    My license expires ON black friday 11/29/13 - Any specials going on maybe the day before or what not so I can renew that one and 4 other forums? :D

    Any sales will be announced in advance, however, traditionally there have been no sales on Black Friday.

    What's black friday? I'm assuming it's some American thing...

    Well, xenForo isn't based in America, so it would be unlikely anyway.

    It's that time of year when the American consumer gets to stampede upon the retail worker when they attempt to open the doors for the impatient customers. :D Forgot who mentioned it, but they summed it up nicely, it's the equivalent to our Boxing day sales.

    I just received an email from the competition about a $25 off Black Friday special and I would like to move to XenForo. Any specials from XF this week?

    They'll be announced by a member of staff if there are any upcoming sales.

    It's an Alpha, not recommended for live boards. $250-$25= $225
    XenForo for its $140 is ready to use on live boards.

    Take your option.

    I got the same e-mail. Not that I'm even thinking about using it, it was *delete* straight away! xenForo is the way to go, and I will always say that.

    Isn't it basically a way for retailers to get rid of the junk thats not sold or is now last years style, and people lap it up because they think they are getting a bargain.

    As xenforo isn't junk or last year I hope there isn't a sale.

    I got this e-mail too. All I could do was LMAO :ROFLMAO:

    Their "sale price"
    $250 minus $25, equals $225 (250 - 25 - 225)

    XenForo's normal price $140

    $225 minus, $140, equals, $85 (225 - 140 = 85)

    You save $85 on Black Friday by switching to XenForo.
    You save $110 every other day of the week (250 - 140 = 110), by switching to XenForo.

    So much for their "sale" :ROFLMAO:

    Small mistype (slip of the keyboard) should read 85, not 84 :p

    It's a way for retailers to trick people to buy many products at the same prices they were offered at earlier this year. Prices take a steep incline before Black Friday, and then again after Black Friday but drop around February for most things.

    Ah that makes sense. In the UK the sales start after xmas and its all the stuff that's not sold before. I thought it was odd there being a big sales period in the run up to xmas.

    I guess then the equivalent in the UK to black Friday would be DFS having a sale. :p

    I dunno what it is with these Sofa companies. I can tell you, I do get tired at the amount of commercials advertising sofas, sofa beds etc on the TV. I always ensure the tv is switched off after xmas.

    Almost as bad as the go compare commercials, almost. :X3::D

    Speaking of insurance commercials, this is what I saw outside my lounge window at the weekend...



    For those of you wondering what the hell that is:
