Black Friday may seem like a prime time to buy a new smartphone, with many handsets going for free with a two-year contract and other deals including $1 or 1 cent contract prices, but the latest iPhone or Galaxy device is actually not a top seller on this infamous shopping day. Tablets are one of the best products to purchase on Black Friday, according to many sources such as DealNews.
Not only do retailers put generous price cuts on tablets for Black Friday but also many models do not require a contract. This means shoppers don’t have to spend any extra money after the initial purchase. Tablets are a great option for those wanting a discount on a gift for the techie in their lives.
