Best Buy Has Great Black Friday Deals on TVs, Apple Products and More
Like many retailers, Best Buy is already rolling out some pre-holiday discounts, but the real deals are what the electronics giant has in store for Black Friday.
These deals are available at Best Buy stores — some are available only in-store — when Best Buy opens at 5 p.m. on Thanksgiving evening, and most are available online as well.
Since Black Friday is less than two weeks away, Money went through Best Buy's deals to help you plan your tech-buying strategy for the holiday season. Here are some of the deeper discounts and bigger doorbuster deals at Best Buy.
Black Friday deals on TVs
This is a big year for TVs, with deep markdowns on both entry-level (maybe for your kid's bedroom or dorm?) as well as top-of-the-line TVs with all the bells and whistles. TVs, especially larger sizes, are a hot point of competition for many retailers, which is why you'll find that some of Best Buy's cheapest doorbuster prices are only available in the store.

Black Friday deals on Apple products
Apple products rarely go on sale outside of the company discounting older models to make way for newer versions, so fans of the brand will want to make note of these discounts.
