Black Friday 2018: Top Tech Deals

By |2018-11-16T09:18:26+00:00November 19th, 2018|

Black Friday 2018 is right around the corner, and we’ve scouted out the top tech deals to help you snag ultimate savings at Best Buy, Samsung, Target, and Walmart.

Amazon has daily deals that run until Black Friday. Follow their Black Friday updates for deals and steals, especially because they update their offers every hour the week of Black Friday.

If you’re looking for Apple products, they didn’t release a Black Friday ad of their own, but Amazon, eBay, Target, Walmart, and Best Buy all offer Apple deals in their respective ads.

As for phones, we highly recommend thoroughly examining the fine print before jumping at the deals. Many of them have clauses and stipulations, so it’s best to know what you’re in for before you go. Mindful tip: Verizon and AT&T offer in-store deals, and many phones listed in the Black Friday ads for “big box” stores require some type of contract with either provider to qualify.

If your office needs any of the following items (or perhaps your personal life requires a few things), we’ve grabbed the biggest savings and a few of the best deals on tech and compiled them here so you can strategize.

Best Buy

Deals start November 22 at 5 PM and run until November 24 while supplies last. TV prices, on the whole, tend to be higher here, but the selection may be better than “big box” store counterparts.
