Here we again. Black Friday (almost). The most coveted day for consumers and merchants alike, so popular and sought after that in the heat of the moment some of the silliest of events have occurred in the wake of competition that is getting the deal before its gone. 

Riots have broken in Walmart's over $10 toasters, folks have pitched tents in front of Best Buy 24 hours in advance of the doors opening, and live media has poked fun and recorded these events as if any of it is actually funny.

Like every other news outlet, magazine, blog, tip, whitepaper, water-cooler chat, and tips from your neighbor. We have listed our discoveries on some of the absolute best deals on Black Friday that you can purchase with bitcoin. However, we've put a spin on this. 

We're going to blow your mind and tell you how you can get another 30% off retail price.

The Top 10 Black Friday Bitcoin Buys

There were so many great deals this year it was difficult to pick the best, so we went one a couple factors. One being the cool factor and the other being accessibility.

Accessibility meaning that K-Mart may have a fabulous deal that beats all deal in the history of deals, but if it can't be purchased with bitcoin or acquired through a path beginning with bitcoin, it doesn't count. Cool just being what we thought was cool, so some of this is opinion, but the methods and the deals are absolute.

Uber discount in each item is the best case scenario, meaning it can vary between 5% or 10% depending on how much time you spend on getting the deal, but at these savings, it doesn't really matter.

We'll also explain exactly how to make these deals happen with each vendor and how to do that quickly and how avoid to any scams along the way, but first here's the top 10...

NOTE: All price reflect bitcoin price of $350 average (market value at press time).

 10  PlayStation Bundle - GameStop 0.72854285 XBT ($254.99)

GameStop is likely the most difficult deal to get, and why it's at number 10, but you can purchase the PlayStation 4 500GB bundle for $299.99 (regularly $349.99). GameStop kicks off its Black Friday event at 5 a.m. on Black Friday.

Bitcoin Price0.72854285 XBT

Gamestop is the hardest way to use bitcoin, but still possible and up to 15% in discounts, but due to the lower accessibility, this is the least of our favorites.

 9  Nikon CoolPix Camera - Target - 0.24042857 XBT ($99.99)

A great digital camera for less than $100 with the Nikon CoolPix L340 20-megapixel digital camera with 28x zoom and HD video for $99.99 (regularly $229.99).

You'll likely only be able to get an additional 10% or 15% discount on top of the discounts available from Target. Not one of the easiest ways to buy with bitcoin however, but it's an amazing discount worth the hassle.

 8  Xbox Bundle - Target - 0.55471528 XBT ($194.99)

Deal: Target's offering an Xbox One 500GB console with "Gears of War" digital download for $299.99 (regularly $349.99). Plus, you will also receive a free $60 Target gift card with purchase of the bundle. Target stores will offering this deal all day on Black Friday (while supplies last)

Target is more difficult to use bitcoin for purchasing, but possible. You'll likely only be able to get an additional 10% or 15% discount on top of the discounts available from Target, but you'll also get a $60 Target gift card, putting this one within reach. However good a value, that $60 is still going to be limited to Target and why this ends up at number 8.

 7  Beats Headphones - Walmart - 0.36214285 XBT ($126.75)

Beats Studio Headphones for $169 (regularly $299.95). In-store only, which makes it a bit more difficult to spend bitcoin, but doable. Wal-Mart is promising a 1-Hour Guarantee on these popular headphones and have advertised:

"If any of these items sell out within an hour of the Black Friday Event start time, we'll offer a limited opportunity purchase for that item, ensuring that it will be shipped to your store for you before Christmas."

Bitcoin Price0.36214285 XBT

You can get an additional 25% to 35% discount on top of the discounts available from Walmart. However, they are headphones (but they are beats) not in ultra-high demand with allot of fine print and along with the in-store only requirements, this deal out didn't make the top 5. It is without a doubt one of the top savings.

 6  Fire TV Stick - Amazon.com - 0.0714 XBT ($24.49)

Amazon's streaming video Fire TV Stick with voice remote is on sale for $34.99 (Normally $49.99) saves $15 (30%). This one is high on the list due to its accessibility and cool factor. It's a very cool product.

Wal-Mart is known for its blockbuster Black Friday deals, and this year won't disap... wait... there's a better deal on this one. The heavily advertised Wal-Mart deal is not the best deal. $198 at Wal-Mart is $178 at Amazon.com and what you can get the Samsung 32-inch UN32J4500.

Wal-Mart is offering free shipping and you can get it quicker if you find one in a store, but Amazon is also offering free shipping so unless you need this today, go with Amazon because it's an easier buy with bitcoin and you'll save even more.

