Top 10 Deals for Black Friday 2017

November 19, 2017 5 min read

Black Friday is a shopping extravaganza that started in the US in 1952. Ever since then, the major retailers start working very early on that day and offer various discounts and promotional sales.

Traditionally, Black Friday occurs on the day after Thanksgiving, which falls on the fourth Thursday in November. Black Friday 2017 will fall on November 24. Stores and retailers have already started to announce their discounts. Be prepared for the holiday deals this year!

Here are the top 10 deals for Black Friday 2017.


Rowkin will have many tempting deals for Black Friday 2017. Micro, their smallest and most convenient wireless earbuds will be 25% cheaper. Another one of  their brand new products - Rowkin Surge wireless earbuds which provide impressive sound quality and crystal clear calls - will be 25% off. In addition, Rowkin will offer up to 50% off the rest of their products.

Kohl’s Black Friday 2017 Deals

Kohl’s is one of the first retailers to drop the major Black Friday ads. On October 27th, their 64-page-long ad leaked revealing many interesting deals. Kohl’s will open doors on Thanksgiving at 5:00 pm and the deals will be valid until Friday at 1:00 pm. Kohl’s sale starts online on November 20th and they will offer $15 Kohl’s Cash for each $50 spent.

Here are some of the best deals from the ad:

  • 55-inch Samsung 4K Ultra HD Smart TV - $499.99 (save $500)

  • 55-inch Haier 4K Ultra HD TV - $299.99 (save $100)

  • PlayStation 4 1TB Console - $199.99 (save $100)

  • Canon EOS Retail T6 DSLR Camera two-lens bundle - $449.99 (save $300)

  • Fitbit Blaze smartwatch - $149.99 (save $50)


The predicted average discount for Amazon during Black Friday should be around 25% on their popular items such as Kindle, Tap, and Fire. Some other popular items should be sold very cheaply. For example, the Amazon Echo should be available for $69.99 as well as a 32-inch HDTV. The Fire 7 should be only $29.99 and the Fire HD $49.99. Keep in mind that the minimum that will get you free shipping is $25.

iPhone X, iPhone 8, iPhone 8

Apple introduced the iPhone X, iPhone 8, and iPhone 8 Plus on October 27. Sadly, their prices are higher than ever. iPhone X starts at $999 , iPhone 8 at $699 and iPhone 8 Plus at $700. When it comes to the Apple Store, instead of giving worthy deals they offer gift cards for older products. If you want to buy one of the newest iPhone models, check out Walmart, Best Buy, and Target. They still haven’t released their Black Friday 2017 deals, but here are some predictions based on their previous offers:

  • Retailers won’t reduce the price of the latest iPhone models, but they will offer you a gift card of at least $250 when activating an installment plan.

  • Expect to get at least $100 off iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus (of any size), without activating installment plans.

  • eBay and Amazon are very likely to sell discounted versions of unlocked models.

Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+

Last year, top smartphone deals were for the Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge. Not all stores offered a discount on the retail price. However, many stores offered certain packages instead. For example, you could get a $250 gift card, Samsung Gear VR Headset and $50 Oculus Content Pack if you bought one of the phones. On the other hand, Best Buy took $120 off the Samsung S7 retail price. It wouldn’t be surprising if some stores offered discounts up to $150 on the new S8.


There still aren’t any official Black Friday 2017 deals for laptops, but retailers tend to repeat their deals every year. Brands like Dell and Acer tend to offer the best bang for your buck. Last year, Dell sold their 11.6″ Laptop w/ Intel CPU for $99.99. The retail price of this laptop is $199.

It is very likely that the price for a laptop with decent specs will range from $129.99 to $179.99. Last year, the HP Notebook 15.6″ Laptop with AMD Quad-Core CPU and 4GB RAM was sold for $149.

The cheapest high-end model is expected to cost about $325. In 2016, an HP 17.3″ HD+ Notebook with 6GB of ram and a 1TB hard drive could be purchased for $329. The cheapest gaming laptop could be bought for as low as $450.

Apple laptops are typically discounted by $200 on Black Friday. You can expect the new MacBook Air 128GB SSD storage model to start at $799 and the new MacBook Pro at $1,099.


Even though tablets are not as popular as they used to be, you can still find some great discounts for Black Friday. When it comes to Apple tablets, the iPad Pro 12.9″ 32GB model was sold for $689.99 ($110 cheaper). Recently, Apple upgraded this model to 64 GB and you can expect to buy this model for as low as $674. When it comes to Amazon Fire tablets, you should be able to save $20-$40, depending on the model.

Xbox One S, Xbox One X

Xbox One S should be back for sale on Black Friday 2017 and its price should be lower than ever before. The retail price can be as high as $399. However, you should be able to save at least $70 on your purchase.

The Xbox One X will be released on November 7, 2017. Currently, pre-orders are sold out. However, there should be a small number of the consoles available during Black Friday. The Xbox One X retails for $499 and you should be able to buy it for $449 during the holidays.

PlayStation 4

Sony will not be releasing any new consoles this year. Instead, they upgraded PS4 Slim to 1TB. This model will retail for $299, and you can expect the price to be $249 during Black Friday and Cyber Monday. On the other hand, the PS4 Pro console will retail for $399. Since 2017 marks two years since PS4 Pro started being sold, you can expect heavy discounts this year - up to $100.


Large TVs are cheaper than ever these days and during the Black Friday 2017 sales their prices will sink even more. 32-inch TVs could be as cheap as $70. In 2016, Amazon offered Avera 32-inch TV for $69.99. Based on the last year’s prices, you can expect the lowest price for a 42-inch TV to be around $140, for a 55-inch TV $225 and 60-inch units could be as cheap as $325. Keep in mind that the TVs that have the lowest prices often come from brands that are not quite popular nor reliable.
