Best Buy kicked off its first early Black Friday sale this morning, and as luck would have it, Amazon’s matching a number of the deals. Yes, we’re aware that we still have a few days left in October, but many retailers are ushering in the holiday shopping season early. Really, it began with Amazon Prime Day a few weeks ago and now we’re seeing more and more deals pop up each week. In addition to Amazon matching some of Best Buy’s top sales, it’s also discounted most of its Echo Show and Fire TV devices in honor of Alexa’s birthday. Check out the list below for all of the Amazon-matched deals, plus a couple of discounts we could only find at Amazon.

Sony WH-1000XM4 — $278

Our favorite pair of wireless ANC headphones is down to a new all-time low. Sony’s WH-1000XM4 headphones are $278 right now, which is $72 off their normal price. We gave these cans a score of 94 for improving upon the already stellar XM3s — the XM4s have great sound quality with even better noise-cancellation chops, multi-device connectivity and a feature that automatically pauses sound when you start speaking.

Jabra’s Elite Active 75t earbuds are some of the best you can get if you’re an athlete or someone who exercises regularly. They’re compact, lightweight, compatible with a number of virtual assistants and long-lasting with at least 7.5 hours of battery life — and that’s before employing the extra juice in its carrying case. This sale drops them to $150, which is $50 off their normal price.

Sony’s solid ZV-1 vlogging camera is $100 off, bringing it down to $700. We gave this camera a score of 88 for its compact design, fast autofocus, fully articulating screen and its solid build-in microphone. It’s a good option for those interesting in giving the YouTube world a try, or just those who want a step up from their smartphone’s camera.
