    As I am typing this, every single feed I have is filled with Black Friday offers. A lot of us saved for months on end to invest during these days, something that’s followed by the thrill of finding the best possible deal, that elusive drop in price that makes it all worthwhile.

    This thread is precisely for you to share with the rest of the Community your haul during this Black Friday and Cyber Monday. From a part that will make your computer shine to a piece of clothes and everything in-between. The question is: what are you planning to buy or what did you buy already?

    Everyone is aware of how shallow consumerism can be, so this is not the place for humblebragging at all. By sharing what you have carefully investigated, you are also helping those who are checking the thread to discover a good deal.

    And that is the second part of this line of conversation: if there’s an item that caught your attention, feel free to ask the opinion of others. That way you’ll feel more confident when the time arrives to go separate ways with your money.

    The thread is yours so let’s find some bargains together. The only thing I ask you is to keep this place a judgement-free zone. What is best for you is not necessarily great for someone else, so there are no right and wrong purchases.

    Also, while mentioning a deal, please include the market where that price is available, since we are a global hivemind and there are some exclusive deals to certain regions.

    All this said, let’s go, let’s see what you are getting during these days and may the power of savings be bestowed upon you.

    I managed to control my impulses. I'd love to upgrade my monitor but the truth is... the one I have works just fine. Moar pixels, moar Hz would be nice, but having savings is fun too.

    LG 29UM68. I checked if there were good deals for 34" 1440p 100Hz+ ultrawide displays, but things didn't really evolve in the last year or so. I'll wait until prices drop and HDR becomes more prevalent.

    I just found a deal (on my email inbox) that I would love to say yes to. Anova's Precision Cooker Pro, at half the price...

    This is the 3rd time I wasn't able to buy flash sales earbud cause it's sold out within 30 secs. When I click add to cart...it took a long time to load until it's sold out.Oneplus need to fix this bug..why bother alerting people only to be sold out in seconds. And also...don't automatically choose express shipping(cost more)

    Macbook Air for Mrs. BG.

    I've been looking for a good second hand, but people ask ridiculous prices for used gear, so I waited, and waited, and pulled the trigger on a new one Tuesday, for an incredible price.

    Also, Black Friday seems to be stretched to a month these days?

    Mind if I ask how much? I saw it going for 929€ and I would've definitely gotten one if my current laptop was 2 years older.

    Was going for the earbuds pro but it was a rat race hahaha loved the thrill and super happy there even was a sale. I wanted to get a pair for my wife cause I already own a charcoal black pair and I absolutely love them the more I explore the features the more that i love them... holidays have been rough financially so signed up for those 99cents for 2 months channels to watch some movies and shows. also been eyeing the PS4 deals those are looking really nice 👀

    Indeed, I bought a new 27' this morning and went with FHD too.

    Hey, that's also an investment. :p

    Hah, not at all. Look a few posts above and @dsmonteiro was excited with a Precision Cooker Pro.

    We are not boring, we are just getting old responsible. :D

    What do you mean "Sous Vide isn't exciting"?
