Black Friday is almost here, which means you’re probably already getting inundated with information about the best deals.

Back in the old days, it was easier to keep track of the sales. You’d see Black Friday ads from major retailers detailing their plans, then you’d circle the biggest “doorbuster” deals of the season, and you’d line up out front of the stores at 5am.

Now, in 2020, things are a bit different. Retail ads start leaking out in October for “early Black Friday sales,” and almost all the biggest discounts can be snagged online. Heck, even retailer ad scans are online. That means, while you run the risk of being digitally overloaded, it’s now easier than ever for you to successfully master Black Friday. 

With that said, we’re rounding up the best deals for professionals and remote workers and listing all the retailer ads and sale hubs — all with the goal of making sure you get nearly everything on your Christmas list at a discount. Good luck!

The Apple Watch SE is all-new for 2020. It carries a lot of the same features as the Series 6, though it doesn’t offer an always-on display, ECG functionality, or oxygen saturation measurements. The 40mm and 44mm models now cost $279 and $309, respectively, as part of an early Black Friday deal at Walmart.

Amazon is offering Apple’s wireless earbuds at the lowest price ever. Better grab this early deal now, because it wouldn’t surprise us if it went out of stock before Black Friday actually arrives.

It’s not even Black Friday yet, and Amazon is already shaving 20% off the retail price of its Echo Show 8, the larger version of the Echo Show 5. Considering Amazon just held Prime Day last month, we’re not sure many Amazon devices will be on sale this holiday season, so best hop on this deal while it’s available.
