Re: The definitive newbie guide for doing Wal-Mart Black Fri

Maybe I was wrong. After reading some other comments, maybe its the newbies that should go to WalMart. I know that I'll stop at WalMart to pick up a few things if they're available, but there is no way in hell I'm going to doorbust WalMart. It seems like most other veterans have a similar attitude. ...

The one on the cover of Best Buy is 42" for $200..... If you're willing to wait in line for 48 hours.

Re: The definitive newbie guide for doing Wal-Mart Black Fri

So am I the only one who isn't OK with this? Tips and suggestions are great, but telling "newbies" they "don't belong at walmart" is downright rude. People have the right to try walmart if they want. We all had our first walmart BF at one point or another. Besides, Walmarts deal...

Re: I've been doing Black Friday for so long, that _________

^ a-yup! I've been doing black friday so long, that I can see that this years ad really DO stink, even though we say that every year. Ultimately, it all depends upon what you're looking for. There's deals to be had every year. But if the "best deal" is the dinner ware at Kohl's, nobody (e...

Re: Ad-scan downloads

I think most of them are available as PDFs now. Looks like Office Depot and HH Gregg we're still waiting. For the ones without PDFs, you can still save the ads by doing the following: ⋅ right click on the ad ⋅ select "view background image" ⋅ the ad page will ...

Re: I've been doing Black Friday for so long, that _________

I've been doing black friday so long, I remember when 7 and 8 am were common opening times for stores. I do remember a year, maybe late 90s?... I waited in line at Best Buy, bought my stuff, and then drove over to Toys R Us and waited in line for them to open. I'm thinking Best Buy was 6 and TRU wa...

The definitive newbie guide for doing Wal-Mart Black Friday

Other veterans, please ad to this thread. My post will by no means be all-inclusive. If you're a newbie and are planning to go to Wal Mart for black Friday (particularly this year with their "3 sales in 10 hours" approach), there are a few things you should know: ⋅  Don't - This ...

I've been doing Black Friday for so long, that _____________

Thought it'd be fun to have a little game with this thread. I've been doing Black Friday for so long, that I remember getting to Best Buy around 3:00am and being top-50 in line. Heck, I've been doing Black Friday for so long, that I remember when Best Buy didn't open until 6:00am. I've been doing Bl...

Re: Kohl's or Best Buy?

Kohls is typically very well stocked for Black Friday (at least in our area) and many of the household items are available into Saturday. Not sure if you'll find the same with the big ticket items.

How many years of Black Friday files do you have saved?

I've got adscans and spreadsheets going back to 2004. Can tell you everything I bought, what I paid, etc. It's interesting how some things show up in the same ads year after year. Also interesting is that flat screen TVs didn't really hit until 2005. I've probably got some older files as well for re...
