i thought this was a thread for making fun of black friday shoppers.
Post deals here. Brag about shit you got. Admit you waited outside in the cold on Thanksgiving so we can all laugh at you.

i thought this was a thread for making fun of black friday shoppers.
A new ski helmet and a pair of goggles is pretty much the only stuff I'm thinking to buy in the next 6 months, I sure as shit am not going to wait in line anywhere to save 50 bucks.
I entirely stopped to shop for Christmas, I just give money to everyone (yes, even to mom and dad) plus some from random thingies I get when traveling like silk sashes, carvings and shit.
Fuck xmas, fuck thanksgiving, fuck black friday.
You'll get gifts when I feel like giving a gift. Not when corporations tell me to
while family is all out fighting for clothes and stupid shit (most gifts are bought online now) I like to get a free coffee and donut from sams club, then go hang out at walmart and see poor people kill each other over the weirdest shit in the world. I'll keep you bros posted on what other free stuff is coming out this BF.
this year should be particularly epic with black friday starting on thursday, some stores are opening at 8am and most are going to be open all day thanksgiving and some are not shutting down at night. I sometimes wonder what people in china think of us and how much shit we buy with their credit.

Is the place to go to keep an eye out for all the black friday deals going down
Yeah, slickdeals.net is awesome.

Would now be a good time to build a computer?
The wife and her family live for this holiday. I tag along because I find it disturbing and hilarious. I think last year I grabbe dead island for $10 or something and that was it. Might grab bf4 this year but hoping amazon matches the GameStop price.
I have never done a BF because it blows my mind that people behave like complete animals. You would swear it was the end times or something. On that note are there any good deals online via Amazon or something to keep an eye on?
That video is a sad commentary on human life. The deals might be good, but is it really worth being reduced to an animal state? The scary thing is a lot of those people love the environment, regardless of the deals. It gives legal right to push, shove, and in cases out right stampede the person next to you. The reason I do not go is, I am afraid of how I would react to people pushing me around. Being compressed between bodies like what is shown in those videos would have a very bad effect on me.
I've gone to Walmart and Target the last few years and I've never seen anything like in those videos. I'm guessing those are city stores?
Actually they should have a black Friday gameshow. Set up an obstacle course and just have a thousand people rushing to pay half price on a TV set.

MWS Natural "As an online discussion grows longer, the probability of a comparison involving black people approaches 1."
I wonder how many people will die from being trampled this year.
Gotta get the deals. Fucking Black Friday disgusts me. Who would give up spending time with family on Thanksgiving to buy shit like an animal?
Gotta save $30 on that tablet bro. Most important thing on earth.
If I were king I'd have these idiots dual it out American Gladiators style for their deals.
Kinda surprised there hasn't been a Black Friday shooter. Packed mayhem, seems like the perfect opportunity for a spree killing. Plus will make bf shopping next year a lot more hassle free
I usually wait for cyber monday sales. Last two years we found better deals there than in actual stores. (Wife is a bestbuy manager, she usually asks for an extra $100 to pick up xmas gifts in mass and that's it)

Cyber Monday has become Cyber Everyday. Other than the "door busters" you can get everything online for the same price.
Last year I tried doing the Black Friday thing. I remember being disappointing that unless I was willing to wait 3 hours in front of one door for like 50% off an o.k. item of which they only have 10 in stock, there's no deals to be had on Black Friday. I think those 9.99 toasters at Walmart are actually 8.99 the rest of the year.
Cyber Monday has less shocking discounts, but plenty of marked down items to be had.
not been to a store opening in several years, but all the stores around me hand out coupons for the limited big ticket items.
this whole idea of opening at 8pm is retarded, would hope it backfires, but too many stupid people out there.
I've always been either too drunk or too hungover to go to black friday sales. It's much easier to just sit on the computer and buy stuff for the same price.

i live right next to the clothing outlets in pa, like literally a 15minute walk, bananna republic,RL,dkny,coach, everything. i can tell you right off the bat having been here for 6 years, there are no deals on black friday that are worthwhile. It's actually more worthwhile just to get regular coupons by email/mail (or spend 5bucks and get an all access coupon book) and buy clothes 2 weeks before or 2 weeks after black friday.
a typical tactic is that they'll have clothes marked down (tag says $49, sticker says $29) and you can then stack $10 off $50 coupons.
a black friday deal will be the entire store is 50% off no coupons... BUT they relabel every piece of clothing to the original sticker price, so like no deal really. (this is just a theoretical example, but is pretty much what happens)
for me, i don't shop black friday... but it just so happens my wife wants an ipad mini (i bought her an ipad last year), and target has
300bucks with a 75 gift card (if you don't know by now you cannot lower the MSRP of apple products, so stores give out giftcards instead)
and walmart has the same deal but it's a $100gift card.
since i live out in rural pa, the walmart is actually a full on supermarket as well, so i could always bust up that gift card no problem.
target also has the nintendo 3dsXL for $150, i bought a DS for my wife like years ago... and while i don't care for the 3d... it's the only way to get the new phoenix wright game (she loves that series)
problem is that for black fridays all the parking lots are filled up to the brim, so i'll probably just have to walk to both of them, 30minutes to walmart then 50minutes to target (since it's the other way)
The trick is to get someone that you know is going to stand in line and ask them to pick up something for you and you'll reinburse them. Gets me out of standing out in the cold and getting the item I want. Since I know people that do this it usually isn't that hard.
I am looking at that LG $499 TV at Best Buy but I may be able to snag that online.
I got a 4TB drive on newegg for 130 bucks for their black friday sale.
I will be sitting at home on Friday, probably work half the day, play with my kids half the day.
I need a Samsung 840 256gb PRO SSD badly. So if anyone sees that on sale, post it.
I'm in the market for a Chromebook. Hoping one of the new ones will be a little off on cyber Monday. Worth checking on Friday as well, but definitely not going to fight the crowds in a store for a few bucks off...
I live in MA, so legally no stores can open until midnight, and most don't open until 1AM. Kind of weird blue laws but I like it. If I had to get out at 8pm on thanksgiving I would fucking murder a bitch. The best part is my job pays us for thanksgiving and black friday as holiday pay, so either way I ain't doing shit all day.
Looking at tablets and maybe some videogames. Saw no door busters. And kohls has the dress shirts I like for $10 so I'll hit them up.
edit wrong thread
Wal mart is doing a deal where they guarantee the door buster crap will be in stock for 1 hour. Just show up at 6:30, miss the running of the rednecks, and get your stuff (or a rain check).
amazon has great deals on SSD,i picked an intel 240GB for $150
Only purchase this year was a $85 after tax nook HD for my mom. Thought about the $200 40in Westinghouse from target but eh. Don't have a need for it?
ps vita is up on ebay for 155 on the blackfriday deal. 149+5 shipping. go go
I posted this in the next gen console thread but i'll post here too. Walmart ~4 hours after opening. Not a PS4 in sight, but the guy told me he only sold two xbox ones since opening. Sorry xboner, you lost.

