Roundup: Black Friday 2014 Tech Deals On Apple, Google, Microsoft Products
Every year, Black Friday brings us closer to crossing off all those electronic gadgets on our humble wish-list, but with deals swarming the Internet like the stars around the earth, it often gets overwhelming. If you were looking for a quick overview of some of the best tech deals to be had from Apple, Google and Microsoft, we have rounded them up here.
Black Friday or not, Microsoft has been on fire with some of its offerings lately, chiefly concerning the software side of things. As for gadgets and electronics, the tech giant has thrown in some comprehensive deals for the Xbox One and the older Xbox 360 consoles. For example, you can get an Xbox One 1TB console with Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare for just $429, or if you were looking to buy just the console, Microsoft is pitching in a free game and a further $70 discount as well. Plenty more deals to go around, and if you were looking to save some dough on gaming titles, these deals have you covered.
Plenty of deals to go around for everyone here as Amazon cuts down the price of Fire Phone to a mere $199. Samsung’s Galaxy S3 is going cheaply for $79 on Verizon Wireless and Sprint from Best Buy, while the Galaxy Note 4 can be had for $0 on contract, but with an equipment installment program.
More so, the famous "flagship killer" – OnePlus One – can now be bought without needing an invite, while in another interesting development, the potent LG G Watch can now be had for a lowly $99 only directly from the Play Store.
As predicted, Apple itself is not offering any discounts on its products, but has initiated a one-day-only deal where it’s offering free (PRODUCT)RED iTunes gift cards – ranging between $25 and $100 – on the purchase of select items.
However, outside of Apple retail stores, there are an array of deals worth looking into. If you’re looking for a Mac, then the new 21.5-inch iMac can be had at $899.99 – a good $200 less, while even the new 27-inch iMac with Retina 5K display can bought for $200 less.
There are plenty of discounts on MacBooks as well ranging from $100 to $150, and as for the iPhones, you can find some sweet contract deals on the new iPhone 6, but not much to dig into for off-contract ones. If you were to ask me, my pick of the deals on Apple products right now would be the iPad Air 16GB Wi-Fi going for $299 only.
