We have looked through all the leaked and available Black Friday deals and have come up with a list of retailers who have by far the best deals. From the entire list, Walmart and Target have the best Black Friday deals. For example Tom Tom GPS for $59 or a Blu-Ray player for under $100 ($78 to be exact). Or what about at 32 inch High Definition LCD for $246. Target and Walmart have really stepped it up this year which is great. However, on the other side Best Buy deals look worse then last year. Not sure why since they want to draw more shoppers.
All the deals are in the full storyWalmart
The ad, which comes six days ahead of schedule, contains a number of hot early-bird specials (5 a.m. to 11 a.m.), while supplies last:
*Emerson 32â€ LCD 720p HDTV for $248
*Emerson 42â€ Plasma 720p HDTV marked down to $448
*Magnavox Blu-ray Disc player for $78 instead of $128
*E-Machines laptop for $198, regularly $300
*HP G60 laptop for $298, down from $600
Some shoppers trolling online bargain sites were also excited about the doorbuster Playstation 3 Console with 120 GB hard drive for $299. Thatâ€™s regular price, but it comes with a free bundle of the games Infamous and Batman: Arkham Asylum, as well as the Blu-ray version of The Dark Knight.
All day Friday, Wal-Mart will be selling the 8GB iPod for $195 with a $50 iTunes gift card included.
For those with smaller budgets, itâ€™s also offering a Tom Tom One 125-SE GPS for $59 (regularly $164 on Amazon), as well as a number of $4 kitchen appliances such as a slow cooker and hand mixer.
Some of these deals will undoubtedly be available online, preempting that cold-weather campout. But probably not all, says Brad Olson of BlackFriday.Gottadeal.com.
Of all the leaked Black Friday ads we’ve seen, it appears that Target and Wal-Mart are the ones to beat this holiday season. However, Wal-Mart will price-match other stores’ deals (in store and online, as long as the product is identical). DealNews has posted information on retailers who match prices here.
Looks like Black Friday shoppers can â€œexpect more, pay lessâ€ at Targetâ€™s post-Turkey Day sale.
Target’s leaked ad shows some great deals on $20 DVDs, such as Pixarâ€™s Up for $13; Transformers and Madagascar 2 for $5.99; and The Dark Knight and Sex in the City for $3.99.
On Friday, while supplies last, you can get Chefmate small kitchen appliances for $3 â€“ including a toaster, slow cooker, coffee maker and sandwich press.
In the electronics department, thereâ€™s a Tom Tom XL340s GPS for $97 (originally $249.99), as well as a 32â€ Westinghouse 720p LCD HDTV for $246 (regularly $429.99).
â€œThatâ€™s the cheapest weâ€™ve ever seen on a model that size,â€ says Brad Olson of Blackfriday.gottadeal.com
And on Friday only, there are $89 themed Lego sets, such as an Indiana Jones Kingdom of the Crystal Skull model, for $49, while supplies last.
Other bargains were hot mostly for the bonus gift cards thrown in: The $149 8GB iPod Nano for $145 comes with a $15 Target card. The Nintendo DS bundle for $169 comes with a $20 card.
And for those shopping for themselves, thereâ€™s a nice deal on a Western Digital 1TB desktop hard drive for $59.98 (regularly $99.99)
Many of these deals can be found online on Thanksgiving Day. But as an enticement to get shoppers into the stores, Target is giving out $10 gift cards with each $100 purchase between 5 a.m. and noon Friday.
Holiday bargain shoppers are crying â€œBah Humbug!â€ after seeing the leaked Black Friday ad from electronics giant Best Buy.
Many of its so-called hot deals on laptops, GPS devices and TVs have already been bested by pre-Turkey Day sales from Target, Sears, Wal-Mart and others, says Michael Brim, founder of BFads.net, which posted the ad.
However, there are some gaming doorbusters to be had. Consoles are regular price, but a number of hot game titles are thrown in to sweeten the deal. (Console makers donâ€™t condone big discounts off their suggested retail price, so Best Buy and others use gift cards and free games to get shoppers to open their wallets.)
The 120 GB Sony Playstation 3, $299, is bundled with Little Big Planet and Ratchet & Clank.
The Xbox 360 Elite 1GB system is selling for $299 with the standard Lego Batman and Pure titles, as well as four extra games such as Ghost Recon 2 and Spiderman: Web of Shadows.
Other doorbuster deals on Xbox 360 and PS3 game titles include Left 4 Dead 2, Dragon Age, Brutal Legend and Madden 10 for $34.99 instead of $59.99.
And some people dissecting the ad on bargain sites were excited about the $200 Samsung BD-P1600 Blu-ray player or Sony BDP-S360 Blu-ray for $149.99 with a free movie. (Many of the recent Blu-ray movie releases, such as Monsters vs. Aliens, are also priced at $9.99).
Will this be enough to get people camping out before its 5 a.m. opening? We’ll see. The chain is offering 18-month, no-interest financing for purchases over $249.
Still, most shoppers trolling online deals sites wonâ€™t budget for Best Buy — unless it has another secret sale like last year, where the chain promoted some last-minute bargains online.
