Black Friday is around the corner. Here's your shopping strategy to get all the goodies for less. (Yahoo)

[Editor’s note: We’re updating our coverage daily, so check out today’s best Black Friday deals here! The original story is below.]

Black Friday might have started out as a one-day opportunity to snag some of the best deals of the year, but ah, how things have changed! While we officially have two days to go, many retailers have already started rolling out markdowns galore, from Adidas to Wayfair and everyone in between (Target, Kohl's, Macy's, Lowe's, Walmart — you get the idea). Plus, we're seeing a ton of all-time low prices, many that even rival Prime Day, so you'll want to have your virtual cart ready to go.

These big sales events can be overwhelming, but that's what we're here for. As professional shoppers, we know how to find the very best Black Friday deals, and we've weeded through the good, the meh and the "don't even think about it" so you don't have to. A few must-haves we're seeing? A No. 1 bestselling Roomba robovac for 40% off (just $159), essential 2nd generation AirPods for a mere $80 and so much more. There's no telling how long these deals will last, so our advice? Snag 'em before the pumpkin pie is even out of the oven!

Best Black Friday sales by major retailers

Have a holiday gift list a mile long? If you'd like to check items off as quickly as possible — while saving money — there are several retailers we consider one-stop-shops that are sure to have everything you're looking for, and at great prices. Amazon's the biggie (especially if you're a Prime member!), but Kohl's, Macy's, Target and Walmart are offering competitive deals themselves. And, while these major retailers can't be beat when it comes to cost and convenience, it's also great to support your local small businesses when you can!

Amazon: Everyone's favorite online retailer kicked off their extended Black Friday sale on November 17th, and, as always, their deals do not disappoint. From $80 AirPods to a No. 1 bestselling Roomba ($159, down from $275) to a popular pillow set (just $13 a pop), you'll find some of the best prices we've seen to date, along with mega markdowns on clothing, beauty, kitchen products and more.

Kohl's: Kohl's has certainly heard the call for great Black Friday deals, with hundreds of top sellers and fan favorites marked down up to 70% off. Deals include a $220 off a Dyson cordless vacuum or a Ninja air fryer oven for $100 off, among many, many others. You'll also score $10 Kohl's Cash for every $50 spent through 11/22, as well as an extra 15% off many items through 11/24 with code GOSHOP15 and free shipping for all with a $25+ purchase.

Macy's: It's not just about the parade this Black Friday week at Macy's! The retail giant is offering up tons of deals across categories. You can get a Samsonite 2-piece luggage set for $200, all the way down from $620, and save over $100 on a classic Le Creuset dutch oven, among other fabulous discounts.

Sam's Club: Score a Sam's Club membership for 60% off — just $20 a year.

Target: It's easy to spend money at Target even when there isn't a major sales event happening, so the fact that they currently have the best deals on the internet for everything from a Dyson vacuum to a Cuisinart toaster oven makes the prospect of shopping there all the more enticing. You can even score a 50-inch TV for just $180 (down from $280!) One thing's for certain — they really hit the bullseye this Black Friday!

Walmart: We love Walmart for its low prices all year long, but throw a Black Friday sale into the mix? Heck yes. We're seeing a KitchenAid stand mixer for the best price online, along with a Shark vacuum and stunning air fryer by the one and only Drew Barrymore priced even less than they are at Amazon. You can even get your hands on an all-in-one printer for nearly 50% off. (Psst: Walmart's Black Friday deals officially drop online on November 22nd at 3 pm ET, but you can score plenty of discounts already!)

Best Black Friday TV deals

With the weather turning colder, a whole new lineup of Christmas movies on the horizon and winter sports season just around the corner, it's prime time to snatch up a brand-new TV to bring your living room together. There are tons of deals — from a record-low price on a cozy, 24-inch TV to savings of $3,000 on a 98-inch monstrosity.

This TV is almost 50% off, with a price tag of just $65. That's unbelievable on its own — hard to believe TVs would ever be this affordable! It's a great size for keeping in the kitchen or as a bedroom set, and the Alexa Voice Remote makes it easy to browse the built-in interface to find your favorite shows. 

