Black Friday 2018

The actual date varies year by year, but it’s always falls Friday after the Thanksgiving Day. This year, though, Black Friday 2018 is on November 23, 2018. National retailers kicks off their sales an hours or even days ahead of the actual date with their pre-Black Friday deals.

Dating way back to the early 1950s, retail stores commence the Christmas holiday shopping season with big sales. Black Friday has been considered as the start of the Christmas shopping season in the United States since 1952. Americans came in crowd because the day after Thanksgiving was usually a day off from work, making it the ideal day to shop in-stores, before the inception of the Internet.

Cyber Monday 2018

The Cyber Monday, coined by Ellen Davis and Scott Silverman, will be on November 26. It’s consistently the first Monday after Thanksgiving, and one of the ideal and hassle-free strategy to track down online deals. It’s one of the top days during the holiday shopping season for us when it comes to referring consumers to the best deals online.

The inception of Cyber Monday, the marketing term for the Monday after the Thanksgiving, dated back to just 2005. E-commerce stores including eBay and Amazon started offering their own deals to rival with the brick-and-mortar retailers that was Black Friday.

Why Monday and not Saturday or Sunday? Because it turns out Americans like to shop over the worldwide web while they’re at work in the office, using fast computers and high-speed Internet connections. In the early days of online shopping, Monday manifested a very profitable day for online retailers – so e-commerce companies welcomed it.

Black Friday vs Cyber Monday 2018

Black Friday came into existence at retail industry; and Cyber Monday was the online world’s answer to the in-stores sales. So, in the early days, you’d flock the location stores on Friday, then hit the worldwide web on the following Monday.

To date, Black Friday is being celebrate at both online and in-stores as retailers also embraced the online sales offering their deals at both platforms. Although there are a huge number of retailers still running “doorbuster” sales that require walk-in shoppers, the e-commerce companies has completely adopted the Black Friday. The Black Friday sales runs at both in-stores and online, while Cyber Monday is exclusively to the latter.

Still contemplating when to shop during the highly anticipated holiday shopping season? Don’t let the advertised promotions deceive you. Retailers releases almost all the deals during the Black Friday sale to make you experience FOMO (fear of missing out). “Limited time offer!” “In-store exclusive only!”

Our best recommendations is to complete everything you want to purchase in Black Friday 2018 and keep a eye on a significant price cuts during the Cyber Monday. If a particular deal is comparably cheaper on Cyber Monday, return your Black Friday 2018 order or hit the cancel option should it’s still available and score the best price.

Black Friday usually offers deep discounts in physical stores, while Cyber Monday is limited to an online sale. Retailers, such as Walmart, Target, Best Buy and Amazon are aggressively zealous to keep you shopping all weekend long, so these retailing firms often gradually releases deals to keep shoppers browsing throughout the Black Friday week (which also include Cyber Monday).

Hottest deals of Black Friday last year

There were no good deals on the gaming systems last year, the latest Xbox One X and PS4 Pro were just slightly discounted. You’re fortunate enough if you found a Nintendo Switch at full price last year.

We also found the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus deals on the top retailers and warehouse clubs, a $300 worth of gift card on the iPhone X at Walmart, and tempting factory unlocked Pixel 2 XL and Galaxy S8 deals.

We also saw a deep discounts on 4K TVs that starts and a nosedived in LED TVs prices. Sure, 4K will dominate the front and home entertainment pages of the retailers’ ad scans.

As for Amazon, the e-commerce titan continues to mark down its own hardware products: Kindle, Fire tablets, Fire TV sticks and set-top-boxes as well as the Alexa Assistant-powered Echo smart speakers will see a drastic price markdowns.

Top deals to expect on Black Friday 2018

New iPad, iPad Pro, iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and iPhone XR

While Apple isn’t directly participating in the Black Friday in the past few year, instead opting to reward customers with gift cards of up to $150 (depending on the price of the product you’ll pay for), there were a number of chains offering price discount. Additionally, Walmart and other stores offers significantly larger amount of gift cards.

The 2018 iPad model is priced at $329 right now, and that could comfortably be priced at $299 at the big three US retailers. The iPad Pro may see an even bigger price drops most especially on eBay and the big 3 national retailers.

As for the recently launched iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and the cheaper among the three — the iPhone XR — you may not see a drastic price slashes in Black Friday 2018, most especially on the unlocked units. However, expect some retailers like Sam’s Club to offer as low as $0 down payment on new qualifying contracts for Verizon, AT&T and Sprint. Walmart, Target and Best Buy aren’t offering direct price cuts on new models of iPhone, like we’ve mentioned they offer u to $300 gift cards instead.

Samsung Galaxy S9 and Note 9

As for Samsung’s 2018 Galaxy S9 and Note 9, Android fans should keep a watch during the Black Friday and Cyber Monday 2018 period. Since the Galaxy S9 didn’t sell well when it hit the shelves earlier this year, the South Korean tech giant needs to move revenue. Meaning, we are highly expecting the Galaxy S9 unlocked to be offered at more affordable price mark at the end of 2018. Additionally, the Note 9 may also see a significant price drops, but it won’t be as bargain as the Galaxy S9.

PS4 Pro, Xbox One X & Nintendo Switch

Toys R Us is permanently out of the game, and other stores will fill up the shoes on PS4 and Xbox One gaming systems bundles. Usually, gaming consoles are bundled with a couple of video game titles at a considerabble price tag.

Sony’s PS4 and Xbox One S has been a certainly a hot sellers each and every passing holiday shopping season. Sure, the Nintendo Switch is very popular Black Friday deal last year, but some gamers find PS4 and Xbox deals to be even more deceiving. In Black Friday 2018, there are an upgraded versions of the consoles from Sony and Microsoft, the PS4 Pro and Xbox One X. Both systems were launched last year and when they entered the Black Friday festivities, we haven’t saw a good bundles. Now that the PS4 Pro and Xbox One X are at least a year older coming to November, we expect them to be offered with better prices. Expect a best prices on Nintendo Switch, Xbox One X and PS4 Pro deals this Black Friday 2018.

Black Friday 4K UHD TV Deals 2018

If you don’t own a 4K UHD TV set yet, then this Black Friday 2018 is the best time to score a new one because we are anticipating that almost all retailers will start 4K UHD TV deal at $179.99.

Amazon Products

We expect the Amazon will once again highlight its own hardware products by putting it in the store’s home landing page. In 2018, expect Amazon Kindles to get a price drops, even the most latest models. Amazon Fire tablet prices will likely be discounted by around $20-$50, depending on the model and storage configuration. Amazon’s range of Alexa Assistant-equipped Echo Smart Speakers – will certainly see significant discounts.

Ultimately, the best thing to do before you shop on Thanksgiving, Black Friday and Cyber Monday 2018, be sure to review all the deals you want to buy and make sure that discounts is definitely a bargain.
