Hi all,

This week's poll question is about all the holiday deals going on this year. Discuss here the best deals you've found so far, and, if you like, the poll results themselves.

Thanks,
Justin

Frankly I don't bother with any of them, especially as here in the UK the public seems to have gone raving made and are practically killing each other for them:

There always seems to be some way of getting the same things at a close price at some later date.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

I don't keep up with that anymore. I buy a few silver dollars on ebay for grandkids and a few gift certificates and I'm done. But I'm sure the big items this year are going to be the same as always--big TVs, computers, video games and phones. For what it's worth I've noticed the sale prices people wait in line to take advantage of on black Friday are often repeated just before Christmas.

Now, understand I'm not asking for myself but Derek was wondering if we'd be getting those big computing.net bonuses again this year. . .

I also refuse to participate in "madness" called Christmas shopping. If I need something, I'll buy it when I need it. Christmas has become so commercial, I'm turned off by the whole event it's become. I enjoy the decorations, the food and the cookies etc., but to run around like cattle, buying things for people that they don't need, and spending money they don't have is just pure insanity. I could go on, but I'll spare everyone and stop now. Still looking for my CN bonus check,lol !!!!

Hi Grasshopper,

is your middle name Scrooge? :-)

Regards - Mike

ps I actually totally agree with you.
Listening to the adverts here in the UK, I am going to have a miserable Christmas, unless I spend a fortune.

Hi Mike,

I have actually been called "Scrooge", but I don't care. If one dares to be different, he should be prepared to pay the price. I'm too far along in life (old ) to care what people think of me. The things that are important to me, you can't buy. Like the Beatles said, " Let it Be." Have a nice holiday despite it all.
