POLL: Do You Celebrate Black Friday And Cyber Monday?

While I enjoyed a lazy day in Salt Lake City on Friday, I read update after update on Facebook about Black Friday deals and early morning lines.

I’ve never participated in a Black Friday shopping spree, which is somewhat surprising, considering my love of sale items.  I have, however, found some pretty good deals on Cyber Monday.  (I prefer browsing in my sweatpants.)  Last year, I found a $300 printer for $99, which I bought Travis for his birthday.  (Yes, I know it’s an unromantic gift.  But he loved it!)

Yesterday, Travis and I hunted around online for a point-and-shoot digital camera, and we ended up buying a cool waterproof model for $100 lower than the normal retail price!

Have you braved a food coma and hit the streets in search of a good deal?
.

Do you get up early for Black Friday, or do wait for Cyber Monday and score good deals online?  Do you prefer to opt out of these crazy sales?  What’s the best deal you’ve scored?  Tell me in the comments!

    This year was my first (and last) Black Friday experience. We went in search of a new laptop for my husband. After hitting WalMart with no luck we went to Best Buy which was a total madhouse. Unless I absolutely need something, I don’t plan on doing Black Friday ever again. Maybe next year I will try to find some deals on Cyber Monday.

    I definitely only venture out on black friday for big ticket items. one year i picked up a Max Mara coat that was like 75% off plus another %15 at Saks. This year I picked up a flight for $99 on Cyber Monday!!

    I went shopping for Black Friday for the first time ever and found out it wasn’t as bad as expected. I avoided shopping malls and stuck with small shopping centers and boutiques. I found soo many great deals! $20 winter coats, originally $100 from H&M, 25% off of entire store at Charlotte Russe and so much more!!
