Hot Ticket Items for Black Friday and Cyber Monday 2011

Posted on 11/14/2011

Black Friday is usually the holiday season's busiest day for sales and shoppers. A whopping 200 million shoppers visited stores last year, spending $10.69 billion. They spend billions more in the following days including on Cyber Monday. Wondering what customers will be clamoring for this year? Here are some of the hot ticket items shoppers will be racing to the shelves to score.

3D TVs While TVs are always a hot item on Black Friday and Cyber Monday, this year that may expand to 3D TVs. They’ve been on the market for a while now so stores can start lowering prices enough to make them attractive to main stream shoppers. According to Consumer Reports, Walmart is bundling a 47-inch LG passive 3D TV with an LG 3D Blu-ray Player and 3D glasses, all for $799.

Bargain basement Black Friday prices always seem to strike laptops with some basic models going for as little as $299 in the past. But this year some experts are predicting that price to go even lower-- $199 for a simple model with around 3GB of memory and standard features like Wi-Fi and a modem.

Tablets and eReaders
According to the leaked Best Buy Black Friday ad, the discounted Asus Transformer 10.1” Wi-Fi Tablet is front-page worthy at its sale price of $249.99. Go a few pages in and you’ll see two more tablets featured and a 7” eReader marked down to $69.99.

App-Controlled Vehicles

App-controlled vehicles are sure to show up on many holiday wish lists. These techno-toys meld cool features like streaming video and night vision with the fun of a live-action toy. Availability may be limited in stores so items like these may be best purchased online.

Pillow Pets
After flying off the shelves last year, pillow pets are back in stock and returning to wish lists again for 2011. According to CVS will have them marked down to $12.99 for the big day. Plus there’s an opportunity to snag a free gift card with a qualifying purchase. Deals like that make leaving your warm bed a little easier.
