Whether you are an average consumer looking for bargains, or a hardcore camp-out door buster, Black Friday presents the largest variety of deals on a widespread scale. In order to help you get the best deals, we put all the best buys for electronics and apparel in one place.
Kicking off with one of the most anticipated sale of the season is electronics. This year consumers will be happy that the 70″ 4K LG television is marked of $300, with its sale price settling at $699.99 at Best Buy in Fairlawn. This is certainly one of the bigger deals, however local stores such as Walmart and Target are offering TVs of similar proportions and amenities for the same mark down. Brands that will be on sale include Samsung, LG, ROKU, Element and Philips.
As far as tablets and laptops, the best deals can be found at Walmart. Many tablets have mark-offs but the two that could be saving you hundreds are as followed.
The high-tech Microsoft Surface Pro 12.3″ touch screen is marked off by nearly $350, with a sale price of $599.99. Walmart will also be selling the Macbook Air 13.3″ 8GB RAM for $799.99 and costumers will be happy to know it is marked down by $200.
If you are in the market for video games, going to the location with the most selection seems the most appropriate. No matter where you go, the sales and deals are basically the same. Both Playstation 4’s and Xbox 1’s are marked off by $100.00 with a final price of $199.99. Individual games can be found 50% off with a price of $29.99 as well.
In the audio department, Best Buy has a Sony XB7 speaker that is marked off by $50, the sale’s price reaching a $199.99. In addition, there is a new pair of Sony headphones that will cost $199.99 and save costumers $150.
The pricing of clothing items can be very lucrative. No specific sales are being set by stores, however the lower prices in general will make these locations a hot spot for Black Friday apparel hunters.
JCPenney is famous for having low prices year-round, so it stands to reason that this may be an ideal place to hit for a good bargain. Other stores to check out this Friday are Kohl’s, Macy’s, PINK and Target.
By far, the most money spent on Black Friday each year is spent on electronics and apparel; and no matter what you prefer, you are bound to find a great deal this year. Shop smart, but most importantly, shop safe.
