Black Friday's Newegg deals event is the best time to get save some serious dosh on the hardware you've been dreaming of, especially if you're a PC builder. Whether it's a plush new i9-9900K, a fresh gaming laptop, or just a new LED mousepad (no judgements here, no siree!) Newegg's sales have a little bit of something for everyone. It's one of our go-to places for rig building.
Though it doesn't always come close to Amazon's Black Friday sales in terms of range and price, Newegg makes it simple to find the correct components for your build. What's more, orders can be tax free in some states. There are often rebates, and games bundled with hardware too. When it comes to finding the best deals, though, that often depends on exactly what your shopping for: Newegg specializes largely in hardware, however, so it's a great retailer to watch if you want anything from a new graphics card to a new 144Hz monitor. Anyone searching for pre-builds and laptops are usually well catered for too, but for those seeking TVs and actual games, you should really look elswhere.
Around Black Friday, Newegg's deals are among the best in town, so you should keep this feature bookmarked as we refresh it with the latest deals before the special day in November arrives. For now, here's what you can expect from Newegg and, if you need it, a more general feature on 2019's best Black Friday deals.
Black Friday Newegg deals—when do they start?
Black Friday itself doesn't start until November 29, but the Black Friday Newegg deals sometimes start a week earlier—with offers at other retailers sometimes starting up to two weeks or more. If there's something you're particularly interested in buying through Newegg, it's worth bookmarking this page and checking it as early as November 15 and popping back every few days just to make sure you're not missing any deals. Likewise, Black Friday Newegg deals will probably last until Christmas. That's because Black Friday is happening so late this year, and Cyber Monday doesn't start until December 2.
In terms of buying advice, remember that Newegg's Price Match Guarantee only affects certain items (you'll see the badge clearly displayed on the item's page) and doesn't apply to Black Friday deals from other retailers. Keep that in mind because if you happen to buy something and then see a better deal elsewhere, Newegg probably won't match that price and refund you.
How to save money with Black Friday Newegg deals
Black Friday can be overwhelming. With so much on sale from so many retailers at different price points, it can be frustrating knowing whether you're actually getting the best deal or not. Here are some tips to help you sift through the noise.
1. Know what you need in advance
Retailers like Newegg want to hook you with all sorts of crazy deals on hardware and gadgets you might not actually need to buy. So before Black Friday comes, it helps to make a shopping list of what you actually need and set a budget for how much you're willing to spend to get it. Unless a crazy good deal pops up on something you absolutely need, understand that it's okay to ignore a good sale even if the price is heavily discounted.
2. Always keep price comparison sites bookmarked and nearby
Though Newegg often has very competitive deals, you owe it to yourself to make sure it's the best deal. So before you hit the purchase button, make sure to check websites like CamelCamelCamel which will show you competitive deals from Amazon specifically. Hover Hound is an extension for Google Chrome (also available for Firefox) specifically made for Newegg that shows you price comparisons and price history, which is invaluable for figuring out what is and isn't a deal.
3. Keep an eye our for those always-enticing extras
Depending on what you're looking for, hardware often comes bundled with some nice extras to sweeten the deal. This is especially true for graphics cards, which often come bundled with new games, but can also apply to CPU and motherboard combos and more. So before you buy something, it's worth to check around and see if you can get that same deal but with a nice freebie too.
