Re: Winners and Losers

Maybe they decided that they didn't want to force their employees to cut Thanksgiving time with family short just because the stores decided to start their sales earlier this year? I actually give them credit for not forcing employees in during that time. The losers in my area: The restaurants becau...

Re: Kmart sucks!

Last year had issues with Kmart on some larger ticket items so gave up on them. They are just disorganized in general. Today, the 50% off Beyblades weren't in the computer , cashier said "If you can prove to me they were listed in the same, I'll adjust it for you". Showed her the ad and sh...

Re: Anybody else feel...

Honestly, I'm starting to wonder if stores are reducing the good deals on doorbusters because of what they saw from about 2007-2010. When there were huge deals, more often people were buying the items to resell them. They weren't shopping for additional items. They viewed Black Friday as a way to ma...

Any Deals on Nook?

Has anyone seen any decent deals on the Nook? Looking for the black and white one with just wi-fi. Couldn't camp out on Black Friday for them because of having to help with a sick little one.

All I have to say is your got what you had coming to you DJKezo from Best Buy, I applaud them for kicking a scam artist like you out of line and refusing to let you use your "backup plan" when you got caught scalping. You should learn from this, but we all know scam artists like you are al...

That's what irks me about it all...they *KNOW* 500 people are going to be looking for something and the stores only gets 5 Why would you not plan to get 500 of something?? I know you don't want to be left holding 495 of them - but 5 is too few. 20-30 of something on BF is more reasonable I think Th...

I support Walmart's attempt to find everyone involved in the trampling and charge them with being part of the employee's death. It's not just Walmart's fault. Sounds like there were dozens or hundreds of customers that could care less for a fellow human than they could to save a few bucks. All of th...

Wrong, the sales they are talking about are dollar value. Sorry guys, as some of us pointed out, many people's logic about lower sales numbers would happen due to fewer huge discounts made no business sense. Selling items at huge price reductions does not increase the money brought in by stores. Wit...

Exactly, it's not a store's responsibility for how people were razed. For those willing to risk other's safety by ignoring the police that were there, they are the ones to blame for the violence. Not the store, not the police, not your third grade teacher that once caught you picking your nose in th...

That doesn't stop the violence, a woman at the Walmart I was at was trying to start fights with multiple people including myself. We all laughed at her, realizing how pathetic she was to try to get violent over saving $70. Very sad. This is why all Walmarts should be open before 5am and have people ...

Back From My First Round of BF Shopping For The Day

Went to Walmart and Circuit City. Arrived at Walmart at about 3:30 this morning. Was a Super Walmart so they had been open all night. Employees weren't helpful about determining what palates were where, but after walking around and thanks to maps posted here and at SD it was easy. Was able to line u...

as long as you don't mind mumbling "Liability SilLIablity" as you seem to think as you are hauled off to jail lol, sorry but if you try to get around the law you will get caught. The cops are everywhere on Black Friday. They know people will try to do things to make a quick buck I think it...

Kohl's isn't worth it usually

too many people get suckered in by the "half price toys" for their kids. What they fair to realize is Kohl's full price is about 50% higher than most other stores. So this means in the end, you only save 25% off what you would normally save at other stores. Other stores 30% off deals actua...
