Why does Target advertise items that will be out of stock. Christmas lights are a nice buy at 75% off, but not when they're out of inventory.

The bricks and mortar BB will match their online price and any other actual store offer for the exact same item. On the other hand BB doesn't think it has dorect competition and jacks up the prices of many items to increase their profit margin.

Cyber Monday Deals are Up

Figured this would be the best place to post: http://www.amazon.com/b/?node=384082011 ... 0_13524100

Get'em while they last.

The Photoshop8 and Home & Student 07 prices are the lowest I've seen.

A ticker on the main page shows what percentage of each item have already been claimed.

Be careful of raised prices on some items. I camera I'm waiting to price drop went up $28 at BB. All is well since I'm coy to their profit taking practices.

I've found the opposite to be true. Nobody beats Newegg for price, quality and ease (and speed) of shipping.

IMO it's the king of ads this year. The all day specials are appealing. The Saturday ones not so much. Getting tickets for items is cool. Allowing people to only get one doorbuster is fair. If you don't want to go to WM then there will be more for the rest of us.

Down to 2.38 from a one day high of 2.55 two weeks ago. A market correction caused the change more than anticipated holiday travel. Gas stations near interstate exchanges will jack up their prices at the right (or wrong depending on how you see it) times of the year to milk the consumer of extra dol...

There will be plenty of items marked down 50% or more. If it's not half off I don't consider it to be a sale item. Stores will be as competitive as ever to move inventory and improve it's bottom line. Lastly, nobody is going to stop the typical BF shopper from going out and finding the steals.

Just received part of my order as a result of you making it so easy for me!


New Cabela catalogs went out last week. I think they're gaining ground on Bass Pro whose ads are smaller than usual.

One of my top items this year is a mid range digital camera that also records video. The Sony models haven't dropped enough and new models debut in the spring.

I'm going to stay a traditionalist and rely on this good ole message board for all my BF needs and observations. I do like the tweeting options for those into that sort of thing.

I think the consoles are in plentiful supply. It's some of the games that are hard to get. I can't find a Mario Kart w/wheel to save my life. It's going to be the same hit and miss as it was originally with the console.

I'm ready for some deeply discounted items this year. The past two BF's had deals on items that were put on clearance afterwards. The slumping economy will fuel the rush for big box outlets to wage price wars.
