As we all wait to see what kind of Black Friday deals Apple.com will post in the morning, resellers of the company’s products are already doing some deep discounting of their own in advance of Cupertino.
That collective inhale you heard this week was the breath of thousands of U.S. retailers preparing for Friday, November 26 -- better known to shoppers as Black Friday. Here’s how to make the best of the day, as well as its online equivalent, Cyber Monday, on November 29.
Black Friday is traditionally the day many retailers rely on to get “into the black” (i.e., profit) for the year. One company that doesn’t have to worry about that is Apple, although they still get into the spirit of things anyway.
Last week Apple fans went crazy over the fact that TJ Max (and it's sister chain Marshalls) announced they would be selling the 16GB Wi-Fi only iPad for only $399.99. With an almost $100 departure from Apple's pricing, one person turned to Steve Jobs' email address for some answers. What he replied, however, is somewhat surprising.
Gamblers can find just about any reason to indulge in their favorite temptation, and with the Black Friday shopping season only a week away, odds makers are already placing their own bets on who will be hot this shopping season.
In what alternate universe would you have to live to hear this: “Honey, next time you’re down at TJ Maxx getting a great deal on clothes, pick me up one of those iPads I keep hearing about.” As it turns out, it’s not only a reality, but it could be happening in this very universe.
Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving in the United States, has
become one of the most popular shopping days over the years. With the
economic situation, there’s no doubt that more people will be looking
for deals when it comes to holiday shopping.
