Black Friday Myths Debunked – Top 14 Black Friday Myths Busted

Black Friday 2015 Deals, Black Friday Shopping Facts, Black Friday Myths and Black Friday Fights Myths Debunked!

MYTH: Black Friday Sales Begin on Black Friday

Actually, several major retailers will launch their Black Friday sales as early as two weeks before the namesake day. Amazon, for example, will offer deals starting on November 19. We even see some deals sell out before Black Friday. Luckily, you can use this shopping tid bit at the dinner table as an excuse to step away from your drunk Uncle Roger.

MYTH: Stores Have Ample Stock of Doorbusters

Unfortunately many “doorbusters” are exceptionally low-priced items meant to generate buzz and entice shoppers in-store. Most retailers have very limited quantities of these products, and it’s likely that only the first few shoppers in line will snag them. For example, last year’s mythic Sharp 42″ HDTV deal for $199 at Best Buy was epic, but the retailer only guaranteed 10 units per store.

MYTH: You Need to Camp Out in Line to Get the Best Black Friday Deals

If you’re looking for an in-demand, limited-stock doorbuster, then being first in line when a store opens may be necessary to secure a highly coveted product. But these days, more and more Black Friday deals are available online as well as in-store. In fact, last year we found that 70% of in-store Black Friday deals were also available online for the same price – or less!

MYTH: In-store Black Friday Shopping Is a Dangerous Contact Sport

While there are always reports of overly-aggressive shoppers on Black Friday, a majority of consumers actually express feeling a sense of camaraderie while waiting in line. Plus, no store wants instances of violence to splash their name across the news, so they will do everything in their power to keep things in check. You might have to deal with large crowds and a mess of inventory, but the chances of encountering an actual brawl are extremely low.

MYTH: Everything on Sale on Black Friday Is at Its Lowest Price of the Year

The Facts Behind 14 Black Friday Myths
Although many Black Friday deals offer the lowest prices of the year, you should probably wait to buy toys, brand name HDTVs, and winter apparel. Toys see the deepest discounts right before Christmas; brand name HDTVs sink in price between December and February; and winter apparel sales are best after Christmas. Be sure to consult our upcoming November Buying Guide for more information on what you might want to skip next month.

What’s more, retailers often sprinkle in mediocre discounts with their doorbuster deals, in the hopes that shoppers trying to bang out all of their holiday shopping will bite on high-profit items.

MYTH: Nobody Will Beat Black Friday Prices

We already know that this isn’t true: last week Best Buy announced that it would match Amazon’s Black Friday promotional prices. And in a few weeks, we’ll publish an extensive list of stores that will offer price matching on Black Friday. Last year Amazon, Best Buy, Home Depot, and Meijer met competitors’ prices, and in some cases offered better deals.

MYTH: All of the Good Deals Are Printed in Black Friday Ads

On Thanksgiving Day, retailers like Walmart and Best Buy have historically advertised additional Black Friday deals that weren’t in their circulars. These “secret” deals are only found online, so the trick is to uncover them on the web before you consider a trip the to the store on Friday. Moreover, some retailers will respond to competitor pricing and make last-minute cuts in order to compete. So even if you’ve already perused a store’s early leak, you should always check back for Black Friday listing updates.

MYTH: Leaked Black Friday Ads Are Totally Accurate

As we mentioned above, early leaked ads often don’t tell the whole story. Stores will alter their sales as they learn what competitors plan on doing. Moreover, the fine print isn’t always present, which is crucial information if your heart is set on a doorbuster deal that will actually be available in extremely limited quantities.

MYTH: You Have Go to an Apple Store for Its Black Friday Sale

In reality, all of Apple’s Black Friday sale prices will be available online with free shipping sitewide. However, in our Black Friday Apple predictions piece, we actually advised against shopping the Apple sale at all. Not surprisingly, Apple is skimpy with the discounts, and most resellers – like Amazon, Mac Connection, and MacMall – will offer price cuts that will be twice as good for products such as the iPad and MacBook line of laptops.

MYTH: Sales on Designer and Luxury Goods Abound on Black Friday

While high-end retailers Saks Fifth Avenue and Neiman Marcus broke the age-old trend of skipping Black Friday promotions last year, we don’t expect luxury stores to offer such sales again this year. (However, we may see special promotions from their outlet branches.) SmartMoney suggests that these stores may once again view the Black Friday frenzy to be in opposition to the very brand ideals they’re trying to cultivate. Although there are certainly exceptions to the rule, Black Friday is mainly a blockbuster event for lower-end goods.

