2022 Black Friday

It's not a good as it used to be, but there are still some good deals to be had.

Shoppers Drug Mart is having a skookum Spend Your Points Event on Black Friday week (Nov 25 - Nov 30). $400.00 worth of stuff for 250,000 points. That's $150 free.

If you're into or getting into Cricut. All materials, tools, and mats are 50% off. Both via Cricut and Michael's. If you have a teacher friend, you can get a further 15% off at Michael's only. If you or your friend is registered as a teacher with Michael's, you can use their phone number. Just make sure if you're a he your friend is a he or she's a she (you get the idea). I don't think they really check. I wouldn't take a chance. Might get your friend's account canceled (not 100% sure).

Machines are on sale as well, but no further reductions and not 50% off. Michael's has same prices as Cricut.

If you or someone you know is wanting to get into turntables, I saw that the Marley Spin it Up is on sale at Best Buy. It's on sale for $249.00. This is a really cool entry level turntable. Friends don't let friends buy shitty turntables and record players like Crosley, Victrola, and the like. They will damage records in no time flat.

If you're an audiophile, this is the one day you must attend

https://manage.kmail-lists.com/subsc...JWB3&r=V5ZuLnw

https://hificentre.com

The one day you can go into the place without an appointment. Yes, bring a towel to wipe the drool off the floor. Check out the virtual tour and product line....... McIntosh, ftmfw!

If you are into headphones.............

https://mailchi.mp/8a988afc8cbb/meze...e?e=76fb470ee4
https://headphonebar.com/collections/black-friday-sale

I'm seriously thinking of getting the House of Marley Stir it Up turntable as a second turntable to play my not so perfect bargain LP's.

https://toprecordplayers.com/house-o...ntable-review/

https://www.loudersound.com/reviews/...rntable-review

I like the looks of it. Saw it at Best Buy. Best part is, it is very eco-friendly. Believe it or not, Shoppers has them on their website. along with the really crappy stuff. Spend your points event............... hmmmmm.............


UPDATE: House of Marley Canada has the turntables for even less. The one on Best Buy and Shoppers is the lower model and sells on the Marley website for $199.00. The new improved model has added features like Bluetooth and volume control for output. It sells for $249.99 on the Marley website. Best Buy states the turntable they sell comes with Bluetooth, but in reality, it is the one without Bluetooth. I saw the turntables at Best Buy in Coquitlam on Wednesday. BTW, they look better in real life.

https://www.thehouseofmarley.ca/turntables/

The other thing I found out is that proceeds from sales go to planting trees around the world. Sustainable and eco friendly. A tree hugger am I.

Forgot Cyber Monday.................. I totally wait all year to get gift cards from Lee Valley Tools. 15% off is the only time you can get anything on sale at Lee Valley. Aside from their "Special Buy" items. They also clear out some of their stock on Cyber Monday. On-line starting Sunday Midnight EST.

Gone are the days of huge lineups at Ikea, Future Shop, A&B Sound, etc.............. remember those days?

Local papers come out tomorrow (Thursday). Sometimes last minute deals are on the flyer inserts.

I remember lining up to get $300.00 worth of records, CD's DVD's for being the first three to be in the lineup. Got $250.00 gift voucher at Jysk one year. First one in line I was, gulolol. I think Ikea had some free vouchers for first 100 people in the line up........... not that long ago. Pre pandemic. Anyway, I'm retired.......... love beating off c-lai's trying to butt in line.

Hey, I went to five hour plus line ups at UBC for courses and books back in the dark ages. I'm totally used to it.

All this talk about big sales due to surplus, but the deals are shit.

Although if past years are indication, if you need something, now's probably the time, Boxing Day is not a thing anymore.

Tools. Summitt, KMS, Home Depot all have Black Friday Sales.

Milwaukee M12 2.0 amp batteries are $29.99 right now at Home Depot, KMS, and most other supply stores. Regular $59.00 or there abouts.

BTW, Price match is a no go at most places during Black Friday.

Boxing Day is the worst.

Now is the time to get items, if you are looking for something specific.

Thing is, sales are on all the time or at least more often these days that special days like Black Friday and Boxing Day are a thing of the past. Still, it's worth looking into.

I avoid shopping during sales, empty bank account syndrome activates

With that said, my tv is on its way out, so I blew my load on a 65 Samsung for 800$ .....an incredible, mouth watering 100$ in savings
Il check back on boxing day to find out if I could have saved an extra 100$ by waiting for x weeks

I peruse RedFlagDeals for unadvertised deals and go from there, but for the past 2 years I find most of the electronics deals start happening a week or two before Black Friday. There were some deals this year including a price-error 65" LG C2 TV for $1,700 with 11% Rakuten Cashback, $695 on a Philips 3200 Super Automatic Espresso Machine, along with other general laptop / PC deals.

On-line lots, but locally, no.

Magic Box has a Boxing Day Sale, but not Black Friday. GoGo Hobbies has good prices all year round. The owner, Cam passed away last year, but friends are keeping the place running. I'd check them out if you haven't already. Good people.

Sorry I'm not much help in the area of RC's.

So I guess Saturday is Shaturday?

RE: Black Friday, if anyone is into musicianing, Long & MacQuade has used stock blowouts for all their stores.

https://promo.long-mcquade.com/?f=140&s=LW21&l=0

i.e., A $4000 Roland stage piano for $1999

This will take you to the Vancouver store but there's a drop down at top-left to take you to other instore specials.

Yes, you'll pay taxes on used items, but you'll also get warrantee from 6 months to 1 year depending on what you're buying.

It has basically come to that now, and lots of retailers are either saying prices will not be lower on BF, or that they will refund any price difference if BF price was cheaper than their month-long BF sale.

As MG1 has already mentioned, we are having more sales more frequently nowadays, and the dramatic effect of BF / Boxing Day have really become a thing of the past. It's difficult to say which way makes for a more enjoyable consumer experience though. But I suspect that for the retailers, more frequent sales at less than spectacular prices are probably better off for their bottom line.

I agree, all this talk about supply surplus and massive sales this year as a result of retailers buying too much stock post COVID was all BS?

Gotta have more vinyl, lol. Although, I've been hopping onto the SACD bandwagon as of late.

I have a good collection of DVD-Audio, but too few players can read them. The Alpine F#1 Status in the car can as well as the Sony UBP-X800M2 in the media room. However, the source material is nearly extinct. I have not seen any DVD-Audio produced in the last 15 years? Lol. SACD's have won the battle. Having said that, I've been getting SACD's through MoFi (Mobile Fidelity Sound Labs). The guys who produce the Direct from Masters stuff. Their LP's are the best of the best. No Black Friday sale. They don't need to get into it. Their stuff is in huge demand. In fact, their limited production copies (analog and digital) go for like hundreds of dollars on the market. Some, you cannot get at any price. I'm awaiting Michael Jackon's Thriller on SACD from MoFi. Got this last year. https://mofi.com/products/mfsl45ud1s...pm_2lp_box_set

https://mofi.com

As posted previously................ somewhere on RS.
