When is Black Friday?
Always falling on the Friday after Thanksgiving, this year Black Friday will be November 24. That's just the official date, however, and if you've been noticing the trend over the past few years, Black Friday sales have actually been starting much earlier.
Unofficially, Black Friday sales started in early October with Amazon's Prime Big Deal Days event, which was essentially a second Prime Day that kicked off the holiday shopping season with many of the deals you'll find over the coming weeks. However, expect most retailers to start their official Black Friday sales early in November.
Where to find the best Black Friday audio deals
Black Friday deals on headphones, earbuds, and speakers will be available just about anywhere they are sold, and in most cases, a deal you'll find at one retailer will be available at another for the same price. This is because most brands give these retailers a set deal price ahead of time, and require that each retailer adhere to this deal price.
There are some instances, however, where a retailer may be able to go a bit cheaper depending on how they purchased their inventory, but these types of deals are usually held until Black Friday weekend. This usually happens at big box retailers like Amazon and Best Buy, but don't skip out on audio specialists like Crutchfield, you never know what they have in store for the holiday weekend.
