Whether you like shopping or not, Black Friday is likely going to be your target day to purchase gifts for yourself and others. Black Friday is probably the best time to get crazy tech deals, and here’s what you should consider buying:
With $120 off a Galaxy S7 or upto $250 Best Buy Gift Card on an iPhone 7, this looks like the best time to upgrade to a modern day flagship.
There are a plethora of smartphone deals to choose from, but I recommend keeping track of them. Visit Amazon or the Best Buy website often and you might get a great deal. Make sure you have the cash ready though!
If you are considering an affordable phone, Cnet listed the Huawei Honor 8 as a great deal for $330 at Best Buy.
Smart Home accessories
“Alexa, I want to buy an Echo Dot.” Yes, smart home systems are here and this is a good opportunity to dive into them. Amazon is giving away good discounts on the entire Echo lineup of smart home speakers, with the Echo Dot at just $39 (Amazon)! Google is also offering it’s smart home assistant “Google Home” for $99 (Google Store, Best Buy, Walmart)
You can also pick up a Fire TV stick for $29 (Amazon), but I recommend you also consider the $25 Roku Express+ (Walmart,via Roku). Else, Google’s Chromecast for $25 is up fro grabs (Walmart).
Walmart has $50 off on the Nest Thermostat, which is now $199. Keep a check on Target too, if you are considering products from Nest.
