Old Nov 26th, 2010, 03:23 AM        Black Friday Purchases?
So is anybody here buying anything on Black Friday (online or in stores). If so, what are you getting?

I'm in the market for a new computer, so I'm keeping my eyes peeled, but there's no way I'm gonna camp out at any stores.

I scored random stuff online (toys, clothes, etc) for cheap. I like sites like retailmenot for good coupon codes (free shipping and stuff like that)...usually I can reduce the cost of a purchase by at least $5-10.

We wait until after Christmas to look for cheap bargains here in the more civilised nations.

I have a Greek cousin who always has it made. She gets to shop for Greek Christmas, so she gets the best deals.

Definitely not doing Black Friday because I don't think it's worth the time and trouble. I went last year and I just ended up with some clothes. The sales are usually average at best.

Got two new pairs of jeans for $20. That's like a second Christmas for Texans.

I went to Fry's in City of Industry. Below freezing. Got there about 10:30, as usual. Bought a 16GB Flash drive for $20, 200 DVDs for $20 and my first netbook for $150. Took all day to set it up, but now it's spiffy. A little slow, but it works.

Was Hickory Farms on sale for Black Friday? I would have totally stocked up on fat wieners and crackers.

I'm going shopping next week. Most of my stuff is done, I just have a couple who are difficult to buy for. I think I'm going to buy liquor for my mom. Classy!

Four pairs of pants, a business suit, two camis, two tank tops, a dressy sweater, and a black dress classy enough to wear to a military ball for $180.

No, not from walmart.

This isn't exactly black friday but I don't want to make a new thread.

Fuck SkyMall up its fucking ass.

I had dismissed them previously as being overpriced Hammacher Schlemmer-style stuff marketed toward a bored captive audience, so I was surprised when their price on a gift was the cheapest online. I went ahead and ordered, all was fine.

Suddenly I get the following email:

"Your SkyMall Order Status- Cancelled

Thank you for shopping with SkyMall. We regret to inform you that your order for the item mentioned below will not be fulfilled. This may be due to a request from you to cancel the order or may be due to a Merchant discontinuation of the item. If you purchased this order with a credit card, a charge for the full purchase amount may appear on your monthly statement. However, this will be followed by a credit equal to the amount of any merchandise that cannot be shipped. Your satisfaction is very important to us. If you would like to order another item, or if we can assist you in any way, please visit us at www.skymall.com, e-mail us at customerservice@skymall.com, or call us at 1-800-SKY-MALL (1-800-759-6255). "

I see I was wrong to give them a chance.
