i think its friggin awesome. I am able to pick up a good deal, sit comfortably at home and not have to worry about getting a good deal on the 26th. i was able to order a 43" samsung plasma for $299 plus tax within a few minutes of the sale starting. My sis was so happy and all of it was taken care of on the 24th. Now that is a sweet christmas surprise! No one's forcing you to do the sale. There's plenty of in-store stuff you can line up for in the middle of the night on the 26th. heh.aos007 wrote: ↑Dec 19th, 2012 3:30 pmGlad I was not the only one unhappy with the trend. Christmas Eve dinner is a tradition and having the sale as you are supposed to sit and eat is an insult to the holiday that's the reason for the sale to begin with. Start the sale at midnight 26th. It has to suck to work for those companies IT, too. I wish somebody would start a boycott or at least give them some negative media exposure.
I do agree to an extent on the negative impact it may have on the actual workers, but as a consumer I'd say suck it up. You're getting an opportunity to get a solid deal. Complaining about someone giving you a good deal? Pretty friggin weak.
