In a couple of weeks we celebrate Thanksgiving. That special Thursday in America each year where we give thanks for the following weekend’s shopping frenzy. The Friday following Thanksgiving is therefor known as “Black Friday”.
That’s right. For one weekend each year people lose their minds completely and run up untold credit card bills which they will spend the next year trying to pay off so that they can do it all over again.
Since the retailers know this, they all want to be the first on people’s shopping list, so in order to lure shoppers to their stores they put “limited quantities” of things on sale for stupid cheap prices.
There are a few web sites that get their hands on retailer’s advertising in advance and post it on the web. This way you can preview it before hand and attempt to plan out a strategy to get your hands on some cheap bounty.
Of course, this also means that everyone else is doing the same thing, but we’ll ignore that fact and stick to our perfect world fantasy!
