Black Friday has become one of the year’s biggest shopping events in Canada, and it’s a fantastic time to score amazing bargains on major purchases you’ve been putting off. Many retailers save their deepest discounts of the year for Black Friday, hoping to get their holiday shopping seasons off on the right foot.

Check your flyers and online promotions to see what kind of savings area retailers are offering on these big-ticket home essentials:

Sofas and armchairs

Sofas, armchairs, and other major living room pieces typically rank among the most expensive furnishings in the average home. If you’ve been looking to upgrade yours, now is a great time to shop. Look for discounts of 25% or more at major retailers, and remember that many stores offer easy, generous financing terms on Black Friday to help boost their sales totals.

Beds and mattresses

Online mattress retailers have been eating into the profits of legacy brick-and-mortar mattress stores for several years now. If you want to try to score a great deal on a new bed, see what online bedding vendors have to offer this Black Friday. A good night’s sleep is a great investment, particularly if you can save some money on a comfortable new mattress set.

Computers, laptops, and smartphones

Black Friday’s companion event is known as Cyber Monday, and it’s when electronics prices hit rock-bottom. Unlike many other technology sales that try to push old items out the door at a discount when manufacturers’ new models get released, Cyber Monday features deep savings on top-of-the-line, state-of-the-art products from the most trusted brand names in the industry.


Have you had your eye on a shiny new high-definition smart TV for a while, but decided to wait until prices came down? Don’t wait much longer: new TV prices are rarely if ever lower than they are on Black Friday. As with living room furniture, you may also be able to get handy, cost-effective financing plans to help make things more manageable.

Video games and gaming accessories

Have you got a gaming aficionado in your household? Are you thinking about getting them a new gaming laptop, console, game release, or gaming accessory for Christmas? Now’s the time to pull the trigger! Cyber Monday also features eye-popping bargains on gaming equipment, consoles, games, and accessories. For the biggest bargains, launch your search with major online retailers. They tend to offer the deepest discounts.

Kitchen appliances

Okay, so you won’t find too many people with a new fridge, freezer, dishwasher, or microwave at the top of their holiday wish list. But these home essentials keep the world going ‘round, as the saying goes, and they go on sale on Black Friday. If you’ve been looking at upgrading your kitchen, there’s no better time of year to do it. You’ll save big money, all while enjoying your new appliances in time for the Christmas cooking and baking season.
