    I didn't find the prices there all that great. Several of the items linked back to a particular user of DealCatcher.com and were flat wrong and misleading. Example: the user, Omair, listed a 32GB USB Flash Drive on Buy.Com for 59.95 with free shipping. (All of this person's listing were with "free shipping"). If you clicked on the link for it, it took you to the ad for the item on Buy.Com's site, and guess what, it wasn't 59.99 with free shipping, it was 88.43 with 6.50 shipping.

    Similarly, the Dell system listed as the top deal of the day was a very low end system for $269. By the time you upgraded the OS, the installed software, added a monitor, etc you were running into major bucks and would still be stuck with a sub-par machine. (There was no way to upgrade the processoer beyond a 1.8GHz Celeron processor.) You can do better by getting a barebones system from TigerDirect/CompUSA and building from there.

    Sorry, man, but the usual rule of thumb still applies here: If it sounds too good to be true, it usually is.

    However, I did find a link to another site that will be sort of a clearing house for the "Black Friday" ads. I have had some pretty good luck with these ads the last couple of years. Btw, it looks like at least one of the chains, K-Mart, is starting the Black Friday thing starting this Sunday. Only goes to show how bad things are in the economy today.

    Funny how the same ad has two ways to view it. I didn't check not one retail item but was reading the "lifestyle change" type articles in uncertain times.

    So as far as prices go, I don't know...I didn't check. More consumption is not what I had in mind but thanks for the heads up. Thumbs Up

    The original and still best Black Friday site is http://www.blackfriday.info

    The various deal of the day sites have a definately decline in quality of goods lately. I've been a serious fan and purchaser from Woot and it's million clones for years, but lately I buy less and less, and not just due to cash constraints.
