There was a time when people looked forward to Black Friday. There was a rush that came with waking up from your turkey coma before the sun came up and standing in line for the doors to open so you could be the first to snatch up this years tickle-me-Elmo and $5 DVDs.

These purchases will be made from a multitude of technology platforms; from your smartphone to your laptop, shopping is at your fingertips at any given time.
