Black Friday is no mere sale, people -- it's a battle. A foe to be vanquished. A war to be won. Don't be content with stores' garden-variety Black Friday prices; unleash your tools and know-how to make good deals even better. Cry havoc, and let slip the dogs of discounts!

Wait, you've got no tools? No know-how? (No dogs?) Step into our parlor. In this episode of The Cheapskate Show, we're all about winning Black Friday, starting with the early sales happening right now. Don't miss this one.

We also have thoughts regarding T-Mobile's new streaming service (which starts at just $10 a month) and Netflix's latest price hike (which pushes the top-tier subscription to a hefty $18 a month). Plus, we learned something new about Verizon: The carrier's been holding out on a surprisingly affordable plan option.
