DISCUSS BLACK FRIDAY &

WIN AWESOME PRIZES!

Here's how it works:

 

Due to the "unique" nature of this year's Black Friday there may not be as much discussion of actual Black Friday sales, but we should still have some great discussion of all the other sales and deals that will make up this year's Black Friday "season" and I didn't want to not have a contest this year, so here we go:

Through Monday, November 30th (at 11:59:59pm EST), you'll earn one entry into the contest every time you post in one of the Black Friday forums including this main Black Friday Discussion subforum and the Posted Ad Discussion subforum.

As usual we're not going to require your posts to be a certain length to qualify or anything like that - we just want a lot of great discussion. We know there are times when a one-word reply is fine. All posts in all threads in these forums will count, including other contest threads.

Be aware that it's pretty obvious if someone is attempting to "game the system" by posting repeatedly to get more entries. If that happens, we will give you ONE warning via PM. If we see the behavior continuing, you will be disqualified from winning a prize.

This includes posting multiple times in a row in a single thread when one post would be enough, replying to many threads with nothing but "thanks!", etc... as I said, it'll be obvious if anyone does this, so don't do it. There is plenty to discuss without having to cheat to earn additional entries.

So create interesting threads, reply to other members' questions, give your opinions on everything that is being discussed. This is a discussion board - let's have some interesting discussion here!

On Tuesday, December 1st we will randomly select 5 winners from all eligible entries and you will win the prizes shown below:

1st Prize: $200 Gift Card to the Retailer of Your Choice
2nd Prize: Amazon Fire 7" 32GB Tablet with Case and Echo Dot Bundle
3rd Prize: Amazon Kindle Paperwhite E-Reader and Echo Dot Bundle
4th Prize: Google Nest Home Hub 7" Smart Display
5th Prize: Roku Streaming Stick+ 4K Media Player

Prizes must be claimed by replying to the winner notification PM here on the forum by January 31, 2021 or they will be forfeited.

And as a benefit to those who were here early this year, all the posts in the forums up until now aside from the prize club thread(s) will also count towards this contest.

If you have any questions, feel free to PM me and I'll be happy to answer them.

I still remember what a blessing it was that I was the lucky “big winner” last year. I was in a pretty tight spot financially and the gift card went a long way to help.

While I definitely am not expecting to win anything this year, I definitely enjoy participating every year. Thanks for doing this, Brad!

For those curious: Kitty in my pic is current furbaby, Mew, curled up in a box far too small for her. Ha! "If I fits, I sleeps!"

 

NASCAR fan (particularly JGR pit crews - many friends there), diehard UM Wolverine fan, animal lover, car girl, cookie baker, singer, bargain hunter. Yep. That about covers it. lol :cool:

Yes it will be different, but the trade off will be good for many families with a lot of retailers closing on Thanksgiving completely this year.

aside from the prize club thread(s)...

 

Struggling to understand why you would preclude posts to the prize club thread.  Doing so makes it even harder to maintain interest in that thread beyond, "in for September."

I honestly don't even know what I'm going to look for this year, but the things I have in mind, like Air pods, I'm wondering if there will be any decent sales on.

I think you’ll find deals on those. I’ve already seen sales with $50-$80 off the Pro model.
