Note: Hello there! Hmm, you found a secret unannounced blog post. Ah yes, well I'm simply archiving one my old radars! Enjoy!
What's up this week? Why, Black Friday of course! Not sure what that is? Read this quick excerpt from wikipedia...
|Black Friday is the day after Thanksgiving and is the beginning of the traditional Christmas shopping season in the United States. Since Thanksgiving falls on the fourth Thursday in November in the United States, Black Friday may be as early as the 23rd and as late as the 29th day of November. Retailers often decorate for the Christmas season weeks beforehand. Many retailers open very early (typically 5 A.M.) and offer doorbuster deals and loss leaders to draw people to their stores. Although Black Friday, as the first shopping day after Thanksgiving, has served as the unofficial beginning of the Christmas season at least since the start of the modern Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade in 1924, the term "Black Friday" has been traced back only to the 1970s. "Black Friday" was originally so named because of the heavy traffic on that day, although most contemporary uses of the term refer instead to it as the beginning of the period in which retailers are in the black (i.e., turning a profit).|
So, yeah, I'm sure you know about this, but may not of known there was a name of it. Or maybe you have. Oh well.
I particularly enjoy this shopping event for waking up at 5 A.M. to fight the crowds and see what deals can be taken. So, I've gathered a few things of interest (Nintendo stuff, obviously) that have caught my eye and it may interest you as well.
Wow, these are some nice limited edition DSs at Best Buy! If I had money I might of upgrade my DS Phat to that shiny gold Zelda DS! Friday & Saturday only!
|Hmm, this seems like a good deal. This was a snapshot taken at a KB Toys store, and but 1 get 1 free doesn't seem like a bad deal.|
However, where the heck is the nearest KB Toys?
This comes with:
Wii Two Wiimotes Two nunchucks Super Paper Mario Mario Party 8 Brunswick Pro Bowling (Two Wiimotes and Nunchuks are separate from the ones included with the Wii)
From 5 to 7 AM you'll only be able to purchase one per customer, but after that you can grab as many as you want. This is an online deal at samsclub.com, but not price was announced.
|*GASP*! $35 for SUPER MARIO GALAXY at Circuit City? Wow, makes me wish I hadn't pre-ordered/bought it already. Oh well, I'd probably wouldn't be able to wait that long anyway. Ha, but this is a steal.|
