Where to Buy Black Friday DVDs

All Black Friday sales are good, but some of the best are the ones that can help you cross almost everyone off your holiday shopping list. Like Black Friday DVD sales. Whether your gift recipients are lucky enough for a DVD player, a Blu Ray Player, or some excellent but cheap DVDs, there’s something for everyone to get excited over.

DVD players make great doorcrasher deals, so even though it may be hard to give up your post-turkey naptime, if you can get to Walmart, Best Buy or Target for their doorcrashers, do so. Last Black Friday, DVD player prices dipped below $20 for basic models while versions with a few more bells and whistles were up to 70% off. Portable DVD players also had their prices slashed, with Target offering RCA models below $60. We can expect those prices to go even lower, think below $50 this year.

As nice as a new DVD player can be, it’s hard to deny that a Blu Ray player is the hotter option at the moment. With options like 3D capability and Wi-Fi built into many models and what’s believed to be higher definition video and audio than DVD, Blu Ray player sales have spent the last few years doubling from year to year while Blu Ray discs have become industry standard for high-density optical discs, making a Blu Ray player a good investment for years to come.

In 2012 the best Black Friday Blu Ray deals came from Walmart, Kmart and, surprisingly, Costco. We expect much the same from Black Friday 2013.

Another thing we expect from Black Friday 2013 is that in addition to the wide availability of cheap DVDs, we’ll also be seeing big sales on Blu Ray discs. Be sure to stock up on the biggest movies of 2013, like Django Unchained, Monsters University, Despicable Me 2, and Identity Thief. Your worthwhile Blu Ray investments will be anything with an emphasis on visuals and graphics, like Oz the Great and Powerful, Star Trek: Into Darkness, Iron Man 3, Man of Steel, and Epic.

In all this talk about DVD and Blu Ray movies, we’d be remiss to forget about the TV show offerings. Box sets and TV show seasons of iconic shows like Breaking Bad, The Office and Arrested Development always make great gifts for others or yourself. And with Black Friday deals involved it’s an all-win situation.
