Aside from all of the questions about bad behavior during america's consumption binge, we want to look at where the deals are right now. And this question, if you haven't hit the mall or the web, are you missing out? Abc's linzie janis is on that angle at a best buy in manhattan. Good morning, linzie. This best buy has been open since 6:00 p.M. On thanksgiving day, with crowds clamoring for hot-ticket items like this sony ps-4, the x-box one here. And the ipad air, that you can save $60 on. Retailers are calling this their super bowl, with 140 million americans expected to hit the stores. I'm in. Reporter: This morning, retailers are tallying up meganumbers for those megadeals. Walmart's calling it the most successful black friday in its history. The gigantic chain saying it processed more than 10 million transactions at its registers between 6:00 and 10:00 p.M. On thanksgiving day. Add to that, so much traffic, its website temporarily crashed. BIG SELLERS, TVs AND TABLETS. 2 MILLION HDTVs AND 1.4 MILLION Tablets on the first night. But the big headline for most retailers, online is a winner. As many of us engaged in a little couch commerce between turkey and pie. It's not just cyber monday. It's gray thursday, as well. We have a double-chance to get online. Reporter: In the morning hours of thanksgiving day, traffic and sales on target.Com was among the highest the company has ever seen in a single day. More than doubling last year's online sales. The ipad air, large-screen tvs, nintendo 3ds. And zoomer, the robot dog, selling out. Overall, sales were up 20% on thanksgiving day versus last year, with more than $1 billion spent. But there's good news for those of us who still haven't taken part in the frenzy. Fear not if you didn't manage to get out this weekend. Next weekend, there will be an after-black friday sale just as good. Reporter: And cyber monday has started early.
