Black Friday 2009 is around the corner. Black Friday 2009 deals at Wal-Mart and Best Buy are important for Black Friday deal hunters. This year, Black Friday is more important than ever because job losses and uncertainty of the future makes many consumers hesitant to spend.
I know I will be keeping a better eye on Black Friday deals this year. I have to do more with less. Many retailers such as Sears, Wal-Mart, and Best Buy are offering stellar deals in the weeks leading up to 2009 Black Friday. Sears has weekly doorbuster sales with deals that change every week. According to MSN, Wal-Mart kicked off the first of several “one week savings events” on November 7.
During the week of November 7, you can get an HP Notebook computer for $298, a Sharp 42 inch TV for 498, an Xbox 360 Arcade for $199 plus a $100 Wal-Mart e-gift certificate, a Sony BluRay player for $148 and $20 turkey dinners for 8.
Yes, you heard me right. Now through Thanksgiving, you can get the following meal items at Wal-Mart for $20 total:
One 12-pound Grade A turkey.
Three 11 to 15.5-ounce cans Green Giant vegetables.
Two 14-ounce cans Ocean Spray cranberry sauce.
Three 6-ounce boxes of Stove Top stuffing.
One 5-pound bag of red potatoes.
One 12-count package of Sara Lee dinner rolls.
One 22-ounce pumpkin roll cake.
Of course, Wal-Mart isn’t the only retailer offering early sales. Best Buy offered a 42″ TV for $498.99, only .99 more than Wal-Marts similar model. In addition, Best Buy is hosting their annual VIP Black Friday sale. Winners in each of their 25 markets will receive a $1,000 Best Buy giftcard and limo service to their nearby Best Buy location. In addition, the winners get to go in the store first and pick out all of their favorite deals. This would be the ultimate Black Friday deal of them all.
Expect to see a lot of discounts on electronics, gaming systems, computers – especially notebooks and smaller netbooks, TVs, Blu-ray players, DVD players, and much, much more. This may be the year you can afford to purchase your kids a computer AND an mp3 player, PLUS a variety of clothing.
Although the Black Friday deals are rolling out early, don’t expect to be disappointed on the big day. I still think the best deals will be found the day after Thanksgiving, the traditional Black Friday.
