Black Friday deals you can't pass up
HOUSTON (KTRK) -- We are just hours away from the busiest shopping day of the year -- with many stores opening Thanksgiving night. There are so many deals and it's really competitive, so we found the best of the best bargains.
You could spend a lot of time scouring the ads or the Internet looking for the best deals, but instead of doing all the research, one local super shopper has done all the work so you can get in, get out and save big.
Paul Ivanovsky makes his living finding the best bargains on his website called Iheartthemart.com
"There are so many deals out there and it's so hard to keep track of where everything is," Ivanovsky said.
So this year, Ivanovsky created a spread sheet of Black Friday deals.
First up the ProScan DVD player from Sears. The regular price is $29.99, but on Black Friday it's just under $10.
"It's not a name brand but still it's a DVD player for $9.99," Ivanovsky said.
If you would rather pick up a Blu-Ray player...
"Walmart has a great deal on a LG Blu-Ray player. It's normally $90, it's going to be $38 on Black Friday," Ivanovsky said.
If you are in the market for a new laptop, Office Max has a Toshiba Satellite 15-inch laptop, regularly $579, on sale for $379. That's $200 off.
"They also run a program where you can trade in your old laptop and get another $200 off, so you can end up getting this laptop for $179, sweet deal," Ivanovsky said.
Over at Target, the Nook Simple Touch eReader retails for $99 but on Thursday evening, it will be $49.
At Toys R Us, Ivanovsky found a great deal on a set of Transformers for $19.99. That's more than 50 percent off.
And at Walmart, the Imaginext Space Shuttle will be $20, half off the normal price.
And one of the best Black Friday deals is this iPad 2. At Apple it's $428, but at Walmart, it's $399, plus you get a $75 gift card with your purchase.
Another great deal is at Sears. It's for a Toshiba 50-inch TV that retails for $889 but is a door buster deal for $299.
"You are camping if you want that one," Ivanovsky said.
And Ivanovsky says don't forget you still have time to layaway at Walmart then price match those items on Black Friday.
Ivanovsky has set up a wish list window on his website where you can input whatever it is you want and he will find the best possible price. He will do the research and email you back his results.
You can price match at certain stores but not all will be price matching Black Friday deals. Before you shop, visit the stores' websites or talk to managers about their price match policy.
