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 [1] has the exact same television on sale for $799.00. And you can order it in your pajamas.  And get cash back from ebates [2].  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!
