The Top Best Buy Black Friday Deals in 2023 to Shop Now

TCL 55" QLED 4K UHD smart Google TV for $229.99: This is an incredible deal on a 55" smart TV as well as the best price we've seen for a TCL 4K 55" set since last Black Friday. Check to see if it's available at your local Best Buy.

Insignia 55" LED 4K UHD smart Fire TV for $229.99: This is another 55" set at a great price that's perfect for those looking for an alternative to a Google smart TV.

Apple iPad (9th Gen) 10.2" WiFi 64GB for $249.99: This is the previous-generation iPad, but it's still an $80 savings and a great deal in general. It's available in two colors: Silver and Space Gray.

Apple iPad (10th Gen) 10.9" WiFi 64GB for $349: This is the latest version of this iPad and available in four different colors at this price. It's $100 off and once again the best price we've seen for this model.

Insignia 32" LED HD smart Fire TV for $79.99: This is a smaller set, but it's still a smart TV and one of the classic examples of the rock-bottom prices we see for Black Friday. This offer once again brings it to the lowest price we've seen.

KitchenAid 5.5-Quart Bowl-Lift Stand Mixer for $249.99: Home bakers know how much easier a KitchenAid stand mixer can make tackling certain projects. This deal takes $200 off and provides a more professional setup with a bowl lift instead of the tilt-head functionality, plus a bigger capacity than the standard 4.5-quart model, so you can handle more cookie and bread doughs in one batch.

Select LEGO Kits for up to 30% off: If you enjoy building LEGO sets, or need to buy some for gifts, this is a great offer to check out. Choose from a pretty extensive selection of LEGO kits, including the Icons Wildflower Bouquet, Disney-themed sets, Star Wars-themed sets, and much more.

What to Expect From Best Buy Black Friday Deals in 2023

We're expecting the Best Buy Black Friday ad to be released no later than November 13 in 2023. Best Buy began offering Black Friday deals for all on October 30, with the "real" Black Friday sale scheduled to begin on November 17. Because of that, we're expecting an ad drop no later than November 13, but we could see one much sooner.

The Black Friday sale at Best Buy will start on November 17 in 2023, but early Black Friday deals are already available.

Most retailers tend to release their Black Friday ads during the same time frame year after year, but Best Buy hasn't for a few years now. In 2019, the Best Buy ad dropped on November 7, but in 2020 it appeared on October 29, and in 2021 we saw it on November 19. Last year the retailer dropped its ad on November 20.

Best Buy started rolling out early Black Friday deals for its My Best Buy Plus and Total members on October 27. Offers were available to everyone beginning October 30, but the actual Black Friday sale isn't slated to start until November 17.

Here's a quick rundown of Best Buy's 2023 Black Friday calendar for reference:

  • October 27-29: My Best Buy Plus and Total members can shop early Black Friday deals
  • October 30-November 16: Early Black Friday deals are available for everyone to shop
  • November 17-25: Best Buy hosts its Black Friday sale
  • November 26-27: Best Buy holds its Cyber Monday sale

Best Buy stores won't be open on Thanksgiving Day in 2023, but you can still shop online and through the Best Buy app. With the sale starting a week before Black Friday and plenty to shop online, you can check items off your list long before you sit down for your Thanksgiving feast.

The best time to shop at Best Buy for Black Friday deals is going to depend on what kinds of items are on your list. That said, with early deals already being available, it's worth checking out the offers as soon as you can, rather than waiting for Black Friday itself.

The retailer started its Black Friday sale early in 2022 and noted that items were in limited quantities, with no rain checks available. (You can see all of Best Buy's Black Friday FAQs here.) That meant that once they were gone, there was no guarantee they'd be back for the actual Black Friday holiday. So if there's a particularly popular item you want, it's better to shop sooner rather than risk missing out.

Of course, even if you don't want to shop for the holidays early — as in right now — it's still a good idea to start your shopping as soon as Best Buy's Black Friday sale goes live on November 17.