$65 at Amazon

We talk a lot about 4K resolution, but what that really means is that you get more than 8 million pixels to recreate any image with stunning clarity and color. A backlit that covers the entire panel means you get crisp contrast between light and dark areas, too — all for less than $250. 

$248 at Walmart

With Amazon Alexa and the Fire TV interface built into the basic design of this TV, you can expect incredible performance and features on a budget. At nearly 40% off, this TV supports 4K resolution across 50 inches of screen. This is also on par with the lowest price we've ever sen for this model. 

$310 at Amazon

$5,998 at Amazon

Walmart: Walmart is rolling prices way back for Black Friday, with deals starting at just $78 for TVs.

Best Black Friday headphone and earbud deals

If the AirPods don't appeal to you, the Pros might. These earbuds come with active noise cancellation, up to 30 hours of battery life, touch controls, and many more features, but the standout reason to try these? They're comfortable and perfect for all-day wear. Oh yeah, and they're at one of the lowest prices they've ever been.

With the already-wild 60% off for the Black Friday deal combined with the on-page coupon, these earbuds drop to just $10 — that's a whopping 80% off in total.

Best Black Friday deals on laptops and tablets

Computers are a year-round necessity, but the time to purchase a new laptop? Right now. Black Friday comes with some of the best discounts you're likely to see on laptops at any point throughout the year, like $249 off a new MacBook Air or nearly 80% off a workhorse like the Sgin 15.6-incher. You can even nab major savings on rarely-discounted items like gaming laptops.

The MacBook Air needs no introduction. With 8GB of RAM, a 256GB SSD, Retina display, and the loads of other features it brings to bear, this laptop has more than earned its reputation. This is also one of the lowest price it has ever been on sale for, so don't miss this chance to snatch up a slightly older — but still incredible — laptop!

"Great commuter laptop that's perfect for students," one fan said. "I bought the 2020 M1 MacBook this year to work on my assignments on the fly. This thing is great — its lightweight, small, and most importantly, has amazing battery life. To be more specific, I’ve gotten about 20 hours of light use on one charge alone."

$800 at Amazon

This ultra-thin, ultra-light laptop is ideal for someone who needs easy access to the web on the go. What it lacks in power it more than makes up for with convenience, but it still comes with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of onboard storage, as well as a one-year subscription to Office 365 — a $100 value on its own. While this isn't quite the lowest price on record, it's close to it. Where else will you find a laptop for $150? 

$199 at Amazon

The always-popular Sgin is a budget-focused brand that brings a lot of savings to the table, especially when you consider that this guy is nearly 80% off. That's a fantastic deal worth having another can of cranberry sauce over, especially when you consider that it also comes with 4GB of RAM and a 128GB SSD. It might be the best choice for gaming, but it's great for everyday use and low-level productivity. 

$260 at Walmart

This convertible laptop easily swaps between laptop mode and tablet mode. It also comes with 4GB of RAm and 128GB of onboard storage, making it a fantastic option for a day-to-day productivity and entertainment machine. While $310 isn't the lowest price we've ever seen it, it's still a darn good deal — and it's close to the cheapest it has ever been. 

$310 at Amazon

This powerhouse of a laptop is a video and image editor's dream. With an RTX 4060, 32GB of RAM, and a 1TB SSD, it can handle high-end tasks with ease. To put it in perspective, this is often heralded as a Macbook Pro competitor. It normally sells for $1,600, but you can pick one up for just $1,100 right now — the lowest price on record for this particular model. 

$1,357 at Amazon

Amazon: The mega retailer's got the 2020 Macbook Air for just $750, a discount of $249 off its normal sales price. Can you say wow?

Target: Target is actually an often-overlooked retailer for laptops, especially of the gaming variety. You can find discounts of several hundred from brands like MSI and Acer.

Walmart: It's rare that laptops go on sale for more than 30% or so, but Walmart takes the spotlight with a discount of over 75% on a fantastic choice: the Sgin laptop, just $260 (was $1,050).

