What Was Your Best Black Friday/Cyber Monday Purchase?

You might have noticed in the last week that a small handful of forward-thinking stores and websites have offered discounts on products to kick off what some would call the “holiday shopping season.”

As mentioned earlier, I’ve already gotten almost all my shopping done by going online. And while I can’t say exactly what I purchased (for some reason my family actually reads this site — and still hasn’t disowned me) without spoiling the holidays.

But there must be at least a few of you who can openly brag about the best deal you’ve gotten in the last few days, whether it’s because none of the gift recipients will recognize your commenter name or because you shopped for yourself, holidays be damned.

So please, people of Consumerist, boast away in the comments!

    Gold Toe socks at Herbergers, $18 / 6pk, on sale for $10.87.

    4″ Fire stick CB antenna for $12 at the local truck stop.

    • TheSpatulaOfLove says:

      I certainly hope that’s a typo – 4″ antennas just don’t get out there!

      • egoods says:

        Yeah, I doubt firestick makes a 4″ antenna, I’m guessing he meant 4′, which still isn’t the optimal height (I may be mistaken but I believe 120″ is perfect for the CB spectrum) but a very common size for firestick and other CB antennas. I run a Wilson 5k and it’s great for skip shooting, I’ve reached as far as 1500 miles with that antenna (the weather was absolutely perfect for it).

    Jos A Bank: $550 suits for $129, $600 Lambskin Leather Jacket for $129 (and other deals there as well- they were amazing).

  4. photoguy622 says:

    Amazon had the Professional 600 KitchenAid stand mixer for $199. I’ve always wanted one of those and I didn’t even have to leave the house!

    • Portlandia says:

      Yeah, they had that at Sears too for the same price.

      I have the smaller version which I love and was very tempted to get the larger professional series.

      • photoguy622 says:

        Actually the KitchenAid mixer at Sears was the Pro 500. A good machine as well, but the Professional 600 is the bahama mama!

        • Portlandia says:

          Excellent deal then!!! Shows how closely I looked at them.

          The professional series are nice but they’re just too darn big. My Kitchen has two big appliance garages which keeps the counters clean. The professional series is too tall for them so it’s a non starter for me. Form over function…lol

    • jedifarfy says:

      Ohhhh crave, but won’t get. Make yummy things! :D

    • Jevia says:

      I sortof want to get one, but I keep asking myself, what could I possibly make that would justify the price that I can’t already make with my hand-held electric mixer/beater? I know hands free is enticing, but I don’t hold my current one more than a few minutes at a time (and it doesn’t take up counter space).

      Is there something great I’m missing?

      • webweazel says:

        I’m a baker. Trust me when I say, SKIP IT. I’ve had one for 8 years. I rarely use it. I call it “the beast” and it lives in my pantry because it’s WAY too big to keep on the counter. I haven’t used it since forever because it’s a huge, bulky, heavy BEAST. My hand mixer gets a workout, though, on a regular basis. I only use the beast for maybe making bread, but it’s such a pain to lug around, I just end up kneading by hand. Rarely, if something needs to be mixed for 10 minutes at a stretch, I’ll use it, because I don’t feel like standing there holding the hand mixer. Plus, I have MANY complaints about it overall, and cuss like a sailor at it every time i use it.
        If you want/need to use a bunch of the attachments, it might be worth it, but I, myself, don’t use them at all. Don’t want/need to.
        Get one of those “retro” Sunbeam mixers with the controls on the back end. That is what I’m going to get. You want the KitchenAid? I’ll gladly sell it to you so I can get my Sunbeam. In yellow.

        • proscriptus says:

          I would have agreed with you, until my son hit three and started wanting to help in the kitchen. My KitchenAid is really quite wonderful for that–he can measure and pour ingredients into the funnel, turn it on and off–we did a cake this weekend and with just verbal instructions he did most of it. Pretty great for that.

          My mother, who has rheumatoid arthritis, also borrows it for breadmaking, it allows her to do only as much kneading as she wants. Back when I used to cook professionally, we sure gave those suckers a workout, and they never gave in.

      • 339point4 says:

        I inherited mine from my grandmother. It’s many decades old and still works perfectly. Even if you don’t use it frequently, I think they’re a terrific investment.

  5. Willow16 says:

    Virgin Mobile Rumor Touch for $69.99 (regularly $149.99). I thought the sale was only on Friday in the store but I checked online on Saturday and was able to buy two and then picked them up at the store. They’re now $99.99 on the Virgin Mobile website but I think I got the best deal.

