I got up at 6:30 to get ready for work. Black Friday is not a thing here in Canada (yet... I see the stores are hopping on the trend and trying however).

Yes, isn't it odd? /nembers of SB work for (if we're lucky) 30-50 cents an hour, hour after hour, to get gift cards to spend on consumer goods (both necessities and non-necessities). No minimum wage, working conditions and firings solely at the discretion of the employer.....a pure libertarian economic environment. Not an environment in which anti-consumerism and anti-capitalism has a place.

30 cents an hour? Are you in the USA or something? I'm lucky to make 30 cents a DAY on here.

Yes, I'm in the U.S. Relatively speaking we get "better" activities than other countries. "Relatively" being the operative word.

Holy cow. I didn't think 30 cents a day was an actual number unless you were in a "stan". Yikes, are you in a stan?

Your intended sarcasm or not... you do realize the worker is not the capitalist? So your first statement can still ring true to many people here who are struggling for a few extra dollars to survive within a capitalistic society.

Most workers are indeed capitalists. They want the good life for themselves and their families. Many won't achieve that good life (and without enough money happiness is much harder to achieve - it may not buy happiness but it creates an environment where many of the causes of unhappiness don't exist) but I think most would rather have the possibility of achieving success rather than the certainty of equal misery for all.

And, by the way, most business owners are workers. In fact, throughout my 40 plus years of working life I've seen most times that my boss worked longer hours and harder than many of his "workers". That's especially true of small businesses - the work involved for the owner there can be 14-16 hours a day, six days a week.

The "state" (i.e., politicians and bureaucrats) provides whatever it thinks it must in order to keep the politicians and bureaucrats in their jobs. Bread and circuses to keep the masses occupied and unlikely to take up arms in revolt. Doublespeak to keep them confused. Political correctness to keep the various subgroups pacified. The state is quite brilliant at its job of keeping itself protected.

Where's the option for "I don't shop Black Friday"? We're into the celebration and observance. So, we don't really do much of any presents.

There should of been the choice "I don't shop on Black Friday" or at least "Not Applicable". I don't like crowded places, people not using the word "Excuse Me'..the shoving, pushing...just trying to get a deal.

I have never shopped on "Black Friday." Never have, never will. Not worth the risk to try to get into/through the store.
And online shopping? Nah. I'd rather bake for my friends and family; they appreciate that more, too.

Happy holidays, everyone! Be safe, be kind!

OTHER I do not follow American customs as I do not live in America and its about time Swagbucks realised that not everyone does live in the USA. To me Thanksgiving and Black Friday mean nothing at all, just as My Countries National Holidays and festivals mean nothing to the average American.

Swagbucks is an American company and I would think its membership is majority American. So it's reasonable that the site is geared more towards those in the majority when it comes to poll questions and other things.

Not really shopping, just going to my local record store when they open to procure a limited release from Faith No More for a friend and I. I worked as a retail store manager for 10 years, when I left 2 years ago I vowed to never step foot outside Devil Friday. Only for Faith No More will I drive straight to the store and back. The 7in is aptly named b/c that's what I called them when I found out I would have to leave the house, lol.

They should embrace their culture. I enjoyed the story about Thanksgiving in the UK and all the special retailers trying to make mericans feel at home. FFS when yout think about it, Thanksgiving was the start of telling England "off you fu&*!"
