Valley Black Friday deal-hunters can get early start


The Swedish retailer is saving its biggest deals of the year for the epic shopping holiday. In fact, the entire holiday encompasses Friday, Saturday, Sunday and it ends on Monday, known as Cyber Monday.

Black Friday may have been initially American, but it has spread over the world in a matter of just a few years.

Indeed, when he first began the website about 12 years ago, he was more likely to get a cease-and-desist order from a retailer than any appreciation for putting their ads online.

But since you can save at Target well in advance of Cyber Monday, here's a look at some deals available at the mega United States retailer right now. Wal-Mart has not yet said when its in-store sales will start that day but many of its stores are already open 24 hours a day, including on Thanksgiving.

Best Buy has offered more than a dozen Black Friday jobs earlier this year, but this year also contributed to the quick access to hundreds of black Friday promotions from iPad Mini to 4K TV and Beats Studio 2 Wireless Headphones. But before they do that, here is a sneak peek at all the timings of Black Friday Sales and the companies which open on the day of sales.

Even though the trend seems to be ending, Black Friday shopping is not and will never be an excuse to leave one with bruises, sprained ankles, broken bones and concussions just because they took the last discounted smart TV. Surely you've noticed. As is normal in these parts immediately following Canadian Thanksgiving and Halloween is the sudden overnight arrival of Christmas items and decor in stores and on store shelves everywhere.

As can be seen in the video below, Ammar can reliably unlock his mother's iPhone X, so it wasn't just a one-off fluke. After the mother reregistered her face under different lighting, her son was no longer able to unlock her phone.

Also new this year, Target will be offering free shipping on holiday items. And so is the worst - Black Friday. Unfortunately, that means more work for consumers because not every sale you come across is worth your time. Additionally, nearly half (44 percent) revealed that they plan to camp out to get the best deals on laptops (22 percent), TVs (21 percent) and housewares (20 percent).

Tom Zimmer, 67, of Shamokin, was walking through the Susquehanna Valley Mall on Monday and vowed he will not be shopping on Thanksgiving, regardless of the deals stores offer. These products are then marked down and sold on Black Friday.

If you're shopping online use a credit card or use PayPal. You may even want to ask yourself if you really need the item.

The site is teasing that there will be plenty of GoPro cameras on sale on Cyber Monday, so if that's what you're looking for - watch that space. Check forums where people discuss retailers and customer experiences to ensure you don't get caught out.

Whatever method you prefer, it's best to lay out a battle plan and prepare early.

If you change your mind about something you buy, it's important that you know where you stand in the eyes of the law.
