It’s that time of year again, and the only thing on everyone’s mind besides taking time off of work to be with friends and family is what deals are going on during Black Friday craziness!
These two shopping days have turned into a holiday for many. People will head out as soon as that turkey dinner is demolished on Thanksgiving to stand in line at Best Buy, some even camping out to make sure they get the best deal on that 65-inch television.
Thankfully, these days the internet has blessed us with its own version of Black Friday, which is now called Cyber Monday and you don’t even have to worry about leaving the couch to get those same deals you would standing on the side of a Target in a parking lot.
So, while you wait for that new foldable phone to be released, you can soothe your anticipation with some good old internet shopping.
Here at The Burn-In, we have gathered up a list of some of the best technology and electronic deals that will be (and already have been) online and in stores for Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Click the name of the product to find out where you can get yours.
For the Gamers
There’s no denying that Virtual Reality is the future of video games, so tons of different stores and websites will have VR video games among their Black Friday/Cyber Monday deals. One of the best ones, though, will be the Sony PlayStation VR, which will be on sale at Target and will also come as a package with the game Doom. Originally $299, you can’t go wrong with a VR set as a gift (or to just add to your personal collection).
While the consoles and games are a huge component of gaming, so is the headset. How else would you be able to play games with your friends across the country without interrupting your roommates or neighbors? That’s why Amazon is offering one of the best deals for video game lovers this holiday season. This headset includes sound sliders, a high-quality microphone and much more. They originally were priced at $319, so this deal is a must-have.
If VR isn’t in your wheelhouse yet or you just need to upgrade your regular console, the PlayStation 4 Black Friday deal at Target is one you won’t want to miss out on. Originally $299, the newest PlayStation also comes with a wireless controller and game—three gifts in one.
For the Homeowners
eufy Smart Scale: $40
This smart scale is the new wave of keeping your family’s health and weight in check during the holiday months. It’s a given that you, your spouse, kids, whoever, will be eating about 10 times your normal amount, so why not make keeping on track fun with a Bluetooth scale? It will even connect to your FitBit and can hold up to 20 accounts, so it’s perfect for your whole family to share. The deal is already live on Amazon.
Ring- Video Doorbell 2: $199 + free Echo Dot
Being secure in your home is obviously important, and that’s why technology in 2018 has allowed homeowners to feel secure even when they aren’t home. The second version of the Ring includes two-way audio, and you can monitor it right from your smartphone. With this deal from Best Buy, a 3rd Generation Echo Dot is also included.
eufy RoboVac 30: $199
Originally $270, eufy is also offering a Robovac as part of their Black Friday/Cyber Monday deals. Over the holidays, there are tons of people going in and out of your home, so what better way to prepare than have a robot vacuum do it for you?
For the Music Lovers
Beats Solo 3 Neighborhood Collection: $179.99
Headphones always make great gifts, and it’s even better when you save $120 on a pair. Target will have one of the latest versions of Beats Headphones on sale starting on Thursday when doors open at select Target stores. Beats are some of the most popular headphones in the market and have spectacular sound. They will be a perfect gift to give to a music lover in your life for the holidays.
Down from the original $850, Walmart and Amazon are both offering this great deal on a Sony soundbar, which is so sleek and discrete it will barely even be noticed on your television stand. Did we mention the sound is impeccable?
It’s not just retail giants that celebrate Black Friday and Cyber Monday—Guitar Center does too. This deal, an electronic Ibanez bass guitar, is one too hard to pass up for that guitarist in your family or someone who needs a new hobby. Originally $180, you can’t really go wrong.
Did we mention it includes LED lights? This hoverboard will be all the rage this year, and if you buy it at Target on Black Friday then you can save $50. Do you have an immature uncle or a 10-year-old cousin that needs a gift? This hoverboard will be perfect for either of them. Grab it and be that cool aunt this holiday season.
If everything else is getting updated, why not your thermostat? Costco is having an amazing deal for members on Black Friday with a thermostat that has a built-in Alexa, so you don’t even have to get up to change the temperature this holiday season.