    • Riroon13 says:

      Arrgh! Not three weeks ago, I bought two of those for 150/per. On a side, they were a pain to kick start, but once you do the song-and-dance with cutomer service, the phones are great.

  6. FreshPorcupineSalad says:

    Sheetz travel coffee mug, on sale for $4, coffee included.

  7. SPOON - now with Forkin attitude says:

    I got nothin.

  8. Rachacha says:

    Gold plated 3′ long HDMI Cable with magical unicorn tears for only $1,976.43. The picture on my $450 30″ LCD tv looks awesome!

    • Cheap Sniveler: Sponsored by JustAnswer.comâ„¢ says:

      Cream Chale? Bla.
      12 horse. (they don’t make it anymore, do they?)
      And I’ll have a garbage plate with white hots with that.

  9. Portlandia says:

    Showed up at Walmart about 9am, they opened at 4 am, to get the 500 gig Portable External Hard drive by Western Digital for $40 bucks.

    Every associate said it was sold out. I walked around the stoor looking for them, sure enough, display is empty. I walk around some more and rummage through the go-back carts…there is the last one sitting in one of the carts.

    I bring it to the register and the associate says, “Where did you find this?? They were sold out at 4am!”

    Oh, and I walked right past the receipt checker and said “No thanks, I’m fine!”

    • bfrosty says:

      Haha, in the spirit of the season (or trolling, you know, whatever) I scored a 1 TB hard drive from… get this… BEST BUY! (online of course) for $52 and some change after taxes…

      • Portlandia says:

        Was that the Seagate? Was it the Portable?

        I ordered the seagate from Amazon a while back, it was POS, didn’t work out of the box and it was a universal problem because it was designed to work on more mAmps than a normal USB provides. You needed a special y adapter to make it function, total BS.

        Also, the desk top external hard drives are a lot less expensive than the portable external hard drives. Was yours a desktop or portable? There’s a big difference. My portable is about the size of my iPhone ( a little wider) and is powered soley by USB.

      • TheGreySpectre says:

        That was a really good deal, I know someone else who hopped on that as well. I probalby would have if I was not out of SATA ports.

    • outshined says:

      I thought of all you guys when I walked out of Best Buy and the receipt checker was rooting through this poor lady’s bag.

      (I was only in Best Buy to get some pricing leverage with the stubborn T-Mobile folks!)

      • longdvsn says:

        I enjoyed walking right past the Best Buy receipt checker, too. I’ve found that a simple ‘No Thanks!’ takes care of it, as if you’re passing on something they’re offering you.

        *I was only in there to pick up a free webcam due to a bestbuy.com pricing error!

        Oh…my best deal: Logitech C510 HD webcam from Best Buy (pricing error) $0.00. I just need to figure out what to do with it since I won’t use it. Second Place: 2TB WD Essentials External Hard Drive (which I actually need), Amazon for $70.

        • reynwrap582 says:

          A webcam + YAWcam is always a good way to keep a remote eye on pets/people/property. Or, if you have a nice view, set it up to take a picture every X seconds and make nice timelapse videos.

    • The_IT_Crone says:

      Apparently 2TB drives were at Target for $69. Wish I’d known. :(

  10. alSeen says:

    Got Season 1 of Community for $12 from Amazon and it came with $5 in credit for Amazon On Demand. Glad I got that because I was going to get it from Wal-Mart, but ours didn’t get any in the shippers.
    Wal-Mart
    Seasons 1, 2, and 3 of Big Bang Theory, Season 2 of Sarah Connor Chronicles, Season 2 of Bones all for $12 each, 70th Anniversary of Wizard of Oz for $5
    Band Hero for DS for $10

    And I got the $200 emachine laptop from Wal-Mart. Also picked up the $30 Belkin Wireless N router since I only had a G router and the emachine did have N.

    Later that day I got the Logitech M510 wireless mouse for $15 from an Amazon Lightning deal. Gotta love the Prime shipping.

  11. Cameraman says:

    Going to Target at about 3:30 pm on Friday (I needed baby formula), and I passed a BIG stack of unsold no-name DVD players priced at $20. The only thing I could think of was “Damn, I love living in the 21st century”.

  12. mbz32190 says:

    Three Logitech HD webcams for FREE from Best Buy due to their website screw-up (was supposed to be b1g1 free, but when you only put 1 in the cart, the total was $0.) Ordered three separately, and three different people in store saw the receipt with the price and nobody said a thing.

