Top Deals for Black Friday Shopping

Wednesday November 23, 2011 by ChickAdvisor Team

Black Friday - so named because it's that magical day of the year when retailers go from a Loss on the balance sheet to a Gain ("back in the black" as they say) - is nearly upon us.  Frenzied deal seekers are packing up their tents, hot mitts, and thermoses to settle in for predictably long waits outside the stores.

And while that seems insane, so do some of these deals they're going to great lengths to get.  We have to admit: it's mighty tempting!

Here are some of the biggest bargains we spotted:

Lots of deals. My friend ALWAYS does black Friday shopping. It's an event for her. I have yet to experience it, I've always done the Canadian boxing day shopping. However there's been a decline in deals the last couple of years for boxing day it almost leaves you no choice but to boost the US economy by crossing the boarder since Canada doesn't compare.

Thanks for the shopping finds, but I wish Canadian retailers would only drop their prices like the US counterparts. I love to shop, but I prefer to spend my Canadian dollars in Canada and I don't really do the cross border shopping - too much hassle.
