Although there are plenty of good deals that are not limited to Black Friday, there are still some crazy deals to be had, especially when it comes to items like home appliances and electronics.
Black Friday is a staple of American culture. Completely crazy and sometimes worth it, this date is one that many people treasure but that has kind of gone out of style.
The rise of online retail and a habit of getting everything you want from the comfort of your home have made people less tolerant long lines or of getting up at the crack of dawn to go to a store.
Although times have changed and there are plenty of good deals that are not limited to Black Friday, there are still some crazy deals to be had, especially when it comes to items like home appliances and electronics.
Here are some items that should get the best Black Friday deals:
Video games & consoles
Video game gear is expensive, with consoles almost never having meaningful offers. While you might get to see discounts on video games, especially if they’re not new releases, Black Friday provides plenty of opportunities for bundles on games, consoles, gaming gear, and more. It’s also important to mention that new generations of the PlayStation and the Xbox are on their way, meaning that you’ll probably find some sweet deals on older models.
Smart home devices
Amazon’s devices get tons of discounts for Black Friday. In fact, this date is only surpassed in terms of shopping by Prime Day, the holiday invented by Amazon where everything is super cheap, especially their own products.
TVs are on high demand on Black Friday, meaning that there will be tons of amazing offers and tons of demand. If you’re planning to purchase a set during this date, be prepared to wake up early, stay in line, have a shopping buddy and leave with the TV set of your dreams.
Even well known brands are likely to come up with several Black Friday deals, especially for small appliances like coffee makers, toasters, and more. Other items, like vacuum cleaners and larger kitchen appliances should also have good deals, especially from brands that normally don’t provide them. “This is because retailers make more mass orders than they usually stock, and prices drop 40 to 50 percent lower than normal retail,” explains Josh Elledge, founder of SavingsAngel.com.
