Where to Get the Best Black Friday Deals

Shoppers, ready your elbows.

The post-Thanksgiving shopping extravaganza known as Black Friday is here, and despite today's tough times, chances are you will be confronted with sizeable crowds as you hunt for retail bargains: Up to 128 million people are expected to hit U.S. stores today and this weekend, according to the National Retail Federation.

Stores, meanwhile, are eagerly anticipating droves of holiday-minded shoppers by upping the ante on their traditional Black Friday discounts, both in their brick-and-mortar locations and online.

When it comes to sales, "this year is pretty strong compared to previous years," said John Vincent, founder of the Web site BlackFriday.info.

"With the current state of the economy, I think that the retailers are hurting, too," Vincent said. "They know shoppers are looking for bargains. They're trying to provide sales and really offer shoppers good products at great prices."

So where can you find those great prices? ABCNews.com consulted with Vincent, Michael Brim at bfads.net and Angela Johnson of yourcouponbuddy.com to find some of the best deals around today.

But first, buyer, beware: Many stores are opening before dawn today and if you wait too long, some of these discounted goods might sell out. Retailers also post many of their Black Friday deals online, but those, too, are typically up early in the morning and don't always last all day.

Here are some of the bargains we found:
