The Black Friday 2011 ads continue to be highly searched for by consumers across the United States. Among those offering some early deals are real world stores Wal-Mart and Target, as well as online retailer Amazon with its Black Friday sales deals.
The Amazon Black Friday deals right now are part of a countdown prior to the Black Friday 2011 sales week. The official shopping holiday arrives the day after Thanksgiving, and many consumers camp out at stores waiting to get in for "doorbuster" deals or the early sales. However, with Amazon.com they are offering deals online 24/7 to those who prefer to stay in and shop.
Right now, the Amazon Black Friday countdown involves major deals on electronics. Included in the sales items are digital cameras, Blu-ray players, digital picture frames, computer memory sticks, laptops, TVs (like the Haier 32-inch model pictured), and video games. The web retailer knows that offering these deals could attract customers to do the bulk of their shopping online rather than in stores. They're hoping that helps boost business despite news of a sluggish economy and the fact many consumers may be trying to cut back.
Amazon (AMZN) stock is currently selling for under $200 a share. However, Forbes writer Trefis Team notes in his article that the stock could climb to $230 a share and higher. He notes the Kindle Fire and the cloud computing module Amazon is employing will aid in the rise in prices, which is great news for investorsÂ—another aspect which will help is Amazon continuing to offer Black Friday 2011 sales deals online. As more shoppers continue to look to Amazon for their shopping needs, the online retailer will only become more reputable and more valued.
Will you be doing more of your holiday shopping online at websites like Amazon.com, or do you prefer shopping Black Friday deals in stores?
