Black Friday Shopping Guide for Rebels:
Cheap and Free Special 2014

By Gaurav & Brook Bhagat


Black Friday shopping

Do you have the heart of a revolutionary and the sharp eye of a bargain-hunter? Do you have a Che Guevara t-shirt, but feel like a sell-out wearing it to the mall? Is it possible to score big on Black Friday without becoming a materialistic pig and betraying your vision of peace, love and understanding for the world?

Yes, friend. If you want to protest the soulless market machine by not shopping on Black Friday, power to you. If you want to stick it to the corporate-political beast by spending your money at small businesses instead of feeding the larger predators, you have our solidarity. But what if you could find deals so sweet that taking advantage of them would actually hurt our capitalist overlords, and leave you with some awesome stuff as a side effect? If you like this last option the best, look no further. We have scoured the interwebs long and hard to find the good stuff so cheap (or free) that you can shop with your conscience and wallet intact.

Tell me about the free stuff first, you say? You got it. Some of these involve showing up first in line (“while supplies last”), so if you appreciate a good reason to leave a family gathering early, they could be just what you’re looking for. Others involve filling out rebate forms, so if you’re the type of person who can do a little paperwork and wait a couple weeks for the check, you’re in luck.

The next best thing to free, of course, is cheap. Here are some of the best bargains we’ve found so far:


Staples


Asus X205TA, 11.6" HD Laptop for $99.99 on page 1.
Nothing beats a deal like that but one must consider that it has only 2 GB RAM and anything less than 4 GB these days makes your computer run sluggish.


Walmart


There are a bunch of good deals this year. The one we like are:


Starting at 6 pm Thursday


Heat wave infrared tabletop console heater for $39 -- page 13

Men’s Herman survivors work boots for $29 -- page 18

525/800 thread count sheets for $25 -- page 20

Pyrex (glass food storage) 24 pc set for $19 -- page 23

Four burner gas grill with side burner for $99 -- page 25


Starting at 8 pm Thursday


Google Chromecast for $25 -- page 29


(It’s a dollar cheaper at Best Buy, but Walmart’s Savings Catcher might do the trick to get that back)

This year, Black Friday has been rolled back to Thanksgiving Thursday evening; by next year, the stores will have to throw in a turkey dinner, too. So, if you’re going to spend money, do it right: stick it to the man by shopping him right out of business!
