Walmart / 1st Saturday in Nov Sale

Postby nakeya » Tue Oct 18, 2011 9:30 pm

I'm looking forward to the 1st Saturday in November sale. I've been able to get some really good pre-bf deals that day. Does anyone recall when they released the sales flyer for it in previous years?

I don't really remember a flyer. Seems like it just was released on the site earlier that week. I got my laptop at that sale...good deal. I was first in line...I say line...actually I got there and that shift didn't know they were even having a sale haha. They put me in a spot and moved around a few times.

How much were the laptops selling for during the pre black friday sales? Looking to get 1 for 14 yr old son!

Oh man, we're going to be in Kentucky on the Bourbon Trail that Sat! Oh well, I guess I'll be missing those deals! But maybe I won't mind!

If I can recall correctly, they were around $298. Last year they were Compaq and the previous HP. Best Buy normally does has the similar sale on that day also. Can't wait. I was able to get a 19 in LED last year. I think I paid like $99. It is super thin and has excellent color. I can also remember them selling video systems with gift cards...

That's right...$298 for a Compaq. It's been a good enough laptop. Not many glitches so far.

I hope they do another 19 inch TV this year again for around the same price. Got the one last year for one of my friends since I was already going to be there, and that thing is spiffy. Now I need to get one for my son since his TV is one of the old clunky ones and now has lines across it. :?

They have the 19 inch for $98 right now in the store, and the compaq for $248 (Got all 4 in lay-a-way) so no need to do the black friday laptop line :)

The toshiba laptop that is 328 at wal mart right now is awesome. i cannot rave about it enough. we have the compaq that is 248 as well, and my toshiba runs rings around it. Chris has problems with the wireless card on his compaq all the time, and I have never had an issue ever with my toshiba.

Both me and the hubby have Toshiba, LOVE them!!! Have had HP, Dell, and Compaq in the past and none of them have held up to our Toshibas, but the $248 price point is good for the boys and what they need so I can not complain. But yeah, if I was getting myself one, it would be the Toshiba all the way :)
