It wont be long before you gorge yourself on turkey and football, enjoying one of the biggest holidays of the year. Now it's time to prepare for your post-Thanksgiving consumerism in style, and if you're a sports fan Black Friday has a lot ot great deals to offer.
The old adage is that it's best to wait until right before the Super Bowl to buy a TV, but this year it seems to be all about the Black Friday sales. We're not close to the point where you'll need or want a 4K screen, so it might be worth braving the crowds if you're slightly underwhelmed by your less-than-giant television.
Some of the best deals are beginning on Thursday night, so if you're prepared to survive the crowds it's worth getting out there.
