Speakers today are a marvel for their portability and sound quality. No longer do we need giant boxes to bring down the house — a speaker that can fit in your hand can fill a room with your favorite music. This is even more important when you pair it with your smartphone, and there are lots of smartphone-friendly speakers on sale this Black Friday.
We’ve rounded up the best deals we could find for the Black Friday shopping holiday below, focusing primarily on the best speakers for your iPhone or Android phone. There are lots of great deals here, and we’ll be sure to add more when we find them.
Best Buy has it all, as far as speakers are concerned. If you’re looking for something smarter than your average boom box, Best Buy has deals on both Google Home and Amazon Echo devices, as well as their own Insignia brand of smart speakers.
If you aren’t in the market for a smart speaker, no worries — Best Buy has plenty of standard speakers for you to check out. There are good deals on Sony, JBL, Insignia, and JAM portable speakers, among others.
Target actually carries the same Amazon Echo deals as Best Buy, with the exception of the Amazon Echo Plus. If you have your eyes set on one of those, you’ll have to go with Best Buy.
Like Best Buy, Target also carries Google Home devices for the same amount, however, they also will have a sale on the Google Home Mini along with a $10 Target gift card, which gives you more flexibility with your smart speaker purchases.
For more conventional speakers, Target lists deals on JBL, Ultimate Ears, Altec Lansing, and a few more brands. There are plenty of deals to be found here.
Costco‘s speaker selection is a little on the light side, however, that doesn’t mean you’ll walk away empty-handed. If you’re looking for Google Home devices, you should definitely check out Costco. You can get up to three Google Home two-packs for a decent price, so if you know multiple people who want a Google Home this year, Costco might be your best bet.
Option 4: Sears’s Speaker Deals
Like Costco, Sears is a little short on speaker supply. However, the retailer is promoting the Altec Lansing Mini Lifejacket 2 Bluetooth speaker for half of its original cost. Target does offer that same deal, however, so you might want to consider Sears only if this store is more convenient for you.
While traditional speakers may be scare in Kmart’s Black Friday sale, you can pick up a soundbar if you happen to find yourself in the store. The Samsung soundbar Kmart is promoting is $80 off, and you will receive $20 of in-store cashback credit. If you don’t mind the lack of portability, this might not be such a bad deal.
NewEgg definitely has more headphone options than speakers. However, if you’re thinking about finding a good deal on a Klipsch speaker, NewEgg might be the spot for you. You can get $90 off a Klipsch KMC1 speaker or $72 off a Klipsch GiG speaker through NewEgg.
