Save big on Samsung Galaxy phones, tablets, and more during #BlackFriday

It has been a banner year for Samsung, between the camera prowess of the Galaxy S21 Ultra, the more polished foldable experience on the Galaxy Z Flip 3 and Fold 3, and the launch of the first smartwatch with Wear OS 3, the Galaxy Watch 4. So whether you're looking for new earbuds or a great deal on one of the best Android phones, Black Friday always brings tremendous deals to every segment, and we're here to help you find the best one for you and your family members.

While supply issues might make some smartphone deals more elusive than in previous years, there are a few perennial deals and plenty of bundles hoping to sweeten the pot this Black Friday. Tablets are another area we expect Samsung to offer bountiful discounts in, and Galaxy earbuds will drop from good prices down to "what the heck are you waiting for" territory before the turkey leftovers are demolished.

Black Friday Samsung Galaxy deals: Smartphones

Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3

From $22/month at Walmart

The Galaxy Z Flip 3 features the same caliber of hardware as the Galaxy S21+, but the foldable design makes it much more portable. More than anything else, it's fun to close the screen when you're done using the phone. Combine that with the hardware and the fact that you get a $500 gift card from Walmart, and this is easily one of the best phone deals you'll find today.

Samsung Galaxy S21 series (save up to $200)

Featuring the vividly colorful 120Hz screens, phenomenal cameras, and Samsung's uniquely polished One UI software — which will be getting Android 12 soon — the Galaxy S21 is an excellent phone with three more years of security updates ahead of it. Get $25-$50 instant credit on top of the $100-$200 instant rebate.

From $600 at Samsung

Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra

Save up to $330 at Samsung

Pick up Samsung's latest Galaxy Note 20 Ultra to get a powerhouse phone at $100 off while getting a free Chromebook 4 at the same time — does it get any better?

Ah, the Galaxy Z Fold 3 and the Galaxy Z Flip 3. The eye-catching foldable phones have been out for four months now and could see some discounts, but I wouldn't expect to see the Galaxy Z Flip 3 break the $800 barrier or the Z Fold 3 to descend past $1,300. Samsung currently has $100 off the Flip and $250 off the Fold, and it likely won't go much lower than that outside carrier deals, but the trade-in program Samsung offers can bring those prices much, much further down.

Every Black Friday for the last half-decade has seen buy-one-get-one-free deals for that year's Galaxy S model on every major carrier, and for those looking to buy a single phone, discounts of $200-$300 are common. Despite the Galaxy S21 being impossible to keep in stock for other retailers — and even some carriers — Samsung has it $100 off right now, and AT&T will let you get it for free when you trade in a qualifying phone (even a Galaxy S8+ gets the full $800 credit).

The better deals this year for the S series might actually be for older generations like the S20 series and S20 FE, which should go under $500 at least. Moving over to the A-series, the A52 spent this summer at $400, so wait for it to drop to $400 or $35. Likewise, look for the A32 5G to drop under $200 and the A42 5G under $300, and both are heavily subsidized when purchased through your carrier.

Black Friday Samsung Galaxy deals: Wearables

The only Samsung smartwatches you should buy this Black Friday are the Galaxy Watch 4 and the Galaxy Watch 4 Classic. While deals might surface for the Galaxy Watch 3, the 4 Classic will still be a better value, has wider app support, and has a longer support life ahead of it.

You can already find the Galaxy Watch 4 for $200 and the Watch 4 Classic for $300 — $50 off — but I'm expecting another $30-$60 to get lopped off. When checking deals, you might want to start at Samsung's website, as they've been matching or beating Amazon's deals thus far and they offer trade-in value if you give them an old wearable. Most of the trade-in values are low, but something is better than nothing for a watch you won't be wearing anymore.

Oh, and the Galaxy Watch Active 2 is less than 9 months from the end of its updates and support window. So unless you are just obsessed with its small size, I'd skip it for the Watch 4, which is only a little bit bigger and will last a lot longer.

Samsung Galaxy Watch 4

From $199 at Walmart (40mm) From $229 at Walmart (44mm)

You'll get the cheapest prices if you opt for either the 40mm or 44mm variant of the aluminum Galaxy Watch 4. There's only a $30 price difference between the two, so most people will likely want to go for the larger display and choose the 44mm model.

Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 Classic

From $299 at Walmart (42mm) From $329 at Walmart (46mm)

If you prefer a premium design with a traditional aesthetic, you might be drawn to the stainless steel Galaxy Watch 4 Classic models. Again, there's only a $30 price difference between them. If you want to go big or go home, the 46mm is the best pick.

