Are Black Friday Deals Really Worth It?

To some, it's everybody's favorite date of the year.

Especially since the economy is suffering now a days. And it's no secret that the economy is not in a great shape. People will take any chance they can do.. not only buy gifts to others but treat themselves to gifts.And to some people it's hard to just ignore them because of the massive advertising and media frenzy that everything is on sale, you can save big money in the Friday after the holiday.But in order to take full advantage of door busting deals, you must wake up early, early morning be there waiting in line, in the cold, and sometimes some people don't even bother to eat breakfast.... what a sacrifice! There are numbers of websites and start up company to help you save a lot of cash. You can check a list of website to help you find the latest deal products like promo, discounted, coupon and so fort. For me, buying on online like in Amazon, E-bay and to other online store is far better than the store retailer. I do not have to deal with the colds, the crowds, the pushing, the shoving and general hysteria. Let me tell you something, I have friends who already have an experienced of this kind of shopping. He was brought to the hospital because he collapsed and this was not a joke...it really happened. So,why would I have to give up a vacation to day, when I can order online while I stay home with my family? Which are one of the few days that you could only spend with your family after months of working. Ordering on line at home, you just sitting in front of a computer. All you have to do is just click there and there until you find products that has a good deal. I would suggest to people not to shop in retailer stores on Black Friday. Is it worth it to you? Deals online are almost as good if you look at them as a whole compared to the retail stores. No gas and no more time to spend on a multiple shopping trips during the holiday.

Have you ever thought that actually everyday is Black Friday during the holidays. If you could only save... lets say $50.00 on the sale of the product you purchased on Black Friday, sales in a retail store for me is not really worth it.

I can understand why most people would take advantage of shopping on Black Friday due to the mass advertisements and so forth. Is it really actually worth waking up at the crack of dawn for?.But for me personally, shopping online is the way to go.. Sales and discounts are abundant all year round “if” you are actively searching for it. And I am one of them.

Crowds don't really bother me but I also don't want to get in line at 12 Midnight to save $100 since you can find these deals all over the internet for the most part

Your last paragraph says it all to me. Crowds never really bothered me in the past. Now days I really like to not have to deal with them. Old age? :)
