It’s Black Friday, and retailers are at the generous best, offering lucrative discounts and deals that are simply hard to resist. But then, not all deals are as simple and straight forward as they might seem, with the devil lurking in the fine print.
Mentioned here are some of the best deals that are likely to have the least impact on buyer’s pockets, either on the short-term or over the following months.
iPhone 8/8 Plus, iPhone X: These come across as regular upgrades over the preceding iPhone version and unlike the innovative iPhone X, are conventional at best so far as the looks are concerned. It can also be hard to fathom why anybody would opt for the iPhone 8 given the availability of the radical new iPhone X.
But then, an iPhone is an iPhone, and even the most uninspiring of these gets lapped up with the upmost of zeal. And a $200 discount off the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus from Best Buy is perhaps the best thing they can hope for. The deal, however, requires agreeing to a Sprint plan which makes the iPhone 8 priced at $650 while the iPhone 8 Plus is priced $750.
Those opting to buy the iPhone 8, 8 Plus or the iPhone X from Walmart are in for a $300 store gift card. The deal comes as per AT&T and Verizon plans.

LG G6, V30: The G6 may not be the best out there running as it does a slower Snapdragon chip, but it isn’t a slouch either. It comes across as a thoroughly decent package for anyone opting for something else, and Best Buy has added more reason to opt for LG’s first flagship of the year.
LG is also offering a $400 discount on the V30 and V30 Plus handsets provided buyers agree to club the purchase with any other LG product.
