Black Friday Shopping




A mere coincidence that I will be in US during Black Friday (not travelling specially for this). I have no experience of shopping on this mega discount day..

Looking for tips / suggestions from people who have experience with shopping on this day. I am mostly interested in shopping online. Lining up in front of a store from midnight is certainly not my thing. I prefer buying at a 30% discount online rather than 50-60% by lining up till the store opens.

What are a few (best) online retailers for electronics and computers? I am planning to buy an SLR camera, media player, gps, laptop, cordless phone set, etc.

Any advise / tips are appreciated.

Here are a few sites

These sites will only post the ads for various brick and on-line stores. Depending on what you're looking for, keep checking these sites for the deals

I dont know how being there on BF will help you with online shopping. Anything you purchase will take anything from 1 week to 3 weeks for delivery. The only benefit will be able to logging in from US...

Good luck.

Thanks SS and Hiren. I will be in US for like 3 weeks or so. my better-half is also saying she wants to visit some stores mid-day or so on Black Friday. Not sure how busy it is then in terms of lineups.

Does anyone know what are the post popular online stores for electronics in the states? Or even a site similar to RFD, which I can browse to find further information.

In Canada I have used NCIX, newegg, tddirect etc for electronics, but not sure if their US counterparts are as "popular".
