On Black Friday retailers are offering spectacular deals to lure shoppers into their stores as early as possible. These deals are called doorbusters. These deals are usually only available in very limited quantities and therefore chances of getting one are slim.
CNN has published a critical report on this practice today, citing retail experts who say this is a sleazy practice. I agree, but I assume most consumers know this by now. Black Friday deal hunting in the mall is a game or a sport if you will.

To "win" this game you have to get up in the middle of the night and stand in the cold (not at Walmart, they are open). If retailers had plenty of stock it would also take the fun out of the annual Black Friday deal hunt. If you actually get lucky, you can brag about your $600 50-inch Plasma HDTV to your friends and co-workers.

If you are not into the Black Friday doorbuster game then I recommend staying home and shopping online. Plenty of deals will be available from Black Friday through Cyber Monday.