MYTH: If You Go Overboard on Black Friday, You Can Return Your Purchases

The Facts Behind 14 Black Friday Myths
Not so fast! Stores tighten their return policies considerably during the holidays, making it harder to return items. Some retailers will only give you store credit even if you have a receipt. A handful of stores are now also keeping track of serial returners and banning them. And if you don’t remember to ask for a gift receipt, your recipients might be doubly unhappy: they’ll likely receive a store credit for only a portion of the return. Bah humbug!

MYTH: Cyber Monday Sales Offer Better Online Deals than Black Friday

For those of you who’d rather fully digest your Thanksgiving meal and not stand in line at midnight on the dawn of Black Friday, we understand. If you want to shop exclusively online though, don’t think for a second that you should wait until Cyber Monday. The sales that pop up on Monday will indeed be good, but a majority of Black Friday deals are available online starting Thursday morning. So why wait until Cyber Monday to bag bargains?

MYTH: Completing a Black Friday Order Online Forms a Binding Contract

Unfortunately, submitting an order online for an item—even after entering payment information—doesn’t guarantee that it’s yours. Retailer sites occasionally display inaccurate inventory and will sometimes let consumers buy an item the store doesn’t have in stock anymore; this can be a particular problem on Black Friday, given the speed of transactions on this day.

Moreover, if a site accidentally publishes the incorrect price for an item, and shoppers take advantage of the amazingly low price, a store may decide to cancel all orders. Best Buy did just this last Black Friday when it mistakenly offered a $100 iTunes gift card for $60; it canceled the orders and then asked customers to instead purchase the deal for the intended price of $80.

MYTH: Good Customer Service Isn’t as Important as Inventory

If anything, a rush of Black Friday shoppers vying for limited quantities of deals is even more reason for retailers to be organized, cordial, and customer-friendly…especially when they run out of stock! Disgruntled shoppers always complain. But nowadays they’re even more prone to texting, tweeting, and sharing their negative experiences with anyone who will listen. Poor customer service has the potential to affect public perception and drive customers away from certain retailers.

Top 25 Legendary Halloween Horror Movie Icons


Released 1983

Back before the Beethoven franchise showed us how lovable and helpful St. Bernards can be, Cujo had us running in terror from these gargantuan canines. All it takes is a little bat bite and this friendly household pet morphs into a raging, bloodthirsty monster. Cujo accomplishes a lot with one simple, terrifying premise – a mother and her toddler son are trapped in a broken down car as a rabid dog stalks them. At least the movie had a happier ending than the book.


Frankenstein’s Monster

Released 1910

Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein was an early classic of the horror genre and the book that many consider to be the dawn of science fiction. It’s little wonder that Dr. Victor Frankenstein and his signature creation have appeared in so many film adaptations. While the first Frankenstein movie appeared way back in 1910, it’s Universal’s 1931 adaptation that remains the most iconic. Boris Karloff defined the look of this lumbering, fearsome monster, as well capturing all the tragedy that makes him such an enduring character in pop culture. Frankenstein’s Monster has appeared in dozens of movies over the decades and inspired countless more.

Within the world of Ghostbusters, the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man is a cheerful, rotund corporate mascot akin to the Pillsbury Doughboy or the Michelin Man. He even has his own animated series. But a pop culture icon became Manhattan’s worst nightmare when the Ghostbusters battled the dark god Gozer atop 55 Central Park West. Gozer instructed the Ghostbusters to “choose the form of the destroyer.” Ray was the only one of the four who failed to keep his mind blank, and thus Stay Puft emerged as a colossal beast bent on wiping out all life in Manhattan.

Luckily, the gang crossed the streams and averted disaster. Stay Puft has remained one of the most recognizable symbols of the franchise alongside Slimer and the anti-ghost logo. He even returned sporadically in the animated series The Real Ghostbusters as a helpful ally.


Norman Bates

Released 1960

Norman Bates is the proprietor of the Bates Motel, a seemingly innocent little inn that holds great danger for any who stop for the night. Bates’ severe psychological problems make him prone to spying on guests, stabbing them in the shower, and dressing up like his dead mother. Bates was brought to justice at the end of the original Psycho (one of Alfred Hitchcock’s best), but he returned in several sequels, a remake, and pilot for a proposed TV continuation called Bates Motel. None of these spinoffs have come close to topping the original, but Bates remains a charismatic and disturbing villain throughout.


