If you’re planning on buying gadgets this Black Friday and you want to find the biggest discounts, then your best bet may be to try Walmart, Newegg and Best Buy first. Mobile shopping app ShopSavvy, which lets its users track major sales at different retailers across multiple brands, has just given us some data about which retailers are offering the biggest average discounts on gadgets this Black Friday.

Of course, these are just averages across multiple different types of electronics and it doesn’t mean these stores will necessarily discount the gadget you want by that particular amount. Nonetheless, this data does give us a good idea of exactly which big box stores are really taking a hatchet to electronics prices this holiday shopping season and it could help you decide where to start your search to find the best deals.

For what it’s worth, Walmart doesn’t just offer the cheapest average discount, it offers the most overall discounts, as ShopSavvy says it’s found more than 4,000 electronics discounts at Walmart alone. And given that Walmart is absolutely determined to match Amazon’s prices on Black Friday sales in all its stores, you could find some even bigger discounts than the ones the company has been advertising.
