      What Will be the Best Headphone Discounts on Black Friday 2018?

      It’s hard to say right now (still a couple of weeks left). There’s some info on what headphones will be discounted no holidays, but you’ll see the best deals when they’re actually available.

      This is why we’re updating this Black Friday headphone guide daily, so you get the best deals when the day comes.

      What is Black Friday?

      Black Friday is an informal holiday the day after Thanksgiving (in America). The day is November 23rd. And what makes it the unofficial commercial holiday is that stores all over America offer promotional deals and discounts on everything you can imagine.

      It’s a big shopping holiday.

      Today, you can get discounts before and after the actual day. Usually, the deals start with November 1st and then continuing towards Cyber Monday.

      You can find deals over the weekend, from (Black) Friday to (Cyber) Monday as well, to keep people interested in spending more.

      What is Cyber Monday?

      Cyber Monday is a new marketing term coined in 2005 as the name for the Monday after Thanksgiving to persuade people to shop online. It happens 3 days after Black Friday on 26th November, and it’s one of the biggest shopping days in the year.

      What’s different is that it focuses on online deals.

      Basically, it prolongs the sales and makes more money for retailers (like Prime Day increases sales for Amazon in summer).

      Cyber Monday deals are often the same as they just prolong the discounts from previous campaigns.

      Why Should You Care About Black Friday?

      Well, if you want to get your hands on a new pair of headphones with a significant discount, then you should check the offers. On Black Friday day (it’s always on Friday) and before and after, retailers offer special deals on their wares, headphones included.

      It’s always smart to save some money by getting a nice discount. It’s one of the best ways to get more for your money.

      When Will the First Black Friday Offers Appear?

      Most and usually the best are on the actual Black Friday day on November 23rd.

      That said, you can find great deals sooner since retailers start their holiday season deals at the beginning of the month, so after November 1st.

      For this reason, we’re checking for new offers every day. So you get the latest and best and don’t miss on a good deal.

      Are All Black Friday Deals Good?

      Honestly, not really. Some brands increase their prices before the holidays so they can claim bigger discounts. So you’re getting the same discounts as during the year.

      But generally, most companies offer some kind of a deal, and you can even find amazing discounts if you dig deeper.

      You can easily find 50% off on high-end headphones (like the Sony noise-cancelling headphones a year ago) which can save you more than $100 per purchase.

      On big-ticket items you can save even more—like TVs and Cameras.

      Do Black Friday Deals Apply to Online Shopping, or are They Only Available in Physical Stores?

      Don’t worry. All Black Friday deals and discounts apply to online as well as physical stores. And on Cyber Monday—the first Monday after Thanksgiving—some deals are only available online. So, stay at home and click away, you’re not missing anything.

      You’ve probably seen the crazy videos from supermarkets where people literally fight for things to buy if the stock is low. Now, shopping doesn’t look like that in all brick-and-mortar stores, but it’s still crowded, and you run the risk of not being quick enough to get what you want.

      So if you want to avoid the crowds in stores and not waste time waiting in lines, “plug in your modem” and surf for the best bargains online.

      Online shopping is quicker and hassle-free, no competition from chaotic shoppers and you can do it all from the comforts of your couch.

      Free shipping on black friday

      How is Shipping on Black Friday? (if you don’t want to wait)

      In truth, the waiting time for delivery on Black Friday is usually a bit longer.

      Sure they can promise same-day deliveries (like Amazon Prime on some products), but you can’t rely 100% on that promise.

      The usual policy most online retailers offer is free 2-day shipping. It means you get your item 2 working days after it’s been shipped (excluding weekends). In most cases, you wait between 2-3 days and less than a week.

      On holiday days, on the other hand, the postal services get swamped with deliveries because everybody has something to send or to be delivered.

      You should expect fast delivery (as usual), but in some cases might be 1-3 days late. That’s not so bad and definitely beats dealing with crowds and long waiting lines (for most people and if you already know what you want to buy).

      Who offers free 2-day shipping?

      • Amazon Prime members get free 2-day shipping all year round with no minimum order size. For non-Prime members, you get standard shipping—5 to 8 days—with a $25 minimum order to be eligible.
      • Walmart offers free 2-day shipping for orders over $35.
      • Target has free 2-day shipping without minimum order requirement.
      • Best Buy offers free shipping but only standard which is slower (wait a couple days more).

      Waiting for a new product that you’ve been wanting for so long is part of the fun. Patience helps with better mental health and personal development. You can read on the actual science behind here.

      If that’s not reason enough to exercise some patience, I don’t know what is.
