Black Friday is coming, Cyber Monday is close behind

For those of you out there that don’t know, Black Friday is the Friday that follows American Thanksgiving. It’s also the biggest retail shopping day of the year.

To compete for your bucks, retailers offer up mega sales to get you in the door. Online shops have followed suit and Cyber Monday has been gaining tremendous steam over the past few years. As we get closer to the big shopping days (yep – Canada’s starting to see some spillover on Black Friday sales) it’s time to start looking at where you’re going to get the biggest bang for your buck. If you know you want it, why not treat yo self?

Whether you’re shopping for Christmas presents, or getting a little something for yourself, here are some of the best resources for all those stocking stuff-ables:

Gizmodo’s Black Friday Guide – games, TVs, and pretty much any electronic you’d ever want

LifeHacker’s Black Friday – Want a knife set from K-Mart? Find out how much you’ll save’s Targeted Black Friday Deals – If Amazon doesn’t have it, it probably doesn’t exist.

Sears Black Friday – Get a stove. You know you want it.

As the Canadian dollar stay strong, many canucks are planning to head south of the border this year to capitalize on deals. Are you going to make the trip? If you can’t find it online, it just might be worth it. Bring your shin guards, helmets and credit cards — use the comment thread below to work out a carpool.
