Black Friday / Cyber Monday Thread 2012

Didn't see one of these - Mods feel free to delete/move if there is an existing one.

So is it still worth it to head down to the States on Friday or over the weekend to pick up some stuff? I'm moving to a new place and am hoping to score a TV and a quality sound system and maybe pick up some clothing on the way. How cheap does it get? Anyone else heading down over the weekend?

be my guest

People will start lining up a day before opening so if you were hoping to snatch some door crashers...I say it's definitely not worth it

Black Friday @ Brick and Mortar Retail?



I'll be at home, where pants are optional and beer is cheap, scoping the deals online.

It's not actually as bad as the videos posted above... I'd say it's pretty worth while, my friends and I went down last year and snagged a brand new 50' Sony flat screen TV from wal-mart for just around $500 USD. although we were only in Tulailap so I can't speak for the rest of the malls/outlets out there.

But overall to get the best deals you'd probably have to go down on Thursday evening, because some shops will start their black Friday sales at 10 PM Thursday night, with additional discounts for the first several hours. And correct me if I'm wrong but I do believe that wal-mart doesn't start it's black Friday sale until it's officially hit 12 AM, so just stick by what you want to buy and wait till it's time to check out I guess.

If you feel that is going to be too tiring for you, try and snag a deal on a cheap hotel from priceline or something. It was 50bux for a night and gave us a place to crash and rest before making the trip back up to Vancouver. Might be too late now but I'm not too sure since I wasn't planning on going back this year.

edit: If you want the deals, your best bet is to be there just as the sale starts.

Should have waited a year and got it for $299.

I went the last 4 years
Usually to portland.
Salem to be exact (little past portland to not compete w/ all the Washington resident that crosses state lines for tax savings)

We start lining up usually Thursday morning, and hit best buy first, then go to the outlet, and then the mall.

Usually the best savings for me are the small xmas presents.
I usually spend $500+ at toyrus buying all the gifts for my friend's kids.
The outlet usually have some pretty good deals too.
I don't bother for the BIG door crashers, like the $299 samsung TV lastyear, which people started to line up on monday for.
But last year I got PS3 for $199.99, 3 Bluray players for $50 each (toshiba), Sonicare Toothbrush for $20, Shark Steamvac $20
A bunch of blurays for $5 each.

Too bad I can't go this year due to work obligations

I'm currently in the market for a laptop, but the only problem that I see with electronics on Black Friday/Cyber Monday is that they tend to be older machines or seem to cheap out on one of the features. Or maybe I just suck at looking at flyers..

November last year local Costco. Bought 2. Then went to BB and bought to more with the 10% price beat.

Bought a Blue ray player from Walmart for $39.99.


Black Friday and Boxingday lineups are not worth it. almost froze my balls off at A/B for a tape deck and a 56k modem. The stuff on sale is stuff they usually don't carry or is old stuff they are getting rid of. Also 3 to 6 months after the sales you will find similarly priced stuff at a regular sale.

i am looking for a laptop for normal usage (no gaming, no video editing). I had my eye on a Samsung ultrabook before, but now it sold out at future shop. And i forgot what model was that.

It has hdmi, ssd, thin and light, maybe 13" or 15", around $600 at Lansdowne future shop. Do you guys happen to know what model is that?
