If you want to be a Door Buster – you can head on over to Bestbuy tonight, Thanksgiving night, where they will start handing out tickets at 10:00 PM. Doors open at 12 am on Friday (tomorrow, or really tonight). You can purchase most of the Black Friday items online or in store. (Why are people still waiting on long lines?) Newegg.com is a genius of a website offering great Black Friday deals, and it’s solely online, so if you are a fast clicker you can really save yourself some money. There are certain reasons why so many want to get in on the action first thing Black Friday. They are nervous that the item might sell out fast or that the price might go back to normal on Cyber Monday. We grabbed some top-rated products that are on sale Black Friday from Best Buy and newegg.com and will compare these items on Cyber Monday.

We want to know if the same electronic products have a better deal on Black Friday or Cyber Monday. On Cyber Monday we will post the same products and their prices. Last year, our CEO thought long and hard about a new personal computer. Settling on a Lenovo in mid-November, she bought one on Black Friday. A great deal…except the price was dropped further on Cyber Monday. Lesson learned. Happy Thanksgiving and happy shopping!
