Black Friday is officially on November 26, but the Black Friday sales season is absolutely already well underway. Everyone from Amazon to Ebuyer has their virtual shelves bursting with bargains, and that means there are seriously great deals out there. From SSDs to full gaming PCs, TVs to laptops, there’s something for everyone and every budget, as long as you know where to look and what to look out for. And we’re here to help.
We’d recommend starting your deal shopping early, because availability may be the watchword this year, rather than just the almighty ‘deal.’ Tech is only going to become more scarce as we approach the end of the year, so it’s the early deals that stand the best chance of getting to you in time. And while there may be some last-minute deals on November 26, there are enough protection schemes from the major players that you won’t miss out on grabbing an early bargain either.
One thing you’re not going to see this Black Friday is any deals on graphics cards. While the likes of the RTX 3080 and RX 6800 XT are the best graphics cards upgrades we’ve seen in a long, long time, lack of availability means that these don’t need price cuts to sell out. Plenty of gaming PCs built around such cards are out there though, and there are some healthy deals to be had if you’re quick.
So there are deals and plenty of them. Maybe not on graphics cards, but plenty of other components are enjoying large price drops. By way of example, SSDs are enjoying some awesome cuts already and system memory is looking pretty tasty too. We’re seeing plenty of healthy discounts on monitors and TVs too.
We’re also deploying the full bot-powered might of our price comparison engine, to check for the best deals on the key PC gaming product categories every hour of every day.[“source=pcgamer”]
