Dell is perhaps best known for being one of the largest computer and technology companies in the world. If you’ve ever worked with computers before, the odds are good that you’ve used one of their computers, monitors, keyboards, or mice before. But did you know that Dell also does a lot of business through their website? On Dell.com, you’re able to buy all kinds of tech, from monitors to laptops to televisions to printers. There are fairly regular sales on Dell.com, and Black Friday is the biggest day for sales out of the year.
Recently, Dell’s Black Friday deals leaked. This means that we have the chance to preview their deals and “doorbusters” (can you really call it a doorbuster if it’s online-only) a few weeks before the sale actually begins. In this article, I’ll go over some of the discounts that Dell will be offering through Dell.com for Black Friday this year. If you would like to view the full leaked ad scan, simply scroll to the bottom of this article and click the image of the flyer in order to download the complete list of deals.

As you can see, Dell has a few really interesting deals up for grabs this holiday season. Although a technology manufacturer holding their own online-only Black Friday sale is sort of unorthodox, I think that the discounts here will make it well worth your time. (Even if it means you have to sit at your computer for a couple of hours.) I wasn’t able to cover all of the deals that they’ve having here, so if you want to take a look at Dell’s full Black Friday flyer, you can download it by scrolling to the bottom of this article and clicking the Dell Black Friday image.
Dell Black Friday Hours & FAQs:
When does Dell open for Black Friday?
Since Dell’s Black Friday sales will be conducted solely through their website, there really isn’t a time for any actual doors to be unlocked, so to speak. However, sales will be held online on Thanksgiving from 6pm to midnight, and on Black Friday from 8 am to 8pm. All of these times are Eastern Standard Time.
2016 Dell Black Friday Hours:
As I mentioned before, it’s tricky for an online sale to have “hours”. However, for all intents and purposes, I think that you can say that Dell is open from 6pm to midnight EST on Thanksgiving and from 8 am to 8 pm EST on Black Friday.
Can you shop online or is it in-store only?
The sale is actually online-only. If you want to take advantage of these specials, you need to place your purchases through Dell.com.
What is the Dell return policy?
If you purchase an item through Dell, you’re able to return it without any hassle within 30 days of the original purchase. However, there are a few little exceptions. For example, software is not eligible for return of any kind. Non-Dell branded mobile phones may be subject to return periods that are shorter than 30 days. I recommend that you check out Dell’s website to read the entirety of their return policy, just so that you can avoid any unpleasant surprises.
