With just about every retailer offering Black Friday electronics deals it can be confusing and time consuming to find what you need at the best price.
So, to make things easy for you News For Shoppers has done extensive research and compiled this list showing what the best bargains are and where you can get them.
Deals are listed by item for your convenience.
PlayStation 4: This is one of the hottest items of the season and after lots of research we’ve found that Toys “R” Us is best because they have more bundle varieties. You can get a PlayStation 4 bundled with Grand Theft Auto V and The Last of Us: Remastered or with a Lego Batman 3 and Little Big Planet 3 bundle for $399.
XBox One : The PS 4’s rival can be seen on sale everywhere and after considerable research we found Target to have the best price. While all the major retailers have the XBox One bundles with Assassin’s Creed: Unity and Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag for $329.99 Target also gives you a $50 gift card with your purchase, making it our top choice.
Video Games: Everyone is offering discounts but Toys “R” Us is tops here too as every game is 40% off- even the new ones.
GoPro Hero 3+ Silver Edition: This incredibly popular camera can be found as a Target Doorbuster for the low price of $249.99 plus you get a $50 Target gift card, making Target your best option. However, A Target spokeswoman told News For Shoppers that quantities are limited so you will have to get their early and battle the crowds if you want one.
Walmart had the camera for an even lower price at $229, but the item is currently out of stock online and in the NY area, so there is a chance it won’t be available for Black Friday. A Walmart spokesperson told News For Shoppers they are planning to restock in time, but couldn’t give an exact date.
Panasonic 50″ LED TV: TV’s are some of the biggest sale items this season and Best Buy, one of the biggest names in electronics has the biggest deal with this TV going for $199. It normally sells for $549.99, making this a $350 savings.
