Black Friday... Did anyone take advantage of the Black Friday sales?
For the first time in my life - because of the crappy economy, and because I refuse to allow that to dampen my Christmas spirit, and because the only department store credit card we have is a Macy's - I took advantage of Macy's Black Friday sale yesterday between midnight and 1:00 p.m. - and again between 10:00 a.m. and 11:30 a.m. And, sooo glad I did! (Macy's has always been my favorite department store, and when Macy's has a sale, they mean it).
My son, his fiance and myself all arrived at Macy's about about midnight-fifteen to find just about everything on sale for 60% off, with many things offering an additional 15% to 20% off if you used your Macy's credit card -cha ching! Everything I bought for my loved ones fell into that category, with some of it even qualifying for an additional 10% off with the Macy's coupon that came in their mailer (didn't have one myself, but the sales personnel checking me out had one at the counter). I found everything I had on my wishlist for others and it's all really nice things I know they need and will love.
I ended up saving nearly $700 dollars over retail and spent far less than that
I heard about the pepper spray thing. Unbelievable! What is wrong with some people??? One thing is for sure, if we didn't live in Tinyville, no way would I have ventured out for a Black Friday sale. Ha! If we were still in Southern CA trying that I'd probably still be stuck in traffic.
