Last year I slept on the black friday deals then decided I wanted a PS3 Bundle on Saturday. Checked 2 Best Buys, Target, Walmart, Kmart, all sold out. Ended up finding it at Radio Shack. YMMV.


but radioshack is selling the ps3 bundle for $219.99, as oppose to most other retailers selling it for $199.99.

Radio shack has $40 worth of coupons with it tho which could make it a better deal. I have no idea what those coupons r however.

I'm sorry to revive this subtopic, but if I understand the "Walmart Layaway BF Loophole" correctly, can I do the following?

1. Go to my local WM today or sometime this week before Thanksgiving/BF.
2. Ask for the games I plan to get on BF (XCOM, Forza Horizon, and Spec Ops) to be put on layaway, putting down $15 for each one ($10 + $5 layaway fee).
3. Come back on BF and walk over to the Layaway counter.
4. Ask for my layaways to be cancelled and replaced so I can get them at their BF prices.
5. Pay off all three games at some point ($25 for XCOM, $15 for Forza Horizon and Spec Ops).

I assume this could work since those games' prices start at 8pm Thanksgiving and are valid while supplies last.

i personally cannot find $40 of stuff at radioshack to spend it on, because even their bf sale prices tends to be higher than other retailers

According to the Official Walmart Facebook Rep/s, yup. You should check out their Facebook and print out some stuff.

Quick question, I obviously plan on buying games Thursday night but also will be purchasing the HTC one-x phone which comes with a $100 gift card on the spot, but that's Friday morning. I dont see why this wouldn't work but maybe those with more experience can lead me to an answer.

If I buy the games Thursday, then get the gift card Friday morning could I essentially bring the games back and have my credit card refunded for the purchase and on the spot repurchase them with the gift card? Sorry if it seems confusing just trying to essentially learn a way to burn that gift card towards my previous black Friday game purchases. Thanks in advance!

So can most of these deals be had online too?

I'm looking at some games at Walmart and also a 360 controller at Toysrus, so could I go to their website and maybe pay shipping? Or is it only in store? Last year I stood in line for hours it seemed like at least and never got what I was looking for. I had never done black friday shopping before either.

You need to check when the video game deals end. You can't match the prices until 9am on Friday assuming there aren't 200 people doing the same thing. If the sale prices end at midnight you would be out of luck anyway.

You put down 10% and there is only a single $5 fee. So it's not $45 down, more like $20-$25 depending on tax. I wouldn't ask for layaway to be cancelled, just say price match items on layaway. If they cancel the layaway you lose that $5 fee. To price match they remove an item one at a time and add it back at new price.

I don't know why people keep asking if these are online. If you don't find it in the ad or on the company's website BF info, who knows(other than corporate)?

I would stick to the $15 min PER item mentality, to be on the safe side.

Though their policy is a bit confusing with their wording. The main policy says see details, the full details says to see the policy.:whee:

If I get around to this, I will go in expecting a $15 minimum for EACH item.

I work there. It's 10% down plus the $5 fee. The fee is refunded on a gift card when you pay off.

Do you happen to know roughly how much inventory of each TV on sale they will have? I'm going for the Cheapo 50" Emerson. I read somewhere else that someone said like 20 of each but they weren't really sure.

I seriously don't understand how someone could misinterpret that as having to put down $15 per item. It's very clear, to most people at least.

Mass Effect 2 for $10 like 3 years ago was the last time I got a game there lol. I'll be in the store at 5 for Max Payne. Also, Kmart doesn't seem to put their Black Friday games together on a shelf. Max Payne will most likely be on the cheap game rack instead of the main case.

Because that's what it says.;) No interpretation is needed. It doesn't matter, as long as I get what I want at the price I want it for.
