Everybody loves a great deal. And there is no better time to get a great deal than Black Friday.
Barron's sifted through all the sales circulars to find the best personal- technology products at the lowest prices for Black Friday, Nov. 23.
Smart speakers are one of the hottest, most useful gadgets on the market. Both Target (TGT) and Walmart (WMT) will have the recently released Google Home Hub for just $99. The device comes with a touch screen 7-inch display, which is perfect for showing recipes in the kitchen or watching YouTube videos. For those worried about privacy, it doesn't include a camera.
For those that prefer the Amazon Alexa voice assistant, Target will sell the Amazon Echo Dot (third generation) for $24.
The Roku Ultra lets you stream in 4K and also has a neat feature, where you can plug in your headphones into the remote for private listening. Target will sell it for half off on Black Friday.
The flagship Google Pixel 3 just came out last month, but that doesn't mean it won't be on discounted for Black Friday. Best Buy (BBY) will sell the Pixel 3, which many say has the best camera of any smartphone, for $200 off with a Verizon line activation.
The best deal for Apple (AAPL) iPhone fans is at Walmart. Buyers can get a free $300 Walmart gift card if they buy an iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max or iPhone XR with a wireless plan from AT&T (T), Sprint (S) or Verizon Communications (VZ).
For those that need better Wi-Fi coverage inside their house to play the latest online games, access the Internet and stream video, the well-reviewed Netgear (NTGR) Nighhawk AC2600 is a great deal for half off at Walmart.
