After a week of hints and leaks from various Black Friday websites, and grainy black-and-white scans of partial ads, we can now finally see Target's full color Black Friday ad flyer, courtesy the website BFAds.net.
It contains 32 pages of deals that begin 9 p.m. Thanksgiving night, an hour after Walmart and Sears open their doors.
At least Target gives shoppers an extra hour to finish their turkey and pumpkin pie.
But like those other stores, Target will stagger its Black Friday deals throughout the evening and early morning hours. So drink plenty of coffee.
Target's Hot Deals
Among the hottest deals at Target, according to the website BFAds.net:
-Westinghouse 50' LCD HDTV: $349
-Apex 32" LCD HDTV": $147
-Nikon Coolpix Digital Camera with 21x optical zoom (superior to digital zoom): $99
-Sony Playstation 3 bundle: $199
-Gateway 15" 4GB Laptop: $349

Pros and Cons
While Black Friday ad sites say Target's doorbuster deals this year are nowhere near as good as those at Walmart or Best Buy (where you will find cheaper laptops, for instance), Target traditionally has less of a crowd, and less pushing and shoving to get to the best deals.
As a result, many shoppers feel they have a better chance of finding doorbusters in stock at Target, compared with other stores.
As always, don't waste your money.
