    Black Friday

    Against all better judgement, we went to the mall during Black Friday. While waiting patiently in line I began to wonder why it was taking so long as most folks only had an item or two. It was then I heard that the guy at the front of the line had decided to apply for the store credit card to get another 10% off. Really? On Black Friday? With lines of angry people waiting to checkout?? Right as hostilities began to erupt, the guy had finished and got his extra 10%. I'd have given him 20 bucks just to get the hell moving, and all he bought was a pair of slacks.

    I never go out on Black Friday other than the grocery store or BJ's. My son and his gf were home and she wanted to pick up something she can't get where they live, so we went out. The same thing happened-they were pushing the store's credit card-one person with three items-over 10 minutes because she applied for the credit card.

    Can't complain. Got a deal from the Punta Cana resort where we're going to stay next May that was BRL 3,000 (USD 900) cheaper than the previous booking I had made (which was already pretty decent). Cancelled the first one (full refund) and made a new reservation.

    All the best from Brazil

    cyber Monday

    i scored well with Aruba Aloe (for paul and I and a few for gifts) Yankee Candle the large jar candles 5/$55 saving of $85, and some card making supplies/stamps and embellishments a 45% off.

    we thought long and hard about the divi cyber monday sale and took a pass.
    even at $300 a night (reflecting a 50% savings) that is still a big chunk of change to spend on vacation.
    we'd rather spend less and go 2x a year instead.