While Best Buy will have a ton of offers available to shop for Black Friday, don't expect everything the store carries to be on sale. Some discounts will likely be more modest than others, as well. But that doesn't mean you should skip the electronics retailer. Some of the most notable deals we saw last year included the following:

  • Amazon smart home devices from $14.99
  • Up to 50% off select Google smart home items
  • Up to $100 off select smartwatches and fitness trackers
  • $200 off select KitchenAid stand mixers
  • Up to $400 off select Traeger grills
  • Up to $500 off select laptops

While Best Buy hasn't released its Black Friday ad for 2023 yet, we can take a look at the top deals from last year to get an idea of what to expect. Along with the notable offers from the preceding section, check out these Best Buy highlights from Black Friday 2022:

  • Samsung Galaxy Buds2 True Wireless Earbuds for $89.99: This was a great deal on highly rated earbuds that best the best price we'd seen at the time by $10.

  • Lenovo Flex 3 Chromebook 11.6" HD Touchscreen Laptop for $99: This offer matched our Chromebook predictions from last year exactly, and was at the best price we'd seen. Even with inflation woes, we're still expecting to see Chromebooks to cost as little as $79 this year. (See more of what we expect from Black Friday laptop deals in 2023 here.)

  • Beats Studio3 Wireless Headphones for $149.99: This was a great deal in general and it matched Target's offer, as well. It's no longer available, but we're almost certain to see similar deals when Best Buy's Black Friday deals begin.

  • TCL 55" Class 5-Series QLED 4K UHD Smart Google TV for $199.99: This was the best price we'd seen for this model, and it was $50 cheaper than any TV deal in this size class we saw from the previous Black Friday. While this TV doesn't appear to be available anymore at Best Buy, there's a good chance we'll see a similar offer this year.

  • HP Victus 15.6" GTX 1650 Gaming Laptop for $479.99: This offer beat our gaming laptop prediction for last year by $120, and it matched the best price we'd ever seen. At the time of publication, this model was $639.99 on clearance. So if you hold off, it may drop for Black Friday 2023.

  • Samsung 75" Class TU690T Series LED 4K Smart TV for $579.99: This was a strong deal on a name-brand set of this size, and it matched the best-ever price we'd seen. Plus, it was about half the average price we saw for this size class during Black Friday 2021. The model was also available at the time of publication for $579.99, as an early Best Buy Black Friday deal.

  • Unlocked Samsung Galaxy S22 Series for up to $1,200 off: This deal was best when redeemed with in-store trade-in offers, which provided the biggest discount we'd seen on this phone at the time.

Even though Best Buy rolled out early Black Friday deals on October 27, we don't have their Black Friday ad yet to know what kinds of discounts we'll see in 2023. But we can still make predictions based on what they offered up last year!

Best Buy Black Friday TV Deals Will Start at $80

Best Buy's Black Friday TV deals can border on epic at times due to the sheer volume of offers, as well as the wide range of prices to suit every budget. Last year some of the best Black Friday TV deals we saw included an Insignia 24" LED HD smart TV for $79.99, and a Hisense 40" LED Full HD smart Vidaa TV for $99.99.

Expect Black Friday TV deals at Best Buy to feature brands like Samsung and TCL.

Need a bigger set? We also saw a TCL 55" QLED 4K UHD smart Google TV for $199.99, a Samsung 60" LED 4K UHD smart Tizen TV for $399.99, and another Samsung TV; this one was 75" LED 4K UHD smart Tizen TV for $579.99.

Best Buy Black Friday Laptop Deals Will Take Hundreds Off

Laptops are another category we expect Best Buy to dominate when it comes to the best Black Friday deals in 2023. Whether you're looking for a super-affordable Chromebook, a high-end gaming rig, or something in between, there's a good chance Best Buy will have you and your budget covered.

Last year, the retailer offered general sales that included up to $500 off select Windows laptops, up to $500 off select gaming laptops, and up to $300 off select Surface devices.

