Black Friday is a cultural phenomenon in which consumers take part in the thrill of the deal.

This year, the mania is more intense than ever.

Black Friday deals have been leaked two weeks early and posted on Facebook -- all to get you in the mood to buy.

"Good Morning America" correspondent Becky Worley appeared on the show this morning to tell you where to get the best deals.

Becky's two favorite Black Friday deal-searching websites include: Bfads and BlackFriday.net.

Holiday Gadgets

The retailers have to guess almost a year early how many televisions to order. If they overbuy, you get the deals.

Walmart: Emerson 32 inch LCD HD TV - regular price $328, sale price $198

Target: Westinghouse 40 inch LCD TV - regular price $549, sale price $298

But the deep discounts this year will be on some of the biggest sets:

Best Buy: 50 inch Panasonic plasma - regular price $999 - after Thanksgiving $699

Sears: 55 inch Samsung LED/LCD is selling for almost $1,000 off

Remember it's not just on the big-ticket items like TVs where deals can be found.

Retailers are spending loads of money to get you in their stores and spending, so they're going to do everything they can, slashing prices to make sure you leave with a shopping bag or two.
