A La Carte (Black Friday Edition)

A special edition of A La Carte today, one geared toward trying to find the best Black Friday deals. Here are a few that I’ve scrounged up already at some of the places I shop at (I love me a good deal…):

Amazon Gold Box: Nuvi Garmin GPS
Amazon’s Gold Box deal today is the Garmin nüvi 285W/285WT 4.3-Inch Widescreen Bluetooth Portable GPS Navigator with Traffic. It’s 48% off the retail price and just about $50 less than it was yesterday. Be sure to keep an eye on the Lightning Deals as well (on the same page).
Black Friday Music Sale
Amazon also has a lot of their music on sale today. There are plenty of all-day deals and a succession of Lightning Deals.
Black Friday @ Amazon
And finally, Amazon has a large list of Black Friday specials that you may want to look at. They range from DVDs and electronics to pots and pans. Again, some are all-day deals while others are Lightning Deals, available for only a short time. It’s probably worth checking in a couple of times over the day if you’re really hunting for bargains.
Deals @ Monergism Books
You can get 7% off at Monergism Books today if you spend over $25. Simply use the coupon code thanksgiving2009.
Black Friday @ Vision Video
Purchase $75 or more at Vision Video and save $25. Simply enter promotional code “BF4DAY” at step 4 of checkout and $25 will be deducted automatically. Vision Video has a huge variety of Christian DVDs.
Black Friday @ Reformation Heritage Books
RHB has quite a few good deals. They have cut prices on D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones by Iain Murray, George Whitefield by Arnold Dallimore, Respectable Sins by Jerry Bridges and Romans by R.C. Sproul (among others).
Black Friday @ CBD
CBD has specials spread throughout the site. Check “This Week’s Specials” at the top of the main page along with “Fab Friday” and “Red Hot Deals” in the middle of the page. You might also want to check out the “Current Promotions” button.
