Black Friday 2010: The Aftermath

Black Friday – that special day in November when deals on everything and anything abound. My Black Friday adventure this year, of course, was computers/electronics-oriented. Here’s a list of my shopping spoils.

Best Buy (believe it or not, this big box store actually does have some good deals from time to time)

  • Western Digital Caviar Black 1TB 7200 RPM hard drive, retail package (most likely a WD1001FALS in the box) – $59.99

Fry’s Electronics

  • Antec EarthWatts 750W – $65 – $30 rebate = $35
  • Samsung 2494LW 23.6” monitor – $149.99
  • Asus 24X DVD burner, $29.99 – $25 rebate = $4.99
  • Zalman Z7 Plus ATX computer case, $48.00 – $40 rebate = $8 (!)

The WD Caviar Black deal was quite good, especially considering the fact that it’s at Best Buy and a boxed retail version. Fry’s had some unbelievably good deals this year – where else are you going to get a 750W name brand PSU for that amount? Or a DVD burner for $4.99? And a name brand mid-tower computer case for $8 whopping dollars? Simply amazing.

Of course, those rebates are a pain to fill out, but as long as nothing goes wrong I’ll get my money back in due time.
