Well that isn't even a question. Steam has thousands of video games, many of which are free, or under $5.

Only on-line and ONLY if the discount is at least 25% off something I wanted anyway.

We have been planning to buy a cargo bike capable of carrying two kids + cargo for a while. The bike we're interested in will be going on sale at midnight MST (11pm for us) so we'll get online and hopefully save a few hundred $$.

This is actually the first time I've ever planned to look for a "deal" on anything during Black Friday.

Actually entering a physical store such as Walmart or a mall that day? I'd rather be dead.

No, never. I can see how it might be fun, if you had a group of sisters or friends who did it for an annual tradition.
If I am shopping for a certain item, I'll look for a deal online.

Online possibly. In an actual brick and mortar store? Never.

No, I have never shopped on Black Friday. This year there is even less reason to do so. Family and relatives have decided just for each of us to buy one gift for a "White Elephant" exchange; that game where you either pick from the pile or from the person that picked before you. More fun that way anyways. My friends and I don't exchange gifts, so no worries there. Will be nice to concentrate on other things instead...getting cards mailed out, donating to a local charity, perhaps going to a holiday event or two, and saving some dollars.
