    gearing up for Black Friday

    Retailers get ready for Black Friday

    Battle-hardened shoppers will be part of the hustle and bustle at many retailers this Friday, the day after Thanksgiving that typically kicks off the holiday-shopping season. It's known as Black Friday because that's when many retailers turn black for the year.

    how many of you folks will head out bright & early Friday morning?

    They couldn't pay me to go shopping on Friday or any day between now and Christmas.
    What few gifts I haven't already bought, I will order over the Internet or the phone.

    No way jose!!! I think its absolutely ridiculous! Id rather just spend the extra couple dollars on a regular shopping day then go through that mess! Parking, lines, dressing rooms...that would drive me nuts.

    Not me! I have to work tomorrow and Thursday, and Friday is my first day off (until Tuesday) and I will be sleeping in with DD! And even if it was my 12th day off in a row (or something, lol) I wouldn't. Nope.

    lol, you sound like me, although i WILL have to hit 1 store (it's in the mall, ugh) betw now & Christmas, for a gift card.....the other cards i'll give as gifts (2 or 3) will be picked up at the local Walgreens or Kroger....i love that these two stores have a GREAT selection of gift cards from all over...restaurants gift cards, dept store cards, gas cards, etc...i too, have picked up a few things already & am so glad i did....

    other than the gift cards, i'll also shop online too...love it!
    it's so easy.....

    i know a lady i use to work with...she lives for "Black Friday".....her & 3 or 4 of her friends take their cell phones & split up in diff directions at the malls...it's like a treasure hunt for them....i know a few others that will be out bright & early Friday....i must admit, some of them DO get some pretty good deals.....it's just not my 'thang' though.....

    LOL, I buy cards at Walgreen's or Kroger's too!
    And I have had a Hallmark rewards card ( whatever they are called now) since they started their rewards program.

    I prefer to order gifts online or via phone from a catalog anyway. I've loved catalog shopping since I was a tiny girl and used to pick out the Barbies and other dolls and toys I wanted from the Sears catalog!
    I am older, but still love catalog shopping.The Internet just makes it easier.

    I love black Friday. My best friend and I used to get up and be at the mall or certain specialty stores when they opened. Then people started spending the night in their cars in order to get the 'deals' first and it proved too painful to join them. lol My early morning shopping ended with that. I still shop black Friday specials but I go to less crowded strip malls or individual stores.

    I don't like to shop on any day. I wouldn't be caught dead out on Black Friday. OTOH, my dh loves to go shopping anytime, especially Black Friday and the day after CHristmas. So I just give him my list.

    Check out www.bfads.net


    It has adscans of all the advertisements. Click adscans in the top right, and when the list of stores display, right click the zip or pdf file and choose "save as" and then open. Otherwise, your computer might freeze up if you just try to open it first.

    Best Buy has some incredible deals on laptops!!!!!

    I'm almost done shopping and I've done it all online. No way would I go to the mall on Friday, it'll be crazy. And I tend to steer clear of Walmart this time of year. I do love Target though, but Ill just go during the work week when no one is there.

    There's no way I'll be out shopping on Friday. All the toys are just crap from China anyway, and I only shop for the kids.

    Good for them, but I bought a new laptop a year ago, right before Vista came out. I did not feel like participating in Bill Gates' social experiment, again.........
