It’s that time of year again in the US. A time we get together with family or friends and enjoy good food. Well it’s also the time of year those crazy people you see on the news, stand in line to get things they probably don’t need at below average sale prices. Occasionally going to these Black Friday events there are a few things I have learned. If you want one of those door-buster deals, plan on spending most of your Thanksgiving camped out in line. If you aren’t familiar with what a door buster deal is, it’s a term given to those deals such as picking up a 50″ LED Flat Panel for 299.00 or something ridiculous like that, but usually for a small time window and with very limited quantity. The key however I have found is to find things you like and want to buy, but may not be in a high demand. For me, it’s a good time to pick up games and accessories at highly marked down prices. So here is what you should note. ( All Ads are fullsize when clicked)
If you’re looking at picking up a current gen console such as the PS3 or 360, now is a good time with the following bundles below.
At your Local Best Buy the following PS3/360 Bundles will be available for $199.00
If you already have a console and are looking for games in particular here is what I have found to be the best deals so far and the retailer they will be at.

Now for those that aren’t into standing in lines or going out early to catch these deals, I completely understand that sentiment. Good thing there are some amazing online sales planned. Target and Wal-Mart Stores are offering some of the same discounts online as in stores. So is Best Buy, which says the deals will help hold onto customers who might otherwise stray to a rival website, such as Amazon, which will be running their own specials all week long.
For those havent been before, you no longer have to stand in lines all night for a 6am opening; there’s lots of options when it comes to hitting the stores: primetime, midnight, the wee hours or morning. Walmart is rolling back its first Black Friday sale another two hours this year to 8 p.m. Thursday – along with national retailer Toys R Us. Target isn’t far behind with a 9 p.m. opening, which is three hours earlier than last year. Most mall stores – along with retail leaders Macy’s, Kohl’s and Best Buy – will let people in at midnight. Walmart is breaking up its Black Friday deals into three waves of sales: 8 p.m. and 10 p.m. electronics sale and 5 a.m. sale on Friday.
I will be updating this post along with occasionally posting some things on our Facebook page as I see them happen all next week! If I missed anything Please leave a comment and link below!
