If you don’t yet have a Wii, head over to eCost on Black Friday, where they will be offering one each hour for $99.00. Beginning tomorrow at 8:00 a.m. EST, the 10 units come with a sensor bar, stand, WiiMote, Nunchuck and Wii Sports. Look for it in the Bargain Countdown section. We’re sure they will have other awesome deals so look around the site in case you miss out on the game system deal, but note that you will have to pay shipping.
Note: Because of the response, eCost will also be offering one Wii tonight from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m. for the same price, so eat quickly.

You know we are trying to get you the best Black Friday deals this week, but will it be worth the effort? BIGresearch did a study for the National Retail Federation and determined that there will be 5% less partaking this year. That still means 128 million others to contend with. The report also stated that 49 million know that they are going to cave this weekend, while 79 million shoppers need to be assured that they will get a good deal to battle the crowds.

Want beauty, practicality and the opportunity to get a free pair of chicBuds? Then read on, because we’ve got something you’ll want to hear…
On the beautiful side, chicBuds are detailed with Swarovski Crystals, and come in five delicious colors. On the practical side, they have a cool little clip that allows you to attach them to your bag (so they donʼt get lost,) or to your clothes when you’re at the gym (to keep them from flying around.) The cord also has five stopping points so you don’t have to deal with a cord that’s too long or too short and they are completely retractable so they don’t get tangled. They also come in a candy-like designer tin that will allow you to store both your iPod and the earbuds.
The best part, though, is where the whole “free” thing comes in. Purchase a pair of chicBuds from Dillard’s (online or in-store) or Fred Meyer (store only) before midnight PST on November 28th, and email your copy of your receipt along with your name and mailing address to firstname.lastname@example.org. The first 100 people to send in their information will get a free pair of chicBuds sent to them - how’s that for a giveaway? Be sure to check which stores carry them in your area - or just order them online and email in your receipt. The giveaway is only available to US residents only, you know how that goes.

Remember Motorola‘s 5-megapixel ZN5 cameraphone? It seems that T-Mobile REALLY wants you to have one: they just announced that beginning on Black Friday and going through Sunday they’ll be offering a $100 mail-in rebate on the $99 phone (with a two-year contract). Free is an amazing price considering you’re getting a 5-megapixel autofocus quad-band phone which includes a xenon flash and WiFi capability. We’re pretty sure these guys will fly off the shelves – at least for one weekend.
