What are the best things to buy during Black Friday 2020?
We all know that there are things you should plan NOT to buy during Black Friday if at all possible, usually because there are better sales throughout the year on these items. However, if you’re wondering what are the best things you SHOULD buy during Black Friday, check out our top 10 best deals to buy!
Here are the top 10 best things to buy during Black Friday:
1. Get small kitchen appliances for next to nothing!
Small kitchen appliances like air fryers, toasters, microwaves, coffee makers, slow cookers, and stand mixers almost always go on sale during Black Friday or Cyber Monday. Whether you’re wanting to take your coffee brewing to the next level, need a KitchenAid mixer, or just know someone who wants an Instant Pot for Christmas, this is a great time to shop for these items.
In 2019, we were able to score small kitchen appliances at Kohl’s (blenders, hand mixers, waffle makers, slow cookers, and more!) for around $2 each after mail-in rebates and Kohl’s cash! 😱 This year, we already know that Walmart will be offering up a 6-quart Instant Pot VIVA 9-in-1 Pressure Cooker for just $49.99 shipped!
2. Fill your cupboards with a new set of cookware on the cheap!
Last year on Black Friday, Kohl’s sold a 20-Piece T-Fal Nonstick Cookware Set for just $39 shipped after rebate, plus shoppers received $15 Kohl’s Cash in return! This was just one of many cookware deals we saw last year, and we expect this year to bring plenty more!
3. Tablets and e-Readers are among the best things to buy on Black Friday.
In fact, electronics are usually discounted up to 40% off on Black Friday, so you’ll want to shop early if that’s what you’re looking for. To avoid wasting time, do your research ahead of time and be sure to know exactly what you’re looking for before the sales go live. These items tend to sell out quickly!
4. Watch for Amazon Devices to rival Prime Day prices.
In the past, we’ve seen doorbuster deals on the Amazon Echo Show, Echo Spot, Echo Dot, Echo Plus, Amazon Fire, and other devices that usually meet or beat Amazon’s Prime Day deals! 😱
5. Get a gaming console at the lowest price of the year.
Shopping for a gamer? Gaming consoles like the PlayStation and Xbox are highly sought-after holiday gifts. In previous years, we’ve seen retailers like Kohl’s, Target, Walmart, and Best Buy offer $100 off Xbox and PlayStation gaming consoles, sometimes with a store gift card included with purchase.
With the new PlayStation 5 expected to be released this year, we may see deeper discounts on the older PlayStation 4 come Black Friday.
6. Stock up on video games and movies.
Not only can you score deep discounts on gaming consoles on Black Friday, but you can get great video game deals, too. While many stores will offer video games bundled with consoles for an additional discount, individual video games will be on sale as well.
In the past, we’ve seen select Nintendo, PlayStation, and Xbox video games for under $17 at Best Buy, where they regularly sell for $59.99 or more!
7. Fitness trackers and wearable tech are some of the best things to buy on Black Friday.
You’ll find deals on everything from your basic Fitbit to your high-end smartwatch at retailers like Kohl’s, Target, Walmart, and Best Buy. Plus, if you’re willing to get an older model instead of the latest wearable tech, you’ll be able to score even better deals!
8. Black Friday is a great time to buy a digital camera, lenses, and accessories.
If you’re shopping for a DSLR or new point-and-shoot camera, many times you can find nice bundle deals when shopping the Black Friday sales. Many retailers include free accessories like lenses, bags, straps, or SD cards as part of a bundle deal at a reduced price.
Shopping for a kid or tween? If you’re looking for a kids’ camera like a Fujifilm Instax, you’ll likely be able to find a nice sale on these, too. Last year, we spotted bundle deals on these Polaroid cameras at Walmart, Best Buy, and Target that included free film or a gift card with purchase.
9. High-end headphones are usually the most affordable on Black Friday.
If you’re in the market for a new pair of headphones or know someone who is, you’ll be able to shop the Black Friday sales and score significant savings.
10. Ride-on toys are a popular gift and a great deal at this time of year too.
Ride-on toys are fun for toddlers and small children to use in the spring, which is why many retailers offer discounts on them during the winter, especially on Black Friday. In the past, we’ve seen powered ride-on toys at Kohl’s for under $60-$70 with $15 Kohl’s Cash.
Because these toys are highly sought-after and take up a lot of space, retailers usually only carry a limited number of these ride-ons, so you’ll want to shop early!
