It used to be that Black Friday deals were only available on Friday, but now it’s turned into a month-long event that seems to get bigger and bigger each year. While some of the best deals may only be available on Black Friday, and door buster offerings may start as early as the evening of Thanksgiving Day, that doesn’t mean that you can’t already score some pretty wild deals right this very minute.


Retailers are trying to maximize exposure during this time of the year, which means that select items are going on sale ahead of the big day. You may be wondering if the prices will drop lower on Black Friday, or if it’s worth shopping early, so let’s answer some of your questions, and show you some of the best deals. We are currently just 14 days away from Black Friday, so it’s time to get serious here.

Ahead of the big Black Friday push, Amazon has discounted its own Music Unlimited streaming service. You can get four months of access, which includes millions of songs that you can access anywhere using an app on your phone or tablet, for just $1. This saves you about $39 compared to the regular price, and makes it a no-brainer choice. It’s 25 cents a month, how can you pass that up?

Mint Mobile

Mint Mobile has already kicked off its Black Friday promotion, and it’s one of the best carrier deals we will see this month. The carrier is offering 12GB of data for just $15 a month, but you need to prepay for 3 months. That means you pay $45 to get three months of service, after which it renews at regular pricing.

Black Friday is sure to bring lots of deals to the AirPods lineup, but one of the best is here right now. The recently-released AirPods Pro are already discounted at Amazon, which is a bit rare. We don’t see many discounts on new Apple products, but that’s not stopping these from being on sale. There is a shipping delay to make note of, though it’s likely that Amazon will have stock available earlier than what’s advertised.

IPVanish VPN Subscription

Things are not what they used to be, and unfortunately not everyone can be trusted. Whether you’re browsing from home or at a cafe, doing it on an unsecured connection can be dangerous. VPNs have become more popular in the recent years, and there’s a good reason for it. IPVanish is one of our favorite services, and thanks to its Black Friday pricing you can get protected for as little as $3.25 a month when you redeem coupon code CYBERDEAL19.

Should you shop pre-Black Friday deals?

The answer here is not cut and dry, but in most cases we would say yes. You should absolutely already be shopping sales, and picking up things as you see them on sale. Many retailers have already dropped the Black Friday sale ads, so you can easily compare the pricing listed there to what it’s available for right now. If the prices match, click buy now. There is no benefit to waiting for Black Friday and risking the item selling out or forgetting to purchase it, and being stuck then paying full price.

Will Black Friday bring lower prices?

You may or may not find lower pricing than you see right now on Black Friday itself. Retailers don’t show off every single item that will be available at a discount and list the price ahead of the event, unfortunately, which means you have to take a risk. You’ll need to weigh your options when shopping for some stuff, but keep in mind that making the purchase now is likely less stressful, and you won’t have to worry about it selling out before you complete the transaction or missing out on the price you see.

Where should you look for Black Friday deals?

When it comes to Black Friday, just about everyone under the sun will be offering discounts. If you want to keep your searches under control, we’d recommend keeping an eye on Amazon’s Black Friday offerings, along with deals at Best Buy and don’t forget to check out Walmart during your pricing comparisons. These retailers offer a wide variety of product assortment, and will honestly all probably be price matching eachother during the lead up to Black Friday and on the big day.
