Let's face it, as manic as Black Friday is each year, the deals on electronics, kitchenware, clothing and jewelry are seriously unbeatable. Retailers, like Walmart, Target and Macy's, are selling some of their most popular items at discounts of 30% or more off the regular price. And this year, in addition to opening early on Thanksgiving Day, some stores are starting their crazy deals a week early with Pre-Black Friday sales. But instead of getting trampled at the store when you spot an HD TV you didn't know would be less than $100, we did the work for you so you can go into Black Friday with a clear plan of action.
Whether you're shopping for a gift for your boyfriend, husband, or one you can use as a couple, here are some of the hottest steals this season.
Walmart Black Friday Deals:
Walmart, the king of inexpensive, starts Black Friday at 6 pm on Thursday in stores. The hottest deals this year are more affordable than ever, and they're guaranteed to be in stock for at least one hour. So after you inhale your turkey and scarf down those sweet potatoes, take that pumpkin pie to-go and sprint to the mega store because these deals are truly insane.
Element 40" Class LCD 1080p HDTV
Black Friday Price: $178
Regular Price: Black Friday Only, but for reference, the 50" (now $288) was originally $498
An HD TV for less than $200? I'll take two, please. Seriously, this deal is too good to pass up. The football game and Sons of Anarchy are about to look a whole lot better. If he wants something smaller (hey, those city apartment's are tiny) this 32" tube — also LED HDTV — is only $98. Yes, you're reading that right.
George Foreman 5-Serving Removable Plate Grill
Black Friday Price: $9.44
Regular Price: $54.99
It's about to get hotter in here. What grill master wouldn't love a small, easy-to-clean machine that prepares meals in just 20 minutes? Honestly, they all would. And the only person who will love it more than him is you because this deal is ridiculous. Also because you'll be the recipient of his irresistable burgers.
Apple iPad Mini
Black Friday Price: $299
Regular price: $329
She'll get all the amazing features of an iPad in this tiny version that's almost (but definitely not) as cute as her. The device will fit right in her hand, making it easy to snap pictures using the 5MP iSight camera or take a video using the 1080p HD video recording on your next romantic getaway. The tablet, which comes in white or black, also has FaceTime, so when one of you is away on a business trip you can video chat as much as you'd like.
Black Friday Price: $3.96
Regular Price: $12.96
Walmart's offering 37 movies for the low price of $3.96. Yep, that's cheaper than her Chai Latte! Whether she's a Bridesmaids fanatic, teared up during Argo or laughed out loud during Ted, there's plenty of great flicks to choose from. And since they're so cheap, you may as well pick out a bunch and cuddle up for a movie marathon.
For The Two Of You:
LG Blu Ray Player
Black Friday Price: $38
Regular Price: N/A, Black Friday Only. For reference, this similar model is $99
Is it even legal for a Blu Ray player to be priced this low? Yes, it is and Walmart's selling the device for the lowest of the low — nearly $20 lower than Best Buy and Target. The hot item, which plays your favorite 3D and 2D Blu-ray movies in Full HD, is guaranteed to be in stock for at least one hour, so you may want to leave now. This one's worth waiting in line for.
