Black Friday 2013

I usually don't do the whole Black Friday thing, but last year I got really lucky and got the one last gift I needed for my daughter (much later in the day, I might add) on sale.

 

I'm thinking about going out this year for a couple things and want to know if anyone knows what the scoop is on Black Friday deals this year. I just saw that Old Navy is giving away a million bucks to one lucky person this year (out of the first 500 in line at EVERY store - seems like QUITE a long shot!). Does Sephora usually have good sales? What madhouses do you girls plan on making an appearance to (if any) this year?

Re: Black Friday 2013

I went out on Black Friday maybe two years ago and it was nuts! But everywhere I went didn't have a line, except in checkout. But I only went to Kohl's and Gamestop. Everywhere else I went to during the day (though I don't remember if I actually went anywhere else.

 

But I normally check out online ads and deals first. I normally stalk this website to see if there's anything I like:

Thanks! I look there too but didn't even bother yet because I didn't think anything would be on there. Yay :smileyhappy:

The image of Black Friday deals are from last year, so you probably won't see that this year, fyi.

I love this topic! I have never actually gone out on black Friday after seeing the massive chaos commending and people actually dying and getting hurt but I other stores it seems to be that people are calmer and more controlled so maybe I will try it, but when I go out there I want to see some massive sales not just 20% off!

Love your name! haha. Yeh, it's gotta be a substantial discount, however my hubby needs a new iPod since he broke his while deployed so that's something I might have to fight for if they have a really good deal on 'em (I'm not working so my money is TIGHT lol). Even 20% off that would be worth it to me I think, but things that aren't as expensive, pshhhh. Fah-get about it.

Re: Black Friday 2013

I prefer the online specials. I really have no interest in anything that involves standing in line all night in a parking lot in freezing weather. last year I went to target t-day evening and got a fire pit when they opened. There was an orderly line to get in a few minutes after opening. This year I am off work on Friday and my kids are with their dad so I might be willing to get up early to go to kohls or old navy for a few things.  But no camping out.  

 

 

I also also like to check out the ads online early. there are a few websites that seem to get the information weeks in advance. 

 

I need a new lappy so hoping for a deal on that.

I agree, I don't think I would ever wait in line!

I'm a tech geek, so my Black Friday's are usually reserved for online shopping(NewEgg/Amazon-oh YEA!!). The only place I've ever been to is Best Buy to grab random electronics & games. This year I MAY venture into Macy's and Sephora. MAYBE.

Re: Black Friday 2013

Last year, Sephora had a decent selection of $10 deals, both online and in store. I found a picture of last year's deals, in case you were wondering what kind of deals they have.

Re: Black Friday 2013

Everyone realizes these are from last year right? Beethousand stated it was last year but I'm not sure everyone understood.

I might have to pick up that Too Faced kit! You can't beat $10, and I've wanted to try the chocolate Soleil bronzer for a while now but didn't want a full size, that set is perfect!

Re: Black Friday 2013

I work on Black Fridays, but not until 10 in the morning, so I usually stay up and snag any online door busters I cannot live without.  I don't enjoy fighting for purchases, and I'm not going to wait an hour to check out.  I usually watch Target, Walmart, Amazon, Sephora, Ulta, and any other sites that have already advertised something on a list.  I prefer my pjs over the public any day.  :smileywink:

Yeah, I'm with you gals for the most part. If I find somewhere that has the main gifts I need to buy for a seriously discounted price, I'll probably make an attempt but if not, there's no point at all. I can't stand large crowds & being around people who push and shove and don't say excuse me.. kind of infuriates me lol. I try to stick to cyber Monday if at all possible too.

Re: Black Friday 2013

I never camp, but I always go later that day, after the madness has settled down

Re: Black Friday 2013

I can't deal with the crowds, so I do my Black Friday shopping online -- Amazon and Sephora are the ones I look out for. Sometimes later in the afternoon (when the hardcore crowds have died down a bit) I'll head to Target and see if I can find anything good.

Re: Black Friday 2013

I used to work retail and hated Black Friday. I avoid any type of store on Black Friday. And a lot of those so called "deals" are limited (only 5 TV's available at advertised price). I rather shop on-line for Black Friday & Cyber Monday.
