Black Friday is the day after Thanksgiving. Black refers to ink color. Most retailers don't show a profit for the year until this day after Thanksgiving. It is also a time for great bargains. Cyber Monday is the Monday following Black Friday.

We’re searching for the best Black Friday deals everywhere--including deals other stores are planning--so we can meet or beat their prices and bring them to you even earlier. These limited-supply offers will go quickly but we’ll add new ones throughout the day, every day this week, so you can skip the long lines and still save a bundle. Link to Specials
