This year, retailers have spilled the beans on their Black Friday sales a few good weeks before the big shopping day itself. This way, they want to make sure that customers know what they will be getting.
Joining Walmart and others, Best Buy has now announced its pre-Black Friday sales, and they seem to be pretty appealing. Among Best Buy's limited-time deals we find a first generation iPad Air and a fifth-gen iPod.
Both Apple products have been significantly discounted, and for the next three days, the retailers taking between $80 and $100 off all iPad Air models. Thus, the 16GB Wi-Fi-only iPad Air model is available at just $319. Even if it comes with 2013-date hardware, it's still a pretty good deal.
Best Buy has also taken $50 off the price of the 64GB 5th gen iPod Touch model, making it available for just $249. Also, the Beats Solo HD On-Ear headphones have been discounted $70 and now cost just $99.
Other appealing deals include iHome’s AirPlay speaker system which is just $49.99 right now, normally $299.99, and the water-resistant Ultimate Ears Boom speaker is $20 off at $179.99.
These deals are good through Saturday, but the actual Black Friday promotions will begin on Thursday next week and will run through the weekend to Cyber Monday.
