Black-Friday is next week and everyone is looking for the best deals of the year. Ultimate website WalletHub recently released a list of the best places to shop for this year’s deals. The discounts range from jewelry, toys and even appliances.
Before you swipe your card at the first deal you see, WalletHub says to look for a discount of at least 37 percent or higher. They say this is the average amount for discounts this year, and finding these deals is the best way to avoid any Black-Friday pitfalls.
Your best deals will come from clothing and accessories stores. They say it has one of the largest sections of discounted products. If you were hoping to find a comfortable deal on a new couch this year, good luck. WalletHub says the furniture segment has the lowest percentage of discounts this year.
Overall, JCPenny, Belk and Macy’s will have the biggest average discounts. Meanwhile, Costco, Best Buy and Amazon have reached the bottom of the list due to low discount averages this year. WalletHub also broke down the list into who has the best deals for different product categories.
If you’re looking for the latest gaming console, Belk is the place to go. With an average discount of 75.56%, shoppers can save up to $250 on the latest Xbox console. Playstation fans can also win in the savings game. Starting early Friday morning, players can get the latest Playstation, the NBA game and a carrying case for $899.99, saving them $280.
According to WalletHub, JCPenny is the place to go for computers and phones. While we didn’t find a huge selection there, we checked out the next best store on the list, Office Depot (and Office Max). There, we found 2-in-1 laptops with savings of $200 or more.
Although Toys R Us is back in Macy’s stores, Belk will prove to be your go-to for the best toy deals. At the department store, toys up to $50 are marked down to just $15. One toy on every kid’s wish list this year is a drone. Although they can be expensive, Belk has you covered. The Sharper Image Drone normally costs $120, but it’s currently on sale for just $36. Belk is also the go-to for home appliances this year.
If you want to bake and need a mixer, Belk has $200 Frigidaire mixers on sale for $80. Air Fryers are also for sale. Belk is offering a $130 savings on the 5-quart Toastmaster Digital Air Fryer.