  13. macoan says:

    I had a list for my wife – on it was Toys-r-us – Hot Wheel 32-pc track set for $12.49.

    She found a box that she thought was it, took it up to the register – rang up as $.99 – so she ran and got the last box on the shelf – so 2 boxes for $.99

    Bring them home – HEY – that is not what I picked. What she got was a box of 100 “extra” track pieces …. and each piece was suppose to be (OVERPRICED) $.99

    So got $198 for $1.98

    Now I can build that Hot Wheel track around our house with no problem.

  14. Oranges w/ Cheese says:

    I hope my Reddit Secret Santa recipient gets back to me so I can buy the Planet Earth Blu Ray for him at a considerable savings. I don’t know if he has BluRay tho.. should I just get the DVD’s instead? Bluray would be so much better…

    • gaya2081 says:

      If he doesn’t get back to you I will take it :)
      I ordered my gifts for my giftee and look forward to making the other part of his gift-KNITTED BEER COZY’S :)

    • pecan 3.14159265 says:

      Amazon had a really great Blu-Ray player deal for $80. I think it was the LG 530? It was on the home page, but we didn’t need one so I didn’t check.

  15. Aurock says:

    I’d say my best purchase was the Lord of the Rings trilogy for $7.99 from target, but 4 days after placing the order they claimed to be out of stock and cancelled the order.

    • cupcake_ninja says:

      Amazon had them for the same price up until yesterday. Now they’re $14.99 for blu ray

    • MissMostlyMittens says:

      Really, that’s odd, I got an email saying I needed to confirm if I wanted it and that if I confirmed wouldn’t get it till after Christmas. You should call customer service and see if you can get the same option. Granted it won’t help if you wanted this for a Christmas present though.

    • phonic says:

      We got 1 of 2 they had at the Sarasota, FL store. Our good friend got the other.

  16. MarvinMar says:

    Even though Target.com SCREWED me and everyone else on The Lord Of The Rings Trilogy Blu-Ray set for $7.99 I still managed to grab 1 at the store at that price. Nana Nana boo boo.

    I also scored a Fisher Price Digital Arts & Crafts Studio w/ 3 bonus games for $13 shipped on Ebay.

    • MarvinMar says:

      That Nana Nana boo boo was directed at TARGET not the other poster who got screwed.

      • SonarTech52 says:

        lol, we almost had a serious Nana Nana boo boo situation. Wars have started over a Nana Nana boo boo, remember the Hatfield/ McCoys?

        (jk)

    • macoan says:

      I did not really like the lotr – nor do I have a blue ray player yet (should by Christmas) – but I was looking for that also – no where to be found in my only near-by target. Also checked at a couple of Wal-marts for pricematch – but they did not have it either. O’well – like I said, did not really care for it so probable would not have watched it…. but for such a deal…. something inside me kept saying “get it….”

    • LadySiren is murdering her kids with HFCS and processed cheese says:

      I did well at Target. Xbox 360 for $199, but I got a $50 gift card back for buying the system, a $10 gift card for buying more than $100 in merchandise before 10 AM, and to top it off, I used $75 in Target gift cards I scored free (using reward points from my bank) to pay part of the $199 price.

      So if you factor in the amount of all my various gift cards, the price is: $199 – $75 – $50 – $10, for a grand total of $64 out of pocket for an Xbox 360.

  17. Costner says:

    12 gun security cabinet for $67 from Menards. Those are normally around $119 pretty much everywhere, so I was happy.

    Also picked up some Gladiator Garageworks 30″ cabinets from Sears for $99 each. Those are normally about $169 to $189 depending on where you buy them.

    Granted these aren’t gifts, but the season of giving is also the season of buying for myself as far as I’m concerned.

  18. Manny says:

    A Bissell 3 in 1 vac for $8.62 at Walmart. I bought two of them. I also got a 46″ Panasonic plasma TV from Sears with free delivery for $499. I got that a week before black friday during an online pre-black friday sale that had all the black friday stuff early.

  19. Mundo says:

    It was almost a full week before Black Friday began, but it’s hard to beat Age of Empires III with all expansions for $0.10 (no typo), DRM and “digital distribution only” be damned.

  20. agent 47 says:

    500 rounds of 9mm for $85.

