    I don't normally shop Black Friday but this year I'm planning to pick up a laptop. :)

    I have a US address I can ship it to, so hopefully between the Canadian and American sites I can find a good deal. :x:


    Will you be looking online for anything in particular or braving the crazy in-store crowds?

    Staying as far away from the stores as possible all weekend. I'm building a computer for a family member, so I'm going to be shopping online, trying to get some good deals on computer parts.

    Shopping online. I'm after a 30-32" tv, so I *might* have to go to a store on the weekend. Hopefully I won't have to.

    Its supposed to be the same thing, but its no where near as big. Just a bunch of stores trying to jump on the bandwagon. A few did it, so they all have to do it.

    Target seems to have some decent deals. Most seems pretty normal though.

    I'll be checking out a couple websites as I have my breakfast on Friday, but no plans for any big spending.

    I have a couple friends who are planning on being in line at Old Navy when the doors open at 7am on Friday though, apparently the entire store is going to be 50% off.

    My lady and I went to target at 7:30ish I wanted to grab a TV and they had some great deals on Kids dvd's and toys.
    The place was insane, people swearing yelling pushing, grabbed Planes DVD for nephew and some toys and pulled the pin. They ran out of the TV I wanted within minutes they said.

    Went to future shop bedford, it was dead, had lots of everything. Picked up a TV.

    And smoothies at Pete's.

    My wife wants me to go over to Target as they have a good deal on iPods today. I think I'll tell her I went and they were sold out.

    Not really a sale, though - you get a $50 gift card when you buy something towards your next purchase. In the long run, though, better than the deals elsewhere.

    Wait until interest rates go up a few points and CMHC phases out its mortgage insurance program...then black Friday will be here.

    If anyone goes to the Halifax Shopping Centre can you please post in here and let me know if it's a mad house or not. I'd like to know if I should bother going or not. :kekeke:

    Black Friday is, quite possibly, the single most embarrassing day of the year to be an American. The bottom of the well trash fighting each other, trampling, for what? Some cheap made-in-China goods, the day AFTER you give "thanks"? Pathetic, fucking disgusting. I will never participate.
