If you’re looking to save on tech products, there’s no need to wait until the Friday after Thanksgiving this year. Retailers are already getting a jump on Black Friday sales. You’ll find amazing discounts for the entire month of November, many of which guarantee Black Friday pricing. That means if the sale prices you see today drop any lower between now and Black Friday, you’ll get refunded the difference. Best Buy is running Black Friday guarantees all month long, and Newegg’s “Black November” sale is in full swing with a similar pledge.
Newegg’s Black Friday sale features hefty discounts on tons of items, all of which have a badge that reads, “Black Friday Price Protection.” Really, it should read “Cyber Monday Price Protection” because if you purchase a product with that badge between now and Nov. 22, Newegg will refund you the difference if its price drops lower on or before Cyber Monday, Nov. 30.
Right now, Newegg has steep discounts on a wide range of items. But note that these prices dry up by Monday, so you’ll want to take a look now (and some products are selling out at these prices, so don’t take too long).
You can browse all of Newegg’s Black Friday Price Protection Deals here, but keep reading to see our favorite picks.
