    Check Amazon and Newegg first. If you can find a good deal you can just order it online.

    Hogmanay! I learned something new today. Love that the term's derivation could be any or all of Norse, Goidelic, or French, no one seems to know.

    Amazon has some really good deals on video games. Got Borderlands 2 and Dishonored for $25 each. I'm trying to get Assassin's Creed 3 at that price but it looks like I will have to pay $35.

    Also, I am not too into the idea, but I may buy a laptop for myself next year for when I start college. I am hoping to find a good 15" for under $250.

    Other than that not too much interests me. Maybe a gander mountain hoodie for $30

    By far the dumbest thing I've ever seen in my life. This was my first & last Black Friday experience. Went to my local Walmart & I think the whole county was in the joint & witnessed people literally getting violent over home phones. On the bright side brought home a 60" inch Vizio Smart TV for $688.

    Noway I'm going to wait outside a store for hours to get some discount.

    All I wanted is another phone to replace my bland new HTC EVO 4G LTE (drop it and cracked the screen) and saw this morning that Sprint had a special on Samsung Galaxy SIII for $49.99 online, so I ordered it and I'm all set.:)

    Got AC3 and Borderlands 2 at BestBuy for $35 each. That's all though.

    most retailers won't pay their employees their Thanksgiving holiday pay is they call in on Black Friday, don't know many that pay time and a half for it.

    Picked up a 55" Samsung LED TV for $799. Wanted one with WiFi, but nothing could touch that price. It has a 120hz refresh rate, but the volume doesn't go up very high. (nothing a sound system won't fix).

    All in all, it's not absolutely perfect, but at $799 it was a hell of a deal. The kids are damn happy about it.

    I picked it up on Saturday night though, not on Friday.

    Avoid it all together. Avoided Black Friday, Small Business Saturday except to get some glasses tisk tisk, and Cyber Monday.

    Not the shopping kind unless it comes to music and books.
