More deals from Nike, WM, Amazon....(So who's going to price match?) Welcome to THE BLACK FRIDAY WEEKEND GRAND POST!! :adding new info all the time; post separated by "parts" (1,2,3..)

Different information is separated in to parts. Part 1 has links to all sorts of Black Friday sale sites. Part 2 has Wal-Mart Cricut Lite sale info (with 7 new carts). Part 3 has specific JoAnns & Michaels sales info. Basically, as I get new info I add another "part", with the newest at the top.  Part 4 has Cyber Monday info, mainly for Wal-Mart. Part 5 is about the Amazon deals that have just started; they are calling them Black Friday deals (Black Friday deals are usually in store) but of course everything is online.  Check continually for new sales being added. Part 6 is about Apple's Black Friday sales event. Part 7 is "misc sales -- everything else" - stuff just passed along to the public at a later date, for instance.

Part 7
  • Amazon -- the Kindle 2 will go on sale at 9 AM Pacific time on Friday for $89
  • -- 70% off of clearance sale plus extra 25% off with the stackable coupon "NIKEAIR".  The other stackable coupon they are offering is "JUSTDOIT" for free shipping (no minimums). And stackable means you can use them both.
  • Wal-Mart will match competitor's prices on in-store purchases beginning Thanksgiving Day and going throughout the weekend. Bring in the competitor's ad & they'll  match the price at the register.
  • will be offering 150 online-only specials  on Thanksgiving Day
  • Amazon has vowed to match competitor's prices online. Go to now & you'll see that they will even tell you when some of the sales will start (in an hour, in an hour and half....they're telling you exactly when the price on something in particular will go down). They say they are scouring both the Internet and the ads for in store sales to either meet or beat the prices.  WOWSA.
  • Best Buy - they have posted PAGES of deals that you will be able to purchase online Thursday through Saturday, and in the store on Friday and Saturday. Click on the link, scroll down a little & on the right you'll see "Access 7 additional pages...".
  • Anything more that is added to this post will be added to this part, Part 7.
Part 6
"The special one-day Apple shopping event is Friday, November 26. Visit an Apple Retail Store beginning at 8:00 a.m. or shop online all day. Start planning today. Browse the Apple Online Store or find an Apple Retail Store near you. "  Click HERE to shop online, and click HERE to find a store near you.
Part 5

Amazon, the online store that has everything, has just started their Black Friday sales.  They will be adding new sales as the day and week go on, so check the site & check it often. Click HERE for more info. There's so much I wouldn't even know where to begin listing.  The sales I glanced at were from 25%-50% off. Here is what they say: "You shouldn’t have to stand in a long line to get a great deal. We’re searching for the best Black Friday deals everywhere--including deals other stores are planning--so we can meet or beat their prices and bring them to you even earlier. These limited-supply offers will go quickly, but we’ll add new ones throughout the day, every day this week, so you can skip the long lines and still save a bundle."

Part 4 is a fantastic site for Cyber Monday information.  Cyber Monday sales are all online.  The site above lists the sales for Wal-Mart (among many others) which include:
  • 42" HDTV for $399 (free site to store shipping)
  • Nintendo Wii with Wii Fit Plus and Balabce Board for $249 (free site to store shipping)
  • Lots of Cameras and TV's on sale
  • The Ipod Shuffle 2 GB (newest) at regular price ($50), but you get the Ematic iPod and MP3 player accessory kit which includes the essentials for listening to tunes on the go (no add'l charge for the Ematic 6 in 1, which is what is described here). The car charger allows you to charge your device in your vehicle. A dust cover helps protect your device from dirt and other elements. The cleaning cloth is ideal for keeping your player looking new. A 3.5mm cable allows you to connect your MP3 player or iPod to a car stereo or home theater system. An audio splitter lets you connect two headphones simultaneously so everyone can enjoy the fun! The USB 2.0 cable connects the player to the computer or charger. There are other options if you want to upgrade.
  • XBOX 360 Value Bundle - $229
    • Choose Your Console
    • Choose Your Additional 2 Games
    • Additional Accessories
    • Extra Game
  •  Blu Ray Value Bundle, choice of 2 movies for $17
The Wal-Mart ad is vast & it's easy to get mixed up what sales are when.  So click on any of the links above to double check when you can purchase what item for the sale price. NOTE: Last year, the Wal-Mart sales started at around 3 AM Cyber Monday.  Start checking at midnight to be sure you get what you want.

