Okay everyone, we’re going to handle the after Christmas sales a bit different at GamerTell. Instead of having a post for each of the major stores with ads out for the after Christmas 2012 shopping season, I’m combining the Best Buy, Target and Toys R Us ads into one big post. There’ll be a nice, big list for each store showing their best deals and promotions so you can check through all of them really quick and decide if you want to head out tomorrow to redeem gift cards or exchange what you got for something you really want.
We’ll go alphabetically. So, let’s start the after Christmas sales browsing with Best Buy.
