Best Black Friday Tech Deals for 2020

Withings, Apple, Roku, Google, Ring and Jabra deals plus more coming for early sales

Like GearBrain on Facebook

Sales for Black Friday 2020 are a moving target. Rather than just showing up on the traditional Friday after Thanksgiving, there are deals popping up the entire week before, and in some cases, like with Lenovo, much earlier.

Tech devices from smart watches, streaming media players, and wireless earbuds and headphones are just some of the devices that are going on sale early — some starting Saturday November 21.

The deals are outlined below, and we'll update this story as we hear about more.

Apple – Four-day shopping event starts November 27

Apple Black Friday 2020 promotion Apple's Black Friday event runs from November 27 through November 30Apple

Apple doesn't often so sales and discounts. Instead, for Black Friday 2020 it is handing our free gift cards with eligible purchases. The value of these gift cards ranges from $25 to $150, and are of course to be used in-store or through Apple's website and various online offerings. Examples include a $25 voucher when buying AirPods or AirPods Pro, a $100 voucher when buying an iPad Pro or HomePod (enough to buy a HomePod Mini to go alongside it), and a $150 voucher when buying a 21.5-inch iMac or 16-inch MacBook Pro.

As ever, some of Apple's latest products are not included in this promotion. There are no gift vouchers available when buying the iPhone 12, Apple Watch Series 4, 6 and SE, and the new iPad Air. The shopping event runs from Black Friday on November 27, through November 30.

As is often the case, discounted Apple products can be found elsewhere, including:
