The main reason BF sales aren't what they once were is because of the CONSUMER. People wait as long as they can hoping for the best deals so retailers caught on and decided why give huge discounts on BF and the last weekend before christmas ?

Yeah I'm in the market for a new one also as the one I have is the Sandisk 512MB one I got like 6 yr. ago on BF at Best Buy for $9.99 which then was a hell of a deal. I like simple though I don't need all the bells and whistles just something I can download and listen that's it.

Where are all the last minute deals ?

Retailers just shooting themselves in the foot this year. I went out this weekend with a whole wallet full of money ready to grab some bargins on clothes like in years past only to find shirts at $30-50 and Jeans still marked at $40 WTH ? Needless to say like the majority of folks I ran into what fe...

I agree it won't ever happen but I do believe we will continue with the trend of Black Friday weekend being broken up into 2 part with Friday and Saturday for brick and mortar stores and Sunday and Monday for Online sales where as in the past brick and mortar sales have usually ran Friday through Su...

Yeah some local areas may see a slight increase but I think the article I found is talking about on a national level.

Well The First Numbers From Black Friday Are In And......

To nobody's surprise sales were down compared to the same day last year and retailers are hoping for a big Cyber Monday to offset it. How do you think the 2009 Black Friday sales will look once the retail shopping stats are released? According to early reports, the Black Friday results show that whi...

that and there are a lot of folks who collect snow globes and the JC Penny ones you can only get on BF and they go fast. So unless you want to pay premium prices on some place like ebay you line up to get them.

I personally think I am done shopping at TRU. I've been plenty of previous years to know they are usually pretty organized. It was TERRIBLE. no organizing of the lines, so you just had people lining up wherever they wanted-with lots of people cutting in front of others. The manager honestly could o...

I was in and out of Target in 10 min. went for the $25 pre-lit tree and the most shocking sight of all was a half empty Walmart park...

No wait in th...

And it's likely to be the way it is for many years to come and expect some great deals all through decemeber as well as retailers get back preliminary BF sales numbers and realize how crappy they were.

that's because they couldn't move them at their regular overpriced prices and now that the maps are outdated and newer versions are in stock they decided it was probably best to just blow them out than have them take up space in the warehouse. There is always a underlying reason things are blown out...
