If you’re waiting until the Black Friday weekend to pick up a new camera, then the wait should be worth it. Although we don’t yet have the ads for 2016, we expect to have more info by mid-November. As soon as we are able to grab a copy of the ads, we’ll post them here on Blacker Friday. Until then, be sure to check out the special offers available this week at adorama.com.
What do you plan on getting this year at Adorama? Let us know below!
If you’ve been waiting until Thanksgiving weekend to pick up a new camera, then your wait is finally over. Adorama just launched their official Black Friday 2015 deals page with offers starting now and running all the way through Cyber Monday, November 30, 2015.
There’s so much stuff on sale that it’s too much for us to list. From their main page you can browse the sale categories to see some of their highlighted deals on Canon and Nikon DSLR’s (up to $500 off!), professional lenses, computers, home theater systems, camcorders, and a whole lot more. Free shipping is included on most orders and if you’re Rewards member, you’ll earn up to 5% back on your purchase.
Last year the BF discounts started a few days before Thanksgiving and ran through Cyber Monday. Adorama is known for their camera deals and if you were lucky, you could pick up a Pentax K3 SLR with battery grip and 32g SD card for nearly half price (from $1346.95 to $796.95). They also had some of their mid-range Lumix digital cameras for over 50% off the list price with their 12.1 mega-pixel cameras for as low as $249.00. Extra savings were also available on just about all lenses and memory cards as well, with free shipping storewide on all orders above $49.00.
Besides cameras, laptops dominated this year. You could pick up a new 15” Dell Inspiron for $200.00 off for $599.99. It had an Intel i7 processor, 8 gigs of ram, and a 1 TB hard drive (this one sold out pretty early). They also had Samsung’s new ATIV touchscreen notebook for $100.00 off as well as MSI’s massively packed GE-60 Apache 629 for $300.00 off (made for gaming). Some pretty nice desktop monitors were also on sale, but the prices seemed to mirror those at Best Buy and Amazon over the Black Friday/Cyber Monday weekend.
Finally, if it was time for you to upgrade your TV then you really couldn’t go wrong this year. They had a bunch of different Samsung’s on sale ranging from 40” to 75”. Our favorite was the Samsung 75″ 1080p LED Smart HDTV (model UN75H6350) that was on sale for under $2k! It’s hard to believe how cheap these premium sets have become. If you were looking for something a little bit smaller, a very nice Samsung 55″ Class Full 1080p HD Smart LED TV, with a Quad-Core Processor, USB, and built-in Wi-Fi was on sale for just $797.99 from a list price of $1097.99.
Here are some of the highlights from the Black Friday ad from last year. You can click on each page to view it in full.
Most of the Black Friday deals from Adorama didn’t require any coupon codes but some deals had attached mail-in rebates which you needed to send in to get the full discount. Also, a lot of the doorbuster sale items had very limited quantities available and sold out in the first few hours. We always recommend that you put together a good shopping plan for each of the sale days over the weekend before you head out the door and start the moment the stores open to ensure you don’t miss out on the rings you plan on getting.
