Though chaotic, Black Friday remains as one of the most anticipated occasions in the year among shoppers. It is the official start to the holiday shopping season and is famously referred to as “doorbusters” since it is a time when deals are so good that shoppers try to break down doors to get at them. Last year Black Friday weekend sales totaled to over $5 billion, and this year they are expected to go beyond that. Retailers are expected to try to beat each other and their savings by offering better deals than ever before and much earlier than usual.
In 2016 we witnessed a sliding scale of discounting and the same is expected in 2017. Deals are supposed to get bigger and better as the month progresses. Retailers have already started luring customers with some reasonably discounted sales, but more exciting but limited quantity deals are to be expected on Black Friday itself. You should be on the lookout for discounts on the most expensive products.
Here are some of the top Black Friday deals you should expect.
4K Ultra HD Blu-ray players
As more affordable 4K TVs hit the market, 4K Ultra HD is an upswing. It offers the best experience in streaming services. You can expect a limited number of 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray players on offer alongside other high-end TVs on Black Friday.
iPhone X and iPhone 8
Anyone wanting to get the latest iPhones at a bargain should be on the lookout this coming Black Friday. iPhone X, iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus will be on offer. These will be some of the most popular deals of the day and quantities are likely to be very limited. You can expect $100 price cuts and gift cards that come with the purchase. Be on the lookout for the pop-up deals since they will most likely sell out within the first hour of sale.
This year you can expect the PS4 Pro to be on offer the same way the PS4 Slim was on offer in 2016. Expect the best deals to be on bundles rather than the console itself, so it is about time you started working on your game wish list.
Xbox One X
Microsoft has launched the Xbox One X, and its release has coincided with Black Friday 2017. Just like with the PS4 pro, expect greater discounts on the bundles than the console.
Black Friday is set to have some of the best deals in 2017. Know what you want and what you can afford. Study the market to make sure you get legitimate bargains and be flexible with your preferences.
