For a limited time, the Bose QuietComfort 45 Wireless Headphones are on sale for $249 at Amazon. That’s $80 off the full retail price of $329 for a total savings of almost 25%. This deal brings the ANC headphones back down to their lowest-ever price. Note that this same discounted price is currently available at Best Buy.

We rank the Bose QuietComfort 45 as some of the best headphones you can buy. In our Bose QuietComfort 45 review we labeled the slick headphones a “no-brainer for Bose fans who want to swap out their older QC headphones for something more modern, or shoppers who want first-class Bose noise cancellation for a cheaper price than the 700 .”

In our testing we were most impressed by the high-end active nosing canceling. QuietComfort 45 also packs the excellent sound quality that you’d expect from a Bose product. And these are rated for a strong 24 hours of battery life with ANC enabled.

One of the latest OLED TVs by Sony is on sale that brings it down to a pretty affordable price. This is the Sony Bravia XR A80K 65-inch OLED TV and while it doesn’t hold the top spot in our best OLED TVs list, it does bring some new features like a cognitive XR processor which delivers natural colors and special settings for gamers for the PlayStation 5. This TV is now on sale for $1,698 at Amazon (opens in new tab) which is the lowest price that it has ever dropped to.

OLED TVs offer incredible picture quality — each pixel on the screen of an OLED TV is lit and colored individually, and there’s no backlight behind the screen. That means richer colors and deeper blacks.

Gadgets are already starting to see record low prices in early Black Friday deals this time, so if you are on the fence about upgrading your TV, this is a sweet deal to consider.

TP-Link Deco X20

• TP-link Deco X20 3-pack mesh router: $249 $179 @ Amazon (opens in new tab)

We’re all looking for better connectivity during the holidays. No, not with that long-lost uncle who doesn’t hesitate to gas on about what he saw on cable news the other night — we’re talking better man connectivity, and a good mesh router can help you achieve that with your Wi-Fi network.

TP-Link’s Deco X20 mesh router is that good router, and right now, it’s on sale at Amazon. You can get a 3-pack of the Deco X20 mesh router for $179 (opens in new tab) — $70 off the regular $249 price. (If you don’t need the 5,800-square feet of coverage the 3-pack provides, Amazon is also discounting the 2-pack Deco X20 package.)

In our Deco X20 review, we were impressed by the excellent range and added security features. It’s also an inexpensive way to get Wi-Fi 6 into your home, especially with this Amazon price cut.

• Madden NFL 23: $69 $39 @ Best Buy (opens in new tab)

Ready for some football? At these prices, you sure will be, as the venerable Madden football series is on sale at Best Buy. The retailer has lopped off $30 from the price of Madden NFL 23 for Xbox Series X (opens in new tab) and Series S, bringing the price down to $39.

Got the PS5? Don’t Fret. Best Buy has the same Madden NFL 23 for $39 (opens in new tab) deal for you, too.

Whether you have an Xbox or a PS5, you’ll want to move faster than Lamar Jackson scrambling through an opening in the offensive line. Best Buy’s website says the deal ends tomorrow (Nov. 6).

In our Madden NFL 23 review, we praised the game for its TV broadcast-like aesthetic and its fast loading times. Long-time fans will also appreciate the John Madden Legacy Game included in this year’s version.

It may not be the newest MacBook Air, but there’s still plenty to love about the MacBook Air M1. It packs fantastic battery life (over 14 hours on our battery test), excellent performance thanks to its M1 chip, and a gorgeous 13.3-inch Retina display. It’s now on sale for $799 at Amazon (opens in new tab)which is the cheapest price we’ve seen all year for this laptop.

Other highlights include the comfy Magic Keyboard and roomy trackpad. Note that Best Buy (opens in new tab) has it on sale for the same price.

The Fitbit Luxe is the fanciest fitness tracker we’ve tested. (Sorry, Apple Watch Hermes). That said, our love for the Luxe isn’t all shallow. In our Fitbit Luxe review, we named it one of the best Fitbits around. It’s kitted out with Fitbit’s Activity Zone Minutes, sleep tracking, stress management tools, and provides a 5-day battery life. Even better, you can snag one for $50 off right now at Best Buy.

Samsung Galaxy S22

If you’re looking for a killer deal on one of the best phones we’ve tested this year, Samsung is now offering its S22 for as little as $49 after trade-in. It features a 6.1-inch Dynamic AMOLED FHD+ display, Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 CPU, 8GB of RAM, and 128GB of storage. You also get a 40MP (f/2.2) front camera and three rear lenses that include a 50MP (f/1.8) main, 12MP (f/2.2) ultrawide, and a 10MP (f/2.4) 3x telephoto lens. Although it’s the least-expensive phone in Samsung’s current Galaxy S22 lineup, in our Galaxy S22 review we called it a solid step ahead for Samsung, with noteworthy improvements to the display and the camera.

Apple Watch SE 2022

The Apple Watch SE 2022 just got its first noteworthy price cut since its launch. Right now Amazon has the GPS 44mm model on sale for $239. That’s $40 off and the best deal you’ll find out there right now. In our Apple Watch SE 2022 review, we said it offers everything you could want from a smartwatch. It’s only con — it lacks an always on-display. For more sales on other Apple Watch models, make sure to follow our Apple Watch Black Friday deals page.

