    I usually use http://forums.gottadeal.com/ for my Black Friday stuff. They're really good about posting stuff as soon as possible. Last year I did everything online and found really good deals. Year before that I used their site to plan my Walmart trip.

    I would suggest searching Amazon, ebay and craigslist first. Undoubtedly, there will be major retailers with specials, but they might not be discounting the way you would expect. Go Pro is having a major issue supplying the new models and many retailers are not getting their orders filled. My company sells them and we've been out for over a month.

    Aren't there a lot of complaints about the latest model (the Hero 3)? Short battery life, freezing, failure to detect the SD card, etc. Reading some of the Amazon reviews it sounds like some people have had luck by downloading a firmware update but others haven't.

    I was in the market for one but I'm going to hold off until those issues get resolved.

    I've been using Gottadeal for several years. They are very good for researching pre-Black Friday sales.


    As for the OP....

    You might consider waiting until CyberMonday........the Monday after Black Friday. There are tons of great deals online and most all of them come with free shipping too.
