UPDTED! BLACK FRIDAY MAP: part 1 & blendtec GIVEAWAY

You guys know it’s coming. The Superbowl of shopping days. BLACK FRIDAY. And I’ve spent hours (and I mean HOURS!!) mapping out the BEST places to get the very hottest items this year. Items that YOU requested in my Black Friday forecast giveaway.

This map is meant to help you know where to get stuff if you’re brave and planning on bundling up in the ice bitter freezing cold and braving the stampedes on Friday, OR you could stay home in your jammies and open a web browser Friday morning and i’ll have all of these deals right at your finger tips. Up to you! But this way you’ll know what’s coming after studying & dissecting all of the Black Friday ads.

This is just part 1 friends. Part 2? It hits the blog tomorrow. But let’s get started.

tvs-black-friday

TVs:
Target: Element 40” 1080P LED HDTV $119 – best bang for your buck out of stock online
Best Buy: UHDTV Samsung 55” $899.99 – best deal on a UHDTV (so far). out of stock online
*don’t be too sad because i PROMISE the tv deals tomorrow will be AMAZEBALLS!!!

THIS is important though: AMAZON will be matching competitor’s prices like mad on Friday (meaning drop their online prices to match competitors). And especially if you live in a state where you don’t pay tax on Amazon purchases (UTAH!) you can save even more by ordering from them. *it’s come to my attention that you are supposed to report your purchases from other states on your taxes at the end of the year under use tax. you can read more about that here.

Also, free 2 day shipping if you’re a prime member? Yes please. Also, they will deliver it to your home (no struggling to get a TV home in the car without breaking it) and it’s white-glove delivery service so they’ll unpack it, set it up for you, and dispose of the box after if you want. For free. So, get ready for that. Last year they price matched everyone: Best Buy, Walmart, Costco. We’ll have all of those price comparisons for you right here to make it nice and easy.

black-friday-laptops

Laptops/Computers:
Staples: Asus 11.6 Laptop with 2GB ram: $99.99 – best bang for your buck (in-store only)
Best Buy: Macbook Pro $200 off
Best Buy iMac: $200 OFF
Best Buy Macbook Air $150 OFF
*best deals you’ll see all year on Mac computers.

tablets-ipads-black-friday

Tablets/iPads:
*new: BestBuy DigiLand 7″ Dual Core Tablet $29.99 – best bang for your buck!
Target: Android tablet $39.99 – best bang for your buck if you need an inexpensive one out of stock online
Target: iPad mini $249 + $80 gift card = $169
Walmart: iPad mini $199 + $30 gift card = $169 out of stock online
Same price in the end, depends on where you want a gift card!

Best Buy: iPad mini 3 $75 OFF

black-friday-beats
Beats by Dre:
Radio Shack: $69.99 after $60 mail-in rebate
Best Buy: $79.99 in black, white, red – my pick because who wants to mess with a mail-in? (sold out online)

black-friday-canon-rebel

Canon Rebel:
amazon Canon Rebel t5 $399.99
Best Buy: Canon Rebel t5 $399.99
Sears: Canon Rebel t5 $399.99
I highly expect amazon to price match (if not BEAT) this! We’ll cover ALL the best Canon Rebel deals here on Friday!

black-friday-fitbit

Fitbit:
Sam’s Club: $79.98 black, green out of stock online
Best Buy: $79.90 black
Several other retailers will have it for $99.99 on Friday but these two are the best advertised deals!

 

pink-pmd

YES! for those of you who have been asking (begging!) for a PMD deal, I’m going to make your dreams come true. There will be a mint arrow exclusive deal on the PMD Personal Microderm on Black Friday, and it will be the best price EVER. That’s really all I can say. And that you can ONLY find the deal here. And yes, all colors included!!!
Also, since so many of you have asked what time this deal will go live, watch for it at MIDNIGHT EST Thursday night (technically 12:00 a.m. EST Friday Nov 28), which means all mountain time people can expect it at 10:00 p.m. MST!

