Black Friday Ads (bfads.net)
If you’re not sure which store will have which deal, head to Black Friday Ads, which scans and tags Black Friday circulars from all the major retailers. Those circulars are then searchable, so you can, for example, see all the computer deals from Dell or electronics at Sam’s Club. It’s a little easier than sifting through newspaper circulars at your dining room table.
Black Friday@GottaDeal lists all the Black Friday ads as they are made available. You can search by category and see which stores have deals on electronics or televisions, for example.
At Amazon, it’s not really Black Friday, it’s a month+ of deals. Things got started last week with a Black Friday Deals Store and over a dozen curated gift guides. Accessible through Dec. 22, the Deals Store features discounts on electronics, toys, clothing, kitchen items, and more.
On Offers.com, you can search by store or peruse Black Friday circulars ahead of the big day. Among other things, see which TVs will be on sale at Newegg and Samsung and which laptops you can pick up from the Microsoft Store or Amazon.
TechBargains.com is already compiling early Black Friday deals, but you can also shop by store, including Amazon, Dell, HP, and more.
