While 2020 seems to be going by in a flash, it means that we’re creeping towards the holiday period, and with that, Black Friday. With the big shopping event on the horizon, it means that retailers are gearing up for some notable specials and offers; and when looking back at the standout sales of yesteryear, there’s a clear pattern of which categories and products tend to get the biggest discounts. So, looking into our crystal ball, here are the deals and categories to look out for in 2020:
Gaming is going to be a biggie
With the incoming next-gen consoles, namely the Xbox Series X and Playstation 5, on the cards for a Q4 release, it’s extremely likely that we’ll be seeing some big discounts on the current Xbox One and PS4 consoles and bundle options. While we may not see any specials on the Series X and PS5, it’s a great time to pick up one of Microsoft, Sony, or Nintendo’s previous consoles if you’ve been on the fence about them.

Smartphone upgrade on the cheap
The smartphone market in 2020 has been an interesting one, with more mid-range phones with high-end tech specs being released than ever before. With expensive flagship sales on the decline, it’s safe to say that the retailer focus will be shifted to mid-tier phone specials for Black Friday. Expect to see the likes of Huawei’s P40, the iPhone XR, Samsung Galaxy S10 and S20 going on sale during Black Friday.

With summer rolling into full flight in South Africa during the November/December period, and winter and spring on their way out, it’s the perfect time to pick up some great fashion items. Due to the mid-season switch over, one tends to find everything from jackets and jerseys to shirts and shorts on sale from the big fashion retailers around South Africa; so you essentially get a wide selection of anything you need from a clothing perspective.

Of course, this is a no-brainer for Black Friday. Much like gaming releases, TVs are also coming out at an unprecedented rate with the technology evolving at a rapid pace. Black Friday has always been a opportunistic time to nab a new TV, and 2020 should be no different. Look out for deals on Hisense, Samsung, and LG TVs particularly.
