You copied this from Slickdeals. I wanted to do some sort of scavenger hunt or something of the like, but we need to get these shirts out quick so people can wear them on Black Friday. Plus, we've still got plenty of other shirts to do something unique with. LOL! Now that I've had time to go back a...

I want one of these shirts so bad that I'd be willing to take a pic of every member of my household, including my dog, wearing it. But yes, I will gladly post a pic of myself wearing the shirt, in the freezing cold, camping out in line. As for a contest idea, I liked the idea of the first 50 unique ...

We will redraw the prize.


Thanks for the info! :D

I usually hit TRU as my second stop on BF directly after BB. Two years ago was the last time I went though. I was informed as soon as I walked in the door that all but the Barbie doorbusters were gone by a miserable looking guard guy. I wasn't there for the big ticket items, just a few small ones. H...

I wonder if they'll post the winners next week for this week's contest. That would be awesome.

If I win, I'd definitely tell you guys. Lessen the mystery a bit.... :wink:

First, let me state that I'm not trying to cause a commotion, although I know my opinion on the matter may garner one... My problem with "seat savers" is this: For 7 years of BF's, I have had to drive an hour or more to sit out in the freezing PA air in all kinds of weather conditions. Sno...

I've never worked at BB... my cousin does. The electronics retailer I worked for was not a BB, it was something else.

As soon as we're done with dinner on Thanksgiving, me and my one-person tent, small personal heater, laptop (although I don't know if there's wi-fi at our BB), sleeping bag and home-made sign that says "I'm first! Back off or face the consequences..." will be stationed in front of our loca...

A long time ago, I was an assistant manager for an electronics retailer (who I will not name) and we were never allowed to touch the BF deals, unless it was something that we had in mass quantities (like blank DVD spindles, silly stocking stuffers or cell phones). And even then, if we happened to ru...

I too am going completely insane waiting for the ads. Although since the new BB opened here and my cousin is management, maybe I can talk him into letting me glance at the ad and then I'll get on here and tell all of you what deals they're having. But *sigh*, he's pretty straight-laced so I doubt he...

As a BF enthusiast, I will be breaking my golden rule this year and allowing my husband to "line jump" whenever he decides to come join me. Previous years,we've had to drive over an hour to get to the nearest mall that had a BB. This year, we won't have to. They opened a new shopping cente...

I think C & D letters are dumb. I can understand if the retailer's deals are leaked in say, October, but in November, why? Most major retailers already have their BF deals set by the first week in November, so it's not like the competition is going to just up and change all their deals that are ...

Re: Man Oh Man

I am already getting excited about BF this Year I am hoping to get some awesome things and have already started saving up money, Anyone think that it might be possible to get a nintendo ds for cheap? I got a DS bundle last year at Best Buy for $149 + tax. It came with a starter kit and 2 games, plu...
