Haven’t finished your holiday shopping? You’re not alone. More than half of us plan on shopping on Black Friday and Cyber Monday to take advantage of the huge deals. What's looking exciting for the Black Friday?  We found four Black Friday deals you shouldn’t miss.

The Best Deals Ever on 4K OLED TVs: LG B6 4K OLED TVs

LG B6

OLED (Organic Light Emitting Diode) TVs arguably deliver the best picture quality, with deeper blacks, more vibrant colors and a wider viewing angle than LED TVs. And they’re incredibly slim, making them highly versatilefor any living space, whether sitting on a console or mounted on a wall.

Now through Cyber Monday, LG is offering the lowest price ever for a 4K OLED TV: The 55-inch B6 4K OLED TV is on sale for $1,799.99 and the 65-inch B6 model is on sale for just $2,799.99.

The B6 models feature the latest TV technologies, including both HDR (High Dynamic Range) formats – HDR10 and Dolby Vision – for the best possible picture quality. And, they feature LG’s award-winning webOS 3.0 Smart TV platform for easy access to TV streaming services like Netflix, Amazon Instant Video and Hulu, among others.

Get the deal on LG.com and through select local retailers.

Stocking Stuffer Sale: OtterBox Cases

Otterbox uniVERSE case system

Cases make the perfect stocking stuffer, both from a size and a price perspective. Plus, everyone needs one; no matter how careful you are, it’s easy to drop your phone and crack your screen. In fact, 34 percent of people have cracked their screen at least once.

Thanksgiving through Cyber Monday, OtterBox is offering up to 20 percent off all of its cases. For iPhone owners, we like the OtterBox uniVERSE case system ($49.95 before the discount) for its unique modular design.

The uniVERSE case has a slim, basic design with a slot in the back for accepting accessories. So, you can add whatever you need – and extra battery, a bike handlebar mount, a tripod mount, extra memory and much more. The uniVERSE case is currently available for iPhone 6 and 7 models and the iPhone Plus models.

OtterBox also offers a variety of rugged cases for Samsung Galaxy S phones, Google Pixel phones, Moto Z, LG G5 and more.

Get the deal on OtterBox.com and through select online and local retailers.

Topping Wishlists: Sony PlayStation 4

PlayStation 4 Uncharted Bundle

According to the Consumer Technology Association, video game consoles are in the top 5 of the most wished for tech items this holiday season. 

Sony is offering a new model of its PlayStation 4 from Black Friday through Cyber Monday at a new low price of just $249 (that’s $50 off the usual price). The new model is slimmer, lighter and more energy efficient than earlier models. And, it’s compatible with PlayStation VR ($399.99), an immersive, 360-degree gaming experience. PlayStation VR, which launched this fall, has a lineup of 30 games, including Rez Infinite, Batman: Arkham VR, DRIVECLUB VR and RIGS Mechanized Combat League.  In total, PS VR will have a library of approximately 50 games by the end of the year. 

Uncharted 4: A Thief's End

The new PS4 will be bundled with Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, the latest installment in the award-winning Uncharted series. Sony is promising new gameplay mechanics, larger, more open environments and enhanced graphics and animations for a more cinematic experience.

And, like with all PS4 models, you’ll be able to do a lot more than play games. You can listen to music streaming service, like Spotify, and watch streaming TV services, including Netflix, PlayStation Vue, NFL Sunday Ticket and NBA Game Time, among others.
