Saturday Six – Episode 346

I hope you saved enough strength from the feast on Thursday to be able to brave the lines on Black Friday.  Assuming, of course, that you actually left the house on Friday morning!

This week’s quiz is all about Black Friday, the day retailers hope they’ll be able to be thankful for!

  1. 1. How long did you spend browsing Black Friday ads on Thanksgiving Day?
    Not at all.

    2. What’s the earliest you’ve ever been to a store on any Black Friday?
    This year's Black Friday was the first time I ever shopped on a Black Friday.

    3. Which store would be your first choice as one to line up outside before it opened on Black Friday?
    I don't think any shop would be my "first choice" for such idiocy, but if there really was something worth the effort, probably Best Buy or a similar electronics store.

    4. What is the first thing you purchased on Friday?
    Two bags of dog food.

    5. Take the quiz: What’s Your Black Friday Shopping Style?
    Online Deal Seeker

    6. How much of your Black Friday shopping did you do online?
    None. Had I had the money to spend on "stuff", I'd probably have made purchases on NewEgg or something.

    I think your blog looks even better on Linux.

  3. Hi Patrick 🙂

    Here are my answers…

    1. Not long, I pretty much knew what I was shopping for. I spent maybe 20 minutes checking things out.
    2. 3:30 AM
    3. Macy's
    4. A Blue Dress
    5. You Are an Online Deal Seeker
    You are technologically savvy and extremely comfortable with online shopping.
    When it comes to Black Friday, there's no other choice but to shop online. How else can you be at multiple stores at once?

    Besides, you don't even have to leave your warm home to shop. You may have to get up early to get the best deals, but at least you can do it in your pj's.
    You don't need the stress of crazy crowds and long lines. The sales are just as good online!

    6. ZERO. WE LOVE BLACK FRIDAY! The crowds, the Christmas music, the fantastic coffee at our favorite cafe in Union Square in San Francisco… it just can't be beat!

    Have a great week Patrick! 🙂

  4. 1. How long did you spend browsing Black Friday ads on Thanksgiving Day?

    A few hours

    2. What’s the earliest you’ve ever been to a store on any Black Friday?

    I think 5 a.m, but maybe 6.

    3. Which store would be your first choice as one to line up outside before it opened on Black Friday?

    Depends on what I'm looking for and who has it and for what price.

    4. What is the first thing you purchased on Friday?

    Some DVDs at Target. But I'd already done online shopping before Friday – some way ahead of time, some after I did some price comparison with Thursday's ads.

    5. Take the quiz: What’s Your Black Friday Shopping Style?

    Online Deal Seeker

    6. How much of your Black Friday shopping did you do online?

    I did about half of my Christmas shopping online, but not on Friday – before.
