Black Friday 2019: What are you getting; what have you gotten?

Black Friday sales started early on some sites. What do you want to get or what did you get already?

It seems year after year my wishlist gets smaller. But there are a few things I want to get which prices are still not reflecting Black Friday:

1) A denim jacket (amazon is playing hardball...hurry up and lower it!)
2) Some joggers
3) Some 4K movies

I only bought a leather wallet from Amazon after it dropped a few bucks but I don't think it's going to get any lower.

Nuclear Blast records has some really good sales going on, I picked up some cheap vinyl and CDs from them.

I picked up, well ordered awaiting delivery, components to build a new PC. Online from Newegg.com due to BF "sales" all this week.

Of course, since I rarely purchase larger amounts online my Visa blocked the sale due to possible fraud and I had to spend time on the phone to convince them the purchase was OK. I did call again earlier today to tell them I had an additional $194 order to be placed.

on the NewEgg purchases.

I ordered an X570 motherboard I really don't need, and two Cooler Master AIO liquid coolers that I also don't need at the moment.

I figured I'll find a use for both in the near future, and would otherwise be kicking myself for not picking them up at BF prices.

I am getting . . . . wait for it . . . . . . . ....................................Nothing. I'm done with my Christmas shopping already.

Done with shopping doesn't mean ready, but I bought the stuff I need:

I'm sewing pajama pants for everyone in my immediate family (bought 7 yards of green mountain pattern flannel from the Vermont Flannel Company a month ago--we will all probably look like the family Von Trapp with clothes made from curtains, but it will be fun). For extended family gifts, I bought a bunch of Lands End canvas tote bags when they were on a super clearance sale. I'm going to make and freeze a shit ton of tamales (maybe some with red chili filling, some with green to make it Christmasy) and fill the bags with them as gifts for my siblings and their families. Might enlist my best friend for that--if we're making a couple hundred tamales, might be more fun in a group and with some wine.

Thanks for mentioning this, they do have some really good pricing currently.

Besides media,I have not bought a whole lot on Black Friday in years.
But it has been 5+ years since I bought any type of tv,player,sound bar etc.
Still might hold off on buying any electronics besides a switch and Apple TV4k for the family.

1)$100 App Store & iTunes Gift Code at costco for $79.49
2) warm socks
3) Toaster (used)
4) Toaster oven
5)Maybe a spa from Costco.


Here is a link to the movies I bought.

I’m just doing Record Store Day. Vinyl finally got me past my life-long avoidance of Black Friday.

I got a 5tb external drive from Best Buy for $90. Also planning on picking up a PS4 with Shenmue III.

Thinking about upgrading my iPhone, or getting a new TV, but I'm trying to save money, not add to the bill any more. The iPhone should be a wash bill-wise though.

I just don't really care that much.

I got a crazy deal (price error) on Sony WH-1000XM3 headphones I didn't need. Aside from that, I've almost stopped buying physical media but I'm missing GOT S8 and will probably get Chernobyl BR as well.

I'm considering getting a Flowerpot VROD vaporizer but that will depend on the "discount % to be announced".

I'll go to Target after the rush and pick up whatever DVD/BR movies they have on sale that I want, but don't already have.

Switch stuff for the kid, although it won't technically be on Black Friday. The sale at Meijer stores starts Thanksgiving morning, and I have time to kill before the afternoon family dinner. Their price on joy-cons matches the lowest deal this weekend (yet it's still a lot more than I care to spend on a controller), and they will also have their $19.99 games BOGO, so I hope there are two worth picking up.

I was hoping for a better deal on a beverage refrigerator with a glass door, but I didn't find anything that was appreciably lower than the usual sale prices, and I don't need it right away.

I've picked up a few gift items online that were on sale this week, but I try to avoid the Black Friday hype nowadays. I don't need more e-trash in my life.

Work. Buy. Consume. Die.

I'll probably wander into Walmart Friday morning to see what movies are left. I did that last year and there's one or two that I got. This year will be 4k movies. There's also a coupe other non-movie items I'm eyeing but I expect those to be gone by Friday.
