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.

Those "Door Busters" are normally limited (ad says minimum 10 to store). Chances are if you aren't the first 10 people in line, then don't even bother. They'll give out the coupons/tickets for these door buster items in order of the line and chances are they'll have just the bare minimum stated. Unless you plan on saving 1,000-3,000 dollars on many door busters, it's probably not worth camping out a full day just to save 300-400 on one TV.

I agree they did not have to take it back but they also lost my business because of the poor customer service. Stupid ass mgr. kept telling me if I had purcahsed there extended warrantee they would have taken it back but I felt that was a stupid excuse to not provide any customer service. I feel with them you have to buy customer service because if you don't they don't give a rats ass about the customer. Lost my business and others over a stupid return.

I will have to agree F Best Buy, their customer service is the pits. I have not bought anything from them in a long long time.

Anybody find any Cyber Monday deals that were better than Black Friday deals? I didn't even do any shopping on CM, but I did mostly online shopping on BF. The ads I saw for CM deals weren't that great imo.

Re: Eff Black Friday

There are some great deals this year... 40 inch tv's going for $200? That's pretty insane. Still, you wouldn't catch me out there dealing with the nut-jobs.

besides that new electronics store HHGregg seems to have great deals for the next few weeks, not just on black friday.

anyone ever gone to a HHGreeg? im going to try it out here in the next week or so.
I did a LOT of research and price-checking last Christmas when my wife and I decided to get a new LG flat screen as a gift to each other. HH Gregg killed Best Buy and every other store on price for the same TV. I spoke to an employee there and he said no one can beat their prices because of the way they buy, they're able to offer TVs below retail prices.

I'll probably get my wife's gift there this year too and when we remodel the kitchen, I'll probably look there for appliances. I love HH Gregg.


The only time I've ever left the house on Black Friday is when I was able to grab a gas grill from Lowe's for $80 a few years ago. Still using it...couldn't resist that deal. Even then, I went right to the grills and was in and out in 5 minutes. It was about 10 a.m.

Matty's right, the internet is the way to shop on Black Friday. Even other times, I might go to a store to check the product out in person (especially electronics) but then I'll actually purchase online.

I'm sure other people have a non-traditional use for a Romo jersey.
