They were talking on the news tonight that NY is considering strong regulations on how stores must setup for door busters, or even an outright ban on them as a result of this incident. Doesn't look like BF will ever be the same again in NY after this incident.

I'm going to play devil's advocate here, but what the man did was equivalent to stepping in front of a loaded, speeding freight train with a stop sign, and wondering why he got smushed. Yes, they need better crowd control procedures, but if I saw that shit, I would have just got the hell out of the...

Corporate put blocks in the system for the 24 hr. stores in my company, which prevented the sale of the BF items before the official start. Employees off the clock were stuffing their carts with items and hiding them at the counter at the clothing area to save for family and friends. They didn't bu...

Its pretty sad that someone had to loose their life for this. No bargain is worth getting someone killed. My condolences to his family and I'm also thankful that the pregnant woman's baby is fine.

Can't do anything. The ads on this site are mostly "leaked," so nothing you see here is technically official and subject to change. The only ones that are official are what you see posted on their site or printed in the flyer that comes in the paper. Some companies deliberately "leak&...

some things are made special and other things aren't. My company has products that are designed just for BF and disappear once BF is over and they are all sold.

Re: needs opinions for returns and purchase strategies

q1) Is it possible to buy an item that's on the black friday list a few days beforehand and use the stores return or exchange policies to get the discounted price or credit back on the official day of black friday when you come in on that day at the returns section? I just want to see if that's pos...

Nice find. If your looking to save cash though, it still may be cheaper to buy some one sale (especially if you use a lot of them) when you consider the price of ink (toner especially, if you use a color laser like I do) for your printer.

Disappointing, yes, but businesses are also not charities, they are all for-profit companies we are talking about here. Just like all of us want to capitalize on deals, they want to capitalize on their merchandise. I will add a perspective to it. The retailer I work for is a fortune 500 and the most...
