Black Friday is coming.. what's on your list?

Post by LesBleus** » Wed Oct 10, 2018 4:18 pm

Been waiting for BF for a while and planning to buy a new gaming machine $600 tops which I know isn't going to be the greatest. A nice monitor and powered speakers to go along with it. Also looking will be looking out for Zara and H&M deals.

Sleeping in, making turkey soup, eating leftovers, and sitting by my wood stove. Maybe take a walk down to the beach if its not raining.

new iPhone for wife, I could keep mine unless I get a really good offer. Could get a 4K TV if it is a good deal as well, but not waiting in lines to save a few hundred $$$ on a crappy old model TV.

Waffles from leftover stuffing with gravy for breakfast. And then a hike. We've done this for the last few BFs now. Stay far away from the malls.

Watching the Hawkeyes beat the Huskers...but still hoping for an upset (as I do every Saturday). But anything is better than fighting the shopping crowds regardless of any potential bargains.

You think weekends should be shorter? I'd think 3 day weekends would be a step in the right direction.

DW's Nexus 5 is a bit old, so maybe a new cellphone. It could be another droid or even a cheap iPhone. She is agnostic.

Or a derivative TV which might be worse....

If they have an amazing iPhone deal, i might be tempted. We also need a new vehicle or newish used one, if we don’t acquire something before then.

I loved my N5. Perfect size, quick, very easy to grip, and pretty durable. Camera was...not great. How have you managed to survive on that battery though?

A new phone to replace my Pixel XL, which I've been pretty happy with.

Unless they offer some crazy good deal, I'm not going with the new Pixel 3 XL. Probably pick up a Note 9. I wish the new OnePlus coming out worked with Verizon.

One of my credit cards has a 60 day window where it refunds price cuts. For me, Black Friday has already started.

I'd like to see OLED TV's come down in price. If not the big LED TV's are dropping too.
77" LG OLED $7K
86" LG LED $3.3k

A Windows laptop. The current Windows 7 failed to boot up 1 out of every 4 times.

Usage:
1. Log into financial institutes ONLY, no browsing.
2. MS Word.
3. MS Excel.
4. Viewing photos, no editing planned.

Hoping fellow BHs will come through with some on-sale heads-up.

We let the consumers consume and go for a day long hike in the woods as a family. I've done that for the last 40 years and have no regrets.

I bought a high end 65" TV in spring, so we need nothing that would be worth the hassle of black Friday. We will relax, maybe watch some football and possibly a round of golf if weather allows.

The last time I participated in Black Friday, I bought a new printer at a really good price in Office Depot. The savings were probably not worth the effort, but I did it anyway. There were a lot of shoppers there apparently only to buy blank DVDs which were on sale. Really!! Who would get up at 5am to save a few bucks on DVDs.

Black Friday for me is prepping for the shop local craft shows around us. Hopefully selling out of all the things I made this year. Next year I plan on taking it easier and only doing one craft show instead of a lot. I used to work retail and hated black friday, it was such a brutal day.

I would honestly feel badly for the employees if I took part in the early morning Black Friday rush or even worse, Thanksgiving shopping.

So did I!

Google usually has some good Black Friday deals. I might get a Pixel 3 if I see an amazing deal. Maybe pick up a 4k tv somewhere if I see a deal online. I'd rather die than step foot in a mall/store on that day.

Hopefully for your sake you guys stick with Frost and be patient. What he did for UCF was remarkable. He seems like the real deal, but sometimes turnarounds can take a while.

You are very lucky to have a day off.

I'm a govt worker, so as soon as I pick up my kitty litter I'm going to be bashing away at a keyboard for the next 8hrs chained to the desk. We only get Thanksgiving off (I think this is made up for by having Columbus day off which almost no one gets).