  21. Hank Scorpio says:

    I don’t know if this counts, as it wasn’t on sale, but on Black Friday I picked up a few bottles of Goose Island Rare Bourbon County Stout, as well as a bottle each of the Vanilla BCS and Coffee BCS.

    I did have to stand in line in the freezing weather for an hour to get these, so I think it counts. (Much more worth while than standing in line for so-called “deals” at Best Buy or someplace.)

      There were WD 2TB external drives for $69 at Target. My store had plenty, even later on Saturday. Probably should have bought more than one.

  25. deejmer says:

    On the Amazon Wireless website (which I didn’t know existed) I got me two $100 EVOs. Time to dump Apple and AT&T!!! WOOOHOOO!

    • photoguy622 says:

      Amazon has great deals on wireless stuff, but they push the Kindle on the home page a lot so it’s easy to miss.

  26. Alecto says:

    I bought three nice cardigans and a denim jacket at JC Penney for $41. The normal retail for all four would have been over $150.

  27. somedaysomehow says:

    Got a $120 HP OfficeJet 6000 multifunction Wireless printer for $59 today through Walmart.com.

    Saturday/Sunday:
    $199 Roper washing machine for my grandmother (free delivery and free installation – she just wanted the cheapest I could find without regard to quality)

    32″ Dynex LCD HDTV 720p / 60Hz for $279
    $99 Sony BluRay Player
    $119 Acer 20″ LCD Monitor

    And a whole bunch of other gifts on Amazon… the ones I listed are the ones I’m most excited about though.

    I didn’t get all the best deals out there because I refuse to do any shopping on actual Black Friday – just too intense. But I think I got some decent ones. …I hope.

    Levi’s 501s $22 each including shipping from the Levi’s official store (!!)

    I got news of a pay freeze on Cyber Monday, Woot ! Woot!

  30. cupcake_ninja says:

    Few Blu Rays for $8 each. 500tc king size sheet sets for $20 ea.
    Other than those things I think the best decision was staying away from Best Buy. A friend of mine went to line up for their desktop/printer deal only to find that a family w/6 kids had been camped outside for 2 days. When Best Buy employees came out to hand out tickets for the hot items the family took all the tickets and scalped them to $20 ea to people who’d been waiting in line behind them. Needless to say, there was much rage to be had. Of course when people complained to Best Buy they said there’s nothing they can do about it.

      I was not far behind in line, maybe 60 people or so. I went straight to the hard drives….None left.
      They were saying 1 guy stuck them ALL in his basket. Lots of angry people there too.

  42. quadmama says:

    So…I placed 8 items in my Target.com cart last night but didn’t purchase them in hopes the prices would go down for Cyber Monday! I’ll be damned…one item went up in price by almost 50% and another is now out of stock. Learned my lesson, I guess, but I couldn’t help but take the chance.

  43. TheGreySpectre says:

    I bought a couple of games from steam that were pretty awesome deals.

    I was hoping the raid card I wanted would go on sale at newegg, but no such luck. Then again I knew it was kind of a lost hope anyways enterprise level electronics rarely go on sale.

    Logitech Harmony universal remote for $29.99 at target. It’s not the fancy one, but thank the heavens some brilliant person decided to make these programmable by USB. Typed in my model numbers, popped in the batteries, 2 minutes later, had a remote for my whole setup.

    Was totally worth the $30.

    Otherwise, I stayed the heck away from all mall and other stores all weekend.

    If you wait til Dec 26 & January alot of stores have clearance sales that beat the BF or Cyber Monday deals. Or just look for a decent sale that you have an actual chance of getting the item.

    $24 for a box set of Harry Potter films 1-6, from Amazon on their early Black Friday deals. I was going to hold out for the 1-7(ii) box set, but I’ll just buy the last two separately, because the kid was whining.

  59. MissMostlyMittens says:

    The Lord of the Rings Trilogy on Blu-ray it was supposed to be 76 dollars but Target honored their misprint. Got it with tax and shipping for $11.00. Down side is with the flood of orders they received I won’t get it till after Christmas but that’s okay I got it for me anyway.

  60. graytotoro says:

    Amazon’s Playstation 3 bundle deal with Uncharted 2, the Karate Kid blu-ray, and $25 video game credit. It’s the same deal as the Sears and a helluva lot better than the Best Buy and Target deal.

    Bonus Consumerist points for not going to Best Buy and that whole receipt nonsense.

