Your One-Stop Shop for Electronics on Black Friday
For several years running, office supply giant, Office Max, "hangs their hat" on offering us thrifty shoppers the best electronic deals. In the last few years in particular, laptops, tablets, printers, cell phones and other accessories have graced the company's Black Friday advertisements as the leading "doorbuster" deals.
So one might ask, of all the leading retailers offering great electronic deals on Black Friday, why stand in line at Office Max? Here are just a few examples that might help inform your decision:
- On-trend products and brand variety: For starters, consumers can expect, as it has been in the past, on-trend products rising in popularity and creating buzz, as well as a fair range of generic to higher-end leading electronic brands to choose from. Options and deals? Hard to pass up that combination!
- Pricing: On Black Friday, Office Max fares very price-reasonable when it comes to electronics, especially laptops. Take 2013 for example. A Lenovo laptop was available at Office Max, as well as a few other key retailers - Office Max offered the lowest price (under $200) whereas other retailers upped the price by a hundred dollars, even reaching $499 at one store.
- Specialized: 40 years specialized industry experience gives Office Max street credentials other retailers don't have. Shoppers can rely on Office Max for its well-versed associates and technology expertise, a company you'd prefer to buy a more expensive product from, as well as warranty, should anything happen.
From past to present, Office Max also has offered a nice variety of added incentives during its Black Friday specials. Rebates, additional coupons (15 percent to 30 percent off) and this year, iTunes gift card, Visa and other popular clothing retailer offers such as Old Navy to go along with your electronic purchases. And, "buy one get ones" such as purchase ink and/or toner and get another free. From a product standpoint, too, more great deals on your favorite laptops, tablets and other accessories for home or the office.
If you’re a business owner, you’re especially in luck. Office Max recognizes business owners with its Office Max Workplace incentive program in the healthcare, government, education and small business segments. Become an owner and your membership perks begin. Free shipping on certain products, as well as customized incentives such as percentages off office furniture and supplies are part of the package. Plus, an added bonus – they have a dedicated IT team/staff available to act as an extension of your company’s IT team. Should you need planning, acquiring or funding (to name a few steps in the IT cycle), an Office Max IT team member is just a phone call away, helping to maximize effectiveness and ultimately reduce costs for your organization.
