What will the Black Friday deals be?

WICHITA — The economy’s late swoon has fooled many retailers and they will probably have to discount big at Christmas, starting with Black Friday, Nov. 25.  The ConsumerSearch blog is guessing Black Friday deals will include:

  • TVs: Mid-level performers, especially 3D models, may see a 50% price cut or be or be bundled with extras such as 3D glasses and 3D Blu-ray players at their lowest prices to date
  • Digital Cameras: The most basic (and poorly-reviewed) cameras will show up in store circulars – and average savings will only be about $10-$20 less than the regular retail price
  • Tablets: HTC Flyer and other similarly capable Android tablets as low as $199 or even less to stay competitive with the Kindle Fire
