Black Friday deals seem like they begin earlier every year. Most of the bigger retailers don’t even wait until Friday to roll out the specials on big-ticket or most wanted items.
We are here to offer you some insight into this year’s tech deals. Whether it’s about a new 4K TV or how to get that great new gaming system running, we will do our best to help make your Black Friday tech shopping a bit less stressful.
But is it worth your time and aggravation to wait in line half the day or more on Thanksgiving, or should you stay home and overeat on turkey and stuffing? After all, the same retailers will have the same items available (mostly) on their website for the same prices and quantities, but with less physical violence over a toaster oven.
Next up on the Black Friday shopping list is Target. The red retailer plans to open its doors at 6:00PM Thursday, Thanksgiving night and close at midnight. They will reopen at 6:00AM Friday morning. Target’s ad sports a wide variety of tech, most of which is similar or the same as rivals Wal-Mart and Best Buy. For example, the Google Home Mini is on sale at all three retailers for $29, but if you pick one up at Target you receive a free $10 gift card.
The Xbox One S 500GB console is on sale for $189 and gets you a free $25 gift card with purchase. 4K TVs are again front and center here, with the 58” Samsung 4K Smart TV for $649 and 49” TCL 4K TV with built-in Roku are the highlights. However, all TVs at Target will be on sale during this time.
For fans of Netflix’s Stranger Things, you can nab a copy of season one on DVD for just $10, and it’s only available at Target. Other tech highlights are: The Canon Rebel T6 DSLR camera for $450 ($300 off), 10.5” iPad Pro for $530 ($120 off), Samsung Galaxy Tab A for $180 ($100 off), and Call of Duty World War II for $45 ($15 off). Target is also offering a selection of video games and movies at sharply discounted prices with limited quantities. As with the other retailers, selections will vary by store, so check online for a similar deal.
As was the situation with Best Buy, many of the same deals can be found on the Target website, with free shipping all weekend long. Boston HelpDesk wants you to have a happy Thanksgiving and a productive Black Friday experience. Look for more Black Friday tips from us tomorrow.
