Chances are if you’re reading this you’re like us – you have absolutely no desire to get in the car and fight the crowds and all their nasty germs today on Black Friday. There are a bunch of sites posting specific Black Friday deals and sales however we were unable to find a concise list of online retailers that are offering the best sales overall. (We could tell you about a toaster that’s on sale for $10 but if you’re not specifically toaster shopping that doesn’t help you now does it?) So based on hours of surfing and totally unscientific research, here is our top five list of online stores that are offering the best deals and sales this Black Friday:
1) Amazon Black Friday Page
You have to give it to Amazon – the are motivated. While some sites don’t even list a Black Friday sale on their home page (shudder) Amazon is all about the Black Friday today. There are tons of deals on toys and electronics to be found, with some price drops bordering on the insane. If you’re into Blu-Ray Amazon is also offering three discs for the price of two, and last we checked had the Transformers (Two-Disc Special Edition + BD Live) [Blu-ray] edition for only $9.99!

2) Wal-Mart : Shop Electronics Special Buys!
While Wal-Mart seemed to focus on in-store deals this year, they have some amazing prices to be found on their online Black Friday page. Cameras and HD televisions seem to be the best buys on Wal-mart.
3) MacMall 3 Day Apple Black Friday Sale
While there are some decent prices to be found at some online stores for 1st gen iTouch iPods, MacMall wins hands down for having the best prices overall on the entire iPod line. If you’re looking for an Apple product this Black Friday, check MacMall first.
4) Circuit City Black Friday
Despite rumors Circuit City isn’t down yet, and they have some fantastic deals overall on electronics, cameras, and televisions. They also offer a nifty store pickup option, so you could feasibly place an order today to reserve your item, and then pick it up in-store tomorrow when there are fewer people in-store.
5) Buy.com Black Friday Specials
We’ll never, EVER forget the Buy.com “Check us out” commercial. It’s one of the simplest and funniest ads in recent years and regardless of if you love it or hate it, it sticks with you (sniff sniff). This year Buy.com has some really nice prices on electronic toys overall, so…check them out! (Commercial after the jump.)
