With Black Friday right around the corner, it is time to decide on your game plan so you have a better chance of getting the best deals. Here are some best buys recommended by Bfads.net on sale during Black Friday. For all the details, check Bfads.net or the sales ads for the specific stores. I definitely recommend reading their buying guides for laptops, televisions, gaming systems, blu-ray players, digital cameras and more!

    I feel like I stole from Kohls this morning in the online BF sale. Besides getting free shipping, I got an additional 15% off the sale prices on things we actually need. So I got a $290 Hoover vacuum for $153, a $40 Toastmaster toaster oven for $19.54 (will be $9.54 after MIR), and a $30 Rival 5-qt. slow cooker for $17 (will be just $7 after MIR!).
