Hey, way to only read one sentence of the post.

I might buy something on Cyber Monday, but rarely do I bother with that each year.

Even if you read both lines, the post makes sense. Maybe you should read the subject of this thread?

"Are you planning to shop online during Black Friday or Cyber Monday"

In the context of this thread, maus said he/she dislikes dealing with crowds when shop[ing] online during Black Friday or Cyber Monday.

I disagree, I think he/she was answering the two parts with separate sentences.

I am glad to be out of that mess, too. I have to get a gift somewhere between $20-$25 for the lucky recipient in our group. Lol.

I had my eye on a specific gas range now for a couple of years & Home Despot knocked it down $100 + discounted a range hood by $100 with free delivery, all from home, no crowds... while sipping my coffee. Best price I have ever seen on this model anywhere.

Bought them by clicking through a rebate site first that will add to the discount & my Citicard will double the warranty & also refund me the difference if any lower prices for 90 days are to be found.

Join the mobs at the stores? Uh-huh...

Thanks, duster1979, for defending my earlier reply. I thought my own post was clear to the average reader.


Anyways, shopping is one of my least favorite activities.

You definitely scored a great deal online for a stove.

Wow. Just wow. You went to great lengths on this one.

However, if you just read the the original post by maus in question, I can see where the other poster is coming from (and is actually correct).

As you state, the first question is about shopping online on black friday. And you you state, the response is:

"No, I generally hate shopping and I dislike dealing with crowds."

Yes, the maus goes on to say that he/she finds deals other times of the year. But, maus also identifies his/her concern with crowds while shopping online. So TexasLawyer2000's question makes complete sense.

BF, I got bf a brand new Ipad Mini for $200 through Walmart and saved on our hotels in Miami for our trip next month by rebooking on that day. I got myself a new vacuum through Best Buy as well on that day.
