Black Friday 2021 Sucks !!!! Very Disappointing !!!


The Walmart part is kind of good.

On the day after Thanksgiving, I went out about 5 pm and dropped by DT and picked up some movies.
Looked at some Tvs at Fred Myers and Costco, but just bought some food and vitamins.
Bought some shelving units at Bimart for the garage. The stores were dead the benefit of living in a small town.

I did all my BF shopping last week. I also ordered some movies online (should arrive soon). I was pretty satisfied this year. Really saw no need to go to the store on actual BF.

I was happy with the 4K and video game deals this year. There weren’t many Blu-ray deals, but I did get F9, In The Heights, and Promising Young woman for $5.33 each at Target with the Buy 2 Get 1 Free deal.

Re: Black Friday 2021 Sucks !!!! Very Disappointing !!!

I thought this guy's YT video was kind of interesting and funny. He has one where he and his friend shop at some used movie store, but need to check to see what city it was in and the store's name.

Was happy with the movies I got from Target, Gruv, and Amazon(matching BB) because something still is wrong with my BB account and every order gets canceled.
I really do not need much else plus with inflation hitting and lots of price increase on most everything. Overall BF has been getting worse every year if you believe the folks on SD.

I like that BF now happens almost all month and mostly online. Still looking for a 4k tv and maybe some more security cameras.
Nothing in Tvs I'm looking at screams smoking hot deal.
Also, I buy so many used items from thrift shops etc. But even some thrift shop items are getting crazy high.
But I just shop when they have sales and certain stores still have a reasonable price for used items, sometimes I even find new or never been used items.

I'm mostly annoyed Zombieland DT 4K hasn't dropped to $10 but the double feature BD has dropped several times. Also the Paramount Presents titles aren't dropping; yet that other Eddie Murphy movie in 4K dropped to like $10.

I also checked out a few of the niche label sites' "deals" and they're worthless if you have Amazon prime cause by the time you pay shipping at the smaller sites, you're spending the same amount as you would've on Amazon.

I watch Wetmovie1ís YouTube channel pretty regularly. I havenít watched his Black Friday 2021 video yet, but will eventually.

I will say this is the first year I barely bought anything physical media related. I got a total of three titles (Batman: The Long Halloween Part One and Batman: The Long Halloween Part Two on Blu-ray, and Star Wars- Episode I: The Phantom Menace on 4K).

None of those were actually bought on Black Friday either and were all purchased on Amazon a couple weeks before. There are some okay deals, but nothing has really stood out as a must purchase in my opinion.

Wow. Amazon has another garbage hidden deal. $5 off when you spend $20 on specific titles. Problem is they raised the prices on all of them to make the deal pointless.

Did no shopping at all that weekend- watched over my cat who died on that Sunday. Grateful to the 24/7 emergency vet that was able to take him afterwards.

Was at a Walmart last night though and saw some of the Black Friday promo discs STILL out in January and unwanted. Who would buy the Lord of the Rings/Hobbit set on standard lo-res DVD?

I am sorry for your loss, thatís hard enough without it being around the holidays.


I canít see myself buying the Middle Earth stuff on DVD now, but the slipcovers they have for those sets at Meijer are very eye catching. I can see someone grabbing a cheap set for the vacation home or something.

^/^^ The 3 Hobbits I purchased were the extended versions on blu-ray when each were released, but the Lord of the Rings I bought was the big boxset of the 3 extended versions on DVD, with all the bonus discs. This was before blu-ray was a thing (I'd originally purchased the extended versions on VHS!), I don't feel guilty at all about not owning them on blu-ray, the DVDs look darn good on my upscaling BD player and 65" TV. I'm sure they would look better on BD but I'm happy enough with what I have. Having said all that, if I were to buy them today, I probably wouldn't be buying it/them on DVD.

And yes, Black Friday sucked ass this past year.

Sorry to hear about your cat Alan, it's always hard losing your little buddy.
