Though not quite Black Friday and not quite Thanksgiving, Super Bowl Sunday shares many of the same traits as behemoth holiday weekends. After all, when else is it acceptable to watch TV all day while gorging on unhealthy but delicious eats? For many, Super Bowl Sunday isn't about who wins; it's about the food, friendship and excitement of getting together.
The National Retail Federation estimates Americans will spend $14.1 billion this Super Bowl weekend. Though these numbers are high, it is also a great weekend to score tons of discounts on TVs, food, clothing, and collectibles.
