Samsung Family Hub

Starting off with a behemoth, you can buy the Samsung Family Hub fridge -- the smartest large appliance we've ever tested -- for well off its sticker price. At $4,000 vs. its normal cost of almost $6,000, the Family Hub price is almost reasonable. Check Samsung's site for large appliance retailers in your area.

Samsung WaterWall

You'll find lots of large appliance sales on Black Friday -- almost every retailer and every manufacturer are offering a few hundred or more off of a variety of stock. Samsung's no different. In addition to the huge sale on the Family Hub, you'll find a big discount on Samsung's WaterWall dishwashers -- down $300 from $1,100 to $800.

LG TwinWash

LG has a lot of its own large appliance stock for sale as well. Topping the list -- if you buy a washer and dryer combo, you can upgrade your washer with a sidekick drawer for free. LG also has big discounts on its fridges, though a lot of the deals are run of the mill.

Kenmore Appliances

In general, the large appliance deals we've seen for Black Friday are pretty typical -- you can usually get a couple hundred off the list price of large appliances on almost any day of the year. Sears has a nice selection of discounted Kenmore appliances, though, with some nearly 50 percent off.

Dyson v6 Absolute

If you need to clean up after the holidays, Dyson has you covered. My biggest problem with Dyson's easy-to-use stick vacs has always been the price. On Black Friday, you'll be able to get the Dyson v6 Absolute from Walmart for $390 -- more than $200 off of its original $600 price tag. Target has the similar v6 Animal for $300. The Animal has a few less accessories, but either makes for a great purchase if you're in need of a manueverable stick vac.
