I'm not completely sure it's PC to refer to them as Yanks, And to be perfectly honest I think there is currently 63,000 people who would answer your question with a swift No

what the F*** is wrong with people - I bet the majority are just unemployed using up their benefits. The items aren't even that good of a price!

Can't really blame the Americans for the UK's inability to prepare for the obvious

There's a clear-cut reason for the sales in the States - it comes the day after Thanksgiving, which is as big as Christmas. In effect, it's like a Boxing Day sale. Thanksgiving is a public holiday, so most workers take the Friday off as well and the shops try to draw in the crowds.

Over here, most people are at work so when they have a big sale like this on a Friday, everyone either tries to get there at midnight or goes online - causing the issues we've seen today.

people seem to have loads of money to spend nowadays

Should be called " Shades of Grey Friday ", nothing to get excited about, mainly just pure commercial hype.

Woof X)

the point for me is, even if you were not interested in this american PoS sale day, because of it, you can no longer access sites and buy things at normal price.. every participating site should have used a seperate server for such things.

People on jsa don't get up until the afternoon, don't blame them for those early morning crazy fools

any regular HUKD user will know that we can get better deals pre and post black friday anyway, so for us - it's kinda pointless.

in other words, every day on HUKD is Black Friday.

Error & rikki, Is there any need to keep on bashing those on benefits?

i wouldn't bother getting out of bed for a Daftpunkt or Haemorroid TV...it's all just cheap & nasty tat.

My apologies.

Are you sorted yourself now? I read your post a while ago re your situation. I hope its all going ok now.

This is so funny watching the nut jobs in the clips.

My Black Friday has so far consisted of purchasing a Hoover on Ebay for the usual price of £39 refurbished, then I am off down town to pick up my S4 mini from 3 Store after my parcel from Ebuyer a full priced Karcher Pressure washer has been delivered.

Oh what it feels like to be normal.

To be fair, would you not go mad if you pick an item up & some idiots trying to grab it off you.
