We’ve listed info on stores that have Black Friday tech deals 2018. Be sure to check back often, as we’ll be updating the deals as soon as they are released.

Black Friday falls on the 23rd of November (just before payday, but if you work for a company that pays you on the weekend before, lucky you) and a few deals will actually extend for the whole weekend, with more deals being released on Cyber Monday (26 November). And with retailers promising that Black Friday will be bigger than ever this year, it is the perfect time to get tech items that you always wanted at a discounted price. Here are the best Black Friday tech specials you can look forward to.

Last year the most popular tech items during Black Friday in South Africa were:

  1. Apple Watch
  2. Smart speakers (Amazon Echo or Google Home)
  3. Smartphones
