#BlackFriday: What to Expect in the Coming Week


Over the next few days, you will be overwhelmed with sales, discounts, and other hot deals. But often, it may seem difficult to score the bargains you really want. Here's what to expect over the next week and how to take advantage.

While some merchants have jumped the gun, many of the online sales will begin either Wednesday evening or early Thursday morning. Some merchants have already started their "pre-black Friday" sales and more will surely follow. Newegg is usually one of the first to come on board with an actual Black Friday sale, sometimes starting on Wednesday afternoon. Other stores, such as Wal-Mart and Target, will hold off on their deals until midnight Thursday, Thanksgiving Day.

Scoring the online doorbuster deals requires some persistance and sometimes weird sleep schedules. If you're looking for the killer hard drive or computer deal, these often appear online for just a few minutes or hours. And yes, you may need to stay up until 3 AM on the east coast to sscore it.

If you're looking at an item, act immediately as soon as you see our post. We'll usually link to the main sale when it goes live and then try to highlight specific deals as we notice them, though some of the best ones sell out quite quickly. The best way to stay on top of things is to follow us on Twitter. Many of the best Black Friday deals will never make it to the E-mail newsletter because they will be sold out by morning. Remember that if there's something you're looking for, you can contact us and we'll try our best to help you find the best deal. Also, don't forget to search our merchant directory. There are over 150 stores there and you can find lots of great prices anytime.

While Cyber Monday will bring more sales, they often seem to focus more on the smaller online retailers. The best computer and technology deals will likely come this week, not on Cyber Monday. Also, many smaller online stores will run Black Friday or Cyber Monday coupons good on just about any item in their stores. These can be great for creating your own deal, as the big sales focus heavily on the most wanted items.

Be sure to stay on top of Blind Bargains throughout the holidays, and do let us know what you're looking for so we can try and help out. Matt, J.J. and I will be online during both events, posting as many deals as we can. Enjoy the ride.