In 2022, some outstanding Black Friday laptop deals at Best Buy included the following:

  • Lenovo Flex 3 Chromebook 11.6" Laptop for $99
  • Lenovo IdeaPad 15.6" HD Touch Laptop for $299.99
  • HP Victus 15.6" Gaming Laptop for $479.99
  • ASUS Zenbook 15.6" Laptop for $499.99
  • HP ENVY x360 2-in-1 15.6" Touch-Screen Laptop for $499.99
  • Samsung GalaxyBook2 Pro 360 2-in-1 15.6" Laptop for $1,149.99

Best Buy Black Friday Cell Phone Deals Will Feature Apple and Samsung Devices

If you're looking for a new cell phone — smart or otherwise — there's a good chance Best Buy deals will have you covered during Black Friday. Watch for some of the best smartphone offers of the season to be available at the retailer, including 5% off the newest Apple iPhone right upfront, plus with additional savings of up to $1,000 off.

Interested in an Android? Look for massive savings on the latest Samsung flagship. Last year, Best Buy knocked up to $1,200 off unlocked Samsung Galaxy S22 Series phones. These are likely the kinds of offers we'll see return in 2023. Be on the lookout for Best Buy to have affordable lower-tech options, as well.

Doorbusters may look different than they did pre-pandemic, but they're still here and likely here to stay. We may not see "doorbuster" language as much anymore, but the deals are still limited edition, and occasionally we may see an in-store-only offer.

Top candidates for Best Buy Black Friday doorbusters are going to be super-low prices on TVs and laptops, though freebies or bundles could qualify for doorbuster status, as well. When perusing the Best Buy Black Friday ad, read the fine print to know if any of your top picks have limited time frames or availability.

Best Buy sort of offers price matching during Black Friday, but with caveats. Best Buy's Holiday Price Match Guarantee states that "if our price goes lower during the holiday season, we'll match it." That seems to suggest you must purchase something at Best Buy and it has to drop in price at Best Buy to be eligible for a price match.

The fine print explains further that exclusions apply, including matching competitors' prices from the Friday before Thanksgiving to the Monday following Thanksgiving. The affected dates are November 17, when Best Buy's sale begins, to November 27, which is Cyber Monday.

My Best Buy members can get additional discounts at the retailer. For example, Plus and Total members can score exclusive Best Buy member deals like a $50 certificate when they spend at least $500 in October. Also, paid My Best Buy members can get the earliest access to Best Buy Black Friday deals. As we noted above, Plus and Total members received early access to certain Best Buy Black Friday deals from October 27-29 in 2023.

So what do these My Best Buy programs cost? Plus memberships are $49.99 per year, while Total memberships cost $179.99 per year.

Follow the retailer on social media. Pick your favorite platform and follow Best Buy's official accounts for the latest info on Black Friday deals.

Sign up for newsletters. This is another way to ensure you won't miss the start of the sale or short-lived offers that are prone to selling out quickly. Check for the email sign-up box at the bottom of Best Buy's homepage.

Download the Best Buy app. Downloading the Best Buy app can help you stay in the loop on the best deals. Best Buy has also started offering Best Buy Drops, which are app-exclusive offers. You can navigate to the Drops section in the app, look for the upcoming Drops, and opt in to Drops alerts. Then before one of the Drops goes live, you'll receive a push notification and can jump on it before it sells out.

Best Buy has already stated in their holiday calendar that their Cyber Monday deals will begin the day before the holiday itself. There aren't details on what time those deals will start, but we know they'll be valid November 26-27 and will feature savings of up to 50% off top gifts.

Consider getting a paid My Best Buy membership to ensure early access to the most popular upcoming deals.

Expect Best Buy to keep the wide variety of deals from Black Friday rolling right through Cyber Monday. For example, some of the most notable Cyber Monday offers we saw last year included the following:

  • LG 50" LED 4K UHD smart webOS TV for $299.99
  • Samsung 70" LED 4K UHD smart Tizen TV for $549.99
  • $50 off all Apple Watch Series 8 models
  • Up to $400 off unlocked Google Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro phones
  • Up to $800 off iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus phones
Note that the electronics from Apple and Google were current-generation devices during the sale last year. That means there's a good chance we could see similar offers return for Black Friday 2023 for the latest and greatest tech.
