You can't PM from Thanksgiving through the following Monday.

So YMMV at best. But not PMing over this time is pounded into CSRs heads every year so I would almost just say 100% no


figured, but I thought I would double check!

So basically after 240 replies, no one besides the TS can vouch for the 'unadvertised sale" ?


I was thinking the same thing.

I will vouch that they did something very similar last year, we just didn't have advanced notice of it. I remember browsing the same BF ad that was on their webpage on Turkey Day last year, and it had some added pages of 'online only'-type deals. Some of them were pretty decent. It wouldn't surprise me at all if they pulled the same thing this year.

As the BF ads get 'leaked' earlier and earlier every year, I think it's nice that some of the company's try to have something else hidden up their sleeves as a nice little surprise when the big day comes.

I talked to my buddy who works there, he said the monitors are gonna be on sale. Obviously, people aren't gonna take second hand information here, but I'm fairly certain it'll happen if he says it will.

Anyways, still would like to know, they won't price match their own prices on BF? Can you do in store pickup today and adjust the price when ya pick it up Friday? Will this be online as well?

I don't get the decision to not have a GameCube disc reader on the system. Is it just to resell GCN games as eShop downloads later? Is it to keep the cost down? I can't imagine adding GameCube BC would cost a lot of money.

No. No PMing. Is it that hard to comprehend?

Well, I mean when you do in store pickup, don't they usually have you pay the current price? And if you were to pick it up Friday, the current price would be the BF price, right? No reason to be snippy, we are all here for the same thing. Alternatively, if you bought one not too long ago, I would think if you physically went to the store on BF, maybe they would give you the adjustment because you showed up on BF?

I believe that there's a deal because why else would they have like 20 of those LCD screens in-store if they weren't going to be on special?

The PlayStation Move w/LBP2 is a great deal but I would need other Move controllers to play with the family and than it becomes a bad deal. Not spending anymore than $50 on anything Move. LBP2 GotY is also $10 on Black Friday so I'll skip out on the move. Not worth it.

If they did that then I would just buy all the BF ad items I wanted and stop in on BF for a guaruntee of BF prices without the BF waiting outside.

I'm not snippy, just this has been explained 50 times over. Is there a different way to explain it that you would understand?

Best Buy never does in-store pickup on Black Friday since customer service is closed off. The stores are also instructed to not do any PMs through cyber monday.

Proof:
No in-store pickup.

No PMs through cyber monday.

That's crazy that there would be no customer service for a whole day. The only other route I was thinking was a return/rebuy, but yeah if there's nobody at the desk, no way I guess. Thanks anyways. I only ask in the thread for the good of everyone, we're supposed to be the savvy shoppers here you know? Thought maybe there was a way around the hassle that someone may have figured out is all.

I got battlefield 3 limited edition on BF last year using in-store pickup, ordered when it went live and picked it up at around 6am at best buy on BF. The in-store pickup section was open so I was in and out real quick. Guess I was lucky?

Looking back at the emails:
Order confirmation Wed, Nov 23, 2011 at 11:37 PM (technically 11/24 BB time)
Order is ready for pickup:
Fri, Nov 25, 2011 at 2:00 AM
Thank you for picking up order:

Only for the people that ALREADY bought the PlayStation Monitor and within the their return/exchange period:

Buy the PlayStation monitor on Black Friday for $99 then on Tues 11/27/12 return it with ORIGINAL PRE-BLACK Friday receipt. I don't know if the receipt has the serial number number on receipt. So if the receipt shows the serial number just put the monitor back into its box that has the serial number on that matches the receipt you going to return with.

I'm not sure I can tolerate fighting my way into BB at midnight for the 3D display - hopefully it wont be in-store only. I'm not sure I want it that much.

(edit: also shows 'coming soon' but with 'free shipping')

Looking good. Now to just figure out exactly when these deals are gonna go live. Remember last year? It was supposed to be 12 AM, turned out to be 5-7 AM lol

EDIT : Just asked a representative on Best Buy's Facebook page. He told me that it's basically going to be the same gameplan this year. He says "Our goal is to switch everything over at Midnight Eastern Time, but we can't guarantee that all prices will be current at that time. Our BestBuy.com team will do their best!"
