id="article-body" class="row" section="article-body"> This story is part of Holiday Gift Guide 2019, your source for the season's best gifts and deals, hand-picked by the experts at CNET. Black Friday arrives in just two days, but amazing deals on top tech products are already available now. Amazon gave us a preview of some of its Black Friday deals this week, and we'll continue adding more until 11:59 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 29. (And before you know it, Cyber Monday deals will kick off on Dec. 2.) Check out all the sales on Amazon's Black Friday page -- and keep that page and this one bookmarked, because we'll be regularly updating both. Amazon has already cut prices on several of its own media devices, including 50% off on the Fire TV Stick and Fire TV Stick 4K.

But that's just the beginning of Amazon's massive holiday deals -- you can also find sales right now on the Kindle Paperwhite and the Echo Show 8, as well as a long list of non-Amazon products like Apple's iPad 10.2. Sales on the Blink and Ring smart cameras are expected to start Wednesday, and the full Black Friday sale with all of Amazon's Echo devices begins Thursday at 12:01 a.m. PT. 

Don't forget: There are some undeniable advantages to being an Amazon Prime member during Black Friday shopping. And before you start shopping, check out my advice on how to save an extra 10% to 20% at Amazon to learn some of the Amazon-specific cash-back tricks that I've recently discovered. 

So without further ado, let's look at the best deals popping over at Amazon right now.

Other Amazon Black Friday deals available now

As expected, some of the best early discounts are on Amazon devices (though some of the items below may be even cheaper next week). But I found a few noteworthy non-Amazon deals as well, so check those out, too.

AirPods Pro: $235

Sarah Tew/CNET Released in early November, the AirPods Pro are available for a cheaper price. Regularly priced at $250, the small discount for the noise-canceling earbuds is great for those needing to upgrade their previous AirPods or those who want to dive into a truly wireless audio experience. Note that these keep going in and out of "backordered" status, but right now there appears to be no delay in shipping. Read our AirPods Pro review.

$697 at Amazon Sony WH-1000XM3 headphones: $278
You save: $72
Sony While Sony's WH-1000XM3 noise-canceling headphones showed up to party at $228 very briefly last week, we can't be sure that wasn't just a pricing error rather than a deliberate effort to undercut Bose. Nonetheless, it's now priced at $278, and we'd be surprised if it went any lower before the holidays. There's little doubt that these excellent-sounding headphones are the ones to beat right now, tour bắc kinh thượng hải giá rẻ which is great, since they're priced about the same as its chief competitor, the Bose QuietComfort 35 II.

This deal had expired, but it's back -- available now.

That's even lower than its September sale price of $998. You'll get 4K HDR, a nice 65-inch display and smarts for Apple HomeKit, AirPlay and Alexa and Google voice commands. We haven't reviewed this model yet, but CNET's David Katzmaier loved its 2018 predecessor. Need an even bigger screen? There's also an option to purchase the 75-inch model for $1,498, an $800 discount.

Bose QuietComfort 35 II Wireless Bluetooth Headphones: tour bắc kinh thượng hải $279 (Expired)
You save: $70
Bose Sure, there's an avalanche of competition out there, with more noise cancelling headphones than you can soundlessly shake a stick at. But Bose always seems to lead the pack with superb comfort, noise cancelling, and overall sound quality. Right now, you can get Bose QuietComfort 35 II Wireless Bluetooth Headphones for $70 off at Amazon. If you don't care about getting a dedicated Google Assistant button, you can still find otherwise identical, refurbished copies of the original Bose QuietComfort 35 headphones at Amazon as well. That said, the price has been fluctuating a bit -- we saw the QuietComfort 35 II for as low as $235 recently, so there might still be some surprises between now and Black Friday. But you certainly shouldn't pay more than $279 if you're in the market between now and the new year.

Note: This deal will return by Black Friday. Read our Bose QuietComfort 35 II review.
