Things to keep in mind about Black Friday

As Black Friday is nearly upon us and the deals associated with such a major shopping holiday weekend continue to encroach more and more upon the Thursday feast, I wanted to share some general wisdom I’ve gathered in hunting for deals over the past several Black Friday-Cyber Monday weekends.

Update: Chase Pay: 10x at Best Buy up to $400 per card, not targeted

Update: This offer is not targeted and should work for 10x per card on up to $400 in purchases. See screen shots below.

20% off small appliances & other kitchen @ Best Buy

Discover is offering 20% off  regularly priced “small appliances” at Best Buy with coupon code DISCOVER20NOW or SAVEONSMALLSNOW. I have “small appliances” in quotation marks because the code works on a number of items that aren’t necessarily small appliances — it seems to apply to kitchen items that aren’t major appliances (i.e. pots & pans, robotic vacuums (not Roomba), and some kegerators). Some items become pretty good deals with the code. The Discover code terms state that you must…
