  1. Come to think of it, I haven’t seen ANY black friday deals that really knock my socks off. Has anyone else? You’d think with the economy, they’d be pulling out all the stops.

  2. clyde2801 writes, “You’d think with the economy, they’d be pulling out all the stops.” If by “they” you’re referring specifically to Apple, they have little need to pull out those stops. I expect Apple Stores will be rather crowded with shoppers today.

    To the list of alternative sources, I’d add MacConnection. I bought my iMac (and iPod Touch and other stuff over the years) from them.

    That is because Black Friday is a scam. It is the “discount” price retailers would like to sell you an item for and not the price they would sell it to you for if they found themselves on Dec. 23 with too much inventory.

    In other words these prices are arbitrarily set by retailers and not free market prices. People should stay home today so, the real savings can begin in about a week. Nothing lowers prices like nervous retailers.

    just my $0.02

  4. Black Friday prices are equal to yesterday’s Education Store prices – and today, on Black Friday – there is no extra discount on those eduction prices.

    So what Black Friday really means is that everyone is a Freshman today.

  5. @Raymond in DC. By ‘they’ in my second post, I meant tech and other retailers in general. I know Apple’s not going to give away any deep discounts on Black Friday or any other day.

  6. Clyde:

    And you are right. Apparently, no other retailer believes that a massive loss-leader would bring in enough wallet-opening folks in order to recoup the losses. Some tried it last year and took a major beating, so even retailers are cautious this year. Couple that with the fact that the saving rates are a bit higher than last year (i.e. people have a bit more money saved than a year ago), and you have yourself a rather lackluster Black Friday.

    Apple did this year what they do every year — lower it by few percentage points, just to nominally participate in the game.
