It IS the 28th. However, if you are arriving that morning, you will be missing out on the best sales. If you go out in the afternoon, you will still be able to find some bargains, but selection will be very limited. You will also be dealing with a LOT of tired and stressed out people, both store employees and shoppers. It will not be a good representation of the American people (you will be seeing us at our worst behavior! haha). Also, not something I would suggest doing if you have never even been here before. You are certainly more than welcome to join in, but just be prepared!

It will be on the 28th and is considered the biggest shopping day of the season.Stores have special sales with we what we hope are items that we want or need. The earlier you can get into Miami the better because lines begin on the Thursday before,especially the electronic stores(as ads come out you will see why).Be sure and learn where the stores you want to shop are and have plenty of money and have fun. Keep at this site for ads to be posted. It is the best place to keep watch. :)

I live in Miami and will be out at the stores on thursday, be sure to check out my wifi car webcam. You will be able to see what the lines are like ahead of time. If you have a laptop or iphone you can watch while you are waiting at the airport.

Lines normaly start that thursday around noon for Bestbuy and CircuitCity. The staples line starts later that night, and then Office Max, Office Depot, and Radio Shack start early friday morning a few hours before the stores open.

For a laptop you will probably get the best deals at Bestbuy, CircuitCity, Staples, Office Depot, Office Max, or CompUSA.
For a GPS you will most likely see good deals at Bestbuy, CircuitCity, Staples, Office Depot, Office Max, RadioShack or CompUSA.


As for shopping online, not all of the door buster items(best deals) go on sale online. Also you may have trouble getting what you want with everyone else in the US trying to buy them at the same time.

There is no stupid questions,

usually the ads are released the Sunday before thanksgiving in the Sunday Newspaper or at the store. Most of the time you can find all the ads here.

Yes, the ads are in the paper right before black friday.

However most of them get posted online by workers or people that have access to the ads before then. Just keep watching this website and you will get them early and know what stores will have what and for what prices. They already have the ads for Harbor Freight posted but you may not be interested in that ad since your looking for electronics.


If you want to have the ads emailed to you sign up for my mailing list (bfemails.com)

You may want to check out the local mall when you are in town. They usually have a lot of good deals and are open at midnight.

I hope you aren't planning on taking the GPS back to Argentina, because it won't work there.

Why not? I have to buy one Garmin and here I could download the softwares of Buenos Aires!
I know people who bought there a GPS and the used here without problem.


Do you think sawgrass is a good mall to choose? Or is better going to another mall in Miami???

Thanks all!