Damien Thorn

Released 1976

If the Omen series proved anything, it’s that children can be just as creepy as adult villains like Norman Bates. Damien is the central antagonist of the Omen series. He happens to be the Anti-Christ, a fact which most of the adults in his life discover far too late. Even as a young boy, Damien was sending his enemies plummeting to their deaths and generally getting in good practice for the day he would seize control of the world. His reign of terror and legacy were explored in three sequels and a recent remake.


The Creeper

Released 2001

The Creeper more than lives up to his name in the Jeepers Creepers series. This villain might look like a man at first glance, but he’s actually an ancient demon who appears for 23 days every 23rd spring to feast on human flesh and assemble himself a new body from the various body parts. He also drives a massive truck that has become as much a hallmark of the franchise as anything else. The Creeper returned in a 2003 sequel, and the word is that MGM has given writer/director Victor Salva the go-ahead to film a back-to-back pair of sequels. The Creeper should be feasting on human flesh for a long time to come.



Released 1996

With the ’70s and ’80s playing host to so many great horror movie villains, it seemed liked Hollywood had nothing left to add by the time the ’90s rolled around. Cue Ghostface, the villain of the horror satire Scream series. Ghostface is characterized by his signature Halloween mask and proclivity for taunting his victims and drawing out the act of murder. The twist is that Ghostface isn’t any one single villain. Instead, each film centers around the mystery of who has donned the costume and renewed the process of killing young, dumb, pretty people. That formula has given us four Scream movies so far.



Released 1992

The Candyman is a villain who will appeal to anyone who ever stood in a dark bathroom and whispered “Bloody Mary” into a mirror. Like that infamous ghost, Candyman is a vengeful killer who appears before anyone dumb enough to summon him. He’s distinguished by his tattered cloak and the hook that rests where his hand used to be. However, Candyman is more than your average slasher villain. He has a tragic backstory, and the original movie is often praised for offering a more intelligent and thoughtful alternative to the Nightmare on Elm Streets and Friday the 13ths of the horror world.


Samara Moran

Released 2002

Samara Morgan (and her Japanese counterpart Sadako Yamamura) is the demonic poster child for the Ring series. This twitchy, creepy villainess appears to her victims seven days after they watch a cursed videotape. We can’t imagine many things worse than seeing Samara crawl out of a TV screen and right into your living room. And despite the attempts of the protagonists in the Ring movies to put an end to the curse and quiet Samara/Sadako’s restless spirits, these demonic girls just keep on killing.


Count Dracula

Released 1922

Is there any horror villain with a longer Hollywood history than Count Dracula? The first confirmed adaptation of Bram Stoker’s novel was the 1922 silent classic Nosferatu, though due to copyright concerns the character’s name was changed to Count Orlok. Dracula’s most enduring film appearance came nine years later when Bela Lugosi starred in Universal’s Dracula. That movie defined the look and mannerisms of the character for decades to follow. Dracula has appeared in hundreds of movies, played by everyone from Christopher Lee to Frank Langella to Gary Oldman. And though moviegoers are currently obsessed with vampires who sparkle and smolder, there will always be a place for the most famous bloodsucker of them all.


The Poltergeist

Released 1982

“They’re here!”

The villains of Poltergeist aren’t physical monsters or serial killers, but rather disembodied spirits that terrorize a hapless family. These spirits are led by a dominating force called The Beast that attempts to lure young Carol Ann Freeling through the family’s TV set and into the realm of the dead. Ultimately, viewers learned that the restless spirits were angry that the Freeling family home was built atop a burial ground. Later sequels served to complicate that arrangement and the nature of The Beast itself. But regardless, the original continues to scare viewers who fear what they can’t see. The fact that the movie has built up a reputation over the years for being cursed itself doesn’t hurt either.


The Thing

Released 1982

John W. Campbell’s novel Who Goes There inspired the 1951 sci-fi movie The Thing From Another World, where a group of Antarctic researchers battled a plant-based alien life-form. However, most horror fans know “The Thing” as the titular monster in John Carpenter’s 1982 classic. More faithful in tone and execution to Campbell’s novel, The Thing easily ranks among Carpenter’s scariest movies. The scene of the Thing consuming a room full of dogs and its inhuman scream upon being torched with fire still give us nightmares even today. The fact that the monster rarely appeared in the flesh, but rather disguised itself as various human characters, only added to the creep factor. Until the end, viewers could never be sure who was real and who had been consumed by the Thing (and some argue that even the final scene is ambiguous in that regard).



