Galaxy Watch 4 for just $149 is a steal this Black Friday


 
We had to check this one twice to make sure it's not a typo. Fortunately, the Galaxy Watch 4 Classic is indeed $200 cheaper at Walmart, and at $149, it could be a great addition to your Samsung ecosystem. Sure, it may not be the latest model, but the Watch 4 Classic is still relevant and capable enough to grace your wrist.

Apple AirPods 3rd generation are just $139 at Walmart



The recently announced Apple AirPods (3rd-generation) are generously discounted at Walmart, and the $139.99 price is one of the best right now. No wonder Walmart has labeled this deal as a best seller. Note that the deal is on the standard AirPods, with Spatial Audio and MagSafe charging case -- but no active noise cancellation. To see your ANC-capable options, check out our Black Friday headphones deals article.

Apple Pencil and Pencil 2 are $20 and $40 cheaper!



Sure, we know that a $20 or $40 discount doesn't seem like that big of a deal; however, we though we'd share this offer since a discount on the Apple Pencil is a rare event in general. As of this writing, both Apple Pencil models are identically priced on Amazon, Best Buy, or Walmart, so pick whichever retailer you like the most. And while you're at it, consider taking a look at the best iPad deals this Black Friday

Renewed iPhone 11 Pro for cheap!


Apple is well-known for supporting its iPhones long after release, which is why we still have no trouble recommending an older iPhone 11. It's not compatible with MagSafe and it doesn't have the latest developments in camera tech. But it's still a very solid phone that will deliver that Apple experience. And, at $373, we'd say it's better to buy an iPhone 11 Pro than an iPhone SE.

Preslav Kateliev

Massive Sony Bravia 55" discount



Sony's Bravia TVs are revered for their excellent screens and features — some of the best home entertainment equipment out there. This best-seller here is now almost half-off!

Preslav Kateliev

Sennheiser Momentum: excellent wireless headphones at half off!



Sennheiser makes excellent audio equipment, so it's no surprise it threw its hat in the premium wireless headphone ring. And it did so with a splash — the Momentum series are beloved and coveted. There is a Momentum 4 model out now, but the previous generation is still fantastic, and now relatively cheap to get a hold of!

iPhone deals are not super plentiful on Black Friday, but here is one that’s actually good. The iPhone 13 mini is sold at just $629, a full $70 buckaroos off the official price, but there is a catch: it will only work with the new Total by Verizon carrier in the US.

OnePlus 9 Pro is a surprisingly great BF deal





The OnePlus 9 Pro is the phone that ushered OnePlus into the “Hasselblad” era, and while it did not quite live up to sky high expectations, it remains an incredibly solid smartphone overall. Add the benefit of super fast charging that no other mainstream phone has, a large and precisely calibrated OLED display, and the typical buttery smooth OnePlus interface, and you are in for a treat. A much cheaper treat this Black Friday.
