The Best Black Friday Deals of 2017

The big retailers launch holiday sales the day after Halloween, and the flow of new deals never really slows down for two months afterward. So it’s no wonder that traditional epic sales days like Black Friday have become less meaningful: With week after week of nonstop deals and discounts, it’s harder for any individual sales event to stand out.

Nonetheless, Black Friday remains, well, a very big deal. An estimated 44% of American consumers say they’ll shop in stores or online the day after Thanksgiving. The percentage of people planning on going to physical stores on Black Friday is decreasing, down to 27% from 31% a year ago. But the crowds will still be substantial, and retailers want to do everything possible to draw them out on to stores Thanksgiving Day and Black Friday, or at least entice them into browsing online for can’t-pass-up deals.

Here are some of the most tempting offers we’ve come across from 16 of the biggest Black Friday players.


The world’s largest e-retailer may have launched its first early Black Friday deals on Nov. 1, but Amazon always saves some of the best discounts for Thanksgiving and Black Friday. These offers and many others will be rolled out to shoppers during the long, frenetic Thanksgiving-Black Friday weekend:

Fire Kids Edition tablet for $75 (regularly $100)

Penney is notorious for using extremely inflated list prices so that the markdowns seem more impressive. The best deals tend to be sale items that are even cheaper when combined with mail-in rebates. (Just make sure you actually mail in the rebate!) Among the sales:

Among the best doorbusters are 49-inch 4K TVs or Sony Playstation 4 or Xbox One S Minecraft game console bundles, each at a price of $250.

Deals Alert – This smart 4K TV is under $400 right now—but it won’t last long

You can find smart TVs with 4K quality at great prices these days, especially when you’re able to catch them on sale.

Right now, just such a sale is taking place on Amazon, where you can find a 55-inch TCL smart TV with Roku built in for just $398. Less than $400 gets you a massive flat screen and the ability to access all your favorite streaming services without hooking up a secondary device.

This best-selling TV usually costs $450, but occasionally drops down below the $400 mark. However, the sale often ends pretty quickly, so you’ll want to act fast* if you’re in the market for a great TV at a fantastic price.

*It’s currently on backorder, so you will have to wait a week or so to get it, but what’s a week compared to saving money?

What makes this TV a steal

  • 4K Ultra HD picture quality with HDR (high dynamic range) technology for a clearer picture
  • Includes a built-in digital tuner for access to local networks
  • Built-in Roku technology for access to thousands of streaming services and apps like Netflix, HBO Now, YouTube, etc.

Top 5 Best iPhone 8 & 8 Plus Wallet Cases

Apple’s announcement of the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus did not come as a surprise. Nor did its steady upgrades of processor, camera, and display technologies.

What did come as a surprise, however, is that both phones will fit into cases from the previous generation.

If you have a case for an iPhone 7 or 7 Plus, then you are set to upgrade to this year’s model.

If you don’t, that’s okay too. There are plenty of inexpensive protective case options out there. Wallet cases are among the most useful types of case, as they can slim down your every day carry significantly.

Amazon Already has the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus for pre-order

The Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus were just announced earlier today, but you won’t be able to get your hands on them until at least April 21st. However, if you’re looking for the unlocked variant(s), you can head over to Amazon now and pre-order either device.

Currently, both the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus are available for either $999.99 or $1,299.99, but there’s one caveat – it’s not sold directly by Amazon. Instead, it’s sold through Wireless Everything, but you are still eligible for Amazon’s Prime shipping. Luckily, this company has an overall 99% positive rating when looking at the 5,000 customer reviews.

Now before you jump the gun and go crazy, it’s important to note that these are the unlocked international variants. This means you’re likely to get Samsung’s Exynos 8895 processor, instead of Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835 SoC.

If you pre-order now, you’ll be guaranteed to receive your device of choice by no later than May 2nd. This is a bit later than the carrier-unlocked variants because the international devices will launch on April 28th.

So hit the buttons below to pre-order your device of choice, and let us know which one you decide to choose. If you need some help deciding, hit the links below to check out everything there is to know about today’s announcement.




The best wireless Beats are at a new low price on Amazon

When we compiled our list of the best wireless headphones for running recently, the Powerbeats 3 by Beats came out on top. Now, you can enjoy the lowest price they’ve ever seen and nab a pair for just $149.99 from Amazon.

What makes the Powerbeats 3 so worthy of praise? For one thing, they sound spectacular. Listeners can expect Beats’s signature, full-bodied bass along with rich response in the mids and the highs. As with most in-ears, getting a proper fit is critical. Fortunately the Powerbeats 3 have an ear-hook design that ensure stability whether you’re jogging, lifting, or hitting the treadmill.

For around $150, you’ll be getting a heck of a lot of value.

Beats by Dre Powerbeats 3 – $149.99 via Amazon

We were also astounded by both the wireless range and the battery life, which are unparalleled in this class of headphones. Thanks to top-shelf engineering, users can squeeze an hour of playback out of just a 5-minute charge. On a full charge, the Powerbeats 3 offer about 12 hours of continuous playback.

If you’ve previously been hesitant to pull the trigger on the Powerbeats 3 because of their $200 price tag, now’s the time to take the plunge. For around $150, you’ll be getting a heck of a lot of value out of some of the best wireless in-ears we’ve ever tested. This deal only applies to the black variant, however—every other color variant is still listed at full price.
