Black Friday: Don’t Fall for the Hype

Last year, for the first time, my wife thrust herself into the heaving, pulsating mass of depraved shopaholics at our local mall on Black Friday. She says it was a horrible experience, and she’ll never do that again. But can’t you get great deals on Black Friday? Isn’t a 300-inch HDTV for $99 worth camping in front of Bust Buy for a week? Not necessarily, especially since, aside from a very few come-ons, you can do better shopping online almost any day of the year than you can on Black Friday at a physical retailer. And even if you must attend a shopping event to make you feel like a true-blue American Christmas shopper, why not make it Cyber Monday, which you can experience from your computer at home?
