Re: Eff Black Friday

I love black friday and have never missed a deal... staples and circuit city (well, in past years) and office depot let you order online at midnight and then show up whenever to pick stuff up.

BX (fort belvoir) had some good deals and i showed up at like noon there.

I haven't done the stand in the cold thing since bestbuy had the very first sub $500 laptop, but i was #4 in line (2am) and was offered tickets to every single "super" deal at 5am right before they opened. since then the housing market tanked and the deals just haven't been as good. my parents got another giganto tv and some cooking/tool stuff, but that's about it.

today's deals weren't any better than newegg's everyday price. real yawner.

Re: Eff Black Friday

Best Buy was on fire yesterday with great deals. Got a Canon PowerShot SX230HS for 200 bucks. Got couple of new games and blurays for dirt cheap too. I basically ordered everything online and picked them up at the Tysons store around 9:30 am....Surprisingly the place was practically empty because they opened at midnight and all the freaks were done by morning.

I agree, online ordering is the way to go.

Re: Eff Black Friday

So question about camping out:

What prevents people from just showing up at the door as soon as the store opens? Best Buy doesn't exactly have a "Line Forms Here" sign... I'm sure people might be waiting with their faces smashed against the door, but the people camping days in advance can't really stop people from getting in front of them can they?

Not sure because I've never done it before, but I think that they have Best Buy employees come out and ask you what you're waiting in line for and then they hand you a slip with a number on it to ensure you receive the goods you're waiting for.

Ahhh, OK. I've always wondered that every year because when we visit my in-laws in Orlando for Thanksgiving, people are camped there 3 days before Black Friday and I'm like, "What's keeping me from showing up when the store opens?"

Pssh 3 days? I just read an article about people waiting in line 9 days before Black Friday to get into Best Buy.

Re: Eff Black Friday

Yes it does bring out all the idiots at once. Around here many places were open on Thanksgiving afternoon. At about 3:00, both Walmarts Here, Sears, JC Penneys, and certain stores at the mall were open.

I guess it becomes black Thursday, or their attempt to eliminate black friday. There were just as many people lined up waiting for the stores at 3:00, as there probably were on friday morning. I think it blows beacuse now the people who work in retail don't get a day off for thanksgiving, since the stores are all open on Thursday.

Black Friday: Target Shoppers Step Over Walter Vance As He Collapses, Dies


I find it funny many want to crucify corporations for their actions, but then turn around and do stuff like this.? How about some of these idiots looking in the mirror.

Re: Eff Black Friday

My Brother and I had our eyes set on the $200 40 inch TV's from Best Buy but then at around 7:00 PM I saw on the local news that people had been lining up since 11 AM and at best they would only have 50 TV's. I'm still looking to get a 36+ inch in the $250 to $350 price range. You'd think the 720p TV's would be a little less expensive these days but a lot of them are in the $400 range.

If it never worked, why did you wait till over 30 days to return it? Sounds like a error on your part.
