    Default Black Friday Conquests: 2016 Edition

    What deals did you snag?

    Here are mine:

    1. Wednesday I showed up at hhgregg (insert Sab jokes here) planning to buy a TV. I wanted to get the Samsung UN40KU6290 (40 inch, 4K, 120 Hz, Smart TV with browser), which was priced at $299.99. They had a 15% off coupon for any purchase over $299.99, which I also intended to use. They told me I couldn't use the coupon on a doorbuster.

    So I moseyed on over to Best Buy, where they agreed to match the coupon for the same TV. Sweet! Then, on top of that, whether out of stupidity or just a simple moment of kindness, the manager took $75 off instead of $45. 25% discount on a Black Friday price is pretty hard to beat.

    2. I have been wanting to purchase Bluetooth wireless headphones to use during workouts for a while now. I decided to go for the Plantronics Backbeat Fit for $99.99. They were okay. Comfortable, light, easy to use, etc., but when I got to the gym today, I realized that they were nowhere near loud enough. I decided that the average sound quality and below average volume made them not worth the $100 I spent, so I took them back.

    I had planned to go for the Jaybird X3's as a replacement (also priced at $99.99), but I couldn't find any on the shelf. I noticed a pair of the Jaybird Freedom's with a damaged box, and decided to see if I could get a discount. Spoke to the guy at customer service, and he agreed to do a 1 for 1 exchange. So, these headphones were originally $179.99, were on sale for $129.99, and I got them for $99.99.

    I think I did pretty well. How'd you guys do?
    It's not an excuse, it's an explanation.

    Got a Milwaukee tool chest because I wanted one and most everything I looked at was either shoddily built (Crapsman, Husky, Kobalt and so on) or just far too much money to justify spending despite being awesome (Matco, MAC)

    I got to see throngs of pissed off people at the Walmarts Thursday night for free. It was glorious.

    I finished eating an entire pumpkin pie by myself.

    I had jambalaya with pulled pork mixed in.

    I win.

    Bossy mother-in-law came to town with her two non-house trained Shih-tzus. Graded papers to get away from it. I lose.

    I stayed home & watched football. I'd rather have my testicles crushed in a vice than get in that mess.

    Agreed. Not to mention, online shopping has good enough deals to avoid the crowds.

    My dog had to have some tumors removed and needed a dental. Was quoted $1500 in DC. Took her down to the vet office I got her from in Knoxville, got it all for $500. She's already perked up and barking at rabbits. I'm happy.

    That sucks. I know how you feel. We actually flew from Nashville to Panama City Beach to avoid dealing with kids in the car. Money well spent for the shortest flight of my life.

    New MacBook Pro. People were still dumb even in late afternoon when we went.
