Anyone seeking out anything specific this year? What are the best deals you are seeing so far?

My go-to site for deals is https://bfads.net, anyone have a better resource?

    i'm looking for an iphone 11 for the wife (her 6 is really struggling recently) other than that, nothing on my end. I will be watching cabelas for some deals, nothing pressing, but if a deal on something i could use comes up... i'll jump on it.

    Supposedly the Apple Watch series 3, which is a couple series old now, will be $129. You really can’t beat it for that price.

    I was expecting a "black friday is for poor people" post. I'm disappointed.

    From what I read, it would be most of the big name stores. And Amazon was expected to match it.

    Ah memories...although when I did it, there was the added benefit of still feeling rough from the previous night, despite it being more like 6 p.m. when I was there last year.

    It wasn't $299?

    It was a funny experience. It was only a few blocks away I walked by at 2:30 while on a booze run. One mom in line.

    I went back around 5 til and there were around 30 kids and a few adults in line. Doors open and everyone rushed to lineup at the counter. I noticed the majority were buying Nintendo Switches and other games I've never heard of. I knew I'd have no issue with the PS4.

    Didn’t end up with the Apple Watch series 3 deal. Was going to purchase it for my gf. The only place I saw with the $129 price was Walmart and it was in store only. Target had them for $169, but I passed.

    Yesterday some DJ on the radio said the day of the year that most emails are sent is Cyber Monday.  Supposedly it has to do with follow-up messages due to the online shopping traffic, but I couldn't tell if that stat is accurate or not.

    I would tend to think that’s true. I think I received like 250 or so emails all for shopping. Multiple emails from the same stores throughout the day.
