Amazon is, without a doubt, the biggest store that is open on Black Friday. Amazon has always been the first to start Black Friday sales earlier than anyone else, and this year’s Prime Early Access Sale on October 11 and 12 is no different. In the most popular Black Friday deals, shoppers are sure to find some of the best and biggest price cuts, such as on robot vacuums, toys, headphones, smart speakers, electric toothbrushes, tablets, and just about everything else. Here are some of the most interesting things we’ve seen so far.
Apple Watch SE 2nd Gen (44 mm, GPS)
Street price: $270; Amazon deal price: $240
The price is better, the screen is excellent, and the battery life is good. A good choice for someone’s first smartwatch. Minimal upgrades from 1st generation. It doesn’t have a screen that stays on all the time, and it’s smaller than the Series 8. A new crash detection feature can falsely trigger theme park rides.
Google Pixel 6 (Unlocked, 256 GB)
Street price: $600; Amazon deal price: $463
Why we like it: Gives Android users the best software experience. Receives updates for security until the fall of 2026. Excellent build quality. It has the second-best camera we’ve seen on a smartphone. Google’s Tensor processor works quickly and can handle AI tasks that are more complicated. Unlocked, and it works with all of the significant 5G carriers. 8 GB RAM. 256 GB storage. Stormy Black is the color.
Garmin Forerunner 45 GPS Running Watch (42 mm)
Street price: $140; Amazon deal price: $118
Why we like it: Tracks running and other activities well. Doesn’t track swimming and has fewer activity modes. The app keeps data in a way that makes it easy to look at.
Segway Ninebot KickScooter F30
Street price: $570; Amazon deal price: $500
Why we like it: Less expensive, but still capable. Each charge will get you about 10 miles. Less heavy than other choices. The design lets you use a bike lock. It weighs 33 pounds and can hold up to 265 pounds. The range isn’t as good as what Segway says it is, which is 18 miles. The Max speed is 15 mph.
TCL 32S334 32-Inch Android TV
Street price: $160; Amazon deal price: $132
Why we like it: The best 32-inch TV on our list. Offers better picture quality than the competition and comes with helpful features like voice search and Bluetooth audio output. 720p resolution isn’t great for close-ups, and scenes that are really dark can sometimes look too blue. A new low price.
Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra (Unlocked, 128 GB)
Street price: $1050; Amazon deal price: $900
Why we like it: Our most versatile pick for best Android phones. Delivers peak quality and top-class features in spades. High resolution 1440×3088 OLED screen. Advanced camera suite. Excellent build quality. Overpriced but worth picking up on sale.. Includes S Pen stylus slot in phone body. Too large for one-handed use. Pixel camera often takes better pictures.
Graco Extend2Fit 3-in-1 Convertible Car Seat with Anti-Rebound Bar
Street price: $280; Amazon deal price: $203
Why we like it: The best all-in-one car seat for us. Has a lot of the same features as our top pick for a convertible car seat. It can be changed into a booster seat. Cost-effective. The anti-rebound bar can help stop the car from moving again after the first impact of a crash. We’ve found that each type of seat tends to be much better at what it’s made for than a seat that does everything. Only when the child is facing backward can the anti-rebound bar be used. The seat cover can be taken off quickly.
Vizio Elevate Soundbar System
Street price: $850; Amazon deal price: $700
Why we like it: Best soundbar if you want a complete system. Dynamic and immersive audio experience. Two HDMI inputs and Bluetooth and Chromecast music streaming. Voices don’t sound as clear as they do through our top pick. Attach an Amazon Echo Dot to add smart-speaker functionality. The deal isn’t as good as what we saw during the Prime Early Access Even
Thames & Kosmos Gummy Candy Lab
Street price: $13; Amazon deal price: $7 with clipped on-page coupon
Why we like it: Comes with all the ingredients and moulds you need to make colourful gummies that taste like fruit. Kids learn about the science behind making candy. For most microwave or stove experiments, kids will need help from an adult. Get the deal price by cutting out the coupon on the page.
