Best Buy’s Black Friday ad brings deals on HDTVs, laptops & gaming systems
Rolling out a broad range of electronics deals per usual, Best Buy’s Black Friday 2015 ad isn’t as strong as previous years. However, we may see additional deals when the paper version of the Black Friday ad drops. In any case, we have looked through the entire 37-page scan to bring you the best of Best Buy’s Black Friday deals. Check out our top 10 below:
1. 49″ Toshiba 1080p LED HDTV ($150)
Definitely a fantastic price for a name-brand television, this 49″ Toshiba HDTV (49L310U)normally sells for $429. Prior to this point, the lowest price on the 1080p television was $350 based on our deal history. While it will likely be tough to snag this model without camping out in front of a local Best Buy store, it’s great to see a name brand television at this price rather than off-brand models.
2. Dell Inspiron 5000 Core i3 15.6″ Touchscreen Laptop ($300)
Beating a historical low of $375 for this model at Dell, this model actually comes with an additional 4GB of RAM (8GB total) and a 1TB hard drive. Definitely a solid model for teens or college students that need a start Windows 10 laptop.
3. Bose SoundTrue On-Ear Headphones ($60)
To date, the best price we have seen on these Bose headphones was $80 during an Amazon sale limited only to Prime members during July. Chopping 60 percent off the original MSRP, this is an excellent price for a set of well-reviewed Bose headphones.
4. Acer Chromebook Dual-Core 16GB 11.6″ Laptop ($99)
According to our data, the lowest price this Chromebook has dropped to in the last six months was $130. This is an ideal computer for kids that are just starting to get online, specifically due to Google’s supervised users software.
5. Samsung 40″ 1080p LED HDTV + Xbox One: The LEGO Movie Bundle ($499)
Definitely a solid bundle deal for anyone that’s looking for both a television and a Xbox One, getting both of these products for $250 each is a bargain. Of course, this bundle is limited to stores only, thus you should get in line in order to snag your bundle.
6. Logitech Ultimate Ears BOOM Bluetooth Speaker ($100)
Beating a historical low of $118 (offered by Amazon earlier this month), this is a killer price on a speaker that rarely falls below $125 when on sale. In addition to these colors, look for more models on the Best Buy site on Thanksgiving.
7. Microsoft Surface 3 64GB Windows 10.8″ Tablet ($400)
Matching a previous price low of $400 from Quill, this is another product that rarely goes on sale. If you are in the market for a Surface computer, this is an excellent deal; likely not to reappear for months.
8. LG 49″ 120Hz 4K Ultra HD Smart LED HDTV ($500)
Beating a historical low of $520 on eBay during October 2015, this a fantastic deal for anyone that wants to take the leap into 4K content without spending a ton on those additional HDTV inches. It’s unlikely this price will drop this low until the model is discontinued shortly after CES.
9. Microsoft Lumia 640 LTE 5″ No-Contract Smartphone ($30)
Beating a historical low of $60 at Best Buy last month, this is a killer deal on a no-contract Window 10 Phone (assuming you have service through AT&T).
10. Xbox One 1TB Console Tomb Raider Bundle + Extra Controller ($350)
While the price point on this bundle is pretty standard compared to other stores on Black Friday, the fact that it includes an additional $50 wireless controller is pretty fantastic for anyone purchasing a Xbox One for a 2-player household. That’s a $100 savings when factoring the sale price and the controller value.
