As Black Friday & Cyber Monday is less than 2 weeks away and the holiday season slowly creeps up on us, we all started to look for special gifts. This year Black Friday is on 23rd of November, however, retailers like Banggood, GeekBuying and GearBes are already dropping their prices in preparation for the big day. If you do not know, Cyber Monday, is the first Monday after Black Friday and the whole weekend is the best time of the year for deals.
Unfortunately, not all deals are good deals though. You should avoid deals that offer incredibly high price drops. You know, it is pretty unbelievable that some unknown retailer can offer a $1000 DJI Mavic for only $50. I saw many ads where they are using images and specs of the Mavic for selling a E58 (in best case), for example. Of course, some reputable stores can offer similar deals, but for a very limited quantity, which will cause many people to arrive early to that store in trying to be one of the lucky few to get one.
Best Black Friday & Cyber Monday drone deals
If a new drone is on your wish list, you’re in luck, because Black Friday offers some of the best deals of the year. Personally, I wish to catch a Hubsan Zino. It seems to be the best drone with 4K under $500.
