Black Friday can be pretty overwhelming. There’s a mountain of deals available on everything from tablets to home appliances and even cars. You’ll hear the talking heads on your local news station and mainstream media talking about how Black Friday has lost its luster. Don’t listen to them. Sure, there are tons of sub-par deals being advertised, but don’t let that distract you from the really good stuff. I’m talking about sizable discounts on products that are notorious for never budging from retail. The types of products that are a good buy even at full price and become unbeatable when on sale:
We’ve broken down a few Black Friday product categories already, including HDTVs, video games, Apple products, streaming media players and home goods. Now we’re going to widen our scope to share the best overall Black Friday tech deals. We’ve based our selections on product popularity/quality and historical pricing.
And don’t forget, inventory is typically very limited for doorbuster and other popular deals so you’re going to want to make sure you’re ready for when they go live. We’ll, of course, be posting like crazy right through Cyber Monday, but we’ll also be tweeting some of the most hard-to-get deals. Make sure you’re following us on Twitter so you don’t miss any of the action.
