The Only 21 Black Friday Tech Deals Worth Knowing About

We’re big believers that tech products can be powerful self-care tools, from noise-cancelling headphones that help maintain the peace with roommates and partners in quarantine, to fitness machines that break up a mundane work-from-routine (and keep you moving at home). As shopping holidays go, Black Friday is one of the best times to scoop up that tech device you’ve been eyeing all year, for way less. 

The best Black Friday tech deals this year extend to Dyson vacuums, treadmills, laptops, and fitness recovery devices. And now that you’ve (hopefully) recovered from any post-Turkey drowsiness, you can focus on narrowing down your shopping list. We’ve taken a look at everything that will be on sale this year, and hope to take the stress out of navigating the deluge of deals this year by curating a selection of our favorite sales going on below (as well as what we think you should focus on shopping from each). 

Speaking of treadmills, we’ve rounded up the best treadmill deals going on now. And while you’re at it, don’t forget to check out our curated roundups of the best beauty, clothing, bedding, wellness, and home deals, too.


You don’t even have to set foot in a Walmart this year to partake in early bird deals: Right now, you can score an HD Smart TV or smart treadmill for less than $400, along with a bevy of other deals on Macbooks, Nintendo Switch accessories, and more.

If you missed out on any Amazon Prime Day deals, a couple of the best ones are cropping back up, like this deal on the trainer-beloved Beats Powerbeats Pro and the crème de la crème of smart toothbrushes, the Philips Sonicare Diamondclean.

Nordstrom’s Black Friday sale is one of the best if you’re looking for range: Somewhere to secure a Staub cookware deal, while layering up for winter, while also buying a fancy set of Kiehl’s skincare for yourself. The sale started last week, which means the ship has already sailed on some Theragun and Dyson steals, but you can still cash in on some discounted Bose audio products, like this stellar pair of noise-cancelling headphones (which I got recently and love), plus percussive massagers from Hyperice.

Hypervolt Bluetooth Percussion Massage Device


People wait all year long to find steals on Dyson vacuums, and now’s your chance to get in on one: Stick vacuums like the V10 and V8 (a favorite of pet parents for how well it cleans up hair and dust) are up to $200 off at the site between now and December 28. Though the brand’s bestselling hair tools sadly aren’t included, you can score free gifts (valued up to $50) when you purchase either the Dyson Airwrap, Supersonic hair dryer, or Corrale hair straightener.

If you were planning to shop Apple products today anyways, huzzah: You can score a $150 Apple Store gift card on select purchases. 

Best Buy 

If you’re not shopping directly from Apple’s Black Friday sale, another great place to find Apple deals is Best Buy. Today, you can save up to $250 on Apple’s MacBook Pro, up to $150 on the iPad Pro, plus score the new iPhone SE for as low as $200. 

For Samsung fans, we’d also recommend Best Buy’s deal on the Galaxy S20 5G and Note20 5G series: Save up to $750 with qualified activation and trade-in.

Target’s Black Friday deals, spanning pretty much every category, have been going strong all month long, and here are two that we’d suggest looking into before the end of Cyber Week. 

Dyson Slim Ball Animal Upright Vacuum


In case you missed it, there’s still time to get in on the big sale Therabody is having on all their beloved Theragun percussive massage tools and TheraOne CBD products between now and December 1. 

Theragun Mini

Here’s a handheld, pocket-sized device that’s extra portable for soothing on-the-go.

Theragun Elite

This handheld percussive therapy device uses amplitude (depth), frequency (speed), and torque (force) to reach deep into your muscles to increase blood flow and decrease soreness and stiffness. It helped me move better after tough workouts, and also released tension in my shoulders after leaning over a laptop all day.


Jaybird’s sweat-resistant, Bluetooth-enhanced Vista headphones are a favorite among SELF editors for workouts (and even won a Fitness Award in 2019), so we feel compelled to let everyone know that they’re $80 off during Cyber Week. 

Jaybird Vista Earbuds

Wireless, waterproof, and sweatproof earbuds, perfect for all weather and workouts.


Sonos’s sleek home audio products (from discreet wall speakers, to non-intrusive soundbars) are investments, but to sweeten the deal, the brand is having an up to $100 off sale on its bestsellers for Black Friday. 


Google is offering a range of great deals on its line of products, from $50 off its smart thermostat, The Nest, to $200 off the new Google Pixel 5. For anyone working from home, we’d suggest you take a look at their $80 off deal on the Google Nest WiFi router and point, too. 


We’re big fans of Fitbit here at SELF, and given their popularity, we probably don’t need to sell you on them. In case you’re shopping for a new one though (or just dipping in a toe), our fitness editor recently recommended their new Fitbit Sense, which is just one of the many fitness trackers that’s up to $50 off for Cyber Week.

The Fitbit Sense does everything you’d want a fitness tracker to do, and comes in clutch on the smartwatch side, too. Plus, it offers tons of other metrics, like your breathing rate, heart rate variability, skin temperature, and oxygen saturation levels.

Bed Bath & Beyond

Bed Bath & Beyond loves a coupon deal, and now through December, you have many opportunities to save between a bunch of store clearance items, a 20% off offer on your entire purchase, plus 25% off your purchase with curbside and store pickup—though if you can avoid it, we’d recommend sitting out any in-store purchases. Oh, and shipping is also free for orders over $19 (the bar is low!) To start you off: We’ve never seen the Shark Rocket stick vacuum this cheap before.

Kohl’s is no stranger to bargain buys, and this Black Friday the retailer is slashing prices on tech devices from Beats, Google, Garmin, and more—we spotted the SELF-approved Beats Powerbeats Pro and Google Nest Learning Thermostat in the sale section, for starters, at $200 apiece. Buy some headphones, a smart thermostat to help you save some money, and even a smartwatch while you’re at it.

Anyone looking for relaxing gifts or splurging on some home tech can take up to 40% off HoMedics’s air purifiers, humidifers, UV sanitizers, massagers and more, at the brand’s Cyber Week sale.


We’ve said it once before, and we’ll say it again: Don’t sleep on the sale at Macy’s if you’re hunting for real bargains. Among a bevy of clothing, kitchen, and luxury beauty deals, you can also find excellent markdowns on tech items, from Shark vacuums to the SELF-approved Fitbit Charge 4


Save up to 50% off at Bose’s Black Friday sale, which extends to its best-selling soundbars, smart sunglasses, speakers, and headphones. 


Garmin’s fitness watches have all the bells and whistles that serious athletes need to train, map their route, and precisely track their activities (whether underwater or on land), and right now the brand is having a flash sale on its watches, GPS systems, and more. Garmin’s Forerunner 235 is one of the brand’s most popular entry-level options, while the Fenix 6S provides more fine-tuned features for runners, including stats on how your body is adjusting to training at higher altitude.
