Our Favorite Deals for 2022

From all the Black Friday ads that we track, the ones at Best Buy are among our favorites. Here’s our list of things that you should keep an eye out for over Thanksgiving weekend:

  • Televisions — During these last few years, TV’s have been featured at all of the big box stores including Target, Walmart, Costco, and BJ’s. That’s probably because each year the quality keeps getting better and the prices keep falling. This year is expected to be no different. Last year Best Buy featured 50” Insignia LED 4K SmartFire TV for just $149.99. They also had a 75” Samsung QLED TV on sale for $1197.99 and a cheaper TCL 75” 4K UHD LED TV on sale for $499.99.
  • Computers/Tablets — I remember back about ten years ago when folks would camp out in front of Best Buy for days to be able to pick up on of their doorbuster laptops on sale. Although those days are now over, the laptop deals are still some of the best you’ll find on Black Friday. Be on the lookout for both low-end ones on sale for under $200, like last year’s 11” HP Chromebook on sale for just $149, and premium ones on sale like select Apple MacBook Pro’s for up to $250 off.
  • Games — Now that the Coronavirus pandemic is keeping us indoors more, sales of gaming consoles have soared this last year. On top of that, we’ve got the all new PS5 and Xbox Series X consoles that we’re just released late last year. And while last holiday season it was nearly impossible to find either of these on sale, this Thanksgiving weekend is when are expecting to see both availability and bundled bargains. If you’re still sticking to your older system, then deals on PS4, Xbox One S and Nintendo Switch games are expected as well.
  • Small Kitchen Appliances — Are you finding yourself cooking at home much more than ever before? Then you’re not alone as COVID-19 has forced many of us to stop eating out on the town as much. I know that as I began cooking more home meals this year, especially for the kids that are now at home, I realized how much I was missing some critical kitchen appliances. Be on the lookout for deals this holiday weekend on KitchenAid mixers, Ninja blenders and Instant Pot slow cookers. Best Buy typically also features specials on cleaning items such as iRobot Roomba and Dyson vacuums.
  • Gift Cards — Some of the best Christmas gifts are the ones we choose ourselves. That’s why gift cards are so popular, especially for the loved ones in our life that are impossible to buy for. But forget about paying face-value for gift cards, Best Buy usually has a number of different ones that are discounted. Last year Apple App Store and iTunes gift cards were 20% off on $100 and others like Domino’s Pizza and Showtime were 15% off the face value.
