It Pains Me to Say It **UPDATED**

I am going to be one of those people. One of the crazy ones at a store while it is still dark. On the day after Thanksgiving. Normally I avoid the Black Friday craziness. I usually don't need/want anything that warrants getting out so early. But not this year. I found my mixer for a price I can't pass up. So now the only question is do I really need to be there when the doors open at 4:00 a.m.? I mean, how many people are going to be buying a mixer that day? Also, I really want a black one, and the ad is white. I will buy a white one if I have to, to save the money. But I'm hoping for black. I'm so silly.

**Update** Thanks so much for the tips ladies. I did see the one available on Amazon, but Husband really wants me to try to get it for a lower price. I will go to Kohl's when they open, and if I don't get what I want, then I will just get one online probably. Also, I will check the ads on Thursday to see if anyone else has them on sale, since Kohl's is not in my town and is about 20 minutes away. I'm sure to let y'all know what happens in the end.

  1. Don't do it!!! Kohl's is the worst on black Friday. The line was the longest ever and they only had like 10 of each item on sale and they were long gone to those who were there at midnight. Pay the extra $ and get one at Sam's. It's worth the sanity!

  2. hey
    Costco has one on sale too. This one is the 475 watt mixer and the 5qt. stainless bowl - professional bowl lift design. $239 with coupon. You can have my coupon if you want. I agree with veronica. Get the one you want even if it means a few dollars more and less headache. You'll be glad you did.

  3. I agree with Veronica - Kohls is the WORST.
    If you go, get there right at 4am :)

    I worked at kohls for 3 weeks once while I was home from college on Christmas break. NEVER AGAIN.

  5. Wow, I've never been a black Friday shopper, until last year when the sales didn't go as expected and the stores around here redropped the prices late in the evening. We heard it on the radio and headed out to no crowds and great deals.
    As far as the mixer I am going to disagree with everyone. It is still a mixer regardless if it is black or white, if it is a difference of $20 to $30 bucks then get the one you want. If it is a difference of more than that, get the mixer and don't worry about the color. I hope the Amazon deal works out, otherwise it could be fun to be out at 4am if you are getting something you REALLY want. Mind you, this comes from someone who has never been out at 4am shopping so your probably better off following the above advice *smile* Let us know what happens!

  6. I heard on the radio that the special Kohl's price is AFTER a mail-in rebate. I wonder how much it costs on Friday.

  7. Well, whatever you do, you'll love your stand mixer. I got mine [red to match!] last year for Christmas. Love it!

  8. Hi Nicole! I really can't remember if I've ever commented here before, but I thought of you this morning when I noticed that Wal-Mart has revealed a secret in-store special on a KitchenAid Classic Stand Mixer...$139 on Friday from 5-11a.m. I don't know if this option sounds any more appealing to you than standing in line at Kohl's at 4a.m., but I thought I'd pass the word along! :)
