anker red

  • What's the deal? Take 25% off Anker accessories
  • Where can I get it? Anker
  • Where can I find the original deal? Right here

Anker is always a reliable source for deals throughout the year, and Black Friday season is definitely no different. The company is currently offering 25 percent off your entire order when you buy two or more accessories at once, as well as quite a few straight cash discounts without needing a bundle.

Apple Watch Series 9

  • What's the deal? Take $50 off Apple Watch Series 9
  • Where can I get it? Amazon
  • Where can I find the original deal? Right here

One great early Black Friday deal can be found on the new Apple Watch Series 9, which Amazon has for $50 off right now. This includes both GPS and cellular models, with prices now starting at $349.00 for 41mm GPS, a new record low price.

AirPods 2

  • What's the deal? Take $60 off AirPods 2
  • Where can I get it? Walmart
  • Where can I find the original deal? Right here

Walmart kicked off its Black Friday sale with a major discount on AirPods 2, now available for $69.00, down from $129.00. Amazon briefly matched this price, but we haven't seen it return in two days. This is a new all-time low price on the 2019 earbuds, and a great Black Friday deal.


homepods red

  • What's the deal? Take $20 off HomePod mini and $19 off HomePod (Gen 2)
  • Where can I get it? OWC and B&H Photo
  • Where can I find the original deal? Right here

Note: These are in new condition but come in bulk packaging.

Notable HomePod discounts have arrived for Black Friday, starting at $78.99 for the HomePod mini at OWC in new condition but in bulk packaging and with a 90 day OWC fulfilled limited warranty. This is a solid record low price on the mini smart speaker.

B&H Photo has the second generation HomePod for $279.99, which is another match of an all-time low price that's available in all colors.

You can find all the Apple Black Friday Deals currently available in our dedicated post.

The people at Anker have lost their minds, they sell chargers and some bundles are $184. They sell chargers.

None of these deals listed seem that great to me. Air pods 2? Those released in 2019. Anker's pricing seems to be inflated retail with "deals" to get it down to the usual pricing. I know the big brands do it too (looking at you, Bose), but we are talking early BLACK FRIDAY here. At least give us one GREAT anchor deal even if the rest are 'meh'.

I'm forever studying the English language, and have a question: Is the word "take" in each of those sentences necessary? Shouldn't it just be "What's the deal? $50 off Apple Watch Series 9" ... and so on?
Yes, it’s technically not needed.
Other options:
Get $20 off X
Save $20 off X
$20 off X
$20 savings on X

No joke.
I kinda like the ‘travel cube’ but not for $150 and it also lacks any pass through charging ports.
Anker quality seems to be a notch up from <random unknown China brand> but $150 for that?
Not happening - looks like no Anker BF buys + no Anker anything under the Xmas tree this year.

The people at Anker have also seemingly lost the ability to sell products on their website. I've been trying to order one of their 'mystery box' deals for the past week (using Apple Pay). Order is cancelled immediately. I've talked to their support folks - the best they can do is tell me to buy it on amazon or have a friend do it.

Kind of shocked, as Anker has been one of the most responsive companies I've dealt with...they've replaced cables - even out of warranty - in the past. It's crazy...multiple cards, multiple shipping addresses...nothing works and they don't seem to care. Still great products (for now). When support/service starts to tank like this, I always think that product quality can't be too far behind.

EDIT: used amazon pay and it worked. (huh?). FWIW, I've had the cube for almost a year and I've been really impressed with the quality...I travel a lot and like that it's a one plug option for my standard bedside stuff (at the price it's a splurge, but I don't regret the purchase).
