Question So, does anyone bother with the whole Black Friday thing anymore?

I haven't gone out and gotten Black Friday stuff for years, myself. If it's not available online, still on sale days after, or something at Walmart that my sister-in-law (who works there) can pick up for me, it won't get purchased.

I did have her grab a few games for me, but that's it. No major purchases this year, online or otherwise. I'm not even sure if there are any Cyber Monday things I'm interested in, but then I haven't really looked.

Its not nearly as big of a thing in Canada (because its just another friday for us) its really no different than any other store sale from what I have seen. And its very rarely ever a one day thing. Most places with have a "Black Friday" sale that lasts all week. Its really just an excuse to have a sale and drum up traffic up here.

Sometimes you will find an abnormally good deal on something but its hardly the "line up outside the store an hour early and choke your neighbour into unconsciousness" deal that you guys have down there.

...I only shop online for black Friday/cyber Monday now. My wife and I haven't stood in those lines for over a decade and we don't miss it. I usually stock up on blu-rays or grab a few games, but rarely anything major. Our best score his year was a nice stand mixer.

I think the whole Black Friday thing is antiquated now.

Internet shopping is more prevalent than ever and malls are dying off. Most companies now just have week long sales and still just call it "Black Friday" pricing or most retail stores just open Thursday at 5pm rather than opening the floodgates for a midnight rush.

10 years ago I used to stand in the lines until I realized that the things I wanted were not even doorbusters and I could go whenever I wanted. This year I ordered things online and picked them up when they were ready without any lines. I saved over $200.

1TB PS4 Console - $200
Rise of the Tomb Raider - $20
Resident Evil 7 - $20
Wolfenstein: The New Colossus - $25
Wolfenstein: The Two Pack - $15
Doom - $15
Bioshock: The Collection - $15

I think there was one time I might have gone out shopping, on Black Friday, but it was because of a basic necessity we needed. I think it was in the evening too, so the madness had long since past.

I just look for deals online during Black Friday, Cyber Monday, etc. Although the online shopping is starting to get ridiculous too. I've seen some sites promote "Cyber Sunday" as a thing now, and I think other places started going "Pre-Black Friday" deals.

I don't think I have done Black Friday. I may have gone in the afternoon to a store, but I hated every bit of it. If that counts, then I guess once.

I don't care for Cyber Monday either. It's all just a shit show now. You'll have Spring Black Friday in a few months at some places.

Thought about how I should have gone and bought external harddrives on that day because I'm sure there were some crazy deals online.

Never did it, never will. I've seen enough YouTube videos of massive crowds stampeding into stores, trampling over anyone foolish enough to trip during the initial rush, and also fools fighting over stuff like towels to ever bother with it. I love being an Amazon addict. Everything is just a simple mouse click away and stuff gets delivered quickly.
