The following are a handful of smart home and productivity deals from Dell this year that might just hit the spot:

When Was the 2018 Dell Black Friday Ad Released?

  • November 1st, 2018

Last year the Dell Black Friday ad scan released on November 1st, and Dell continued that tradition for 2018 by releasing their ad scan on the same date. The ad scan is 13 pages long and includes a wide swathe of electronics ranging from the always-popular HDTVs to smaller purchases like a Google Home.

What Doorbuster Deals Does Dell Offer?

This year Dell has hourly doorbusters starting on Thanksgiving at 10 AM, most of which involve impressive savings on computers like the Inspiron Desktop (doorbuster at 6 PM on Black Friday, $200 of savings). Other doorbusters include savings on popular devices like the Xbox One S 1TB "Battlefield V" Bundle and the XPS 15.

What Time Does Dell Open on Black Friday and Thanksgiving 2018?

  • Deals run from 10 AM to midnight on Thanksgiving, and 8 AM to 10 PM on Black Friday

Dell hasn't had a physical showroom for many years now, but its website is open 24/7. While technically there are no doors to bust open, this year's Black Friday deals do activate based on time of day.

When Does the Sale Begin Online?

Early-access Black Friday deals are already available right now, with savings up to $490 on PCs. But you'll need to wait until 10 AM on Thanksgiving day for the doorbuster discounts to kick in.

Which Deals Are Usually Best at Dell on Black Friday?

Computers and TVs are typically Dell's stand-outs for Black Friday. There are a range of other items you might be interested in, but the biggest and most impressive price drops are for things like the Inspiron 22 3000 Touch ($200 savings) and the LG 65" 4K Smart HDR Ultra HDTV plus a $100 Dell Promo eGift Card ($300 savings).

When's the Best Time to Shop?

  • Starting at 10 AM on Thanksgiving day

Now, while Dell offers great deals, quantities tend to be limited and the best offers can sell out quickly. The lesson? Know what you want, add to cart, and check out fast.

More Ways to Save at Dell on Black Friday

If you intend to shop with Dell, consider signing up for Dell Advantage Rewards, where you'll receive 3% back after every purchase towards future purchases. If you apply for their financing program, your rewards are even greater.

Prior to Black Friday, you could also consider trading in your old electronics in exchange for a Dell Gift Card, and then use your gift card balance on new electronics at Dell on Black Friday.
