    ROKU BLACK FRIDAY DEAL

    Americans can get their hands on a Roku LE streaming player for just $15 in a Black Friday exclusive deal at Walmart.

    The device usually costs around $30 and the offer is available for a few days.

    Movie lovers will be able to stream their favorite Netflix and Disney+ shows and they don’t even need a smart TV to do so.

    Americans will also receive $5 worth of credit that can be used for Redbox and a free month of HBO Max, which usually costs $10.

    The streaming device can be picked up at Walmart stores from 5am and can be shipped to homes across the country.

    A free 30-day return window starts on December 26.

    The package will also include an HDMI cable to help you set up the streaming device.

    Walmart has an array of Black Friday deals on luxury goods including TVs, headphones, and vacuums.

      WHEN WILL BLACK FRIDAY SALES START?

      Black Friday is not just a one-day event anymore, as plenty of retailers slash prices for a longer period to encourage more shoppers to spend during the busy holiday season.

      Deals typically start the week before, but shoppers may want to wait until the actual weekend as deals tend to improve nearer the official day.

      Most sales are now available online – as opposed to just in stores – meaning prices are lower for longer.

      HOW TO GET THE BEST BLACK FRIDAY DEALS?

      Just because something is part of a sale for Black Friday doesn't mean it's always a good deal.

      There are plenty of comparison websites out there that'll check prices for you, so make sure you don't pay more than you have to.

      Most of them work by comparing the prices across hundreds of retailers.

      Here are just a few that you can use:

      • Google Shopping is a tool that lets users search for and compare prices for products across the web. Simply type in keywords, or a product number, to bring up search results.
      • CamelCamelCamel only works on goods being sold on Amazon. To use it, type in the URL of the product you want to check the price of.
      • Honey is a price comparison tool that lets you compare prices through your browser. It can also find coupons and codes for saving money on items you're looking at.

      WHAT IS BLACK FRIDAY?

      Black Friday is considered the start of the holiday and Christmas shopping season.

      Many Americans have Thanksgiving Day and the next day off, so usually, people celebrating this holiday will have four days free to shop.

      The day was given its name as it's often the day that shops "move into the black", meaning they have enough money to cover their costs.

      The term Black Friday is said to have been coined in the US in the 1960s.

            WHEN WILL BANKS REOPEN AFTER THANKSGIVING?

            Although banks will be closed on Thanksgiving Day, they will open back up on Black Friday.

            Financial institutions resuming their opening and closing times on Black Friday means that consumers have a chance to get their affairs in order so they don't miss out on some great deals.

            Hours of operation are likely to vary from bank to bank, make sure to inquire with your local financial institution concerning Black Friday opening and closing times.

            Thanksgiving Day falls on November 25, Black Friday falls on November 26

            IS BLACK FRIDAY A FEDERAL HOLIDAY?

            For the Thanksgiving holiday, all financial institutions will be closed across the US.

            With Black Friday the very next day, many people are wondering if they will be able to frequent their usual bank and initiate their accustomed transactions.

            Customers and bankers are inquiring to know about their local banking times due to wanting to get their accounts in order to take advantage of Black Friday sales.

            Some businesses and institutions are choosing to remain closed on Thanksgiving, Black Friday, and even until the weekend.

          • Cheyenne R. Ubiera

            ARE BANKS CLOSED ON BLACK FRIDAY?

            Nationwide, banks operate at their normal hours between 9am until at least 5pm or 6pm.

            WHAT ARE THE BEST TV BRANDS IN 2021?

            There are three brands that dominate the TV market, though there are plenty of other manufacturers who create high-quality sets.

            The biggest TV-maker out there is Samsung, who has dazzled consumers this year with its new line of Neo-QLED sets (and its QLED sets become way more affordable too).

            Then there’s LG, whose webOS smart platform has a stellar reputation for its ease of use, and do some superb OLED sets.

            Lastly, there’s Sony, famed for its Bravia line of televisions.

            If you go with any of these brands, we can assure you that you’re in safe hands – but Panasonic, Hisense, JVC and Philips are all worth attention too.

            There’s also the all-new Sky Glass, Sky’s first ever television. It seems likely we’ll see price drops on some of the bundle packages that it offers.
