Shopping when you’re hungry can cause you to buy a lot of unnecessary things. An air fryer is not one of those things.

If you’ve had an air fryer on your list of items to grab this holiday season, you don’t have to wait until the clock strikes Black Friday. Best Buy decided it was starting Black Friday a week early and now has all the air fryers in its Black Friday ad at their Black Friday prices. Walmart has been dropping pre-Black Friday sales for a minute, and though not everything from the ad scan is at its Black Friday price yet (like the 6-quart Instant Vortex), other big-name items that rarely see a discount are on sale (like the 10-quart Instant Vortex Plus).

Now, listen up. We don’t want you to get sucked in to a deal that seems too good to be true (because if it seems that way, it probably is). If you see that an air fryer is listed for hundreds of dollars and is on sale for less than $100, your deal-sniffing nose should let you know that’s a little fishy. Always check the original MSRP from the brand’s official website if you can.

Even if the list price is inflated, it can still be a good deal. For example, Amazon has the Philips Starfish Technology 2.75-quart air fryer listed at $249, but the actual MSRP is $129. A discounted price of $89 is still a decent deal — even if it’s not as good as it’s being presented.

Not every big discount is a scam, though. The Bella Pro Series 10.5-quart digital air fryer and convection oven actually is $60 off at Best Buy for Black Friday — that’s more than $25 cheaper than at Amazon.

Aside from the few stores that have the same deals, these are the lowest prices on these models that we can find on the internet right now.


Most of these have free two-day delivery and some are eligible for next-day delivery if you order by 4 pm — just in time to tide you over until that Thanksgiving feast.


There’s just something about Prime shipping that feels more reliable than the rest, right?

Best Buy

Playing by the rules? Never heard of it. Best Buy announced over the the weekend of Nov. 23 that it was officially starting Black Friday, and a ton of deals from its Black Friday ad are now live.


Red Card holders save an extra 5% on everything, and select grocery and home items are eligible for same-day shipping.


Kohl’s has really stepped up its game this season. If you can ignore the fact that most air fryers “on sale” only look like they’re on sale because Kohl’s has inflated the original price, there are some genuinely good deals snuck in there. You can even save an extra 15% with code GIVETHANKS.
