As all of you US bees know, Black Friday sales started today on thanksgiving ): I hate that we have to choose between saving money and spending time with out friends and family but we were able to make it work. A few weeks ago someone broke into my car and stole DD’s ipad so we were able to go to wal-mart and get a new one for $299 but they gave us a $100 gift card, which we can use for our new baby stuff. That’s all we needed this Black Friday. Anyone else get any good deals?!

@Laurenskii: lol just think of it as easy holiday pay!!!!! You’re lucky you’re not in retail lol
@ToTheRiot: if there are any deals left!!! All the good deals are gone so quickly I feel like. My FI got to wal-mart 10 minutes after they opened and they were out of iPads. Luckily they did rain checks this year because there’s no way I could convince him to wait in like in freezing cold!

I got the new iPad Air from Target for $479 plus a $100 Target Gift Card. We got a 6′ prelit Christmas tree for $30! (I was super excited for this deal lol). A 16 megapixel digicam for $80 instead of $160. And then a smattering of other things that were price cut, like icicle Christmas lights that we’ll put on our balcony and a mini white Christmas tree with mini pink and blue ornaments for my office. I’m super excited bc last year we had NO Christmas decorations. I wanted an electric Menorah for my office, but I couldn’t find one. I do think we did really well in the deals department though!
ETA: I’m also hoping to score my yoga studios Black Friday special – it’s $59/month unlimited instead of $105 for 2 months. What a steal!

I refuse to go to a physical store on black friday, but I did buy a few great appliances at kohl’s! With rebates and kohl’s cash, I spend around 7 dollars for three appliances! Woot woot!

@Ninteenthchance: I got a pretty red Dyson at Target 🙂 We saved up for one over the past couple of months and didn’t really have to “fight crowds” to get the deal. We showed up about an hour and a half after they opened (on our way home from being with family), picked one up and got in line. There was no shortage, no fighting, nothing crazy like what people talk about.

I did mine online… I got…
A new TV stand, originally $300, got it for $180.
Two wedding bands for myself, originally $800, paid $543.
A rug runner for our garage entrance for $30 off.
4 pillows for our couches for $50 off.
Google chromebook for FI’s Xmas for $200.
A giant decorative mirror for our dining room, originally $140, paid $45.
FI is crazy and went to stores and got…
A 4 piece dewalt drill kit for $199.
A PS3 bundle for $199.
Ipod 16gb for $220 with a $30 gift card rebate at Target.
His wedding band… he bought it in store, brought it home, then we found it online for $140 cheaper so he’s returning it and we ordered the one online.
…I think that’s it. We have both been savers for a long time and just got a new house in May!
