Time for another contest!

To enter, just reply to this thread with your answers to these 3 questions. Simple as that.

Here are the questions:

1. How much money do you anticipate spending the entire week of Black Friday, online and in stores combined?
2. If you plan on shopping offline on Thanksgiving and/or Black Friday, how many different stores do you predict you'll shop at?
3. Do you anticipate shopping online more than last year, less than last year, or about the same as last year?

 

No need to be exact with these, just trying to get a general idea what people are thinking this year.

The contest will run until Thursday at 8pm ET. We'll choose 20 members at random from those who reply (and haven't already won a shirt) and you'll each win a Black Friday t-shirt.

Good luck to all!

1) I'm *hoping* to spend no more than $300.  In actuality, it'll probably be more like $500.

2) I typically hit anywhere from 10-12 stores, and it'll probably be much the same this  year...I do BF alone, because I have no brave friends who are willing to go with me here... :(

3) I will probably shop online about the same amount as in previous years.  It seems last year I spent a lot of time returning things I'd already bought because I found it cheaper online, and therefore actually spent a good bit online...I'm willing to make that effort with a better deal, for sure!

1. It depends on the ads, still waiting on the Walmart ad, but probably under $300 for the whole week. Small budget and I've been buying already.

 

2. I usually stick to WM, Dollar General, and Walgreens; but DG and Walgreens didn't excite me this year. But my mother wants to try going to Kmart, so probably 2 stores. Walmart and Kmart.

 

3. I will not be shopping online during Thanksgiving week, so same as last year.

Hopefully my budget will be about $500 or a little more

 

Probably quite a few JCPenny, Dollar General, Sears etc it really depends on how the online shopping goes.

 

I hope to shop more online this year than last year.

1. Around $500.
2. I usually go to Walmart, Kmart, Menards and some local shops. About 5 to 10 total.

1.  I hope to have at least 600.00 to spend but it depends on my husband's work.

 

2.  We usually go to Walmart, Belk's, Target, Goody's, Martins, and I need to go to Pet Smart this year.  We visit several other stores as well.  I would say around 10-15 stores total!

 

3.  I didn't buy anything online last year, but, if I see I can get a deal online earlier, then I may.  It just always scares me that my item will show in stock and then I'll get an email saying that they are out..  So, I prefer going into the store.

1. It all depends on the ads. I'm waiting to see what Target, Walmart, best buy and staples have to offer. I hope to spend under 300.

2. I'll probably hit 6-8 stores.

3. If I can get a good deal online I'll gladly buy from online vs in store.

1. Around $1000, plus or minus a bit.

2. Offline there just aren't that many in my small town rural area. I will probably go to 6 or 7.

3. I hope to shop more online--last year got almost everything I was looking for online. Had to keep an eagle eye on the times and the deals.

1. Have just over $300 total saved up so far for Christmas, so that or less depending on the ads.
2. Probably around 6 or 7 stores, not counting however many I check out in the mall. Usually end up at Walmart 3 or 4 times before it's all said and done lol.
3. I prefer to shop in stores over online, but will buy a few things online here and there. So probably about the same as last year.

First my parents can't go out on Black Friday, they are both handicapped and can't be up that long, so I end up taking my mom's list and money and doing her shopping and my shopping.

1: My mom plans on spending $500-$800, and I plan on spending no more than $300.
2: Last year I hit seven stores, and this year should be about the same.
3: I plan on being about the same as last year, maybe a little less, my mom may end up doing a bit more.

Because of the server issues, if you posted at all on Monday, you'll have to re-post your answers to count for the contest.

I look to spend about $300

 

I will only be shopping at Sam's, Kohls and Walmart depending on the ad.

 

I do most of my shopping online so I plan to do that again this year.

I'll probably spend around $500

 

I'll be doing probably all my shopping online and the number of stores is limitless, can't decide what I want to get people.

 

I've been doing online since my back went out in 09 so I figure I'll stick with that again.  It's just easier then standing in lines.

1. It depends because I just started a new job so my budget is wonky, but I'm anticipating somewhere between $100-$300. Not a lot because I'm usually more interested in the smaller stuff.
2. I usually hit Target first later on Thanksgiving night, and when it's all said and done I make it to Kmart, Michaels, Best Buy, and possibly a few others by the end of Saturday.
3. I'm not really sure. I really like the convenience of online but the fun of it is going to the store and having the gifts in your hands and talking to people in line and etc. If I decide to get a laptop for my husband I'll probably try to get that online. So I guess a little more than last year. :)

1. ~$1000 (my holiday shopping should be done)
2. ~7, but that will depend on WM's ad
3. About the same, usually 50/50 in-store/online

Don't see my answers - so I guess mine were lost in the crash...

Here they are again:

 

1) around $1,000.00

2) I only do my shopping online.

3) All of my shopping - but a few more stores this year.

2. I plan for at least 4 stores: Kohl's, TRU, Sam's, Home Depot.  The rest will depend on the ads.
3. There will be more online shopping for me this year, than last.  I've already picked up a few things along the way!
