2018 Black Friday Tech Deals
Black Friday is just around the corner meaning we only have 32 days until December 25th. Here’s a list of notable tech* deals. Every year I look at Amazon, Newegg, and Walmart for black Friday deals. This year has some great deals.
Apple – MacBook Air
Best Buy $799 – SAVE $200
By far my favorite black Friday deal. Apple’s laptops are hands down the best laptops on the market. They are pricier than their Windows counterpart but they last longer. I have a 2012 Mac Book Pro that’s running strong. Most windows laptop life span is 2 to 4 years.
Fire TV Stick bundle with Echo Dot (2nd Gen) – Black
Amazon $39 – SAVE $40
If you are okay with Alexa listening to you all day I would suggest getting the Echo Dot Fire Stick bundle. The Echo is a smart device that’s almost like a personal assistant. You can order food, shop off of Amazon, turn lights off and on with smart bulbs.
Instant Pot LUX80
Walmart $49 – SAVE $50
Instant Pot is the only thing on this list that isn’t a traditional tech product but it’s my favorite kitchen appliance. You can cook frozen chicken in 12 minutes. It’s a great product when you are on a time crunch. And best of all it’s easy to use. You can’t beat the price either.
Xbox One S 1TB Minecraft Creators Bundle
Walmart $200 – SAVE $100
The S stands for slim and not to be confused with Xbox One X which is Microsoft’s flagship 4k console. The Xbox one S is the same as the original Xbox One just in a smaller form factor. First party title for the Xbox is Gears of War, Halo franchise, and Sea of Thieves.
PlayStation 4 Slim 1TB
Walmart $200 – SAVE $100
Playstation 4 is very similar to Xbox S. These consoles are evenly matched in most metrics. The only major difference is first party titles. For PS4 MLB the Show, The Last of Us, and Uncharted 4. At the end of the day it’s a personal preference on which console to get unless you want to play baseball. If that’s the case go with the Playstation 4.
Nest Learning thermostat
Google Store $179 – SAVE $249
If you haven’t heard of a Nest thermostat then you are missing out. Nest thermostats are metal base housing with a beautiful LCD glass face that can be controlled by your phone and will learn your habits. For example it will learn when you wake up in the morning and will know you like it to be a certain temperature so by the time you get out of bed its the perfect temperature then when you leave for work it will bring it down to idle.
