Not as Black Saturday

This may be the first time ever I got up early for Black Friday. Setting my alarm for the crack of 9am, after a few snoozes I got out of here around 10ish. I visited Hastings and Wal-Mart. I didn’t actually get any gifts, but I got some stuff I wanted. As far as the gifts go, no one’s told me what they want yet. What, am I supposed to guess? Pbht.

Hastings had every used 40% off, including Blu-Ray which they usually exclude from their used sales. I picked up several titles – notably Sherlock Holmes and Nightmare on Elm Street (the new one) for $7 and How to Train Your Dragon for $12. Hrm, that’s a weird mix isn’t it.

Heading to Wal-Mart I was saddened to find the wireless router I’d intended to get my Grandmother was sold out. Something about a sale starting at 5am. Picked up a few more titles there, including a replacement Smallville season 1 (shut up), my original copy’s box was damaged from a water heater leak. I also scored on Red Dead Redemption for $29. Amusingly, I ran into a friend from work there, he looked tired… something about 5 day old twins.

The best deal of the day though was probably Mad Men at Amazon. They had season’s 1-3 blu-ray for $9.99. Yay!

So what did you get? Any fights with competitive shoppers?

  1. Ok here's my story. Target offered the entire Lord of the Rings series on Blu for 7.99 which to my suprise was online at 11pm west coast time on thanksgiving. I know I know don't get into I will have to buy them again at some point since the it's not the director's cut or some shit. So I ordered it and my Black shopping was done. Well 2 days later I get an email from target that goes something like this: Fuck You we cancelled the order. I read into that We realized that we were selling the entire 75.00 set for 7.99 and not just Lord of the Rings. All I have to say to that is Fuck off and Die Target I also hate that bitch I have seen on TV for the past week talking about your 3 fucking am sale.
