RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Savings experts at Fatwallet.com think the hot item this Black Friday will be tablets, since several new versions that have just hit the market..
Samsung's Galaxy Tab 3 should sell for less than $120. Because new smartphone and tablet models have been out for months, you can almost guarantee retailers will offer you incentives to buy them.
"If you were to buy a new iPhone 6 at Target, they're probably going to give you some kind of in-store gift card in order to discount that new phone," said Shelton. One prediction? A $100 gift card when you buy an iPad Air 2.
Something new to look out for this year is members' only exclusives. Signing up with a retailer early can get you discounts before the rest of the public.
Retailers sold a record number of TVs before the Superbowl and prices have been dropping ever since. Fatwallet thinks we'll pay even less this Black Friday, nabbing 50" TVs for less than $300 and smart TVs under $500. However, experts warn to be careful what you purchase.
"They build special models for Black Friday they have a few less features that why they can discount them quite a bit...the prices are good but there's usually limitations with those," said Shelton.
