It’s already Black Friday at Amazon

Amazon is another online retailer that isn’t worrying about the traditional distinction that Black Friday is for brick and mortar stores – they are having their own Black Friday Sale online and as a matter of fact it has started already! Some tech bargains that I saw:

They are apparently rotating the deals, so it may well be worth checking in from time to time to see what is new.

Toshiba Black Friday and Cyber Monday laptop computer bargains

The distinction between Black Friday and Cyber Monday for online retailers is blurring as evidenced by my annual email from Toshiba Direct which lists laptop bargains for both days, although they are strictly an online retailer while Black Friday was traditionally for those hardy folks who want to wait out in the cold on the day after Thanksgiving for the doors to open at a brick & mortar store.

In any case, as I have mentioned previously, I am a satisfied owner of a Toshiba laptop, so if you are looking for one you won’t go wrong if you take advantage of one of the Toshiba deals:

Black Friday (11/28/08)

Save on Black Friday with coupon code ACCESS20 – Take 20% off all Toshiba genuine accessories – 11.28.08 Only!

Black Friday Exclusive: Take an unbelievable 30% off Satellite laptops

Cyber Monday (12/01/08)

Toshiba pays your sales tax with the purchase of a Satellite or Qosmio laptop priced at $499 or more on 12.1.08 only!

Take $10 off $50+ or $20 off $100+ orders! Includes Satellite and Qosmio laptops and accessories. Use coupon code BF1020 at checkout. 11.29.08 – 12.1.08.

In particular, the 30% off a Satellite laptop on November 28 looks very good, but as always you might care to check your favorite online store in case they are doing even better on price.

Blu-ray bargains this holiday shopping season

Slow sales of Blu-ray players and movies will likely mean bargain pricing for the holiday shopping season:

“Blu-ray vendors and dealers are starting to realize that for Blu-ray to become the next DVD, they need to lower player prices in order to generate interest and build volumes,” said Steve Wilson, principal analyst at ABI, in a statement this week.

Wilson pointed out that tier-2 players and earlier models six to nine months old are already widely available for below $200, and that Amazon is selling a Samsung Blu-ray drive bundled with four disks in the same price range.

As previously reported in BetaNews, unit sales for Blu-ray drives look likely to be lower than expected for 2008, too. Kurt Scherf, principal analyst at Parks Associates, told BetaNews in late October that total sales for the year will decline at least 25% from the firm’s original projections to about 2.2 million players in the US and 4.3 million worldwide.

Wilson is referring to an Amazon sale (scheduled to end on Nov. 11) offering $100 off on the purchase of a Blu-ray player and four Warner movies. The Samsung player referred to is likely the well-regarded Samsung BD-P1500 1080p Blu-ray Player which with four selections from the already discounted full list of Warner Blu-ray movies will easily come in under $200.
