I myself bought nothing. Nothing at all on Black Friday. I buy about 99% of all Christmas Gifts on Amazon. The prices are excellent (not always the absolute lowest) and they're free of sales tax and come with free fast shipping.
There's one catch: I don't want my gifts sitting around from December 1 to 25. I wouldn't have the self-control not to open them and neither do most of my friends & family. I want them to arrive on/around December 21-23. The problem is, you can't "schedule" the deliveries on Amazon.com.
So Amazon: here's my request: let people schedule gift deliveries with a 3-4 day window before the selected event. Then I would do more shopping on Black Friday or Cyber Monday or whatever. More money from me. I know you want it.
