    I guess black Friday lost its charm. People used to buy more stuff, but now they tend to buy what they need more than what it's cheap or on sale.

    The only thing I bought was Nescafe gold coffee pods. I didnt buy anything this year cause I was saving money for an expo I'm going to next weekend. If I can find them I'll be getting some musk turtles or a king/milksnake.

    just one thing really: 1tb micro sd card for $200 (free shipping). my item hasn't shipped yet, but amazon has already taken the money out for it. I returned my original card, since it was free shipping for returns. I had bought it for $300, but I found a better deal. they were selling 1TB micro sd cards for $200 for about 20 hours or maybe something like that. my current switch card only has 4GBs left on it. anyway, I'm a little apprehensive, because I have a feeling they may have sold more than they had, then I'd be out for a card I need.

    speaking of whether or not black Friday is still great, I'd say yes. however, it's more about being at the computer for good sales now rather than relying on finite space if you go to a store. plus, black Friday where I live was a very cold, rainy day. I wouldn't be camping out under those conditions.

    It kinda sucked this year. I only got a pair of earphones and some games on Steam. I would also get the Steam Controller but it was constantly out of stock and shipping was literally double the price.

    A few things, kindle oasis 3 and a case, two echo show 5's, and a gold shovel knight amiibo.
    Was going to get a 400GB msd but prices were not good.

    I don't because stupid people are at Black Friday shopping grab anything they could like they are an animals. Online is better and less violence and less crowd.

    Yes, but in a very sideways way.

    My 3 years old SONY Bravia TV decided to die just the day before this whole "cyber-week" / black friday shit started, and it dies in some very software "programmed obsolescence" fashion. I know you couldn't take this seriously from someone wearing a tinfoil hat, but I smell foul play here.

    So I ended up getting an LG C9 for "black friday" and I am kind of annoyed enough with SONY to skip buying from them for the next 10 generations or so.

    PS: of course I buy online, I wouldn't get out of my cave to fight with smelly misbehaved fanatics over the last box or so in a stupid overcrowded sale.

    I forgot
    Ordered a 43" LG 4K HDR TV, to replace the super old 32" 1080p one in my bedroom. Was $230, which is pretty ok these days.

    And then ordered 5 different custom canvas prints to add some family pictures to the house for a whopping $54 ish.

    And that was it. I don't usually buy into the whole black Friday craze, cuz the deals are barely ever good unless their shit quality products or old stock that needs to be gotten rid of.
