Im not following this commercial trend that now have reached sweden for some years now, I will wait for the black 2017 year when we get a new lighwave at a cheap price and cheap updates, it is also possible that I am still in bed not awake ..but dreaming.

So no..I managed to avoid consuming this friday.

its funny, but just had auto email adverts from amazon, lots of kids toys cheaper after black Friday than they were on black Friday, its usually the same with tvs etc here, they sound cheap on the day, but if you look before or after they are usually cheaper anyway because the black Friday sale is based on RRP, but half the time retailers just fool you into there just being a sale 364 days a year, looking around this year I have to say the consumer black Friday in uk is rubbish

I totally agree with this. That's why I shopped from home. Let the people claw and scratch and lose sleep over this. I bought things I would have purchased anyway, but at more than 50% off and all while sipping tea.

I just didn't get the deal I wanted: Moho 12 (formerly Anime Studio Pro) upgrade.

It's the one time of year I can advertise my program (and people kind of tolerate it) without having to come up with a new version or some free content, so I appreciate it. All I have to do is lop a bunch off the price tag. It definitely helps me get through the rest of the year, and I can concentrate more on... making new versions and free content.

Also I get (yet another) new wolf blanket for the year, cheap.

from a psychological point of view, it's quite interesting to see how some people behave in various stores.

as for "Black Friday >Online" i'm very happy we have One day during the year, where we can look at multiple good deals.

Heh. I get what the custom has come to mean to a lot of people in business. Hell, my oldest daughter and her Significant Other run a retail tabletop and card gaming store, and they make serious bank on "Black Friday" which helps with their annual bottom line. I get it.

I'm just personally repulsed by the idea, especially by the visions of throngs of people getting into fistfights over cheap TVs. Outliers, I know, but still. I personally like the ide of National Buy Nothing Day on the Friday after Turkey Day, and I applaud those businesses who decide to keep their doors closed to let their employees have an extra day with their families. I don't judge those who feel differently, and we all have our way. Wins all around. :D

The online retail arena has made a huge difference to the way the day plays out, and I also get and appreciate that.

Like anything, some people will misuse it, but I think it's good overall. Win/win for consumers and businesses.
