Ipads and TVs and fridges, oh my. Ipads and TVs and fridges, oh my....

Am I wrong, or were people more excited about Black Friday than about Thanksgiving this year?  My husband and I passed a Best Buy as we drove to friends for Thanksgiving dinner, and sure enough, there were people out there in front of the store in tents.  Apparently, Best Buy was selling a 42" LCD tv for $200 this year, which is an INCREDIBLE bargain, but seriously, camping out all day and completely missing Thanksgiving so that you can save $300 on a tv?  Something about that strikes me as sad.

So I am NOT going to be headed out to the stores tomorrow, mostly because I can't deal with all the lines, the mobs and the confusion.  If Black Friday were a bit more civilized, I might be tempted. I've looked through some of the B.F. circulars and aside from a few stellar doorbusters like the Best Buy 42" tv (and remember, the doorbusters sell out very quickly), there doesn't seem to be anything tempting me all that much.  Maybe I'm becoming a Deal Snob, but it seems to me that many of the Black Friday bargains can be gotten online with a sale-coupon-cashback-freeshipping stacking on a regular day.

Here are some good deals that I found in my Black Friday browsing that can either be done from the comfort of your desk chair, or are just a little off the beaten B.F. track, or both.  I hope everyone had a very Happy Thanksgiving with your family and friends and please have a wonderful Shabbat and weekend.
  • ShopAtHome.com is having a "Wild Deal" on Magazines.com:  50% cash back, holy guacamole.  AND, get $5 off your purchase with promo code HOLIDAYMAGS.  I'm getting Joshua an annual subscription to National Review. It's $29.50, less $5 with the promo code = $24.50. I'll get $12.25 in cash back, so my total will be $12.25.  That's a pretty awesome price for a year's worth of National Review.  

Make absolutely sure that before you make a single purchase online, you click through either of my two favorite cash back programs, ShopAtHome.com and Ebates.  They are both having MAJOR Extra-Cash-Back events at the most popular online vendors, and you will always lower your price by clicking through their sites first.  You must be logged into your accounts to receive your cash back from either program. Not a member of ShopAtHome.com or Ebates yet?  Stop procrastinating!  Join ShopAtHome here and join Ebates here.  


That's it for now. If I spot any more interesting deals tomorrow, I'll let you know.  Happy shopping.
