Newegg has joined the Black Friday fray. And it’s going deep into some of the nerdiest corners of holiday shopping.
Sure, there’s a wide array of discounts on Black Friday staples like TVs, smart home gear and home audio components. But Newegg wants to show off its sophisticated side this year, and is offering $10 off of a $50 Lord & Taylor gift card (starting Nov. 23).
Newegg and Lord & Taylor — the authoritative Black Friday one-stop shopping source for when you need the perfect overclockable GPU to go with that scarf.
But let’s stay on target. Newegg’s bread and butter is computer stuff: Gaming rigs, motherboards, a la carte processors, hard drives and other components. While other retailers such as, and are all offering up a handful of gaming desktops and laptops this year, none can match the breadth and depth of Newegg in those categories. And it’s also got everything from niche brand systems to thermal desktop cases and all sorts of other gaming accessories.
Newegg is online only — it has no retail locations — and a number of these deals are already live. In fact, some end in the next few days.
Many of the promotions don’t start until Nov. 20 however, while others begin on Black Friday itself, Nov. 23. We’ve included information about start and end dates, where available.
