Prepare For Black Friday 2010 Based On Our Black Friday 2009 Observations

Black Friday 2010 is on November 26th, but you should already make a mark in your calendar on October 30th, if you are serious about getting the best Black Friday 2010 deals.
Update:
Black Friday 2010 Deals are already here. Do not miss the best deals of the season and visit our Black Friday Hub for the latest Black Friday Ads, Deals and Sales.

We have covered the Black Friday 2009 deals in great detail last year and I hope you have benefited from it and scored some great deals.
What we have seen is that retailers offered in many cases better deals the weeks before Black Friday than on the actual Black Friday day.

Sears and Kmart kicked off the Black Friday sales on Saturday October 29th 2009. On November 2nd Walmart rolled back already prices on 100 toys and on the 4th Walmart announced their first round of hot Black Friday deals for the weekend of November 7th including a $298 Laptop and the Xbox 360 Arcade Console $199 with $100 Walmart Gift Card.
Amazon moved against the Walmart offers and matched them saving you from having to go down to the mall.
Best Buy got into the Black Friday Sales game around the same time pushing down the bargain laptop price to $249.
The Black Friday deal wheel turned again and again on each weekend until the Thanksgiving week was reached. Amazon has taken over the Thanksgiving week and made it a Black Friday Sales Week and Walmart built up the excitement for their in-store only Black Friday deals.

An important point to make is that lots of the special Black Friday deals including door buster deals are available already online on Thanksgiving Day at some retailers. Best Buy for instance made most of the Black Friday Doorbuster deals available online on Thanksgiving Day.

Walmart is the only large retailer that has several real Black Friday deals that are only available in-stores on the actual Black Friday. In 2009 Walmart offered for instance a $198 Laptop and a $59 GPS.

Only for low-end electronics it makes sense to wait it out until Black Friday, but for video game consoles, hot toys and medium to high-end consumer electronics and computers it makes sense take a deal when you see it. Especially with hot toys you run into the risk that they are sold out getting close to Black Friday and the Holidays, like it happened with the Mattel Mindflex.

In 2009 Walmart and Amazon had several small price wars that I expect to happen more often in 2010. In October you could get new holiday book releases for under $10 because of this battle for online sales domination.
We are continuing to report about the best deals on gadgets, video games, toys and electronics over the year in our Shopping Tips section. Our Black Friday 2010 news will go into high gear some when in October.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
