TIPS on using this blog-post
Here are some tips to help you make the most of this on-going blog-post:
+ the blog-post text cannot be updated automatically when price or availability changes, the most accurate information can be found on the retailers' websites, but even there, their computer systems may not always be able to handle e-doorbusters and high-demand/low-availability cameras
+ the chances of errors/typos/confusions on this blog-post are higher because of the chaotic nature of Black Friday Madness, so be sure to double-check
+ Refurbished and Open-box items have their own sections in order to prevent confusion among the speed-readers
+ newly added items will appear at the top of each sub-section below, so you can quickly and easily scan for updates
+ sold-out items go at the end of each sub-section to make the pages easier to read and skim/scan...
