I have both consoles and use the PS3 a lot more. You can play online for free, unlike the xbox360, and it has never broken down while my xbox360 has broken twice. I highly recommend the PS3.

It appears that BB is going to be matching the 129.99 for the Nabi 2 tablet that walmart advertised!

I think we decided to just get the kindle fire and a case instead. Too much trouble for the Nabi. if we did BB for it we would have to be in three places at once.

I'm wondering how early we should get there for the Xbox live cards. I've never tried to get anything like that.

Hi, guys. I'm new here and I'm somewhat new to Black Friday. I just have a quick question I hope you guys can help me out with:

Does anyone know what time Walmart usually gives out tickets for their ticketed items? I'm interested in getting the 40" Emerson and the 24" Orion HDTVs that both go on sale at 10pm. I'm not going by myself, so two different lines for two different items shouldn't be a problem, but we also want to buy things that go on sale at 8pm.

Will we get our tickets by then? Or will be stuck in line until 10pm?

snow...if you want items on the 8pm sale you will need a 3rd person to shop for those.

I would suggest checking for a line about 4 pm for the deals you mentioned....possibly earlier depending on your store/city

2 years ago my Walmart didnt give out the tickets until 2 hours after the sale started, they were misplaced and they didnt know how many they had. It was for a cheap laptop that they ended up only having 4 of. I was 10th in line and missed out on everything else but was happy to get out of there with my life.

Re: walmart BEWARE OF WALMART TABLETS

Postby reygato » Sun Nov 18, 2012 7:21 pm

I'd suggest you sticjk with the IPAD or the high end Samsung and avoid the cheap knock off tablets.....they are just that...cheap knock offs that do not do much.

I perused the AD. Much as I hate going out on Thanksgiving Night, I plan to stop drinking at about 4 and go over and grab the TV that is guaranteed to be sold at 8pm. Much as I hate Walmart, they state that if they run out they will hand out rainchecks.

Did not see anything else I want. The kids TV broke, so I need a new one.

I really need to get either the 40" or the 50" Emerson TVs. What time do you think would be a good time to go get in line for either?

The last time I went to walmart was 3 years ago to get an HP laptop, I was about 3rd in line at around Midnight for the 5AM sale. I bet it's worse than that this year. 5 Hour gap most likely won't work.

Last year my local had an aisle cordoned off once the limit of people matched the number of doorbusters they had on hand they closed off the back gate. One bathroom break per hour was allowed. They wanted to wait til 90 minutes prior to sale time so line cutters, ticket selling and stealing wouldn't take place. One of the most organized WM activities I've ever witnessed.

Sounds like what my cousin said was going to happen at our local Walmarts. Maybe it was a success so they spread the word?

I'm loving the in stock guarantee on the ipad! However what do you experts think.....do I need to arrive well before 10pm? Obviously I intend to get there by 9:45, I'm not going to walk in exactly at 10 or after.

My concern is that the ad doesn't state how many are in stock per store. Say there are 10.... and I get there at 9:45..... and there are 50 people in front of me.... there's only one register in electronics..... the first 10 get ipads and get offered the extra warranty which takes extra time, then 40 get cards (how long does that take?).... so if they can't handle all 50 people ahead of me in one hour.... will I be screwed?? Do I need to strategize and maybe arrive earlier?? I don't want to miss this deal. It's not like anyone else has a great deal on ipad!!

I love the "guarantee" it's just I wish we were clearer on details.... I will arrive earlier if need be..... what do ya'll think???
