Black Friday Trends: The Pre-Order thing is a Samsung innovation

Three days ago we spotted the unusual Black Friday Deals preorders (! [preorders of existing products; not unreleased products]) at Amazon but it turns out, this is not an Amazon “innovation” but a Samsung innovation. Similar Black Friday HDTV Deal “pre-orders” can be found at Samsung’s own website and at B&H Photo.

So far this consists of Samsung HDTVs. I don’t know if it will expand to digital cameras this year or in future years. But it is a new trend to watch as retailers are perhaps trying to zero in on shoppers who want good deals but don’t want the hassle of brick and mortar lines or deal-chasing on the internets when they can instead spend Thanksgiving weekend getting grilled by the Mother In Law 🙂

Heads up: New Experimental Twist in Black Friday sales – Preordering (!) the deals

This is only a heads up of yet another twist in the way Black Friday deals are offered. Apparently Amazon.com is trying a new experiment, you can pre-order (!) some of the Black Friday Deals. You will pay the lower price. This experiment is done with these four Samsung HDTVs. This is the first time I see this. I don’t know if other items will be offered in this fashion… So here’s a concrete example, using this 55″ Samsung HDTV as the Guinea pig: it sells for $850 if you want it right now. Or you can “pre-order” it for Black Friday for $800 and it will ship after 11/23/14.

Samsung WB350F Wifi Superzoom w/extras for $140
