Black Friday is around the corner, officially landing Nov. 27, the day after Thanksgiving. And retailers across the board have ponied up substantial savings and deals in early Black Friday sales, among them October’s Prime Day-creator marketplace Amazon — right now, the massive retailer is offering up thousands of deals during its Black Friday deals week sales event, a precursor to Black Friday itself. Among its colleagues in the release space offering similar, wide-ranging discounts are Wayfair, Walmart, Target, Home Depot, Nordstrom and Macy’s — to name a few. And while Amazon will be dropping deals daily via its Epic Daily Deals, as well as Black Friday-first deals on Nov. 27 and more throughout Cyber Week, you can certainly save while shopping early. Doing so has other intrinsic value, as well, given that leading delivery services, including FedEx and UPS, are anticipating shipping delays, an approximate “shortfall of as many as 7 million packages a day,” NBC News reported in October.

1. Dyson Pure Hot + Cool

  • Rating: 4.6-star average rating, more than 540 reviewers

According to price comparison site CamelCamelCamel, this is the lowest price this Dyson has been since December 2019. Dyson is both a brand we’ve covered extensively and a brand Shopping readers demonstrated lots of love for, our frequent writeups a perpetual loop of positive feedback. The HEPA filter captures up to 99.97 percent of allergens, has 10 air speeds, automatic shut off, 350-degree oscillation and even boasts a backward airflow to keep you warm or help cool you down. It’s also available in five colorways on Dyson’s site: Iron/Silver, Iron/Blue, Black/Nickel, White/Silver and Scandium.

2. Kasa Outdoor Smart Plug by TP-Link

  • Rating: 4.8-star average rating, more than 5,100 reviewers

This is the lowest price the Kasa smart plug has ever been. This simple and highly-rated smart home upgrade lets you plug two different non-smart devices into them and turn them into smart home devices. Using Kasa’s app and Wi-Fi, you can tell the water-resistant plug to turn each device on or off, separately and from as many as 300 feet away. Using either Google Assistant or Amazon Alexa, you can also control it by voice command.

3. Sony WH-1000XM4 Wireless Noise Canceling Headphones

  • Rating: 4.6-star average rating, more than 3,540 reviewers

According to CamelCamelCamel, this is the lowest these overhead headphones have ever been. This model is an upgrade to Sony’s extremely powerful and wildly popular WH-1000XM3 headphones, which we determined were one of the best noise canceling headphones out right now. And the new pair makes them ever more feature-focused. Upgraded microphones will clarify phone calls (or voice recordings and command to your smart assistant). And the new edition can pair with multiple devices concurrently (helpful if you want to listen to your music off of your phone and take a work Zoom meeting call through your laptop).

4. iRobot 3150 Roomba i3 Robot Vacuum with Wi-Fi

  • Rating: 4.5-star average rating, more than 80 reviewers

Roomba's i series encompasses their more advanced models and this is the lowest price the i3 has been offered at, according to CamelCamelCamel. Instead of random navigation around your home, the i series can clean in neat, straight lines, which might be more effective in larger spaces — especially when combined with its increased suction (when compared to the e5). The i3 is a standalone vacuum, but the i3+ comes with a self-emptying dock — you don't have to clean out the chamber as often.

5. Breville BBL620SIL Countertop Blender

  • Rating: 4.7-star average rating, more than 850 reviewers

The last time this blender’s price beat this current sale was last November, according to CamelCamelCamel — and it only beat it by $8. With sharp stainless steel blades, this Breville blender is both quiet and efficient as both a blender and food processor. Utilize the LCD display and timer for pre-programmed settings complete with one-touch smoothie options and auto clean.
