We’re seven days away from the actual Black Friday, however if you’ve been aware of our ongoing coverage for this shopping season, you know that there are excellent deals happening every day. We have all sorts of excellent early Black Friday deals, including some retailers and brand-specific roundups, and there’s still a lot more to come. Let’s take a quick look at some of the featured deals that just popped up today.
First of all, Amazon’s latest version of its acclaimed Kindle Paperwhite – released last month – is $ 45 off the Kids version at Amazon and Best Buy. This is a great deal on the new Paperwhite, complete with its better screen that adjusts color temperature and USB-C port.
As it is the children’s version, it has no ads and comes with a protective cover. There is no requirement that you buy this for a child, so do not feel any shame by taking advantage of this yourself. It is the technical agreement that is equivalent to using your child to get in front of a busy line (reminder: Guardian offer does not tolerate taking parental advice from Guardian offer.) Read our review of the new Kindle Paperwhite.
If you have too much shame or prefer an even more budget-friendly e-reader, the most affordable 2019 Kindle from 2019 is $ 40 off Amazon and Best Buy – only $ 50 for the ad-supported version or $ 70 without ads. Kindle prices do not get cheaper than this – and when close to storage area – and even though it is a slightly older model, it still offers the glare-free e-ink screen experience that you only have to remember to charge every few weeks.

To stick to the Amazon front for a moment, the retail giant is offering discounts on multiple Echo Show devices. One of the most notable is the 2021 model Echo Show 5, which is perfect as a bedside table screen for smart alarms or easy connection to a Ring Doorbell live feed. The compact smart display usually costs $ 85, but is currently reduced to only $ 45 at Amazon and Best Buy.
Amazon also has its Kids Edition of Echo Show 5 reduced to $ 50 today. It comes with a one-year Kids Plus subscription to customize its feature to better suit your child’s age. Read our review of both models.
There are great deals on OnePlus phones across its entry, premium and flagship capabilities. The Nord N200 5G was already a great deal, but now you can get it for only $ 200 ($ 40 off) at Amazon and Best Buy. It’s a whole lot of smartphone chops for two Benjamins. Read our review.
OnePlus 9, which goes up to the more premium option, now costs only $ 600 at Best Buy and Amazon. It’s a $ 130 rebate, bringing the Snapdragon 888-equipped smartphone on a more competitive footing with the Pixel 6. The new Pixels could have surpassed OnePlus in our latest Guide to The Best Phone to Buy Right Now, but this selling price makes a OnePlus 9 more worth considering. Read our review.
Finally, this largest OnePlus sale is reserved for its largest phone. The ultra-flagship OnePlus 9 Pro is currently $ 269 off at Best Buy and Amazon. This underpins the hard-to-reach Pixel 6 Pro at $ 100, and you get some of the fastest cable charging available. It’s a bit of a pain point right now for the latest Pixels. Read our review.
In a world of tablets and accessories, Brydge makes all sorts of useful additions. Just today, Brydge has extended a 20 percent discount on most of its tablet keyboards and MacBooks vertical docks, and many of these deals can be found at Amazon and Best Buy.
Some key highlights from the Brydge series include the 10.2 Max Plus and Vertical Dock for the 13-inch MacBook Air. Brydge 10.2 Max Plus is a keyboard, touchpad and protective case for base model iPads. It’s currently $ 30 off at Best Buy and Amazon, hitting a new low ever.
Bridge’s vertical docking station for newer MacBook Air laptops is $ 40 off at Amazon and Best Buy, allowing you to better optimize the property on your desktop for $ 130 instead of the usual $ 170.
Finally, you have played Deathloop yet? None? Well, now it’s only $ 25 at GameStop for a brand new physical copy on PS5, so the excuses will be few and far between. We did not think that the hot choice for many critics’ play-of-the-year would be cheaper than the recently reduced price of $ 40, but here we are with a new all-time low, which is hard to miss.

Correction 19 November at 14:18 ET: An earlier version of this story said that the Amazon Kindle Paperwhite Kids Edition (2021) has wireless charging. It does not. It is a feature of the Kindle Paperwhite Signature Edition (2021). We apologize for the inconvenience.
