1. TARGET: Nikon CoolPix L340 20MP Camera for $99
Need a new camera? For less than $100, you can get a digital camera with a 28X zoom, HD video and a 20MP sensor. This Target Black Friday deal saves you $130 the list price. We’ve seen a couple of retailers offering Black Friday camera deals around this price point, including a Canon Powershot deal from Walmart.
2. BEST BUY: $200 Off Select Apple Computers
Discounts on Apple products are so rare that even this relatively modest discount is still pretty excting for Apple fans. $200 is a nice savings for a laptop or desktop. If you need a new laptop for yourself, a loved one, or a student, this is a deal you should strongly consider.
3. OFFICE DEPOT: HP Laptop for $124.99
Per a Black Friday press release we received from Office Depot, shoppers can expect to score a 14-inch HP laptop with Intel Inside for $124.99. The regular price is $249.99. This particular model has 2GB memory and 32GB hard drive. This is a Doorbuster deal at Office Depot. This deal will be available in stores from 8 a.m. on Black Friday.
4. KOHL’S: HD TV for $99
One cool Black Friday deal from Kohl’s is this 32-inch Westinghouse HD TV for $99, which is $100 off the list price. It’s not a particularly large or feature-rich TV, but it’s perfect if you’re in need of a really cheap set. It’s also a nice set for kid’s rooms, the garage, or other small spaces where you don’t really need a massive set.
For every $50 you spend at Kohl’s between November 23 and 29, you’ll also get $15 in Kohl’s cash. The Kohl’s cash can be spent between November 30 and December 6. That additional bonus money can help you pick up a few last minute gifts later in the year. Kohl’s will open on Thanksgiving Day at 6 p.m.
5. TARGET: No-Contract Smartphone for $29.99
This deal is great for students, or true bargain hunters who don’t want the expense of a phone on contract. The Boost Mobile Moto E no-contract 4G LTE Android phone normally retails for $99.99, so you’re saving $70. Those are some serious savings, which you could put towards toys or other holiday gifts on your list.
6. WALMART: $249 Wii U Bundle
$249 is a pretty decent price for a Wii U bundle that comes with two games. Super Smash Bros. and Splatoon are both really fun games, and perfect for keeping a house full of kids occupied on Christmas morning. Supplies for that deal will be more limited than for the store’s Nintendo 3DS XL deal, so plan accordingly.
7. EBAY: Samsung 4K TV for $1,799.99
eBay may not be the first place that comes to mind when you think of Black Friday, but you might want to check out the site this year. According to the Verge, eBay is offering a wide variety of electronics deals. One of the most intriguing is a Samsung 65-inch 4K smart LED TV for $1,799.99 (regularly $3,999). That’s a savings of almost 55 percent. It’s still a lot of money for some families, but if you were planning on upgrading to a 4K set, this is one of the best deals we’ve seen on a 4K TV of this size.
8. JC PENNEY: Fitness Trackers for $39.99
It may not be a Fitbit, but it’s a fraction of the price. If you were planning on picking up fitness trackers for people on your list, $39.99 is a pretty solid price for an on-wrist tracker. If you want to see other low-cost fitness trackers, you can also check out our guide to the best Fitbit alternatives.
9. COSTCO: Big Savings on Microsoft Surface Tablets
A leak about Costco’s Black Friday plans from BGR indicates that the retailer is planning some nice Microsoft Surface deals. You can get $300 off the Microsoft Surface Pro 3 Windows 10 Bundle (with 1-year Office 365 Personal included). The Verge also reported that you could get the Microsoft Surface 3 128GB Type Cover and Surface Pen bundle for $100 off, but only when you shop online. Costco will open at 9:00 a.m. on Black Friday.
10. AMAZON: Cheap Kindles
Amazon is playing its cards close to the vest so far, with few confirmed deals about what Black Friday will bring. Based on years past, we’re expecting a wide variety of deals across fashion, electronics, toys, housewares, and much more. Amazon has already started their pre-Black Friday deals, all of which can be viewed here. According to USA Today, one deal we can expect to see from Amazon on Black Friday is a deep discount on Kindles.
The Kindle e-reader, which normally retails for $79.99, will drop down to $49.99 starting on November 22. That’s a savings of almost 40 percent.
