As well as a couple $8.88 Logitech mice, $29 COD Black Ops III for PS3 (maybe-I may decide to just buy it for the PS4), TWD Season 5 and Big Bang Theory Season 7 for $9.96

Other than that I'm just going in for the $8, $15, and $25 video games and the sub-$5 assorted DVDs and Blu-rays.



All in all, it looks like I'll be waiting until FRIDAY this year to shop in-store.


If you don't mind refurbs (and you see this in the next 5.5 hours) check out electronics.woot. They have somerrefurbed home theater stuff including a 35$ blu ray player. I guess $40 after shipping.

So today on FBN Cavuto had Walmart CEO on. He said "they are doing away with doorbusters for this year. They want peeps in the stores and are going to have super in store specials, similar to the old Kmart blue lite specials. They have plenty of merchandise and are marking things down as low as 96% off. They will not be beat in price on anything, will price match BF."

Just thot I would share info......

Are referring to the XB1 bundle? I'd confirm it with the electronics department manager and ask if they will be there when the sale begins. Had them PM an ipod deal many years ago with a GC for the same amount (Best Buy paper ad in hand) at 10:01pm to capture the savings.

Don't rely on anyone to honor your request at zero hour. The WM peeps are flustered most of the time and BF will spin their minds into overdrive unless to plan ahead, watch how prices ring up and be firm on your intent.

I don't believe they will match gift card w/purchase. I think they will only match the actual price.
You could maybe take the chance but I wouldn't go in assuming

The SE Roku is a copy of the Roku 1 if anyone wanted to know.

https://www.roku.com/products/roku-se


Looking for a cheap streaming gadget to hook up a spare TV to Netflix, Hulu and the like? Roku is making a play for bargain hunters with the new, super-simple Roku SE — which will sell for just $25 (half off its regular price) on Black Friday.

Don't expect many frills: The SE is much the same as the Roku 1 (also $50), the company's current lowest-tier device. It offers 1080p playback over Wi-Fi, but no Ethernet plug or 4K support. The remote, too, is identical to the Roku 1's — no voice controls or headphone jack for private viewing or listening.

No they will not PM gift cards or %'s off. You have to have the actual ad/pull up on device, in order for them to price match. This is what I have been told in past years.

Tinytim35, it's 2015 and it won't hurt to ask the electronics department manager ahead of the sale. I got one to PM an iPod touch five years ago via GC. The curve ball will be securing the item through a wristband and/or corral in the remote location on your specific store's map and paying at the electronics register (hopefully with the same manager in the immediate area if there is a problem).

I had to remind the manager and force fed the associate verbatim to secure the PM with a TRU hardcopied ad.

The past few years folks ringed the wrapped pallets of games and movies under the watchful eyes of WM employees til the bell rung. The posse was as much as twelve deep at the last minute with squatters on the scene three hours prior.

Past locations were in a typical grocery aisle. This year's map is in the drink section. with the hard liquor really close by. Get a bunch of pushy people around expensive glass items and you-know-what can happen. Let's hope it's in the pop aisle with end caps removed for everyone's safety.

I convinced myself the 7" RCA tablet for 28.88 isn't a bad investment. It gives my wife a phone alternative, a platform for pimping her Mark Kay products and introduces the family to a handy device for usage instead of a laptop. If she or we were dead set on the Air 2 (which we're not) it would be a different thing.

I still can't wrap my head around Walmarts wrapping their pallets in plastic. I can honestly see how people get hurt trying to get to them. I'm just thankful our Walmart does it differently.
