The words “Black Friday” either send thrills or chills down your spine. Here at FunCheap we’re hoping for thrills. Read on below for a list of Black Friday deal meccas at the Big Box stores that you can either attack at midnight in the blistery cold or from the warm sanctity of your own home.

On Black Friday at Walmart, you’ll save even more on Black Friday specials with free shipping on thousands of in-stock items when you buy online. Two deals we’re looking at? A $99.96 Limited Edition Blue Wii Console and a “Buy any Smartphone and get $100 Walmart Gift Card” deal.
Thursday at 10pm – Friday all day | Free shipping with on-line purchase
– Oakland / Richmond / San Leandro/ Union City / Pleasanton / Mountain View and more.

Best Buy
Best Buy has always been a nightmare on Black Friday – with good reason. Their Bundle Deals can land you with a full gaming console plus a few games or an entire home theater for cheap. This year they’re rolling out their deals a week early to filter down the crowds, but wise folks may prefer to start shopping online Thanksgiving Day for exclusive deals and free shipping.

Ahh… Target. They’re always cheap, which makes Black Friday even better. Take $50 off a PS3 console, $250 off a Westinghouse 46″ HDTV, and receive a $50 Target gift card when you buy Beats By Dr. Dre headphones.