Best Black Friday kitchen deals

Between the days getting colder and the holidays being upon us, it's peak "get-cozy-in-the-kitchen" season. It's also a fantastic time to score great markdowns on tools and appliances from some of the best culinary brands out there. For starters, there's a Keurig coffee maker and Ninja blender/food processor that are down to their all-time lowest prices, as well as the best deals you'll find on a Cuisinart air fryer toaster oven and a KitchenAid stand mixer. You'll also save big on cookware from Our Place, Made In, All-Clad, Staub, Le Creuset and more.

With this compact Keurig, you'll be able to enjoy a freshly brewed cup of joe, no filters or coffee grinders required — and it won't take up much counter space, either. We've yet to see this model dip below $50, and if you're someone who enjoys a hot bev (or two) on a daily basis, it'll pay for itself with all the time (and trips to Starbucks) it'll save you. We recommend snagging it while it's 50% off.

$60 at Amazon

You get so much with this kitchen system: A 72-ounce pitcher, 8-cup food processor and two 16-ounce single-serve cups you can take on the go. With a brand like Ninja, you know you're getting a quality product, so the fact that this 2-in-1 blender/food processor combo is just $100 is pretty astounding. At 50% off, it's the lowest price we've seen it for in years. 

$150 at Amazon

If you've been dreaming of owning a best-in-class KitchenAid stand mixer, now's the time to pounce — at just $259, this is the lowest price we've seen on the web, and there are four lovely hues to choose from. 

$259 at Walmart

With its 6-quart capacity, this gorgeous air fryer can hold enough food for five to seven people, yet its small footprint won't take up too much room in your kitchen. It features four functions: Air Fry, Roast, Reheat and Dehydrate, the latter of which is a cool feature that isn't always included with air fryers. Lowest price we've seen!

$69 at Walmart

Equipped with three slots for sharpening, repairing, straightening and polishing, it'll take your old blades from obsolete to like new in just a few swipes.

Best Black Friday vacuum deals

In the market for a new dust-zapper? Well, vroom-vroom! We're seeing a historic low price on a bestselling Roomba (just $159!), as well as stellar deals on a viral Bissell stain remover, Shark vacuum and, yes, even models from Dyson. Whether it's an upright, handheld, stick or robovac you're looking for, you'll find it here for a steal.

This No. 1 bestselling, TikTok-famous compact carpet cleaner packs a punch, especially considering it weighs less than 10 pounds! Its powerful suction can be used to remove stains not just from rugs, but furniture and even car upholstery, too. We haven't seen this viral cleaner priced much lower than it currently is in years (it was only a few bucks cheaper back in July for Prime Day) — and when you consider how much money it'll save you in professional cleaning bills (and replacement furniture), it'll pay for itself in just a few uses.

$124 at Amazon

At just 3.2 pounds, this lightweight stick vac is mightier than it appears. It transforms into a handheld and comes with multiple attachments to tackle messes in practically every part of your home. We've only seen it on sale for less than this once (though not by much) — and at any rate, it's 78% off, making this an exceptional deal. It's even cheaper than it is at Amazon. 

$86 at Walmart

A No. 1 bestselling Roomba for just $159 might sound too good to be true, but there's no catch — except that this insane deal won't last forever. At 40% off, this is the best price we've seen.

A highly rated Dyson for just $250? Um, yes please! This is the lowest price we're seeing (even when compared to Amazon), and it comes with a 2-year warranty and lifetime Dyson customer support for peace of mind. 

$250 at Target

This might not be the cheapest we've seen this highly rated upright vac, but it doesn't go on sale for less very often, and it's the best price we're seeing at the moment. At over 40% off, it's a great deal, especially considering the quality you're getting with Shark. 

$164 at Walmart

Amazon: Zap up the TikTok-famous Bissell Little Green cleaner for its lowest price in a month ($89, down from $124), plus a No. 1 bestselling iRobot Roomba 694 for an all-time low price of $159 (down from $275).

