  • Looking for some of the hottest Black Friday sales? Look no further.
  • Many retailers, such as Best Buy Co Inc (NYSE: BBY) and Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. (NYSE: WMT) will begin their sales during Thanksgiving.
  • Retailers are looking for consumers to pickup their spending after an overall rough third quarter.

Over 200 million US shoppers will be looking for savings on Black Friday. In fact, Cyber Monday continues to expand in popularity with more and more retailers in Canada, the United Kingdom, and elsewhere participating in what used to be a US-centric event.

Many retailers, including Best Buy and Wal-Mart announced their sales will begin on Thanksgiving Thursday. Meanwhile, retailers like Kohl’s Corp. (NYSE: KSS) is already advertising hundreds of Black Friday deals that are available now.

Target Corp. (NYSE: TGT) has already began a 10 Days of Deals event but the company also detailed its Cyber Monday plans in a press release. Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ: AMZN) is also teasing clients with daily specials ahead of what it hopes to be an incredibly busy Cyber Monday.

Shares of Macy’s, Inc. (NYSE: M) collapsed following its disappointing third quarter earnings and troubled outlook. This might partially explain the company’s massive 56 pages of deals.

Consumers should also be aware that RetailMeNot Inc (NASDAQ: SALE) is in full holiday mode, advertising many specials that aren’t found elsewhere.

Restaurant chains are also getting in on the action. Buffalo Wild Wings (NASDAQ: BWLD) offered its e-mail subscribers a “blazin’ bonus” worth up to $100 when a consumer buys at least $25 in holiday gift cards to use on a future visit.

Blackfriday.com has consumers fully covered with a detailed list of what retailers are offering on sale.
