The published glossy Black Friday Ads of brick and mortar stores are analyzed separately in the “Digest” post. This Situation Room mega-post is updated manually, the “Latest Update” date is when it was last updated, so if something sells out or ends, there’s no automated way to remove it until I get to it.

The expired offers are removed from this post. In previous years I moved them to the end of the post for reference, however, it made the posts even more messy to read, and messy to edit…

RO TIP: if this page looks too long and chaotic, reduce the text size to get a more skimmable/scannable bird’s eye view…

To keep the entries readable, free shipping is assumed unless otherwise indicated (with the exception of Amazon which has free shipping for Prime members or with orders of $49+ (or $25+ in books) for non-members)…

I just price-checked every single entry in this “Situation Room” and removed the expired ones. It has been renamed “Cyber Monday” and after that it will be renamed “Holiday Shopping”. Because time won’t stand still… I proclaim today to be “Cider Sunday”, in preparation for “Cyber Monday”… To make it more readable, I moved all the explainer paragraphs at the bottom of the page, since this has been on top of the page for many days, so most people probably read them already…
