Black Friday = Corporate America doing what it does best. Convincing YOU that you just HAVE to run out and blow your paycheck on those worthless, bull$hit products. Have fun....I will be nice and cozy in bed.

My wife and I MADE most of the gifts we will be giving this year. We garden, and make homemade salsa's, wine, BBQ sauces and spices. Our family and friends would much rather receive something  personal. The bastardizing of every holiday by corporate America has to stop. SAY NO, STAY HOME FRIDAY!!! Better yet, take your kids hunting.

Those who have been setting up tents and such, are in a very sad kind of thinking. The retailers pay good money to have their advertisers run all of the hype and what do these shoppers do?? They run or I should say, practically smash the doors down to get to the few items they have advertised. If they want other shoppers out of their way, they run over them. So much for the so called 'Christmassy Feeling" of brotherhood?? It's all out the window due to greed and misconception...the holiday is about greed, save your money people. And find out how this holiday got it's start.

People let others enjoy there Holidays at home.  We have 365 days a year to shop.  I think we can stay home on Turkey day and Day before and day of Christmas.

 

Let some working people rest.  Give the greatest gift ever to everyone REST.....

How many of you Black Friday shoppers actually got the "door buster" items?  Or are you like me, when I got to Target at 6:00 am, so I bought something that I did not intend to buy and stood in line for an hour and a half to pay for it.  No more black friday shopping for me.  I don't even need any of the door buster items.

Price match guarantee does not apply at Amazon.com because this TV is a "doorbuster" item that is not covered at Amazon. So this price on the Toshiba is good only at Best Buy (for those interested).

BLACK FRIDAY?!!  What a phrase!  We all should laugh in the face of stupidity. I can only suggest that we keep our hard earned dollar for what really applies to true meaning in our lives.

The Toshiba deal is wrong as it shows here. I had a long phone conversation with Amazon a short while ago and was directed to the terms and conditions page for price matching. Two lines stood out to affirm this policy about store vs. online pricing.
"#6. Time-limited sales events (such as Black Friday, "early bird" or "door buster" offers ), offers advertised as limited in time or quantity, clearance, liquidation and going-out-of business sales, and loyalty program offers are also ineligible for the Guarantee." and
 "#10. The Guarantee applies to websites only, not brick-and-mortar stores."

The writer made a mistake on the KMart 32in TV deal.  The $88 deal is for 19in TV.  32in TV is $229.  The other deals had a picture of the actual flyer, but this deal doesn't.  That's why -- because it doesn't exist.

 

 I guess when it comes to web posting, they don't go through the rigorous editing and fact checking process as the newspaper or TV programs.

To Musiclover88...Glad to hear that your sister chose such a noble profession and I feel for the ones that have chosen to give up the holidays to care for others and am very supportive of those in the healthcare fields and public service fields like our police departments, fire departments and EMT services,  however they have chosen these professions and knew what it was to sacrafice their own personal time to CARE for others. I also have family members that have chosen professions that does not allow them to have the holidays off with their families as well (oil field workers) but they make these choices on their own. It used to be that in this country we valued family time spent it together...stores used to be closed on Sundays as well...and like most family oriented people I really would prefer not to have the stores open on the holidays as well to allow anyone that CHOSES that time to be spent with their families...if more people would think about more than just their own pocket books (department stores and their profits) and think about the greater good of humanity we would probably be living in a much better (caring) world that is considerate of others no matter where they chosen to be employed.

I just spent a half hour on the phone with Amazon, and they will not price match. So if you were planning on buying it from the and was going to ask for a price match don't.

One of my core life priciples: "I am not a market".  I can not be influenced into thinking I need anything.

The deals that are out there for TV's don't interest me. I'll be buying clothes and other household items on sale on Black Friday

I can buy electronics at better times of the year and I don't need game bundles or games systems as I stop playing the buy and spend game.
