Are you ready for Black Friday, the biggest shopping event of the year? If you haven't marked your calendars yet, the date is Friday, November 29th. And this year, we expect to see retailers launching their Black Friday deals well in advance because the event falls on the last week of November. This is the best time to shop for the items on your wish list from giant retailers like Amazon, Walmart, Best Buy, and Target. Black Friday ads, circulars, and deals have already started “leaking” and we expect huge discounts on all products. Here are some of the deals to look out for on Black Friday 2019.
Black Friday TV Deals
Black Friday is the best time of the year to upgrade your TV. In the past, TVs have always been one of the biggest sellers on Black Friday and this year we should expect even more super deals from some of the biggest brands like Sony, LG, and Samsung. On Black Friday 2018, we saw huge discounts on 4K and OLED TVs on popular brands like Samsung. For instance, LG65SK8000PLB had a 56% discount. This year, online stores like Best Buy are offering huge discounts on 4K TVs with the 65-Inch NU6070 Series going for $599.99 (a discount of $200). Toshiba 43” 2160p Smart 4K UHD TV is expected to go for $129.99 (a discount of $200). Walmart, Amazon, and Best Buy are the popular stores to keep an eye out for the best electronic deals this Black Friday.
Game Consoles and Game Prices
While Microsoft continues to push Xbox One S and Xbox One X deals, Sony has the PS4 and PS 4 Pro on offer. We expect to see some great bundles, better than last year’s. This year, there are predictions of even steeper discounts. On Black Friday 2019, expect up to 40% discounts on video games and accessories and up to $50 discounts on PS4s and Xbox One X and S consoles. Last year Xbox One S systems went as low as $200 and this year the prices could drop even further to around $175. On the other hand, Sony may rely more on PS4 bundles, e.g. PS4 Pro with Days Gone or PS4 Slim with Spider-Man. For Black Friday gaming deals, check out stores like Gamestop and Newegg for the best deals. Following closely on the game consoles are games. If you want to get big hitters and new games like Red Dead Redemption 2, Resi 2, Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, Borderland 3, and Control, be prepared to grab super deals come November 29th.
Laptops and Tablets Deals
Black Friday is the best time of the year to get your dream laptop or tablet. Big players like Acer, HP, and ASUS laptops are likely to be hugely discounted. Microsoft’s Surface Pro 6 with 128 GB SSD is expected to go for around $698 down from $899 at Amazon. Other deals worth your attention include:
- HP Spectre x360 256GB SSD was $1,149 and is now down to $899 at Walmart.
- Samsung Chromebook 3 4GB was $219 and is now down to $159 at Walmart.
- MacBook Pro 15-inch 1TB SSD RRP is $3,800 and is now down to $3,349 at Best Buy.
- ASUS VivoBook F150QA 15.6-inch normal price is $219 but is now down to $159 at Walmart.
We’ve seen crazy discounts from stores like Amazon in the past, for instance, 30% off on Samsung Galaxy S9. This year, expect to see stores like Best Buy, Walmart and Amazon lowering prices of top-tier phones like Samsung Galaxy s10, s10e, and s10+. If last year’s trend is anything to go by, Samsung s10 which currently sells at $849 should dip by almost $300 come Black Friday. The s10e, whose RRP is $699 may go as low as $399. For iPhone fans, get ready to get an upgrade with up to a $200 discount. Like last year, iPhone XS Max, XR, and XS received discounts from major stores with models like XS seeing a $300 drop with the activation requirement.
Beauty Products, Apparel, and Footwear
Black Friday also offers some of the best bargains on designer shoes and clothes. It's time to shop for the top brands like Calvin Klein, JCPenny, Ralph Lauren, Under Armour, and Nike to mention just a few. We expect discounts of up to 51% this year. The secret is to get your list ready and be the early bird when the trades go live. The beauty industry is not left behind either with top brands like Avon, ESPA, Ulta, Sephora, Macy’s and e.l.f. offering their best deals yet.
To Consider Before Your Purchase
There will be thousands of items on offer come Black Friday and without proper planning, things might get messy fast. So, make a list of things to buy and your estimated budget. If you plan to upgrade your 4K TV or iPhone, do early research so that you know exactly what to go for when the markets go live. Remember, thousands of people might be after the same item and it will be on a first-come-first-served basis.
