Is Black Friday the right time to buy an iPhone 6 or 6 Plus?

There are going to be some fantastic deals on iPhone 6 and 6 Plus devices this Black Friday. By now, all of the fliers are out, and the ads are streaming in newspapers and across the internet. The question though stands and has stood for a while with regards to various tech devices and other deals on Black Friday.

At the end of the day is it worth going out on Black Friday and buying a new iPhone 6 or 6 Plus?

There’s a host of price tags that will be associated with the newest iPhone’s this Black Friday. Ranging from $99 on contract to $30-100 off the normal retail price, depending on where you’re shopping, and how you’re shopping. Some stores are running deals that will only exist for certain hours, some stores are actually closing part of the time, and others are just running flat promotions around the entire event that is Black Friday.


Ultimately, it comes down to determining how badly you want a device as an individual. Do you badly need a phone? Are you due for an upgrade and are looking for the lowest price? Are the potential savings, if you’re going to save $20, $30, or even $100 crucial to your budget and your ability to obtaining the device?

At the end of the day, if you’re someone who wants a good deal on a device and doesn’t mind either fighting a crowd, waiting in a line, or sitting online waiting for a deal to begin on the internet if that’s the approach you’re taking – Black Friday could be a great time to get a device.

However, by and large, at the end of the day buying an iPhone 6 or 6 Plus will not be worth fighting the crowds and going through the process that is Black Friday. Most stores are offering their best deals on Thanksgiving Night, and that alone has many people up in arms, thus relegating Black Friday itself to a traditional shopping day.

If though, you want an iPhone for as little as $99 and feel like that is a deal worth shortening your holiday – if it is one for you – and challenging the demand and stock quantity issues that are undoubtedly going to rise – as demand for the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus are as high as any iPhone ever has been – then perhaps the deal is for you.

If not, then perhaps it is a good day to take advantage of more conventional deals than the large, big ticket items, and pay the full-blown $199 on a traditional shopping day. When people ask the question, “Should I go buy this on Black Friday,” people often forget that at the end of the day it’s about doing what’s in your best interest, and what you can most easily afford.
