Expert Takes: Best Black Friday 2019 Technology Deals

Our team works with professional tech every day. But when it’s time to clock out, what do they enjoy personally?

Black Friday is around the corner so we asked our team to share what tech they’re looking forward to. They even shared go-to websites that are a must-visit after Turkey Day.

From cellphones to secret sites, find out what’s got our teammates excited for Black Friday 2019.

Carlos Lijeron, System Administrator

For the best Black Friday (and year-round) technology deals, I’m headed to Newegg.com or Frys.com.

 

Nate Cohen, Senior Help Desk Technician

Slickdeals.net is great. Not only does this site show you the best deals, it’s community-curated. So you’ve got thousands of people sharing their finds.

I also use Camelcamelcamel.com to track the lowest Amazon prices.

Shawn Hebb, Project Engineer

Black Friday is a great time to renew your cell phone plan. Stores will offer half-off or even BOGO on new phones.

 

Ryan Eastman, Learning and Development Specialist

Best Buy, Best Buy, Best Buy. I always go straight there to see what’s hot. This year, I’ve got my eyes on a 70-inch Samsung TV for under $1,000 and a new PS4 with three games for just $199.

 

Joni Armstrong, Business Services Manager

Amazon’s selling Airpods for $164 on Cyber Monday. That’s $35 off retail and definitely worth it.

 

Brian Thompson, Help Desk Technician

I heard a rumor that the Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL will be $200 off at the Google Store. Cyber Monday only. You can bet I’m checking that out!

 

An Important Note for Businesses

Joni Armstrong, Business Services Manager

For businesses looking at tech deals, skip Black Friday and Cyber Monday.

It may seem like the perfect time to bulk-buy, but January is best for business-class hardware. This is when major manufacturers end their fiscal year and need to move inventory fast.

Al Michaud, FRT Team Lead

Make sure you’re only buying software from authorized distributors. Buyer beware: people can sell the software DISCs, but the license is used or expired. Don’t take that risk.

And remember, keep your receipts! Hardware generally comes with a 30-day warranty. If something goes wrong, show your receipt and take advantage of that warranty.