Released 1988

Dolls are creepy. It’s something about their big, glassy eyes and almost human features that rubs people the wrong way. The Child’s Play series played on that shared fear when it introduced the world to Chucky. Reportedly inspired by Hasbro’s My Buddy dolls, Chucky debuted as a talking doll with the peculiar ability to come to life and murder every adult that crossed his path. As it turned out, the doll was actually possessed by the soul of a serial killer/voodoo enthusiast. That particular spell proved to have significant staying power, and Chucky has returned to menace the children of the world in various sequels over the years. He even got married and had a baby.


Regan MacNeil

Released 1973

Ask anyone for their list of the scariest movies of all time and you’re bound to find The Exorcist high up in the rankings. In this 1973 classic, an innocent girl named Regan begins displaying bizarre behavior that her mother and doctors initially blame on puberty. Puberty sucks, but it doesn’t explain floating furniture or the ability to spin one’s neck 360 degrees. Regan’s mother eventually realizes that her daughter has been possessed by a demon named Pazuzu. The demon is eventually driven out, but it has a habit of returning again and again to torment Regan and others in the various sequels and prequels. None of those followups have the raw, terrifying appeal of the original and its many iconic scenes of demonic possession (the head-spinning, the soup-barfing, the spider-walking, etc.).


Jack Torrance

Released 1980

Jack Torrance suffered from the world’s worst case of cabin fever in this adaptation of the popular Stephen King novel. Torrance, along with hi wife Wendy and son Danny, is hired to serve as winter caretaker to the famed Overlook Hotel. Unfortunately, the hotel has a sordid past and is practically crawling with ghosts. These spirits feed off of Torrance’s fragile psychology and his son’s psychic talents, growing stronger and more dangerous over the course of the winter. Before long, Torrance snapped and set about trying to murder his family with an ax. He managed to kill the cook, but ultimately Torrance’s fate was to freeze to death while lost in a hedge maze.

The Shining is host to numerous scary scenes (the bloody elevator, the women in Room 237), but Torrance’s appeal centers on the idea that even a good man can become a depraved killer once he’s pushed far enough.



Released 1975

Humanity has a primal fear of the ocean and the dangers it hides. No animal better encapsulates that fear than the Great White Shark. And no movie captures the terror of a shark attack quite like Jaws. Based on Peter Benchley’s novel (which in turn was loosely inspired by the 1916 New Jersey shark attacks), Jaws follows the reign of terror of one oversized shark as it torments the inhabitants and tourists of a New England community. The movie works so well because it leaves so much to the viewer’s imagination. Until the climax, viewers rarely catch more than a glimpse of the shark, instead seeing shots from its point-of-view and hearing the iconic musical cue that announces its arrival.

Though the shark (affectionately dubbed Bruce by the film crew) exploded at the end of the first movie, more Great Whites returned to terrorize Amity in various sequels. But other than the decent Jaws 2, those sequels are better left forgotten. We can only assume that the reason so few directors have attempted to make a serious horror movie about sharks is that there’s no topping Jaws.



Released 1968

Zombies may have supplanted vampires as the most common horror movie villains these days. The contemporary idea of what constitutes a zombie was introduced in George Romero’s seminal 1968 horror film Night of the Living Dead. But while Romero may be the father of the modern zombie, countless other directors have tired their hand at depicting the undead apocalypse. A few common traits appear almost every time. Zombies are the reanimated bodies of the dead. They crave human flesh (with a preference for brains), and can only be killed by destroying the head. Zombies are generally dangerous because of their large numbers, although some films like 28 Days Later have introduced zombies that can run and kill with frightening ease.



Released 1990

Some people have a deep-rooted fear of clowns. And after watching It, it’s really not difficult to understand why. Another adaptation of a Stephen King book, It follows the trials and tribulations of a group of friends in a small Maine town who encounter a demonic, sewer-dwelling clown named Pennywise as both children and adults. Pennywise is anything but a jolly, fun-loving entertainer. Not unlike Gozer in Ghostbusters, Pennywise’s perceived form is determined by the minds of the victims he torments. And like any good horror movie villain, he slumbers for decades before reawakening to renew his reign of terror. The fact that Tim Curry was cast as the villain only helps the fear factor. Curry’s distinct voice makes him scary in just about any movie.



