 Black Friday
Topic Originator: Captain Desmond Fancey  
Date:   Fri 23 Nov 12:38

Seems the days of people knocking seven shades out of each other in Tesco to grab Blaupunkt tellies are over. However, anybody manage to snag any decent bargains either online or in store today ?

Whilst things are quieter in UK stores, looks like in some places the lunatics have taken over the asylum though.

Got a Dolce Gusto Coffee machine for £39.99 from Amazon. Was looking at the same one a couple of months ago in a shop for £110. So pretty happy.

I think folk have realised that a lot of the marketing hype over here really is just hype and as has been publicised on the news quite a bit, a lot of the deals aren't all that.

There's still bargains kicking about but it's not like the US where some of the deals are ridiculous.

I've not had a proper look yet but my girlfriend is excited about finding Brecon Botanicals Gin for £16 on Amazon. It's a good gin and normally sells for a bit more so she's happy.

Can't stand the Americanisation of our culture and our language- anyone who indulges in so called " Black Friday" hype is utterly gullible.

It wouldn't have been so bad if we were getting the kind of deals the Americans get but it really is a marketing exercise.

Heard on Radio 1 news yesterday that a survey showed that in 90% of all Black Friday deals the same items were available at the same price or lower at other points within the same year.

To be fair Black Friday has always existed here but it invariably involved loads of folk who never go out, all going out on the same Friday and then getting nuggets and scrapping each other.

Picked up a Vax slimline hoover thingy at 'er indoors behest in Lidl's this morning, a Black Friday special apparently - significant queue at the door for 8am opening.

I got the last one - the Toshiba 43" HD tellies at £199 went even faster.

I picked up a half decent hooker for the evening for just 17 quid. I'm a bit itchy now though😐

December 21st. The day folk who go out twice a year are absolutely burst by 6pm

I'll avoid, thank you

"I picked up a half decent hooker for the evening for just 17 quid. I'm a bit itchy now though😐"

I'd have thought a scrum half was more your type ?
