Prepare for Black Friday!
Written by: Tiffany Joyce
Black Friday, that traditional chaotic Christmas shopping day that qualifies as a quasi-holiday all on its own, is the Friday after Thanksgiving in the U.S. every year. This year, I want to help you to plan your gift-buying for the photographer in your life!
On-line, Amazon.com always holds a one-day, Black Friday sales event for the majority of their in-stock items. This event usually kicks off the Christmas season sales, though specifically on Black Friday there are deals that are not offered at any other time. Be sure to visit Amazon on 11/27 and take advantage of the discounts!
Find your local Ritz Camera, or visit them on-line. Take advantage of no sales tax and free shipping if ordering on-line, and find deep discounts if you visit your local store in person.
The big retailers, such as K-Mart (link is to specific Black Friday ad), Sears (also linked to specific Black Friday ad), Target, Costco, and Wal-Mart, often have a surprising amount of camera gear in-stock and on sale during Black Friday, whether you shop on-line or in person.
This list represents a good place to start when looking for Black Friday deals. In order to help you with your gift-buying, once retailers release their “official” Black Friday ads (probably within the next week or two), I will post an updated entry to point you all in the direction of great deals on specific cameras, lenses, and other photography equipment. So be sure to check back in with us!
