OK, I'm familiar with that one. . . . . . . I just thought it was something different because that's still 2 months away and it seemed like the OP was implying that it was coming soon.

As someone said, the day after Thanksgiving. I had never heard it either, growing up here (even having managed retail stores for 5 years, back in the day); I think it's a "Northern" expression that has made its way here. Growing up, we always just called it "the day after Thanksgiving".

I think the media really only started to pick up on the term and begin heavily using it a few years ago. I think that's more likely the reason we hear it so much now - not because it migrated from elsewhere.

As I recall, tv prices drop after Christmas for the SuperBowl season and again for March Madness and those deals are always better than Black Friday deals with the exception of door buster deals if you're lucky enough to get one. Black Friday now is more hype than deal imo - the pre Christmas deals have been better for the past two years at least. New tvs typically come out over the summer, so there are good summer deals to be had on last year's models.

I've been watching the prices on LCD LED HDTVs drop like rocks out a window and that's the TV to get imo. Prices in 2010 will be great for them as well as competition heats up.

I still have a small scar on the side of my head from Black Friday a few years back when I was working retail management... A customer knocked me into a support beam and cut my head open.... she didn't even stop to see what she had done.

Since then, I've refused to leave the house unless absolutely necessary on Black Friday.

But yes, the deals are pretty good

I bought my 37" Panasonic 1080 LCD tv last year with a Black Friday price, on the Wednesday before Thanksgiving. I found the exact same model at BestBuy.com on Wednesday. I printed off the webpage and took it to Sears which is where that tv was advertised in a Black Friday ad. I asked the salesman if he wanted my money that day or should I leave and order it from BestBuy.com. Sears gladly took my money that Wednesday afternoon and I got a great deal on my tv. Best Buy didn't have that model in their store so I couldn't buy it there.

So, if you find a good deal online, take a print out to a local store and see if they'll match the price. That way you can take your product home that day and not worry about damage/loss in shipping.

Sears told me they'll match prices from just about anywhere except Sam's Club and Costco.
