Why Wait? 12 Black Friday Doorbusters You Can Buy NOW

Eager to start their sales, retailers have quietly kicked off the Black Friday shopping season with deals that match or undercut what's expected to come later this week.
Published

Black Friday week is here and that means you can expect spectacular deals to appear at any time. However, unlike Friday's doorbusters, many of this week's early deals will release without fanfare, and that's where we come in. We're shining a spotlight on the best Black Friday deals you can buy right now. As with all Black Friday deals, these items are likely to go fast, so catch 'em while you can! And check back later, as we'll be updating this page as more deals roll in.


  • Samsung Galaxy S5 16GB 4G LTE Android Smartphone for AT&T, Verizon, or Sprint for $1 at Best Buy
  • Sure, you could wait until later this week and get the phone for free, but is that extra buck really worth it? Take advantage of this sale now and get one of the hottest Android flagship phones of the year for almost free.

  • KitchenAid Classic Plus 4.5-Quart Stand Mixer bundled with $45 Kohl's Cash for $141.24 after $50 mail-in rebate at Kohl's
  • This deal comfortably beats our Black Friday prediction for KitchenAid mixers, and although there's a mail-in rebate involved, it's the best price we've ever seen on this mixer. Even better, it comes with a $45 Kohl's Cash credit. Just remember to add it to cart, activate coupon code "HOLIDAY15" during checkout, and send for that mail-in rebate to get the final price.

  • HP 11-2010nr Exynos 1.7GHz 11.6" Chromebook for $149.99 at Amazon
  • Chromebooks are enjoying a surge in sales and with prices like this, it's no surprise. Along with the Acer CB3, which Best Buy will sell for $149 later this week, the HP 11-2010nr Exynos is the cheapest Black Friday Chromebook deal we've ever seen. It features a Samsung Exynos 5250 1.7GHz dual-core processor, 11.6" 1366x768 LCD, 2GB RAM, 16GB flash storage, and Google's cloud-based Chrome OS.

  • Toshiba Satellite Intel Haswell Core i3 1.7GHz 15.6" Laptop for $279.99 at Staples
  • Don't want to deal with mail-in rebates or limited store quantities? Staples is currently offering this 15.6" Toshiba for just $280. Although we expect to see two Core i5-based machines for $300 on Black Friday, each of those deals will be in limited supply and/or involve a mail-in rebate. Although this machine houses a Core i3 processor, it's still an excellent deal at this price. It features an Intel Haswell Core i3-4005U 1.7GHz dual-core processor, 15.6" 1366 x 768 display, 4GB RAM, 500GB hard drive, and Windows 8.1

  • Samsung 50" 4K 2160p WiFi LED-Backlit LCD Ultra HD Television for $797.99 at Adorama
  • On Black Friday, shoppers will see a plethora of deals on name-brand 55" 4K HDTVs with prices starting at $899. However, here's a 4K HDTV deal you don't have to wait for. Adorama offers the 50" Samsung UN50HU6950FXZA for $798. That's the cheapest name-brand 50" 4K TV we've seen and $100 cheaper than cheapest 55" 4K TV you'll see on sale later this week.

  • The Limited 50% off sitewide with free shipping
  • Not since Black Friday 2013 have we seen this strong a sale from The Limited. Simply use coupon code "THANKS" to slash 50% off items sitewide, including sale items. A best bet is this Limited Women's Grid Print Top for $14.99 and this Limited Women's Embellished Party Dress for $84, both after coupon.

  • Beats by Dr. Dre Executive Over-Ear Headphones for $159.99 at Staples
  • Beats by Dre headphones were in a lot of Black Friday ads this year. And while that mostly included the Solo and Studio models, you can now get the Executive version of the 'phones at the lowest price we've ever seen.

  • Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4" 16GB Android Tablet for $199.99 at Best Buy
  • Best Buy featured this deal in its ad, and the store apparently released the price early for eager shoppers. It's $100 off list, $50 under our mention from last week, and the lowest total price we've seen for a new unit. It features a quad-core processor, 8.4" 1600x2560 touchscreen display, 16GB internal storage, 8-megapixel rear-facing camera with LED flash, 2-megapixel front camera, Bluetooth 4.0 LE, USB, Android 4.4 OS (Kit Kat), and more.

  • Roku Streaming Stick for $39.99 via coupon code "ROKUDEAL" at Best Buy
  • The Roku Stick will cost $40 at Best Buy, hhgregg, RadioShack, Staples, and Sams's Club on Black Friday, but for one day only, Best Buy's cutting the price early via the coupon above. With free shipping, it's tied with our mention from two weeks ago as the lowest price we've seen for a new unit, and a current price low by $9.

  • Panasonic AS530 55" 120Hz 1080p WiFi LED LCD Smart HDTV for $599.99 via coupon code "PANASONIC55DEAL" at Best Buy
  • Sure, cheap name-brand TVs will be a dime a dozen on Black Friday, but those in-demand doorbusters will definitely sell out quickly, even online. If you're not sure you'll be fast enough to score that Vizio 55" 1080p LED LCD HDTV for $478 from Amazon, then you can feel good about grabbing this Panasonic today. The coupon above drops this set's price to $100 below last week's mention, tying our all-time price low for a 55" Panasonic TV with these specs.

  • Pebble Smartwatch for iOS and Android for $79.99 via coupon code "PEBBLEDEAL" at Best Buy
  • Best Buy is the only retailer we've found that will be discounting the Pebble Smartwatch on Black Friday, so scoring this doorbuster early is just awesome. This one-day-only deal beats our previous mention by $20, and is a current low by $19.

  • Wii U Super Mario 3D World Bundle for $359.97 via coupon "WIIUDEAL" at Best Buy
  • This killer bundle will net you the 32GB console, Super Mario 3D World, Nintendoland, Super Smash Bros., and Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, at a $41 savings off of current prices. The coupon's only good for today, but that just means you'll score the biggest Wii U bundle of Black Friday two whole days early.

@einstein999 You can do that pretty easily. Every single ad is listed on our hub, by store OR by category. We also analyzed the ads by store, but the BEST deals from each store, as well as the best deals for any given category.

Moreover, if you come to the site on Thanksgiving and Black Friday, we are literally only listing the best deals, regardless of store. And they're almost all online, not in-store.

maybe, it makes sense for dealnews and it's advertisers to list ads store by store, it doesn't for me!
i don't shop by store or by ad, i want to buy the best product for the best price!
and i definitely won't fight the crowds instore for anything!
just put everything in a spreadsheet and let me search by product category and sort by price. done!

i was looking for a 4k 65+" tv, but i probably will be holding off until hdmi 2.0 next year...

happy obfuscated shopping everyone!

This is a doorbuster for Target stores. It is currently out of stock but you can still order this:

Complainers much? Not sure when this article was written (12 hours ago or more), but "Doorbusters" never last forever. If an item is no longer on sale, guess what, you missed it. That's not Dealnews' fault. Happy Shopping.

@dliidlii Are you referring to a deal in this roundup? We removed the link to the item that expired earlier and I checked again just now, everything is still active.
dliidlii
I know deals sell out fast but why does dealnews allow the links to continue to be active hours after it is no longer available. I have personally reported sold out deals but still seen the deal listed here several hours later.

dealnews-bglaser, I know this pain first hand. I can recall numerous times where I have reported an error of something being sold out. I understand though, deals sell out quickly and there's not much anyone can do about that.

@dliidlii Sometimes, especially with these amazing holiday doorbusters, inventory sells out in just moments after we post a link. Thank you for bringing this to our attention.
dliidlii
Your title is wrong. You can NOT buy the Nokia 635 phone now because it is already SOLD OUT!
dliidlii
The Nokia 635 is OUT OF STOCK so why bother to post the link!?
