Talking Black Friday Success! Did you have any luck?

I made it to Petsmart at 7:00am waiting next to the crazy cat lady that bought what looked like a pallet of kitty litter but it was totally worth it! I picked up a Fluval Spec V for $49.99 and my big success purchase! A Fluval Spec 2 with no LED light that was on sale for $47.99 with an additional 40% off for a grand total of $28!!!

Anyone else do some black Friday shopping?

I'm at work, but actually, I stopped by the petsmart in my plaza for some hikari first bites, it was 730, a few minutes ago.

Well, I ended up walking out with a spec V lol and fish food.

Back on the forum after two moves across two years! Slowly getting back into the hobby!

I woke up at 7am, staggered to the bathroom and happily discovered a full bottle of Advil

Shopped online at Petco and got a $60 minibow for about $25 (with my $5 Petco Pals discount) with free shipping. Sweet! Also ordered a heater and a few other things from Fosters & Smith, altho wasn't as impressed with the discount there.

Razor, I too was best buddies with the Advil this morning!

I spent $160 on this morning when they erroneously had EVERYTHING marked down 50% with free shipping. I also got Petco to match Petsmart's 80 cent Cardinal tetra deal.

Not really. I had my eye on 2 SSDs on Newegg, both of which displayed incorrect prices after using the promo codes and were still sold out instantly when the prices actually worked. Ended up having to settle for a drive that was $15 more. Needless to say, I'm going to cease business with them. If you're going to put something on sale for Black Friday then at least have more than 3-5 of the things in stock, y'know? Not that I can't get most of the stuff on Amazon for the same price or less without having to fill out rebate forms and wait several weeks.
