Okay I called a different store and spoke to an assistant manager and she said that the items for black friday are different. As in they have different bar codes and such. So if you were to put the games on layaway now they would ring up as the normal price.

So umm.... Call again to a different one and ask for an assistant manager?


Or just put the stuff on layaway? At worst you can just bring the ad and price match their own ad. I wouldn't trust anyone at Walmart telling you anything ahead of time.

The AM can always tell you no if you call just because they want you to be in the crowd Thursday night.

Can anyone confirm that Walmart
is selling Tekken Tag Tournament 2 for sure for $25 for Black Friday?

If you look on their add on their website, i couldn't see a list,
like an itemized list or any type of list, just a picture.
In the picture it looks like from the side it looks like it says TEKKEN6

So, I had the Sly collection in my cart ready to buy for a few days now and I get right when the deal starts and learn there is a waitlist?? I sit there for ten minutes trying to join it as it fills every second a spot is apparently available. *sigh* been waiting a very long time for a deal on this game...*cries* It was pretty much impossible to buy. But I did have to leave for a bit so I didn't have full potential to try to buy it.

Looks like I may have luck on Thursday though?


you may want to keep your eye on this page (keep it bookmarked if you can) and hit the add to cart button immediately after it shows up for a better chance of getting the games you want

Considering higher ups at Wal-mart have said that if you pick up the items on black friday and pay them off that they will adjust to the sale price, I would take their word over anyone at the store.

Honestly though, if its an issue and it doesnt work, whats to stop you from just picking up the items,then returning them?

I meant if a store manager or assistant manager telling someone that they can't do that.

Obviously, if a manager says you can then that makes things easier, but you'll always get some manager who A. Doesn't know or B. Is just being a dick and will say no.

Sorry, wasn't really directed at you.

But yeah, I agree. Store Mangers/assistants will flat out say no sometimes to get you in the store or are mad that you are some how trying to "cheat the system".

But yeah, i put 2 games on layaway and will just pick them up friday. Its best just to play dumb and act like you had no idea they would be going on sale.

Hard to play dumb when you put two games on layaway that will be on sale for way less in a few days... Plus every American who isn't locked away without a calendar knows black friday is this week.

Do you really think people in lay away have any idea that what you are putting on lay away is going to be on sale black friday?

And there are still a lot of people that don't look at ads till the day of.

I just called up Walmart and they said if I placed items on layaway now and picked them up for the black friday or ahem thursday sale they would be the normal price.

Doubt it. You're not looking at new SKU being made for games... now the electronics. Much of it is likely made for Black Friday, which is pretty much the norm, and will have unique SKUs but this is because its not normally carried by Wal-Mart.
Also, remember there is a fee for using Wal-Mart layaway so some of your savings will be lost for the time being... (You get like a Wal-Mart gift card for the fee total if you do pick up/pay for items in question.)

Is there the original Skylanders starter sets going to be on-sale anywhere this Black-Friday? I looked at the ads the best I could and the only thing I am seeing is the white X-Box 360 that Walmart is going to have bundled with the original set.

I don't know why, but I wasn't charged the $5 fee when I placed the layaway last night.

I smell disappointment in Walmart Layaway. A few might get through but I guarantee the mass will not. When that happens you won't get the products you wanted and then you be complaining about losing your five dollars on this board.

Again, why can't you just pay off your lay away, and then return the items?

Same in california as well. Once they transfer the cash fee to the giftcard you can ask for it back in cash, cause the card is worth less than $10.

Never mind I found it. Clicked the black Friday deals link from the front page and it showed up with other random stuff. Did not show up under the video game deals.

Pretty upset that Amazon's not discounting Ass Creed 3 or Forza Horizon. No Microsoft store anywhere in the state (Louisiana), and I really don't want to fight my way through Best Buy, or, god forbid, Walmart.

Strategies in this situation? I'm definitely going for the Vita bundle at Amazon since I've been holding out.
