Here in the U.S. many retail stores open up at 5 a.m. and many have special sales that just last for a few hours. In my experience, if you haven’t bought everything you wanted by 8 a.m., you’ve missed the super sales since quantities are usually low and the "mob-factor" is high. A few years back, I decided never to shop on Black Friday again OR do all of my shopping on-line.
Barb and I already bought some cool tech for the kids via on-line retailers; nothing beats getting great deals while shopping in your pajamas while sipping coffee! I can’t share what we bought the kids just yet, they’re savvy-enough to navigate over here. You do know I bought a Zune player (more on that later) and although it doesn’t count as a holiday purchase, I bought an Xbox Live HD video rental. The real question is:
What did YOU buy today? Did you battle the crazy crowds and what was the experience like? What was the best tech deal you found? If you had a bad experience and need some uplifting, just read my Xbox 360 debacle from one year ago; hopefully, your day wasn’t as bad as that one.
