â€œIt looks like a lot of the e-readers advertised on Black Friday sales are pretty good deals,â€ says Bradford. It is rumored that the Barnes and Noble Nook, which is usually $150 will be $99 just for Black Friday at Best Buy. â€œThe only caveat is that it has WiFi and not 3G,â€ says Bradford. 3G is better because you can get an internet connection anywhere there is a cell phone signal, regardless of whether or not there is a WiFi signal. Also, the Nook gets free access to 3G and WiFi on AT&Tâ€™s network.
â€œIf WiFi is fine with you then that is a really good deal, says Bradford. â€œMost people arenâ€™t going to need to download a book while standing out on a street corner.â€ But if downloading a book on the fly is your thing then you might want to spend more for 3G.
Leading up to Black Friday stay informed about new models that are soon to be released. A lot of brands will be releasing newer models towards the end of this year and the beginning of the next year. If having the latest product is important to you, donâ€™t buy an older version just because it is on sale.
