Here are the best deals on Black Friday 2012:
The shopping spree day is perfect for checking out new gadgets at discounted prices. By now most if not all of the ads, pamphlets and leaked information concerning the mega stores’ offers are out so the best offers for tablets, smartphones, cameras and MP3 players could be compiled.
The MP3 department is heavily populated by iPod devices, meaning the most noteworthy deals to scout for regard Apple branded items. However, the best way to acquire such a product is not directly from Apple Stores, since the company’s Black Friday discounts are as low and as boring as always, but from authorized resellers.
For example, the Apple iPod touch 32GB MP3 Player can be found on sale at Best Buy for $295 with a $50 Gift Card attached to the purchase. If the card is used to buy the iPod then the 5%-10% discount offered by Apple is outmatched.
Same for the iPod touch 16GB MP3 Player available for $195 at Target. Purchasing the device grants the customer a $40 Gift card, which coupled with the already discounted gadget’s price sets the device at a 20% lower price than both Walmart’s offer as well as Apple’s.
The best tablets deals apply to those that come in bundles. Even though all the rival companies producing tablets have brand new, shinning gadgets to lure their customers with, their desire to actually cut down the prices is slim. As such, the best way to acquire a new tablet is not as much scouting for the best individual offer but for the most convenient gift card bundle.
Walmart offers the Apple iPad 2 16Gb WiFi Tablet for $399 coupled with a $75 Gift Card and guarantees the product will be in stock for the entire duration of the first hour of their Black Friday sales. The Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7 inch 8GB Android Tablet will be available at MacMall for $160 bundled with a $20 Gift Card, making this device the cheapest in its category up for sale on Black Friday. The tablet will be $40 under the announced prices for both the Amazon Kindle Fire HD and the Google Nexus 7.
The Amazon Kindle Fire 8GB Tablet can be purchased in 2 ways for the lowest prices available on Black Friday. One is directly from missAmazon where the tablet will be up for $129, and the other from Best Buy where it will sell for a $160 price but bundled with a $30 BB Card.
Point-and-shoot digital cameras continue to lose territory in favor of the increasing quality of smartphones ones. However, two Canon PowerShot cameras will be available for purchase at discounted prices on Black Friday. One, the A3400 16-megapixel, will be sold at Target for $90 bundled with a free case and SD card. Another, the A2300 16- megapixel, will be up for sale at Sears for $80 coupled with a free 8GB SD card. TigerDirect has a pretty nice deal up for the Sony DSC-W620 14-Megapixel 5x Zoom Digital Camera, $98 with free shipping, but the lowest price for the device is Kmart’s, $80.
If you are looking to acquire a new smartphone then Black Friday is your friend, since several devices will be available almost for free with a new contract. Sam’s Club will sell the Samsung Galaxy S II 4G for 96 cents and Staples will offer the Motorola Atrix 4G, the Samsung Galaxy S Blaze 4G and the Samsung Stratosphere 4G for 1 cent.
