Black Friday 2019 – What to Expect
Last updated on Monday November 18, 2019: Black Friday deals on your favorite Sonos speakers are just around the corner. And although it’s still a little too early to know what’s officially coming, we’ve been tracking them long enough to have a pretty good idea on what you can expect. So what’s that, you ask? Let’s take a look!
Our Sonos Black Friday sale predictions for 2019:
- $25 off the Sonos One smart speaker. This is the speaker that has Amazon Alexa built into it.
- $50 off the new Sonos Beam (it normally retails for $399).
- $100.00 off Sonos SUB Wireless Subwoofer and CONNECT:AMP.
- Possibly $100 off Playbase and/or Playbar speakers. They’ve typically offered deals on these two speakers with the exception of last year (there were no deals at all!). We have our fingers crossed that these will be included in Sonos’s Black Friday sale this year.

Does Sonos ever go on sale?
Yes! Sonos is known for running a few sales per year when you shop their direct online store. Their major one is over Thanksgiving weekend but you’ll also run across a fun other sales throughout the year. It’s usually around Father’s Day/Graduation and often for a week or so in the Spring.
Will Sonos have Black Friday deals?
Another yes! Ever since we started tracking Sonos back in 2014, they’ve been running a Black Friday sale every single year. They almost always begin the sale on Thanksgiving day and run it through Cyber Monday. In recent years they have also expanded the offers internationally so folks residing in Sonos’s major markets (i.e. UK, France and Germany) can often take advantage of the sale. Just keep in mind that discount levels will be adjusted based on your local currency.
Is Sonos Playbar worth the money?
Most definitely if your an audiophile and love your music. Sonos is known for creating speakers with exceptional sound quality and clarity. Sonos also brings with it exceptional customer support and a two year warranty from the original purchase date in case something breaks. While there are plenty of low cost options on the market, if you’re planning on using your sound system often and plan on keeping it a while, then it’s one you should consider.
How much does a Sonos system cost?
A Sonos sound system ranges from just $298 for the two-speaker Play:1 set to about $1796 for their 5.1 Surround Set with Playbar and One. The great part of any Sonos system is that they are expandable and let you to add components later on. That means you can build out your sound system over time without having to pay for it all upfront.
Are sound bars worth it?
Televisions have become so thin lately that sound quality of the built-in speakers have suffered as a result. Most integrated TV speakers lack bass or produce distorted sound at higher output levels. Even an average-priced soundbar should bring a noticeable improvement to the sound quality of your movies and cable programing.
