It’s that time of the year again. Singles Day has just passed and it’s time for Black Friday deals! Black Friday is definitely a big deal in America, but it’s slowly rooting itself over here in Singapore as well and we’ve seen more and more retailers here start to offer excellent tech deals. Here are 10 great deals we’ve seen online.
1. Samsung 55-inch Ultra HD 4K Smart QLED TV (now S$1,899, UP S$2,999)
The bigger the better with televisions, and now you’ll be able to get a new 55-inch 4K Samsung television at under S$2000 at Courts. People looking to swap out their FHD televisions, don’t miss out on this pre-Black Friday deal!
2. Google Nest Hub (now S$119, UP S$189)
Homeowners looking to make their homes a little smarter will know how important voice assistant devices are. But sometimes, just getting information from a speaker might not always be the best to help remember details. With the Google Nest Hub’s screen available to display recipes, weather information and more, this is a great addition to any smart home setup. Get this deal at Courts.
3. Pokemon Sword & Shield (44% discount, UP S$89.90)
One of the biggest video game IPs, the new Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield were just released in November but they’re now going at a 44% discount over at Amazon. Time to get ready to catch ’em all and be the very best (Pokemon trainer).
4. JBL Control X Wireless Speaker (66% discount, UP S$799)
If you need new speakers that you can set up around the house without having to worry about wires, check out this great sale on JBL’s Control X Wireless Speakers over at Amazon that are battery-powered and can stream over Bluetooth. You can mount these on the wall, or just set them up wherever you please!
5. Playstation 4 Pro 1TB God of War & The Last of Us Remastered Bundle (now S$539, UP S$619)
Even though we know that the Playstation 5 is coming out next year, the current Playstation 4 Pro is still a beast of a console and for those who don’t require the latest and greatest, this is a great deal. The Last of Us and God of War are also both highly acclaimed games which will provide hours and hours of entertainment, so we highly recommend getting this if it ticks all your boxes. Get this deal at Shopee or other Playstation Authorised Dealers!

7. Seagate Backup Plus Slim 2TB Portable HDD (now S$109, UP S$189)
Backing up data is essential, but most people tend to overlook it because they don’t realise how easily data can be lost. With this Seagate Backup Plus Slim 2TB Portable HDD deal, now you have no excuse to not back up your important photos and documents!

9. Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless (now S$279, UP S$469)
We spoke about the great sound quality on the Momentum True Wireless in our review but felt that it was hindered by the poor battery life and high price. Well, one of those stumbling blocks is now gone, with these true wireless earphones now going for the lowest price we’ve seen on Qoo10!
10. Sony WF-1000XM3 (now S$249, UP S$359)
You can’t go wrong with Sony’s WF-1000XM3 if you’re looking for an all-rounder true wireless earphone that delivers great sound, decent battery life and excellent active noise cancellation. They’re now selling at a S$110 discount on Qoo10, which makes it as good a time as any to grab a pair.
With so many deals to go for, you’ll be spoilt for choice this Black Friday. Happy shopping!
