The day after Thanksgiving, ah the consumers’ day. For those who don’t know yet, Black Friday is where all the sales … big big sales happen. People line up way before store opening, the more popular stores get about 2 blocks of lines at probably 11pm. Just after Thanksgiving dinner. Now that’s what I call, tradition! 🙂
Bestbuy.com is now stirring things up a bit. They’re giving US$1,000 BestBuy gift cards for the “Ask A Blue Shirt” campaign. Mechanics? Well people need to submit a 250-word essay about how Black Friday and how it is becoming their family tradition.
Here’s their press release about this awesome campaign.
There will be 25 winners (each from 25 different cities/markets), each winning US$1,000 gift cards to spend this Black Friday. They will have limo service to and fro BestBuy stores AND they get to be the first in line on BF.
Consumers can submit stories on AskABlueShirt.com from October 29, 2008 – November 18, 2008. One winner in each market will be notified by November 24.
