Why wait until Friday to get the good deals? "Black Friday deals start now, " says the online retail giant Amazon in an email a recent email to customers.
Competing with brick and mortar giants such a Walmart, this season Amazon is not only again offering free shipping but also free 30-day returns, low price guarantees, and other specials on selected items.
For example, compare Amazon's deal on a TCL 32-Inch HDTV with Walmart's 32-inch Seiki. Not only is the Amazon special $40 cheaper but it comes with a two-year warranty (versus Walmart's one year warranty), one day free shipping (as well as free shipping on returns), and a price guarantee. PLUS Customers who find a lower price online or find that Amazon has lowered its price within 14 days after the shipping date can contact Amazon and get refunded the difference.
And For you Mom Bloggers who want to try video blogging (vlog), check out the Flip MinoHD Video Camera (Brushed Metal, 2nd Generation) for $129 - that's $100 off the regular retail price of $229! (Not to mention the $30 savings over Walmart)
