Story highlights

  • Best Buy has announced its Black Friday sale for 2017. This year some of their biggest markdowns include laptops, TVs, fitness trackers and connected home goods.

Nothing feels quite like scoring a stellar deal. It's why we look forward to Black Friday every year. It's one of the few days when we can count on grabbing laptops, televisions, clothing and even holiday gifts for a steal. And now with many retailers offering slashed-down prices both in store and online, we don't even have to fight the crowds to get a piece of the shopping action.

One retailer that we always have our eyes on during Black Friday is Best Buy. The electronics giant offers deep discounts in practically every tech category. This year that haul includes laptops, 4K TVs, fitness trackers and connected home goods. Other great deals up for grabs include a top-of-the-line quadcopter, coveted tablets and soundbar systems. These tech goodies are perfect for gifting for the holiday season—or they work just as well as a treat for yourself. Hey, you deserve it.

As an added bonus, many of these deals are available to shop right now, ahead of Black Friday.

It is important to note that Best Buy still reserves some of its markdowns for in store only, if the thrill of bargain hunting in person is your thing. This year the doorbusters begin on Thanksgiving at 5 PM. That being said, most of the promotions are available through the site or app. For the full list of discounts being offered, click here. The savings last until November 25.

Ahead, we've rounded up some notable markdowns this year. Ready, set, shop.
