'Tis the season for Black Friday deals! The biggest shopping event of the year isn't until next week, of course, but some of the big box 2010 ads have been "leaked," which only builds anticipation all the more. Wal-Mart's Black Friday circular went public on Saturday, and there's a whole slew of discounts on toys, clothes, TVs, and electronics.
The list is long and not everything is a good value, but we'll help you navigate all the deals with our top 10 picks for holiday gifts.
Some deals will be available beginning at midnight on November 26; the more juicer deals (on TVs, electronics, DVDs, etc.) will be available from 5 a.m. to 11 a.m.
1. 32-inch Samsung 720P 60HZ LCD HDTV, $328 (Original price: $379): Wal-Mart will be putting a variety of TVs on sale -- many of them less expensive than this one -- but in terms of size and value, this one may just be your best bet.
2. Magnavox Wi-Fi Blu-ray player, $68 (Original price: $118): The perfect gift for the Netflix-obsessed person on your list.
3. 8GB iPod Touch, $225 (Original price: $225): The price is pretty standard, but the bonus here is that you get a $50 Wal-Mart gift card.
