It's Monday, November 28th, 2011. I'm Mark (Laseya?) on Cnn.com, and it's time to get loaded. Black Friday, 2011, was reportedly a huge success. Com Score data says US consumers spent $860 on the post Thanksgiving shop extravaganza. Spending was 26% higher than last year, around 50 million consumers did their shopping over the web, which is a 35% increase over last year. Amazon came out on top, with Walmart, Best Buy, Target and Apple, following in that order. And as you know, the online deals are not done, my friends. No, Cyber Monday is happening right now, and those same big retailers have great deal offerings throughout the day. Amazon.com has their lightning deals, that you should keep tabs on. Best Buy still has great days, just don't expect to get you hands on the BlackBerry Playbook Tablets. They're pretty much sold out, and Verizon is offering 2 hot deals, the Motorola Zoom tablet for $199.00, knocking off $100, and the HTC Droid, incredible 2, is free, with it to your contract.
