Last yeat at BB I thought I was too late but... Went back toward the end of the early time and found a "Manager" returning a TV to the shelf- that some persons did not buy- the register. Got it at the sale price. Good gift for my wife- what I had realy wanted from all of the BF shopping.

Last year at staples I waited in line for a GPS and decided to get my sister a digital camera since she wanted one so bad. They had a really nice Sony one. I was third in line and got it. The guy behind me wanted one too, the bad news was they only had the one camera.

One year I went to Office max and was the first one there, got there 1 hour before they open to get a color laser printer. People started to show up 15 - 20 minutes before opening.

Somehow I went from being first in line when they opened the doors to the last person to get one of the printers. They didnt have a ticket system.

The closest I've come was when the Xbox 360s first came out, I remember it was around Christmas time. I happened to be in Wal-Mart and heard someone come over the PA system and announce that they had one 360 left in the electronics department. Apparently though I was the only one who heard or realized what they said because I was able to pick it up. I ended up turning around and selling it for about $800 on ebay.

Yes, some years ago during BF - was standing in line at a toy store buying the Gamecube - Walmart had it for 50 dollars less than everyone but the store did a price match as long as Walmart had it in stock.

Literally, I was right in front of the Manager at the register when the guy over the walkie talkie said: "Walmart is out of Gamecubes, discontinue the pricematch" - I looked at him with a shocking look and he smiled and said to me: "You are the last one!"

BF 2002 got the last Emachine computer at BB. This was my first year of BF shopping and we arrived about 30 minutes before opening. As the doors opened and we were all walking inside my mom heard the BB employee mention something about a ticket. I kept walking into the store but she stopped and asked what he was talking about. He asked her what she wanted and she told him the computer. He said here's the last ticket! I'm standing inside the store mad at my mother for holding me up when she comes in the store saying I got it, I got it!!

Last year I got the last HDdvd player at sears. I ordered a bunch of stuff online with in store pickup but couldnt do the HDdvd player online. I waded into the crowd to look for a player, none on the floor so I asked someone. He went and found me one, later I found out there was a long line of people waiting for them at a certain register and I got the last one... :twisted:
