A lot of Black Friday deals are going live early, but whether they were included in a leaked ad or not, these are the 10 best discounts we saw today.
Head over to our main post for more deals, and follow us on Twitter and Facebook to never miss a chance to save. You can also join our Kinja Deals Community Facebook group to connect with your fellow deal hunters.
#1: Clear the Rack
Yes, it’s already happening again. Nordstrom Rack has brought back their Clear the Rack sale and it’s full (and I mean FULL) of really incredible deals. Designer clothing, brands you’ve never heard of, everything in clearance an extra 25% off. This lasts through Sunday, so you have a good amount of time to pick up some discounts.
#2: Philips Hue Starter Kit
If you’re intrigued by the idea of Philips Hue smart lighting, but don’t particularly care about dramatic, colorful light shows in your living room, the Hue White starter kit is exactly what you need, and it’s $40 off today.
The kit comes with four bulbs and a Hue Bridge to control them (plus up to 46 other Hue products, so you can add more as time goes on). The lhese bulbs don’t change colors, or even color temperatures, but you can turn them on or off, and dim them from your phone or with a voice assistant. You probably already have at least an Echo Dot lying around by now, and smart lighting is one of the things it does best.
This kit legitimately usually sells for $100, and the Bridge by itself typically costs about $50, so this is a hell of a deal.
The Philips Hue Lightstrip Plus is also on sale.
#3: DJI Spark
DJI’s Spark is the most exciting new drone of the year. It’s roughly the size and weight of those cheap toy drones you see out there, but with significantly better flight time and performance, an automatic follow-me mode, and most crucially of all, a gimbal-stabilized 1080p camera that shoots some seriously great footage.
It was already a bargain at its $500 launch price, but DJI Spark, Portable Mini Drone, Alpine WhiteDJI Spark, Portable Mini Drone, Alpine Whiteits Black Friday deal just went live early, bringing it down to $400, so go earn your wings.
#4: Instant Pot
If you don’t own a pressure cooker, today’s a great day to fix that, as Amazon’s knocked the highly-rated Instant Pot IP-DUO60 down to $80, matching the price we’ve seen in multiple Black Friday ads. While that’s not as good as a one-day $70 deal they ran at the beginning of October, it’s still $20 less than usual, and a great chance to save if you want to use it to help cook Thanksgiving dinner.
If you’re worried that you won’t get a ton of use out of this thing, note that in addition to standard pressure cooking, this is also our readers’ favorite slow cooker, and one of their favorite rice cookers too. To put a fine point on it: It’s one of the most versatile kitchen gadgets you can own. Even if you already have one, I don’t need to tell you that these make great gifts, and the holidays are just around the corner.
#5: 70" TV
If you’ve been saving your nickels for a big TV purchase this Black Friday, you don’t necessarily have to wait until the end of the month. This 70" 4K Sony is already down to its Black Friday pricing of $1198, an all-time low by about $300.
This set is on the low end of Sony’s current lineup, so you’re not getting features like local dimming or Dolby Vision HDR here, but if you’d rather invest in having a huge TV than having the absolute best image quality, it’s still a great deal.

#6: Sony Sound bar
I sound like a broken record at this point, but here’s yet another early Black Friday deal. This 2.1 channel Sony sound bar includes a wireless subwoofer, a voice-boosting mode, and a night mode that lowers the bass and produces clearer sound at lower volumes. $148 is the same price we expect to see for the holidays, and is an all-time low by about $50.
#7: Anker PowerPort 4
The wall charger that came with your phone just doesn’t cut it while traveling these days. In addition to probably being slow as hell, you likely have at least two or three USB-powered devices that you’ll want to charge every night while you sleep.
Luckily, Anker stuffed four USB ports and 40W of power into a tiny travel charger (with folding AC prongs!), and you can get it for $19 today with promo code AAAA2142.
#8: Bose Noise-Cancelling Headphones
We don’t post a lot of wired headphones anymore, but we’ll make an exception for Bose’s iconic QuietComfort noise cancelling cans.
Both the Apple and Android version are marked down to $179 right now, an all-time low, $100 less than usual, and a match for what expect to see on Black Friday. If it wasn’t already clear, Black Friday has already started this year.
#9: A Cordless Vacuum
It’s 2017, and your vacuum shouldn’t have a cord anymore. The Hoover Linx Signature features an 18-volt battery, a motorized brush that you can turn on and off, and a low profile to get under furniture, all for an all-time low price of $90. Just note that this is a Gold Box deal, so be sure to get yours before they’re all vacuumed up.
#10: Our Favorite Men’s Shirts
Update: Sold out on Amazon, but the code is also valid on Newbury Mills’ own site.
Newbury Mills has quickly become one of our favorite shirt makers, with offerings that can be dressed up or down, worn tucked or untucked, and with or without a tie. They also resist wrinkles well and are 100% soft SUPIMA cotton. Our readers can grab three for $99, plus additional shirts for $33 each. Considering one shirt is normally priced over $80, this is a great opportunity to upgrade your entire wardrobe. Just be sure to add at least three to your cart (you can mix and match styles), and use promo code kinja330 at checkout to get the deal.
