We’re still a couple of months away from Black Friday 2018, but one of the well-known deals tracking news sites has already released its wild predictions about the upcoming holiday shopping season. The site claims that retailers will likely begin offering discounts as early as last week of October.
BestBlackFriday.com projects that with the biggest holiday shopping day takes place earlier than the past years, the deals for Black Friday 2018 will be rolled out earlier than before. Last year, sister companies Office Depot and OfficeMax kicked off their pre-event sales on October 29. While the e-commerce giant Amazon began rolling out its Black Friday countdown with deals as early as November 1st.
However, the website warned the shoppers not to take the decoy even the advertised price tag is quite tempting and should patiently wait until the mid-November to get a better discounts.
One of the well-known early sale is the Sam’s Club’s annual One-Day Only Sales Event. We are expecting the warehouse to commence its early Black Friday sales on Saturday, November 10. Just like in the previous years, it will likely be a preview for some of Sam’s Club hottest deals and doorbuster prices on consumer electronics. The wholesale club is also notorious in offering $0 down on the latest flagship smartphones in town. So, expect the recently released iPhone XS and soon-to-be launched iPhone XR to be available during that sale.
Major Black Friday ad leaks from the big three US retailers including Target, Walmart, and Best Buy, will likely begin dripping on November 5th and be completed by the 8th of the same month.
Some of the hottest deals will be offered in Black Friday 2018 at deep discounts includes rivals Xbox One X and Sony PlayStation 4 (PS4) Pro with 1TB storage bundles. Both consoles are expected to come up with $100 off the original price. Also, there will be the Nintendo Switch console and will see a price drops from $50 to $60.
To pair your new gaming system purchase, TV sets will also see a significant discounts most especially on 4K UHTVs from popular brand names. According to the BestBlackFriday.com, cheapest prices on the LED HDTVs could start at $70 for a 32-inch model, while the 4K TVs at 40-inch size category could be yours for around $125.
Moreover, Apple products are also expected to be available at steep discounts. If you’re in the market for new iPhone or iPad and MacBook, it is not ideal to go to Apple Store. Instead, head over to third-party retailers, like Best Buy, B&H, Target, Sam’s Club, and Walmart.
Most of the Black Friday deals for 2018 will commence online on Thanksgiving (typically a minute after midnight) and will run overnight into Friday, Nov. 23. And the doorbusters and deals will also be available in-stores at afternoon of Turkey Thursday that typically last on the following day, Friday. One projection claims that online doorbusters will start as early as on Monday of Thanksgiving week (Nov. 19). While this is a good news for some shoppers (and best news for retailers want to edge their competitors), the excitement and joy of Black Friday proper is completely vanishing.
