Every October and November, shoppers everywhere start searching for the best predictions for Black Friday deals.  This year is no different and there are many great products expected to show up in the Black Friday sales.  Here are some of the most-predicted trends for Black Friday 2014.


The General Forecast

 

Black Friday is probably going to be starting long before the Friday after Thanksgiving.  This year, expect to see stores advertising their Black Friday sales during the week leading up to Black Friday.  In fact, some retailers are already jumping on the Black Friday bandwagon and having phenomenal sales in the early part of November.

Online Deals

 

In the past several years, many retailers have offered their door buster deals online; door buster deals were also often left online long after the brick-and-mortar store had stopped selling them.  That trend is likely to continue this year, as is the trend for very aggressive Black Friday offerings from various online retailers.  Larger retailers may also have different Black Friday offerings online than they do in their stores.  Not only will online deals be plentiful on Black Friday, but expect to see great online deals during Cyber Monday and Green Monday, as well.

Offering: Televisions

 

Televisions will probably continue to be a popular Black Friday offering.  The trends in televisions involve ever-increasing sizes and ever-decreasing prices, so be on the lookout for excellent deals on huge televisions.  If you are in need of a smaller television, you will probably run into a few good door busters on those, but do not expect door buster-type savings on very large screens.  More advanced televisions like the Curve are not expected to be part of the Black Friday frenzy, simply because they are so new.  Lesser, unbranded televisions will likely offer the best savings.  Door busters rarely involve name-brand products, so be watchful and know what you’re getting.

Offering: Fashion

 

Either online or off, clothing and apparel typically have very good discounts during Black Friday sales.  This trend is also beginning to take hold on Cyber Monday and Green Monday, as well.  These are excellent times to shop around and use any coupons or discounts; you might have to get even bigger savings on Black Friday apparel sales.


Offering: Tablets/e-Readers

 

Tablets and eReaders have been hot items for a couple of years and are expected to be so again this year.  Companies like Amazon and Samsung are likely to offer lower pricing on the Kindle Fire and Galaxy tablets, and some tablets and eReaders will be available for less than $30.  A seven-inch tablet with an Android OS should be available for around $29 on Black Friday.


Early Sales

 

While some retailers have decided not to open on Thanksgiving Day, others are lining up to get their doors open as quickly as possible after the turkey has been eaten.  Macy’s, Kohl’s, Sears and JCPenney are all opening their doors on Thanksgiving evening, while stores like Costco, Lowe’s, Home Depot and Sam’s Club will remain closed until Black Friday.

  1. I'm more of an online Black Friday shopper...those crowds are intimidating and opening on Thanksgiving Day is just ridiculous! I'm in the market for a few specific toys for my sweet nieces and nephews :) I hope they will be on sale!!

    1. I did a Black Friday once on Thanksgiving day and the crowds are so brutal! I don't know if it is even worth it; I'm more of a Cyber Monday person anyway.

  2. We always go Friday after all the mass chaos. Sometimes we go on Thursday night just to see the lines but I don't stand in them. Last year we got a great deal on a TV after all the chaos which was really nice!

    1. I'm in the market for a new tv now so I hope to score a good deal on one. But I don't see myself standing in line to get one.

  3. I have done Black Friday once and refuse to go anytime on Thanksgiving. I was hoping to get a new TV to surprise my hubby, fingers crossed I can find something online as I won't even be home Friday.

    1. I don't blame you for not shopping on Thanksgiving. People should be using that day to enjoy time with their families.

  4. I'm really excited about the online deals. I'm happy stores are making deals more accessible to those of us who don't want to be up at 3 am. :] // ▲ itsCarmen.com ▲

  5. I think I'm going to try the online deals this year-don't think I'm up to the crowds and "personalities" this year.

    2. Now that is not fair at all Sarah that they are opening Thanksgiving day and you don't get time to spend with your family. All these stores think about is money. I hope at least they pay you time 1/2.
