Not a lot of people look forward to Black Fridays. For one, it is held at 5 in the morning. For another, the deals are not just that big of a, well, deal – mostly it’s because they prices already marked down practically the whole year. It’s just not worth dragging your butt out of bed to wait in line on a freezing cold November morning.
But every now and then, some really cool stuff manages to squeak by. Here are some of the "worth-freezing-your-ass-on-a-cold-November-morning" steals this Black Friday:
Acer Aspire One Netbook
This netbook (pictured above) has an 10"HD screen, a full size keyboard, a 1.33GHz Intel Atom Z520 CPU, 1GB of DDR2 667 SDRAM, a 160GB hard drive, and a 1.6" WXGA (1366 x 768) TFT display, and uses Intel’s integrated GMA 500 graphics solution, among other features. It operates on Linux and/or Windows XP. Office Max offers the Acer Aspire One Netbook for only $149.99. Seriously worth waking up at the crack of dawn.
Bing Gold Rush
Many people rushed to join Microsoft’s Bing cashback program – for the simple reason that you do get your money back. after buying stuff you were going to buy anyway, you get your money back: 3 percent now, 10 percent later one, until it adds. Come Black Friday, retailers like AT&T, eBay, Gap, Sears, and Walmart will be raising their cashback rates as high as 35 percent. Microsoft has not released the specifics yet, but if you’re shopping online, might as well start on Bing.
Fast Video Converter Pro
Fast Video Converter Pro allows you to convert videos among different video formats, convert multiform videos to portable multimedia devices, and as it name suggests, is super fast. It also lets you convert by batch. Originally priced at $24.95, this handy gadget is available for free – no strings attached – as part of a Thanksgiving promo. You can actually avail of this baby right now, until November 30.
The MiFi 2200 is a 3G modem card that doubles as a Wi-Fi router. It can share connection with up to 5 users (be it a netbook, notebook, or iPhone), upload speed is approximately 1.1Mbps while download speed is approximately 0.5Mbps which is not too shabby. Originally priced a $99.99 with a 2-year Sprint contract, Best Buy is offering the MiFi 2200 free of that contract. This maybe an in-store only, so if you’re planning to get a hold of this gadget, a trip to your local Best Buy is in order.
Navigon for iPhone
As part of their Thanksgiving promo, Navigon’s MobileNavigator app is on sale for only $69.99. You can also get a hold of the new (in-app) Traffic Live feature for just $14.99 – that’s a total of $30 dollars savings.
There you have it – some of Black Friday’s best offerings. Now it’s up to you if you’ll rouse yourself out of bed for any of them.
