CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - 9:10 Update
Walmart had said that they were going to wait until Midnight (PT) tonight to do their online sale but they've started now. They're rolling out a few items early mostly toys. Target is suppose to start at midnight so I won't be surprised if they start too.

Someone asked about desk top computers. There are two at Best Buy that look pretty good on sale. Check page 27 of their BF ad.
Every year Dell has some pretty remarkable deals to so make sure you check them out.
MAPS MAPS MAPS!!! If you are going to try and do the BF Thursday shopping in Target and Walmart you better know where they have stashed the stuff. To try and avoid some of the chaos they move the big things to sections that aren't used. Like putting the TV's in the maternity section. Because most stores are set up different, so to are the maps. So make sure you put in the zip code and find the exact store you'll be shopping at.

Apple Watches are tough to get a deal on because generally Apple sets the price. So if that's what you're after I suggest at least getting something for your purchase. Target IN STORE purchase Black Friday gets a $100 Target gift card, that you know you'll spend anyway, when you buy an Apple watch for $349. Page 3 of the BF ad.
Star Wars toys will be huge since the move comes out in mid-December. I like the Black Friday deal KMart has on the extendable "lightsaber." Because all kids need something to whack each other with on Christmas morning. Might as get them cheap at $4.99. In store, when doors open at 7PM Thursday.

Donna...I want a small hot tub
Dan DeRoos Wow...1st time I've seen this request. Let me look around.
Ok...my gut tells me that Home Depot will do some sort of % off, web purchases either Thursday, or over the weekend for Cyber Monday. I would keep my eye on this page, and see what happens.
Gina Monastero Deals on TV's?
Dan DeRoos Really depends on what you're looking for. Are you trying to upgrade to 4K which is sooooo much better than your HD. If that's the case Target will be selling an LG 49" 4K smart TV for about $500. Which is about the lowest I've seen so far for 4K. Page two of the BF ad.
If you're going for sheer size...Target will also have a 60" Samsung 1080 P for $700 and it is a SMART TV. Page 6. If I were you I would try to get online at MIDNIGHT Thursday (so late Wednesday night) And see if you can get it then.
