At Staples B&M stores ONLY (not listed online), they are offering the Fujifilm Instax Mini 12 instant camera for $70. Which becomes a better deal if you have Staples Rewards and/or Gift Cards to use/spend.

Next up we head on over to the Wal*Mart Black Friday where we find all kinds of deals for all budgets including $50 Gourmia shiny kitchen gadgets (air fryer, espresso machine, etc).

In terms of BF Cameras, they have some of the usual MAP offerings that you find in all retailers. Their headliner is a Fujifilm INSTAX Mini 7+ Bundle (10-Pack film, Album, Camera Case, Stickers) in three pastel color scheme options for $55. Camera IS included πŸ™‚
