    I was with my mom at Crystal Mall (the Asian mall near Metrotown) on Black Friday at 10am (Pretty early right?). But it was raining SO HARD that day that I didn't want to bus home, so I left with my mom without taking a single step towards Metrotown... I still regret it now because I heard there were some really good deals!

    I tried really hard NOT to buy anything but broke down and purchased 3 "Mystery Grab Bag" t-shirts from TeeFury at 6$ each. Such an amazing price! I couldn't resist! I hope at least one of them is a Dr Who-themed shirt!
  • Sandra
    I spent all Friday morning shopping and taking advantage of various Black Friday sales, cripe even the grocery stores had them, Sobey's back bacon for half price and 5 pound bag of potatoes for 99 cents stand out in my mind, but my big purchase was cyber Monday when I ordered a laptop from Future shop.
  • Jennifer L.
    I didn't do any shopping this year. There are so many deals now - it overwhelms me.
  • Denise L.
    I saw you listed the roots sale here. I am travelling here and wanted the "fanny pouch"- so i went online and checked the price. Flat bags, as they are called were 30% off and not the 25% as advertised. Even so, I decided to call the Roots Factory store on Orfus, and they tell me that the same bag I wanted is $98 and no sale. I went right back to the site, ended up paying $60, and got free delivery. So thanks Bargainmoose for the idea!
  • Linda
    Hello: Yes, we purchased a Sony Coolpix camera and a tablet and saved a considerable amount of money.

    I decided to not actually buy anything, but I did browse a variety of deals online.
  • Lisa S.
    I shop on-line all year round but surprisingly did not find time to shop online on Cyber Monday, I was too busy working to pay off the bills from buying some new, much needed Winter wear on Black Friday...
  • Mishelle
    I did a lot of shopping on the Think Geek site - my children are geeky like me so it was easy! Mishelle
  • Alcide D.
    I also browsed a lot, had found something I wanted (mocassins at Sears) but when it came time to pay, none were left with my size. I also could not make up my mind for a cruise.
  • Nada
    This year we saved by not spending at all :)
  • Lyne M.
    I did not go out to buy on Black Friday - just tried to catch up with my grading - I am a college professor, and 'tis the time for term papers!
  • Deb
    Stood in line to exchange a gift shirt - the cashier couldn't believe I did that - but that was the only time I could do it.
  • pickles01
    I did not go out on black Friday. I love Bargain moose! Thanks for the chance to win!
  • ada
    I went online and bought my mom some wireless headphones. I was already going to buy them and then the price dropped, so it was a no brainer.
  • Leanne
    I bought on both days - but went early on Friday! Good idea!
  • Pam
    On Black Friday I bought a lot of the fleece sweaters and pants that were on sale at Children's Place for $4.99 plus I had a 20% off coupon and a bonus airmiles coupon. I also picked up 10 handsoaps from Bath and Body Works for $20. I had a $10 off $30 purchase from there.
  • Kelly S.
    I completed all of my Christmas shopping on black Friday... so it wasn't black at all ! It was green ! And now i can enjoy the rest of the Christmas season, stress free ! I could however use a new phone.... i am using my original flip phone, about 10 years old.... i can't seem to make up my mind about which phone to upgrade to, but you could make that decision for me !
  • Gina
    We bought an IPAD mini for our daughter for Christmas and some winter clothes online from Old Navy. Now Mommy needs a treat! Good luck to everyone!
  • Rebecca H.
    I did some damage to my credit card on Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Most of the deals I got were for beauty products, but I got some great deals! Some places were offering free shipping to Canada, so it was a great opportunity to try new products without having to shell out a $15-$20 shipping fee.
  • Andrea M.
    I agree with someone else's comment - there were too many deals, commercials, flyers, etc. that I was overwhelmed! But I can see how an organised person could stand to save a lot of money if they were not sidetracked by items not on the list. I didn't buy anything, though I now regret not jumping on a car seat that was a hot buy at Costco....we need another. Happy holidays everyone!
  • Gary T.
    I did a A LOT of browsing but ended up keeping the wallet closed!
  • Cyndi
    Nope, it was tempting but didn't spend a penny
  • Deanne S.
    I actually resisted the urge to buy as I can't decide what to get the kids this year!
  • Jack S.
    Lots of window shopping but didn't leave any cash at the black friday shops.
  • Jenny
    Gave up once I got to the Rainbow bridge and turned around!
  • Cheryl M.
    I always check in stores for unadvertised specials when shopping, many stores do this. While I was in shoppers drug mart I noticed some pretty beach bags by Quo ( their cosmetic line) regularly $15.00 marked down to $1.99, I bought all three. Even though they're out of season the beach bag can be a general purpose bag.
  • Rakesh
    Well there was some great deals it's all most feel like boxing day sell. I did spend for Christmas gift, it really saved me money.
  • Ang
    Alas; I did succumb. I picked up an ipad 2 for the inlaws and 7" tablet for my Dad; also a couple ipod dock clock radios for 2 of my kids. Ho, Ho, Ho!

    I did do a bit of shopping,...bought a bunch of body butters, etc from The Body Shop and got some dvd's from!!
  • Sparkle
    I stayed far away from the maddening crowd, didn't even shop online. I hate crowds and lineups, a person could spend their time doing something they loved instead of that. I don't need anything that badly!

    I went crazy at the Toy's r Us with the 1/2 off toys and baby supplies!
  • Sarah
    The only thing I bought was $400 in calendars from Vistaprint -- at $5 each, that is the cheapest I've ever seen them anywhere, and their quality is great. They feature my photography and I will be re-selling them, so hopefully I make all my money back! Koodo and Telus are the only types of cell phones that work at my acreage, so I wouldn't mind having another around!
  • Trisha
    I went to ToysRUs and got some Christmas pressies for the kids.

    I bought a Lego kit for my nephew. If I wasn't unemployed, I would have taken advantage of a lot more deals than that! :)
    I checked out a few online sites but I started to feel a little overwhelmed after awhile...It was hard to tell what was really a "deal"! The credit cards stayed in my wallet!
  • crys
    Wish i could have afforded the deals..... Finances suck. Nice phone and good luck to everyone. Merry christmas.
  • MJ M.
    Far too busy at work to think about shopping or deals. Wish that it would slow down soon.
