Re: Why this was the best Black Friday EVER for me.

Sounds to me like that was done by some people that didn't have a clue what they were doing. All they were probably thinking was "50 inch TV...so let's substitute that". Not so much a Vizio for Emerson....but 4K for 1080p.

Re: Too early for holiday music!

People thinking it is too early will find Christmas coming very quickly. Thanksgiving very late this year. Do people realize Christmas is only 4 weeks away now?

Re: Face it, Black Friday is Dead!

Checked my local Best Buy tonight around midnight. Two tents...maybe 4 people there. Something tells me it is going to be a bad year for the brick and mortar stores which are left. Online shopping is where it is at. Sure there will be the hoards at Walmart, but the real savvy buyer knows there are b...

Re: Kohls online Black Friday sale online live *NOW*

Free shipping to home is nice, but some people do want to avoid shipments to home if nobody is there during the day. Hear of more and more occasions where people are following UPS trucks around and stealing packages that are left out. Sad. Very sad.

Well Walmart, Sears, Penneys all have ship-to-store. Would expect them to match what competitors do.

Re: Kohls online Black Friday sale online live *NOW*

I wonder if they would even offer that anymore? With free shipping on orders over $50, they might be trying to encourage people to buy at least $50 of merchandise.

Re: Kohls online Black Friday sale online live *NOW*

I put my Kohl's orders in yesterday, and got tracking numbers by last night. Should have the merchandise by tomorrow at the latest. So I will have the goods before the sale even starts at the store! Can't beat that. As I said before, Kohl's appears to be doing it right. Get a jump on the competition...

Re: Kohls online Black Friday sale online live *NOW*

Give Kohls credit. Starts their sale early (remember when it started like 1:00am Thanksgiving morning). Free shipping (over $50), extra 15% off, plus $15 Kohl's cash for every $50 spent. Order online have it shipped to your home, and avoid the 45 minute - hour wait in the Kohl's checkout line. A win...

Re: No line at Best Buy

If you are going to have crappy sales, you are not going to get the customers. Plus I think more and more people are doing online shopping. It is not as fun to do it online, but easier, less stressful, and you can hit multiple stores at once to try and get those deals.

Re: Anyone else having an empty feeling this BF season?

Talk about doorbuster items still left over...I made another stop at Walmart shortly after midnight on the 29th. They still had different doorbuster items available and a good selection of the discounted DVD's, CD's, and Blu-Rays. I stopped at an Ace hardware on the evening of the 29th. They had alm...

Re: walmart 1 hour guarantee

I got one of the 1 hour guarantee cards for the $98 TV...arriving at the store about 15 minutes before the 6:00pm sale start. No line and just got a card as the store was out of stock. I didn't mind...that way I didn't have to mess with hauling a TV around with the store so busy. So Friday I finishe...

Re: Walmart map

My local Walmart was pretty well organized. Didn't physically get one of the 32 inch TV's but got the voucher....which is fine with me. I don't want to haul that TV around when I got shopping to do! I also made my second Walmart trip about midnight. Store was dead. I think like three registers were ...

Re: Any Good Tv Deals coming online?

Amazon has had some TV's...but they are not announced in the "Lightning Deals" very far ahead of time. You basically have to be in the right place at the right time, and click on the button to put it in your cart immediately. As I suspected might be the case, Amazon did sell a 32 inch LCD ...

Re: Anyone else having an empty feeling this BF season?

Now it is 8:00pm on Thanksgiving. My 2013 Black Friday shopping is complete...yet Friday isn't even here yet. Between the stores opening at 6 or 8 on Thanksgiving, and most stores offering the sales online hours before the store opens...what is left to buy on Friday?!?!?

Re: Any Good Tv Deals coming online?

I have been watching too. Good online deals on 40" and up, but nada for 32". Walmart for me also.