Shopping Strategies for Black Friday

The 2022 Black Friday shopping weekend was the "biggest ever" for major retailers "with customers around the world purchasing hundreds of millions of products between Thanksgiving and Cyber Monday," Maryland-based e-commerce expert Phil Masiello, told Yahoo Life. And this year, Black Friday is expected to break even more records. Here are some things to keep in mind:

  • Do your research: Julie Ramhold, consumer analyst with DealNews.com, advises to make a list of items that you're interested in buying, then note their current prices at the retailers you like to shop. That way, you’ll be able to spot a great Black Friday deal as soon as you see it. “The most important thing is to know exactly what you want. What specs you want in a TV or laptop and which headphones you want,” says Kristin McGrath, shopping expert with RetailMeNot. “Consumers shouldn’t assume that just because a product is discounted it’s the best price out there. I recommend checking for the product on one to two other retailers to compare the regular price with a potential 'sale' price to ensure you’re actually getting the best deal,” echoes Kristen Gall, retail and shopping expert for Rakuten.

  • Stay on top of the ads: Pay attention as Black Friday ads come out, says Ramhold. “It may be helpful to follow your favorite retailers on social media and sign up for their email newsletters as well, since they may announce the ad release that way as well as other important details, like when the sales will begin.” Gall calls the ads “your Black Friday road map for deals.”

  • Check out holiday price guarantees: Have a few favorite retailers? “Check to see if they're offering any kind of price match or guarantee for Black Friday,” advises Ramhold. The idea is that you’ll know if you can request your preferred retailer match the price of a competitor during a Black Friday event, or if you'll have to shop the competitor instead. “And if there's a price guarantee in place, it's good to know that if you buy something early on and it later drops in price, you'll be able to receive a price adjustment for the difference.”

  • Try to get cash back: “In addition to doing a price comparison, you can ensure you are getting the absolute best price by stacking deals to maximize savings,” says Gall. “Cash-back services like Rakuten allow you to earn cash back on top of sale prices. For extra savings, plan to apply promo codes or digital coupons, and use a rewards credit card to extra earn points or cash back.”

The best Black Friday 2023 deals to look out for

Let's get down to the nitty-gritty: Gall believes that retailers’ overstock categories will be the biggest predictor of Black Friday gold. That includes “home goods, gardening and furniture that they may have not gotten rid of during Labor Day weekend sales,” she says.

But she notes that Black Friday will also focus on “bigger ticket items, such as tech, including laptops, TVs and more.” And that seems to be the general consensus: McGrath, Masiello and Ramhold agree that sales on personal tech items will be the bread and butter of Black Friday 2023. Here are some of the favorites in this race:

  • Laptops: Ramhold calls these “one of the quintessential Black Friday items” and says to “watch for prices to drop as low as $90 for things like simple Chromebooks while laptops, in general, could be priced as low as $229 or see discounts up to $800 off.”

  • Smartphones: Ramhold predicts major retailers will offer the latest Android smartphones and iPhones bundled with gift cards worth hundreds, “which can be used on later purchases and boost the value of these deals.”

  • TVs: McGrath says to look to the major retailers and study their Black Friday ads so you can pounce on the TV you want before it’s gone. “Stock sells out quickly on the best-priced sets, and there are always a few headline-making deals that get a ton of hype and sell out in minutes,” she says. “Zero in on the 4K TV you want, have some backups and get ready to shop as soon as the Black Friday sale kicks off.”

  • Cameras: Expect deals on everything from Instax cameras to DSLRs, says Ramhold.

  • Apple products: Look out for great deals on AirPods, especially AirPods Pro, which are “still immensely popular, and retailers like Walmart, Amazon, Target and Best Buy will likely offer the lowest price of the year," says McGrath. She also recommends getting ready to pounce on a new Apple Watch Series 9.

  • Toys: Historically, the best toy sales happen in December, says Ramhold, but “Black Friday toy deals should be pretty big.” She says to expect up to 85% off at major stores.

  • Kitchen appliances: McGrath says KitchenAid mixers are the products to watch. These are expensive, and Black Friday deals knock the price down to almost affordable for many shoppers. But last year we saw deals on KitchenAid stand mixers sell out quickly, so be ready to jump on a good deal if you see it.
