It's that time of the year again: Black Friday season is finally here, and savvy shoppers are flocking to Amazon, HP, Dell, JC Penney, T-Mobile, Costco, Kohl's, Sam's Club and Walmart to take advantage of deeply discounted items on sale for a limited time.
In an effort to give you as much time as possible with your family (and turkey) this holiday season, we've put together a list of the best Black Friday deals on the market.
Amazon kicked off the holiday season early when it launched its Black Friday Deals Store the day after Halloween.
This season, the e-retailer will offer up a new discounted deal on its holiday site every day, possibly as often as every five minutes, for products ranging from wearable technology to sports and fitness gear. If you're looking for any big-ticket savings, you're not likely to find them here, although the site does offer a complementary shopping guide to help customers find the perfect gifts.
Those who've signed up for Alexa, Amazon's digital assistant, will also get access to other exclusive deals as the holidays approach, while Prime members will get an additional 25% off pre-order and new-release video games, the ability to shop its holiday "Lightning Deals" with 30-minute early access and two-day free shipping.
Like most of its competitors, Costco has planned big discounts for its electronics and tech items. In the leaked ads shared by BFads.net, pricing isn't included, but it does showcase the discounts available. While this means more work for consumers, it's also an easier way to gauge which items are the most discounted on first glance. Here's some of the items on offer:
Most millennials likely remember Ben Curtis, the overly enthusiastic actor from those '90s-era Dell commercials, and his catchphrase "Dude, you're getting a Dell." This year, Dell might want to bring back those old-school advertisements: The software company is rolling back prices on almost everything it sells, from laptops to HD TVs.
Starting on Thanksgiving night at 6 p.m. Eastern, Dell will start selling (and I use that term loosely because these prices are so low) discounted electronics as part of its Black Friday doorbuster promotions.
