    As november is here already, hopefully we can build a list of promotions/discounts/coupons/giveaways and whatnot that companies will run on or throughout the Black Friday weekend.

    How about that?

    I think it's a good idea. Just let the discounts available to people outside the US as well.;)

    Well, I am going to try and get a $80 20" HP LCD monitor and $7 16GB PNY flash drive at Staples this year. Problem is they open at 5AM on Friday so I will be getting up pretty early. Hope the line isn't too long.

    how come? we've done this before...
    For sure! I'm not even in the US but we can always shop online... right? hehe!
    That's the idea, I remember software companies give out black friday discounts regardless of the country you order from. Specially when it's just a matter of licenses or product keys.

    Thanks to those who already contributed! ;)

    I'd like that. Some deals may not be available to people outside the US - we should try to note that when posting. Also so called "Black Friday" online deals sometimes start well in advance of the actual "day after Thanksgiving", so we need to keep our eyes open :)

    Thanks for posting that link Page42. Not because of the deals (I'm in the UK) but because of the comments by the public on the page when you scroll down a bit.

    A great laugh :D

    @ stapp, I see what you mean. Once you start reading, it's hard to stop. The comments didn't appear for me in Chrome (maybe due to AdBlock, and Ghostery?) but I could read them in IE9. :)

    Well, I got my 16GB flash drive for $7 and a 20" HP monitor for $80 at Staples. It opened at 5am. I got there at 7am and the place was dead. They still had a barrel bull of flash drives and quite a few of the monitors left.
