These Are the 10 Most Popular Black Friday 2017 Deals According to the Slickdeals Community
The people have spoken. Tech-lovers? You're in for a treat. The most popular Black Friday 2017 deals, according to the eagle-eyed Slickdeals community, revolve around digital goodies.
If you haven't already prepped your Black Friday gameplan, you're going to want to start now. Some of these deals are delectable enough to get you out into the bitter fall cold for this November's Black Friday savings.
Don't root around in the ad swamp for the best Black Friday deals. The results are in, and the winners are the following. Drum-roll, please?
50" Sharp LC-50LBU591U 4K 2160p Smart Ultra HD Roku TV
Coming in at first place for the most popular Black Friday 2017 deal is... the 50" Sharp LC-50LBU591U 4K 2160p Smart Ultra HD Roku TV! It will be available in-store only at Best Buy for $179.99.
It's currently available from Best Buy for $499.99, and while we did see a price drop in October to $380 from Best Buy, the Black Friday price is a smoking hot deal. You're saving $320, just like the ad claims, and you're getting a pretty slamming TV for your time.
However, there have been some grumblings regarding Best Buy's supply of stock on good deals for Black Friday. Since this is an in-store deal only, you'll want to be one of the first in line at your local Best Buy. It's probable there won't be enough to assuage the foaming, tech-hungry crowd.
Google Home Mini
Second place goes to a specific deal for the Google Home Mini, but there are a variety of options for this particular device that have made their way into the most popular Black Friday deals of 2017.
The Slickdeals community's favorite Google Home Mini deal is Target's price of $29, plus a $10 Target gift card. You can snag this deal either online or in-store for Black Friday. Best Buy also has a deal for the Google Home Mini: $29.99 plus a $10 Best Buy gift card. Don't need a gift card? Walmart is selling the same for $29, which is Target's deal... without the extra 10 bucks.
The Google Home Mini retails at $49, so the $29 price tag plus extra goodies is a great deal. Other retailers, like Staples, have similar deals as well for Black Friday, ($29 plus a $10 Visa gift card) so pick your favorite business and make a run for your pint-sized Google Home.
55" Sharp 4K Smart TV
Walmart's deal for the 55" Sharp 4K Smart TV scrabbled its way into third place past several other impressive TV offerings for Black Friday.
Grab this 55" wonder for just $298 from Walmart, both online and in-store. There is some speculation as to which model it is exactly, and there is some suggestion that this TV is the one they will be selling. That means there's a chance it comes with HDR, but we'll have to wait until someone gets their hands on one to see.
Another semi-recent deal on a 55" Sharp 4K Smart TV was from Sam's Club, and they had it listed at $458. However, that was with the guarantee that it came with UHD HDR. Either way, we're happy to grab any 55" 4K Smart TV for under $300.
Sony PlayStation 4 1TB
Been holding out? We understand. And it's time to cash in on that patience with some screamingly good PS4 deals on Black Friday. The Slickdeals community's favorite is Kohl's offering: $199.99 plus $60 Kohl's Cash.
Since the PS4 1TB is regularly $299.99, you're getting a whopping 100 bucks off, plus a healthy dose of Kohl's freebies. Can't take advantage of Kohl's Cash? Grab the GameStop offering of $199.99, plus a $60 GameStop gift card. Don't care for free cash? Stop by Costco for their $100 off plus a controller deal, but keep in mind these controllers are going for $39 this Black Friday.
If you've been waiting, now's the time to leap onto your preferred PS4 1TB deal and latch on with all your might. You won't be the only one trying to buy one.
Microsoft Xbox One S 500GB Console
Prefer rocking Microsoft's hardware to Sony's? We won't judge. There are plenty of Xbox One S deals out there for you, too. Target wins this battle for the Slickdeals community's heart with its price of $189.99, plus a $25 Target gift card.
If you love Kohl's, you can get the Xbox One S 500GB for $189.99, plus $45 in Kohl's Cash. Or, buy straight from the source with this Microsoft deal: $189 plus a free game of choice and a 1 month Xbox Game Pass. Sure, the games are "select games," which seem to include titles like "Just Dance 2018" and "Hasbro Family Fun Pack," but a free game is a free game, right?
