Black Friday/Small Business Saturday/Cyber Monday

Posted by   + Show Post

Will you be shopping Black Friday? If so, where will you be shopping it?

What about Small Business Saturday? 

Or Cyber Monday? Will you be shopping that?

That sounds like it would be a lot of fun! 

Quoting JoJoBean8:

NO to many crazies. We have a different black Friday tradition we go to a place called Christmas Village with the kids.

I love Black Friday, always have.

Not sure about Saturday but I do shop at small businesses a lot during the year, especially crafters.

Last year I bought myself a camera on Cyber Monday. The sales weren't great but I did like free shipping as I hate paying shipping.

I don't shop on Black Friday (I hate crowds). I try to support the small businesses all year long so I won't be specifically shopping with them on that Saturday. I've already bought a lot of Christmas presents from local businesses and independent consultants in my area.

Online all the way here!

I'll be shopping online on BF.  I may go to some stores later in the day after the crowds die down.  I'll probably be shopping at Target, Kohls, Toys R Us, Amazon, Five Below, Game Stop, etc.

Ive never heard of small business Saturday.

I'm not sure about Cyber Monday.  The past 2 years there weren't any good deals.  It's mostly just a lot of free shipping offers.  I do my cyber shopping on thanksgiving and BF.

I hate crowds too, and I too support local businesses year round! I do go and shop online for black friday, but I haven't seen too many good deals anyway in the last few years.

Last year I shopped online on Thanksgiving Day and Black Friday.  I found some ok deals and most were offering free shipping.

 I've both worked and shopped Black Fri once- never again. I really try to avoid actually shopping on that weekend, although part of our Thanksgiving tradition includes walking around the downtown mall Fri evening after the Circle of Lights. I don't shop online- I don't care how good a site's security is, I'm just a little too paranoid (we had our c.c. # stolen when ds1 was newborn, so I'm extra-wary about that).

We will hit Walmart on Thanksgiving night. We have done it for the last few years. That's where I stock up on pj's for the kids.
