We’ve already mentioned that some retailers offer deals on gadgets that are manufactured specifically for them. But did you know that sometimes items like TVs are made especially for Black Friday? These models are made to be offered at what looks like a heavily discounted price. So in the case of TVs, they often have things like lower-quality displays, or they lack features that most other models have. If you’re thinking of buying a TV on Black Friday, research the model number. If it’s only offered by one retailer, you might want to think about skipping it and buying a new television at another time of the year. (Perhaps think about purchasing one in the weeks leading up to the Super Bowl, which is a great time for discounts.)
