In my opinion ( and the opinion of the experts) you DO NOT save money on Black Friday and here's why:
You go to the store for that "DOOR BUSTER" or that "$125 television" of course you all must know by now that they only have 10-20 of any of those special items. Although you woke up at 3:00 to get there , the people who woke up at 2:00 are there before you and get those special items, so you end up staying and buying items you would not have bought just because of your trouble of waking up and getting to the store. Also it is a fact that items such as jewelry, watches ect. are marked up at this time of year.What about the time and frustration? THEN there's the example below! The entire year I've been getting e-mails and snail mail from Kohls for an extra 20-30% OFF EVERTHING! NOW for "BLACK FRIDAY" I get only 15%!
