    With the holliday season near, Black Friday around the corner, and the economy in the pooper, I figured a thread pointing out deals would be a good idea. Anyone who sees a special bargain, or sale, please post it and let us all know!

    Here are some sites to pay attention to:
    Black Friday Ads for Black Friday 2008 and Black Friday Deals!
    The Bargainist | Deals, Sales & Coupons
    Online Coupons | Deals from DealTaker.com
    Black Friday Ads - The Official Black Friday 2008 Website
    TheBlackFriday.com - Official Black Friday 2008 Site for Black Friday Ads, bf ads & Black Friday Deals, Thanksgiving Sale, Thanksgiving Deals

    One deal I saw yesterday was at Costco. It's for a 46" Sharp Aquos LCD HDTV. It's the lower end Aquos (60hz), but it's only $999.

    Anyone know any good deals?

    Well at least gas is now less than 40lbs of manure. :D

    There's only 1 black Friday sale I take advantage of. For the last 2 years anyway Modells has had a 30% off men's apparel on black Fri until 12 PM. You need the coupon but, it's always in the Sunday paper before Thanksgiving. 2 years ago I got a Brady jersey and last year a Welker. I'm going to try for a Moss this year.

    Are those refurbished units at Macmall? I've been tempted lately to give Apple a try and the macbook pro prices look very appealing.

    I doubt they're refurbed. They would have to let you know if they were. But, they are not the very latest models either.

    Mac mall has been known to deconstruct and reconstruct their machines. My old roommate recently purchased a computer from them - a macbook pro - he got a pretty good deal on it, $500 off...

    Thing is they swapped his hard drive and his graphics card to make it that much cheaper. They then sold those parts online for added profit.

    I have also had multiple people come up to me with the same issue, time and time again. Good luck getting that serviced at the apple store!

    Just find a college student and bring them with you to an apple store. You'll get a good deal...

    Are you telling me that, for once, my college age daughter can provide me a small financial benefit instead of the financial devestation she's solely responsible for :confused:

    I think the world just started spinning in the wrong direction ;)

    I heard on the news that retailers are offering big discounts for BF. But, I'm just not seeing them. I was hoping to find a cheap gaming PC. I know cheap and gaming don't go hand in hand. But, right now I'm using my Macbook Pro which isn't really designed for gaming. I don't need top of the line. I just want something I can put 4 Gigs of RAM and upgrade the video card on. And I don't like running these intensive games on my laptop because the heat for long periods of time isn't good for it. I killed my Powerbook while playing Medal of Honor.

    Some really good discounts are out there. Click on the different stores to see their sale items, and price.

    Black Friday Ads for Black Friday 2008 and Black Friday Deals!

    Some examples:

    10 Best Bets for Black Friday - Yahoo! Shopping

    Tom Tom One Third Edition Nav System
    $69.99 at Pep Boys


    Just like last year, Pep Boys remains the place to go if you're looking for the absolute cheapest GPS system out there on Black Friday. Though the price drop from last year isn't earth-shattering, the good news is that you're actually ending up with a respectable name brand unit this year. TomTom's One v.3 may be a no-frills system, but it's compact, it's in color, and it works.



    HP Pavilion G50-112NR Notebook
    $349.99 at Office Depot


    Though some people will be disappointed that the price on budget notebooks hasn't seemed to budge much further south this year, the hardware you get for the price has taken a huge leap forward. For the first time ever, $350 will buy you a notebook that not only has a dual-core Intel processor, but 3GB of RAM as well, which should be more than adequate for most peoples' needs. And though it's an obscure sale model, it carries the HP name as well.


    Panasonic 42-inch 1080p VIERA Plasma HDTV
    $899.99 at Circuit City


    Skip all the ultra-budgets sets with names you've never heard of, and bag this model (which is bound to be a lot less disappointing in two months) instead. At $400 off MSRP, you're still getting a huge discount, but with a much better quality TV. Panasonic's plasma TVs are renowned for their black levels, and this particular set has received great reviews.




    Magnavox NB500MG9 Blu-Ray Player
    $128 at Wal-Mart


    Nearly a year after HD-DVD bit the bullet, Blu-Ray players are finally falling out of the hands of the home theater elite and into commodity territory. For $128, pretty much anyone with the change for a 1080p television should be able to pick one of these up. It might not be quite as sleek or feature-laden as players twice and three times as expensive, but unless you bust out test patterns and start pulling side-by-side characteristics, most users will never be able to tell the difference.

    Nikon Coolpix P60 + Epson Workforce 30 Inkjet Printer
    $119.99 at OfficeMax


    A respectable camera and respectable printer for less than what one alone should cost? Sold. If you know someone who loves taking photos but hasn't gone digital yet because they want them all printed out, this is your chance to give them the whole package on the cheap.

    Mio Moov 500 GPS
    $149.99 at RadioShack


    For those who would like more features than the rock-bottom TomTom GPS offered at Pep Boys, this Mio offers a significant step up. It has a much larger 4.7-inch screen, text-to-speech capability for spoken street names, and 3.5 million points of interest. Mio systems consistently offer a great blend of function and affordability — and even more so when you can snag one for $100 off retail price.



    Guitar Hero World Tour Guitar Bundle for Wii
    $69.99 at Target


    Hot game, hot price. You won't see the same game any cheaper this holiday season, or likely for a long time to come. If you've been holding out on the whole Guitar Hero phenomenon, here's your chance to get in for far less than everybody else paid.

    Acer 22-inch LCD Monitor
    $129.99 at Office Depot [AL2216Wbd]


    Whether you're still clinging to that old CRT and waiting for LCDs to come down in price, or just need to upgrade from the 17-incher that came with your PC, the price is right for 22 inches of glorious desktop space. This one has solid stats, including 1680 x 1050 resolution and 5ms response times, and has received generally positive reviews, too. Already own a huge monitor? How about dual display? Triple? C'mon...


    Aiptek A-HD 8-Megapixel Camcorder
    $79.99 at Walgreens


    You're not going to shoot the next Star Wars on here, but for what it is, it's hard to argue with such an inexpensive and compact camcorder. Just pop in an SD card (if you don't have one, they can be had for practically nothing in other Black Friday sales and elsewhere) and you're good to shoot 720p high-def video at 30 frames per second, and 8-megapixel stills. At this price, you can get one for the kids, one to shoot those slightly precarious extreme sports videos that end up on YouTube, and one to duct tape to the dog.

    HP AMD Phenom X4 Quad-Core System
    $599.96 at Best Buy


    Notebook computers seem to sop up the majority of attention on Black Friday, but this happens to be one powerful and well-accessorized desktop for the money. Under the hood, you'll find a AMD Phenom X4 Quad-Core processor clocked at 2.2GHz, 6GB of DDR2 memory, and a 640GB hard drive. Add to that a 21.6-inch display and Canon inkjet printer, and you have $1089.96 worth of PC for almost half the price.

    All sports titles for the PS3. XBOX 360, and PSP are $30 at Walmart. I just picked up Madden 09 for my Ps3 for $30!

    Good. I prefered it back in the day where everyone made jerseys and competed pricewise. Reebok charging $75 is a friggin joke.

    It's unfortunate they only have Brady and Moss, however.
