Black Friday 2018: the top tech deals this fall

Update: Pre-Black Friday 2018 deals

Black Friday is one of the best times of the year to get great deals on tech, and it's finally here. We will be updating you on where the hottest sales can be found live on Friday 23rd November. But the action has already begun, with several outlets releasing pre-Black Friday deals. Here's the full round-up.

Black Friday 2018 Tech Deals

Cell phone carrier deals

Sprint

Sprint already has its Black Friday page up on its website, but the deals are not live yet. Last year, Sprint included some of the hottest phones of the year in its Black Friday sale, so we've got out fingers crossed for another bumper year. Stay tuned.

AT&T

AT&T's Black Friday deals weren't the most impressive last year, but it's still worth checking out the carrier to see if it raises the stakes in 2018. No deals have gone live yet, but we'll keep an eye on that Black Friday page and update you as soon as they do.

Verizon

Verizon's Black Friday deals begun online on Thursday and in-store on Friday last year. Nothing has gone live yet, but we'll be checking the page on Thursday 22nd to see if the same stunt is pulled again this year. Verizon also has a separate promo page up for its Cyber Monday deals - we'll keep you posted.

T-Mobile

A couple of years ago, T-Mobile gave away free flagship smartphones for Black Friday. This year, the deals page is up, but there are not special Black Friday offers online yet. We'll watch this space and let you know if something exciting happens.

US Cellular

US Cellular is yet to put up a dedicated Black Friday deals page but we expect its regular promo page to be updated shortly.

Smartphone manufacturers' deals

Google

Google has announced its Black Friday deals and it doesn't look like they'll be discounting their flagship Pixel 3 and 3XL phones outright. However, if you buy a new Pixel 3 or 3 XL between November 16 and November 21, you can get another one for 50% off... in case you want both sizes, I guess.

There's still a lot to get excited about when it comes to the rest of the Google tech ecosystem. The deals are available from 18 November.

Deals available between November 18 and November 28:

Samsung

Black Friday is almost here, and Samsung's impressive smartphone and tablet savings have already been announced. Plus, some of Samsung's other products have been discounted heavily, too.

Televisions:

Smartphones and tablets:

Wearables:

Laptops and Chromebooks:

Huawei

A retailer in the UK has announced a couple of Black Friday deals for Huawei fans in Great Britain.

OnePlus

OnePlus doesn't play the Black Friday game. Last year it ran a campaign with the hashtag #NoGames to highlight how the company is committed to offering tech at the best prices all year round. It is kind of a refreshing approach not to get sucked into the crazy buying fest, but it means that you are unlikely to see any special deals from the Chinese manufacturer this fall.

Amazon Prime

For those of you who want a seamless, one-stop shopping experience, there's always Amazon. I highly recommend investing in an Amazon Prime membership for the early Black Friday notifications and benefits like two-day free shipping. Plus, you get video and music streaming access. It's only $12.99 per month.

Retailers

Amazon

Amazon is running Black Friday deals already, with offers changing day-to-day. Perhaps predictably, some of the better deals are on its own devices. We will update this page with offers as and when they come, especially on November 24. For now, the best way to check the time-limited deals is to click the link and see what is live at the time of reading.

Best Buy 

Best Buy is sure to have has some great deals on smartphones this year. There already are some deals on the latest iPhones such as the XS, XS Max and XR with discounts of up to $200. You can also save $200 on a new LG V40. Stay tuned for even more deals from BestBuy closer to Black Friday.

Walmart

Walmart's smartphone deals for Black Friday usually don't disappoint either. You can already see a trickle of online deals cropping up, but the best ones will be in stores on Black Friday itself.

Target

Target's Black Friday ad has been released, so it's time to start planning your Christmas shopping now. Early access deals start on November 21 at for customers who hold a REDcard. There's offerings of up to $250 off of the last-gen iPads, amongst other tech deals.

Microsoft

Microsoft is also getting into the holiday spirit, announcing its Black Friday deals already. Amongst the offers, there are a load of Surface Pro 6 bundles with saving up to $350 on a Surface Pro 6 with an Intel i5 and 256GB SSD complete with a black type cover. There's also $300 off the Surface Laptop 2 and saving of up to $50 on the entry-level Surface Go tablet. The deals will be available from Nobember 18.

    Absolutely hate Black Friday, it's concept is abhorrent. It's purely a capitalist con, if you are looking to buy a specific product then you might be lucky and get a good deal, but that's not the way they want us to shop.
    Amazon for example will have lots of deals but 90% is stock they have been unable to sell throughout the year. They hope that you will see a reduction and buy, regardless if you actually need the item.

    For the vast majority of customers will end up skint with piles of unwanted goods, Yes as I mentioned if you have specific items and have the time & patience to research and find good deals, then BF can be a great opportunity for a bargain. Just be aware that they want you to "believe" your getting a good deal.

    Also depending on how much we buy, it's most likely that there will be further reductions.

    Peace 🖖


  • I don't know of any audiophile that use "Beats"


  • Tech=Phone to this website. I guess tablets are not relevant


  • Black Friday is a great day where you can find all sorts of deals for you on YouTube and see what other people get on Black Friday and $89 consul for $20 and that is pretty sweet you know and on so just hit up your local target Walmart King supers and everything so yeah Black Friday rocks


  • Let's all keep a lookout for the iPhone 6s on sale I think we could get a pretty good one and you can sell it to places like game night on Amazon and get up to twice as much is you paid for it
