While most people spend Thanksgiving thinking about the things in their life that they're grateful for, some see it simply as the pre-game before the real holiday: Black Friday. Those who are willing to brave the early morning haze and long lines — warmed by the still-digesting feast in their stomachs — are rewarded with the chance to save (and spend) tons of money at stores of all sorts. But you can't go out unprepared into the shopping wilderness that is Black Friday. Arm yourself with your iOS device and let these eight apps be the compass that guides you happily to ultimate savings.
The 2013 holiday season hasn't kicked off yet, but it's already a great time to buy an iPhone 5c as retailers attempt to undercut each other with deals that allow buyers to nab a phone for as low as $45 up front.
Still need to add the Harry Potter or Lord of the Rings movies to your collection? If you act quickly, you can get them for dirt cheap thanks to a limited-time bundle sale going on right now at the iTunes Store.
Seems like everywhere you look, Apple's iPhone is on sale at bargain prices -- a big departure from a couple years ago, when there were simply no savings to be found. But if you want the absolute best deal, head to Walmart.