The Xbox One S 500GB normally retails for somewhere around $279.99, so all three popular Black Friday deals are already kind to your wallet. You just need to decide which extra loot you'd care to have.
WD Easystore 8TB External USB 3.0 Hard Drive (Black)
Best Buy comes through again with its stellar external hard drive offering for Black Friday. This particular hard drive comes with an additional 250GB of Cloud Storage, and will be available both online and in-store.
Best Buy's offering is simple: a straight money-for-product deal, with no gift card shenanigans. Pay your $129.99 and you're out the door, brand-new hard drive safely in tow.
The same external hard drive could be had for $179.99 on Ebay in October, and many people guessed that it would be a lot cheaper for Black Friday, since there were other similar (and slightly lower) prices floating around. Black Friday is here. And it's a lot cheaper.
For less of a wallet-buster, take a look at the much-favored deal on the Google Chromecast at Best Buy. Best Buy will be selling it at $19.99 for Black Friday, online and in-store.
The Google Chromecast is a media player that lets you stream music to every room of your house, access over 100 apps, and use your smartphone as a remote. It retails normally for $35 at Best Buy. You can also buy it at Walmart for Black Friday at a price tag of $20, plus a $5 Vudu Credit.
For a slightly less awesome price, check out Staples' and Office Depot's identical deals for $25 on Black Friday regarding the Google Chromecast. We've seen similar prices throughout the year, but Best Buy's $19.99 is one of the highest ranked Black Friday deals for 2017.
Amazon Fire TV Stick with Alexa Voice Remote
Target hits another bulls-eye with their Black Friday deal on the Amazon Fire TV Stick with Alexa Voice Remote. Don't worry about running to your local brick-and-mortar -- this deal is available there, but also online.
The deal is $24.99 for the Amazon Fire TV Stick, which normally retails at $39.99. Best Buy is also offering a great deal on this product right now, charging just $25 and providing free shipping, but you have to be an Elite or an Elite Plus member to enjoy the savings.
Furthermore, Frys has a sweet Black Friday deal for the Amazon Fire TV Stick, selling it for just $24.98. Sure, that might only be a penny cheaper than Target, but Target is really only a penny cheaper than Best Buy. Regardless, "penny-pinching" is a positive trait here at Slickdeals, so we'll take it, thank you very much.
HP Pavilion Power Desktop Intel Core i5, 8GB Ram, 1TB HDD, GTX 1060, Win 10
The only computer to have made it into the top most popular Black Friday 2017 deals is the HP Pavilion Power Desktop Intel Core i5 (sorry, PC gamers). Originally priced at $649, Walmart is selling this powerhouse for $499, online and in-store.
The Slickdeals community seems to agree that this particular deal, given the model of the desktop and its NVIDIA GTX 1060 3GB graphics hardware, is well worth the price tag. It's stylized as being a "gaming" and "creation" machine.
Walmart's deal on this tower offers you $150 of savings, so we suggest checking our video games section and splurging on some Black Friday gaming deals with your extra cash.
55" Haier 4K HDTV
Kohl's rounds out our list of the most popular Black Friday deals for 2017 on Slickdeals with its 55" Haier 4K HDTV doorbuster. Normally $399.99, Kohl's is selling it for $299.99, plus $90 in Kohl's Cash for Black Friday.
The "Kohl's Cash" bit is always a little sticky. It's certainly harder to spend $90 in Kohl's Cash than it is to spend just $90, but, hey. You're already saving $100 off of the original price tag, and that's pretty hard to beat. Plus, Kohl's has a huge variety of products for you to burn that money on. Easy come, easy go.
Are you gearing up to grab any of this loot? Ready to stand outside in the terrible cold, waiting eagerly for that 50" Sharp TV? Let us know in the comments section below, and don't forget to enjoy your Thanksgivings in the ensuing Black Friday madness!
