Want to stay home during Christmas but still get yourself a bargain? Don’t worry, Amazon along with Best Buy BBY +0.77% has arguably 2016’s best Black Friday deals. Here are the deals you should jump on and the ones you should avoid…

Note: my thanks to Christmas which has worked with me to collate these deals and create order from the inevitable annual chaos

Star Buys

As is typical for Amazon, many of the best deals come on its own products and there are top class bargains here:

  • Save $10 on Echo Dot, only $39.99
  • Save $40 on Amazon Tap, only $89.99
  • Save $25 on Fire Kids Edition tablet, only $74.99 ($84.99 last year)
  • Save $30 on Fire HD 8, only $59.99
  • Save $30 on Kindle Voyage, only $169.99
  • 55” LG 4K Smart TV, $398 – wait for the model number, but this is potentially a very strong deal
  • Blue Yeti USB Microphone, $89.99 – a bestseller on Amazon and with a decent $40 discount

Solid Deals

Not all Amazon products get a top discount (notably in comparison to Amazon’s own Prime Day), but many are still worth having as are some significant television reductions.

Black Friday tip: always remember to check the specific TV model when retailers release them before making a purchase. Even the best manufacturers have weak models in their line-up that you are better off avoiding, so do your research.

Treat With Caution

While many Amazon products are rock solid deals, not everything on Amazon this Black Friday is worth your hard earned cash. Steer clear of these ‘deals’…

  • 32-inch 720p LED TV, $69.99 – price almost too good to be true, but the lack of brand makes me suspicious on what is being sold here
  • 43-inch 4K Ultra HD Smart TV, $199 – as above. No brand TVs can be very poor
  • Top-selling Blu-ray Disc Player, $49.99 – no brand mentioned, decent brands can be found at a similar price already
