When will the Black Friday gaming monitor deals start?

The Black Friday gaming monitor deals are going to kick off on November 25 this year. It's always that Friday after Thanksgiving, so at least we can prepare for the date in advance. As ever though, we are likely to see deals coming thick and fast before the big day itself - get in position to pull any triggers at least a week before, and perhaps even earlier.

Black Friday gaming monitor deals: What to expect

The main thing to expect with Black Friday gaming monitor deals is a significant amount of money off of some of the biggest brands out right now. In the past, we've seen the likes of the massive Samsung CRG9 having more than $300 taken off its price, and then this was bettered last year by the Odyssey G9 having $500 taken off its price. We'd expect such big-name ranges to get the same treatment in this year's Black Friday Samsung deals

Dell is always a great shout too, and we have big hopes for the QD-OLED Alienware AW3423DW to get its first big price cut. And Dell has form in chopping the price of its biggest and best, for example, we have seen the Alienware AW3420DW have its MSRP slashed from $1,520 all the way down to $1,012.71 - for a total saving of $507.28. 

As an example of a great budget screen to look out for, our favourite budget monitor, the AOC 24G2 took a big hit last year and became even more affordable - it dropped from its MSRP of $250 (some say $230) to just $170 in last year's deals, and the nit went down to just $157 in the summer Prime Day event. We'd expect at least the former to happen again, and maybe the latter. At $150 this monitor is a total bargain.

Stepping into mid-range, great-for-almost-everything territory, the ASUS TUF Gaming VG27AQ is one of best recommendations for an all-round gaming monitor. This received its first big price drop in 2021's Black Friday gaming monitor deals taking $70 or $80 off its price tag. Now that the list price has seemingly levelled out at $300, we expect this to drop to $250 at least.

Looking to go big? It might pay to keep an eye on the Acer CG7 (the CG437K P model). This variant (it's had a slight refresh - the refresh is the CG437K S - absolutely embraced the sales last year, dropping $200 from the price it was before the madness began - and we've since seen it drop lower than that too. Currently, at $1,389, we're expecting that to drop big, potentially to beneath four figures. The refresh model is beneath that mark right now but only went there recently - this should hold for the deals next month. As we continue to brows the history and the markets of our favorites, we'll add some more expectations right here.

Should I wait for the Black Friday gaming monitor deals?

This is a firm and wholehearted 'yes' right now. As we are only two weeks away (at time of writing) from the Black Friday gaming deals starting properly and on the day, there's only a small number of reasons to commit to one now - otherwise, we should all wait.

In brief, we just know for a fact that the best and lowest prices will be on Black Friday itself (and then on the weekend, into Cyber Monday). Despite longer stretches of deals now, retailers do seem to keep the best for the day itself. If you want the best possible or potential deal, you have to wait. Otherwise, you could be in line for some buyer's remorse if you go now and then get outdone in a couple of weeks or days.

Alternatively, we could see a scenario where you go early and that would be if you literally needed something urgently, or perhaps if you found a really terrific deal that was so low (or Black Friday guaranteed - where you'd get refunded the difference if it does go lower). Or more philosophically, if you're OK with spending a bit more but want to ensure you get the stock and can't be bothered with the fuss of the madness.

For the lowest prices, wait; but to just get it over with and guarantee your new screen early, go soon.

Where will the best Black Friday gaming monitors deals be?

There's little debate that Amazon and Dell lead the charge when it comes to some of the deeper Black Friday gaming monitor deals available, though big-box stores have been catching up in recent years; Best Buy and Walmart have offered their fair share of savings on premium panels, too.
