And of course NewEgg has Early Black Friday Deals (http://promotions.newegg.com/NEemail/Nov-0-2009/Blackfriday13/index-landing.html) as well.


*For those of you outside the US, Black Friday is the Friday after our Thanksgiving Holiday (this year on Nov 26) and traditionally the start of the Christmas Buying Season. Many deep discounts to move products, often leading to customer stampedes at 4AM and cat-fights in the aisles of clothing stores.

If I can order online I will try to pick up a few good deals but If I have to go to the store, I am just beyond doing that. I am not going to wait in some line for hours to maybe get a good deal or save a few bucks on something.

Most of the time I find I can pick up what I need at really good prices by just watching for the deals throughout the year. It would have to be something really, really special to get me to go wait in a line in the middle of the night to get it..

Thanks for the links Jim.

I feel the same way as you cmerepair, there is no way I could stand in those lines for somewhat of a deal. If a good one pops up online, then I'm all over it.

Oh, I agree. These deals are online, rarely need to go to the store.

This is how I picked up Quickbooks Pro from OfficeMax.com for $69 (usually $199) with free shipping. A private car showed up in two days and the driver handed me the package!

I usually check bfads.net for black friday deals.

I have never gone to an actual store on Black Friday, and I don't think I plan on starting this year.

Unfortunatly we do not have Black Friday in Canada but we do have Boxing Day the Day after Christmas. Now the sales are not as low as those you get on Black Friday but then again the crowds are not as quick to snap at each other either.

I still will not go to the malls on Boxing Day though, just not worth it to me.

I agree about the crazy lines, which is why I limit myself to places that will never be too crazy. There's a Staples about a mile from my house and I think it averages 30 or 40 people which is not bad at all for Black Friday, and you can find some really good deals. They also tend to have good deals on basics like printer paper so I grab some while I'm there. But I would never go to Best Buy after the ordeal I went through the last time I was there.
