Quick update: Are you one of those nutballs ... er ... I mean thrifty shoppers ... who like to go out at 5 a.m. on the day after Thanksgiving and stand in line for hours in the hopes that you can snatch up an X-Box 360 for $12.95? That's okay ... you aren't alone. Millions of people, if not myself, are right there with ya.
For those of you who look at shopping as a competitive sport, I offer you ... a website that's offering all the Black Friday fliers ... now. Yes, you heard me right. You can start planning what insane deals you're going to grab right now.
Bf2004.net is an example of a handful of websites where you can find scans of ads for places like Best Buy, Circuit City, and yes big box mart itself ... Walmart.
Word is that some stores like Sears really have their panties in a pinch over this because their fliers were snuck out of print shops ... and other stores like Walmart are purposely and secretly "distributing" these fliers early through their employees. Either way ... it's good for you, right?
Gottadeal is a similar website ... but really all you have to do is type "black friday sales" into Google and you'll be on your way to an early shopping frenzy like you've never imagined.
Hey, I wish you the best ... you've got no competition from me. My happy ass will still be in bed.
