The month of November has just started and the biggest sale before Christmas Day in the US is about to start. Black Friday 2010 will be this coming November 26, 2010. Leading US retailers have this weekend thrown themselves into a frenzy of early holiday sales offers, three weeks before the traditional start of the US Christmas shopping season on “Black Friday” – the day after the Thanksgiving holiday.
Though the Black Friday is going to be on November 26, Walmart and Best Buy are having their early Black Friday sales this first weekend of November. Best Buy announced that they will have a pre-Black Friday sale which they call as the “Shop Early Save Big Event” which will take place on November 05 up to November 06. Featured items on the sale include the eMachines Laptop with 15.6? screen, AMD V-Series Processor, 2GB Memonry, 250GB Hard Drive, Windows 7 Home Premium (Model no. eME442-V133) which will be sold for $279.99. Aside from this one, Best Buy will also have some electronic products and video games included on the event. Items on sale can also be seen on Best Buy’s website since online shopping is also possible for this event.
Walmart, on the other hand, is also having a pre-Black Friday sale which will be held this November 06 up to November 07. This is what they call the “Amazing Walmart Electronics Event.” The sale starts at 8:00 AM and it will last until supplies are available. The sale includes different LCD TV’s from Vizio. It will also have a Compaq 15.6″ CQ6-109WM Laptop w/Intel Celeron Processor, 2GB RAM, 250GB Hard Drive, Windows 7 Home Premium for $288. Gaming consoles like PS3 are also included on the sale and a $50 iTunes Gift Cards for only $35.
This weekend has seen a particularly intense battle over consumer electronics, one of the most popular gift categories. Walmart, the largest US retailer, has launched a two-day sale with price cuts of more than 25 per cent on laptops, video games and high-definition televisions. Best Buy, the largest electronics retailer, has countered with a two-day sale. Amazon, the online retailer, started its offers last weekend but has thrown in a two-day electronics sale this weekend to match Best Buy and Walmart.
The only company that we’ve noticed that announced their official Black Friday 2010 deals is Sears. In fact, they already have an ad on their website sears.com. Tagged as “Black Friday Now!, a two-day doorbusters from Friday to Saturday up to Christmas Day”, the sale goes on every week from Friday to Saturday until the Christmas Day. From LCD TV, jackets, denims, craftsman, various toys for kids, to towels, boots, rings, they almost got everything on sale.
