    Black Friday is just around the bend -- in less than 36 hours, many a deal hunter will be camping outside their prospective Wally Worlds searching for prey. Thankfully, we've eagled-up in advance and thrown together a few deals in the meantime that should cause a sparkle in at least a few eyes. (Just to be safe, we've also included links to each store's full line-up of deals.) So, join us after the break, read along and see if anything strikes your interest. What's to lose, really? A chance to miss out on a good deal, of course! Feel free to thank us later or let us know about anything else you spot in
    Deals and deals and deals

    Flipping through Best Buy's ad booklet, it seems that the store has a some great finds for gamers out there looking to snag a new console (and willing to wait in line two hours prior to 12am).

    Those vying for team Redmond can pick up a 250GB Xbox 360 Holiday bundle complete with a three month Live Gold card, headset, controller, Fable 3 and Halo Reach for a mere 200 bucks "after savings." Better yet, you can also grab a Kinect for $100 while you're at it. (P.S. If you're not so keen on leaving your house, that Holiday bundle will also be offered over at Newegg.)

    More into the DualShock 3-controlled side of things? How does a 160GB PS3 with the latest Ratchet & Clank, Little Big Planet 2 and 30 days of PlayStation Plus for 200 bucks sound? Pretty awesome, duh. You'll find this particular deal over at Best Buy and Walmart.

    Like your gaming to be more of the casual variety? Well then, if you casually head on over your local Walmart at 10pm on Thanksgiving night, you'll be able to snag yourself a Limited Edition Blue Wii complete with a matching Wiimote Motion Plus and Nunchuck -- all for just a single Benjamin.
    ..and more deals

    Hungering for a tasty Android Honeycomb tablet? ASUS's Transformer Prime may have just gone up for pre-order in North America, but the ol' 10.1-inch Transformer 16GB WiFi model will be on sale at Best Buy for a tempting $250, with its keyboard dock priced at $100.

    Moving right along, both Staples and Sprint (whose sale notably extends through the 27th) will offer the 7-inch BlackBerry PlayBook 16GB variant for a Kindle Fire-matching $200. Surely that's enough to quell the sting of its still-missing native email app.

    Apple is also getting on the discounted-fun with iPad 2's starting at just $458. In total, you'll be saving between $41-$61 dollars depending on which model you choose.

    On the e-reader side of things, Staples will add in a $25 gift card alongside the purchase of a Kindle with Offers at its regular $79 price, while Barnes and Noble will be happy to sell you its Nook Touch for the same.
    ...and even more deals!


    Alright, how about this scenario: you're a deal seeker, seeking a new smartphone. Simple right? Well, if you're okay with two-year contracts, you'll be pleased to know that there are loads of deals to be had on and around Friday.

    Walmart will be happy to give you a $100 gift card with any device you select, AT&T will offer all of its Windows Phone 7 wares for a single penny on Saturday the 26th and Amazon is already throwing a similar one-cent deal on a bevy of smartphones (from a variety of carriers), which lasts until Cyber Monday.

    It doesn't stop there, though. Sam's Club members can choose a Photon 4G, Droid Charge or AT&T's Galaxy S II for just 96 cents, while T-mobile will offer a variety of rebates and a "buy two get one free" deal on accessories until the 27th. Verizon will also sport some decent rebated discounts, but most notably, a special red HTC Droid Incredible 2 for free after a $50 mail-in rebate.
