It started out in 2005 as a day of online shopping – from your desk at work – on the Monday following the Thanksgiving weekend. From then, it has grown from a day of hoping the boss doesn’t catch you as you sneak a bargain, to a full week or more of deals on TVs, computers, toys and tech.
Here are a few of the most popular deals from online and brick-and-mortar stores.
