Black Friday Ads: OfficeMax

Well it seems Gizmodo has gotten the jump on me. I was planning on listing all the upcoming Black Friday ads, starting in November. If you don’t know what Black Friday is, well it’s the most hellacious shopping day for retail employees but also the best deals for consumers. It’s also the day after U.S Thanksgiving. I suppose it’s similar to the Commonwealth’s “Boxing Day”, if you’ve heard our Canadian or Australian members talking about that..

Here in the U.S, people line up starting at 3AM just for a cheap laptop. In fact that’s how I got my first laptop (15″ Acer P.O.S). If you get there any later than 10AM your bets on finding anything worth buying are slim to none.

Deals after the break.

  1. i kinda hate black friday, cuz i read that once a wal-mart employee died from a black friday. he was trampled and push threw, but the only thing the customers colud think about was getting that something they didnt even want, but bought it anyway cuz it was on sale. so yeah, a wal-mart employee was killed on a black friday. its very sad

  2. Yeah, I agree, I hate Black Friday. I think people act like wild animals on that day in particular, and they do. Trampling people, rushing in like they won’t get their chance, it’s madness. It’s totally uncivilized. It’s ridiculous. It’s inhumane. And I choose not to be a part of this. That’s just my opinion of course, but I know that there are people who would agree with my views. I don’t think it happens everywhere, but in some places it’s just crazy.
