Black Friday

Even though I am away from home, I have still been doing some of our household Christmas shopping (as has Cindy back at home). I bought one special item in the French Quarter last week, but so far the rest of my shopping has been done my favorite way; online.

This Friday is Black Friday, the one single day in the year that generally puts retailers "in the black" for their fiscal year because of the holiday sales they offer to consumers who are beginning or continuing their shopping for Christmas. Typically, the sales will begin anywhere from midnight to 9am, with shoppers lining up in cold, dark parking lots waiting for the brick and mortar stores to open their doors for business.

I hate that and have only done it once; 7 years ago when Cindy wanted to get a specific item from a specific place. We haven't done it since. If I have anything to say about it, we won't ever do that again.

On Black Friday Amazon.com won't have a cold, dark parking lot to line up in, but they will have a bunch of great deals to help you and your family and friends get holiday shopping done for less. This year they've created a special Black Friday page for holiday shoppers that you can get to by clicking here. Amazon.com will be offering hourly deals from 6am to 6pm PST along with thousands of products on sale for a limited time. Also, customers will get gift wrapping for $.99 per item. So, don't fight the crowds when you can shop online at Amazon.com from the comfort of your own homes.

Also, just a reminder, if you're shopping at Amazon.com at ANY time, using the link at the bottom of the right column will help this site.

FYI - You can view the Black Friday store ads at www.theblackfriday.com or www.blackfriday.info and though I don't know for sure, I hear the same deals will be available for online shoppers the same time as those shopping live and in person.
