having seen the egg's BF deals, i'm now simply waiting for Cyber Monday LOL...
Final Black Friday deals announced:
Nothing show stopping I'm afraid, although a Corsair 500R case for $70AR is pretty great if you're looking for a case.
BF has become a joke. Every store and their mother has a BF sale. Mattress stores with "doorbuster" deals! lol please because people are lining up to bust down the door of a mattress store! Car dealerships advertising super door buster BF sales for prices you can get any other time of year. It's all marketing hoopla.
BF has become pretty much wait on line all day to get a cheap TV and while you are here buy some other garbage we have too! Some websites had some okay deals and the really good deals were sold out in minutes (probably only very little stock to entice you to their site in hopes you buy other junk) and Cyber Monday has become let's extend the sale of crap we couldn't sell on BF.
BF has become, for me anyway, the day I go to best buy later in the day when there are no lines and I pickup some Bluray movies for cheap. I'm done holding out for super phantom deals that just don't happen anymore.
Re-read what you wrote from a retailer's perspective. Perfect for them. That's why these happen.
You would think that but if you do a check of the numbers black friday sales figures are not as great as they have been in the past.
Of course many factors do contribute to that like the economy, unemployment figures, and the fact that consumers are not getting the same kind of sales that used to happen on BF. Many factors at work here. From the consumer standpoint though BF sales used to be much better than they currently are.
