Top 10 Black Friday 2018 Deals

Top 10 Black Friday 2018 Deals

Sorting through piles and piles of Black Friday ads and trying to compare and contrast deals to find the top offers can be all but impossible. The paradox of choice is real when staring at the thousands of deals from hundreds of pages of Black Friday ads, but that won’t stop us here at BFAds from delivering the goods.

Now that all the major ads have broken and we’ve taken a look at everything nationwide retailers have to offer, we’ve narrowed it down to the cream of the crop; the absolute best that Black Friday has to offer, and present it here in our list of the Top 10 Deals of Black Friday 2018.

10. Xbox One S and Xbox One X Video Game Console Bundles

While it’s true that every major retailer is selling the same console bundles for the same price, Walmart’s fine print hides a sneaky deal that is one of the best out there this Black Friday for anyone wanting a new game console. Sure, Walmart has the Xbox One S 1TB Minecraft Creators bundle for $199.00, and the standard Xbox One X 1TB bundle for $399.99, as do other retailers, but just below these advertised deals on page 13 of the Walmart ad is an early holiday gift for shoppers to unwrap. Walmart is also offering a $70 discount on any and all in-stock Xbox One X bundles, and is slashing the price of all Xbox One S bundles to just $229. This kind of versatility allows shoppers to get the exact bundle on their shopping list but still receive a Black Friday discount.

9. Kohl’s Cash Deals

Kohl’s Cash is a great way to save money any time of year, but every Black Friday, Kohl’s dials it up a notch to entice Black Friday shoppers. By adding an extra $5 onto their everyday bonus, and awarding shoppers $15 for every $50 they spend, they take already great deals and add extra value to them, sometimes in the hundreds of dollars as with their 4K UHDTV and video game console deals. What makes Kohl’s Cash really special is that shoppers can use it as a build-your-own doorbuster of sorts, since the offer is available on anything purchased at Kohl’s, it can be used to create a deal on items that would otherwise go without a Black Friday discount.

8. Apple iPad Deals

Unlike Apple iPhone deals, doorbusters on Apple’s ever-popular tablets have cash discounts at many major retailers this Black Friday. For those wanting a full-sized iPad, the options are plenty, with Best Buy, Walmart, and Target all offering the 32GB iPad for $249.99. Target, however, offers a little more versatility by simply giving an $80 discount on all iPad models, allowing you to choose a different model than the standard 32GB and still receive a doorbuster discount. Shoppers who have the iPad Mini 4 on their shopping list can also find cash discount by heading to either Target or Best Buy, where they’ll have the tiny tablet on sale for $249.99.

7. Xbox One X 1TB w/ PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds - $399.99 w/ $120 Kohl’s Cash

Xbox One X 1 TB consoles are discounted to $399.99 across the board this Black Friday, with each retailer offering $100 off Microsoft’s 4K console. While some retailers like Best Buy are trying to sweeten that deal by charging a little bit more, but also including a game and an extra controller, as they’ve done with the Xbox One X Gold Rush bundle found on page 2 of their Black Friday ad, Kohl’s has taken an entirely different route. Kohl’s has got the overall best deal of Black Friday 2018 on the world’s most powerful game console, thanks in part to their Kohl’s Cash deal, which nets shoppers $120 in Kohl’s Cash with purchase. What puts this deal over the top is that in addition to the Kohl’s cash bonus, shoppers will also receive a free download of the runaway hit and grandfather of battle-royale shooters, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds.

6. Walmart Apple iPhone Deals

Using store gift cards to subsidize the price of iPhones that might otherwise go completely without discounts has become a Black Friday staple. The question is usually which store will have the largest gift card bonus and will they have the newest iPhones as a featured deal? Walmart nails both of these details by meeting or beating every other retailer on gift card bonuses and by making this offer available to all 2017 and 2018 model iPhones with activation on AT&T, Sprint, or Verizon. If you’re after the newest 2018 iPhones, including the Xs, Xs Max, or the surprise hit iPhone Xr, Walmart has got a $300 gift card bonus waiting for you. Walmart then ups the ante for anyone choosing to go with 2017 iPhones like the iPhone 8, 8 Plus, or the iPhone X by offering a $400 Walmart gift card bonus.

5. Best Buy Samsung Galaxy Smartphone Deals

Best Buy is offering the kind of deals we love best here at BFAds: cash discounts. While other retailers have some very inciting bonus offers that include gift cards, only at Best Buy can you get a cash Discount on a slew of Samsung Galaxy phones, and some of the deals don’t even require activation or payment plan contracts with phone carriers. If you don’t mind playing the activation game, Best Buy is offering a $300 cash discount on the Samsung Galaxy S9, S9+, or Note9, when you activate on AT&T, Sprint, Verizon. For those that prefer to go the off-contract route, you’ll still save $200 on a factory unlocked Galaxy S9, S9+, or Note9.

4. HP Pavilion 15.6” Gaming Laptop w/ NVidia GTX-1050Ti (CX0056WM) - $599.00 at Walmart

Every Black Friday, shoppers expect to find great deals on laptops. But like the Spanish Inquisition, no one expected to find true doorbuster savings on a bona fide gaming laptop from HP. Typically, laptops under $600 feature lackluster integrated video acceleration from Intel, or maybe Radeon if we’re lucky, but never before have we seen graphics from NVidia at this price point. The GTX 1050Ti adds 4GB of dedicated GDDR5 to the already robust hardware package that includes an 8th Generation Intel Core i5-8300H, 8 GB of DDR4-2666 SDRAM, and a 7200RPM 1TB hard drive. This is without a doubt the top deal on a laptop this Black Friday and will go fast after Walmart opens their doors at 6pm on Thanksgiving Day.

3. LG 70” 4K UHDTV w/ HDR (UK6190) - $699.99 at Best Buy

Our second runner up for the top 2018 doorbuster deal is all but interchangeable with our 2nd place pick. When we say this was close, it’s a photo finish, as this deal is every bit as spicy as our number 2 pick, and is probably the top overall deal of the year in the eyes of many. To find a massive 70” 4K UHDTV from one of the top manufacturers like LG, and to have that set feature HDR10 color and 3 HDMI ports and still be priced so far under the $1000 barrier is truly something that could only happen on Black Friday.

2. TCL or Sharp 65” 4K UHDTV w/ Roku - $398.00 at Walmart

Narrowly beating out our #3, our first runner up also has all the makings of a Black Friday doorbuster to remember. For under $400, taking home a 65” 4K UHDTV has been unheard of up until this point, but Walmart has pulled it off, giving shoppers the chance to take home a new 4K TV from either Sharp or TCL that features HDR color and the most robust and fluid steaming experience possible thanks to Roku integration.

1. Toshiba FireTV Edition 43” 4K UHDTV w/ HDR - $129.99 at Best Buy

It’s no surprise to see this doorbuster deal from Best Buy taking the top prize for our overall best deal of Black Friday 2018, as this is one of the best television deals in recent history if not ever. This deal checks every box for the makings of an incredible Black Friday doorbuster: It’s from Toshiba, a trusted brand, it’s feature rich, including Amazon FireTV integrated streaming, HDR color, and 3 HDMI inputs, and it’s the lowest ever seen on a 43” 4K UHDTV at just $129.99. This is the kind of deal that has shoppers lined up and camping out in the cold for days, and is sure the be the most sought after doorbuster of 2018.
