Black Friday 2013 Deal Guide

This year The Nerd Filter has decided to composite a guide of all the sweet deals that fancy the inner nerd in all of us. Here’s a list of the Top 5 deals happening Friday Nov. 29th. Stay tuned for our Cyber Monday picks as well!

#5 Gamestop

The next-gen consoles are out and battling. However now is the time to get an Xbox 360 or a PS3 package for under 200 bucks. Plus both consoles are 250gb and come bundled with 2 games. Xbox is including Halo 4 and Tomb Raider while Playstation is including The Last Of Us and Batman Arkham Origins.


#4 Half Price Books

Doors will be opening up at 7am for an early bird special: the first 100 customers through the door will get a free tote bag with a $5 dollar gift card, except one lucky son of a gun will get a $100 dollar gift card! In addition there is a special 40% off coupon or 15bucks off 50 or more. That’s a whole lot of graphic novels!


#3 Target

The big doorbuster at Target this year is definitely a 50″ LED TV for only $229 bucks! I have never heard of this brand of TV before though–Element, but I kinda want to go out and see if I can get one of these bad boys. Target is opening up at 8pm on Thanksgiving day. Other notable items are select Blu Rays for $10 and select board games for $5.


#2 Staples

You don’t really think of Staples being a contender in Black Friday too much, but this year they have the goods. They have a 16gb Kindle Fire HD tablet for only $79 bucks! The Kindle is still the highest rated tablet for ebooks, and this deal is half off MSRP. Great for enjoying digital comic books.


#1 Toys R Us

The #1 spot goes to Toys R Us with their whopping 28 page ad. Toys R Us is opening at 5pm on Thanksgiving day, making it the earliest to open the day before. Tons of doorbusters on toys, buy 1 get 1 40% off on video games, and DVD’s and Blu Ray’s starting at $3.99. Also when you purchase 75 dollars or more you will receive a 10 dollar gift card!
