The big "if" on Black Friday is, if you are lucky enough to buy one of the low inventory doorbuster deals. If you can then the deals are better on Black Friday. At least this has been true in the past. For proof look at our best Black Friday TV Deals list and best Cyber Monday TV Deals lists from 2012. The prices are much lower on Black Friday. We have seen two $97 32-inch LCD HDTV offers on Black Friday. The cheapest 32-inch TV on Cyber Monday was priced at $179.99. That is 100% more expensive. Of course, the issue was the low availability of these deals and that many of the best Black Friday deals are only available in stores.
What we learn from last year is that you should try to get the hot Black Friday deals on Thanksgiving Day and if you fail there is always Cyber Monday to shop. Just do not expect to see the extreme deals you will see on Black Friday.
Keep in mind that the Cyber Monday 2013 Sales already start as early as Saturday after Thanksgiving. Most of the Cyber Monday sales will start on Sunday.
