Don’t want to wait for Black Friday?
Check some of the deals on Amazon today and get a hoverboard cheap. Amazon stocks all the most popular brands that are UL certified.
As you can see most of these self balancing scooters now have bluetooth as standard. For younger kids you definitely want to look at a model with 6″ wheels, but for older kids and adults check out some of the larger products with 8.5″ wheels.
How much does a hoverboard cost?
All the popular brands will be getting in on the act this Black Friday, including Swagtron, Gotrax, Razor, Megawheels, HaloBoard, Jetson and more. The price of hoverboards has actually dropped significantly in the last few years (they were expensive when they first hit the market, but these days you can expect to pay approximately $150-$200 for a basic model (with 6″ wheels) and $200-$500 for an off road hoverboard. Black Friday hoverboard deals (many which go on until Cyber Monday and the week beyond) mean you can save even more on these prices.
Whether you’re looking for a scooter to go off roading, or a cheap hoverboard with bluetooth and LED lights, there’s something for everyone. And they’re not just for the kids – many have a weight capacity of up to 260lbs, and the Swagtron T6 has a max weight of up to 420lbs. So the whole family can enjoy a ride!
Where to get a Black Friday Hoverboard deal?
Top retailers such as Amazon, Walmart, Best Buy, Target and Kohl’s all sell UL 2272 certified hoverboards during the Black Friday and Cyber Monday period. What’s the cheapest hoverboard you can get? Last year Walmart had one in their sale for just $99, so we expect to find similar deals again this year. Nearly all your favorite brands will probably be offering at least some price reduction or discount, so if you’ve had your eye on one make sure you check to see if it’s on sale! You can often save a significant amount, especially on some of the more expensive brands. For instance last year Haloboard was offering $50 off their popular Halo Rover off road hoverboard!
What are Black Friday and Cyber Monday?
Black Friday is the shopping day after Thanksgiving and is the official start to the Christmas shopping season. Retailers offer deep discounts on many different items, particularly on expensive electronics. The name was originally coined by police in the 1960’s to describe the mayhem in city centres on this day with store overcrowding and traffic jams. In recent years store sales have even led to violence and fighting in shopping malls as customers tried to grab the best deals on consumer electronics. Cyber Monday is the Monday following Thanksgiving, and is another busy shopping day with great bargains. It was created by retailers to encourage shopping online from home, although most people now do most of their shopping online anyway!
We prefer to avoid the craziness of store shopping and trying to find city parking in favor of online shopping from the comfort of home – Walmart and Amazon in particular are great for hoverboard and other deals!
