I make most of my major purchases in November. If you want to save money, so should you. November is the best month to buy just about anything. That's due to the fact that practically every retailer saves their best deals for this month. Whether you're buying a new TV or replacing an old coffee machine, no retail holiday comes close to matching the deals you'll find on Black Friday.  

That said, there are literally hundreds of Black Friday deals live right now, which can be overwhelming. I've been covering Black Friday for 15 years now. On this page I'm listing the best deals I've seen all year. These are the price drops even I didn't expect to see. I've carefully vetted and price checked all of the deals below, so you know you're getting the best price possible. So if you want to get your holiday shopping done early — here are the best deals I'd shop right now. 

Best Black Friday deals now

Paramount Plus: was $5.99 now $1.99 per month
Mixing live news and sports with original TV shows and recently released movies, Paramount Plus is a strong option for cord-cutters. You can also get access to Showtime's library of TV shows and movies for just an additional $2 a month in this limited-time deal. I just got hooked on Couples Therapy (Showtime), so I'll likely be taking advantage of this deal myself. Use code: BLACKFRIDAY

Croc sale: Crocs from $9 @ Walmart
I've never worn a pair of Crocs, but I know plenty of people who swear by them. Right now Walmart is knocking up to 50% off select men's, women's and children's Crocs. After discount, deal prices start from $9. The sale includes all-terrain clogs, slip-resistant clogs, sandals, and more. More importantly, in most cases it beats the direct sale from Crocs.com.

Roku TV 55" Plus Series 4K QLED TV: was $499 now $379 @ Best Buy

Roku TV 55" Plus Series 4K QLED TV: was $499 now $379 @ Best Buy
The Roku Plus Series is an outstanding value. In our Roku Plus Series 4K QLED TV review, we said it offers a great smart interface, HDR color, and excellent sound at an affordable price. It features a QLED screen along with full array local dimming. You also get Dolby Vision/HDR 10 Plus/HLG support, Apple HomeKit/Alexa/Google Assistant support, and four HDMI ports. Gamers take note that while it's reliable for casual play, you only get a 60Hz screen and no HDMI 2.1 support. I have the Roku 50-inch Select Series ($279), which doesn't boast a QLED screen, but is still a great bargain and TV.
65" for $549 ($100 off)
75" for $799 ($200 off)

Ninja Coffee Maker: was $79 now $59 @ Amazon
I've been using this coffee machine for a full year now (in fact I used it this morning) and I love it. Compact and easy to use, the Ninja CE251 Coffee Machine is a no-fuss, 12-cup coffee brewer with a removable 60-ounce water reservoir and adjustable warming plate that can keep your coffee hot for up to 4 hours. The machine lets you pick from classic or rich brew settings and it can also be programmed up to 24 hours in advance. You can read more about the machine in my Ninja CE251 hands-on.

Arc'teryx Kyanite Fleece Hoody:

Arc'teryx Kyanite Fleece Hoody: was $150 now $89 @ Arc'teryx
Hoodie/fleece season is here and this Arc'teryx zip-up fleece just got a serious discount. Lightweight, comfortable, and now on sale for less than a Benjamin, which is a total steal in my book for a piece of high-tech, trendy outerwear. This one is only available in the "Jungle" green color, which I find shocking because it is nothing short of fantastic. It's also available in multiple sizes.

LG A2 48" 4K OLED TV: was $1,299 now $549 @ Best Buy

LG A2 48" 4K OLED TV: was $1,299 now $549 @ Best Buy
This TV hit $569 last Black Friday. I wasn't expecting it to sell for less this year, but Best Buy has shaved another $20 off, which makes it the least-expensive OLED TV of all time. The A2 is LG's entry-level OLED. In our LG A2 OLED review, we said it offers a wonderfully colorful picture and fairly strong audio. It offers Dolby Vision/HDR10/HLG support, LG's webOS platform, and built-in Google Assistant/Amazon Alexa. Console gamers take note: It's a budget model, so you only get a 60Hz panel and three HDMI ports, with no HDMI 2.1 support. Otherwise, it's great for casual gaming and streaming. The 48-inch model is a Best Buy exclusive. 

Brooklinen Sheet Bundle: was $377 now $245 @ Brooklinen

Brooklinen Sheet Bundle: was $377 now $245 @ Brooklinen
My first Black Friday purchase for 2023 is this sheet bundle from Brooklinen. It's 20% off and includes a fitted sheet, flat sheet, four pillowcases, and a duvet cover. It's available in various sizes/styles.

Apple Watch 9 (GPS/41mm): was $399 now $329 @ Amazon
This is the deal I would buy if I were updating my Apple Watch. Amazon has it on sale now for just $329, which is its lowest price ever. The new watch features a faster S9 chip for better performance, 4-core neural engine, and an 18-hour battery life. It also supports Apple Double Tap, a new gesture that can be used to answer/end a call, stop a timer, play/pause music, or dismiss an alarm. In our Apple Watch 9 review, we said the Editor's Choice watch got significant performance upgrades and remains the best smartwatch you can buy.

40% off Flash Sale! Our favorite value mattress is now 40% off in Nectar's annual flash sale. This short-lived sale is traditionally held in early November with prices we may not see again till next year. In our Nectar mattress review, we called the Editor's Choice mattress a tremendous value for the money. We found it's very comfortable (thanks to its five layers of memory foam) and it offers excellent pressure relief around your shoulders, hips, and back. Bonus points for offering an impressive 365-night trial and a forever guarantee. Currently, you can get the twin mattress for $359 (was $599) or the queen for $659 (was $1,099).

Echo Dot with Clock w/ TP-Link Smart Bulb: was $82 now $34 @ AmazonEditor's Choice!

Echo Dot with Clock w/ TP-Link Smart Bulb: was $82 now $34 @ Amazon
Editor's Choice! Ok, so technically the Echo Dot with Clock (5th Gen) was $2 cheaper back in July. However, it now comes with a TP-Link Kasa smart bulb. The Echo Dot with Clock packs Alexa functionality and a great speaker into a compact shell. The addition of the LED clock display makes it our favorite Alexa speaker. We also love the built-in Eero WiFi extender and the room temperature sensor. If you're an Alexa newbie or want to update an older Echo, the Echo Dot with Clock is the best smart speaker and best smart home device you could buy.

Blink Mini Camera (3-Pack): was $100 now $39 @ Amazon

Blink Mini Camera (3-Pack): was $100 now $39 @ Amazon
If you need to cover multiple rooms on a budget you can grab three Blink Minis for just $39 — $60 off the original price (just a single Blink Mini costs $35). These affordable cameras still pack a crisp 1080p resolution which makes out people and objects in motion. Notifications hit your devices within seconds and the cameras' infrared night vision mode makes it easy to see what's happening even in pitch-black rooms like a basement. Keep in mind that if you're away often and want to save recordings, you'll need to pay a subscription fee. However, they make great monitors for motion notifications and dropping into live feeds to check up on kids, pets, and even doorway activity.

Shark Cordless Vacuum Detect Pro: was $449 now $379 @ Amazon
I've been using the Shark Cordless Vacuum Detect Pro for a few weeks and it does an excellent job of picking up dust, hair, and debris from carpeting and hardwood floors. I like that the cordless vacuum is light and easy to maneuver. Additionally, it has an auto mode that automatically increases the suction power when vacuuming carpets or difficult to reach areas. The vacuum also has a HEPA filter to trap allergens and keep dust inside of the unit.
