Best Buy = chocolate, Black Friday 2018 = peanut butter

Add to Gift List

Black Friday is Nov. 23 this year, but the biggest retailers have revealed their Thanksgiving holiday sales early. And one of the biggest is Best Buy.

The technology specialist's big sale ad features low prices on TV, laptops, game consoles, speakers and streamers.

Best Buy's sale will start in stores at 5 p.m. on Thanksgiving, and some of the deals are in-store only. But many of the deals will also be available online.

Even better, some of the deals, especially on the game consoles, are available online now, before Black Friday. 

So which of Best Buy's Black Friday deals really are deals? Read on for our favorite picks, starting with the best ones you can buy today.

Motorola Moto G6: $200 (save $50)

Add to Gift List

Our favorite budget phone of 2018 was already a knockout value for $250, but this $200 price is a steal. The unlocked Android handset has dual rear cameras for portrait photos and some nice extra software touches.

This deal is available now at Best Buy.

Philips Hue White and Color Ambiance 3-Bulb Starter Kit with Remote for $120 (save $70)

Add to Gift List

This deal is available now.

This Philips Hue starter kit includes three color-changing bulbs, a wireless remote that docks on the wall like a light switch when you aren't using it, and the all-important Philips Hue Bridge that needs to stay plugged into your router in order to control the lights from your phone or sync them with Alexa, Siri or Google Assistant. It usually costs $190, but on Black Friday, Best Buy will sell it for $120. That's a terrific deal -- $30 less than you'd typically pay for just the bulbs.

Lenovo 8-inch Smart Display: $100 (save $100)

Add to Gift List

This deal is available now.

We've tested all of the impressive new Google Assistant smart displays this year -- Lenovo's was the first, and I think it's still my favorite. Best Buy has the 8-inch version marked down by a hundred bucks for Black Friday, bringing the price down to $99. That's the same price as the Black Friday deal on the smaller Google Home Hub.

65-inch TCL 4K Roku TV: $899 (save $70)

Add to Gift List

This deal is available now.

Moving on to TVs we have reviewed, this is most likely the best price you'll get for TCL's superb 65R615. This model is exclusive to Best Buy but basically identical to the one we named our favorite TV for the money in 2018. You simply can't get a picture this good for any less.

Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K: $35 (save $15)

43-inch Toshiba 4K Amazon Fire TV Edition TV: $130 (save $190)

Add to Gift List

The remainder of these deals are only available in stores and online during Best Buy's Black Friday sale, starting 5 p.m. Thanksgiving day, Nov. 22.

We'll start things off with a bang: the best TV deal at Best Buy for Black Friday 2018. Fire TV isn't not our favorite smart TV system -- that honor goes to Roku -- but it's still very good, and this price is pure insanity. Expect it to sell out quick.

This deal is a Doorbuster (in-store only, limited quantities).

55-inch Sharp 4K Roku TV: $250 (off $200)

Add to Gift List

Doorbuster (in-store only on Black Friday, Nov. 23, limited quantities)

Did we mention Roku TV? A bit bigger in size and just as huge in savings, this Sharp features the best smart TV system for as low as we've ever seen at this price. We haven't seen the Sharp directly, but the specifications look similar to the 55-inch 55S405 we reviewed in 2017. We expect similar picture quality -- decent but nowhere near the much more expensive TCL 65R617, for example.

65-inch LG OLED65C8P OLED TV: $2,600 (save $100)

Add to Gift List

This year the discounts on LG's OLED models, aren't spectacular. Best Buy's price on the 65-inch C8, the best TV we've ever tested, is $100 lower than everyone else's however. We still recommend the B8 for $100 less, but if you demand the best picture, period, here you go.

This deal will be available in-store on Thanksgiving at 5 p.m. but this price isn't marked "in-store only," so it could appear at BestBuy.com as well.

Add to Gift List

Doorbuster (Online and in-store starting 5 p.m. Thanksgiving day, Nov. 22, limited quantities)

Normally $250 for both the Ring 2 and the new Echo Dot, this bundle lets you live the dream of voice-controlled door security -- perfect for when that Amazon guy comes knocking.

Google Home Hub: $99 ($50 off)

Add to Gift List

Doorbuster (Online and in-store starting 5 p.m. Thanksgiving day, Nov. 22, limited quantities)

This is Google's version of Amazon's Echo Show: a smart speaker with a built-in screen that responds to "OK Google" and shows all kinds of useful stuff, from recipes to smart home controls.

Apple Homepod: $250 at Best Buy ($100 off)

Add to Gift List

Apple's awesome-sounding smart speaker has two major knocks: Siri still isn't as good a voice assistant as Alexa and Google, and the $350 price is just too high. This Best Buy discount nicely addresses the second issue, getting it to a much more reasonable $250. 

Availability: In-store on Thanksgiving at 5 p.m. but this price isn't marked "in-store only," so it could appear at BestBuy.com as well.

Doorbuster (Online and in-store starting 5 p.m. Thanksgiving day, Nov. 22, limited quantities)

Google's answer to Amazon's Alexa is a tiny, always-listening speaker that responds to "OK, Google" with everything Google Assistant has to offer. At this price it's easy to put one in a secondary room.

Sonos One smart speaker with Alexa: $175 (save $25)

Sony WH-1000XM2 noise-cancelling headphone: $200 (save $150)

Add to Gift List

Doorbuster (in-store only on Nov. 23, limited quantities)

These headphones came out in 2017 but they still remain one of CNET's favorite wireless noise-canceling headphones. While the Bose QuietComfort 35 II is lighter and more comfortable to wear, the Sony WH-1000XM2 arguably sounds a tad better and offers more features. And this price is insane.

Available online and in-store starting Thanksgiving, Nov. 22. Requires activation on AT&T, Sprint or Verizon.

T-Mobile customers won't be able to benefit from any of Best Buy's offers, but $300 off any of Samsung's premium phones is a pretty good deal. The deal requires a qualified activation, and exact pricing on the phones appear to vary based on the carrier.

MacBook Air (2017 model): $800 (save $200)

Add to Gift List

Doorbuster (Online and in-store starting 5 p.m. Thanksgiving day, Nov 22, limited quantities)

The new MacBook Air starts at $1,200 and this older version sells for $1,000 at Apple's web site, so the savings is substantial. This is the base configuration with 128GB storage, 8GB RAM and a Core i5 processor. It goes on sale pretty frequently, but this is still the lowest price we've seen.

Amazon Fire HD 8: $50 (save $30)

Add to Gift List

Doorbuster (Online and in-store starting 5 p.m. Thanksgiving day, Nov. 22, limited quantities)

It's not Amazon's biggest or most powerful tablet, but for this price this 8-incher hits the sweet spot. The special kids' edition is built tougher, but it's a lot more expensive.

This deal will also be available at Amazon starting Nov. 22.

iPad Mini 4: $250 (save $150)

Add to Gift List

Doorbuster (Online and in-store starting 5 p.m. Thanksgiving day, Nov 22, limited quantities)

This iPad is from 2016, and this 128GB version with Wi-Fi is the cheapest available on Apple's site, but it costs $400 there -- making this a pretty sweet deal. We still prefer the new, larger 32GB iPad at Target for the same price, but maybe you want your screen smaller and your storage bigger.
