Best Amazon Black Friday Deals From 2013

From books to electronics to kitchen supplies, online retailer Amazon sells almost any product you might need. Last year, the Internet giant offered a full eight days of great deals in honor of everyone’s favorite post-Thanksgiving shopping holidays. The bargains started early, rolling out on the Sunday before Black Friday, with new deals released every 10 minutes through Cyber Monday.

As usual for Black Friday, some of the best deals were on electronics. TVs were a great find, with prices similar to and often lower than those at Walmart and Target. Bargain hunters could find some excellent prices on Vizio, Seiki and Samsung HDTVs in a range of sizes:

  • Vizio 60-inch 1080p 120Hz HDTV: $688
  • Vizio E550i-A0 55-inch 1080p 120Hz Smart HDTV: $479.99
  • Seiki 32-inch 720p 60Hz LED HDTV: $98 (originally $289.99)
  • Seiki 50-inch 1080p 60Hz LED HDTV: $229
  • Samsung 65-inch 1080p 120Hz LED HDTV: $999 (originally $2,649)
  • Samsung 55-inch 1080p 240Hz 3D Ultra Slim Smart LED HDTV: $1,297.99

When it came to other electronics, Amazon delivered, with low prices on digital cameras, smartphones and other electronic devices:

  • Canon T3 digital SLR camera: less than $400 (originally $429)
  • Nikon D3200 digital SLR camera and 2-lens kit: less than $500 (originally $879.99)
  • HTC One with a 2-year contract (Sprint, Verizon, AT&T): $0.01
  • Sony BDP-S3100 Blu-ray disc player with Wi-Fi: $54.99 (originally $119.99)
  • Jawbone Jambox Bluetooth speaker: $99.99 (originally $149.99)

Compare Amazon’s price on the HTC One to Best Buy‘s $29.99. When you consider the phone’s list price of $199.99, both deals offered significant savings, but, at only a penny, Amazon’s offer blew Best Buy’s right out of the water. It’s hard to beat a price of almost nothing. Sony’s Wi-Fi-enabled BDP-S3100 Blu-ray was another star of the sale, selling for less than $60.

More deals could be found in the video game department, perfect for shoppers looking for holiday gifts. The list included consoles, games and more:
