FYI – Black Friday Tech Deals

Posted in Did you Know? on November 26, 2009 by

Today is American Thanksgiving. Of course, that has nothing to do with technology. However, tomorrow is the unofficial American holiday – Black Friday. Black Friday, dating back to the 1960’s, is the most profitable shopping day for American retailers.
If you are looking for tech deals, keep your eyes on American websites. There are many chain companies that extend the deals into other countries, including Canada. It’s a great opportunity to get you hands on some tech toys – without paying full price!
Canadian websites such as Red Flag Deals provide inside information on many of the deals.
