The Best Things to Buy on Black Friday

Black Friday is a day of deals, but that doesn’t mean every deal is equal to one another. Sometimes flashy prices can’t hide that some items simply aren’t worth wasting your energy on, no matter how reduced the price has become. It’s not always easy to understand what the best things to buy on Black Friday are.

However, at Catch, we know what makes a product worth buying. So instead of talking about what you shouldn’t buy (we’ll get to that later), let’s talk about items you should definitely consider purchasing. So let’s get started as we explore the best things to buy on Black Friday 2022 and beyond.

Smart Home Gadgets

Are you tired of hearing all about your friends having fancy smart home gadgets? Do you want an Amazon Echo speaker or Google Nest but can’t justify the purchase at its current price? Then, black Friday is the best day for tech specials! You can finally bring your house into the 21st century with these fantastic devices, thanks to specials that sometimes knock 40% off the original prices.

Other great deals include a buy one get one free deal on things like smart plugs, smart bulbs, and in rare cases, additional smart speakers. It makes sense for major companies like Amazon and Google to drop their prices during Black Friday as they’re both competing for users in their smart home systems. All you need to do is choose wisely.

Small Appliances

We’ve all found ourselves in situations where we want to upgrade our current appliances but can’t justify spending money to replace perfectly working appliances. Well, Black Friday is the perfect time to switch out some appliances by taking advantage of the incredible deals coming your way this Black Friday. You’ll find just about everything is on sale when it comes to small appliances. If you’re looking for a new pressure cooker, air fryer, blenders, toasters, kettles, etc. You’re in luck because these things are always heavily reduced on Black Friday.

Computers, Laptops, & Tablets

As we mentioned earlier, tech is where the real specials are on Black Friday. So if your laptop hasn’t been performing like it used to and you need a new one, Black Friday is the time to replace it! The same can be said about computers overall or getting a new tablet. Apple products enjoy great specials from non-Apple stores, as well as brands like Lenovo, HP, Samsung, and Dell.

You can even be smart in your approach to these kinds of specials. While laptops with poor specs might be extremely cheap, you can use the money saved to throw in some upgrades and make it even better. So it’s still cheaper in the long run.

Headphones, Airpods & Other Wireless Earbuds

Headphones, Airpods and similar products from other brands have been stars of Black Friday sales going back to 2020. So if you’ve been wanting Airpods or similar products, then Black Friday is the perfect opportunity to get some of your own. You can even get great deals on Bluetooth speakers, sound bars, and more audio equipment. So if you want new ones or need to replace old or lost ones, wait a few months for Black Friday to roll around to take full advantage of deals of up to 40% off!

Smartwatches & Fitness Trackers

Never has there been a better time for you to join millions of others in getting a smartwatch. Perhaps you already have one. Well, Black Friday is a great opportunity for an early upgrade. Smartwatches and fitness trackers are really handy devices. Still, they’re sometimes a little more expensive than we’re willing to spend on something like this. Black Friday is when these brands take a chainsaw to their pricing by reducing prices by 25 - 40%! If you haven’t gotten a smartwatch of your own, Black Friday is when you can change that.

Large Appliances

Have you had your heart set on a new fridge, washing machine, dishwasher, tumble dryer, or some other large appliance for a while? Black Friday is when products like these are heavily reduced. Sure, they’re not the 100% best deals out there, but that doesn’t mean they’re not great deals. Large appliances can see great price reductions, and any reduction on an item of this size and importance is monumental. It can finally be time to replace that outdated fridge or broken washing machine with a newer, more efficient model. This is a worthy investment, and a special price makes it even better.

Home Goods

We’ve already spoken about appliances, but that’s not the only thing that we think is a good purchase on Black Friday for your home. We’re talking about home goods like towels, sheets, and general linen. So, don't be afraid to stock up on some nice new fresh towels for your home. Even if you don’t 100% need them, the specials make it, so it’s a great purchase regardless of necessity. It’s also not an item that will break the bank by any means.

Not all home goods experience amazing specials. Still, you might find some hidden gem specials lying around. So, prepare for what might be the reality of specials across the department.


Fragrances can be rather expensive, but if you wait it out until Black Friday, you might find some of your favourite perfumes, colognes, and other fragrances at heavily discounted prices. It’s worth mentioning that perfumes don’t always experience massive price reductions. Still, sometimes you might be surprised what online retailers do during Black Friday sales. Department stores will have the least amount of discounts on fragrances, so relegate this to online only.


Now that you know what products you should be buying, it’s time to start making a wishlist and preparing for Black Friday 2022! So head on over to Catch marketplace and set up that account, and browse our expansive selection of products. You’re gonna want to start organising a few wishlists and doing some research so that when Black Friday rolls around, you’re 100% ready.
