I don’t know where most people would put Thanksgiving on a power ranking list of best holidays, but for me, it’s clearly a top two situation. The food is on point. There’s football on all day. Expectations for being productive are basically zero. It’s just all sorts of awesome, and oh by the way, it’s immediately followed by Black Friday, which is its own special kind of cool. This year, like everything else in our lives, Black Friday has changed a fair amount. It feels more like an extension of Cyber Monday. Fortunately, it still offers the same double-take deals, and for movie and TV fans, there are some truly incredible choices this year.
As such, we figured we’d round up some of our favorite deals we’ve spotted. Some would make great Christmas presents for a special person in your life, or even better, all would make great gifts for yourself right now. You’ve earned it maybe.
We’ve gone ahead and dropped in links to the various products, along with reasons why we’re into it and in some cases, marginally witty comments because we need approval and can’t help ourselves. If you see something you’re interested in, go check it out. We pick up a little referral money in the process, and you get something cool at an artificially low price. To quote Clue, what could be more American than that?
