Did You Brave Black Friday? Share Your Experience.

Did you go out at the stroke of midnight and begin your Black Friday frenzy? The recession has made bargain hunters out of almost every consumer, and discounters of most every retailer. That combination alone is sure to make this year's Black Friday more exciting than ever. More over, with today's economy, forecasters are predicting that everyday between now and Christmas Eve will be just as good as Black Friday for consumers.

What smokin' deals did you cash in on today? Were you online reaping the sale benefits or did you go weather the crowds & cold?

Re: Did You Brave Black Friday? Share Your Experience.

My wife decided to get up this morning and buy a laptop. I tried to sell her on a Mac but when we compared prices she opted for a Vista laptop. I tried and tried to tell her otherwise but she wouldn't budge. The Vista laptop was half the cost of a the cheapest Macbook. Event the Black friday price I had read about. So she rolled over to Office Depot and picked up her ticket for the laptop. She waited in line and when she finally got up there she was told all 6 were gone. It seems that managers were hand writing tickets in essence double selling the items. She was out of luck. Unfortunately my wife is waaaaaaaaay too nice. She didn't even complain. I said it's a sign that we should get a macbook. I'll have to work on that sell again later. 

I don't want to die without any scars.

I just checked Macmall and the prices are barely better than the black Friday specials from Apple. The cheapest Macbook is about $30 cheaper. I wonder if she'll let me make a Hackintosh.

woot-holiday style! husband of mine ran to the hardware store for a few items, not intending to xmas shop, and ended up w/a dyson dc17 for $259 - now that is seriously a smokin' deal of the day. they retail normally from $349 to $549. not bad for accidently stumbling upon a deal.

Score!!!  The only place I've ever seen them that cheap is once in a while on Woot.com.

 I was so close to giving in...but the bed was much more comfy! lol. Plus I HATE crowds when I'm doing my shopping. I'm the one that goes to the mall mid-week during the day when everyone is at work. I'm sure stores will continue having good sales. I'm waiting for after Christmas to shop for myself, that's when everything is on clearance!

I stayed in and trimmed back a knockout rose bush.  Then I ran about 11 miles and saw a couple of horses that haven't been out in a while.  They remembered me.  Finally went out to a Iranian-owned liquor store and their "Black Friday" sale was Jose Cuervo Black Medallion tequila.  Not much of a sale I don't think, but they burn this killer incense in their store.  Then I went to Walmart and bought a USB MS keyboard for myself 'cause I needed one.

Right now, I'm doing tequila shots with salt and lime so I think my "Black Friday" was a success!

That may turn out to be "Black-out Friday"   :)

That was really bad about that Walmart employee getting trampled and killed by eager shoppers.   Just like The Who concert in Cincinnati.. (what in '78 or '79?  I almost went to that show) I think once the water boils out of this pan it might at least change what we know as "Black Friday".

i also braved black friday telephone style. all of the custom blinds, window treatments, and furniture i ordered this past week went on sale...you guessed it....today! so i cashed in even further as those retailers were happy to credit my account the difference in price. all it took was a call to ask!
