Here in this post we have gathered some of the best possible deals you can look forward to. Black Friday is the immediate Friday after the thanksgiving week and this year’s black Friday is coming on November 24 2017
Best Black Friday Tech deal 2017 predictions
iPhone 8 & iPhone X
By Black Friday, both the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X will be available. If you are waiting to get the latest and greatest iPhones. You can expect to see some kind of deals popping up for the devices. You’ll have keep your eyes and ears open, as these are the most popular deals of the shopping day, and iPhone X supplies are likely to be very limited. Expect deals similar to 2016’s $100 price cut and gift cards included with the purchase. You can also look forward for iPad deals. As they would probably pop up alongside iPhone deals.
Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy Note 8 deals
We’ve already seen loads of crazy deals for the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus. Now you can expect the same out of Galaxy Note 8 and Galaxy S8 Active, and when Black Friday 2017 comes around, you can expect the huge deals on the whole lot. We’ll just have to wait and see if those deals are sweeping discounts, beside that you can also get wireless charging docks and 360 cameras or buy-one-get-one offers.
Google Pixel 2 deals
With the launch of new Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 Xl today. They might become the best camera smartphones in the industry. With Pixel being available from next month there is still time for some slick Black Friday or Cyber Monday deals to make the new flagship an affordable one.
PS4 Pro deals
Black Friday 2016 was all about the PS4 Slim, and Black Friday 2017 will be all about the PS4 Pro. As with 2016 we’d expect the very best deals to be on bundles, with some of them costing only a little more than the PS4 Pro itself, so start working on your game wish list: a bundle’s only a good deal if it includes the games you actually want to play. Up to now, the PS4 Pro is holding its MSRP but you can expect that to change later this year, particularly when Microsoft has launched the Xbox One X.
Xbox One X deals
Microsoft’s got a pro console too, and unless something goes wrong with the release schedule it will be on sale long on November 7 – right in time for Black Friday 2017. As with the Xbox One in 2016 we’d expect to see the very best deals on bundles, rather than on the console itself: there’s more wiggle room for the retailer there, so they can afford to be more daring with the discounts.
4K HDR OLED TV deals
Black Friday 2016 was positively packed with TV deals, including nearly half-price deals on select TVs. High-end sets are where the really expensive MSPRs are, and the ever-advancing world of TV tech means those prices can only be sustained for a fairly short time. If you’re in the market for the kind of TV with a price tag that wouldn’t look out of place on a car, Black Friday 2017 could be a very good day for you indeed.
4K Ultra HD Blu-ray players deals
4K Ultra HD is in an upswing, as more affordable 4K TVs hit the market. While streaming services offer 4K content, the best experience comes from 4K Ultra HD Blu-rays. Come Black Friday, and you can expect to see plenty of 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray players sitting alongside high-end TVs with the best discounts on both.

Whether it’s a 4K HDR OLED TV or an Xbox One controller, if it’s discounted we’ll have the details here.
How do I get the best Black Friday 2017 deals?
Know what you want, know what you can afford to spend and know the market: you’ll often see retailers charging higher than usual prices in October so they can offer amazing discounts on Black Friday. Pay particular attention to real prices, not MSRPs: TVs are notorious for this, with sets having a suggested retail price of several thousand dollars routinely selling for a few hundred.
Sites such as CamelCamelCamel, PriceGrabber and Become and PriceSpy will help tell you if you’re looking at a legitimate bargain as well as track deals on items you want to buy.
It’s also a very good idea to be flexible: for example, if you want a Sony 4K TV then think about the features you want rather than a specific model number: the BRV123ABD54-88C-9218-B may not be discounted on Black Friday, but an almost identical set with the specification you want probably will be.
Can I get cashback on Black Friday deals?
Sometimes, yes. Your debit card or credit card may offer cashback on purchases, and sites such as Ebates offer cashback for customers of big-name online shops. It’s definitely worth looking into, not just for Black Friday but for any online shopping.
Am I protected when I buy on Black Friday?
Yes. In the US, anything you buy from a company online is covered by a wealth of consumer protection legislation including the Fair Credit Billing Act. This bill lets you dispute a charge or stop payment under certain circumstances while the retailer is being investigated, according to the FTC.
How can I stay safe on Black Friday?
Black Friday brings out the scammers as well as the sellers, so be wary of unsolicited emails or links to deals on social media no matter how legitimate they look: anything asking for credit card details or login details is a scam. Phishing sites do big business on Black Friday, so be extra suspicious – and if you’re on a PC, make sure your security software is up to date. Many suites automatically block known scam sites.
