Black Friday 2017 deals in the US: preparing for Walmart, Target and Amazon ads

$50 off PS4 with Uncharted 4 bundle
The PS4 is a brilliant console, and last Black Friday it was a brilliant bargain too: the best-selling console bundle was $50 off for the PS4 500GB with Uncharted 4 at Amazon, Best Buy, GameStop, Target and more, bringing its price to $249.

$1,301 off Sony Ultra HD 4K TV
How’s this for a discount: Black Friday meant a massive $1,301 off the Sony 65″ XBR Ultra 4K LED Smart HDTV, bringing its price down to a much less scary $998. There was also $400 off Samsung 4K TVs and over $200 off LG 4K OLED TVs. 

Best Black Friday deal 2017 predictions

iPhone 8 and iPhone X deals
By Black Friday, both the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X will be available. And anyone that’s waiting that long to get the latest and greatest iPhones should expect to see some kind of deals popping up for the devices. You’ll have to act fast though, as these will be some of the most popular deals of the shopping day, and iPhone X supplies are likely to be very limited. Expect deals similar to 2016’s $100 price cut and gift cards included with the purchase. iPad deals will probably pop up alongside iPhone deals.

Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy Note 8 deals
We’ve already seen loads of crazy deals for the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus. Now the Galaxy Note 8 and Galaxy S8 Active have joined the family, and when Black Friday 2017 rolls around, there will undoubtedly be huge deals on the whole lot. We’ll just have to wait and see if those deals are sweeping discounts, freebies like wireless charging docks and 360 cameras or buy-one-get-one offers.

Google Pixel 2 deals
This is a bit up in the air, but rumor has it that Google may have a Pixel 2 in the works with a launch possible in early October. While the release is expected in late 2017, that could still see a release in time for some slick Black Friday or Cyber Monday deals to make the new flagship an affordable one.

PS4 Pro deals
Black Friday 2016 was all about the PS4 Slim, and Black Friday 2017 will be all about the PS4 Pro. As with 2016 we’d expect the very best deals to be on bundles, with some of them costing only a little more than the PS4 Pro itself, so start working on your game wish list: a bundle’s only a good deal if it includes the games you actually want to play. Up to now, the PS4 Pro is holding its MSRP but you can expect that to change later this year, particularly when Microsoft has launched the Xbox One X…

Xbox One X deals
Microsoft’s got a pro console too, and unless something goes wrong with the release schedule it will be on sale long on November 7  — right in time for Black Friday 2017. As with the Xbox One in 2016 we’d expect to see the very best deals on bundles, rather than on the console itself: there’s more wiggle room for the retailer there, so they can afford to be more daring with the discounts.

4K HDR OLED TV deals
Black Friday 2016 was positively packed with TV deals, including nearly half-price deals on select TVs. High-end sets are where the really expensive MSPRs are, and the ever-advancing world of TV tech means those prices can only be sustained for a fairly short time. If you’re in the market for the kind of TV with a price tag that wouldn’t look out of place on a car, Black Friday 2017 could be a very good day for you indeed.

4K Ultra HD Blu-ray players deals
4K Ultra HD is in an upswing, as more affordable 4K TVs hit the market. While streaming services offer 4K content, the best experience comes from 4K Ultra HD Blu-rays. Come Black Friday, and you can expect to see plenty of 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray players sitting alongside high-end TVs with the best discounts on both.
