Black Friday is just a day away, and retailers are releasing early promos to get a head start.

Best Buy, Wal-Mart, Target and RadioShack each have their own deals that they hope will be able to draw more shoppers their way, as retailers look to come out of Black Friday with hefty profits.

Best Buy

Best Buy is slashing $100 from the price of the iPad Air 2, which will make the price of the 16-GB version of the tablet only $399.99. In addition, the iPad mini 3 will have mark-downs of $75 off for every version.

The Panasonic 50-inch Class LED HDTV will be sold at Best Buy for only $199.99, which is less than half of the TV's original price of $549.99.

The Jawbone UP24 wristband will also be sold at Best Buy for only $79.99, from its regular price of $129.99.


At Wal-Mart, one of the best deals is the 16-GB, Wi-Fi version of the iPad mini. From its regular price of $219, Wal-Mart will be selling the tablet for only $199, and customers will also be receiving a gift card worth $30.

The Pill portable speaker from Beats by Dre will have its price halved to only $100 at Wal-Mart.

The PlayStation 4 will not be receiving a discount from its original price of $400. However, customers purchasing the gaming console will receive two free video game titles, namely The Last of Us: Remastered and Grand Theft Auto V.

DVDs and Blu-ray discs also receive massive discounts at Wal-Mart, with a selection including over 214 DVD titles for only $1.96 each and 113 Blu-ray titles for only $3.96 each.


One of Target's major deals is a bundle for the Xbox One that will include digital downloads of Assassin's Creed Unity and Black Flag. The package can be purchased for only $329.99, from the regular price of $399.99, with customers also receiving a gift card worth $50 upon purchase.

Another crowd drawer by Target is the GoPro Hero3+ Silver edition, which will have its original price of $299.99 decreased to $249.99. In addition, customers purchasing the adventure camera will get a gift card worth $50.


The Galaxy S5, Samsung flagship smartphone, will be available for zero down with financing by the carrier or completely free with a qualifying two-year contract. This represents $200 in savings, and for customers included in the first 50 people in line at any RadioShack store, they will also be given free touchscreen gloves.

While all these deals are great ones either as gifts to loved ones or for yourself, customers should remember that most of them are only valid while stocks last.
