Best Black Friday Amazon Deals 2017
When it comes to great Black Friday deals, Amazon tends to beat out a lot of its competitors. Amazon has deals rolling all year long, but they usually ramp up their bargains just after Thanksgiving. From video games and consoles, to tech and other gadgets, Amazon is guaranteed to offer some great discounts come November 24th. Let’s take a look back at some of Amazon’s Black Friday deals from last year to get an idea for what’s to come.
Best Black Friday Amazon Console Deals
With the launch of the PS4 Pro and PS4 Slim last year, many retailers took the opportunity to offer specials on the original PlayStation 4 console. Amazon took part in the Black Friday extravaganza by offering a limited edition Uncharted 4 PS4 500GB console bundle for only $338. While the savings wasn’t huge, many people flocked to grab the discounted PS4 bundles while they could.
Amazon had some Black Friday console specials for Xbox players as well. One deal featured 500GB and 1TB Xbox One S bundles that came with popular games like Battlefield 1 and Minecraft, saving gamers up to $50 in some cases.
Amazon will likely offer similar console bundles this year for both PS4 and Xbox One, with popular games included in each bundle as an added incentive. Check back here as Thanksgiving draws near to stay up to date on the latest Amazon console deals for Black Friday.
Best Black Friday Amazon Video Game Deals
Along with console bundles, Amazon also had a number of enticing video game deals during Black Friday last year. Popular triple-A titles like Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, DOOM, and Fallout 4 all were offered at reduced prices, which is pretty good considering some of those titles had just released shortly before the big sale.
We suspect Amazon will have similar bargains during Black Friday 2017, with deals on triple-A games that could use a sales boost, along with older titles. If you’ve been waiting to purchase some new games this year, then perhaps it’s worth waiting a bit longer for Amazon’s Black Friday game deals.
Best Black Friday Amazon Deals on PC Hardware
If you’re a PC gamer, then you’ll probably want to keep an eye out for some PC hardware deals on Amazon this Black Friday. Amazon ran a promotion last year that featured an ASUS FX502VM 15.6" gaming laptop for $1000, a $250 savings. A system like that could run nearly any game, and comes with the convenience of portability. PC gamers could also enhance their gaming audio thanks to Amazon’s deal on the SteelSeries Siberia 800 wireless headset, which ran for just $200 during Black Friday last year.
Best Black Friday Amazon TV Deals
With the popularity of 4K resolution and smart TVs on the rise, we expect to see several TV deals from Amazon during Black Friday again this year. Here’s a couple noteworthy TV deals featured on Amazon for Black Friday last year:
- LG B6 55" 4K OLED Smart TV for $1799 (usually $3999).
- Samsung 65" Curved TV for $1599 (usually $1999).
With the 4K-ready Xbox One X and PS4 Pro pushing gamers toward higher screen resolutions, it’s reasonable to expect Amazon to respond to the growing demand for 4K TVs by offering alluring deals during Black Friday. If you want to upgrade your console and equip your entertainment setup for 4K, then you’ll want to check Amazon for some of the best Black Friday 2017 TV deals.

Those of you who don’t typically shop on Amazon may not realize the benefits of having an Amazon Prime Account. However, being a Prime member can significantly boost your savings and allow you to partake in various specials all year long, meaning the membership practically pays for itself.
For $99 a year, you can also get priority access to certain deals while enjoying the perks of other Amazon features, including Amazon Prime Video and Twitch Prime. If you are a regular Amazon shopper, then you should definitely invest in a Prime Account to start saving money ahead of Black Friday 2017.
