Best Deals for Black Friday 2010

Studio 5 Contributor and technology expert, Jessica Foust, shares her strategy for finding the best Black Friday deals.

Preparation is key to getting what you want this Black Friday. Many websites post Black Friday ads as soon as they are leaked. There are also apps you can download to your phone with the same info. If the deal doesn’t make you excited, wait for a better deal. Many deals will be matched or beaten later in the year. Make sure to get to store early because many deals are offered in limited supplies.