This is a $1,299.00 camera on sale for $399.99, the Lytro B5-0035-NEW ILLUM Digital Camera Black. Due to the shear discount and bitcoin accessibility, it makes the second best deal on our list. However, it's just not that cool, not as cool as the number 1 anyway. Most people take photos with their phones anyway. It's still undeniably an amazing deal.

...and the number 1 Black Friday Bitcoin Buy is....

 1  Dell Laptop - Dell- 0.09597142 XBT ($33.59)

This is by far the easiest purchase simply because you can buy directly from Dell and use bitcoin directly at Dell. It wins on the cool factor because of that alone.

Pickup the Dell Venue 10 5000 Series tablet for $149 (regularly $427.15).

It's also one of the best values and a 64% discount on a brand new laptop. There's no additional discounts for bitcoin, but at this discount who cares and not having to take additional steps makes that another reason this is the best deal.

How To Get These Deals

In additional to these vendors discounts, to buy with bitcoin you'll need to take some additional steps. Some being easier than others. Obviously the easiest is Dell, you can pay with bitcoin directly. Target and GameStop are more difficult and Wal-Mart is about a medium.

☆ Hard: Target and GameStop
☆ Intermediate: Wal-Mart
☆ Easy: Amazon
 Brainless: Dell

Gift Card Trades

So how do you do it? In the case of GameStop, Target, and Walm-Mart you do this with gift card trades. You essentially trade bitcoins for gift cards and make your purchases.

GameStop:
Localbitcoins: https://localbitcoins.com/sell-bitcoins-online/usd/gift-card-code/
Paxful: https://paxful.com/sell-bitcoin
 Gyft: https://gyft.com/buy-gift-cards/
Bitwallet: http://www.bitwallet.cc/sell-bitcoin/
eGifter: https://www.egifter.com/giftcards/


The difficulty ranges in the discount. Between 5% and 15%. Being 15% or better searching Localbitcoins for a trade, or buying them outright on at Gyft or eGifter. What makes GameStop a bit harder than any of the others is that they are not always easy to get to. You'll want to spend the value of the card before releasing the escrow that you'll want to put your coin in when trading with this method. They are not always easy to find. Gyft is certainly the safest and quickest method earning a 5% discount quickly and easily from a reputable company.

★ Recommended method: Gyft

Target:
Localbitcoins: https://localbitcoins.com/sell-bitcoins-online/usd/gift-card-code/
Paxful: https://paxful.com/sell-bitcoin
 Gyft: https://gyft.com/buy-gift-cards/
Bitwallet: http://www.bitwallet.cc/sell-bitcoin/
eGifter: https://www.egifter.com/giftcards/


The difficulty ranges in the discount. Between 5% and 15% and like GameStop, getting to Target is not always as easy since sometimes the closest one is in a Shopping Mall. Same principal applies, make sure you either put your coins in escrow and spend the value before releasing or purchase from a reputable company. Notes: there are also many reputable companies on Localbitcoins as well that can be trusted, but do your homework and escrow is still recommended. These are also not always easy to find making Gyft or eGifter more appealing option.

★ Recommended method: Gyft

Wal-Mart: 
★ Localbitcoins: https://localbitcoins.com/sell-bitcoins-online/usd/walmart-gift-card-code/
Paxful: https://paxful.com/sell-bitcoin
Bitwallet: http://www.bitwallet.cc/sell-bitcoin/


Your best bet here will be Localbitcoins, These are a big seller on the platform, but be sure and follow the above mentioned steps and use escrow. Wal-Mart is everywhere, so it's easier to get to since just about everyone on earth knows where the closest Wal-Mart is.

★ Recommended method: Localbitcoins

Exchange Services 

You can easily use gift cards with Amazon as well, however there are specialized services, such as Purse that make this process much easier.

Amazon:
 Purse: https://purse.io/
Localbitcoins: https://localbitcoins.com/sell-bitcoins-online/usd/amazon-gift-card-code/
Paxful: https://paxful.com/sell-bitcoin
Gyft: https://gyft.com/buy-gift-cards/
Bitwallet: http://www.bitwallet.cc/sell-bitcoin/
eGifter: https://www.egifter.com/giftcards/

You can likely get a better deal on Localbitcoins, but Purse make this process the easiest. You simply place your offer (at any %) and wait for the purchase or make a purchase outright at 5%.

★ Recommended method: Purse

UPDATE: Purse just announced (10 AM CST) that today they will be offering a 10% outright discount above the normal 5%

Some of these methods are more desirable than others of course. Most of them allow online purchases and Amazon is exclusive to this, so you don't have to leave the house to get the deals. In some cases (such as Wal-Mart), however, you cannot get the deal online. Another tip with Wal-Mart is to make sure you get an eGift card that can be e-mailed to you if you need to go to the physical store. You can then print them out and they work perfectly. Pictures of physical cards do not work this way, so those will only be usable online.

Good luck and be safe out there!
