The holiday shopping season is once again fast approaching, and there are already rumors of some huge sales that will be available during retailers' huge Black Friday sales events.
Though no major retailers have yet revealed their ads or when they will begin their sales, several predictions can be made for what kinds of deals shoppers will be able to look forward to when it comes to hot items like TVs, tablets, computers and other electronics, as well as toys, apparel and more.
Based on previous trends from Black Friday sales, here are the 4 biggest things shoppers can expect on Black Friday:
Massive Discounts on HDTVs
It might seem like a no brainer that TVs would be on sale with huge discounts since they are by far, the most popularly offered items each year at several retailers. Expect off-brand models to go for exceptionally low prices at Best Buy, Walmart, Target and other retailers. More premium brand models, such as Samsungs, LGs, Panasonics and Sonys will also see low prives and offers, but will still have a higher price ticket than the off-brand models, though even they could see discounts under $100. Back in 2015, Best Buy offered a 24" LG TV for just $79.99, a savings of $70.
Tablets & Computers Going For Low Prices
Another seemingly no brainer thing to consider would be Tablets and Computers, with older models going for under $100 across most brands, and off-brand tablets could be even less than $50. Lower end computers could also potentially go for less than $100.
One thing to make sure not to get excited about would be anything by Apple, as the company famously does not offer discounts for Black Friday. Products like Macbooks and iPads could see some discounts elsewhere, but nothing major. Look more for products to be normal price, with gift card bundle offers, especially at Target, which offers them each year.
Steep Apparel DIscounts
Whether you're looking for great gifts for everyone on your list, or yourself, you could see huge discounts at every store in the malls, as well as major retailers. Discounts could go as high as 70 percent off at places like JcPenney and Kohl's, and retailers that are mall staples like American Eagle, Abercrombie, Macy's and Sears are expected to offer average discounts on the average of anywhere between 40-60 percent.
While you could see discounts on toys as high as 50 percent, it won't be on the hottest toys of the season. Expect the toys on most top toy lists to be left out of Black Friday sales, and to see discounts in the weeks prior, as well as the final weeks before the holidays themselves.
