Black Friday: What's Your Favorite Deal?

Black Friday brings thousands of deal-seeking shoppers to area malls year after year. Today we caught up with some busy shoppers to find out what their favorite deals this year were so far.

"My favorite deal was from Victoria's Secret. I saved $20," said one shopper in Arlington.

"I got a pair of skinny jeans from the Gap that were originally $70 for $20!" said another excited Black Friday shopper.

But not everyone is pleased with this year's specials.

"It's pretty lame this year. There's nothing exciting...even with the web specials," said one disgruntled shopper at the Fashion Centre in Pentagon City. He was going to head to Tyson's Corner next to see if maybe they had more to offer.
