Black Friday 2012: Mobile accessory deals
Stock up on mobile accessories during Black Friday. Here's what to look for, and where to get it
So, pretty much everyone is planning to buy some kind of smartphone or tablet this holiday season (especially since wireless providers are already offering deals ahead of Black Friday). And it never hurts to have extra accessories for all that gear. Here are some shops expected to offer steep discounts on everything from smartphone cases and Bluetooth headsets to chargers and docking stations.
Best Buy will discount all types of mobile accessories for iOS and Android devices as part of its Black Friday sale. And if you missed the door busters, you can still snag some deals at the retailer's online store during Cyber Monday; just be sure to log on early, as everything will be in limited supply. Check out Best Buy's Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales on mobile accessories here.
As part of its countdown to Black Friday 2012, Amazon has already started listing several holiday deals. Typically, supply is limited and these switch out pretty quickly for new items, so be sure to check regularly. Some sales will even pop up before they become available, so you can add your name to a wait list. You can find the online retailer's latest Black Friday discounts here.
So far we've learned via popular deal Web site Dealnews that Walmart will offer at least two Bluetooth headsets at steep discounts, including Plantronics Voyager PRO+ in black and Plantronics M50. The first, which regularly retails for around $80, will be marked down to $39; the M50 usually sells for about $32 and will be cut to $12. According to the site, these prices are only good at Walmart's brick-and-mortar shops, and only on Thanksgiving and Black Friday.
Old iPhone accessories
Apple's new iPhone 5 has a brand new Lightning dock connector, which means all of those accessories still sporting the outdated 30-pin ports are about to become seriously cheap. And as a bonus, you can still use the old gear with the iPhone 5 if you pick up one of Apple's 30-pin-to-Lightning adapters. Check all of the aforementioned retailers for sweet deals on old iPhone accessories.
