Black Friday: What do you think of the people who throw 5 of the same item in their cart?

Like who needs 6 GPS' or 4 big screens? Most of them look like they can't afford one! But they will throw it on there and walk around for awhile, just so I can't have one.

  • Follow them around. lol. Maybe they will put it back at some point and you can pick it up.

    Seriously, when I worked at Walmart there was a limit to how many of the same items you could buy.

  • I think they are buying gifts...just like you. I have bought several of a toy. I have twins, so I usually buy at LEAST two of something. I also have nieces and nephews

  • Depends on how you look at it. Some might do it for others..such good deals why not get multiples for other ppl on your list? Or, they may get them for gifts throughout the year.
    Some do it to spend the money.

  • I never shop on Black Friday. I have never seen this. I just shop online.

  • They have families who want those things I guess. If they can afford it, so be it, is my motto.

  • I think they also shop in groups. 1 person goes to walmart, another has been dropped off somewhere else and they pick up stuff for eachother.