Dell G15 gaming laptop with a Tom's Guide deal tag

Here’s a solid deal for any casual gamers out there. Dell has its G15 Gaming Laptop on sale for $599. It’s $350 off and a great price for the hardware. You get a 15.6-inch 1080p 120Hz LCD, Core i5-12500H CPU, 8GB of RAM, 256GB SSD, and an RTX 3050 GPU. Although we haven’t reviewed this specific model, we have reviewed other G15 configs and have generally found them to be reliable/affordable gaming laptops. Heads up that the Dell website says this laptop deal is 69% claimed, which means it could sell out fast.

Streaming devices make for a great holiday gift. Even if you already own a smart TV, the right streaming device can make your viewing experience much more pleasurable. Right now Best Buy is slashing the price of various streaming devices from Roku, Amazon, Google, and Apple. Not sure which one to get? I personally own the Roku Streaming Stick 4K and absolutely love it. It’s also the overall winner in our list of the best streaming devices.

Just a heads up — the Apple TV 4K is about $10 cheaper at Amazon. Amazon has it for $99 (opens in new tab)whereas Best Buy has it for $109 (opens in new tab).

Nectar duvet

There are a lot of great deals today, but for non-tech items — this might be my favorite. Nectar is taking 33% off sitewide right now. The sale includes the excellent Nectar duvet. I love my Nectar duvet. I bought it a few years ago and since then have purchased a second one. It’s super-soft and made of breathable cotton that keeps you warm during the winter and cool during the summer. The duvet also holds a spot in our list of the best duvets. Right now you can get the twin for $100 (was $149) or the queen for $120 (was $179).

Sony WH-1000XM4 deal

They’re no longer Sony’s flagship ‘phones, but the WH-1000XM4 are still among the best headphones you can buy. In our Sony WH-1000XM4 review, we described the headphones as “Sony’s best pair of noise-cancelling headphones yet” and called them “a fine-tuned enhancement that stands out as the best in the series, and even beats the best-in -class Bose 700 in some key areas.” We especially loved the excellent audio, remarkable noise cancellation, intuitive smart controls, and the superb battery life of around 30 hours (with Active Noise Cancellation enabled). They’re not at their lowest price ever.

iPad Pro 11 2022

Well, well, look at what we have here. Amazon is officially the first retailer to offer a noteworthy price drop on the new 11-inch iPad Pro (2022). It’s on sale for $749, which is $50 off. The updated tablet features Apple’s mighty M2 CPU. Apple claims the new chipset’s 8-core CPU and 10-core GPU are up to 15% and 35% faster than the previous-gen model. Otherwise, you get the same hardware as its predecessor. That includes an 11-inch 2388 x 1668 Liquid Retina XDR display with ProMotion, 8GB of RAM, 12MP wide/10MP ultrawide rear cameras, and a 12MP TrueDepth front camera.

Gaming laptops are usually a pretty pricey investment, but thanks to Black Friday deals you can get a machine sporting solid specs for less than you might expect. Case in point, this Gigabyte G5 gaming laptop is on sale for $549 at Best Buy (opens in new tab) — that’s a saving of $350 compared to its regular retail price of $999.

At this price, don’t expect a cutting-edge laptop, but it does packs a 15.6-inch Full HD screen, an Intel Core i5-11400H CPU, an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3050 Ti GPU, 8GB of RAM and 512GB of SSD storage . The laptop also sports a 144Hz refresh rate, which is a really nice bonus, and makes it a great pick for playing fast-paced shooters or action games. The G5’s specs are from 2021 but they still hold up extremely well.

Granted, the 512GB of storage is a little on the small size (but one of the best external hard drives will fix that) but otherwise this is reasonably powerful gaming laptop at an entry-level price.

LG OLED A2

The Black Friday sales period is often noted as the ideal time to score a TV upgrade, and if you’ve been considering one of the best OLEDs then you’ll want to pay attention to this Amazon deal.

Right now you can get the 55” LG A2 OLED 4K TV for $896 at Amazon (opens in new tab). That’s $403 off the usual price, and one of the best early Black Friday deals out there at the moment. Don’t let the fact Amazon hasn’t marked it as a deal fool you, this is definitely a killer discount.

There’s plenty to love about the LG A2. For starters, it’s an OLED TV that offers better picture quality than an LCD TV. Plus, this set comes with a 55-inch 4K display, complete with Dolby Vision, HDR10 and HLG support. It also packs Google Assistant and Alexa support, and LG’s webOS software is often considered one of the best smart TV platforms.

MacBook Pro 14 deal

One of our favorite early Black Friday deals is easily this MacBook discount courtesy of Best Buy. It’s been running for a few days now but remains extremely compelling. Right now the MacBook Pro 14-inch (M1 Pro/512GB) is just $1,599 at Best Buy (opens in new tab). That’s $400 off and ties the lowest price we’ve ever seen for this powerful laptop.

In our Apple MacBook Pro 14-inch (2021) review, we were seriously impressed by what this device had to offer. It has pretty much everything you could want in a laptop; including incredible performance, a beautiful 14-inch display and battery life that lasted over 14 hours in our tests.

If all that wasn’t enough it also packs an excellent 1080p webcam, a Magic Keyboard that is a dream to type on, and a fairly generous selection of ports, which is far from guaranteed when it comes to Apple laptops. Still no USB-A port though, but this can be fixed with use of a dongle or dock.
