SLIDESHOW: What to Look for When Buying Electronics on Black Friday

Unfamiliar brands

Research unfamiliar brands There are a lot of unfamiliar brands on sale during Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Keep in mind that brands like e-Machine, Gateway, and Compaq are owned by bigger brands that you may know, like Hewlett Packard and Acer. Don’t be afraid to buy an unfamiliar brand if you’ve done your research, Bradford advices. For example, Acer owns Gateway. Even though Gateway is a different brand, Acer just takes a lot of their own notebooks and puts the Gateway name on it, but it is basically the same thing. Just make sure you know who owns the unfamiliar brand, and check reviews to see what people are saying about the company, says Bradford.
