Traditionally the biggest shopping day of the year and the start of the holiday gift-buying season, on Black Friday retailers often deeply discount big ticket items like electronics to tempt customers to spend their hard-earned dollars in their stores. 

The average shopper will spend $588.90 on gifts for other people this year, according to a survey conducted by the National Retail Federation, a retail trade association.