Part 2

Here's some more specific stuff--these are new lite carts, excl to Wal-Mart, that are supposed to be $20 on Black Friday.  Have a look!


Part 1
There have been a few posts about current sales, so if you want to see all the big sales that are going on now through the season, you can click Black Friday/Cyber Monday; the link will also be at the top of the page as usual.

First, I want to give a shout out to Menards, a chain of home improvement stores in the Midwestern United States, they have released Black Friday 2010 Ads. Menards stores will open at 6am on the biggest shopping day of the year, Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving. According to the Menards Black Friday 2010 Ad scan, the retailer is offering automotive, clothing & apparel, electronics, home items, sporting goods, toys, video games, etc. Find out more on Black Friday 2010 and Black Friday 2010 Sales. Thanks Neil Jhonson!!  Check out his fabulous blog at  Since we're doing a top ten of these types of blogs and sites below, we'll just call Neil's site #10.  1-9 are below.

Now, the top ten has been missing for a few weeks.  But it's back.  I'm giving you this list because I may not list a sale you are looking for, etc.  Here goes:
  1. -- check this one often.  They've got the Wal-Mart, K-Mart, Cabelas, Dick's, Stapes and MANY MANY MANY more.  They will tell you what is on sale for how much what day if they can get that information (sometimes the info is given to them, sometimes it's leaked).
  2. Yep, this is a page from the site above.  It gives very specific pricing information for Wal-Mart, & I wanted to point that out.
  3. -- another one like the one above, organized a bit different (I like this one a little better, but they both have such good information). They list who has the hottest BF deals, the hottest online deals, etc.  They keep up to date; they have copies of the published ads in a section in the middle a little way down--just click on the name of the store. You will also be able to find the unpublished sales as well.  Take a look on THIS PAGE at some of Costco's unpub deals: Costco Unadvertised Deals For Black Friday Weekend 2010 Canon - SD 940 Camera Bundle ($40 Off)Fuji - JX250 Camera Bundle ($20 Off) Gateway Desktop PC (DX4320-02E)-23"/AMD Phenom2 820/6 RAM/640 HD (#100 Off) Laptop (NV59C09U) 15.6"/Intel i3 330M/4 RAM/320 HD/CD-DVD-Blu Ray Drive ($100 Off)Hewlett Packard - Laptop (DV6-3142CL) 15.6"/AMD Phenom2 N640/4 RAM/640 HD/CD-DVD-Blu Ray Drive ($100 Off) 42" LED LCD TV (TC-42LD24) ($200 Off)
  4. -- You need to visit this one if for no other reason than to try & win an Xbox 360 (and feel free to send it my Take a look at the ad below.....interesting how some retailers will be handling the crowds.
  5. This is another well organized site that is also an app for Droid & I assume the IPhone as well. It enables you to create your shopping list accordingly.  Very easy to use, helps you strategize your day/weekend better.
  6. This site helps you get coupons AND has the sales listed.  Not sure you can use a coupon on a hot black friday deal, but it never hurts to have a coupon for something you want that's not on sale.
  7. This is CNN's contribution to the Black Friday part.  It also has gift guides, advice for  those who hate lines, etc.
  8. This is a great site because it shows you the actual ads, tells you where you can go online, and helps you make a shopping list like some of the ones above.
  9. Another great one with a lot of specific prices & help making your shopping list.
  10. see just above this list-- --he was the first one to email me, so I featured him first & am also including him in the top ten.
--*more ON THIS POST later on today, specific to the hotter deals, stores, and CRAFTS!!*--
