Black Friday 2015 Questions Answered:

Q: I've read that the models for tvs, laptops, etc. that they put out for Black Friday & Cyber Monday are low quality & maybe even made specifically for those days. Is this true?
Thank You, Katherine

Yes it is true. There are products especially made for Black Friday. Walmart and Best Buy are for instance offer a bargain laptop and bargain TVs each year that is only available through them. So it is definitely important to look very closely on the specifications. This is what we do in our Black Friday deals coverage. We analyze the products offered and point our readers to the best deals on products with the best quality.

Q: Wouldn't it be wiser for retailers to offer better and more online sales? The people stampeding in the stores keeps me from wanting to try getting a deal. I would much rather find a deal online and shop. They could use creative marketing to get people to return to the website also.
Thank You, Joey

well they do. Each year the online Black Friday sales get bigger and retailers offer more doorbuster deals that match those offered in-stores. There are though a group of consumers that like the idea of camping in front of a store to get their hands on one of the few available doorbuster deals.
You can get though most Black Friday deals online in the days ahead of the BF. Amazon for instance will match Walmart’s Doorbuster deals in their week long Black Friday Deals Week starting on Sunday before Thanksgiving.

Q: Plasma TV / When do you think a good time for me to buy a flat screen TV. Now or Black Friday?
Thank You, Edwina

First off, Plasma is a dying technology. I love it tough. Samsung pulled out of Plasma just this summer leaving LG the only Plasma TV maker. There is actually a great chance to get your hands on a highly discounted Samsung Plasma TV during Black Friday.

I recommend to start find the TV you want know and check its current price. In early November retailers will start to promote early Black Friday deals. The best deal might already be available in the weeks before the actual Black Friday. Check pre-Black Friday sales from Best Buy, Amazon and Walmart to see if they feature your TV in a sale.

if you look for absolute bargain TV, we just published this Black Friday TV deal prediction.
