    Nothing. Don't have the cash to splurge on stuff. Nothing's really caught my fancy anyway.

    At first it looked as if I would spend zilch on BF, but in the final hours I ended up buying a couple of movies on blu-ray, completing my Marvel collection.

    All the "big stuff" I've already gotten throughout the year, mainly a new (G-Sync) monitor and a GTX 1080.

    Re: QOTW: What did you buy on Black Friday 2018?

    Bought nothing due to there being no actual bargains, even 20/ 25% off was still overpriced.

    A new pair of safety boots for work. Not discounted, I'll claim some of the money back off the taxman though. Honestly this whole Black Friday thing doesn't interest me, I like my money where it is, they'll all have to work harder to earn it.

    Nothing - I never get that urge to go to a store and watch people climb over each other to get to stuff. ( on second thoughts.. mabey i should , could be entertaining to watch)

    Nothing.

    There was nothing I was specifically after, and most of the "deals" I saw were very ho-hum, yawn.

    The one or two that were so good I might have jumped despite not intending to buy were gone by the time I saw them .... or were never real, but were bait 'n' switch come-ons.

    In any event, the net result was nothing.

    I bought an Amazon Basic mini display port to HDMI cable. I don’t think it was particularly reduced because it was a Friday.
