The Good And Bad Black Friday Deals


There are all kinds of Black Friday deals Thursday and Friday, but not all of them are worth it.

According to Retail Me Not, when it comes to the best products to buy — electronics will be a hot ticket item. They will be heavily discounted — some up to 40 percent.

When it comes to smartphones — Apple is offering a $300 gift card with the purchase of certain iPhones. You could also save up to $300 on a Samsung Galaxy.

Appliances are also one of the best things to buy on Black Friday. You can expect to find coffeemakers, slow cookers, toasters and blenders discounted by 40 to 50 percent.

This is also a good time to buy some new winter gear. Retailers are expected to dramatically discount winter jackets to clear out their overstock.

But now, here are some things you probably shouldn’t buy for Black Friday. You may see ads for deals on furniture, but don’t give into the hype.

The best time to buy indoor furniture is in January and July. You might also want to stay away from gaming consoles.

Wait to buy them until the final week before Christmas. That’s when retailers discount consoles as a last-minute push.

This one may be hard to hear — but you should also wait to buy toys. Usually retailers won’t discount toys until two weeks before Christmas.

And finally, you’ll want to stay away from gift cards.

Gift cards are usually cheaper in December, leading up to Christmas.
