The day after Thanksgiving, known as Black Friday, has been recognized as the start of the Christmas shopping season in the United States since the 1950s. Black Friday 2017 was predicted to not be as hectic as other years, with more people shopping online than ever before. Below is a compiled running list of the best deals to take advantage of on Nov. 24.
Certain Costco deals are listed from Nov. 17-27. The store will be closed on Thanksgiving and open at 9 a.m. Black Friday.
Many deals listed are in-store only, meaning people will have to brave crowds and try to obtain items while supplies last. Some deals included in the retailer’s Black Friday sales are listed as follows: The HP Pavilion 15.6” 1080p Touchscreen Laptop will cost $699.99 instead of $899.99, and the Arlo Pro Smart Home Wireless Security Cameras will sell for $399.99 instead of $499.99.
Kohl’s generated a buzz with its planned savings on technology items for Black Friday.
Some deals listed include the Amazon Echo Dot will be available for $30 instead of $50, the Google Home device will cost $80 instead of $130 and the Xbox One S will be priced at $190 instead of $280.
The retail website Amazon opened its Amazon Black Friday Deals Store Wednesday, making several products such as a 65-inch Samsung TV for less than $1,000 available as one of the “Deals of the Day.” In 2016, Amazon’s deals became more appealing as Black Friday neared.
Amazon Prime members who own an Amazon Echo, Echo Dot, Amazon Tap, Amazon Fire TV or Fire tablet can use Alexa — Amazon’s voice-powered, intelligent personal assistant — to shop hands-free. In the past, there were Black Friday deals solely with voice shoppers during the holidays.
