It's not a PACKED Wal-Mart, but I'd say it gets pretty bad. I might get my mom and brother on Amazon, too; at the same time. When the sale starts, we all hit buy. One of us is bound to get the game, right?

If we do get it, how will we know? Because say we all get a copy; we'll want to cancel so others get one.


it'll put it in your cart if you were successful. then whoever gets it can just make a call. you have 20 minutes to cancel it if you don't want it (in case your brother and mother both get the same game).

Even if Wal-mart doesnt let you PM the games you have on layaway, couldnt you just pay them off, then return them?

I think I'm forgoing Wal-Mart and going with Amazon. My brother and cousin are getting on at the same time. NBA 2k13 might be hard, but it shouldn't be a problem getting Dishonored, really.

WWE '13 will be really easy. No one will be rushing to get that. Based on it's time and the other games available, I doubt that many people are getting on for WWE '13 :lol:

Just gotta convince them that you said it would only be on sale for twenty minutes and she told you you were wrong.

Has anything been confirmed for Cyber Monday? I want to buy a monitor with my gift card but I don't know if I can get anything Friday. Also does best buy ever post BF deals online?

lol, that's not going to happen. People would probably die or at least end up in the hospital.

Edit: In years past I've been able to go in a day later and still get the BF prices on stuff.

This trick also works for the apple store. I may try this this year for the deals I expect to go quick.


I wouldn't call it a trick; it's just another method you can use.

I won two of the Amazon Lightning Deals last year using the iPhone App (Killzone 3 & Resistance 3). However, I would only consider attempting the Lightning Deals as a last resort. It appears that this year, there are a few more options to consider in terms of stores for a majority of games. Because of Walmart & Best Buy, I'm not even sure if I'll have to use Amazon this year, but we'll have to wait and see what happens. Best of luck if you use it though! :)

I'm wanting to get a walmart tv this year. How organized are the lines for them? Does each tv get its own line or do you stand in one long line hoping yours doesn't sell out? I remember last year it seemed kind of organized.

I'm........sorry? I'm just being honest...

Last year was my first Black Friday where I used my iPhone for everything. I had just gotten it that year, and it came in handy. Last year was also my first experience with Lightning Deals. Years previously, Amazon had deals available for a longer amount of time (non-Lightning Deals) which made purchasing things much simpler. With the Lightning Deals, I didn't know what to expect. I had just the same amount of luck as everyone else, so it's wrong to call it a trick. I had no advantage over anyone. It just happens that I won two of them.

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!

Well, how the hell else would I explain it?

Okay, okay...

I got lucky on two Lightning Deals.

Is that better?

Yeah, that's better.

lol....

How hard would it be to win those lightning deals? Are my chances realistically very low on video games?

Those Walmart deals are really enticing but I think I am going to pass. I have a backlog of 10ish games, can get Dishonored or NFS later. Might hit up Target for those live cards though.

I think there might be a mistake in regards to the target add. I couldn't find the 1600 MS points @ 10$ anywhere in it. I did find a 3 month xbox live gold card for 10$ though. Am I just missing it?
