Guess not.


Way to be a dick about it. So what if he's been on here for 8 years. Every year for Black Friday changes as policies changes.

As to that answer, I don't think you can. Only b/c its too chaotic that day but I guess it depends on the store and their Black Friday policy though.

Does anyone know when Best Buy's sales start? Is it 8 pm like everywhere else?


They open at midnight.

To fully answer, No it won't work. Walmart like other stores shut down returns on BF.

Walmart has base white 4gb 360 and Skylanders for 149.99 Thursday. I was about to pay 75 just for Skylanders for our little one.

For me my main goal is the PS3 Bundle. My PS3 struggles staying on and that price is way too good to pass up. I just hope some places will sell it online cause I'm pretty sure I probably will work on that day. That or get a friend who maybe in line to grab one for me.

I've never bought a system on BF. I'm always a small item guy. I know TVs move extremely fast. Does anybody with experience know if systems move just as fast?

Last year the PS3 Holiday Bundle sold out everywhere. Keep an eye on Sony's website. They will also have this bundle for $199.

Thanks man for that info. I'll keep Sony's website in mind. I'm trying not to worry about it too much till I see my schedule. I'm hoping I get that night free to camp out. I'm new there so there is no way they will let me request that spot off.

I already own the original edition of Battlefield 3 that came with the Back to Karkand expansion. Is picking up another copy (the Premium Edition) for $25 the cheapest/best way to get all the other expansions? Or am I overlooking something?

I just received a text from target linking me to a map of my local target store showing where each doorbuster is located at. It looks to me each target will have the doorbusters in random locations than where you would otherwise think they will be.

For Example, the video game doorbusters at my closest target will be hidden in the sportswear section while my second closest target will have them at the menswear section.

I find this funny cause some CAGs are planning on hiding stuff around the store and now Target is doing it to themselves. :lol:

P.S. Also some doorbusters will only be available on 11/23 at 4AM even though Target opens at 9PM on Thanksgiving night.

they aren't hiding it, they are voiding huge crowds in one area i.e. electronics. Walmart does the same thing.

So Best Buy isn't going to price match, but anyone know who is? Will Target?

Also, will these deals be online also? Or in-store only?

I'd appreciate any help, thanks.


Last year, I believe that WM & Target price matched...someone please correct me if I'm wrong.

Best Buy NEVER price matches on Black Friday.

I found a target selling the doorbusters for HDTVs hidden in the women's maternity section. :lol:

When i worked at a Walmart a couple years ago they did it. No real reason or ryme. For some reason they thought it would be a good idea to put a cheap laptop right in front of the doors. Soooooo dumb.

I just hope nobody gets trampled, pepper sprayed, stabbed or shot. As a joke on BF I've always said put Q-tips on sale and people would fight over them.

FLOL, my closest one has all the videogame related items at location "C", which is noted on the map as being the Fitting Rooms outside the maternity section. :drool:

I'm not-so-secretly hoping for the opposite, since no chance in hell I'll be going out to deal with the Black Friday masses. Nothing like a healthy dose of schadenfreude from countless stories of consumer rampage, riots and misdeeds delivered via the evening news to help digest the Thanksgiving meal.

SPLASH!

i kinda hope people do, to highlight how fucking insane the whole thing is.

These deals are not so special that you couldn't make up the price difference with a couple extra hours of work or some creative flipping. It honestly seems like it's not about the deals, it's about "winning" something.

Have any of you submitted a lower price to amazon for black friday? Because I swear to mutha freaking god if you all don't YOU ARE DEAD TO ME!!!!!

People on CAG whine all the time about Amazon failing us throughout the year and well the biggest sale of the year is upon us. Do something about it!!! Submit a lower price so amazon knows if they don't step it up this year most of us will move to Best Buy and NewEgg..

Does anyone use the price tracker around BF? Does it work for short-lived sales? I'm looking to get a deal on AC Brotherhood and I can see it not getting a lot of attention or lasting long for under $10.

Amazon is probably well aware of these Black Friday prices by now without anyone doing the futile crap of submitting lower price alerts to them. They aren't stupid. They will either match some of these prices or set their own prices regardless whether or not 5 people or 50 million people submit a lower price to them.

My Target is dumb as hell. They have all the videogame stuff right next to electronics so that was a huge move....not, but worst of all they put all the movies right at the entrance near the checkout lanes. That pretty much just fucked any plans of getting anything movie related at Target.
