Black Friday...Big Deal?????

Well, we got rid of the campaign commercials finally.

But now we are into the Black Friday commercials.

We hear during every commercial break that the best deals are on Black Friday.

But, are the deals really the best then.

Maybe some, some great deals are very very limited.


I hear every year where waiting a could of weeks yo will see better deals.

I know that I will wait a couple of weeks and take my chances.

I don't plan on risking my life and limb for a "Deal".


For those of you heading out...GOOD LUCK!!!

No risking here either.  I'm happy to pay more for my sanity.

William, as bad as the Black Friday commercials are, they aren't nearly as mean as the political stuff.  So glad they stopped!

I watched a segment on one of the morning news shows.  It had mixed reviews about "Black Friday" deals actually being the best!  I haven't ventured out on the day after Thanksgiving to shop in years.

I see Black Friday starting at the beginning of November. Christmas trees out for sale already. And crazy traffic. Great time for R&R and to eat leftovers from Thanksgiving.

You would have to pay me lots and lots of money to venture out in that mess.

Good morning William.  No deals for me as I have already bought my one gift.  The wife on the other hand is about half the way done.  She may get out but I won't hold my breath

Hi William.  And after Black Friday it will be Cyber Monday and then Christmas and so on and so on.  It never ends.

William Feela Every year I shudder when I drive past retailers and see hopeful shoppers camping in cold weather thinking they will receive fabulous bargains on Black Friday. Silly people!

I have been getting Black Friday deals by email for over a week. So far the only purchase is a pair of ECCO shoes retailing at $120 for $40. Now if the Apple 2 Watch goes on sale......

I do not plan to do any Black Friday shopping.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

No way...the deals are not that good and the ones that are you  need to fight for the few they have in stock.

It may be that you can get a great deal on Black Friday...but is it worth the time and effort? I would pay the extra money not to deal with the craziness.
