Original Post: Now that it’s November, it’s time for many of us in North America to gear up for one of the most anticipated holidays of the year – Black Friday, a day when peace on Earth and goodwill towards men are thrown out the window in favor of violently climbing over each other to get a few bucks off a new TV. We’re officially smack-dab in the middle of the most wonderful time of the year – the time when international corporations unleash information on the deals they plan to offer after you’ve finished your turkey in order to lure you into the Thunderdome.
One of the first scraps comes from our corporate overlords at Target, who will offer a buy two, get one free deal on PlayStation 4 games on the big day, confirmed in a mailed advertisement:
A number of games are listed, though the ad notes that more than just those pictured will be part of the deal. The fine print also notes that the three games purchased must be different titles, so you won’t be able to nab three copies of Battlefield 4 for you and your buddies – that’s right, Steve, the plutocracy knows what you’re up to and they aren’t having any of it.
As we get closer and closer to the holiday, more and more of this info will come at a fast clip, so get ready to froth at the mouth as the oligarchy offers you more and more ways to spend your money on ultimately meaningless drivel and thus continue to self-medicate yourself with an ever-growing pile of consumer goods. After all, by the time Black Friday hits, you’ll have spent an entire day barely putting up with family and eating better than some undeveloped countries do in an entire year. You deserve to go head-to-head with your fellow man over a few bucks, right?
Start training. May the odds be ever in your favor.
