There are, of course, the stocking stuffers, like $6 Blu-Ray/Digital combo packs of films like Deadpool 2 and Avengers: Infinity War and $30 for recent video games like Assassin’s Creed Odyssey and NBA 2K19. And a SanDisc 32 GB memory card is just $9 (a $46 savings). But there are some significant savings on big ticket items as well.
Here’s a look at some of the best deals:
Name Brand 4K for Less Than $150
Television deals are fairly common as the holidays approach, but it’s often on no-name brands. Best Buy is offering a 43-inch LED 4K UHD TV for just $129.99 this year. The catch is you’ll only be able to get this in-stores starting at 5 p.m. on Thanksgiving.
$360 Off Microsoft Surface Pro
The iPad gets more love, but Microsoft’s tablet has received stellar reviews from users and critics. On Black Friday, Best Buy will offer the 12.3-inch Surface Pro 6 (with 128 GB internal storage—and a microSD slot in case you take advantage of those SanDisc deals above) for $599, a $360 savings. This deal’s already live, so you don’t have to fight the crowds to get it.
Need a New Laptop?
Chromebooks will be dirt cheap this year. A Samsung 11.6 inch Chromebook with 2 GB of memory and a 16GB flash drive will go for $99 (a $130 savings), while that same device with 4 GB and a 32GB flash drive will cost $129 (also a $130 savings). If you’re looking for something a bit more mobile, though, you’ll probably want to opt for Dell’s 15.6-inch Inspiron touchscreen laptop. That will be on sale for $400, $200 off the regular price.
A Galaxy of Savings on Samsung Phones
Whether you choose the Samsung Galaxy Note 9, S9, or S9+, you’ll get $300 off with a qualified activation. (Prices vary with the phone’s memory.)
Update Your Game Console for Under $200
Both the Microsoft Xbox One S (with 1 TB of memory, a copy of Minecraft and a few in-game extras) and the Sony PlayStation 4 (bundled with a copy of Marvel’s Spider-Man) will see their prices fall to $199 this year. The Nintendo Switch isn’t on sale, but you can grab a Nintendo 2DS portable system for $80.
