If you’re thinking of braving the elements in search of those fabled deals this Black Friday, here’s a friendly reminder: Don’t.
Luckily, retailers have begun to catch on to the fact that there must be a better way than the annual stampede, with many offering deals before and after Thanksgiving.
However, even sifting through those can be a bit of a headache — Amazon alone lists over 5,700 Black Friday week deals.
We’ve whittled that down to 5 that you might actually be interested in purchasing, plus one gay super-sale:
List Price: $599.99
Sale Price: $379.99
You Save: $220 (37%)
