I thought the prices were ridiculous! - Twitter Black Friday/Thanksgiving and last-minute shoppers drove conversation spikes

Walmart needs to get their sh** together!!! #walmartsucks! I will never understand why people participate in #BlackFriday sales... I would prefer sleep anyday over long lines and pissed off people Dearest Rude girl at Walgreens.. I understand you're not happy about working on Thanksgiving, I get it. But at least you're not out buying.. @(User) yeah last night.

  • 9. Copyright 2014 Visible Technologies, Inc. All rights reserved.9 Why? No crowds and lines Online retailers offer Black Friday deals Research during POS Greater selection online Excellent deals More brick-and-mortar stores offer online deals Ability to handle last-minute orders Free shipping But shopping at all the stores you want at the same time in sweatpants and your own chair is better than leaving the home. Tempting to order something online... but I don't want to inconvenience my relatives by asking them favors to line up for me and whatnot. Are there black friday sales via amazon as well? I love doing research when shopping. I feel all studious! Sample Verbatim My 1st year buying most of my xmas gifts online via @amazon Prime Canada. Easy, quick delivery, & great selection. Well done, Amazon! I never bother going to an actual store on Black Friday. It's just not worth it, besides the online deals usually end up being just as good or better I love amazon prime! You get free 2 day shipping if more than $25 order! It was perfect for the last minute online shopping. But man, I feel bad for this person who's going to deliver it on my door at 8pm! Black Friday will continue to draw large crowds! Evolving holiday behaviorsmigrating from traditional to online
