In the meantime, we have put together a list of top products to watch. Be sure to bookmark this page and visit frequently as Thanksgiving weekend approaches. Here is our speculation (based on our site research), of not only post Thanksgiving weekend shopping bonanza but, of the entire 2013 holiday shopping season.
Electronics - Overproduction on older models of iPad and Tablets are most likely going to result in some major steals, come Black Friday & Cyber Monday. The new iPads will be popular, but we think that Apple iPad 2 16 GB will be priced just right in the Apple Store for the holidays. When we look at the declining prices on GPS systems, they might be a good product to look for on the big day!
Cell Phones - Keep an eye out for deals on the iPhone 4s on Black Friday and Cyber Monday. First and second generation HTC Android smart phones might be dropping to crazy lows (some with plans) with one of the major carriers. These phones all received a lot of attention from retailers on PriceGrabber.
Laptops & Computers - We have great relationships with Lenovo, Dell and others. The three big winners this year on the PriceGrabber have all been Dell. Look for these to be a hit in the holiday season.
- Canon EOS models like the Rebel T3 & T4i
- Panasonic LUMIX
- Sony Alpha NEX models
- Canon PowerShot Models
- Nikon D Series
What is Black Friday?
Black Friday is always the Friday following Thanksgiving. Stores have traditionally slashed prices to entice shoppers to spend big. Retailers have been known to open at 5am across the whole country, and offer “door buster deals”. Over time it has become the unofficial shopping holiday, and start of the Christmas shopping season. The term "Black Friday" has been traced to the 1970s and did not achieve widespread use and popularity until 2002.
What is Cyber Monday?
With the rise of the internet since the 1990’s the cyber world has grown and the way we use the internet has changed over time. As connection speeds got faster, more and more e-commerce sites sprung up on the web and retailers began featuring online stores. In 2003, retailers began to realize that consumers were demanding and buying more inventory online. By 2004, these brick and mortar stores began featuring sales and deals of inventory that didn’t get sold out on black Friday weekend. Cyber Monday was coined naturally, because these were online deals (like Black Friday) but on the Monday immediately following Black Friday. Retailers noticed that many consumers, who were too busy to shop over the Thanksgiving weekend or did not find what they were looking for, loved it!
