It’s time to peek through another Black Friday 2012 ad scan. This time, we’re looking at the Sam’s Club Black Friday ad. It’s not as laden with deals as some of the other ads we’ve seen so far, but then it’s also only four pages and this is one of those member’s only stores. Sam’s Club is going to open at 7am on November 23, 2012, but people don’t have to wait until Black Friday to shop. The items in the sale ad will also be available on the Sam’s Club website starting at 10pm CST on November 21, 2012. If you shop online instead for one of the ad items, you get free standard shipping.
Let’s start with the video game systems that will be on sale. The big three will all be reduced. The cheapest is the Wii, which will be $89 for the system with a Wii Remote plus, nunchuk, sensor bar and necessary cords. This bundle is cheap, but doesn’t appear to include any games, so keep that in mind. The median priced bundle is the $199 4GB Xbox 360 Kinect bundle that includes an Xbox 360, the Kinect, Kinect Disneyland Adventures, Kinect Adventures, one month of Xbox Live Gold, one month of Epix and one month of Hulu Plus. Finally, the console selection closes out with the 250GB PS3 inFamous Collection bundle that gives you the inFamous Collection, Uncharted, two Dualshock 3 controllers, one month of PlayStation Plus and a PS3.
Sam’s Club will also have a few other electronics deals that may interest gamers. Since they’re pretty diverse, I’m just going to go ahead and list them here.
