Over 20,000 Black Friday Deals Expected For 2012

Black Friday 2012 is here and if last year was any indication, then we can expect a lot great deals and sales this year.

In 2011, a total of 17,062 Black Friday deals were advertised with the highest number on clothing and shoes, toys, home furnishings, garden tools, sports equipment and accessories and entertainment deals, in respective order.

Other Black Friday sales hitters were on electronics, automotive, video games, computers and health & beauty products.

While apparel had the most deals, the most popular is undoubtedly electronics, with most shoppers buying computers, video games and toys during the post-Thanksgiving shopping spree.

Last year's Black Friday also witnessed a 24.3% increase in online sales, that's why all major retailers are offering more deals online this year to shoppers.

Sears, Kmart and Macy's were among the top 3 stores which offered the most Black Friday deals last year. This 2012, other stores will definitely try to beat that.

Not only will they offer more deals, but most likely, longer periods - which could start as early as Thanksgiving Day until a day after Cyber Monday.

Coupon and deals website, Fat Wallet, from whom we got the facts above, is expecting that there will be over 20,000 Black Friday deals this 2012 - which includes both in-store and online sales promotions and product offerings.

Stay tuned as we give you more Black Friday 2012 information on upcoming deals, published flyers and sales in the coming days leading to the biggest shopping holiday in America.
