Best Buy, Wal-Mart, other retailers prepare bargains for Black Friday sales

Black Friday shoppers who can afford big-ticket purchases will find big discounts after Thanksgiving. USA Today reports that Best Buy, Wal-Mart and others will slash prices on certain flat-panel, high-definition TVs this weekend. Some products will cost $500 to $1000 less than a year ago.

Best Buy unveiled its Thanksgiving Day circular on its website Tuesday. It includes a 50-inch plasma TV for $899. Also, winners of Best Buy’s Black Friday VIP contest, who submitted stories about how shopping the day after Thanksgiving is important to them, will be shuttled to stores in limos and given $1,000 gift cards.
