Walmart set of pre Black Friday deals, dubbed the "Amazing Walmart Electronics Event." will be this weekend. Stores will open at 8AM local time. Online times have not yet been set. Included in that set of Black Friday deals is a Compaq 15.6" CQ6-109WM Laptop w/Intel Celeron Processor, 2GB RAM, 250GB Hard Drive, Windows 7 Home Premium for $288. Not a state of the art CPU, but still a nice bundle.
Best Buy's Pre Black Friday Deals to Beat WalMart by One Day
Best Buy's pre Black Friday deals will beat WalMart by one day, both in starting and concluding. The sale will run Friday and Saturday, rather than Saturday and Sunday. This sale, however, will be at stores only, based on the website info.
Best Buy's sale will include a similar laptop to WalMart's. It is an eMachines laptop, with AMD V-Series CPU, undercutting WalMart's price at $280, instead of $288. It's a Black Friday deal seemingly just as good as WalMart's, looking at the full specs of the laptop. Also, there will be two minimum per store.
Most of the items are one per customer, so shoppers need to be aware of that. Many are two minimum for each store, but some have more allocated. Take a look at their ad, and be prepared to line up for Black Friday deals, about three weeks early.
