Re: College bound Christmas Ideas, Help!

I say hold off. 1. Many colleges only allow appliances up to a certain wattage. My microwave couldn't be more than 500W (it'd take 10 minutes to get a handful of pizza rolls even luke warm!). Mini-fridge the same way. Good thing to do is next spring, watch Craigslist or Buy/Sell groups on Facebook a...

Re: SNES

Technically, a 3 year old is indeed a separate person. Could have saved their birthday money. Buuuuut, the box clearly has the ESRB rating on it and says "T" for teens due to mild blood and violence. Store could of easily said no just for that reason and there would be nothing the lady co...

Re: SNES

It seems like Target got the lions share of them. Target in Lexington,KY got at least 100+. Best Buy got a good amount as well. But the 5 Gamestops/EB got maybe 30-40 between all of them. Meijers had maybe 6 or so. Have heard the 4 Walmarts averaged 30-40 per store.

Re: SNES

Congrats to everyone who found one! Got mine last night at Walmart. Was only a handful of us. Got mine, went back in for another for my brother, and the lady said I could buy as many as I want. Ended up with 5 in total. Texted people and told them to not worry about going out for one because I had t...

Re: SNES

So am I correct in saying that if I go to my Walmart Thursday night and line up, at midnight I should be able to buy a SNES. Is that correct? I didn't get any preorder or anything like that. Sorry I've never bought anything on its release date before that was this popular. lol Depends if your Walma...

Re: SNES

Not sure how true it is but somebody posted a pic to Reddit and CAG about how many SNES Classics their store at Best Buy were getting. It was 150. Another store was getting 88. And another 66. That's not counting preorders as well. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170923/606caa8602b7e93f60cc31dc8a...

Re: SNES

Saw an article that said that there would be more SNES Classics available on 9/29 as there was the entire run of the NES Classics. Guess Nintendo learned from their mistake last year. And indeed, the NES Classic will make a comeback in 2018. Heard there will be more games installed in the newer vers...

Just read this, found it interesting. NINTENDO Finding an SNES Classic Edition Is About to Get a Lot Easier Chris Morris 11:31 AM ET The pre-order process for Nintendo's SNES Classic Edition was, in a word, a nightmare. Stores blew through their stock in minutes, leading many to fear that getting t...

Re: NES Classic

Rumor is starting BF, they will be pretty easy to find. And the local Walmart sold out at midnight. Never heard how many they had. But as of noon yesterday, Gamestop had 12 and had sold one. I picked mine up and bought another 2 for my niece and nephew for Christmas. Might be worth checking further...

Standard rates applied. And I figured since he was a career criminal, defending him might lead to more work!

Re: Worst gift you ever got

Have had several "ohhhhhh thanks" gifts over the years: ugly shirts, cheap wallets, keychain. But every year, the in laws try to reup themselves. For instance 1. in 2003, the first Christmas my wife and I after we got married, they gave me a set of coasters...not good ones, those little p...

Re: What's the craziest thing

Not sure about crazy or what people define as "crazy" but: 1. The very first year I participated in BF (2002), the WM wasn't a supercenter but rather just a building. Closed thanksgiving and was opening at 5 am. Lines formed and I'm maybe 30ish from the front since I had nothing to do duri...

Re: Walmart

The way the wife explained, corporate decided no staggered times because WM was losing people after the big 6 pm sale. They wondered off or went home or whatever. Put everything at 6 pm, load up a cart, and wait an hour in line = customers not spending money at other stores.
