Our Favorite Deals for 2020

From all the Black Friday ads that we track, Best Buy’s is one of 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. Last year Best Buy had a 58” Insigna FireTV Edition on sale for $199.99 after $280 savings. It also came with a free Amazon Echo Dot with purchase with made this one of the best TV deals we saw. They also had some fantastic Samsung TVs on sale like a 70” on sale for $549.99 and a 75” on sale for $749.99.
  • 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 14” HP AMD-A9 4GB Windows 9 laptop on sale for $199.99, and premium ones on sale for around $900, like last year’s Apple MacBook Air that was on sale for $200 off at $899.99 and came with a $50 savings on AppleCare+ when purchased together.
  • Games — Now that the Coronavirus pandemic is keeping us indoors more, sales of gaming consoles have already soared in the first half for 2020. If you’re looking to upgrade your system or need to pick up some new games, then Thanksgiving weekend is when to find all the bargains on PS4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One S and X, and Playstation VR. Just don’t expect to see any specials offered on the newly released PS5 (you’ll be lucky to even find one available anywhere before Christmas).
  • 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.
