Remains of the Turkey: Black Friday deals
The turkey’s been eaten, the excess cranberries are firmly ensconced in a Tupperware box, the pumpkin pie is being digested, and another successful Thanksgiving holiday is in the books. And so now comes another American tradition, post-holiday sales! Every year we get pelted with announcements from companies that are celebrating the holiday by cutting prices or running special deals. Even if you’re not in the U.S. or don’t honor the orgy of consumerism that is Black Friday, you might find something of interest in the deals that follow.
