Welcome to our early Black Friday deals live blog
Hey there! Thanks for joining us for our live coverage of all the best early Black Friday deals that are happening right now.
What’s that? It’s only November 1? True, but early sales are already underway at a number of major retailers and I’ve seen lots of fantastic deals that I recommend buying if you’re ready to shop today. There are record-low prices on top OLED TVs, excellent value Nintendo Switch bundles, big discounts on Apple tech, and much more.
I’ll share all of these best early Black Friday deals right here so you can snap up a bargain as we get into the year’s biggest shopping season. We’ll also have insights and advice from the full TechRadar team of experts to give you their top buying tips and product recommendations for this year’s Black Friday.
Let’s start with a popular sales season classic
There’s definitely no need to wait around if you plan to pick up one of Amazon’s popular streaming devices this Black Friday as the Fire TV Stick is slashed to its cheapest price ever for non-Prime members right now.
I recommend this as a simple and affordable way to stream video in high definition on any TV with an HDMI port.
In fact, that’s exactly what we said in our Amazon Fire TV Stick review, too. It’s solid, capable, has a decent interface and a great range of app support – even though it’s missing the ultra-high definition 4K support of the more powerful streaming sticks. The accessibility features were handy, too, including voice controls to make navigation easier and connect with other smart home devices.

A top OLED TV for a record-low price
The LG C2 OLED has been one of our best-rated TVs for a long time now and Walmart has the 65-inch model on sale for $1,399. That’s a new record-low price and makes it one of the best early Black Friday deals I’ve spotted so far.
The stunning display is praised for its intense brightness and vivid colors in our LG C2 OLED review. The 65-inch TV also packs an a9 Gen5 AI Processor, Dolby Atmos, and voice control – all for under $1,400, which is an incredible value for this highly-rated OLED TV.

New M3 chip is here? Doesn’t matter. Matt Hanson still recommends the MacBook Air M1
He spent most of the October Prime Day telling us why the MacBook Air M1 was such a good buy. And now’s he’s at it again in the early Black Friday sales. Even though the new M3 chip is coming to the latest MacBook Pro models, our managing editor of computing still believe the MacBook Air M1 is a fantastic and powerful all-around laptop at this record-low price.
“Although it was first released three years ago, it’s still a brilliant laptop, offering excellent performance in a thin and light body,” he says. “And, with this discount, it’s now better value than ever.”
