wallet is safe


... but... i wanted to spend!

This is me as well... I have money to spend but really don't see anything. Looks like just another weekend sale that we've seen all year long.

Funny how this thread is made every year yet people still go out and buy.

I guarantee you the parking lots & shopping malls will still be packed on Boxing Day and people will be walking around with handful of bags. :facepalm:

It usually sucks almost every year but lemmings still line up . Most of the stuff is year end crap they are trying to get rid off ..usually you will see similar prices in late Jan & Feb when all the 2011 clearance sales start :lol:

I haven't been lining up at FS/BB for years now, ever since I can buy things online on the 24th.

Assuming that their crappy servers don't / won't crash like every year when they can't handle the extra traffic :lol:

Last yr ..people were waiting 3-4 hrs for the pages to load up . Lot of orders didn't go thru & some people even had stuff in their basket & when they went to checkout ..the stuff was already sold out :-0 even though they though they had it sae in their basket :lol:

That's the point of Boxing Day for businesses. You think it's consumer oriented? Hahahaha

It really depends on what you are looking for you... There are plenty of good deals out there. I had my eye on a particular receiver and it's 50% off, and it's never been that cheap, and it's this years model. There are also good deals like the Xbox for $99.. Sure its limited quantity, but thats how these good deals work, you gotta get there early to get them.

Worst boxing day ever! Only saw couple of "ok" deals. Next year I will not even count on it. Will probably do Black Friday in US, Canadian boxing day is done for me :facepalm:

There are a couple of interesting deals, like the $99 Xbox at Staples, or the $179 Bose system at FS.

You can put up this same thread every year and repeat it over.
I don't know, so far I'm happy with how this Boxing Day is looking. I don't have to leave the country and I'm getting deals on stuff I've been putting up (camera, memory card, memory stick, hard drives, maybe even a TV, etc).

No complaints here.

^ This

We should just start a single thread titled "Boxing Day sucks" and call it a day.

Thanks for the summary.
Was it the same black friday Xbox price people pepper spray each other for?
