It’s that time of year again! We devote a whole day to humility and gratitude, giving thanks for friends, family, and food. Then, almost without warning…BAM! Get out of the way, that fifty-dollar 150” flat screen is MINE! (Oh, don’t give me that! You know perfectly well that if a 150” flat screen was on sale for $50, you’d be all over that.) Yes, it’s Black Friday…Black Friday, awesome buys Black Friday! Someone should write a song about that. Anyway, there are some who look forward to the festivities of this day more so than the actual holiday it is they’re shopping for. If you’re a Black Friday participant, you know all too well that the coveted Door Buster ads don’t usually hit news stands until Thanksgiving Day. But why wait?! We have our ways of getting our hands on information of such value. I present to you, the Top 5 Black Friday Deals in Twin Falls. You’re welcome.

    We all know that Costco is awesome all year round, but the Black Friday deals are extra crazy awesome! How about getting $180 off of a 17.3” Dell laptop, or $250 off a 15.6” HP Blu-Ray laptop? Surprise your little ladies this Christmas with a Kid-Kraft Majestic Mansion doll house, and save $40. Need to work off all of the holiday meals? Get $200 off an Epic EL 1710 elliptical! And how about taking $400 off multi-stone round diamond earrings? I’m thinking yes! And speaking of jewelry, any guys out there want to pop the question to a special someone? Hit up Costco on Black Friday for a whopping $500 off a princess cut & round diamond round ring! Costco also has some great deals on desktop computers, furniture, clothing, and other electronics, so you don’t want to miss out! Doors open at 9am.

    Good golly gee, everyone LOVES Best Buy on Black Friday. Why? Because everyone wants the kick-A electronic deals on Black Friday, and everyone knows that Best Buy has them all. I’ll list a few: Spend $199.99 on a 42” Sharp HDTV, get the brand new “Harry Potter & the Deathly Hallows: Part 2” Blu-ray for $9.99 (the DVD is $6.99!), spend $199.99 PlayStation3, $79.99 on a 24” Dynex HDTV, a 50” Panasonic HDTV for $599.99, a $100 iTunes gift card for only $80, a $24.99 HP Deskjet all-in-one printer…the list goes on. Also, find 99-cent DVDs, and not just lame ones that nobody wants; we’re talking legit DVDs here! Blu-rays for $4.99 – also not the lame ones! “Inception,” anyone? “The Dark Knight?” I rest my case. Check out TV shows on DVD ranging in price from $8.99-18.99, and a $99.99 iPhone. Best Buy has got it going on, people. Hit this place up. Best Buy’s also been known to hand out some freebies or extra special coupons to people standing in line, so you may want to get their extra early. They have a 36-page Black Friday ad, so definitely worth a look-see. Doors open at midnight.