Black Friday Samsung Galaxy deals: Tablets

The Galaxy Tab S7 series is a year old and while last Black Friday only brought it down to the $550 range, this premium, powerhouse tablet is already down to $500 and will likely go lower the closer we get to Black Friday. While you have to pay extra for a kickstand, cover, or keyboard, the Tab S7 is a good tablet right now that might get amazing next year once Android 12L launches for foldables and tablets.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S7

$499 at Amazon

Thanks to its Snapdragon 865+ processor with 6GB of RAM, 11-inch LCD with 120Hz refresh rate, 8,000mAh battery, quad speakers, and 45W fast charging, the Galaxy Tab S7 has all the premium features you could want at a mid-range price.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 Plus

From $699 at Amazon

Upgrade to a 12.4-inch AMOLED display for the best visual quality for all your streaming, gaming, and productivity needs. It also gives you a larger 10,090 mAh battery and in-screen fingerprint sensor, though the processor and RAM are the same. It's a premium device at a lower price than usual.

The Galaxy Tab S7 FE is hovering around $430 right now, but breaking down under $400 is all but guaranteed. While not as powerful as the S7 and S7+, it still boasts an excellent screen for Android gaming or weekend binges in bed. If you're wanting a leisure tablet, I'd pay closer attention to S7 FE deals this Black Friday.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 FE

From $430 at Amazon (4GB/64GB)

The 2021 Fan Edition tablet isn't as fast as the other S7 tablets, but it has a massive 12.4-inch display for much less than the smaller S7, plus amazing battery life. The best discount is on the model with 6GB of RAM, which will help the mid-range tablet handle more processor-intensive tasks like DeX mode.

Samsung's more budget-minded Tab A-series like the Galaxy Tab A7 Lite and S6 have also started to get some good Black Friday discounts. Just keep in mind the minimal RAM these tablets tend to have and be mindful of that if you intend to try any sort of gaming or video-calling. But they'll match (or beat) what you'd get with an Amazon Fire tablet, plus give you better apps and software.

Samsung Galaxy Tab A7 Lite

$130 at Best Buy (64GB model, $70 off) $120 at Best Buy (32GB model, $40 off)

With an 8.7-inch display, quad Dolby Atmos speakers, 3GB RAM, 1TB of expandable storage, a durable 5,100mAh battery, and relatively lightweight 13oz design, the Galaxy Tab A7 Lite is a truly quality device that's especially attractive at this low Black Friday price.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Lite

$250 at Best Buy ($100 off, 64GB model) $300 at Best Buy ($130 off, 128GB model)

This tablet skirts the mid-range line between affordable and higher-end tablets. It's more expensive than the Tab A series, but it gives you much more screen space and better performance, making it more likely to give you plenty of longevity. And at $100 to $130 off, it's not that much more expensive.

Black Friday Samsung Galaxy deals: Chromebooks

The two generations of the Samsung Galaxy Chromebook are primed for deals this Black Friday, and in fact the originally Samsung Galaxy Chromebook is already $300 off at Amazon. Featuring a gorgeous 4K AMOLED touchscreen , the Galaxy Chromebook works hard and plays harder, and while the Galaxy Chromebook 2 will likely drop to the $400-$500 range per model, $700 for the original and that oh-so-lovely screen is the better deal to be had. Just be mindful that the bottom of this fanless laptop can warm up a bit during long sessions.

Samsung Galaxy Chromebook

Whether you want the latest specs for your work or the best screen around for watching movies, this gives you both. While the newer Galaxy Chromebook 2 is also $700, it has less power and a lower-resolution screen, so stick with the OG.

$692 at Amazon

Samsung Chromebook 4

It may not be the newest Chromebook on the block, but it's a great fit for strapped budgets and casual computing. With up to 12 hours of battery life and 4GB of RAM, the Chromebook 4 is great for homework, writing, everyday computing, and lightweight travel.

$129 at Walmart

Samsung Chromebook 4+

$209 at Walmart

Using standard 45W USB-C Power Delivery Charging and the same software and features as Chromebooks twice its price, the Samsung Chromebook 4+ can feel like a steal, but the lackluster screen spoils the experience for weaker, older eyes. 4GB of RAM combine with the Celeron N4000 for easy homework but not easy video calls with the whole class.

Black Friday Samsung Galaxy deals: Earbuds

Samsung's many wireless earbuds are among the best on the market, and they're all primed for deep discounts. The best Samsung earbuds, the Galaxy Buds Pro, launched alongside the Galaxy S21 in January, and just as you could get them free with an S21 at launch, I expect to see them bundled with some Galaxy smartphone deals. If you're happy with your current phone, though, we're already seeing the Buds Pro for $50 off or more at some retailers. Samsung's website will even trade in an old pair of earbuds for up to $50 off, giving you the Buds Pro for 50% off. The Buds Pro are a steal if you can get them for $120 or less: they're comfy enough to wear for hours, ANC adequately blocks out the world in most environments, and the microphones inside sound better than earbuds twice the price.

