One of the best ways to help you really enjoy something you’ve bought is – bagging it at a great price, and that’s what we’re going to help you do.
Black Friday 2018 is now less than one month away so it’s time to start thinking about what you might want to buy and how much you’d be willing to spend.
The reason we are making this list for Black Friday is simply to help you buy the things that you’ll actually care about at a price that’s really impressive – there are tons of deals going on, but finding the good ones is often a case of roving the internet!
Black Friday is your best bet to find a 4KTV deal, cheap laptop, and best headphones prices. We’re already seeing discounts on cameras, iPhones and video game consoles: PS4, Xbox One, and even Nintendo Switch. There’s almost too much on sale to list.
When is Black Friday 2018?
The first thing you may ask is: when is Black Friday? The actual date shifts year-to-year, but it’s always the Friday after Thanksgiving. So it’s less than a month away.
This year, Black Friday is November 23, 2018. Of course, retailers begin hours and even days ahead of time with pre-Black Friday deals. We’ll be running those, too.
We’ll jump right into the best tech deals for Black Friday 2018!
Best Tech deals to expect on Black Friday 2018:
1. New iPad (2018) and iPhone X
Apple kit is so rarely discounted that even a little bit off is a really big deal. As with Black Friday 2016 and Black Friday 2017 we’d expect Apple itself to offer gift cards rather than deals, but you can expect cuts on last year’s handsets – the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X – if there’s still some stock kicking around.
The new iPad 2018 has been around long enough to attract decent discounting too, so keep your eyes peeled for that – it’s a brilliant device at any price, but particularly worth looking at if you can get any money off.
2. Garmin Vivosmart HR Activity Tracker
Wear today’s fitness goal on your wrist with Vivosmart HR, activity tracker with Garmin Elevate wrist heart rate technology and smart notifications. It displays steps, calories and floors climbed.
This new favorite activity tracker took the internet by storm and became the most talked about product.
The deals have already begun since the holiday season has started. It is expected to reduce further for Black Friday!
3. Samsung Galaxy S9
As with iPhones, so with Galaxies: not just the Samsung Galaxy S9 but the Note range too.
We saw Black Friday deals wiping out the entire up-front cost on contract Samsung handsets, and with the phone has been on sale since early 2018 we’ll be amazed if there aren’t some delicious deals to be around Black Friday 2018.
4. PS4 and Xbox One
Tech-wise they’re still brilliant, but in retail terms, these consoles are getting rather old. With rumors of a PS5 swirling and a pretty saturated market, we’d expect to see some great deals on both consoles, especially bundles, where retailers have much more room to maneuver.
hat said, do keep your eyes out for PS4 deals in the lead up to Black Friday – if you see a bundle and you like the look of, it’s worth going for, rather than risking it not getting dropped in the Black Friday!
5. 4K HD OLED TVs
There will be deals out there, though – OLED tech, in particular, is still incredibly expensive and improving fast, which means that much to the annoyance of early adopters, there will be massive discounts on relatively recent sets.
The difference between OLED and even very good LED TVs is really dramatic, and you’re not going to regret the upgrade – especially if you get it at a knock-down price.
6. Amazon Echo devices, Fire TV sticks, Kindles, and Fire tablets
It wouldn’t be Black Friday if Amazon wasn’t slashing the price of its own-brand devices, and last year we saw some superb deals on the Echo speaker range, Fire tablets, Kindles, and Fire TV devices.
Amazon’s tablets and e-readers also saw some generous discounts, with the Kindle Paperwhite down from £109.99 to just £79.99 and the Alexa-enabled Fire HD 10 Tablet getting a whopping £40 off. And if Amazon’s new Fire Tv Cube makes it to the UK in time for Black Friday 2018 it’ll likely get a price drop too!
To further narrow it down for you guys, here’s a list of all the big tech retailers who are expected to have the biggest deals on Black Friday 2018!
As with last year, both big tech retailers and brands are likely to be involved during the period.
Most retailers are yet to confirm their participation in Black Friday 2018. However, some companies have static pages set up which will update with deals during the event.
