Black Friday is upon us, and that means it’s time to spend too much money on too many things, all of which we absolutely do not need. That’s what makes it fun!
Well for us nerds, we may be passively interested in TV’s and other goodies on sale, but right now is when we can quietly add a rent payment’s worth of merchandise to our overflowing collection of swag.
Say no more, for I come bearing the best Black Friday deals for nerds, geeks, cosplayers and even normal people. Without further ado, let’s dive right in!
Stores To Hit
There is a wide selection of places to choose from, but if you’re looking to start or expand your collection of knick knacks, merch, swag, or collectibles, these are the spots to go.
There is no disputing it; if you’re looking for something, bet that Amazon has it. They have an entire week of deals going on, so there is a lot to choose from, but once you filter it down to the specific niche you’re looking for, I guarantee they’ll have something that will pique your interest. Amazon’s deals are coming in going, so if you see something you like, jump on it before it’s gone.

Good ol’ Wal-Mart. Not to be outdone by Amazon, the also have a great selections of some goodies and, depending on what you’re looking for, may be significantly cheaper than the competition. For instance, if you collect DVD’s they are running a sale on movies from the past year, including Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, Deadpool, and Ghostbusters starting at $3.96.
They are also selling the PS4 Slim (1TB) for $199.99 (Deal begins 11/23)

3. GameStop / ThinkGeek
I’m going to save the best for last. GameStop and it’s subsidiary, ThinkGeek, will undoubtedly have great deals, and I say will because as of this writing, only GameStop has leaked a catalog; nothing from ThinkGeek…yet.
What has leaked, however, is worth taking note of, like this free Xbox 360 with mail-in rebate.
But enough about stores, onto the deals!
