What did you buy / plan to buy on Black Friday?

Black Friday 2016 is the one day that budget shoppers wait for the whole year.

The one-day shopping event that these days often extends to the whole weekend and continues with more deals on Cyber Monday is set to beat previous years sales records. There is a good reason for that: you can save hundreds of dollars on the best phones of the year and get most of them for free with an eligible trade-in at the major carriers. iPads and other tablets are also discounted hugely, and of course there are all other sorts of sales on wearables, electronics and what not.

With so many people waking up in the wee hours to stand in line in front of their local Best Buy, Target or other store, we can't help, but wonder: what are you planning on buying and what have you actually bought?

Have you been delaying a purchase, anticipating the 2016 Black Friday sales? And what do you think about the whole Black Friday craze and the discounts this year: are you happy with them? 

We're curious to hear your thoughts in the comments below.

Nothing, the so called deals are s**te. Best to wait until it's over and wait for the real offers.

Picked up a Pixel 128GB for $360 through Verizon. If not for it being over 50% off, I probably would've just stuck with my 6p, but that was too good to pass up.

I planned to buy a new TV, Blu-ray player, a tablet, coffee maker, a SSD, a HDD, PC power supply, GTX 1080, possibly a 4K monitor and a few other random things. Got called in so missed out on everything except some of the PC parts.

Wanted to buy the Jaybird BlueBuds X3, but they were officially sold out everywhere online. On eBay, they're selling for higher than the official price...
