It’s that magical time of year again. Trees are being decorated, potatoes are being collected for latkes, and oh wait, it’s actually still November. That can in fact only mean one thing, and that is the arrival of Black Friday. Over the years it’s really morphed into Black November; however, on November 24 consumerism in America will be realized in the form of new video game systems, endless makeup, a couple of ugly sweaters, and of course tablets, computers, and smartphones.

Last year we showed you a few sites to save money, track things on Amazon since occasionally their sellers create fake sales, and maybe get some cash back along the way. This year we’re doing a bit of the heavy lifting for you and looking at some of the best Black Friday deals for this holiday season.


Amazon has already kicked off their ongoing deals for Black Friday, but the biggest deals start on November 17. Interested how those new TVs will look in your home? Their new app has you covered.

Something a Little Different

Each year the creators of Cards Against Humanity do something either creative or terrible around the holidays. At one point they asked for money just to dig a giant hole and live streamed the entire thing. It pulled in about $100,000. This year they’ve decided to focus on the one thing none of us can avoid, politics. As such, they’ve launched a new campaign dubbed Cards Against Humanity Saves America. For $15 they will send you six random gifts, including joint ownership of a small plot of land along President Trump’s proposed border wall. These campaigns tend to have a small signup window, so keep that in mind.

The Non-Black Friday

In recent years there has been a lot of debate regarding whether or not stores should actually open up on Thanksgiving, and then there is REI. Instead of any kind of Black Friday deals in their stores, for the past few years they’ve launched #OptOutside, hashtag and all, that encourages people to spend time together in the great outdoors.

However you decide to spend your Thanksgiving and the weekend after, the folks here at TechCo wish you all the best.

Stay tuned for the rest of our guide throughout the season. We’ll be covering holiday guides for Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality, the DIYer, cannabis, entrepreneur, STEM, and various others.