Blendtec_Designer 725_1

Blendtec Blender:
I can’t spill the beans just yet on the exact promo but I have privileged information on a Black Friday deal that’s going to BEAT the best price ever on a blendtec blender! I can tell you that it will include all refurbished blenders including the Blendtec Designer Series Certified Refurbished (pictured above) to the Total Blender Refurbished (what I own and love!). Wait for it because it’s going to be GOOD.

Okay guys, that’s it for today but TOMORROW I’ll be back with part 2 of the Black Friday map with even more of your most-requested deals and where to expect them based upon the Black Friday ads. Remember that we won’t know exactly where the BEST deals are for sure until Black Friday and Cyber Monday. I’ll be posting ALL of the best HERE making it super easy for you to see, compare, and not have to hassle with the research!

This is your last chance to leave me requests! I’m giving away TWO Designer 725 Blendtec Blenders plus a twister jar attachment (total value $769.94!) and entering is SUPER easy – all you have to do is comment in the giveaway widget below with the deals you need MOST on Black Friday! (winner will be announced in the BLENDTEC black friday post ON black friday!)

This is the best and easiest way for me to track requests and how many people are dying to have deals on the same things because it all goes into a spreadsheet after! It’s really hard to keep track of comments left on my social media so please make this easy on me so I can make it easy on you, and enter them in the form below!

Thanks guys and good luck!!!

*this giveaway is over. winners announced here.

Really excited! Does your pmd deal start at midnight or at a certain time friday? Not sure if you can tell or not! Just want to make sure I don’t miss it! Thanks!

I’ll check into this and be sure to address it in part 2 of the BF map tomorrow!!

Melissa:

This might be a dumb question but how do you price match on amazon. I have no idea how to do that.

Reply
Corrine:

Hey Melissa! So sorry about the confusion. Amazon will match many competitors prices on BF by dropping their prices. We will have all of those listed for you right here to make it super easy 🙂

Reply
Ginger Smith:

AHH! That sounds so amazing! I cannot wait to see this all go down. I am so excited to do so much amazon shopping this year. Thank you for all you do! 🙂

Reply
Kristian:

So I have a question about Amazon price matching. Do they price match before you buy? Or do you have to pay their price and then be refunded the difference?

Reply
Corrine:

Hi Kristen! Sorry to cause confusion! Amazon won’t “price match” individually but they’ll be matching or beating competitors’ prices on BF on many items. We’ll have all of those listed right here on the blog!

Reply
Whitney:

How does the Amazon price matching work? Is there a code or does amazon lower their prices to match the other Black Friday deals? Are there limited quantities on items such as TVs?

Reply
Corrine:

Hey Whitney, so sorry for the confusion I caused! I should have said we will be price comparing on the blog. Amazon will match many competitors prices but won’t “price match” for individuals. Hope that helps!! 🙂

Michelle Robinson:

I’m not sure if this is a silly question or not, but for amazon, target, and the pmd, what time do sales go live online? I’m planning on just ordering from bed that morning. But I don’t want things to be sold out. How can I find out if I need to be online at midnight, 5, or 6? Any tips for online Black Friday shoppers?

Reply
Corrine:

Hey Michelle! That is a really good question and I’ll do some more research to have a better answer for you and address it for everyone tomorrow in the BF map part 2!

The PMD!!! My order was canceled from the last deal you posted. So I really hope I can get one and it doesn’t sell out too fast. Pots and pans, Ray Ban aviators (men and women), large cute diaper bag, nice makeup brushes, cute pants to wear during pregnacy. I can’t ever find cute, affordable maternity jeans. Michael Kors watch (women’s).

I’ve been meaning to thank you for recommending the PMD Personal Micro! I love it! I have a 1 year old and 3 year old-so getting anywhere for a facial or microdermabrasion is tough. I love that I can use this at home whenever I dang well please. 🙂

Plus for a no frills microderm at my dermatologist’s office–it’s $60. So I know I’m saving money using this one at home!
