This might be more of a thread for later in the day as those shopping filter back in. Me, I stay in on Black Friday because I can't stand lines that usually stretch further than your local amusement parks.

Working at Target in preparation for Black Friday, I got to see many deals being put out, but since I work overnight I wasn't able to partake in the savings. There are of course things I wanted, and hopefully when I work tonight I can pick up items that people haven't bought all up.

So when you are done, be a dear and post some of the best deals you got from the BF rush. I wanted to buy the Simpsons season six which we were selling for 20 bucks. I would have liked to see if the various MST3K collections were on sale, especially the recently released volume eight, but we don't sell them at Target. My sister and bro-in-law are picking up a HD TV as we speak, so that will be great for me.

What did you pick up today on sale?

Well, it's a normal day here, but I certainly enjoyed that clip on CNN which had two guys in an Orlando Wal-Mart swinging fists over a laptop.

Not a store or a deal I've taken advantage of myself (yet), but ROHwrestling.com is having a Black Friday sale - 25% off anything and everything, with no minimum purchase required - until 9pm tonight. If you haven't done so already, this would be a perfect opportunity to pick up the Joe vs. Kobashi DVD, which is simply awesome, for about fifteen bucks.

Don't want this to come across as a shill or anything, but that's something I personally don't think I'll be able to pass up, and thought I'd share.




Live long and
be fabulous.

Thanks for the tip. I went and picked up Joe v. Kobashi and Punk's final match. Everyone should take advantage of this :)

65% off a 'dress' winter jacket for my dad, which is the only bargain that made getting up 4 hours before I had to be in work this morning worth it. :)

The Daughter and I routinely get up early and poke around on Black Friday morning. Not buying - looking. Longest line was at Target, with Bass Pro a close second. We actually went into Bass Pro - but you couldn't see anyone! (they were all wearing Camo - I love that joke). It was busy - lots and lots of fishing equipment and camo going out the door. Best buy was busy and we saw a line at Old Navy, which opened later. By 7:30, we were back at the house having hot chocolate. We made our pilgrimage to Pennys for their free Christmas snow globe. (I think that's the 8th or ninth one we have)





We'll be back right after order has been restored here in the Omni Center.

I didn't know that they do that until this morning when I got a Mickey Mouse snow globe. Someone labeled some jewelry with the wrong sign and I got my wife a $200.00 pair or earrings for only $60.00. Target was pretty busy also, but worth the trip for some of their stuff. A bit tough to park their, though.

Went to Best Buy, looking for The Sims 2 for the girl my mom has "adopted" this holiday season at work. No go.

I was also looking for Sirius radio, but I was convinced I can find the Sportster Replay for less than 150 bucks. After digging online for a long time, I'm, convinced that I can't. I thought I had Circuit City coupons, but I'd have to spend more than 200 bucks for them to kick in, unfortunately. There's a 50 dollar mail in rebate, though.

I usually go to Best Buy on Black Friday, but this year I went to Wal-Mart with a friend and his new wife to help them pick up some things for their new apartment.

However, I was also able to partake in some of Best Buy's BF deals. Sorta. I just happened to be reading this thread (bf2005.com) last night/this morning around 2:00a EST. Apparently Best Buy was offering some of their BF deals on the website as early as Thanksgiving night. I bought the $380 laptop and $250 digital camcorder.

Despite the fact that I got confirmation numbers and emails for both purchases, this afternoon I got an email from BB saying that my laptop order was canceled due to lack of availability. Apparently a lot of other people at bf2005.com that took advantage of this loophole received similar emails. No cancellation email for the camcorder though! I have a UPS tracking number and they claim it has been shipped, but I won't be comfortable until the camera is in my hands.

Did Circuit City, Target, and the mall, starting at 5am this morning.

Circuit City had the worst line (And no, "But I'm W of the Day!" doesn't get you VIP treatment. Damn.), and that was just to get in. Missed getting Season 2 of Arrested Development for $12.99, but I got the Panasonic digital camera with free 256 MB SD card.

Target wasn't so bad. I was surprised the Ultimate Lightsabers weren't sold out by the time I got there. Got one each for my nephews.

Even the mall had pretty light foot traffic. I was surprised.

A couple of 19in flat panels for $199 each (after rebate) and a mispriced copy of The Movies Premiere Edition (same $49.99 as the basic edition) from CompUSA. That, and since I was next door, I took back a copy of Dead Like Me: Season 2 that I had picked up for my sister-in-law and her husband which I was somewhat distraught to learn already had bought it when we were at their place for Thanksgiving. At least I found out about it early...

Picked up 24 seasons 1 and 3 for $20 each at Best Buy and then went home and slept some more. The lines weren't bad, but that was probably because I wasn't there when the store opened and there was about twenty registers open.

I've been doing this for years. This year, I was able to get several things online first, however. Got 3 portable DVD players online at Circuit City for the kids on Thanksgiving, and was able to get a flat screen 19" monitor from Staples online at 4 in the morning for $169. Then I headed off to Target, was about 15th in line (noticed the line at Best Buy was around the block, what a mess). Was able to get the Kodak digital camera and 2 video chairs that I wanted, amongst other stuff. Then headed to Circuit City, got a Game Cube bundle and avoided the lines by picking up the stuff I ordered online the day before and paying for it at customer service. I was home by 7:30 am, with my Christmas shopping 90% done.

Well, since most of Target's stuff was on sale for two days, I was able to pick up Simpsons season 6 and the World Series of Poker game both for under 20 bucks each. I suppose I'll get stuff for other people some other time. Maybe.
