Thanks for the Info.

I was way too boozed up at Midnight of Thanksgivin last year to go out.

This year I am a Buddhist so I have no desire for material goods so no need to go out and Buy....
However, I do need a new Blender for healthy drinks and vegetarian foods, so that Blender at Macys looks good....

BJ's Wholesale Club stores will be opening at 7am on Black Friday. You can pick up the annual coupon fliers in-club over the weekend of November 10th/11th and from the 17th through the 21st of November as well.

Coupons in the flier will only be valid for the three days of the sale - 11/23-25 - and cannot be honored before or after those dates. Also, you will not be able to pre-buy the items and come back during the three days of the sale to get the coupon savings returned to you. Items in the flier might not be available at all club locations, and will be available on a first-come, first-served basis.

I know that Belk intends on opening at 12am at my local mall. I assume this would be the same for all Belk locations?

Any advice for a FIRST TIME BF shopper? I need to get my nieces, who are both in high school, a laptop to share. There are seven kids in the family so they could never afford a PC. Leave it to Auntie to step up to the plate. However, I'm a student too, so I'm broke 10 months of the year!

QUESTION 1: If Walmart opens at midnight, and I arrive at 11pm, what happens when the doors open? Someone told me that laptops aren't even IN the electronics section; that I have to find the laptop on offer somewhere in some random isle?? Am I supposed to leg it around the store to find a laptop?!

QUESTION 2: Once I collect a ticket for that laptop, do I HAVE TO stay in that line and wait to collect it? Last year, my friend stood in a line for three hours with her ticket before Walmart employees finally unwrapped the crate of laptops and began to pass them out to customers who had a ticket.

QUESTION 3: After I collect a ticket for a laptop, can I then leave that aisle to look for a TV to get another ticket for a second item? Is it possible for one person to get two tickets for two different items and still be able to collect both items?

If Walmart opens at midnight, and you get there at 11, don't expect a laptop, or anything with a ticket. If Walmart opens at midnight, I would be there NO LATER than about 7 or 8pm. It all depends on your city. That said, Walmart is always open so you can go inside, get your ticket and have a seat and wait for the midnight sales to begin.

The ticket items always have a line for them, which are typically going down isles in the grocery area secluded from the rest of the stuff so you're good there.

As far as multiple tickets, I'm unsure about that. I don't usually get ticket items at Walmart.

Closer to BF you should be able to go to WM website and get your specific WM map. It will show you where your ticket items will be located.

One person probably won't be able to get two tickets. Depending on how strict your Walmart is. You usually hve to stay in the line for most of the night.

If you can take someone with you for multiple ticketed items. Our Walmart requires you to stay in line where you got the ticket. Also get there early. We arrived at 7 last year and my sis-in-law wanted a TV. She was fifth in line despite getting there that early.

Thanks so much for this list. I was wondering what time HPB opened, now I know. Hopefully I can make it to my mains with time to get in line at HPB with their later opening time.
