Default "black Friday" sale?

has anyone ever done a successful "black friday" type event? Like free shipping on the first 5 orders placed that day/weekend or something like that? I'm due with a new baby in the next couple of weeks and I'm trying to come up with ideas that don't involve me having to go anywhere for the month of November.

This will be my first "Black Friday" with the company and I plan on running specials. I found the idea on one of the Consultant Only FB pages and the customer will have to contact me to get the specials and it will be based on the times of the day, and will incorporate the Dec. customer special. So, for example: It might be for those that contact me by phone, text, or email between 6 AM - 8 AM, and spend the $31, will get a free mini utility bin. Those that contact me between 8:01 AM - 10 AM and spend $31, will get a free timeless wallet. And so on.

I think it is a good idea. Make sure they have plenty of notice and maybe even take "preorders" for the sale. Like many, I will be out of town with family and will be doing my own actual shopping so you want to be able to reach those customers as well.

Thanks, ladies! I'll figure something out and let you know how it goes. Not sure what I'll do yet. I really want the plum dot party set so I was hoping to be able to scrape together a catalog party and raffle off the hostess benefits to participants.

For most people they get some bites. It can't hurt to give it a try. Also Saturday is small business Saturday when people are supposed to buy from local businesses. That is the day I choose to offer incentives, etc. instead of Black Friday. I've also heard of some doing some on the Cyber Monday so there are all kinds of possibilities!
