Black Friday Twitter Accounts

These are the accounts to follow for Black Friday deals on Twitter. If you’re looking for the most popular deals, the most obscure, or the most recent, following these accounts will have you covered.

@BlackFriday is the basic Black Friday Twitter account. It lists deals almost every hour, from retailers like Amazon, Best Buy and even Seven Eleven. There are deals on macs, ereaders, free shipping offers, Blu-Ray players, and binoculars – all within the last few hours. If you only follow one Black Friday Twitter account, this is it.

@ThanksgivingAds will update Twitter users about the most recent Black Friday deals, but you have to visit their website to see them all.

@CheepTweet is a year-round deal finding Twitter account, but it is especially good for Black Friday deal hunters. You’ll likely have to check out their website to get at the latest deals, although they might be updating their Twitter account on the big day.

Corporate Twitter Accounts to Watch

These aren’t Black Friday deal-specific Twitter accounts, but if you’re interested in buying anything from these big-name stores on Friday, you’d best follow them on Twitter to be the first to hear about their deals.

@WalmartSpecials posts its daily specials along with Black Friday deals here. The giant everything-store has announced Black Friday deals on Twitter for video MP3 players for $29, 19″ LCD HDTVs for $98 and a GPS for $79.

@TJMaxx announced that fabled $100-off deal on iPads a few days ago via Twitter, and sold out in hours. Keep watching this account for other amazing Black Friday deals.

@BestBuy posts regularly, but there hasn’t been too much Black Friday activity on this account yet. Still, it’s one to watch for potential killer deals on electronics.

@Target has posted some pre-Black Friday deals on Twitter thus far, so watch this space for even more as the day draws closer.

@AmazonDeals posts deal-of-the-day type deals year-round, but has also tweeted Black Friday-only deals recently.

@AmazonKindle announced just 19 hours ago one of the best deals you’re likely to see this Black Friday season – $89 Kindle 2. While we’re not expecting any better Kindle deals than this you never know!

Hashtags to Follow

The following hashtags will be tracking different types of Black Friday deals on Twitter.

#blackfriday is the number-one Black Friday hashtag on Twitter. It is currently a Promoted Trend by Target, but it will likely remain popular until Friday’s over. You’ll find fantastic deals by following the conversation around this hashtag.

If you’re looking for Kindle-specific deals, you can follow the hashtags #kindle, #ereader, #amazon, and #kindle3.

And finally, following the conversation around #walmart could lead you to some rather surprising deals from the giant superstore.

Good luck, and happy shopping!
