Lots of people get lined up a few hours before the stores open on Black Friday. This couple started their vigil a bit earlier than that...
We'll start off our virtual shopping excursion at Best Buy, which has a number of intriguing deals this Friday.
Barnes & Noble Nook for $99 ($50 off) Flip video camera for $99 ($50 off) PS3 plus 2 games and a Blu-ray movie for $299 ($100 off) Xbox 360 with Lego Star Wars, Lego Batman and Lego Indiana Jones for $200 ($60 off) Many Blu-ray titles at $7.99 and DVDs at $3.99 $125 gift card to Best Buy when you buy a MacBook Pro or iMac
TJ Maxx is offering a 16GB Wi-Fi iPad for $399, $100 off regular price. But better check by phone first, because not all stores seem to have this deal.
Walmart has a number of electronics deals, and though they open their doors at midnight, electronics don't go on sale until 5 AM.
500GB Western Digital Passport drive for $39 Belkin Surf Wireless N Router for $29 1.5TB Seagate FreeAgent drive for $70 Sony Reader eBook Pocket Edition for $99
GameStop has the same $200 price on the Xbox 360 as Best Buy, but with either Madden 11 or Medal of Honor, rather than the Lego games.
What you wear on Black Friday is almost as important as what you buy. With a shirt from Busted Tees, you'll look great and be sharing some of your personality with all those around you! Use the discount code GEEKBEATTV and you'll get 10% off your order!
The Kinect will be a great gift this year, but don't expect to find any deals on it. $150 seems to be its minimum price, and it will probably get harder to find as the shopping season progresses.
