As Thanksgiving draws closer, turkeys are thawing and the holiday shopping season is heating up. As we prepare for gatherings with friends and family, major retailers are arranging their annual sales. Black Friday is looking to be even bigger than last year and we’re anticipating huge discounts on our favorite devices. From laptops and tablets to 4K TVs, everything will be on sale. Grab a hot chocolate, or your favorite seasonal beverage, and let us guide you to the electronics deals we’re most excited for:
1. Google Home Mini Smart Speaker
One of the greatest joys in our modern lives has been the introduction of personal electronic assistants, like the Google Home Mini Smart Speaker. Not only does this smart speaker offer hands-free assistance, but it can also connect to over 5,000 smart devices from numerous brands. Last year’s sale saw this device slashed to half its price and we’re expecting more of the same this year as well.
2. Apple iPad 2018
If you taste in tablets veers towards the Apple side, then you’re probably eager to see the Black Friday deals for Apple’s iPad 2018. This entry-level device supports the Apple Pencil giving artists the Apple advantage. Other users will be delighted at the faster A10 processor, but we’re just excited to see this tablet drop even lower in price for Black Friday.
3. Amazon Fire 7
Amazon’s popular tablet, the Amazon Fire 7, is a great deal for Black Friday. These tablets let users do so much, including asking Alexa for help, playing games, taking photos, listening to music, and so much more. Last year, this device was slashed to nearly half its price so we’re expecting much of the same this year.
4. Toshiba 55-inch 4K HDR Fire TV
The Toshiba Fire TV is the latest in Amazon’s collaboration with TV manufacturers where Fire TV is embedded in its platform. This model is popular with reviewers who enjoy the Fire TV OS and built-in Alexa support. This 4K TV can help control your smart home with the power of your voice and if last year’s sales are any indication, we expect it to be on a deep discount come Black Friday.
5. Apple Watch Series 3
It wasn’t too long ago that Apple released its newest version of their popular Apple Watch series and while that’s definitely going to be a hot seller this year, we can’t help but look forward to the older models going on even deeper discount this year. The Apple Watch Series 3 is expected to be available for its lowest price yet and it’s a deal we can’t resist. Despite this watch’s older generation, it’s still a great workout partner with its heart rate monitor and built-in GPS capabilities. It’s a great smartwatch that won’t break your bank this year.
6. Ultimate Ears MEGABOOM Bluetooth Speaker
No smart home is complete without bluetooth speakers. The Ultimate Ears MEGABOOM Bluetooth Speaker is a powerhouse of a speaker known for its minimalist style, ease of use, and, most importantly, bigger sound. The battery life is no joke either, as it offers 20 hours of powerful sound. Last year, this water-resistant speaker was available for a fraction of the original price, so if you’re in need of big music for New Year’s, we recommend this fabulous speaker.
