The best early Amazon Black Friday deals on TVs, headphones, and more
Nov. 10, 2021
If ever there was a good time to get an early-ish start on your holiday shopping, this is it. With supply chain issues rippling across retail outlets and delivery services already feeling the crush from increased volume, getting your gifts where they need to be will be tricky if you wait too long. Luckily, Black Friday deals don’t wait all the way until the day after Thanksgiving anymore. You can take advantage of a wide array of early Amazon Black Friday deals right now.
Of course, the deal velocity will pick up as we hit Thanksgiving and cruise through Amazon Cyber Monday deals, but it’s worth keeping an eye out all month to see what the online retail giant is offering at any given time.
Because the Amazon Black Friday 2021 deals are so numerous and spread out, we’re keeping a close eye on the best possible purchases. Some recommendations stem from super-low prices, while others are simply solid discounts on proven products that don’t typically go on sale.
Here are some of the current standouts, but be sure to check back regularly to see what’s new.
Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K streaming device $24 (Was $49)
Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K streaming device $24 (Was $49)
It’s a generation old, but you can’t beat the price.
Amazon is always eager to discount its own hardware, especially when it encourages you to buy movies, TV shows, and other media directly from its own apps. As a result, the 4K Fire TV Stick is just $25 right now. Despite its low price, the hardware actually has some fairly impressive specs, including HDR support and UHD streaming for all the popular apps you’d expect. For this price, you could keep one in your suitcase or travel bag so you can stream your own content at a hotel rather than watching on your laptop or flipping through the in-room cable looking for reruns of Everybody Loves Raymond.
Blue Yeti USB Microphone $99 (Was $150)
Blue Yeti microphone
A tried-and-true microphone to start your podcast or improve your video calls.
When the pandemic was in full swing, solid USB microphones were hard to come by. Now, Amazon has a solid deal on one of the best you’ll find. It’s super-easy to use and offers some advanced audio features including selectable recording patterns if you step up your recording knowledge. Maybe you want to sound better on Zoom calls or perhaps 2022 is finally the year you start your podcast about hunting for Big Foot. This mic can help either way.
Jabra Elite 85t True Wireless earbuds $149 (Was $229)
Jabra Elite 85T noise canceling earbuds
The active noise canceling gives them an advantage over other earbuds in this price range.
If you’re not looking to jump onto the AirPods train and you want a very solid pair of high-end wireless earbuds, the Jabra Elite 85T fits the bill. They offer active noise-canceling, like the AirPods Pro and the Jabras let you take control over their sound profile so you can tweak it to your own listening habits or audio preferences. This is a steep discount on one of the best pairs of wireless earbuds around.
Canon EOS R mirrorless camera $1,599 (Was $1,799)
Canon EOS R mirrorless camera
Canon’s pro-grade mirrorless camera is $200 off right now.
If you’re looking to make the jump into a fancy new camera for the holidays and new year, this is a great deal. It has a full-frame sensor inside, which is capable of capturing truly pro-grade images and video. Plus, with a simple adapter, it has access to Canon’s massive collection of autofocus lenses out there on the secondary market.
Samsung 32-inch 4K, 60 Hz monitor $349 (Was $399)
Samsung 32-inch 4K monitor
It has AMD Freesync, which also makes it great for gaming. Amazon
Samsung has really upped its monitor game in recent years. And while this isn/t the hugest discount, this display does check most of the boxes you want for a very useful screen. At 32 inches, it’s about as massive as your desk can handle. Plus, it has full 4K resolution and AMD’s Freesync technology, which matches your monitor’s performance to whatever video game you may be playing so things always look crisp and not wonky.

Q: When is Black Friday 2021?
Black Friday 2021 happens on November 26th. That said, the actual date isn’t nearly as important as it used to be. Black Friday is now more of a month-long deal and sale party, so keep an eye out for discounts coming from every direction from the moment Halloween ends until the bitter end of Cyber Monday.
Q: What is Black Friday?
Black Friday’s historical meaning traces back roughly half a century when it referred to a day full of heavy traffic and also the day in which businesses in the US started turning a profit for the year. It refers to the Friday after Thanksgiving. Most of that is irrelevant now, though, and Black Friday has become shorthand for the shopping frenzy that happens between the end of October and the beginning of December.
