Black Friday, Cyber Monday

Black Friday Deals And Cyber Monday Madness

It’s all about Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals this Thanksgiving, but what about deals before Black Friday?

Plenty of retailers, such as Target, Toys ‘R’ Us and Amazon.com, have already kicked off the holiday season with incredibly low prices on high-end items with online-only specials.

Pre-Black Friday Sales

Here are two retailers holding pre-Black Friday sales:

Target

Target has pre-Black Friday deals online and in-store until Wednesday, Nov. 23.

In addition to the great deals, Target is also supplying coupons for the items on sale on its website. Sale items include electronics, toys and household items.

But Black Friday sales are what it’s all about, and Target has a slew of hot items at great prices. In the electronics department, you can find hot buys on the Kindle 3G, a PS3 bundle and a TOMTOM GPS system. Then there are the toys, clothes and household items with door buster prices. And for those deals, you have to wait until Friday.

Toys ‘R’ Us

Toys ‘R’ Us has special deals on Leapfrog books and Leapster learning games, select LEGO games and Radio Flyer Scooters. Additional promotions include, buy one, get one 40 percent off for DS and 3DS video games, and an Olympus 12 mpx digital camera for $69.99, as well as saving up to 50 percent on board games. Customers get free shipping for an order of $49 or more. But hurry, you only have until Nov. 23 to pick up the savings.


Pre-Black Friday Online Retailers

Here are a couple online retailers holding pre-Black Friday sales:

Overstock.com

Overstock.com is overflowing with great pre-Black Friday red line deals. From cameras to televisions, some of these red line items are already sold out. There is also an extra 10 percent savings on select outerwear and boots, and don’t forget to stay cozy with some new winter bedding. Overstock.com also offers some great steals on jewelry and designer frocks.

Amazon.com

Another pre-Black Friday, retailer is Amazon.com. Amazon has started their time-released lightning deals on Monday, Nov. 21, and they will run all week long. Amazon.com did this last year to entice online holiday sales, and this year it’s taken off in force; in less than an hour from its 4 p.m. release time, a Haurex Italy Men’s Red Arrow U.C. Sampdoria Chronograph Tachymeter Rubber Watch that retails for $800, sold out for $99. The same goes for the Blu-Ray Pulp Fiction DVD for $3.99 from its $19.99 list price — and when it’s gone, it’s gone.

Deals are released approximately every hour with only a clue as to what the product might be.


Black Friday Deals

Many, many retailers are boasting great Black Friday deals, but here are a few:

Apple

Apple is known for set prices on its products and accessories, but this Black Friday Mac products will be 10 to 15 percent off. Mac’s will be approximately $101 off the regular price and iPad’s will be $41 – 61 off depending on storage size. The biggest savings will be the base level Macbook Air starting at $898. Apple is also discounting its accessories such as the iPad 2 Smart Cover, the Apple Wireless Keyboard and the Apple Wireless Magic Trackpad.

Macy’s

Macy’s is known for its historic Thanksgiving Day Parade (that airs 9 a.m. – 12 p.m. ET Thanksgiving Day), but they also have some incredible deals, such as ladies cashmere sweaters for $40 (regular retail value $109), as well as men’s Oscar de la Renta sweaters starting at $30.
