It’s almost time to stuff our faces with delicious food with family and friends this Thanksgiving...which means it’s also almost time to shop for some major sales! We all know the accounting version of Black Friday this time of year happens in September and October. This is the season for gratitude and we’re grateful those deadlines are in the rearview mirror. Now that it’s time to sit back and enjoy the holiday season, take a look at our picks for the greatest Black Friday deals for accountants in 2021.
Black Friday for accountants
Smart watches are a great way to stay connected without having to pull out your phone and check every notification. You can see texts and other notifications come in on your watch. Now, if you’re in a meeting and get a message, a quick glance at your wrist can let you know if it’s worth your time or if you know you’ll be okay to respond later. They’re also beneficial for tracking exercise and staying in shape—something that can be difficult when working an office job.
If you have an iPhone, you’ll want to get an Apple Watch. This year, you can find the Series 3 watch at Walmart for just $109. Usually, the gadget is closer to $200.
If you’re an android user, a Fitbit Versa 2 might be a good option for you. This Black Friday, you can find the watch for $119, which is originally for sale for $179. The Fitbit Charge 4 is also available at Walmart for $69, originally $129.

Everyone knows that in the modern workplace, headphones are a necessity. Whether it’s for a remote meeting or to tune out your noisy office, they make work life a lot easier. Especially in the era of remote working, having a solid pair of headphones or earbuds is crucial. If you already have headphones (which, who doesn’t at this point!?) you might want to consider investing in the next level of headphones: noise cancelling buds. If you want to really focus at work, noise cancelling headphones might be a great option for you. Now’s the time to buy, since there are some good sales available this week.
At Walmart, noise cancelling Beats Solo Pro Wireless Headphones are available for $99, a whole $50 less than their original price.
Apple AirPods Pro, which are also noise cancelling, are also on sale for $159, down from their nearly $200 original price tag.
If you’re looking for a cheaper option, True Wireless noise cancelling earbuds might be for you. Typically sold at $49, this Black Friday they will be for sale for just $29.

Keyboard and mouse
Having a wireless keyboard and mouse can drastically improve your workflow. Dealing with wires is something no one wants to do anymore. If you’re in the market for a new keyboard and mouse, you can save $21 at Best Buy with the Microsoft wireless keyboard and mouse set for $29.
If you’re looking to upgrade your entire desk set-up, this deal available at Walmart might be for you. The Razer four-piece bundle comes with a BlackShark V2 headset, DeathAdder Essential mouse, Cynosa Lite keyboard, and mouse pad all for just $79. We know this set is being marketed for gaming fanatics, but accountants still need a solid set up for their work as well. So, if you’re looking for a new mouse, keyboard and headset (which are great for remote meetings) then this bundle is for you.

We all have many devices that we work on. From our phone to our laptops and tablets, our work lives are filled with devices that need to be charged. If you find your desk getting cluttered with cords and chargers, it might be time to set up a charging station. Now is the time to find great deals on different chargers.
If you need to charge your phone on the go, then you’ll want a power bank. This 20K power bank available at Walmart is originally $30 but on sale for $12.
Having to plug in your devices can be a hassle. If you grab a wireless charging pad, like this 10W option on sale at Walmart for just $13, then you’ll just have to throw your device on it and be good to go.

Tablets, like iPads, are a great way to stay organized without the hassle of a laptop and the small screen of a phone. If you’re looking to buy one, there are some deals available for you.
At Staples, Apple’s fifth generation iPad Pro is on sale for $699, lower than the original price of $700.
If you’re not into Apple products, at Best Buy, there is a Lenovo Tablet available for $199, a $60 discount from its original price.