I looked through all the local ads for what was going on for black friday, nothing I seen would have me go out at 4am to shop. Plus all these deals are usually around all December long, so I dont feel like I am missing out on anything atm. A Big Lots around me was advertising those extra large recliners for just $189, then I remembered I can get one all year long for $200 on ebay. I do plan on buying a new 55"+ TV before Christmas though. All the places around me seemed to only have deals for 32-42" TVs, way to small for my living room.
Most of the best deals are online anyway, Amazon usually kicks ass.
Free shipping is available of course, since its over $35.
BTW the guy in that pic said in a few minutes he was going to start dancing to try to get people to buy the xbox, i didn't stick around.
Kind of disappointing this year. I really just want to see the animals out right attack each other. Pull some machetes and chainsaws out and just go for it. I think Black Fridays will always have an appeal but I would not be surprised to see the market decrease as more and more people become aware that it is just not worth all the trouble. The only reason it will not outright stop is because many of the people that go out, do it purely for the environment, not the sales.
Have to admit, if a terrorist really wanted to send a message, Black Friday would be an ideal time to do it. Surprised it has not happened yet. Mass amount of capitalist Americans stampeding into a store and suddenly...booom. Nobody even thinks to check people for weapons. They just open the doors and let this huge crowd of congested people run through.
So on Black Friday at my store we had 2 women get in a fist fight over sheets. Someone shit in the sink in the mens bathroom, a kid had a seizure and the mom got pissed she may lose her spot in line when EMTs came and had to have sign some paper work.
I hate people.
Yeah, one of the few actual reasons to have a log-in for youtube is to change the settings so you don't get annotations or captions.
I mentioned it in the ruslted jimmie thread but there are add ons for browsers (I use FireFox) that allow you to set what you want to show and not show as well as standard resolution without logging into youtube.
Maybe it was because of the earlier Thursday openings, but Friday morning, at least around here, was pretty damn boring. Traffic was a snap and nothing seemed busy. Maybe more in-town areas were busier, but it seems to me like the Doorbusting phase is wearing off on people. I guess once we see the numbers we'll know.
How many of you abused the 20% off Amazon gift card thing? That's always the best Black Friday deal...
I scored a Smart samsung 32" TV for 240$ on Amazon. Perfect for my home office
i got a ton of shit online, and went to the local waffle joint at 8am on black friday to eat chiken n waffles while family fought it out in target (they got a 20% off coupon i can use this week if anything good comes up). I did notice there really weren't many people around on friday at 8 and 9am shopping, hope the whole "lets open on thursday" thing backfired on retailers.
- $399 touch laptop (retail 899) from microsoftstore, was oos in under 15 minutes
- $399 dell 8700 desktop ($799) from bestbuy, replacing kids pc
- 2 nexus 7s for $149 each, gonna preload em with a bunch of books and apps i got free too
- two 3ds xl for $150 each at target.com as xmas gifts, unfortunately not the zelda bundles would have had to go instore for those
- shitloads of games from amazon for 3ds, pc, and ps4 as gifts
- 2 brother laser aoi printers from amazon as gifts, $99 normally $199
- four ps+ cards for $30 each, two for me
there were a bunch of nice stacking savings too, like 5% off amazon with citibank or $25 off $250 @ bestbuy and walmart.com with amex/twitter. All in all I bought almost all my xmas gifts, did it all from my pcmasterrace desktop, and continued the true holiday tradition of being a fat american who can shop while stuffing my face, watching football, and not moving.
The only thing that really is missing is that 80% of the stuff was still physical goods that need to be shipped to me, I look forward to the day that all christmas gifts can be digital.
and there is still cybermonday left to celebrate the holidays
I'm going to invite spronk to my christmas celebration.
I haven't upgraded my desktop in forever, so will hopefully be replacing it on cyber monday. relying on rerolled to tell me what to swoop, as I have been sick and lazy all week
