Re: The modern day black friday

Black Friday is something my wife and I do together as a "Date night" type thing. It was a great form of bonding to have us both bundled up under blankets in the cold in line, talking strategy, working as a team to find items in the store, and then taking a break with an early morning IHOP...

Recommendations for Smart Phone

I used to have an Android waaay back but switched over to the iPhones because I had issues with Android being stuck on their system upgrades over different versions of their phone OS. Fast forward to today and I'm now ready to leave iPhones and return to Android, if there is a good alternative. Look...

Re: What are you hoping for this Black Friday?

Looking for deals on Fitness apparel for us and Hot Wheels, Nerf, and Building toys for my son. My daughter has yet to show any serious interest in anything.

I'm also hoping for less people in my way at 3am but that's pretty much a lost cause these days.

Re: What are you tweenage daughters asking for this year

my 11yr daughter wants a smart phone for christmas. I think we are going to wait until she turns 12 in July before she goes into the 7th grade. So with that, not sure what she wants. She hasn't gotten into makeup yet (thank god) but she's out of normal toys and dolls. She mainly likes "screens&...

Re: T-Shirt voting 2018!

Decent designs this year, although it seems like the same ole "shopping cart" design gets picked every year.

I like the 70s option the best. If I had to go with a shopping cart shirt, it would be the Retro

Re: Okies

I'm not going to skip Thanksgiving dinner. Just not going to happen. So these Thanksgiving openings do not apply to me and day before sales just make Black Friday meaningless. Might as well go back to work on Black Friday if I can get all my deals before Friday.

Re: Do you trust online reviews?

I use Amazon as a measuring stick but I also check NewEgg and CNET or the like. When on Amazon, you need to weed out the outliers. Those who hate things they don't understand and those who comment 5 stars on everything, as they may be paid to do so and not actually a true reviewer.

The ice and blackouts across Oklahoma kind of ruined our Black Friday but we did manage to grab these deals before the power went out.

Re: 5 Facts About Black Friday ‘Deals’ Stores Hope You’ll Ne

I've pretty much understood this to be true for the last couple of years. It's why I get as much of the kids shopping done before BF and then I get a deal on video games or something for the wife that we want RIGHT NOW. Black Friday is pretty much just getting a gifts for someone outside my immediat...

Re: Help PLSE Computer is this a good deal? THX

It looks like the weakness in this is graphics so if you are looking to play some graphic heavy games it may not be so good.

However, as cinemike said, for the money it's a pretty good deal

Re: Okies

Have any of you Okies doorbusted ToysRUs in the past year or two? We've avoided ever since they went with the 6pm and earlier opening times, but their doorbusters are actually pretty good this year. How early should you be there to be within the first 100 people? Used to when it was 10pm and later, ...
