Looks like premier silver members will get early access to BF deals again. I got a email stating I'll get access to select BF deals online or via phone on 11/19.

OMG! Amazon is so FEROCIOUS! I think they are coming to reclaim their name! They, already, have 1 major item I'm interested in! Hope they match some Walmart games and add some Vita ones! :D

Thanks to SD: http://www.blackfrid...-deals-revealed

Anyone know if they'll add game prices to that? Have they done it before?

Sorry to ask but at the end of the walmart ad it say that black friday deals are available all day at walmart.com (http://bfads.net/Ad/...art-2012/Page12). Does anyone know if this only applies to the deals on that page or historically have all the black friday deals been available online? (With the exception of door busters)



It says Black Friday Starts Early at Walmart.com
Shop All Day on Thanksgiving Online.

You can shop all day everyday online.
I get emails from them everyday proclaiming specials.
They're not special.
They are not going to post the printed ad deals on Thursday.
They may have a few of the BF deals online for a VERY short time,
at some completely unannounced random time.
Whatever time that is, you can expect CAG to completely choke with traffic.
It always does, but nobody knows when that will be.

YOU KNOW WHAT I REALIZED? I can buy Halo 4, and use the 20 dollar gift card to buy two 10$ 1600 MSP cards. SO i get Halo 4 plus 3200 MSP for 60 dollars. Im a smart guy huh


Isn't ms doing away with the "points" in favor of actual currency?

Not right now. They certainly want to consolidate the Windows 8 Microsoft store and Windows Phone 8 store with Microsoft Xbox Live Marketplace. 1600 Microsoft Points cards may eventually be labeled as $20 Xbox Live cards, but there is no evidence of that yet.

No. Customer Service will not even be open on Black Friday and cashiers will not be authorized to do price matches.

They don't pm bf deals, but you can buy it now and save the receipt. Buy it again on bf. return the bf copy with your regular receipt so you can have your game for the bf price.

I see that Meijer's sale opens at 6 AM Friday. Good, I get off at 3 AM from having to work Walmart, so if the vultures have picked all of their stuff clean by the time I get to shop, at least the Meijer sale will be a good consolation prize. :) Plus, that Vita game sale O_O

Best buy RZ was such a cluster last year. I think most people had good luck using their phones. And yes MrClutch, games were included last year.

Web access for the early sale was a clusterf*#ck last year. An exercise in complete and utter frustration.

Does the cart trick work at best buy.com? Where you put items in your cart before the sale goes live and when you refresh your cart page the sale prices are reflected?

Might see if I can pick up a 250gb 360 holiday bundle at Best Buy. $199 is a fantastic price for all of the stuff you get, though I would have to camp early (Ugh).


I would check the Microsoft Store online. No pushing, plenty of inventory, and usually have the same (or better) deals.

Question for everyone: I want to get a 3DS XL, and was waiting to see if there'd be a good black friday deal (apparently not). I got a $20 coupon off for one at Gamestop. Should I just use it, or should I hold out til Christmas for a (hopefully good) bundle?

Truth be told, I probably won't have much time to play it before Christmas anyway...
I'll get to writing something interesting...eventually:^o

If you won't have time to play it much then wait till Christmas; especially if your $20 off coupon lasts till then.

How quickly do Target gift cards activate? Would be interested in buying Halo 4 and then using the $20 GC on NFS:MW or MP3.

Important to remember silver members get free shipping, so make as many orders as you have to. $10 and below games go fast, as they're usually lower stock. As long as I get revelations at $9 I'm happy.

Yes I was. I made sure to stay logged in that entire time so I wouldn't miss out on anything when the deals actually became available. When I refreshed, all of the items vanished from the cart.

I just wish Nintendo had some new XL colors for the holiday. Black would be nice. Oh well.

EXACTLY.

I wonder if we'll get new colors after the holiday season, to increase sales a bit again. Perhaps in spring?

Some of those Wal-Mart deals look really nice, but based off last year, it was complete luck if you got the games you wanted.

For those that don't know, they set them up in wrapped cardboard displays around the store. People were at those displays at 8PM for an opening at 10 PM, which I wouldn't say is the worst of it. Everyone had there spot and it was a usual Black Friday day, until wrapping opening was heard in another section, which caused a madhouse rush for the games. The displays were crushed, people pushed around, etc, but everyone managed to get the games. Then security came around and threaten to kick out/arrest anyone who had a game because the displays were opened early. Everyone placed their games back, while I ran up to the games section where there was also a huge line. Being assertive, I made my way up while everyone just stood there when an associate walked by. I asked her if I could get games and she got her key to get said games. As soon as I left, a manager stated no games could be bought from the case for deal price.

Although the Wal-Mart deals are tempting, I will probably stick to the online deals.

Have there been any deals reported on the 3DS XL? Anyone think they'll be any discounts on it on BF/CM?
