Most of what’s listed below should look familiar if you’ve already been shopping online throughout the past week — especially since standouts like Apple’s latest AirPods Pro have been on sale for nearly a week — but keep in mind there will likely be several adjustments taking place throughout the weekend as we approach the official kickoff to Cyber Week.
