Last week it was all about the pre-Black Friday sales, this week we're starting to find out a bit about what will be going on sale on Thanksgiving and the day after.

Today's runthrough includes Amazon, Kmart, Kohl's, Meijer and the Microsoft Store. If you don't have a copy of Destiny yet, make sure you check out some of the deals on that game listed below.


Not content to explode your wallet the day after Thanksgiving, Amazon is announcing rolling price drops the entire month in their Countdown to Black Friday deals. If you're looking for a price cut, you should just go ahead and bookmark this page and check back daily.

Today's video game related deals include Titanfall on PC for $10, a smattering of PlayStation 4 games for $24.99, including Killzone: Shadow Fall (this deal ends at 3 a.m. ET) and a surprise deal on Eve Online.


Dell has an amazing GTA 5, The Last of Us Remastered PS4 bundle among their Black Friday deals. You can check all of that out here.


Kmart is splitting its sales into Thanksgiving morning, Thanksgiving night, Black Friday deals and three-day sales just to make sure that everyone is thoroughly confused.

In gaming, the Thanksgiving night doorbuster deals (which run from 7 p.m. to 3 a.m.) include Kinect Sports Rivals, Ryse, Forza 5 and Dead Rising 3 for Xbox One for $29.99. You can also pick up Destiny, The Evil Within, Call of Duty Ghosts or Wolfenstein for $24.99 to $49.99 on PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4 and Xbox 360. Kmart will is also dropping the price on the Xbox One wireless headset, controller and play and charge kit and Xbox Live Gold by $10 each.

Black Friday morning doorbusters, which run from 6 a.m. until noon, include an Xbox 360 4GB for $129.99, a slew of Xbox 360 games priced dropped to $9.99,  including Grand Theft Auto 5 and Destiny.

The chain's three-day sale includes Titanfall for $14.99 on Xbox 360 and $19.99 on Xbox One, FIFA 15 or Madden 15 for $34.99 on PS3 or Xbox 360 and $39.99 on PS4 or Xbox One, a buy one, get one free deal on Skylanders Swap Force and Giants characters and $10 off Skylanders Swap Force Adventure Packs, Battle Packs and Triple Packs.


Kohl's Black Friday deals kick off at 6 p.m. on Thanksgiving. The store has an Xbox 360 4GB for $129.99, a deal that is valid only until 1 p.m. Friday. You can also pick up the Nintendo 3DS XL bundle with Mario Party Island Tour for $149.99 until 1 p.m. Friday and an Xbox One for $329.99 until 1 p.m. Friday. The store is also advertising 30 percent off video games, "select styles." Keep an eye out for a nice corduroy DS title with flared cuffs for me, if you go.


Meijer's deals aren't very great either with the deals running Friday only while supplies last.

The chain has select 3DS, PS3, Wii and Xbox 360 games on sale for $15 a pop, limit two per title. The circular shows that includes Grand Theft Auto 5, and a bunch of games very few people are likely interested in. You can also pick up the Nyko Power Kit plus for Xbox 360 or Xbox One for $9.99 and get $10 off a three month or one year Xbox Live Gold membership. The store also cut the price on Skylanders Trap Team and Disney Infinity 2 down to $49.99 and they're running a buy one get one half off for Skylanders and Disney Infinity character packs.

You can pick up the Atari Flashback 5, Sega Genesis, Intellivision or ColecoVision Classic game consoles for $29.99 each

Finally, Meijer is selling the Super Mario 3D World Deluxe Wii U console for $279.99 and includes a $30 customer coupon for later use.

Microsoft Store

The Microsoft Store is taking an interesting approach to revealing its Black Friday deals. They've listed everything they will be dropping the price on, but not what that sales price will be. One can only hope that the prices will appear sometimes before the sale kicks off at midnight on Thanksgiving.

Listed items currently include the Xbox One Limited Edition Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare bundle, Assassin's Creed Unity Xbox One bundle, Xbox 360 4GV Peggle 2 bundle. The store also has a ton of games listed including Sunset Overdrive, Forza Horizon 2 and Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor. But again, no idea what the sale price will be.
