The first batch of Best Buy Black Friday deals are now live. These are the earliest Black Friday deals we've ever seen from the retailer. While we'd normally scoff at deals this early in the season, Best Buy is offering a handful of epic sales that match or beat 2021's best deals. 

Last year, Best Buy dominated the holiday season with epic deals on TVs. For instance, the retailer offered the 55-inch Vizio OLED TV for just $899. (That remains the best OLED TV deal of all time). Currently, you can get that same TV for $999, which is still an epic steal and a rare price for any OLED TV. Best Buy Black Friday deals are also slashing the price of Apple devices, kitchen appliances, and robot vacuums. Here's what you can buy right now.

Best Buy Black Friday deals — what to expect

4K TVs: Best Buy offered some of the best TV deals last year.  In addition to the aforementioned OLED TV deal, the retailer also had a TCL 55-inch 4K TV for just $199. It's a price we haven't seen once throughout all of 2021. We expect Best Buy to offer this deal again in 2021, likely on a newer model. We may even the price of a 55-inch 4K TV go for as low as $179, though don't expect it to be one of the newer models. 

Apple: When it comes to Apple devices, Best Buy Black Friday deals are among the best. Earlier this year, Best Buy has the Editor's Choice MacBook Air on sale for an unbelievable price of $749. It was an exclusive students-only deal. (Non-students paid $849, which is still $150 off). Sadly, we may not see that $749 price point again. However, the base model will likely crash to $799 at Best Buy. This time, the deal will not require a valid edu e-mail. 

PS5: Best Buy held its first ever in-store PS5 restock in September. We've also seen monthly Best Buy RTX 3080 restock. We wouldn't be surprised if the retailer offers more in-store restocks as November approaches. Online shoppers shouldn't worry too much, however; as we expect GPU and console drops to continue online as well.
