Best Black Friday gadget deals of 2017

Black Friday is a huge event for consumers and retailers alike. With the day itself just around the corner, preparing to take advantage of the best deals before they are snapped up by other shoppers is a good idea. Here are just some of the gadget you should keep an eye out for when the sales commence on November the 24th, 2017.

Instax Cameras

Digital cameras may dominate the marketplace, but in the age of Instagram, there has been a resurgence in the popularity of traditional Polaroid snappers. The good news is that there is even a more modern equivalent available for instant photo printing, in the form of Instax by Fujifilm. The manufacturer has confirmed that Brits will be able to buy its cameras at lower prices throughout Black Friday, as well as during the full week leading up to the event itself.

Both cameras and printers from Instax will benefit from price cuts for this limited time, meaning that people who want to get a hard copy of the snaps they take, without hanging around for ages will be able to save money ahead of Christmas. With multi gadget insurance available from gadgetbuddy.com, you can protect however many devices you choose to buy on Black Friday under a single policy.

iPhone 8

Although no retailers have yet announced specific discount details for the current-gen iPhone range from Apple, it is safe to assume that there will be some pretty hefty savings to take advantage of, when the 24th rolls around. This is based on the fact that last year there was competition amongst online outlets to offer the iPhone 7 at the lowest possible price, with some retailers cutting £125 off its RRP.

The same is true of all Apple products, with the iPad Air and iPad Mini set to become cheaper for a 24 hour period, as long as you are willing to act quickly and put up with some of the slowdown and website outages that are part and parcel of the Black Friday experience. The only device which is unlikely to be offered at a lower price point than usual is the flagship iPhone X, if only because it is in short supply at the moment.

PlayStation 3 & Xbox One

Last year on Black Friday, the cost of buying a cutting edge console bundle was pushed down to wallet-friendly levels not normally encountered, with plenty of packages selling for under £200. With the arrival of the PS4 Pro and Xbox One X in the interim, it is a safe bet that their less powerful but no less appealing siblings will be subjected to some even heavier discounting.

There may be more powerful replacements available, but all games have to be compatible with older hardware examples and so you are not at a disadvantage if you pick up a cheap PS4 or Xbox One this Black Friday. Just remember to secure worldwide gadget insurance if you plan to take this or any other gadget overseas, as disaster can strike anywhere and leave you out of pocket.
