Or is this a more accurate depiction?

Yes, I suppose my complaint is that people rinse, wash, and repeat.

And are the sales really worth all that? No seriously. I've never been.

I'm actually sorely tempted to partake in Black Friday. I want a good deal on an HDTV.

I won't do any of the bullshit like going there at midnight on Thanksgiving or camp outside the front door... but If I could pay less than $200 for a decently sized HDTV? I'll consider it.

As someone who pays attention to these things, Black Friday is NOT the time to buy the good stuff. Once upon a time, savings were massive (like, when HDTVs were new and cost thousands and you could save a grand or two on doorbusters). Nowadays, you'll probably save a hundred or two at best. Black Friday is a more of a legacy affair these days - people think the deals are better than they are because they were legitimately killer deals once upon a time and retailers prey on that misguided nostalgia.

Black Friday is typically the day when retailers offer shit-brand HDTVs for cheap, or offer decent brands in water-downed models (for instance, many doorbusters are special SKUs differing from standard models, for example by having one less HDMI port than the standard SKU or similar neutering). The final week before Xmas is usually when the GOOD TVs are sold for good prices, because that's when they get desperate enough to offer legit good deals and do their final push for sales. The TVs on sale that week usually won't be as cheap as the Black Friday prices, but they're usually better bang-for-the-buck.

If you still want to brave the Black Friday jungle (or better yet - buy online), here's a list of all the brands, stores and prices for sale that day. In fact, even if you decide to hold off on Black Friday, keep an eye on that website since it's fucking amazing at notifying you of deals on anything and everything and makes Black Friday really pointless. It's definitely a website worth following.

I'm really not picky about my TV's. I just need one between 24" and 30" and I'm also a total cheapskate, so a hundred or two in savings is perfectly fine by me.

I hate Black Friday shopping, but might as well for Christmas gifts and some decent furniture. I'm 4'11", and it's the pits when surrounded by like fifty other women in one teeny little H&M trying to pay, and its extremely hot and smells terrible. Then there are the rude customers, the extremely rude customers and the ones that get fucking violent.

I'd hate to be the workers on Black Friday. Retail work is tough, imagine how rude customers must be on that day?

I've shopped on Black Friday before, a certian part of me came out on that day :stare:

However, I've never been rude or hurrying to the staff.

... I go hunting in such times. You scare the herd. Force them this way and that, until the weak and the fat get left behind. Then you isolate them and you strike. Bag over the head and into the back of the van. 5 hours later your guests(former members of the previous herd) are trying unsuccessfully(except when they joke) to guess what this delicious meat they are eating is.

Apparently people die in the Black Friday sales. You Yanks are crazy-ass consumer motherfuckers. :noes:
