Other than limited quantity doorbusters there hasn't been a reason to go into a store for BF in at least a decade.

Those deals are pretty weak this year probably because online shopping has decimated the need to shop at a brick and mortar.

The truth is. the black friday deals are no longer deals. They are basic everyday sales or they are selling things like big screen TV's that are a year or so old. Not that it matters unless you're really into TV's and all the specifics. if you just want yourself a 4k tv on the cheap. you can get a nice deal on that right now. no need to wait for the fake black friday sells.

and whoever is going out there and buying stuff is just doing it to be apart of something. otherwise there is no logical reason to go out there and deal with the madness when you can get those same deals and better online(especially on Cyber monday when the real deals kick in.)

The worse thing to happen to black friday was the internet/social media where everyone knows about it. there is no way that these stores can provide those good old super sells they use to with the entire planet knowing that these items are on super sell. and now that the stores knows its just a FAD. they are abusing people with that idea in mind and marking up prices, then throwing black friday sell on them too(which is illegal but they do it anway.. old school circuit city did that for decades and finally got caught before they went BR.)

exactly. It's a fad at this point. people do it to be apart of something. I remember the last time my older bro hit me up " you ready to make that Camarillo run? everyone knows thats the outlets and on black friday it should be super deals. but from the previous years lackluster deals but super long lines. I told him "make that run to get What?"

He replied yep, you're right. why waste that trip. If we just want to hang we can just hang out. no need to lie to ourselves as if we're getting real deals on that day.

The internet has really killed the surprise and the actual deals out there.

There is no hype like it used to be.

All these stores go black friday two to three times a year. L
Advertising doorbusters when they are barely good deals at all.

Really takes the air out of black friday.

Bye.

Black Friday worked in the past because tech was super expensive....getting a laptop for around $200 when the price of entry was around $500 was unheard of. These days you can probably get a throw away laptop for that price. Would you freeze your butt off to save 50-100 bucks? Probably not.

Yet people still willing to stand in line at Walmart and risk getting trampled. Watching these YT videos has almost become a holiday tradition for me.

So supposedly Lowe’s is having their black Friday “sales” all month. This little black and decker blower/vacuum/mulcher caught my eye. Apparently the deal is so good you have to add it to your cart just to see it.

I add it and it comes out to $50. Seems worth it it had good reviews. Then I decided to amazon and they have the same model for $5 cheaper and not any sale lol.

SMH ordered it prime and it’ll be here tomorrow haha

I wouldn't but a lot of people will.

Slap the term "Black Friday sale" on an item and people go crazy.

Black Friday sucks, but I'm going to see if there are any Cyber Monday deals for electronics. I'm looking for a high end digital piano (doesn't seem like the kind of thing that goes on sale but you never know?) and an iPad (mostly to read sheet music lol). It's just price shopping

I'd love to know what you find! I've been thinking of getting a decent one for myself to get back playing again. No clue what's good and what not.

For sure. Black Friday deals aside, I think the best cheap keyboard you should look into is the Yamaha P-135, or maybe the P-45.
The P-45 is sort of a barebones version of P-135 with similar key action but it's lacking in polyphony (# of notes you can play simultaneously via sustain pedal... it's 64 though so it's good enough unless you're advanced), some sound options, etc.
The P-135 is the latest in the line that I have right now (I have the P-105, they've since released 115, 125, and now 135), and it's probably the most complete entry keyboard you can get. For me the most important thing is the key action and it served me well enough for a long while, but I've been taking lessons on a grand and this just isn't cutting it for me anymore.
If you get beyond this price point I think Kawai and Roland keyboards start making sense. I'm looking at getting the Kawai ES8 which retails for ~$1800-2000 so I'm hoping for some kind of Black Friday deal on one.

I should also mention if you want to gig or something another keyboard might make sense, maybe even a MIDI controller. Then again, the P-series is pretty portable in its own right.

(Also it goes without saying but head over to a music store and test play any piano you're debating buying.)

Walmart was selling the new 2018 iPads for 80 bucks off. 250 for the base 32gb model, iirc. Decent deal if you need one.

Couldn't find any MCU movies on sale but Best Buy has some great BF prices on Blu Rays and UHD movies with free shipping.
