Black Friday Deals

Attention, US Shoppers:

With the economy still punk, there are plenty of shopping deals to be had — if you know where to look. Here is a short list:

• Amazon has already announced its Black Friday promotions, including discounts from other stores.

Black Friday Ads publishes daily updates featuring the best deals on electronics; categorizes offers by retailer• allows shoppers to create a Black Friday shopping list — noting what sales promotions goes with each item;

• Some shopping experts believe that Black Friday is the best day if the year to buy a car; reviews all of the gadgets that are in Black Friday gadgets deals — in real time. (Use the Retrevo Real Time Review to see if the products you are interested in are worth waiting in line for) tracks sales each year, separating the junk from the higher-end stuff.  “Black Friday is about cheap stuff at cheap prices.”

• Apple has a mysterious Black Friday online ad

• DealsVista has a deals spreadsheet that can be viewed online or downloaded;

Shoppers Shop has an online table of deals (including start and end dates).

• Black Friday-themed Twitter account posting deals as they materialize

One other thing to note: Retailers are said to have gone easy on the inventory — so the game of chicken, where discounts pile on as we get closer the 12/25 — might not work this year.

My advice: If you find something at what you thing to be a fair price — grab it, rather than missing the buy in the hopes of getting a few more drachmas discounted.