Released 1987

Pinhead is easily one of the most visually distinctive horror villains of all time. He leads a group of bondage enthusiasts/demons known as the Cenobites in the various Hellraiser movies. Hapless humans who solve a puzzle box known as the Lament Configuration are rewarded with a one-way ticket to Pinhead’s realm and an eternity of pain and torture. But as fearsome as he is, part of Pinhead’s appeal lies in his regal charm. There’s an element of Dracula-esque nobility and tragedy to this dark figure, which set him apart from ’80s contemporaries Jason Voorhees and Freddy Krueger.


Hannibal Lecter

Released 1986

If you want to talk charismatic villains, the conversation has to include Hannibal Lecter. Intelligent and charming in equal measure, Hannibal is also a serial killer fond of cooking and eating his victims. Though ostensibly the villain of the movies Silence of the Lambs and Red Dragon, viewers can’t help but root for Hannibal. After all, he usually only punishes those deserving of his wrath.

Hannibal made his cinematic debut in the 1986 film Manhunter (played by Brian Cox). However, it was Oscar winner Anthony Hopkins who elevated Hannibal to a movie icon in Silence of the Lambs and its spinoffs. 2013 will see the debut of a Hannibal TV series. Time will tell if Mads Mikkelsen can embody the role as well as Hopkins did.



Released 1974

One of the first of the iconic band of slasher movie villains, Leatherface is a serial killer inspired by real-life figure Ed Gein. Leatherface is known for wearing masks made of human skin and wielding a chainsaw. His victims in the Texas Chainsaw Massacre series are those hapless teenagers and police officers who wander too close to his dilapidated home. Part of Leatherface’s terrifying appeal is that one never truly knows what evil is lurking behind closed doors. We just know we never want our van to break down in the Texas wilderness.


Alien Queen

Released 1986

The original Alien introduced the Xenomorph, a bloodthirsty alien carnivore that grew from human host bodies and managed to nearly wipe out an entire spaceship crew before being sucked out into space. Aliens upped the ante considerably by introducing an entire colony of Xenomorphs. Worse still, these aliens were merely drones serving the gargantuan Alien Queen, a much larger and more fearsome version of her children. Heroine Ellen Ripley narrowly escaped her first encounter with a Queen in that movie, but she wasn’t so lucky the second time around. The Alien Queen has been a recurring threat in many of the Alien and Alien vs. Predator films since.


Michael Myers

Released 1978

Michael Myers is one of the most popular and enduring slasher movie villains. Unlike a character like Freddy Krueger, Myers has no real personality or emotion. He’s simply a cold, silent, remorseless killer – a true embodiment of the boogeyman. The various Halloween films establish that Myers was incarcerated in a mental institution as a child after killing his sister. Many of the films see Myers escape from imprisonment or apparent death and return to torment Laurie Strode (who Rob Zombie’s remake made Myers’ sister). He can’t be killed. He can’t be stopped. There’s no escaping the wrath of Michael Myers.


Jason Voorhees

Released 1980

Jason Voorhees is the central antagonist of the long-running Friday the 13th series. He’s instantly recognizable as the lumbering killer who hides his deformed face behind a hockey mask and wields a deadly machete. Interestingly, it wasn’t until the third Friday the 13th movie that his look was solidified. Voorhees wasn’t even the central villain of the original film. Instead, his mother was the one who set about murdering a group of camp counselors in revenge for her son’s drowning years before. But Jason emerged from the grave to carry on his mother’s legacy. No one is more skilled at murdering pretty, boneheaded teenagers in various brutal ways. And like Michael Meyers, Jason seemingly can’t be killed. His thirst for blood has even taken him to the cold reaches of space and back.


Freddy Krueger

Released 1984

When we opened the horror villain polls, the only real question was whether Jason Voorhees or Freddy Krueger would claim the top spot. And clearly, most of you felt Freddy was the top dog. It’s hard to argue with his track record. Freddy debuted in 1984’s A Nightmare on Elm Street and has enjoyed a long and robust career of tormenting innocent people in their dreams. That supernatural quality is partly what sets Freddy above the pack. It doesn’t hurt that he has such a striking visual design – the burned face, the razor-sharp shears, the tattered sweater and fedora.

Freddy was played by Robert Englund for eight consecutive movies between 1984 and 2003, culminating in his long-awaited clash with Jason Voorhees in Freddy vs. Jason, as well as in the TV series Freddy’s Nightmares. Jackie Earle Haley took over the role in the 2010 reboot. One thing these movies have made abundantly clear is that Freddy Krueger is a man to be feared in both the waking world and dream world.
