Re: Anyone else pull an all nighter?

I was up most of the night but I was shopping online & reading posts here not out shopping. LOL I guess I am crazy that way.

Re: Lowe's is going on!!

FYI from talking to friends of mine who work at Lowes is that employees are there in store starting at midnight pulling the online orders right from the shelves so that they are ready come store opening on BF. It's the closest thing to a free personal shopper you're ever going to get in a big box st...

Re: 2012 Black Friday news articles

From the PBS Evening Newshour

Apparently our brains are wired so that it's hard for us to resist the relentless 'buy it now' message that goes along with Black Friday deals.

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 m...

Re: NOT ON THANKSGIVING

I'm kind of questioning the wisdom of having the 'biggest' shopping/sales day of the year back to back with what is supposed to be a family holiday not for the reasons others have given but because so many family members seem to be having trouble buying for their relatives and friends when they're a...

Re: is BF changing?

Well since I got dragged out late on BF I noticed parking lots here were full all afternoon but once you got inside the stores people weren't buying that much extra in the way of gifts and BF deals (i.e. every place I went to, the stores still seemed to have most of their doorbusters in stock) I liv...

Re: -=-=-=SHARE YOUR BF 2012 EXPERIENCE! - OPEN=-=-=-

Well as I woke up late, I think I'm blowing off the one local discount bookseller's sale (they operate like Tuesday Morning and are open six or eight times a year for 2/3 weeks at a time). You have to go in person, there's no web ordering, you never know what is going to be on the shelves and frankl...

Re: 8pm Strategy

I think it really depends on the Wal-Mart you go to. Some are run very well and some not so much, some will get plentiful quantities of the item(s) you want and some none at all. I got burned on BF 2008 on women's jeans and was able to get a manager to sell me better quality jeans for the BF price (...

Re: Target

Beware! I have found the Find Item In Store function on the website to not be updated often enough to be relied upon when it's not Black Friday and made long fruitless trips to stores only to find that that Target doesn't have the item after all.

Vibrant Pets 50% off all supplements sale

My favorite pet food supplement is on sale today only (all day Black Friday). It's made up the road from me (here in Virginia) by some retired military veterans who have a lot of experience in the pet food business and therefore know all about how pet foods just aren't as nutritionally good as they ...

Re: Anyone from Roanoke VA?

Well I'm further up I-81 than all y'all are (my closest options are either Harrisonburg, Front Royal or Winchester) but it's good to see lots of Shenandoah Valley area people on here. I think I'm gonna do most of my shopping online though this year though I might go out to a nice lunch in a couple o...
