It's official: the first batch of Best Buy Black Friday deals are now live. The early sales will run through Friday, October 22 and include Chromebooks from $99 and up to $540 off Samsung appliances. 

These are the earliest Black Friday deals we've ever seen from Best Buy. However, the announcement doesn't come as a surprise. Amazon launched its Amazon Epic Daily Deals event earlier this month and Walmart Deals for Days has also been confirmed. Here are the discounts Best Buy will offer next week:

Chromebook sale

Chromebook sale: from $99 @ Best Buy
Chromebooks are inexpensive laptops that run Google's Chrome OS. As a result, they tend to pack slightly less powerful specs than Windows machines. (Although there are some Chromebooks with heftier spec sheets). As past of its Tuesday sale, Best Buy will have Chromebooks on sale from $99, which is the starting price we normally see in mid-November. 

More deals to come November 19

If the devices you want aren't on sale next week, there's no need to worry. In its announcement, Best Buy is also confirming more Black Friday discounts will begin on Friday, November 19. That's a week before the official Black Friday date. 

In terms of shipping, Best Buy states that same-day delivery will be available on thousands of products. Orders placed by 3 p.m. local time will be delivered by 9 p.m. local time. Next-day delivery will also be free on orders priced $35 or more. Best Buy will also offer contactless curbside pickup at all locations. It's worth noting that Best Buy will be closed on Thanksgiving Day.

Like most major retailers, Best Buy is offering a Black Friday price guarantee. My Best Members (free to enroll) and Totaltech members ($199/year) will automatically get refunded if something they buy at Best Buy drops further in price before Black Friday (November 26).

TV sale: deals from $119 @ Best Buy
Best Buy currently has one of the most epic TV deals of all time. The retailer has smart TVs on sale for as low as $119.

These will be the cheapest TV deals we see till the arrival of the holidays. 

Bella Pro Series 6qt Air Fryer

Bella Pro Series 6qt Air Fryer: was $99 now $44 @ Best Buy
Lowest price: Air Fryers are becoming an essential kitchen gadget. Not only are air fryers easy to use, throwing food into what's essentially a super-fast heating compact convection oven makes it far more convenient than waiting for a standard oven to pre-heat. The Bella Pro Series Air Fryer has excellent reviews at Best Buy, and at a 6-qt capacity, you can load it up with lots of healthy chicken strips or French fries. 

8.3" iPad mini 2021 Best Buy

Samsung Galaxy Chromebook 2

Samsung Galaxy Chromebook 2: was $699 now $599 @ Best Buy
The Galaxy Chromebook 2 is one of our favorite Chromebooks. It's also the first to pack a QLED display, which makes the panel bright and vibrant enough for just about any use. It features a 13.3-inch QLED 1080p LCD, 2.1GHz Core i3-10110U CPU, 8GB of RAM, and a 128GB eMMC. 

TCL 55" 6-Series 4K QLED TV

TCL 55" 6-Series 4K QLED TV: was $949 now $699 @ Best Buy
Editor's Choice deal: We named TCL's 6-Series line of TVs one of the top TVs we've reviewed. We especially like the mini-LED backlighting and QLED enhancement. The result is impressive color and brightness, with some of the best HDR performance we've seen on anything this side of an OLED display. The new 2021 models continue that unbeatable value and feature Dolby Vision/HDR10/HLG support, full array local dimming, THX Certified Game Mode, Siri/Alexa/Google Assistant support, and a 120Hz refresh rate.