The newer but not-quite-as-durable Galaxy Buds 2 has already been seeing sales and instant rebates bringing it down from $150 to $130 — Samsung has them for $120, plus up to another $40 off for your old earbuds — and I wouldn't be surprised to see sales that bring the Buds 2 to $75 around Black Friday weekend.

While the Galaxy Buds Live — yes, the ones shaped like beans — are super-duper comfortable, the Galaxy Buds Pro stay in better, sound much better, and ANC on the Live is lackluster due to the minimal design. Unless you just adore the Mystic Red colorway or it drops under $85, the deals on the Buds Pro make them a better value and better overall product.

The battery champ of the bunch are the Galaxy Buds+, but they're almost two years old and they were going for around $50 last Black Friday. There's better bargains, but if you dig the Buds+ colors or that 11-hour continuous use battery life, I'd wait till they hit $60 or less to pull the trigger.

Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro (Save $50-$100)

Samsung already has a $50 discount gong for the best earbuds they've ever made, but with Samsung's recycling program, you can lop off another $30-$50. Trade in literally any pair of wireless or wired headphones or earbuds and get $30 off, and you get $50 off if you trade in a pair of Galaxy Buds Live or Galaxy Buds+. Promo code credit from buying a Samsung phone or watch earlier this fall can apply to this deal, too, if you haven't spent yours yet!

From $100 at Samsung

Samsung Galaxy Buds 2 (save $40)

The Galaxy Buds 2 offer the best of Samsung's wireless earbuds in an affordable package. They sound fantastic, tune out noise in your vicinity, last the same amount of time as the Buds Pro, and include wireless charging. For what you're ultimately paying here, you are getting a great value.

$110 at Amazon

Samsung Galaxy Buds Live (save $70)

$100 at Amazon

Samsung's Galaxy Buds Live deliver incredible sound backed by an ergonomic fit, active noise cancellation, and IPX2 dust and water resistance. They last six hours between charges, include wireless charging, and are a great overall option.

Samsung Galaxy Buds+ (save $70)

$79 at Walmart

The Galaxy Buds+ continue to deliver when it comes to sound quality, and with a 11-hour battery life, you can wear these throughout the day and not have to worry about running out of charge.

Where to find the best Black Friday Samsung Galaxy deals

Samsung Galaxy deals will pop up in every retailer and carrier store this Black Friday — mostly for its phones, but deals for the LTE-enabled watches and tablets are common as well — while earbud and Bluetooth watches/tablets are more common at the big four retailers. However, if you want to see deals on all Samsung products, your first stop should be Samsung's own website. This is because Samsung offers trade-in for everything from tablets to phones to earbuds, letting you save on top of the instant rebates and bundles Samsung has on tap.

When do the Black Friday Samsung Galaxy deals begin?

While everything starts really heating up around November 21st — the Sunday before Black Friday — for everything but smartphones, deals are already flowing. I expect the discounts on tablets and earbuds to stay about where they are between now and Thanksgiving, though the Galaxy Watch 4 might get some more deals.

Smartphone deals will start ramping up around November 25 and stick around through Cyber Monday, if they don't sell out first. I expect deals on the S21 series to go fast, so if that's what you're looking to buy, be ready to pounce when deals arrive.

Apple Has 'Very Serious' DMA Issues, EU to Enforce Rules 'Soon'

Apple is facing a "number" of "very serious" issues with its Digital Markets Act compliance in Europe, EU competition commissioner Margrethe Vestager said in an interview with CNBC . The European Commission opened an investigation into Apple in March to determine if Apple's EU app marketplace changes were complying with DMA regulations. The DMA requires Apple to provide developers with an option to distribute apps outside of the App Store and without ‌App Store‌'s fees. Apple implemented support for app marketplaces with iOS 17.4, but it charges an 0.50 euro Core Technology Fee for each download after the initial 1 million annual installs. Vestager does not believe that Apple's changes meet the requirements of the DMA. "We have a number of Apple issues; I find them very serious," she said. "I was very surprised that we would have such suspicions of Apple being non-compliant." She went on to say that this implementation "

U.S. Government Sues Adobe for Hidden Termination Fees When Canceling Subscription

The United States Department of Justice and the Federal Trade Commission today levied a lawsuit against Adobe [ PDF ] for imposing a hidden termination fee on subscribers who want to cancel their Adobe plans. Adobe is accused of forcing subscribers to "navigate a complex and challenging cancellation process designed to deter them from cancelling subscriptions they no longer wanted." Adobe offers its Creative Cloud products on a subscription basis, with fees that are paid monthly. A monthly payment suggests that it's possible to cancel anytime, but that's not how Adobe works because most customers are actually locked into a hidden annual agreement. Customers who sign up for a free trial and are then charged and signed up to the default Creative Cloud plan, which is actually an annual contract. Canceling the annual contract requires customers to pay a lump sum of 50 percent of the "remaining contractual obligation" to cancel, despite the fact that servic
