No, I will not be camping out for a good deal.

It is almost that time of the year. The time of year when that most people look forward to and count down to. The one day of year that gets more publicity and ad time then any other. I’m not talking about Thanksgiving or Christmas. I’m talking about BLACK FRIDAY.

There are lots of people that look forward to Black Friday. They watch the ads that have been playing nonstop for the past week. They can’t wait until the stores have their Black Friday ads out.

Like the past few years, all of the Black Friday ads have been leaked onto the internet early. This year the ads got leaked sooner and the stores set up their Christmas displays earlier. All in hopes that it will stimulate sales and help their revenue.

This year stores are doing whatever they can to give the best deals and get as many shoppers to their doors as possible. Old Navy is opening their doors at 3am on Friday while others are opening up at 4am. Some are even going as far as opening on Thanksgiving and staying open for 24 hours. Wal-Mart is going as far as allowing customers to camp out next to the item they want to buy. There is going to be a long line in front of those few $128 flat screens they have.

I am not one of those people that will be camped out on Thanksgiving waiting for the stores to open. I will not be one of those people that they will interview on the nightly news in front of Best Buy.

I will instead be one of the people that will be taking advantage of Borders’ Wednesday sale and even possibly New York and Company’s online sale.

I will be that person sleeping in on Friday, getting rid of my Turkey coma. You can not pay me enough to camp out for 2 days just for a deal.
