To the States on Black Friday? The deals are amazing. This will be my third year going. Wish the exchange was as good as last year.

I don't live close enough for this to be a deal for me. Also, this year is tight. However, I have an aunt who lives in Sarnia who goes, and once and awhile she will get things if other family members request them. Why don't we do Black Friday here in Canada?!

Ahhhhh! Hates shopping? lol MEN! My sister and I go together (she drives) I don't know my way around there as well as she does. Last year and this year my bff is going us. The more the merrier and the cheaper the hotel lol so anyways I am leaving this afternoon and coming back saturday.

I don't know why we don't have something like this in Canada...we never seem to have that great of deals even when stuff is on sale!

the deals aren't worth it to me. I went shopping last night and got some gifts and I'll finish the rest later. I just hate all the people at the stores tying to get the one big deal. I order alot online.

Ditto for hating crowds in stores. I always try to get my Christmas shopping done by Dec 1 so I don't have to deal with the crowds. This year I'm a little late, but I only need one more store for gifts, and the dollar store for wrapping supplies, so not bad.

I went this year (and last year). Actually, I'm still in Bangor right now. We decided to make a weekend of it for my birthday and planned to stay Thursday and Friday nights, then we ran into my parents yesterday and decided to stay another night. So we're heading home this afternoon. I got some AWESOME deals!

I did get some fantastic deals this year! They had most of the deals from last year but I already had that stuff lol I did pick up a samsung 10 megapixel camera for 69 bucks and its awesome. Lots of fabulous clothes at Target. I just wish the disney stores in that area hadnt all closed (which I dont understand btw) that sucked cause I generally get a lot of kids stuff there.

I thought about going this year but I don't think it's worth the hassle. I live in Vancouver, and going through border control and all that crap isn't worth saving like $5!! I would rather have time than money...
