Black Friday May Be Over, But The Deals Are Not

"The dust has now settled on the madness that is Black Friday, doors have been busted, deals have been had. But that doesn’t mean you still can’t save money this weekend, leading into Cyber Monday." -PSLS (3DS, Amazon.com, Black Friday, PC, PS Vita, PS3, Wii U, Xbox 360)

How do these retailers make any money with deals like these? Or is the mark up normally that high all year round?

They are in the black so anything they make from here till the end of the year is pure profit. Hence "black" Friday.

My wife just made the same comment when she got a Samsung Galaxy S4 for only $24.... Amazon takes losses in order to get you into their ecosystem. Once you become an Amazon customer, it is very hard to separate from the convenience and great customer service. They used to give a lot of $10 and $20 credits when pre-ordering video games and Amazon still was not a first-stop destination. Now, you don't see that as often --usually $5.00 for a pre-order, if anything. Amazon is now a MAJOR player in video games.

The best deal in town is Amazon Prime, if you order from them enough to make it worthwhile. Amazon is making a killing on Prime memberships which also helps them offset some losses on individual products.
