We already know why you’re here: you’re looking for the best early Best Buy deals and we’re here to help. There are some old favorites on this list, as well as some new standout products that you’ll enjoy. Before you start shopping, though, keep a few things in mind:
- Best Buy offers a price match guarantee, though it’s not universal: Starting October 18, anything listed as “Black Friday Price Guarantee” means that members of Best Buy’s Totaltech (paid) or My Best Buy (free tier available) membership plans can get the difference refunded on items if the price goes down on or before November 26, 2021 (as spelled out here).
- Ongoing supply chain issues mean that buying early is more important in 2021 than it has been in previous years.
- Target, Walmart, Amazon and other vendors have started or will soon be starting early holiday shopping deals.
With that out of the way, we’ll say that we’re still sorting and curating the current slate of Best Buy deals and we’ll update this story as we find more. In the meantime, we’ve pulled together some of the best options below.

If you prefer full-size over-the-ear noise-canceling headphones, you’ll want to opt for the Sony WH-1000XM4.
