Lenovo is among tech sellers offering pre-Black Friday deals, though you’ll need to act fast if interested since its offers end on Nov. 4
The company’s biggest price cut for professional laptops is 30% off the ThinkPad Yoga 12 (2nd generation), which brings its cost down to $720. The computer boasts an Intel Core i7 processor, Windows 8.1 Pro, 8GB of RAM and 1GB of storage. As the product name might clue you in, it has a 12.5-inch display.
Sam’s Club hasn’t leaked any Black Friday deals yet, but has revealed its one-day (Nov. 14) in-store and online Holiday Savings sale. Actual Black Friday deals will start on Thanksgiving Day online, and in store at 7AM on Black Friday (confused?).
The BestBlackFriday.com website says that Sam’s Club tipped holiday iPhone pricing a year ago and does so again this season. Among its Holiday Savings sale deals: iPhone 6S for $99 (16GB) to $299 (128GB) and the iPhone 6S Plus for $199 (16GB) to $399 (128GB) with a 2-year contract from Sprint, Verizon or US Cellular. What’s more, Sam’s throws in a $200 gift card. Apple promotes the iPhone 6S for starting at $199 with a 2-year Verizon contract, or sells the phone itself for $650.
Among the other bargains: $300 for a PlayStation 4 bundle with a game that varies by club (this represents a $50 savings).
Separately, Amazon has begun ticking off the days until Black Friday with its Countdown to Black Friday Deals Week. Amazon Prime members will gain early access to thousands of Lightning Deals 30 minutes before non-members, according to the BlackFriday.com website. If you’re looking for a glamour gift, consider the APC BR1500G Back-UPS 1500VA 10-outlet Uninterruptible Power Supply for $161, which is 48% off the usual price.
If it’s toys you’re after, LEGO has released its Holiday 2015 Catalog, which features 52 pages of blocky goodness. You get a free LEGO holiday train with any $99 purchase, and as you probably know, it doesn’t take many LEGO sets to get you there. A Star Wars Sandcrawler set, for instance, will set you back $300 for its 3,300 pieces.
Walmart has also released a 40-page Wonder of Christmas Toy Book with deals good until Christmas Eve. Toys R Us, Target and Kmart toy books have also been published by retailers and/or Black Friday watcher sites.
