I have created this spreadsheet the past couple of years to help with my Black Friday shopping, I have found it very useful and I hope you will as well. Essentially, it is a spreadsheet that lists all the major Black Friday store ads in a format that can be sorted by store, product, price, etc. Use the drop down arrows at the top of the columns to sort and/or filter the data.

This is a work in progress and more ad information will be added as it becomes available.....

Thanks to all for the offers to help, I really appreciate it.

I know I for one have appreciated this spreadsheet in years past and I was hoping that it would show up again this year. Thanks a ton! Is there a way that people like me could send you a couple bucks through PayPal as a thank you for your time and effort?

Awesome. I also appreciate the effort. If this could be a google spreadsheet, allowing us to subscribe to an rss feed of changes, it would be awesome. If thats too much trouble, I understand though.

Should be able to attach now? great spreadsheet, ive asked the mods for a sticky.

Great effort...this was godsent last year.....hope BF discounts step up soon!

Thanks for the Excel, you did a wonderful job. Is this the complete or are you going to update more?

thank you. Has to be the easiest way to sort through different deals at different stores and make my decision where to purchase the items on my list.

Thanks Buddy

Any free software I can download to read the xls sheets?

Thx, it is useful for all.

Excellent Work. Thanks!!

Thanks for the filtering!

As a suggestion, could the OP import the xls into google spreadsheet and "Publish it as Web Page" ? It'll be much easier for us to view.

Excellent spreadsheet. Beggars can't be choosy but, do we get updates?

You pm a mod and ask nicely.

thanks Man. I used the similar sheet last year. It was very useful. Thanks again for your efforts.

All I can say is WOW! Thanks for all that work, and yeah if there were a way we could get updates (like with google apps) that would be even better!

Awesome! I remember using one like this last year. Thanks!

Thanks so much for the effort. Let us know if there's anyway we can help to update!

Thanks. As a long time FWer, I find this spreadsheet very useful when sorting through tons of BF sales


Thank you again this year!!

Thanks for all your hard work. Even though I did not do any Black Friday shopping last year, this really helped me decide if it was worth it for me to get up early and fight the crowds. So, it helps even those who chose not take advantage of any BF deals. Who knows, maybe I'll find a BF deal that'll make me fight the crowds this year.

Open Office dot org will let you open the file for free.

Thanks for your hard work OP

Thanks a lot.

Thanks a lot! I too didn't buy anything last time but this file did help me sift through and decide....
