Amazon and Google's best Black Friday tech deals

Not looking to take part in a strip-mall stampede? Stay out of the fray and try the world's largest online retailer for bargains.

No one dives deeper into Black Friday than Amazon (AMZN).

The online retail giant is currently hosting a massive Black Friday Deals Week, a period when the company promises to add new deals as frequently as every 10 minutes.

There are so many ways to save that one consumer is unlikely to cash in on every sale. This is why the retailer has a "Missed Deals" section on its Black Friday page -- to show consumers all the ways they failed to save.

As of this writing, Amazon is offering a plethora of older PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Wii U and Nintendo 3DS games at 30 percent (or more) off.

iPhone 5, iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C users can get a water, dirt and snow-proof case from LifeProof for $39.15. That's a $40 savings off the retail price.

TV lovers can enjoy more than $700 off a 46-inch set from Samsung, which currently sells for $647.99.

Later Amazon will offer a deal on a "Cables To Go Audio Selector Switch," another item that appears to be an HDTV antenna amplifier, a work desk treadmill and another iPhone case. Select films and video games are also being added to the list (with discounts that will apparently differ from the current offering), but these sale prices are not yet listed.

Google's Best Deals

Google (GOOG) isn't willing to personally offer a price cut for its devices, but consumers can get a free movie rental with the purchase of a $35 Chromecast.

Google is also offering a $25 Google Play credit to anyone who purchases a Nexus 7.

At the time of this writing, Louis Bedigian had no position in the equities mentioned in this report.

That Samsung TV that is $700 off?!  That price of $647.99 is not the best bargain, the SAME TV is at Walmart with a daily price  cheaper than that one already, not a sales price.  That is a mark up that they are showing $700 off and that prices is still higher than a normal at Walmart.  I don't like Walmart but come on don't try to pass something off as a bargain when it isn't

Operant Conditioning n.  


A process of behavior modification in which a subject (citizen) is encouraged to behave in a desired manner (spend money) through positive reinforcement (the illusion of saving money - getting a good deal), so that the subject comes to associate the pleasure of the reinforcement (the illusion of saving money) with the behavior (spending money).

lol.. I actually bought this same EXACT TV 6 months agoat Best Buy for my in-laws.  I paid $750 for it.  For those of you playing along at home, that's only $100 more than their "$700 off" sales price

Stopped reading the article when it tries to make you believe a 46" Samsung is worth $1347.99.   46" Samsungs have been selling for under $1000 for well over a year,  dishonesty is sales is a sure fire way to get me to ever shop there again.

Be careful while shopping for bargains Home Depot states it gives 10% off to vets on holidays etc. Thats a lie, once I took something back that I bought with the 10% off as a vet. The item was the wrong one so I took it back and told them I need to exchange it for the right one, the lade said okay and I went back to the area where they were and pick out the correct one, then something caught my eye..THE PRICE on the one I had purchase was now 10% lower then when I bought it . They had mark up the price then gave a 10% the word to wise and all vets. If you are retired just show your ID card on ANY day and  get 10% off the same goes for LOWES...If you are just a vet and no ID don't shop on the so called 10% off vets day...they lie!

Obama should have used the same company as Amazon to build his web site!!!! Amazon will do a billion dollars today and never miss a beat!

Is Barry's site working today??

Anything dealing with "black" should be avoided. The day is properly named though, a bunch of hooligans fighting over a bunch of crap in Walmart...

Checked out a printer on Office Max for a super low price, but checking the feedback from former printer owners, a piece of junk, even if they offered it free it would not be worth having.
