If you’re looking for a great deal on some great new, fun gadgets, you can save a LOT of money by buying on Black Friday. Retailers make a big push every year to encourage people to buy from them for the holidays, and the biggest sale is on the day after Thanksgiving. Our suggestion is to avoid the incredibly crowded malls and buy online. There are some amazing deals on the gadgets you and your family will love!
In case you’re looking for a camera, select Nikon cameras are 25% or more off. If you’re looking for a great deal on a DSLR, Nikon’s D3300 with an 18-55mm Nikkor lens is more than $200 cheaper for Black Friday.
There are amazing deals on tablets, including the iPad. For example, the iPad Air 32GB is down to $424.50, a savings of $174.50 off the normal price.
You can save similar amounts on the other sizes, though the 16GB, with half the storage capacity for apps, etc. is only $25 cheaper. Don’t buy the 64GB version, as it is the same price as the 128 GB version, at $529. The latter is a whopping $270 off!
If you’re shopping for an Android tablet, your choices are larger, yet smaller. Meaning, you can choose from a plethora of different manufacturers, but most are smaller tablets, around 7″ diagonal. We recommend sticking with trusted brands like Google, Samsung, Asus, etc. as they typically have better products and customer service than off brands.
One good one is the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 Lite. You can get it in white, grey or blue/green. It’s running the latest version of Android OS, 4.2 Jelly Bean, and includes 8GB of storage (expandable up to 32GB via a MicroSD slot) and 50 GB of free Dropbox storage. It’s $60 off the 139.99 list price and includes free shipping.
If you’re shopping for the grandkids, we recommend the Fire Kids Edition with a 7″ display. It features a blue or pink kid-proof case, it’s a full-featured tablet with Amazon Freetime, which allows parental controls on content and daily use time, with unlimited access to 10,000 kid-friendly books, movies, TV shows, educational apps and more for free for one year. And it offers a 2-year worry-free guarantee. If it gets broken, return it for a free replacement, no questions asked. I bought one of these for my daughter last year, and it is everything you’d want it to be. With the exception of too little memory. It’s only $84.99, but it’d be worth a little more to have a 16GB version.
If you’re looking for a massive new Ultra-HD TV and want to save over $900, check out the Samsung UN60JU7100 60-Inch 4K Ultra HD Smart LED TV
Also, one of the best things you can do to enjoy movies, TV shows and more is to improve the audio. One of the easiest ways to do this is to add a surround sound system. Those can be pricey, and require a lot of wiring. Instead, check out soundbars. The technology has come a long way, they simulate full surround with just two components. A soundbar with front- and side-firing speakers and a bluetooth wireless subwoofer that can be placed anywhere in the room. Truly full-sound and often much clearer dialog. Sony makes a good set, the Sony HTCT380 300W 2.1 Sound Bar with Wireless Subwoofer.
You plug the sound bar into the wall and into your TV’s audio out port, then plug in the subwoofer elsewhere in the room. Easy and at nearly half-price ($198 on Amazon), it can be a far better upgrade to your TV experience than buying a new TV.
