The number of deals that are available on black Friday are enough to drive even the most experienced shopper crazy, and it’s definitely something that can intimidate someone if they are a first time shopper. And while making a list is always a great idea, sticking to it can sometimes prove to be a challenge which is why in this article we have put together a few different categories of products that you should focus on and which you should stay clear off, no matter how good that black Friday deal looks.
Definitely skip buying outdoor essentials
There is a reason why you don’t see too many grills or outdoor furniture sets on the black Friday ads and that is because the best time of the year to buy these items is right after summer ends, since that’s when they are the most discounted. If you missed out on them at the end of next summer, simply wait until Labor Day comes around next year. However, if that’s not an option for you then you can always try the spring black Friday sale that Lowe’s usually hold every year.
This is the time to buy gaming system bundles
A gaming system bundle usually means that you will get the gaming console itself plus a combination of different games and accessories for a discounted price. So, if you are a gamer, this black Friday look for deals in stores like Walmart, Best buy and GameStop since if last year’s deals are any indication, you will get your hands on some great discounts this year as well. For example, last year GameStop had a $50 off the Uncharted 4 500GB PlayStation 4 Bundle as well as on the Gears of war Xbox One S blue 500GB bundle, which took their original price of $299.99 down to $249.99, which is something we expect to see again this year.
Look for home appliances
Since black Friday is known to have some of the best deals for electronics, that also includes home appliances like washers, driers, major kitchen appliances, refrigerators, freezers and so on. Last year Sears had a great deal on a Kenmor washer and dryer that went for $274.99 each when shoppers decided to buy them together which means that there was a 49% discount on the pair. Best buy was the place to be last year if you were looking for deals on major appliances since they had a 40% black Friday discount and shoppers could also get their hands on a free with purchase Keurig K525 coffee brewer that required a purchase of two or more appliances that totaled $2000 and up. If these deals are any indication of what’s to come this year, then it will definitely be a good time to get those appliances.
Hopefully these few tips have given you an idea of what you should really focus your time on this black Friday and which deals are simply not worth your time. And if there is one last piece of advice that we can offer you, then it would be to stay away from the over-hyped products and stick to what you had originally planned instead.
