|This is why Cyber Monday and Shopping online is better than Black Friday|
Black Friday & Cyber MondayThe best deals on all Black Friday & Cyber Monday purchases ironically do not occur on their designated dates. It's an old marketing trick, the best deals actually occur the weeks before Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Even in brick and mortar stores like Best Buy, you'll find the deepest discounts the week prior. Fortunately, you're a smart shopper and know that shopping online beats all the lines and get the best deals. Not to mention that if you have Amazon Prime, you'll get 2-day free shipping. So as you can tell, there is a large cost savings by doing it online. Depending on your state, you may not even have to pay taxes on your purchase up front.

Xbox one is nearly out as well, and they have their fair share of deals too. Not as great as the current PS4 deals, but watch this section, I'll update it as newer or better deals become available. Even the consoles themselves are hard to come by, and if you haven't ordered one yet, you might as well skip this section for now. There is a waiting list at every major retailer, so don't expect deals on the consoles themselves, look for the deals on the games instead.
