Via Techbargains also you can find lots of great bargains there.

TIP #1: Do Plan Ahead

This is so you can allocate your budget accordingly. It also means you need to get your hands on the Black Friday Ads before they’re published. You can go to sites like blackfridayhome.com for that, but be forewarned Black Friday ads for one store alone can be 40 pages long. To save you time, we’ll be sending out an email exclusively to our newsletter subscribers previewing the best Black Friday deals. Sign up for our free newsletter if you’re not currently a subscriber. We’ll be putting this together at the last minute to maximize the accuracy so it won’t be pretty, but we promise it will be informative.

TIP #2: Don’t Wait in Early Morning Friday Store Lines

Contrary to popular belief, almost of the Black Friday items are available online. The reason everyone thinks they need to go into stores is because that’s what the mainstream media likes to show because it’s dramatic and newsworthy. Save the drama for other parts of your life and stay in the comfort of your home.

TIP #3: Do Be Online at Midnight Eastern Time on Thanksgiving Day Nov 27

Yes we do mean Thursday and not Black Friday. Contrary to popular belief many Black Friday Sales can begin on Thursday at midnight (same as Wednesday 9pm PST). Come to Techbargains at that time and the next evening as well. We’ll be online highlighting the best deals the moment they go live.

TIP #4: Do Keep in Mind Great Deals can Last Beyond Black Friday

If you miss some of the Black Friday deals don’t be disheartened. While Black Friday gets all the attention, its younger sibling Cyber Monday may actually be the bigger overall shopping day. Now we do understand no one besides us would be online continuously from Thursday to Monday so we suggest that you add our popular RSS Feed or follow us on Twitter. On both venues, we’ll highlight the best deals to you the moment they become available.
