I don't usually go shopping on Black Friday. It just seems like way too much of a hassle to me. So seeing as how I haven't been participating in the event for a while, I've apparently lost sight of the incredible savings one can achieve through a 12-hour wait in line. I recently read in the paper that some people were able to get their hands on whole computer systems for just $200. That includes tower, monitor, keyboard, mouse, and maybe even printer.
To me, that is unbelievable. Way better than the best deals I've ever seen. Of course, I'm assuming the stuff is relatively new. It goes without saying that similar deals can be found with obsolete models.
As soon as I read about that one deal, it all began to make sense. Waiting in line to shop is like waiting in line for concert tickets, or waiting to sign up for that really great course taught by that really attractive professor. It isn't just mob shopping. There are deals to be had!
So now I've got next year's Black Friday all mapped out. I'll skip Thanksgiving dinner so I can get in line early…If you enjoyed this post, I'd be delighted to have you as a subscriber to my RSS feed.
