Best Black Friday resources

Here’s a list with all Black Friday 2016 dates information and store hours (and online times).

Best Black Friday tips

  • If possible keep your Black Friday shopping spree online, as it is safer and quicker.
  • Avoid buying computers that justify the price by bundling software, accessories, and in-store support.
  • When getting laptop, tablet, or desktop, pick the one with the highest resolution possible (1920 x 1080 pixels or better).
  • If you’re buying a monitor don’t get anything larger of 27-inch with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, as it won’t look good, it will look pixelated.
  • Plan ahead and focus only on the product you planned to purchase if planning to shop in person at the store.
  • Carry with you an ad magazine at all times to avoid grabbing the wrong product.
  • Ask for return policies on Black Friday deals.
  • Cables and specific accessories are always cheaper online.
  • Look out for those asterisks on the ads (*), which often give you important information about the product.
  • Retailers can be sneaky and use Black Friday to clear old inventory, make sure you research the product you want ahead of time to make sure you’re getting a good deal.
  • Check prices online before you buy anything, chances are it’s already discounted.

Amazon usually doesn’t list Black Friday deals ahead of time. Actually, you have to visit the Black Friday hub to find and claim the offer, which most of time lasts for a few hours. Amazon has also announced that it’ll be extending its deals beyond Thanksgiving weekend until December 22nd.

Note that some specific items, such as Microsoft’s Surface, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 will be getting the same discount across retailers. For example, getting an Xbox One S on at Best Buy or at the Microsoft Store will save you the same amount of money. 

Keep in mind that Black Friday deals are available for limited time and very small quantities, as such make sure to grab the deal you want as soon as possible. In addition, not all the deals are available online and in-store, availability will vary.

Happy Black Friday shopping spree!
