Ask Brad: The Top 30 Black Friday Deals of 2021

When we choose our top Black Friday deals, it’s not just about the discount. We’re thinking about who’s on your holiday shopping list, and what you’ve got your eye on for yourself. This year, our picks for the best online Black Friday deals of 2021 include home goods, apparel, toys, and more.  You may notice we’ve got fewer TVs, no gaming consoles, and are a little bit lighter on computers this year. With the chip shortages and supply chain issues, we haven’t seen the same deep discounts on these items that we’ve seen in prior years.

Also note that while some prices are live now, some will not be live until the official Black Friday sales start. We will do our best to stay on top of the sales and any price changes, but to the best of our knowledge, all Black Friday pricing is accurate at the time of this posting!

KitchenAid Professional 5-Quart Stand Mixer at Target

Regular Price: $429.99

Black Friday Price: $219.99

We saw this price from the KitchenAid website back in early November but haven’t seen anything as low since and it is an excellent deal for a KitchenAid Professional 5-quart model.

Our editor Kaitlynn K. points out that this is the bowl-lift version which works slightly better than the tilt-head model and also has a bigger bowl capacity. She also points out that if you’re a bread maker, this Professional series mixer does a better job with the heavy dough mixing than the tilt-head classic.

Apple Watch SE at Target

Regular Price: $279.99

Black Friday Price: $219.99

The lowest price we’ve seen this year for this model of the Apple Watch is $239. The $220 price is a low for the year and you can choose from 6 colorways at the $60 off pricepoint.

Blackstone 22″ Griddle Bundle at Walmart

Current price: n/a

Black Friday price: $117

Our deal editor Julie notes that this is a HOT product this year, with a very much intended pun. This 22″ Blackstone Griddle Bundle is a Black Friday exclusive, so there is no current price for comparison. Walmart had the 17″ griddle for $84 back in June of 2020, but this is the lowest we’ve seen for the 22″ this year. Similar Blackstone griddles are running around $150 without the hardtop cover and carrying case.

Samsung – 60″ Class TU7000 LED 4K UHD Smart Tizen TV at Best Buy

Current price: $599.99

Black Friday price: $529.99

A top Black Friday TV pick from both of our tech editors David and Mike, this Samsung 60″ Smart Tizen TV has a Crystal 4K processor 60 Hz native refresh rate, OneRemote, and Universal Guide. It beats the Black Friday price at Walmart by $18.

Fitbit Versa 3 at Kohl’s

Regular Price: $229.99

Black Friday Price: $179.99

This Fitbit Versa 3 deal also gets you $45 in Kohl’s Cash. The olive green color is a Kohl’s exclusive and it’s the best price on a Versa we can find by $47.

PowerXL Dual Basket Air Fryer at Target

Regular Price: $199.99

Black Friday Price: $99.99

Air fry two separate foods at once with this dual basket air fryer. We also saw this air fryer in the Kohl’s Black Friday ad for $129.99 with $30 in Kohl’s Cash. The Target deal is better out of pocket and the lowest we’ve seen this holiday season.

LG – 55″ Class C1 Series OLED 4K UHD Smart webOS TV at Best Buy

Current price: $1499.99

Black Friday price: $1299.99

Both of our tech editors David and Mike consider this a great price for an LG C1 Series OLED TV. It features self-lit pixels, NVIDIA G-SYNC gaming technology, 120 Hz native refresh rate, and their best processor. If you’re on a tighter budget, see the next TV deal from Target.

LG 55″ Class 4K UHD Smart OLED HDR TV at Target

Current price: $1099.99

Black Friday price: $1399.99

This is a similar 55″ 4K OLED TV to the one mentioned above from Best Buy, but it is a slightly lesser model than the C1 series as it has a 60 Hz native refresh rate while the C1 has 120 Hz. If you’ve got an additional $200 to spend, go for the C1, but if you’re on a tight budget this year, this Target deal is excellent for the size.

Regular Price: $599.99

Black Friday Price: $379.99

Target is taking $220 off this Deebot N8+ Robotic Vacuum making it the lowest price we’ve seen this year by $20. If you’re looking for a robot vacuum with fewer features and a smaller price tag, they’ll also have the Ecovacs Deebot N79W for $134.99 which is another Black Friday price low.

Regular Price: $170

Black Friday Price: $29.99

This is a favorite of ours and we normally post it at $50! The lowest we’ve seen recently has been $39.99, so the $29.99 price for any size is a deal worth grabbing if you need some new sheets.

Eufy Robot Vacuum at Walmart

Current price: $119.95

Black Friday price: $99

The Eufy vacuums are a huge hit among Brad’s Deals editors. This Robovac is one of our favorite lesser-known brands and the $99 price for this robot vacuum matches Walmart’s 2020 price. It beats the next best price of $109 that we saw from BuyDig earlier in October of this year.

Samsung Chromebook 4 at Walmart

Current price: $129

Black Friday price: $87

Last year we saw the Samsung Chromebook 4 drop to $199 at Walmart in October. This $87 price point is the lowest we’ve ever seen for this Chromebook, but we may see this same price from other retailers as well.

A budget TV pick from our editors, this TCL 65″ Roku TV is the best lower-tier large TV we could find in any of the Black Friday sales this year. While you’re not getting a big-name brand, you’re still getting a big screen and some great features for the $500 price.

This Gourmia Air Fryer Toaster Oven is the best price we’ve seen on a combination air fryer toaster oven this year. Kohl’s had a similar model from the same brand back in April of 2020 for $56 with $10 in Kohl’s Cash making it a better offer, but for 2021, this is a solid choice!

Shark EZ Self-Empty Robot Vacuum at Walmart

Current price: $499

Black Friday price: $288

This Shark EZ Self-Emptying Robot Vacuum deal is the one I’m most excited about. Other Shark bagless robot vacuums are $500-$600 and the $288 price point is something I can get behind! Other than refurbished models, this is the lowest price we’ve seen on a self-emptying robot vacuum this year.

Apple AirPods at Walmart

Current price: $119
