I got a decent TV from target the day after thanksgiving a couple years back, it was busy but really not the hell stories you hear about. I find shopping online is way easier and usually saves you much more money though.

Seen this today and wasn't sure if it was legit. Wondering if the S2 for $99.99 is supposed to be the S3 because the S2 is already 49.99 online


Yeah makes sense

Really need a new laptop this year for school as both of my old ones crapped out making me check one out from UW's IT department for a month for $80. Also helps that it's around my birthday. Going to try to find something with i5+, SSD 128GB+, and 6GB+ of RAM. If anyone sees something like that... :)

Online shopping is the way to go, and many sites have made it a real-time experience that's kind of fun. Amazon is pretty cool with countdowns to items going on sale, and there are some good deals to be found. Plus, no pants while shopping.

Yep. I do 99.9% of my clothes shopping online and basically from just a couple of places. Over a period of time I know exactly how something will fit. Even you aren't sure, you can always send it back for store credit and get the size you need, all in the span of a few days usually.

I feel like women love to shop in person, while guys prefer to do it online. At least that's how it is with my friends.

For the last few months I have been contemplating getting an Amazon prime account so I can legitimately do all of my shopping (other than food I guess) online. Haven't done it yet, but I will eventually.

As someone with family who've had [read: taking off was not an option] to work retail on Black Friday in the wee hours, I cannot get behind the hoopla. It manages the feat of fouling up both Thanksgiving and the next 48 hours after. Can't really lay the blame solely at the feet of retailers. Without shoppers camping out overnight, we wouldn't see these pre-midnight stampedes.

But hey, TVs, I guess. Just don't kill anyone this year if you go out early.

Second this.

I think I've actually made money off of them over the years.

i must be weird, i don't mind the crowds, i'm just the type of person that likes to very carefully and slowly think over any medium or larger purchase.

that said, i slipped into and out of walmart with fifa 12 for $25 last year in about 20 minutes. then nearly died in the parking lot.

I really wanted a phone and didn't feel like waiting, so I bought a Razr Maxx HD a few weeks ago. But I wish I had waited because I bet Amazon wireless will have it $100 cheaper on Black Friday with discounts on the data plan to boot. They had some good specials last year on the latest phone.

Despite my regrets about purchasing it too early, this phone has a lot of really good qualities and I highly recommend you check prices on amazon wireless next week if you're in the market for a phone.

Okay, so Black Friday is a waste of time for trying to go and get a deal on a laptop. Try Thanksgiving night or Cyber Monday instead. Noted.

Nobody has opinions on what laptops to go for this season? I really don't know what I should be looking for or what brands to stay away from, etc.
