Spend Thanksgiving Shopping These Early Black Friday Gaming Deals
This piece was written by the Cracked Shop to tell you about products that are being sold there.
Not that anyone is particularly grateful for the circumstances under which it's necessary, but how awesome is it that you're socially and possibly legally prohibited from going home for Thanksgiving? This was not the year to get stuck next to your conspiracy theorist uncle, are we right? Instead, express your patriotism with a nice turkey breast (you can buy them individually, you know) and those most American pastimes: shopping and gaming! We're releasing some Black Friday gaming deals early since everyone else is breaking tradition and we didn't want to be the weird ones, so spend Thanksgiving racking up the savings instead of increasingly lengthier explanations of sovereign citizenship. Just use code BFSAVE20 to save an extra 20% off all of these deals.
