    Here's a link to Adscans listing a lot of the major "chain store" black friday specials:

    ... it does look like some early "intel" was true, though ... Target is offering three appliances for $3 each. Not sure how long they'd last, but $3 for an appliance? A quarter-pounder meal costs $6 around here.

    Before you get too exceited and run out the door in your pajamas to go shopping, though, read this:

    If nothing else, the adscans are a quick way to look for gift ideas, especially for the kids.

    Yeah, I don't like to go to stores at all during the holidays, and do as much on-line shopping as I can. Too many pushy rude people in the stores, kinda undermines my holiday spirit when I have to start contemplating knocking heads together. [​IMG]

    I know people on this forum like to bargain hunt, though. I co-worker sent out that adscan link, and I thought it was kinda cool.

    I used to do a lot of my Christmas shopping on EBay; found a lot of small shops with unique stuff that way, and there's no parking problems in front of my computer. I park there all the time!
