I'm kind of hating myself for considering this…

    @Eckle:  Yeah I’d do the online thing!  $40 is worth keeping my morals and being able to sleep at night IMO 🙂

    I’d have no problem getting them on Thanksgiving. But I’m the kind of person that doesnt see the big deal about working on it, so I’m probably not the right person to answer. 😛

      I agree with BrownPlaidBook, especially if you have an ethical stance. Its still much cheaper than you were originally going to spend.

    I’d definitely do the online ordering!

    If I were you, I’d order online. Get a deal, relax on a holiday, avoid the crowds, and keep your morals. Sounds like a win win to me.

    All is fair in love and….wedding budgets.

     

     If it makes you feel better, buy a $5 starbucks card and give it with a thank you note to the cashier who helps you.  Done correctly, it could make a difference.  I know because I used to work at a restaurant that was open 365 days a year and I worked more than my fair share of holidays.

    You won’t be going out on Black Friday but on Thanksgiving, right?  I think you should go ahead and save the $30 by going out next week.

    I’m a little confused… why are you morally opposed to stores operating on a day celebrating this year’s harvest?

    I totally get that it’s complete silliness — the mayhem is insane and no one likes to go to work on a holiday. But lots of people have to work on holidays — anyone in a patient care setting (hospital, nursing home), many food service providers (restuarants, coffee shops), rescue workers, snow plows, any many other types of jobs. I could see being morally opposed if it was a sacred religious celebration… but it’s not. It’s a day of football and entertainment through parades of celebrity and advertistements. I like having an excuse to eat good food with people I care about, but it’s not something I feel morally entitiled to.

    I think black friday is crazy, and I wouldn’t fight through crowds to do it — but I might pop into a shop at 10pm to save a few hundred bucks — sure.

    I’d do the online coupon code, avoid the madness, keep your conscience clear, and not risk getting to Black Friday and the stores being out of what you’re trying to get.  Doorbusters go so fast, you might not be able to get everything you need.  Do the online coupon, and that way, you’re certain you’ve got everything, and you aren’t encouraging the Thanksgiving shopping insanity.
