Q: The rampant shopping season is upon us. Name one of the most memorable deals you scored this year or from years past during Black Friday/Cyber Monday. You may explain why if the mood strikes.
A: Maybe 6 years ago, I scored 8 Duplo buckets for $7.5/each from [email protected] It was rather alarming at first to have to store so many. But it’s been so handy having them as I always had something to give whenever an occasion came up. I’m glad to say that I’m giving the last bucket to a 1.5 year old cutie pie this Christmas.
For anybody wondering how this works, well, it's simple. Answer the question and get a number based on your post in order between 1 and 59 for the UK national lottery bonus ball. If your number gets drawn on Saturday night, you win the prize. If you don't make the first 59 replies, well there's always next week to be a little quicker (copied from @stlux).
Up for grabs this week is the Target mini Millennium Falcon ‘polybag’ misspellings and all.Good luck!

Why is this lego related? It means that some of the lego presents I already bought them can now be given to ... me !
I'm now curious about the Gap codes- although I'm not sure they'd work in the outlet store near me
Best deal was a Dyson vacume priced at 400.00 that I got for 75.00 though not a black Friday deal.
thank you for hosting @SeijiAmasawa !!!
Not strictly Black-Friday related, but I managed to buy 3 x #75017s (Duel on Geonosis) @ 75% off at my local Tesco several years ago. Those were the days....!
To cut a long story short, ended up getting £60 worth of pantry purchases for nothing.
Nowadays, IMO, no deal out there is worth waiting in the cold for, especially with online shopping. Even then, it just seems like year after year, the BF deals just get less and less enticing. And when it comes to big ticket electronics, it just seems like only the 1+ year old models or made-for-BF stuff gets reduced. Everything else, I'd rather wait the month or 2 where the sale repeats itself or pay slightly more instead of dealing with the lines, traffic, and crazies that are out there during BF weekend.
Following @Fireheart 's rather large purchase from @Huw last week, @Fireheart very generously passed on his stonking deal by selling me the mint and sealed #8169 and #8214 Lambos for near rrp.
Very very happy.
TRU had a BOGO50% deal a few years ago. I wanted the Sith Fury Class Interceptor (the set with Darth Malgus). It was $90, but I couldn’t find another set for $90 that I wanted to really maximize the deal. I ended up adding a $50 Star Wars set, but the system didn’t take the 50% off of the $50 set...it took it off the $90 Malgus set. So, of course, I had to try something. I removed the $50 set from my cart, added one of those $10 planet sets they used to have. Sure enough, the $90 again dropped to $45. Happy Black Friday to me.
#10197 Fire Brigade, 10% off to bring it down to £90, knowing it was going to be discontinued very shortly afterwards. A few months later it was already at £250!
(But it wasn't bought for the value... I simply wanted it. A couple of days after buying, it was already built and displayed, still my first and only modular)
The other deal was iZotope Trash 2, which is completely unrelated to this board but an excellent distortion audio effect. Recommended to anyone that makes any kind of noise.
Now debating whether to keep it for myself, or give it to my 5 year old niece who has it as the #1 item on her Christmas wish list...
Thanks for organising this week @SeijiAmasawa! And no need to credit me for how this works; pretty sure I copied that paragraph from somebody else ;)
