Black Friday and Cyber Monday: tablet, phone and gift card deals
I am not into the whole day after Thanksgiving Day shopping craziness, known as Black Friday. That it is intruding into Thanksgiving Day itself is a very bad trend, indeed. But TNM readers are clearly more enthusiastic about that than I am, if web traffic reports are to be believed.
For those outside the U.S., who might not be familiar with the term Black Friday, you need to know that the reason it is called that is that this is the day retailers sell so much merchandise that they are then profitable – from red (loss) to black (profit).
Here are some of the things I found that might interest TNM readers:
Sam’s Club: Apple iTunes $100 Gift Cards Multipack: $79.88 (Saturday, Nov. 30 through Sunday, Dec. 8)
Inkling: Free Inkling Classics Holiday Collection download (on iOS app)
Templatic: The WordPress theme builder is having a Black Friday sales (really). Buy 1, Get 1 Free.
Target: Deals on iPads – iPad Air $379 (Walmart has the best deal on an iPad mini (original) at $199
Amazon: Xbox 360 at $189.99. Lots of PC deals, as well, assuming you are looking for a cheap PC. Cameras are also pretty cheap – a result, no doubt of the fact that people are using their phones to take pictures now rather than a dedicated camera.
Best Buy: iPad 2 at $299.99, Amazon Kindle Fire HD 7 at $99.99, Samsung Galaxy S 4 4G free with 2 year activation, MacBook Pro 13.3″ at $1099.99 (that’s $200 off which is not too bad)
Barnes & Noble: NOOK Simple Touch for $39, NOOK HD Tablet for $79
Tablet Publishing – Winter 2013: Not on sale, still $3.99. But definitely still a bargain!
