Like Best Buy and The Source, Amazon Canada and Newegg offering up lots of tech items for their early Black Friday sales, whilst accessories are being discounted at Prime Cable.

Unfortunately, the flooding in British Columbia will cause significant delays with some shipments originating from the west coast, as will the current backlog in worldwide shipping, so you should consider buying early. But it appears that Black Friday shopping on the east coast is acceptable, so most imports from American retailers like Amazon.com and Sharper Image should be fine.

By the way, if you’re looking for Apple gift cards, you should note that a PC Optimum offer is available at select, participating Real Canadian Superstores until November 24th, 2021; You can get 5000 bonus points per $50 Gift Card purchase, up to a limit of 10 gift cards.

Comparison Shopping Time

Newegg Canadaicon, Best Buy Canada, Indigo Books and Staples Canada have decided to have sales events of their own in response to Amazon’s two-day Prime Day event so you will have ample opportunity to do some comparison shopping starting at Midnight EST.

You won’t find much music and film-related items at Staples Canada, other than headphones and some other music accessories. But Newegg Canada and Best Buy Canada do offer home audio and home theatre components and accessories. And if you’re looking for Apple products you may want to check The Source out.

Indigo Books will also be discounting their book and tech items for their Plum members by up to 40% until Midnight on Wednesday, so you may want to check them out as well.

But you’ll need to wait until Boxing Day itself for deep discounts at Amazon U.k and Sheet Music Plus if you were planning on importing music, sheet music, DVDs and Blu-rays from “across the pond”, although you could still browse those shops to see if they have discounts on certain products today.

Year-end deals can also be found in the United States at Amazon.com and Barnes and Noble, the later primarily in their CD & Vinyl and Movies & TV departments. And if you’re looking for collectibles, like figurines and other memorabilia, Entertainment Earth is having an After Christmas Sale.
