Re: why line up early at best buy?

These particular ladies are part of a 10 person group. They trade out with other members and since their husbands are the breadwinners, they naturally get the daytime shift. This is their 6th year overall. Some locations are highly competitive. It is a never-ending game of one-upmanship. California ...

Re: Face it, Black Friday is Dead!

If people were worried about missing the sales then they would have come out in the middle of the night or early friday morning. So seeing as how sales have increased with the earlier sale times, it's likely not for that reason. Earlier times allow for MORE people to come out. A lot more people hav...

The good old days... Opened at 6:00am on Friday.

Was this your ad? It brought back some good memories, then i saw the sweet tracks freebie near the back of the ad. I had to go find mine, still perfectly preserved in the tin from 2004!

Re: Best Buy

The TV offerings are extremely underwhelming. Where in the heck did they dig up all of those 60hz models? Even for the 4K version?
On a positive note, there are some solid deals everywhere in the ad once you take a longer look.

This year we are following some sage advice and have upgraded our digs and will be welcoming any who would want to join us in Jacksonville this Black Friday. We have extra tents and supplies as usual. Some alumni are flying in for the event as well. We will be camping out at Best Buy as usual. Like ...

Re: Birmingham, Alabama: Checking In

Correct! Last year it was so cold that the news reporter kept using a thermometer to show the television audience! He was betting that we would leave (naive as he was) when the temps got to 30 degrees. He and the cameraman ended up not tolerating the cold very much and started to shiver and shake. I...

Re: Birmingham, Alabama: Checking In

I'm hearing you on the heat issue. That is why we upgraded! Even with the heater last year, it was unbearable for some due to the rain and cold here in North Florida.

Re: Birmingham, Alabama: Checking In

I have seen your new digs, and it sure beat out or new 8 man tent for this year! We have some alumni flying in this year, so it is going to be a great year for the Vacationers. Instead of shirts, the group is getting embroidered hats this year. Let's hear of your entertainment options for such a lar...

Re: Duplicate boards

So long as all of the old postings are moved to their respective years, then there should be no problem with deleting the 2014 subsection.

This should also correct all of the smarmy comments from people who notice responses to those older posts.

Re: Rant...The War on Thanksgiving

Hi Everyone, Everyone's replies have been great. It is good seeing each take on this. Here is another point to ponder. If Shopping happened all day on Thanksgiving and that became the new norm how would you feel about stores opening up on Christmas Day?? 3 years ago Toys R US was actually open on C...

Re: AMA with BF Ads Writer (BFAdvisor)

13 posts and practically a no show for last year? It doesn't seem likely. And what's the deal with a couple of no-show mods for the last few years? It would be nice to get some dedicated help during this season. Perhaps the king will let us know what to expect.

Re: Rant...The War on Thanksgiving

There is no war on Thanksgiving. It is the retail war that rages during the week of thanksgiving. People who have a right to shop during that time do not need to be chided by those who choose to remain with their families instead. Furthermore, who on earth can't think outside the box and choose any ...
