Unfortunately, the best item in the Dell Black Friday sale, the Dell Inspiron 14z for $299.99 is not featured in the sale; it will be available during Dell's Black Friday sale which starts at 12:01am EST on Black Friday.

The sale is live now and runs through tomorrow, Saturday, November 17. Prices are valid both online and in-store, however online shoppers can take advantage of Best Buy's running promotion of "Free Shipping on Everything" with no minimum purchase.
UPDATE: Updated Facebook comments from Walmart now say that only Event 3 sale items will be eligible for the price-adjustment. The representatives aren't clarifying further for why this is, but even if it works for Event 3 items, that's better than nothing.
Some interesting news just came out by way of the Walmart Facebook page. A shopper asked if items on Layaway can be price-adjusted to their Black Friday prices to which Walmart answered:
If you have [any] item on Layaway and would like to receive the reduced price during our Black Friday sale the item(s) would need to be deleted from the Layaway account and added back to receive the event price (or price matched whichever is lower). Keep in mind layaway will be closed until 9am on Friday (11/23). Event prices for items sold during our first two sales events at 8pm 11/22 and 10pm 11/22 are only available while supplies last so they may be sold out when the Layaway desk reopens.
Here's the big loophole: all of Walmart's Black Friday "events" are while supplies last and don't have a definitive end time.
The Walmart CSR seems to imply that with layaway being closed until 9am, the items from the first two events will be sold out and you won't be able to put them on layaway.
But what happens if you put the items on layaway now? Won't Walmart keep those items reserved? If so, shouldn't those items be guaranteed behind the counter should you want to pick them up on Black Friday?
But that's not all because Walmart's price-match policy is in full-effect on Black Friday! That means you can layaway products from competitor stores and price-match them during Black Friday â opening up a world of possibilities.
This is a developing story, remember the source for this information is a comment on the Walmart Facebook page, so take that for what it's worth.

Ikea's "Seize the Days" Black Friday weekend sale spans Friday through Sunday with only a couple items featured per sale. The best deal I saw was the Eat for Free! offer where if you eat at Ikea's in-store restaurant, you can deduct that cost off any home furnishing purchase over $100!
New York & Co seems to have gotten their sales backwards as their in-store sale starts Thanksgiving Day (opening times vary by store) and lasts until 2pm, while their online sale starts on Black Friday (again, no time given) until 2pm. I guess that's one way to differentiate yourself from the rest of the pack.
The ad itself only features a couple items as the majority of the pages are flip-book coupons for the daily blanket sales happening Monday, November 19 through Monday, November 26.
While this ad was sent over directly from Overstock, they did not provide us with an official start time. Also missing from the ad are prices: many of the top items have prices that are "too low to show."
We are not a fan of "to be announced" pricing and Overstock isn't the only one doing it - Best Buy has a page full of items that will be sold for a "Hot Price." While it creates the possibility that Overstock can set their prices at the last minute to undercut their competition, more often than not, TBA pricing is indicative of mediocre discounts.
