This is a topic where you can share funny stories about Thanksgiving and black friday.

also with the disappearance of my Prime as of late I am going to look for some deals on calcs for black friday (yes I realize that there are not going to be many good deals on calcs if any at all (I am dubious also))

Thanks for the laughs   8)

I wish Target didn't screw up their Canadian expansion and didn't end up closing every Canadian store last April. They had by far the best Black Friday sale of all around here (although the ones who had the $50 off + 1 extra game on the XBone were good). Sears usually does Black Friday through the entire weekend and as a result the deals aren't as interesting.

I'm gonna keep an eye on video game deals at Microplay, EB Games and also music at HMV, though. The problem is Black Friday isn't as big in Canada since our Thanksgiving is in October. Boxing Day usually is more crowded, but stores opens at 1 PM.

Wait what? O.O Isn't Black Friday in 2 weeks? Seriously if you really want to be sure to get something, just arrive an hour or two before the store opens and if you fail then be it. Besides, sometimes people just buy stuff they don't really need anyway.

Besides, even if he had to camp for 2 weeks in front of the store to get a particular item, wouldn't he have risks of getting his stuff stolen while he went a few streets away to buy food?

That's the big idea, "massive" discounts so peopl will buy their stuff they don't even need anyway

Yup, never go to black friday deals if you don't know what you want and what is/ is not a good deal otherwise it is really easy to get ripped off <_<

Yeah you now bring up or make me think of another issue (depending of what you meant by your post): Often, during Black Friday and Boxing Day sales, they'll price everything else at regular price or only 5-10% off, because they know that most customers will buy other junk while taking advantage of the big deal, so in the end, some people will spend $200 on a 50 inch TV at 50% off the original price, plus $300 on other items at full price. And those fully-priced items will be on sale just a week after New Year.
