  • Definitely! But I'm also allergic to idiots, and I've found that they're usually out in droves on black Friday.

  • That's just crazy. SO and I were just discussing this. Some woman had been camped out at a store since yesterday just to get a good deal.

    I'll pay the extra just so I can spend time with my family.

  • I'd rather shop online... No crowds, No competition, Always find exactly what I want, Pay WAY Less than in the store and NO LINES!

  • i know i would. half the time you don't even get half of the stuff you want anyways. it just seems silly to me to stand in line for hours in cold whether and deal rediculous crowds when most of the time you can find these things somewhere else for a good deal. or when a lot of websites are also having black friday deals online in the comfort of your own home. especially since that guy in a NY walmart got killed by being mulled over by a crowd a few years ago.

  • If you know where to look there is always printable coupons for the store/item you're looking for and you get pretty much the same discount or more. Jmo though.

  • People are so nasty on black friday. I went out once to get a camcorder (mine miseriously vanished after a certain family member was around) and I hadn't really budgeted for buying one. So I went out at 4am to get one. I got the one I wanted and got about $100 off what I had paid for the first one that came up missing, but it was a miserable experience. Never again will I do black friday. It put me in the worst mood. Now I either shop on line or pay full price in stores. If fact, I am COMPLETELY done with my kids. I have my hubs and my parents to shop for but thats it. Shopping early and shopping smart is totally the way to go.
