Micro Center Black Friday deals 2018: early deals and what to expect this year


Black Friday means being able to go holiday shopping while stretching every last dollar in your bank account. It means showing someone you appreciate them by filling their stocking with RAM or a new gaming mouse. Fortunately, Micro Center understands how to help us do just that—if you live near one of their 25 stores in the US, that is. If you’re one of the lucky ones, then you can take full advantage of their ridiculous in-store Black Friday deals starting now. They discount nearly everything, from laptops and tablets, to hardware and monitors—it’s paradise.

If you are on Micro Center's mailing list, then you've probably already seen some of these deals in your inbox, but the current, entire catalog is live on Micro Center's website. Everything is subject to availability at your local store, so if you want to beat the day-of Black Friday rush, now is the time to go. Some of these deals might run out soon. There doesn't seem to be much in the way of GPU deals at the moment, but there's still some time left until Black Friday.

Here are a few early deal highlights.
