Tis the season, as they say. When you really start to think about it, though, tis the season for what, exactly? Is it the season for numerous loving (and sometimes, slightly judgmental) encounters with loved ones? Or is it the season for short work weeks and good o' fashioned home cooked meals? Maybe it's the season for sports because between the start of College Basketball, College Football Bowl and Playoffs games, the NFL post season, and the unpredictable drama of the NBA regular season there's more then enough athletic action to feed the unrelenting testosterone-filled males across the country in the midst of their winter bulk. For real though, did y'all see Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook's heated exchange of pre-fade wolf tickets at last night's game?

No matter what your theory is, each one sounds equally great, but we still haven't touched on one thing that the holiday season is definitely for: gift -giving, and hand-in-hand with that, shopping for deals. Black Friday, Cyber Monday, semi-annual Sales, end-of-the-year sales, are all going on right now. There are plenty of us who will take part in a glorious meal with family members today, watch the New York Giants and the Redskins fight tooth and nail to get out of the bottom of the NFC East conference in tonight's NFL game, and then, tomorrow, turn around and start throwing elbows at the nearest Wal-Mart in hopes to secure the best deal on a flat screen TV.

All in all, we can't say that we blame you, because after all, many of us are after that same TV. But we will say that there is a smarter way to go about this, and it starts with having a master plan. A master plan of the best Black Friday deals that is so that you can cut through the crowded department stores and over-merchandised e-commerce websites and find the perfect deal in half the time, with half the number of elbows thrown if you went about it the traditional way.

So whether you are looking for tech upgrades or surfing the web for the biggest discounts and promo codes, we got you with this list. Peep game y'all and of course, happy holidays (Black Friday).
