Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to Vox.com, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.
We just realized that we haven’t picked out a bird yet, so it’s time to pack up and head out for the four-day weekend. If you’re planning to camp out for the Black Friday deals, bundle up, it’s nippy out there. Brrr. Have a great Thanksgiving everyone—we'll be back bright and early Monday morning.
