What Black Friday deals to expect on Amazon
While before online retailers were separating themselves from physical stores by offering discounts on Cyber Monday, the Monday after Black Friday, now, they’re pretty much double-dipping, with deals available on both days and, of course, in between and before that as well. Basically, it’s a whole savings season.
This year shouldn’t be much different than last year (at least in that regard), with major discounts on some of the most popular consumer electronics. Such as:
The pricier the item, the bigger discount you can expect. Common non-Black Friday discounts are usually around 20%, so anything that reaches 50% or more is a great deal. Keep in mind that some third-party sellers on Amazon might hike the prices in advance so that the Black Friday deals look better than what they actually are.
If you already have plans for specific purchases, you can bookmark the items and note the prices, perhaps even fill out a spreadsheet with all the info in one spot. This way, you’ll be able to act fast and have a good idea if the deals are really worth it. That will also help with your impulse control if you feel like you might buy something you don’t really need or want.
Keep an eye out for Lightning Deals. Those usually offer great discounts but only last a few hours or until the stock runs out.
As a reminder, Black Friday this year falls on November 27, so if you’re planning to go on a shopping spree, make sure you’re ready by then.
