Each year I dread what comes the day after Thanksgiving. I have only gone out one time for Black Friday, and that was last year. That trip was strictly a favor for someone because I had a truck that they needed to use. With the holidays coming my wife is continually on the computer looking up Black Friday ads. She also loves looking for sales.
She found one of the more popular Black Friday sites and started looking through the specials. She always checks Target coupons on a regular basis. She found one or two things that are the same price either way you purchase.
Some retailers just don’t realize that their specials are almost their everyday price. Best Buy is doing a IPhone special. $99 when you sign a new contract for 2 years. Well… That is the same deal if I go there right now and purchase.
Here is my advice… Stop trying to rip everyone off, and just take care of the customers the right way.
When I was a child I don’t remember hearing of half of these “Shopping Days” that have been coming up. I know that Black Friday has been around forever. The other ones seem to be appearing continuously. There is the online version of Black Friday… Pink Friday. I just read about another that I have never heard of that is Green Monday.
Why can’t retailers just leave everything alone and run the specials without all these wacky names?
My wife always tells me that I’m a hard person to buy gifts for. Our little one made some suggestions to her. Well maybe she can keep taking some tips from my little one. This past fathers day she got me a few reward cards for all kind of stuff. With my birthday and Christmas coming up I wouldn’t mind a few more. I think it was a great idea that my little one had. With all the diffrent gift cards they have out they make great gifts for anyone, and any occasion. You can find them in most stores anywhere making them easy to get.
