Black Friday. It's the annual deal-frenzy day when Americans rouse themselves from their tryptophan-induced slumbers and brave the maddening crowds for their chance to clutch a supposedly discount big-screen TV or wi-fi-enabled waffle maker.

Though pundits and patrons have been sounding the death-knell for years, the shopping tradition persists. And there are some actual deals to be had if you know where to look. Here's a hand-picked list of some of the best.

Happy shopping and, oh yes, Thanksgiving too!
