Both Black Friday and Cyber Monday are famous for dodgy deals and recycled old deals. Unless you desperately want one of these products, I’d suggest you tread carefully: 

  • Amazon – 50-inch 1080p LED TV for $145 (no retail price listed) – the lack of a brand means this remarkable price needs to be treated with caution until the model is revealed
  • Amazon – 50-inch 4K Ultra HD Smart TV for $249.99 (no retail price listed) – as above
  • Best Buy – Lenovo 110-15ISK 15.6-inch Laptop, Intel Core i3, 4GB RAM, 1TB Hard Drive for $299.99 (save $30) – was $249.99 on eBay’s Black Friday sales and has mixed reviews
  • Best Buy – Save $100 with iPhone and Select Beats Wireless Headphones – pushing customers onto specific brand combinations. Was a $250 gift card on Black Friday with no headphone obligation
  • Best Buy – Apple TV – 64GB – Black for $169.99 (save $30 / 17%) – as above
  • Best Buy –  Microsoft Surface Pro 4 12.3-inch, Intel Core i5, 128GB for $799.99 (save $200) – a good discount but was $400 on Black Friday
  • Target – Apple TV (4th Generation) 32GB for $149.99 (no discount) + Extra 15% Off at Checkout ($127.49 total) – was $25 off on Black Friday
  • Walmart – Quadrone Hybrid Drone for $99 (save $30) – currently listed as $109 on Walmart’s website so wait for the confusion to clear so you know what you’re paying
