Black Friday Shopping Is Coming

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.

Too Many Different Shopping Days To Remember

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?

Big Screen Offering

This year for Christmas I told my wife not to go crazy with gifts for me.  I told her that I appreciate her, and everything she does for us, and she has done enough.  After she went out on Black Friday she was telling me that she had found a few specials on projectors.  I have wanted one for when we go camping, our backyard, and our back room.  I told her that there is no option to a projector.  You simply need to purchase the right one the first time, or not at all.  I have been installing tvs and stereos for some time, and I simply like the picture on the Samsung projector over most of the other projectors on the market.  I have seem many different manufacturers projectors since doing installations for Circuit City.  Money means everything, and I can’t afford it anyway.  I will continue using my Plasma tvs until they die, and then I will have to see what I can do.  I have always wanted to game in supersize, but always afraid that the picture won’t be to my liking.  I guess there is no way of knowing without trying.
