As previously discussed, I'm curious how everyone spent their time shopping this year.  With more and more sales being online and offered before Thanksgiving Day, did you do much shopping in the stores; and if so, when was that majority?  I wasn't sure how to categorize the cyber Monday sales already starting, so use your own judgement whether it might have been something you'd have bought anyway even if it wasn't Monday yet.

 

Since this is my first poll, be aware of potential technical difficulties. :)

I think I ordered only two things online this year, less than recent years.  There were a number of reasons for that: in part because I was after smaller items, in part because I was traveling and had issues with the laptop that I was using, and due to time constraints that more affected my time to be in front of a computer than time to be in stores.  Still, by and large, I did pretty well.

 

i keep saying, "I'll get Black Friday right--next year!"

I ordered a majority of my items online, mostly from Best Buy, a few items from Amazon, a couple from Target/Walmart. Bought a handful of items from Target in store and at Walmart we got a bunch of things but money wise I spent the most online at Best Buy

i had all my electronics ordered by 1 am on black friday and some on wednessday. most all had shipped by friday morniing. I order on amazon and best buy. I had a big order coming from kohls of 12 items that only totalled 62.00 and it gave me 15.00 in kohls cash. They were all 75% off gifts. When I went out at 4am friday , i didn't expect to do anything but find some good buys for myself and small srtuff, but we hit menards first and it was crazy. I'd never experienced that. People were parking in the grass and no carts. Putting their stuff in trash cans and boxes. I finally found a big flat cart that was for sale and used it until i paid. 2 hours in tthat store but I found lots of good small presents .

some online early, a little online thursday, most in store thursday, a tinybit on Friday in store (JCPenney snowglobe caused me to hit Best Buy again for an extra copy of Inside Out 4 gift) and Macys on Saturday morning again (to take advantage of $ off coupon and get an extra espresso machine and rice cooker for friends).

It's been a pretty even split for us. Ordered some online and got some in stores. We won't shop on Thanksgiving in store so we got what we wanted online.

The bulk of my shopping was online. I ventured out to the outlets Friday morning and that was it.

I had planned to go to Walmart Thursday on the way home from my in-laws, but I got what I wanted Thursday morning.  What I didn't get Thursday, I got over the weekend.
