The best way to make the most of Black Friday savings is to be prepared. So we're kicking off the holidays early at dealnews with our sixth annual Black Friday deal predictions, compiled by our expert staff. If you're wondering how low big-screen HDTVs can go, how much you'll have to spend on a decent laptop, or whether you'll actually see a discount on an iPad, then you've come to the right place.
Although electronics typically get top billing during Black Friday, many of the best deals we'll see are on home goods like appliances, kitchenware, tools, and more. Whether you need a cheap vacuum, a new tool set, or a standing mixer, Black Friday will be your best time to buy.
One of the best trends we've seen in recent years is the growing prominence of Black Friday clothing sales. Apparel merchants at all ends of the fashion spectrum, from department stores to luxury boutiques, have begun to offer some of their best discounts of the year during shopping's biggest holiday.
While we're not predicting any write-home-about-it deals on the two new major video game consoles, shoppers can still score solid deals on previous generation gaming: Holiday console bundles will be marked up to 25% off and popular, recently-released video game titles will sell for as low as $10!
Even though Roku and Apple TV can't compete with the price of Google's Chromecast, that doesn't mean there won't be some excellent sales on streaming devices this Black Friday. In fact, expect those top-of-the-line streamers to see discounts of up to 25% off. And if you're more of an old school media consumer, Blu-ray disc movies will again drop to as low as $4 this year.
Tablets are once again the "it" item for the holidays, and new Android devices have flooded the market and chipped away at Apple's dominance. All this cutthroat competition has translated into better and faster deals for consumers. As such, there's bound to be some eye-catching Black Friday tablet deals this year.
You may think that the Apple Black Friday sale is the best time to purchase all things Apple, but the truth is that it's extremely mediocre. Year after year Apple offers the same predictable 5% to 10% off, which resellers handily beat. So where should you shop for your Apple gifts this year? As it turns out, anywhere but Apple.
2013 was a roller-coaster year for the laptop industry. While we saw the introduction of a new, energy-efficient processor from Intel, much of the year was overshadowed by weak laptop sales. And although many analysts are predicting the death of the laptop, we know that when it comes to productivity, the laptop is still king. And with laptop prices lower than they've ever been before, it's a buyer's market. But how far will your money and which systems will see the best laptop deals this Black Friday?
HDTVs are the highlight of most Black Friday sales, often causing deal-giddy shoppers to wake up at the crack of dawn for a chance to purchase one on the cheap. But this year, you can say goodbye to waiting in line for a Black Friday TV deal; they'll be available at price lows no matter where you shop. And with analysts predicting a resurgence in big-screen TV sales, this Black Friday is poised to be one of the best weeks for making the jump to a 55"+ HDTV.
