It’s a Shopper’s Favorite Time of Year, With Black Friday Deals Galore

Black Friday

Black Friday


Hark how the deals, sweet silver deals, all seem to say, throw money away. (I tried… yikes.)

Once the ghouls and spiderwebs of Halloween start being taken down to usher in Thanksgiving, the itchy fingers of shoppers start to itch even more. Enjoy the silky-smooth feel of that fresh $20 you just pulled from the ATM, because you’re about to hand it over for the best gaming deals of the year.



Taking a broad approach to making bank this holiday season, the online retailer started handing out deals at the beginning of November. At this point, it’s really just a crap-shoot to see what goodies may get prices slashed on Black Friday and Cyber Monday, so keep an eye on the things you’ve been watching all year and pray to the internet gods that you’ll get a discount in a few days.

And if don’t mind our shameless self-plug here… if you find an ad on our website that’s from Amazon, and go there to buy it in the same browser session, we’ll get a piece of the pie! We’d be eternally grateful if you help keep the Fresh Mana flowing. No hard feelings if you shop elsewhere.

While this is only skimming the surface of the deals about to drop this weekend, it gives you a rough estimate of what the sales will be. Most of the items mentioned, like the Xbox and PS4 bundles, can be found at multiple retailers for the same price. If you can’t find it at GameStop, I’ll bet you can find it elsewhere, and vice versa. Do you see any great deals out there floating around that you’re aiming for? Because let’s be honest, there’s almost nothing more satisfying than getting home with a shiny new toy, unwrapping it, tossing the instruction manual aside and going to town on it. Be careful with the crowds, and be kind to one another – it’s not the end of the world if the item you want runs out! Good luck, and may the discounts be ever in your favor.
