While it is my fault that I take her with me, I don't wait in line at places at the crack of dawn and where we go is in a very small town with only a Walmart. I don't feel like me taking her at 5 am is in anyway morally wrong. We don't have the trampling issues or anything like that there. And I do...

Re: How do you pay on Black Friday?

Many times during Black Friday I have seen people's credit/debit cards get denied or not enough cash in hand to buy those door busters after tax. There is also the fear of the register not working and reverting to only cash, (saw this in 2007) or getting held up and handing over your green. So let'...

All of the retailers should form a consortium and threaten to permanently close down unless an immediate halt to the ban is implemented. Stores need to get smarter. Big box stores have the power to bring a town to their knees, if neccessary, and closing down stores in a bad economy can save them mon...

It is a toss-up between Walmart and Best Buy.

I've witnessed many gullible PC buyers waiting hours for their optimized lap or desktops. Best Buy's prices are higher than most online options to include their website which has different prices for many items. Best Buy hasn't had a true door buster in the past few years. It might be the cool plac...

Totally agree with # 1. My best buy did that last year. Only one ticket item per family. We just had people say they weren't together. I thought that was weird. If say your son is 3rd in line and you are 4th why should it matter. You got out there early enough. I don't see how they can limit the ti...

A little paranoid are we? Employees putting merchandise wrong locations to accelerate the "fun" factor and employees stealing tickets :roll: The only useful information is bringing a printed copy of the Best Buy corporate policy, even then the managers are going to do what they want and n...

I had never thought of #2. Great advise! You sound like you've done this a time or two :) Thank you, and yes, I have done this for over 15 years. Since writing this I have learned that the second manager involved in last year's fiasco was let go, and a new general manager will be in place in two we...

Best Buy tactics to watch out for in 2010

1. Watch out for the employees and managers policy switch. They will tell you that there is only one ticket per item per family. If this happens, make sure you take a printed copy of best Buy corporate policy with you. Remember that you only have a couple of hours to have the situation rectified sho...

Sorry majority....I'd give the guy my place in line regardless. If it was a scam, what am I out? A few bargains? I'd much rather miss out on a few doorbusters than turn my back on someone trying to make a good Christmas for the less unfortunate. right on!!!!! Giving a spot at Target is nothing like...

Re: Is best buy really the best buy?

I just came back from bestbuy and spent a good chunk of change on some KVM switch's and Mac cable adapters. After getting home I checked online real quick just to make sure they were decent prices and I found one item was $8 cheaper and another was $6 cheaper. Guess where I found the items for a ch...

In 2006, just 3 weeks after we got married, DH and I stood outside JCPenny at 2am to get a Christmas tree. It was a $400 tree on sale for $100. Prelit with colored lights which is hard to find. I smile every year we put it up and remember how much fun it was buying it. My wife was looking for anoth...
