Poll #2087212 Black Friday

Have you bought anything on Black Friday?

Yes, and I used a promotional code or coupon, or took advantage of a Black Friday deal
5(41.7%)
Yes, but only because I needed essential supplies, like coffee, tea and/or milk.
2(16.7%)
No, I have stayed indoors, locked my wallet in a filing cabinet, and entirely avoided the internet. Someone else is answering this poll for me. Really.

It was only Steam games that were hugely discounted, but still it was a Black Friday purchase 😊

Now I'm curious which Steam games, but of course this is why I should not be on the internet on Black Friday. :D

I mostly do single player easy games, point click, hidden picture, and the like.
There are a couple games in my wishlist that we're more than I usually would spend, but.. well, they were cheaper, so I got sucked in. XD

I really, really hadn't planned to but then my mobile phone decided to die ...

I bought some stuff for the kids and myself, but today rather than yesterday. I still think they count as Black Friday purchases though, since I wouldn't have gotten them if I hadn't been informed of the discounts via e-mail.

Also, what timing on the phone's part! I hope you got a good replacement.

I ordered a Samsung Galaxy S7. I'd googled and the S8 isn't much different - the S9 is still way too expensive. I can't justify that really seeing how little I use my phone.

Two respected people in my industry were offering a Black Friday deal on a business class they were teaching, and I was like HELL YEAH.

That was via an email, though. I avoid the malls.
