Technology, whether it be the newest iPhone or the latest gaming console, has been a favorite gift for years. PlayStations, Xboxes, cell phones, headphones, cameras and other technologies are being sold at their lowest prices just in time for the holiday season, but where can you find the best prices?
The best early Black Friday deal for a PS4 500GB bundle is $50 off and it comes with Uncharted: Nathan Drake Collection and can be ordered through eBay right now. It will only last for 24 hours or maybe less. Black Friday deals in the US are one week away, where the T stands for Turkey or Thanksgiving. The official date for America’s popular shopping holiday kicks off on November 27, but some deals have already started this week.
Stores like Amazon, Walmart and Best Buy are already rolling out early Black Friday deals to drive you to stores now through Cyber Monday. While Amazon Prime Day was a fail, its game face is on for the longest-running traditional shopping deal day.
Big ticket items (the most popular gifts) this year are going to be in tech and modern gadgets, this includes the 4.7-inch iPhone 6S and 12.9-inch iPad Pro. The Star Wars BB-8 drone is going to be on the Imperial March one month ahead of the movie’s opening. Samsung Galaxy phones and tablets will sell in batches too, even when just a couple of percent off. Video game bargains will be another in-store and online purchase driver on Black Friday in the US. Here are some retailers you should watch out for.

Where to find the best Black Friday US deals in 2015
If you’re a deal seeker, you won’t be alone, so you have to act fast. Be a smart shopper and plan out your “holiday shopping attack.” Many people draw up a list of people that they need to shop for, an item they want to purchase for that person and where the best deal will be.
For instance, if Martha really wants the new Star Wars Drone and the best deal is online at Amazon.com, you should plan to buy that gift on Amazon prior to the deal running out. Or, if Joshua wants a new Xbox One and the best deal is in store at Walmart on Thanksgiving at 6 p.m., be sure to plan to make it to the store to stand in line. Having a plan will help you in the long run.
Do some research about the best deals for the item and if that means standing on line for an hour, so be it. Some of the best deals may be through a company’s website though.
Before you go out shopping (online or in store), be sure you know what you’re going for and have a plan. Happy shopping!
