The Black Friday Myth

I know some people probably shudder when I say I have no plans to shop in stores on Black Friday.  I’m a planner and have few gifts to buy, so I start early.  But I wanted to show you another reason why:

This Friday Walmart will have the Samsung 46″ LN46C600 120Hz 1080p LCD HDTV on sale for $798.00.

TODAY Target has the exact same television on sale for $799.00. And you can order it in your pajamas.  And get cash back from ebates.  And pay no sales tax.

So if one deal involves me getting up at 3 a.m. and the other lets me order something at my leisure and have it delivered to my home there isn’t much competition. 

If you enjoy the tradition and the adrenaline from Black Friday then go and have a blast!  But if you are looking strictly at prices, sometimes the best deal lets you sleep in!

    Prices online will change frequently. I have never tried it before but some people have told me you can price match TVs on Amazon when you send them the link to the better deal. Target has said they are not going to price match on Black Friday-Walmart is the only company who has said they will price match. Check as well- they seem to have good pricing on items.

    Hey there….so I was interested in what you said about the TV’s and the tv price at Target for the 46″ 1080 dpi, 120 hz at Target is $949 and the 40″ is $749….still a good deal but $200 more at Target. I know they’ll match in store….I might get stuck going out tomorrow:)
