So what's hot this year?
Well, Black Friday 2011 may go down as the year of the tablet.
"This is going to be the hot item for Christmas," says Jason Shaw with Sam's Club while holding an iPad2. "We've got it on sale for under $500."
But the best deal may be Amazon's new kindle fire.
"Under $200 for a 7 inch tablet is a great value," explains Shaw.
Best Buy is also getting in on the cheap tablet trend. They're offering a 7 inch Acer for under $200 as well.
As usual -- there are a lot of great TV deals for Black Friday 2011.
Best Buy is offering a 42 inch Sharp LCD for only $199. Walmart has a 40 inch Emerson for less than $250. And Sam's Club features a 51 inch Samsung plasma for just under $500.
"A 51 inch screen for less than $500 is a better deal that what you would have got for a 42 inch last year."
And finally -- cell phones are going to be another hot item this year. But don't expect to see any deals on the hottest phone -- the iPhone 4s. But keep in mind any phone Amazon sells except the iPhone is available for just a penny.
Also Sam's club is making the Samsung Galaxy s2 available for less than a buck.
"This is normally a $148 phone," says Shaw. "But for the day after thanksgiving this is going to be 96 cents."
So gadget lovers get ready. There are a lot of great tech deals this Black Friday to enjoy.