  61. Elizabeth says:

    I scored: 9 pairs of jeans, 12 long sleeved T’s, 5 fleece vests, 2 pairs of gloves and hats, and I know I’m missing something, but long and short of it, I outfitted 5 people for $270 at Old Navy in clothes that are good and will last all winter. YAY me :-D

    A few years back I was able to snag Geist and Battalion Wars for the Gamecube dirt cheap from GameStop.

    That was the only year I ever went out for Black Friday as well.

  64. Outrun1986 says:

    Amazon had some incredible deals on video games, you could have probably even made money flipping some of them for what its worth. They had high profile titles like Dragon Quest IX and Professor Layton which rarely, if ever go below their MSRP’s at retail plus many other high profile titles.

    A $70 Logitech HD Webcam for $0.00 due to a programmign error on BestBuys website. It was supposed to be buy one get one free.. but If you put one in the cart it came up as $0.00

    For my husband I got a Tom Tom GPS for $79, for my daughter I got a $7.50 “puffy” vest at Target and for myself I got a HP laptop at Best Buy for $399. However, unlike you, I still have shopping to go. But if the sales keep up, I expect to be done with my Christmas shopping in the next couple of days. I love online shopping!

    37″ Vizio LED TV for $399. Was a misprint in an ad for Target (supposed to be $399 Vizio LCD TV) but they honored it for the TVs in stock. I bought two.

  71. jedifarfy says:

    Alton Brown cookbook set (Vol. 1 and 2 box set): regular price $75, half off @ B&N. In store, used membership for another 10% off, then a coupon for another 30% off. Got set for $25. :D

  72. Kohl's Retail Monkey says:

    Droid Incredible free with new activation (activation was also waived, and my monthly bill is now less since I switched providers)

    or my $3 slow cooker. That thing is badass.

  73. Hungry Dog says:

    One I missed was Amazons Triplefi 10 sale. $400 IEMs for $99. The only morning when all this starts that I did not get online.

  74. Halliday says:

    Best Buy: DJ Hero 1 for Xbox 360, game and turntable for $30.

  75. bookstoreguy says:

    Apple TV and HDMI cable for $107 with tax. Hell to the yes! Black Friday can suck it, Friends and Family got me the discount!

  76. SilentAgenger says:

    Target: For 10 bucks a pop I finally rounded out my collection of season 1-5 of The Simpsons on DVD. Kohls: a decent 5-piece set of luggage for about 28 bucks after additional discounts (I refuse to splurge on luggage since airport luggage handlers do not discriminate between cheap and expensive as they go about destroying baggage).

    I did snag a Nokia N8 for $389 from NewEgg’s Cyber Monday

  81. MFfan310 says:

    Black Friday and Cyber Monday were both “Buy Nothing Days” for me.

    That being said, I have picked up a few things before and after Black Friday. And they were still bargains: for example, two graphic Ts for $27 at Express last Wednesday after $10 off/shirt and a coupon. The price that Express normally charges is $29.90 for one tee, so I won out. I also finally picked up an Invisible Shield for my new iPhone on Saturday at Best Buy Mobile. Had I known that another store in the same mall installed Invisible Shields for free as opposed to the $7 that Best Buy charges, I would have gone there.

    Oh, and I also grabbed a tank of Shell gas (with Platformate!) to fuel these jaunts.

  82. Spaceman Bill Leah says:

    A lofted twin bed, mattress and cover from Walmart (yes, I know) all with free shipping to my house. I don’t remember what they actually cost but still, FREE SHIPPING.

    Samsung 40″ LED TV – $748 @Walmart

  88. BenjaminCachimbear says:

    60in 1080p 120Hz, 3D ready Mitsubishi from Dell $600 for me. A Pink Walter P22(S&W), semi-automatic handgun (10round clip), Day Spa package, and 70th Anniversary Super Special Edition Wizard of Oz bluray for the wife($360, $200, and $29 respectively). And yes the handgun may seem out of place, but she just started a new side business of her own, in which she has to travel a lot without me.

  89. thelauhingsun says:

    27 pairs of earrings and a watch for $21-odd + tax.

    Claire’s. Utilized a buy-two-get-one-free deal, multi-packaging, a 20% off coupon, and a free watch deal with minimum purchase.

    They’re not super-fancy, but a friend and I got our ears pierced 6 weeks ago so we need some studs fast to replace our crusty piercing studs. With this deal, she got 14 pairs of earrings for $10, and I got 13 pairs of earrings and a watch for $13. Not bad :)
