Black Friday/Cyber Monday 2013 mobile tech deals

Waiting for the best time to buy anything can be an exercise in frustration, because you never know when you’re going to find a better price — but there are certainly worse times to do some bargain hunting than Black Friday and Cyber Monday.

This year, retailers seem to have extended their Thanksgiving weekend deals into a whole week or month of deals as a way to kick-start the holiday shopping season. Some bargains are better than others, but we’ve rounded up some of the Black Friday 2013 mobile tech deals below.

    I’d like to see more mobile phone deals. The only one in the list is for iPhone.

    Can you provide the regular price for these if possible? Hopefully not the MSRP since most products rarely sell as high as that. I often find most of the Black Friday deals for products I’m interested in aren’t actually that great and not worth the spending time trying to grab them. Thanks!

    • Michael Thompson

      Wouldn’t that information be located at the sites he’s linking to?

      • me

        Very often, the retailer would list the “original” price as the MSRP which they never actually sold the item for. Best Buy, Amazon, Macy’s, Walmart, Target, etc. uses this practice during their “sales”. Most of the links in this article are to the retailers so whatever “original” price they show can’t be trusted.

      • Michael Thompson

        Good stuff. Thanks!

    Well researched folks. The ASUS Transformer appears to have sold out of the Microsoft store at the sale price before your entry says it goes on sale. It has been in sold out status since Monday. Should not have relied on your data, I guess

    wow, so many lists here.. what is your recommendation when it comes to mobile phones?
