Black Friday 2018 Top Friday-Only Deals

Black Friday 2018 Top Friday-Only Deals

It was all but an inevitability that Black Friday would eventually creep into Thanksgiving Day. With the competition between retailers being so cutthroat, once the competition led to a test of who could open their doors first, it was only a matter of time before Black Friday became Black Thursday.

Yet, there still exists a few stalwart defenders of the Friday doorbuster, fighting the good fight to keep Black Friday where it belongs: on Friday! Some stores keep their doors closed while others hold Friday-only events, but regardless how it’s done, those who value the time spent with family on Thanksgiving can rest easy knowing there are deals waiting for them the day after Thanksgiving. Not only are they there, they represent a bit of a microcosm of what takes place on Thursday, with doorbuster savings on nearly every category, all happening on Friday. With the true spirit of Black Friday, we’ve picked the best there is to offer, and with our list of Top Friday-Only deals, we’ll let you know where you need to be on Friday morning to get your hands on a hot doorbuster deal.

At 8am on Black Friday, this Lenovo notebook will be discounted down to only $199.99, a steal of a deal considering this low-cost PC avoids many of the traps of buying a budget laptop.
