Thinking about standing in a long line to get deals on Black Friday? Maybe it's best to skip the electronics. According to the website Wallethub.com, those items will be discounted on average about 25% in 2018...good for the 10th best category for discounts.
Instead, it says, go for jewelry, which by far has the deepest discount - on average 73% cheaper this Friday than normal prices.
To put that in perspective, the #2 category (books, movies, and music) is discounted on average about 48% from normal retail prices.
Here's the rest of the list:
3. Consumer packaged goods . . . 46% off. Meaning stuff we buy and replace all the time. So, that would be things like paper towels and bottled water.
4. Video games . . . 39%.
5. Furniture . . . 37%.
6. Toys . . . 37%.
7. Clothes and accessories . . . 33%.
8. Appliances . . . 30%.
9. Consumer electronics, like TVs and speakers . . . 26%.
10. Computers and phones . . . 25%.
So, if you're going to stand in a long line on Black Friday, maybe you should be looking for a diamond necklace instead of a new iPhone
