Wow, time certainly does fly...
Thanksgiving and Black Friday are next week, so it's high time we get the yearly deals thread started for the holiday season!
Any great deals you find interesting and want to share are fair game. It's okay to go beyond GPS and to chat about items you hope to find.

Best Buy is certainly aggressive
havent really seen any yet
... and this has become one of the best seasons for that in a long time. Learned how to do so from my father in the 1950's.
From buying forward home heating oil, to service at your friendly car dealer, to higher end clothing in the smaller shops. Fur continues to rise out of reach, but select leather can be had at a very fair price. Flannel will have to wait until the 26th which is OK since there seems to be ample supply. As with many now, we do our seasonal shopping through the year; in fact our Christmas acquisitions are all but done. That is as much a matter of seizing specific items when & where available as it has been responding to strategic pricing.
Black Friday? A good day to finish changing over to snow tires, or perhaps setting up the outdoor lighting. Here's hoping all can find the opportunity to relax, keep warm, and enjoy the season as it unfolds!
I'm not one to venture out on Black Friday, but have sometimes location a deal online.
In addition to the previous mention, there are many sites to look at for potential deal, *if* you really need something:
If anyone sees a sale on the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 AT&T let me know.
So far SamsClub at $799.00 is the best I can find.
I'm thinking to skip all the push and shove this year by doing all my Black-Friday'ing online for once.
Has an instant 20.00 off today

if you don't know about it already...
Thank you, great site.
Thanksgiving is a Holiday. I will NOT shop on Thanksgiving. Employees are being forced to work on this family holiday. Friday after Thanksgiving has been turned into a holiday by many businesses because many workers would use a vacation day on Friday. Employees of the big box stores are being forced to work that Friday. I will NOT shop on the Friday after Thanksgiving.
If it wasn't for the unreasonable competition, people would still shop, during the week or weekends. All that opening on Thanksgiving and the day after does is move the shopping to those days and spoil a couple days of rest and family time. There are better sales after the holiday, so why encourage the retailers to abuse their staff?
Have a Happy THanksgiving.
take the day and relax....
A Holiday is just that, the time to celebrate with family and friends and NOT spent time shopping. People are so focused on material things they forget what's more important in life. I truly feel sorry for those employees that are forced to work and deprive them of the joy of being with their family.
I DO NOT shop on Black Friday, I did it once and never again. I saw some people behaving in less than a civilized manner and it was depressing.
Not just for Black Friday.
All my favorites.
Some seems like good deals but you have to have a need for one.
Best deal was: indoor, available, attended parking in the area east & south of the Plaza (bet you weren't expecting that). Experienced natives will park where they can & then take transit from point to point. Get an up to date transit map wherever or print a portion from the MTA site online. If you are over 65 the subway system has a round trip card that's still a bargain.
F.A.O. Schwartz, now owned by Toys'R'Us, has some quality mid sized stuffed animals at very attractive prices. Western boots? Head down town to 8th St between 5th & 6th. Four stores there; best higher end selection & pricing this side of El Paso/Albuquerque. Otherwise if you are a mid-range shopper like we are stay regional, local, online.
Best store exterior: Harry Winston.
This year's Tiffany snowflake is finally a class item.
Windows? Lord & Taylor's use of LCD panels.
Everyone drops into St. Patrick's, you might also want to also consider St. Thomas (http://www.saintthomaschurch.org/).
Yes, the City is still a foody's paradise. Certainly not as cheap as Chicago, but where else will you find Zabar's on the West Side, the Carnegie in the heart of it, or John's ( http://johnsbrickovenpizza.com/ ) sour dough thin crust (in 'the Village')?
GPS issues? Nuvi is clueless/irrelevant in NYC. In fact I saw not one in any vehicle window there. While much ink has been expended here on remote cameras etc, be aware that they've gone berserk rerouting & remarking streets & avenues. Hostile signage everywhere & yes the new 25 mph is randomly posted in spots.
Enjoy. Yes the City a generation later is a different place with different people, but then again that would only be a topical observation. In many regards it's still world class 400 years later, and perhaps the best $24 bargain the Dutch ever made ... or so the legend goes.
If you are in the market for a handheld, REI has the Garmin Etrex 30 listed in their Black Friday ad for $159.99. Unfortunately there are no REI stores in Iowa.
- Apple tv 69.00$
- 8 GB class 10 microSDHC or SDHC card 1.88$
There are some good deals out there
I do most of my shopping online. It is amazing how rude some people get at the stores. Like it is really going to matter in 100 years that they had to run over people to get the deal. It is a shame people have lost out on what is important.
Pushed around in an online store today just like being in the crowd. Seems like no matter where you go to shop these days there are rude and pushy people!
I picked up a different handheld GPS for Black Friday. Not just a GPS though, it is also an MP3 player, a timer, an alarm clock, an Internet wifi browser, a police scanner relay point, an emergency 911 radio, a camera and video camera, and a lot more. Didn't pay 159.99, paid about $12 including sales tax and a "fee" that Walgreens shouldn't have even been charging. (Not the first time I've seen Walgreens over charge customers on taxes and fees and likely not the last, they seem to go out of their way to do that.)
Oh, it wasn't called a handheld GPS. It is being called a Net10 prepaid Android phone. But I don't expect that I'll ever buy air time for it or activate it, so it's my pocket sized Android device with GPS.
I haven't see any real good deals in my area either.
Well, I ventured out after lunch to see if I could score a step ladder for $20, but both stores were already sold out.
I did find a nice set of spade drill bits on sale that I will need for an upcoming project, so the trip was at least a partial success.
