I set up filters, on my PCs, to bin all emails about "Black Friday"!

Over 50 emails came my way, with "Black Friday" in the Title and they all were dumped straight away.

Reason for not reading them? It's because I think that they, mostly, lie about the (supposedly) lower prices.

So, now, the filters will be all about the next big sales Con, i.e. Christmas!

Once a fine Religious celebration, now another Con job, like Black Friday, Halloween, and the other monthly "hits".

After that, Easter!

Call me Scrooge, if you like, but I'm blocking the lot.

Good find. I haven't seen anything special yet. I did buy another throw. Couldn't help myself.

I've been getting Black Friday e mails every day for the last 3 weeks ... each week 'Friday' has come and gone and yet the following week I get more Black Friday mail ... can't wait to see what happens tomorrow.

Basically I think it's all a big con and there are very few real bargains.

Would rather wait for post Christmas sales.

For those not in the US, Black Friday is the day after Thanksgiving and is known for stores having big sales.

Even before the days of internet, stores would open early for the Black Friday sales. People would actually camp out at the store to be first in line for whatever gadget they wanted.

Each year, the stores would open earlier. Eventually, the sales would start at midnight.

Then internet sales came and people could buy their toaster or 90-inch TV from the comfort of their homes.

I have never been to a store on Black Friday nor have I ordered anything online that day.

There is simply nothing I need that badly...
