Wal-Mart has Black Friday bargains early.
Hi-Def DVD player under $100

The day after Thanksgiving has been known as "Black Friday," in recognition of the theoretical time when retail stores moved from a loss ("in the red") to profit ("in the black") as Christmas shopping begins.

In recent years, the day has been notable for wacky low prices at many stores, with eager shoppers lining up in the cold and dark many hours before the stores open.

This year, retail giant Wal-Mart is jumping ahead of competitors with Black Friday-like bargains this Friday, starting at 8am.

Deals include a Sanyo 50-inch plasma TV for $998, a Toshiba HD DVD player for $98.87, HD DVDs for $14.96 each, and an Acer laptop for $348.

Dress warm, wear comfortable shoes, and try not to get crushed to death.
