In this year’s biggest Black Friday trend, retailers are busy pre-announcing day-after-Thanksgiving doorbusters that were once kept tightly under wraps.
But dealers aren’t alone in touting their Black Friday fare: Samsung has announced a staggered series of holiday promotions that it’s offering direct to consumers online, with an assist from e-commerce reseller Digital River GlobalTech.
The deals come replete with free shipping and returns, and offers of vendor financing and Samsung Protection Plus service plans in what the company calls “the Samsung online advantage.”
QLED TVs and Galaxy smartphones comprise the crux of the Nov. 23 offers, including $2,000 off a 65-inch Q7C curved 4K TV, for $2,300, and up to $400 off unlocked S8, S8 Plus and Note8 mobile devices with trade in.
But why wait? Current “Black Friday offers” range from $70 savings on select Gear S2 smart watches, to $2,500 off the 75-inch Q7F 4K Ultra HD TV, for $3,500.
Next week’s selection includes notebooks, Chromebooks, tablets, monitors, all-in-one PCs and SSDs, while post-Black Friday deals feature the Gear VR headset and 360 camera.
Samsung lays it all out on its U.S. website.
