Black Friday Buys!

Post by Triton » Fri Nov 27, 2009 8:29 am

Post what you got, what you missed out on, and your general experiences on black friday 2009!

I went with 3 friends, left my house at 3:30am. we went to walmart which was ALREADY a madhouse. 2 stayed at walmart and did their shopping, me and my friend derek went to target. got there around 4:10, waited in line outside (a balmy twenty-five degrees Fahrenheit) until the store opened at 5. i bought a 1tb western digital external HDD for 65$ including tax, he bought 2. then we got the hell out of there!

I ordered an Antec 300 and a couple 70CFM@19db Cooler Master 120mm fans from NewEgg. The case was $35 (after $20 MIR), and the fans were $10 each, so basically they were free. 8) Free shipping on everything, too!

$31 at Target. I wanted Seasons 1-3 but I'm pretty sure they were out by 6am. I didn't want to go exploring through the madhouse in Electronics so I grabbed what I could.

Success! An evening run yielded season 1-3 :mrgreen:



And sort of related, I grabbed some numbers from the Target I work at:

Overall, the store took in $506,256.73 as of 31 minutes before closing. Subtract out returns, discounts, and gift card sales gets a total net sales of $439,378.88. I believe a normal "good" day is 100k.

I happened to be working at Starbucks tonight. Over there, we got $2,353.37 total, $2,174.80 net, and 401 transactions. A normal good day over there is ~$700 and maybe 100 transactions.

I snagged the following crap for cheap today...

East Bound & Down Season 1 (DVD) - $10
Wolverine (Blu-ray) - $10
Fast & Furious (Blu-ray) - $10
Wanted (Blu-ray) - $13
Command & Conquer Red Alert 3 (X360) - $7
24 Pack of Coke - $6 (Well, I did BUY this today so what the heck.)

Also, went to the Tilted Kilt where I had food served to me that made me ill. It was served by quite the hot, voluptuous waitress so it still ended up as a win in my book.

The end.

I missed out on my Djembe. =( They sold out in 4 different store in the first 2 hours.
A truly wise man can entertain a thought without accepting it. A fool cannot withhold past judgments but instead closes his mine to new possibilities. Someone who wants to innovate simply needs to forget what everyone says isn't possible.

Bah! I always forget to check Steam for game deals!

I almost went. I was going to go to Staples for a $40 chair, but we were going on a trip that day, and leaving early, so I couldn't go :cry:

Edit: Another page break? :/
