Just as they’ve do every month, Tiger Direct has claimed the last Friday in October for its monthly Black Friday event. It looks like this month presents a decent opportunity to stock up on computer peripherals like external hard drives, stacks of DVD-Rs and monitors. While the overall verdict from our tech editors was that the sale was “pretty lackluster”, here’s what they singled out as the best deals this month:
- Western Digital Elements External Hard Drive, 3TB, 3.5″, USB 2.0, up to 480 Mbps – $99.99 after coupon code CFJ103723 (regularly $149.99)
- Haier Coolant-Free Compact Refrigerator – $54.99 after coupon code JMN104143 (regularly $99.99)
- HP Digital Camera (16MP) – $74.99 after coupon code BGJ104137 (regularly $139.95)
- Archos 101 Gen9 Tablet, Android 4.0 OS, 8GB – $99.99 (regularly $299.99)
How does this stack up against our expectations for next month’s actual Black Friday deals? We’re expecting to see much better deals in November, when Black Friday is actually a thing and competition on electronics pricing is hot. However, you can expect a different product mix next month, so if one of the deals we mentioned appeals to you, snapping it up now is a safe bet. We’ll post the 2013 Tiger Direct Black Friday ad once we have it.
