Now that Black Friday is only a week away, each of the major retailers have had the opportunity to lay out their game plan for the biggest shopping spectacle of the year.

Consumers who are looking for a Kindle Fire are in luck, as a number of stores have packaged gift cards alongside this season's most popular tablets. While price drops are rare for the tablet, shoppers who look to spend a chunk of their bank account savings at a single place will likely welcome the bargains. Let's take a look at the deals.
