From Amazon to Xbox, here are the best deals to seek out for Black Friday 2018.
In anticipation of the biggest shopping day of the year, we’ve compiled a list of Black Friday sales for holiday and casual shoppers alike. Whether you’re looking for new headphones, TV or wardrobe additions, we’ve got you covered. Be sure to note which sales are online: no sense in camping outside the night before if you don’t have to.
While not the most impressive collection of deals, the three stripes are still offering markdowns up to 50% off on footwear and apparel. There’s not much in the way of streetwear, but if you are looking to update your gym wardrobe this might be the spot. Deals in store are most likely going to be where you have the most success, but there are some 2,361 products currently online with price cuts. Shop the early discounts here.
Perhaps the best deal offered by Jeff Bezos and company is the “Fire TV Stick bundle with Echo Dot (2nd Gen) - Black.” It’s an $80 value that you get for $39.98, and a solid steal for anyone wanting the convenience of the Alexa technology and vast streaming capabilities of the Fire Stick. The deals don’t stop there, however, as the retailer also has markdowns on everything from footwear to drones. Shop their sales here.
The Geek Squad continues to boast some of the best sales of the season, and more than delivers in 2018. Products like iPads, laptops and TVs should be your go-to grabs, but don’t write off the Blu-Ray releases: titles like Marvel’s Black Panther and Infinity War are retailing for $6.99. A lot of these deals can only be found in-store, and quantities are limited. Preview their discounts here.
Dick’s Sporting Goods
The athletic one-stop retailer is boasting 25% markdowns on select products from Adidas, Nike and more. We recommend copping the Jordan Men's Therma 23 Alpha Training Hoodie for $37.50, or the adidas Men's Team Issue Fleece Hoodie in MGH for $41.25. Shop all the deals here.
The de facto store for video games is boasting $30 off select titles, and discounts on XBOX One X and S consoles. If you’re feeling nostalgic, check out their “Blast From the Past” bundles starting at $69.99. See the full ad here.
This music spot may not be the first place that comes to mind when you think ‘Black Friday,’ but this could work in your favor. The retailer naturally has deals on instruments, but its the Live Sound section you’ll want to check out. Whether shopping for equipment to use at next summer’s family barbeque or if you just want to upgrade your personal sound system, many of their markdowns stand to save you upwards of $100. See the sales here.
The sporting goods store is offering markdowns on Adidas, Champion, and Timberland in-store. While they currently have 25% off select Nike apparel, it might make more sense to go into one of their locations to get the best deals.
The jury is still out on whether Drake was right about “checks over stripes,” but the folks over at Nike are offering an additional 20% off select items, with the code “THANKS” at checkout. Be sure to look at the Air Jordan footwear eligible for the deal, and the Nike SF Air Force 1 boot in club gold going for $116.97 before the discount. The full collection can be found over at Nike.
This deal is possibly the hottest on this list, and for good reason. For a limited time, you can get Marvel’s Spiderman 1TB PlayStation 4 Bundle, which combines the addictive game with a console for just $199, a markdown from $299. While initially available at several retailers, BestBuy is the only place with it still in-stock online. There is sure to be deals in-store on Black Friday, but why fight the rush? Check out Best Buy's listing here.
The brand that recently recruited Lil Yachty is offering 40% off all running and walking footwear in an early Black Friday Sale with the code “WALKRUN40.” From November 22nd-November 25th, that 40% will extend sitewide. Check out the early sales collection here.
While the retailer might not sport the appeal of is earlier days, they are boasting 50% off coats, game tables, tools and work boots among other products. Check out their full list of sale items here. (Apparently, they are not yet fully out of business).
Much in the vein of Best Buy, Target has some pretty remarkable price cuts on flat screens and laptops. Given the rush to such products, however, you might be better off trying to score an Apple Watch (Series 3) for $199.99, which will save you around $80. Also, if in need of headphones, we suggest tracking down the Beats Solo3 Wireless Neighborhood Collection, which will be going for $179.99, a massive cut from their regular price of $299.99. Check out the company’s full ad here.
The brand that has attracted artists like A$AP Rocky and Justin Bieber is offering 40% off sitewide and free shipping, using the code “STUFFED” now until November 25th. Some exclusions apply (naturally) but it remains a good opportunity to pick up some of iconic label’s fall trends. Shop the sales here.
All fleece and select footwear pieces are 30% off over at UA’s online store. This is a good place to get workout essentials like compression leggings, sweatpants and dri-fit long sleeves. Shop the looks here.
While the discount giant advertises $100 markdowns on video game consoles like the Xbox One X, it’s TVs where you stand to save big. In particular, a Spectre 50” Class is going for $199, which is a markdown of about $150. Also be on the lookout for video game and movie price cuts, with Madden 19 in particular receiving a $20 reduction. Check out all the sales here.
If PlayStation isn’t your thing, Microsoft is offering a comparable discount on their own console. The “Xbox One S 1 TB Console - Minecraft Creators Bundle” is currently available for $199, saving you $100. While your thoughts on Minecraft might be so-so, this is a solid deal for anyone looking to pick up the console ahead of the holidays. Purchase it here.
We would be remiss without plugging ourselves, right? Our own store will be having a Black Friday sale extending until Cyber Monday -- look for 25% off everything until Sunday night, and on Monday, we'll have a buy one and get one 50% off deal. For the blog-loving hip-hop fan. Check out the selection here.
