Black Friday: OfficeMax's ad leaked
Deals include a $149 netbook and $49 digital camera.
Halloween isn’t even here yet, but one of the first big Black Friday sales ads has already been leaked: the circular for OfficeMax.
The best deals listed for one of the biggest shopping days of the year, the day after Thanksgiving, include an Acer Aspire netbook with Intel Atom processor, 10-inch screen and Windows XP for $149, half off its regular price of $300.

The same ad shows an Olympus X905 10 MP digital camera for $49. That camera is now on sale at OfficeMax for $99, marked down from $149.
The circular was posted on the GottaDeal.com Black Friday site, one of the top deal sites to feature leaked ads. Some readers over on SlickDeals questioned whether the ad was a fake, since it included these decidedly non-office items. But most of the ad’s items could be found on OfficeMax’s site.
GottaDeal owner Brad Olson says shoppers in his site’s forums were also excited about "As Seen on TV" items such as the $4.99 Slap Chop food chopper (regularly $19.99) and the $4.99 Snuggie (sold elsewhere for $14.99).
Is this the year of the Snuggie, with one under every tree? Let’s hope not.
We’ll help you plot your holiday shopping strategy by posting some of the bigger Black Friday sales deals as these ads are leaked.
