Here are all the best early Black Friday deals we can find right now - Ars Technica

As we noted when we first started seeing "early Black Friday" sales pop up earlier this month, what started out as a weekend of sales to help people get ahead of their holiday shopping has turned into a weeks-long barrage of breathless promotions.

So, to help those who want to get a jump-start on their gift-getting, we're poring over every Black Friday sale we can find ("early" or not) and compiling the deals we consider genuinely good, based on price histories, our own testing, and user feedback from around the web.

While it's not the lowest price we've ever tracked, this deal nevertheless brings a good chance to save if you need to top up your membership for another year.

We have a list of notable deals below, but some highlights include a handful of first-party Switch games down to $27 at GameStop (undercutting the Black Friday offers Nintendo previously advertised), a couple of $20 off deals on acclaimed PS5 exclusives in Returnal and Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart, and all-time lows on recent well-reviewed games like It Takes Two, Hitman 3, and Psychonauts 2, among many others.

Amazon has put nearly the entire Fire tablet lineup on sale for Black Friday, but the best pick for most is likely the Fire HD 10 for $75, which is the lowest price we've tracked.

We've seen this deal a few times this month, but it remains the best price we've tracked for our top pick among wireless noise-canceling headphones.

Currently, if you buy a $100 Apple Gift Card at Target or Best Buy, both retailers will throw in a $15 gift card to their respective stores for no extra cost.

Unfortunately, we have not found any deals on our overall favorite, the Apple Watch Series 7, but the Apple Watch SE is available for a new low of $219.

It's also noticeably faster than the budget-tier Apple Watch Series 3.

This is the lowest price we've seen on Azul, a board game we like and a past winner of the prestigious Spiel des Jahres award (which is the closest thing board games have to an official "game of the year" designation).

This is the first notable discount we've seen for Google's Pixel 5a phone.

Ars' Android guru Ron Amadeo definitively named this the best Android smartphone for most people in his review earlier this year, praising the Pixel 5a for packing a top-notch camera, clean and regularly updated software, good-enough performance, water resistance, and genuinely all-day battery life at an affordable price.

This year's Black Friday Switch bundle is the same one we've seen in years past, and it's not exactly a showstopper: it includes the base Switch console, not the bigger and more vibrant Switch OLED; a digital copy of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, which is still a good time but is a nearly 5-year-old update to a 7-year-old Wii U game; and a three-month subscription to the base tier of Nintendo Switch Online, which remains far from essential to enjoying the console.
