Best Black Friday Deals For Your Home
The holidays are quickly approaching and there are some pretty great deals on everything from smart home accessories to TVs and computers, appliances, video game consoles and just about everything else you can imagine. If you’re a serious shopper and looking for a great bargain, now is the time to start planning your shopping routine.
Almost every store and online vendor will be having Black Friday deals, so take your time and review each ad carefully. A lot of products have similar pricing across the board, but some vendors are offering far better deals than others. For those items that are extremely popular or limited, like the classic Nintendo that was just re-released for only $59 with 30 original games, you will have to use a little skill and perhaps multiple devices to win/buy these items.
Don't sweat it, I did most of the hard work for you!

Most of these online vendors offer services like Amazon.com which has a great feature that when you use their mobile app, it lets you mark upcoming sale items and be notified the moment the discounts hit. Some of these vendors can alert you when hard to find items are back in stock. Here is a great link to one site that will check most of the online sources as well as many local stores for specific items. I used this last night for a couple things and it works great.
Best of luck to all of you crazy kids. Shop till you drop!
