Do you think that Black Friday would be more fun if you just got your big jackpot check cleared just in time for the silly season?? I love looking over the newspaper after Thanksgiving dinner and seeing what's on sale myself, but ive only ventured out once with one of my sister's and we racked up, but if I won the lottery and had an endless supply of cash it would be even more fun...but of course if i won the lottery, well everyday would be black Friday LOL....but that's me how about you??

    billionaire2bee,

    Are you yanking our chain here?

    I can't think of someone winning multi-millions and dealing with Balck Friday crowds and hustle bustle.

    To each their own, but golly.

    Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

    Lep

    There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

      LOL if you re-read what I wrote I also said "Or would everyday be your black friday" as well...I mean people with money have done crazier things...like for one diving with great white sharks in South Africa, and chumming up the water so they will raise up like Jaws and you can scratch them on their noses...Makes black Friday seem like a walk in the park don't it?

        That would be me!  I love Black Friday shopping I just love being part of the crowds and hustle and bustle!  But there is nothing I want to buy enough to queue hours for.  Well, last year I did queue for almost an hour at Starbucks.  I usually just have fun on Black Friday and do my serious shopping on a different day.

            I'm not much of a shopper but I would likely use the good online deals for stuff I needed to outfit my new digs!!!  PartyShopping amongst the crowds...not a chance.

              But real shopping is the fun of Black Friday!  I find online shopping so unfullfilling!  And am always disappointed when the merchandise arrives in a plastic bag or cardboard box.  I always end up returning anything online!!

                  I'm frugal with my money now, but I still don't do black friday shopping. I did give it a try last year with my wife. I won't do it again, therefore with millions of dollars, I might just go for the "after Christmas sale"

                    That is what makes it fun going out in the middle of the night its cold out maybe a little bit of snow!  But I am drawing a line and not shopping on Thanksgiving Day!!

                      Black Friday has now become Brown Thursday!

                      That being said, no matter how much money I have (but especially if I have "silly money" forever) I will never, ever ruin a family holiday to go shopping. Nor will I ever go shopping @ 4-6am to fight unhappy masses trying to kill me to save $100.

                      I certainly don't need that $100 myself, now or ever.

                        I would specifically NOT shop on black friday if my jackpot check cleared. Not because I wanted to avoid lines and crowds and all that. But my first purchases will not be anything on sale. I want to buy all the expensive stuff and have the receipts to prove it!

                          When you have big money like a lottery win, much changes they say! Would I look for sales, sure I would, however I wouldn't waste much time penny pinching. That's 1 of the joys of having big money! ROFL

                          Money is a terrible master, but a great servant...Smile

                            I know some VERY wealthy people and they ALL pinch pennies.  Coincidence?

                              I don't want to deal with Black Friday crowds now. No way I'd deal with them if I had millions.

                              People getting trampled to death, fists being thrown around, tasers being pulled out, guns being pulled out... no thanks.

                              I'll wait until almost equally as good sales happen at other times throughout the year.

                               

                              I went to a Black Friday at Best Buy in college. Most disappointing thing ever, besides the free coffee and donuts. They had good sales on laptops but they were all really terrible ones and there were still people yelling about who got there first. I think I ended up buying a cheap USB stick that had like 4GB of storage.
