Most people who watch television or use the Internet have probably heard of Black Friday by now. The phrase was originally used by retailers to indicate the day they became profitable for the year. (Their accounts were “in the black” instead of “in the red”.)

Less well known is that major chains publish the products and prices they plan to feature on that day months in advance. Search engines usually favor older sites which can make it a challenge to locate the deals for Black Friday 2008. Many Web sites are still showing specials from 2007 or prior years so be sure you’re viewing current information.  We’ve compiled the best sites below.

There are several established sites that are updated regularly. Major retailers provide these sites with sales information and dates in advance. While each of these may have the same information it is also possible some may differ.

Many of these sites claim to be “the official” Black Friday site or “the most popular”. Most offer mailing lists to automatically send you new sales as they get posted.
