Black Friday has earned itself a bad reputation these last few years, but don't believe everything you hear.
While it's true that huge deals on electronics, must-have toys, and other big-ticket items can drive people crazy, usually they remember to line up and shop in an orderly fashion. If you feel like joining the crowds this year, here are some great deals to look out for:
Of course America's premiere big box store has some pretty good deals this year.
Among the door crashers, don't pass up the Nintendo Switch for $300, or that nice 4K TV.
These curved TVs are also getting pretty popular. Plus, you can pick up any extra cables or speakers you need.
Get good savings on a new laptop or tablet.
$10 Blu-rays make cheap gifts for the whole family.
$199 is the cheapest price you'll find for a PS4 game console this year.
