’s former pick for the best true wireless earbuds, tumbling to a rock-bottom $100 at Amazon and other retailers due to the release of the 75t. (The sporty “active” version of the 65t is also on sale for $140.)

We already liked the Fitbit Inspire HR at its $100 MSRP, and its 30% discount for Black Friday makes it even more appealing.

Fitness trackers: Fitbit’s newest trackers have all hit low prices, with the already-affordable Inspire HR plummeting to $70 at Best Buy, Amazon, Walmart, Kohl’s, and many other stores. The Ace 2, Charge 3, Versa Lite, Versa 2, and other trackers from Garmin and Samsung can be found at great prices at multiple retailers.
