This means Black Friday and Cyber Monday is more than just a two days sales frenzy, or even an extended weekend tradition. It's a whole month of savings, if you know where to shop and when to hit that checkout button.
Black Friday should continue last year's trend of not just offering discounts, but offering discounts on items you'll actually want to buy. Specifically, we're expecting to see big-ticket items like 4KTVs with HDR support — a once expensive proposition, and Apple to offer cheap iPads, which was a big hit last year. New AirPods in may see the older models on sale for a better price, while laptops, iPhones and Android smartphones should be at their lowest levels in The sales period has fallen into a rhythm, so here are some Black Friday predictions that we fee are safe bets:.
Mobile carriers were offering hundreds of dollars off on flagship smartphones like the iPhone XR, XS, and XS Max when customers traded in an old phone and started new lines of service. Black Friday is one of the most important times of the year for TechRadar - we spend weeks ahead of the big day or weekend making sure the whole site is ready for people looking for the information they need to help them make the right buying choice.
Whether that's knowing which is the best laptop, TV or iPad, or just seeing great deals for them through our Hawk price comparison widget, we've got everything you need to know. Amazon makes life difficult on Black Friday by discounting pretty much everything. But, the biggest price cuts come from its own products: Fire tablets, Kindle e-readers and its Echo devices last year, as we well the Ring series of tech that it bought.
With Amazon having bought Eero , expect the mesh routers to be discounted, too. But what technology should you be looking out for? It was so good that our Mobile Editor in the US instantly bought two for his parents.
The iPhone XR was one of the biggest sellers in as well, with discounts appearing instantly on contract even though it was a newer phone. As with iPhones, so with Galaxies: not just the S10 but the new Note too. Black Friday is the Friday immediately after Thanksgiving when retailers begin the holiday shopping season.

For many people, the retailer deals may work better than many of the deals being offered by the major carriers. Most of those require you to buy one phone at full price to get a second phone at a discount. But here's a warning: Many deals from retailers such as Best Buy and Target can come with the same kind of catches that the carrier offers do.
Be prepared to finance the phone with your chosen carrier over a period of two years or longer and commit to staying with that carrier for that amount of time. If you don't, you're on the hook for the balance of the phone's cost. And, as with any installment plan, you need to have good credit to qualify. ET the day before Thanksgiving and in store at 6 p.

But there are catches. First of all, this is an in-store only offer, which means you won't be able to get it by shopping at home in your jammies.
And, you'll need to be an early bird. Store quantities are limited. Cancel your service before the phone is paid off and you're in the hook for the balance. The same three carriers are involved and similar financing deals are required. Target also has a limit of two phones per shopper. In terms of the carriers, so far, Verizon is the only one with notable deals here. But, in addition to agreeing to pay off the phone over a two-year period, you're going to need to add a new line.
Don't need a new line? Both of these offers run all weekend. Phones in good condition dating back to the 6s are acceptable. And the deal comes in the form of 36 monthly credits, so you're going to have to stick with T-Mobile for three years. Leave early and you'll have to pay the phone off.
As with the T-Mobile deals, the free phone comes in the form of a monthly credit. And you'll have to either activate two new lines, or activate one new line and upgrade an existing one.
The same conditions apply. The same rules for both retailers' above offers apply here too. This deal, which starts online on Thanksgiving, runs through the end of Friday. The retailer doesn't have any offers for the iPhone 8 or 8 Plus. But if you sign up for one month lease of an iPhone 8 or 8 Plus through Sprint, that carrier will give you a second one for free.
