SAN DIEGO, CA, Nov. 8, 2018 /PRNewswire/ - Over 180 million shoppers are expected to take advantage of Black Friday deals this holiday season. Once a one-day sale, Black Friday has turned into a multi-week event with the goal of fulfilling holiday wish lists. Smartphones top wish lists this year according to a survey conducted by Gazelle, the leading online marketplace for consumers to buy and sell previously owned electronic devices.

Forty-four percent of Americans who are looking to purchase new electronic devices over the holidays would like smartphones, with 23 percent eyeing a new Samsung Galaxy and 21 percent desiring a new iPhone. Rounding out the top five most wished-for items are the Apple Watch (17 percent), iPad (16 percent) and MacBook (14 percent).

While 30 percent of consumers are hoping for electronic devices as gifts, only 12 percent are holding out for smartphone deals and 16 percent for tablet bargains. Retailers will need to truly surprise and delight shoppers this year to earn their smartphone, tablet and computer sales.
