Black Friday tech deals

Culture
It's Thursday, November 24th, 2011. I'm (Bridgette Cary on female.com?) and it's time to get Loaded. In this special Thanksgiving edition of Loaded, we wanted to take time to reflect on what's important. Black Friday gadget sales. Actually, there's no need to wait for Black Friday anymore. Online retailers had sales going on now. Amazon has Black Friday deals all week and there's a thing called Lightning deals which tells you to come back at a certain time to see the discounted price. Target.com and Walmart.com also have online sales going on before the big post-Turkey rush and if you're in need of an Apple gadget, their secret Black Friday store discount has been leaked. Looks like they'll knock 100 bucks off the Macbook Air, Macbook Pro and iMac. the iPad 2 will start at $458 knocking off between 40 to $60 depending on what model you get. Also the iPod Touch will be discounted starting at $178 and they're only knocking off about 10 bucks on the Nano. If you want a (Nook?) Touch. The Barnes & Noble updated touch (e-integrator?) is knocked down to $79 on Friday. It's a $20 price droop for their touchscreen and if a Smartphone is on your wish list, Amazon is selling some of the season's top Smartphones for just a penny with free 2 day shipping but the catch is you have to enter in a new 2 year contract with a new carrier. You can just upgrade with your existing carrier. (Some?) on sale for 1 cent include the Motorola Droid Razr at Verizon which is normally $300, the Samsung Galaxy S II Epic normally $200 at Sprint and the Blackberry Torch normally $100 at AT&T. And remember to keep that phone charged because some apps can help you in the crunch during the rush. The Black Friday App by Dealnews updates the list of what's on sale at major retailers and TGI Black Friday will do the same and refresh with door buster deals in real time and if you see something on sale but you're not sure how good of a sale it is, get out the bar code scanner to print and compare. Use something like Shop Savvy, Amazon Price Check or Google Shopper and while you're waiting online, use a location app to check in. Often checking in to a store will get you a bonus depending on the app. Shopcake, Foursquare and Facebook all could hold a surprise for checking in and if the line is really long, then also let up a coupon app like coupon (sharebud?) that might display in additional discount. Major retailers will often scan the coupon right off the phone screen. And for those of you tuning in from a place that doesn't celebrate Thanksgiving, you really should have meant the holiday (sense?) around food and shopping. I'm (Bridgette Cary for female.com?) and you've just been loaded.
