Retailers are preparing their big Black Friday deals and Wal-Mart and Best Buy are starting early with special holiday sales this weekend.
Wal-Mart is running a two-day sale on electronics November 6-7. While they don’t have any of their freshly stocked eReaders on the shelves, they are offering a $50 iTunes gift card for $35, a great deal for people who like to buy eBook apps.
The Best Buy sale is running November 5-6 on various electronics including Gateway laptops and the HTC Droid, an Android-based phone that can run Android-based eReaders apps such as Nook and Border’s app.
When retailers kick off the holiday season, we expect to see iPads and eReaders on special Black Friday sales. Amazon hasn’t said which products will be on sale that day, but it may be the only day of the year that Amazon will discount their new Kindles.
