A lot of people (about 63%) think Black Friday is all hype and that there aren’t really that many great deals. But it’s not true, necessarily. Well, that is quite true as our friends at the personal-finance website WalletHub discovered.
They took an in-depth look at 2016’s Best Things to Buy on Black Friday and determined that more than two in 10 items offer no savings compared with their pre-Black Friday prices.
To find out whether shoppers are really getting the best deals, WalletHub compared the “Pre-Black Friday Price” and the “Black Friday Price” of a broad selection of items to identify the offers that are truly worth the hassle of partaking in the year’s biggest shopping craze.
We pulled down the best tech savings from the survey:
Dell XPS 13.3” Touchscreen Laptop (regularly $1678) – $376 at Costco
LG Ultra Large Capacity Dryer ( regularly $$1,034) $539 at JC Penny’s
Samsung Refrigerator ($regularly $1,347) $448
