Appliances for $3? A 40-inch HDTV for $298?
Yes, it's a Black Friday sale. Eager online sales watchdogs have spotted these and other deals that will appear in Target's upcoming ads for Black Friday, the traditional sale-filled day that marks the beginning of the holiday shopping season, held the day after Thanksgiving.
Some of the pricing is aggressive.
The new Target ad offers a 40-inch Westinghouse HDTV – with higher resolution – for only $39 more. Bfads, a Black Friday sale watchdog, called in one of the hotter sales items it had seen in the ad.
As it did last year, Target is offering a 46-inch Apex HDTV for $449, a free $10 Target card for shoppers who spend at least $100 that day, and a number of small appliances for $3. For example: a Chefmate 2-Slice sandwich-maker will sell for $3. So will a Chefmate 5-speed hand mixer.
Some prices are better this year than last. In 2009, Target sold a TomTom GPS system for $97. This Black Friday, a TomTom will only set you back $79. (Suggested retail price: $189.)
