save money on black fridayMom and Dad –

  • HDTV:  Following a record number of Super Bowl TV deals last February, we’ve seen a year of consistent discounting on quality models, so we expect more and better Black Friday TV deals than last year. Look for 42″ HDTVs for under $250, 50″ models under $300, higher quality or smart HDTV deals under $500, and off-brand 4k TVs at similar pricing.

 

Teens and Tweens (Students)

  • Laptops:  Expect the price of basic 15″ laptops to drop below $200 and many mid-level touch-screen models with Intel Core i3/i5 processors to fall below $300. Some lower level hybrids like the ASUS Transformer fall below $400, and Microsoft Surface Pro 3 below $600. High-level hybrids will have competitive Black Friday discount savings of $200 or more, and Black Friday Macbook deals from $150-$250 off list.

New iPad Air 2 deals and iPad Mini 3 deals will come with gift cards up to $100 during Black Friday.
  • Smartphones:  Expect top stores like Best Buy, Walmart and Target to offer the iPhone 5S deals for $0 and a bonus in-store gift card (w/2 year contract). Gift cards will also drive the price down on new iPhone 6 deals, possibly as low as $99 for 16GB models.
