Do you want to help me build a searchable Black Friday database?

I recently discovered bestblackfriday.com and I thought how cool would it be if all those Black Friday scans were to be converted into a searchable database and open sourced possibly as JSON files for anyone to grab, plug into a database (or use as is) and build a simple UI around it.

This effort would involve manually looking at the add scans and adding products one by one and by hand.

Anyone willing to help with this effort? Any suggestions or reservations regarding this idea?

Obviously this is time sensitive as Black Friday is only 2 weeks away, but I think this might be a great opportunity!

Yeah sure. I can do some UI work too.

Turns out bestblackfriday.com does have a searchable list of items in every add scan they post... I somehow missed it...
