If you’re a devoted deal seeker, after you’ve finished stuffing your face with turkey on Thanksgiving, you’ll probably start packing up your camping gear and head out to your nearest big box store on Nov. 26 to nab some Black Friday treasures. But combing the ads the day before doesn’t leave you much time to formulate a plan of attack—that’s why you should give the free TGI Black Friday app for iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad, a look.

Formerly kept top secret, retailers have started leaking their Black Friday supplements weeks early in order to generate additional buzz. The TGI Black Friday app, powered by DealCatcher.com, compiles the ads for you and keeps tabs on any updates the merchants make. Within the app, you can see the best deals currently available and browse the newest uploaded advertisements.

If you see an item that piques your interest, you can tap “Shop Now,” and the app will quickly load the retailer’s website inline. While most of the deals presented in TGI Black Friday are only available that day, occasionally a deal is available earlier, so it’s worth a look. You can also see if the item is not already on sale, so you can determine if saving almost $10 on a pair of Old Navy leggings (currently $14.50, $5 on BF) is worth leaving your house in the dark of night. Items will be marked “Early Bird” in the upper corner if the store requires you to be there before a certain hour.

TGI Black Friday offers an email sharing function, which is perfect for dropping hints, and an in-app shopping list, so you don’t forget about anything. You can browse deals by store or category if you’re looking for a specific item, or perform a general search. When viewing a specific store you’ll see pertinent information, such as validity and opening times at the top of the screen. Scroll all the way to the bottom and you can download a PDF of the ad when available.

Good luck, shoppers!
