Buyer's remorse. Only cure is buying more junk we don't need.

I for one prefer it like this black friday & flamedeer days drive me nuts so many false voting and deals.

It's like this every year. Dozens of new deals every hour every day for weeks then silence

I have noticed that since Amazon increased their free delivery to £20 that's when the deals all dried up. now its just random rubbish or the biggest TV sizes possible.

I completely agree with you. I presumed that loads of cracking deals would start coming again after xmas but I think it's been a bit of a disappointment. I guess I suppose it all depends on what appeals to you/what your looking for.

LOL Flamedeer and BF!

I thought BF was pretty cold this yr compared to the last few.

I think there was sweet spot when post recessions, there were a lot of deals about and there was a good buzz about the site.

Some deal posters also get a lot of negativity which puts them off, no doubt.

Also "waste deals" like those on PCP car deals, where the product is negotiable anyway just fill the pages. And in turn the threads fill with worthless comments about cars from people who don't own them or drive them.

I think the site needs a bit thinning out so there is less rudeness, less clutter and to encourage deal posters back.

black friday was abysmal. I didn't purchase anything. Personally got better deals before & after.

New to this site, but have had a few good deals around Xmas, plus the ask section has been really interesting, funny at times, and in my case people have been really helpful, but I agree some quite rude and obnoxious people post negative things.

​I would suggest the last 2 were not a patch on 2014!

Because after the new year sales they hold off with the sales for the Easter sales.
On top of that people try to cut back on buying due to new year's resolution so less people out looking and posting deals.

Given that Amazon posts the same bloody products at the same 'discounted' price day in day out, Black Friday appeared to be just another normal day.
