Black Friday: deals and expectations

Black Friday: deals and expectations
The Black Friday shopping event may be over, but there's always next year – 2022. In the mean time, let's take a look at what Black Friday is all about, and the best deals still available.

Black Friday 2021: what were the best deals?


Just over a week before Black Friday 2021 Samsung released a number of great deals, including discounts on its most popular flagship smartphones and even its cutting-edge foldable ones, such as the Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galaxy Z Flip 3.

Those two were up to $800 and $1000 off in many stores, plus carriers such as AT&T (with trade-in), which also gave free Galaxy Buds 2 with each purchase. Samsung's more affordable phones, like the Galaxy A52 5G and A42 were also at least $100 off in stores and carriers.

Although Apple doesn't usually have Black Friday discounts on its products, iPhones like the iPhone 13 Pro Max were up to $1000 off at carriers such as AT&T and Verizon, with trade-in and an Unlimited plan. Best Buy, Walmart and Target all had iPhone deals, including the latest iPhone 13 models and older ones like the 2020 iPhone SE, which was $150 at Walmart with AT&T pre-paid.

Google's 2021 Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro were up to $800 off at carriers, with trade-in and a new plan. OnePlus phones like the OnePlus 9 and 9 Pro were included in Black Friday offers like $270 off at some carriers and $320 off at OnePlus' store, with included OnePlus Buds Pro no less. The OnePlus 8T with free Buds Z was $300 off at the company's store, while the Nord N100 and N200 5G were up to $90 off.

Motorola's 2020 razr flip phone with a flexible display could be found for up to $600 off at BestBuy, Amazon and Motorola's own website. The Motorola Edge (2021) was also $100 off at all three.

The Sony Xperia 1 III and Sony Xperia 5 II were both around $100 off on Amazon.

Are Black Friday 2021 deals still available?


Although Black Friday 2021 is over, there might still be available deals you can take advantage of. Stay tuned to PhoneArena.com for regular, daily single deals. Here's what's available right now:


Apple's third-gen AirPods are getting cheaper and cheaper in time for Christmas too. In addition, Samsung discounted every Galaxy Buds model. The folding Galaxy Z Flip 3 is just $349.99 at Samsung with a trade-in and a pair of Buds2 for free.

When is Black Friday 2022?



When do Black Friday deals start?


The next Black Friday event starts on November 25, 2022 – the day after Thanksgiving. But as always, many retailers will begin promoting the event days and even weeks prior to that day. Similarly, we'll have remaining discounts offered well into the following weekend past the day of the event, so we can consider November 27th as its unofficial ending.

Normally we can expect Black Friday deals to start up to two weeks before the actual event. Last year we saw Samsung launch a huge number of great early deals, and popular stores such as Target, BestBuy and Walmart followed shortly after. But of course, the top deals with the biggest price cuts will launch on the day of the Black Friday event – November 25.
