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.


For anyone trying to decide whom to believe, please note that chunlibarbie is often wrong. It's pretty clear to most people about 10 or 10%.

Just so people know Target has changed there ad a bit, it no longer shows 1600 ms points card for $10 it now shows 3 month xbox live card in its place. Which sucks because i planned to use targets ad to price match the 1600 card at walmart.

How does the Amazon lightning deals work?

Thursday 11/22/12
5:10 am - 9:10 am PST
MLB 12 The Show (PS3) $15.00
Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Future Soldier (PS3/Xbox 360) $25.00
Zumba Fitness (Wii) $25.00
Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim (PS3/Xbox 360) $25.00

So does that mean they all go live at once or each hour? Trying for Skyrim.

All at once. And they're all sold in real-time while supplies last. Locking a purchase in on a Black Friday Lightning Deal makes you worthy of a fist pump.

Anyone know if the PS3 holiday bundle is strictly in-store at Best Buy? I want to buy it as a gift and might as well get reward points for it, but I don't want to wait in line for three hours just to get it so Amazon might be my other option. I have to pay tax either way.

So I was going o buy wwe 13 but I bought the collectors edition off eBay brand ne and sealed instead because I thought it was really cool. But then I started thinking it might be worth more money if I don't open it so I'm not sure. It actually does seem really rare. It comes with a special cover art with stone cold Steve Austin skull, exclusive collectible art personally autographed by stone cold, and a few exclusive dlc codes, and a wwe DVD. Do people think I'm better off not opening this or u think it will be ok? I bought it because I really wanted to play it but if it don't come in the mail by Black Friday I may still buy it anyway and keep the collectors edition sealed but what do you guys think? For those wondering I payed $84 for it shipped and msrp was $79.99 when it came out.


Anybody?

Are they still on sale, I hid a couple today because I thought some reseller would snatch them up, it turned out they had 2 racks with probably 60-80 each. Hope they are still on sale!

It's on the list to let silver members order monday so I would guess online.Someone just posted you could pre-order it at Toys r us if you have to pay tax anyway.

They arent going to be, i planned to pick up alot of them because it was basically like buying money half off. lol Must of just been a misprint, since it was fixed before the printed ads release im sure it was always meant to be 3 month card and not the points, its a real bummber tho.

Question that may have already been asked but I don't feel like browsing over 120 pages: Any idea if some/all of the Gamestop BF deals are going to be available online? I want to get a PS3 controller but damned if I am going out in BF traffic for a controller. Amazon currently has a PS3 controller for less than a dollar more but I have a $25 Gamestop giftcard to burn from e-Rewards...

Hey guys, do you know if I buy the Xbox 360 250 GB Holiday Bundle at WalMart when I go pick up some games at 8 PM on Thursday would I be able to price match Best Buy's price even if they aren't open yet or would I have to wait until 12 AM ?

I just saw the Microsoft store deals. I'll be buying Forza Horizon for $15 and AC III for $25. Also looking at the Target black friday ad as stated by the OP it seems they will be selling an xbox live 3 month sub rather than the 1600 points card that we were told. I was thinking of buying five xbox live 1600 points card. I would be purchasing 8000 points, but for only $50. I would have plenty of points from now till atleast the end of 2013. But now since it's a 3 month sub cards for me it's not worth going to the stores and wait in line. I'll be doing all my purchases online.

Without a Microsoft store nearby, what would be the best way to go about getting Froza for $15? Where would be most likely to price match in store and/or will MS be selling it online at that price? Thanks!

I believe Wal-Mart is selling it for $15 also. Thursday.

I know this is probably a no, and probably been answered 100 times. But Walmart...will their deals be online? Not looking forward to braving their crowds for one game.
