So Target opens at 9pm on thanksgiving night?


and walmart opens at 8.

Next year, Target will open at 7 and Walmart at 6.

In 2016, black friday starts on Easter.

It's getting kind of ridiculous. And having gone through a doorbuster for shits and giggles, it's completely not worth it unless you are doing it completely for shits and giggles with friends. Sometimes you can get lucky and just find what you want an hour or two after it opens.

Well that sucks. Could've used some cheap MS Points. Never went Black Friday shopping before. Looks like I'm never going now :P
Maybe I'll go check out each of them an hour after they open and hope I get lucky.

In light of the target is overpriced discussion:

Out of curiosity, what's your biggest or most frequent purchase products at target? I mean, for daily products and groceries they can't beat Costco prices, I really couldn't find anything to buy there when I scavenge for games clearance occasionally.


I buy groceries and home decor all the time.

Advantages of Target:
-5% off everything and free shipping online with your RedCard.
-Hundreds of coupons available on http://coupons.target.com/ . These coupons stack with manufacturer coupons, which also stack on top of sales, gift card offers, or even clearance.
-Their clearance outside of videogames is spectacular. I've scored so many wonderful things for my new house these past few months. Lamps, mirrors, knobs and so much more. Good looking stuff too.
-It's a clean, well organized store. I'll gladly pay a few more cents per item more for the atmosphere and to avoid "Walmart people". I'm sorry, it may sound snotty but there's a reason why there's a peopleofwalmart.com. The South Park episode where they depicted people in rascal scooters at Walmart was super accurate.
-A shower curtain may be $1-$2 more at Target versus Walmart, but you get what you pay for. You pay just a little extra to get much nicer things.
-This sort of relates to product selection. Often times at Walmart I see the trashy looking clothes there and think "people buy this?". Rarely does that thought cross my mind at Target.

Yes, if you compare items side by side without any offers, Target will often lose out. However, I feel I can have "nice" things at a reasonable price, whereas other places offer me "cheap" looking things at a cheap price. And with their stackable coupons and clearance, Target has a good reputation among extreme coupon-ers.

In comparison to some game retailers, they suck though, and that's too bad. Every so often though they have a surprising gift card offer, temporary price cut, clearance game, or crazy offers like the trade-in special thing several months back.

edit: upon examination of my comment, I was very fixated on Walmart, whereas the comment I quoted used Costco as an example. I'm sure Costco is better then Walmart, but the general ideas of why I like Target still stands.

Nice, this is exactly how would describe target. The 5% off alone is worth going there, its the only retailer I buy new games/consoles from because of that.

These are like the exact reasons why I shop at Meijer. Awesome store if you live in the midwest.

Good points, sounds like I should look harder for home decor items there next time I start decorating. For these stuff I often go to TJmaxx, they have decent home decor at very low prices, the downside is that the variation in style. You really have to wait a while until you spot a mirror that will go well with the stand that you bought. Being in LA I NEVER go to walmart, people get shot there.

I'm rather disappointed with all the B&M stores so far. A decent deal hear or there, but nothing on Gamefly sales.


Are you wanting Target to offer a free bag of chips with your game purchase? [rimshot]

I think it's about time I get one of those RedCards. I hate Target.com and prefer using real credit cards for my purchases, but 5% is 5%.

Well, at least the mystery of the vanishing POTC Black Pearl Lego sets is solved. They were like 10% off on clearance and the next day they were all gone.

If the old lady hits target, I'll have her grab a few 1600 cards, but that's about it for me. I'm not going out this year, I'm staying home with the kids and my sanity.

However Walmart's normal prices are usually at least 5% cheaper than Tartget without coupons

Well said, and the two comments I've put in bold were spot on for me. In addition to the people shopping at Wal-Mart, the people working at the two places (at least in my area) are completely different. When I go to Wal-Mart, I normally have to seek out someone to help me find anything if I need it, and I'm lucky if I get anything more than the total cost from the person ringing me out. At Target, the people are helpful and friendly. I don't go to Wal-Mart often, but when I do, I remember why it's been so long.

They like to use funbucks rather than money to stay as confusing as possible and guarantee that you usually have some points leftover after a purchase that you can't spend.

Its $20 in human money.

It's a good thing most of my family goes out on Black Friday. It's been a tradition for my sister and I to go every year now.

1.Go to Target before Black Friday.
2.Find Microsoft Points cards and hide them where no-one will look.
3.Go back later on BF and buy them.

No way I am busting the doors down, and I have a feeling that deal is going to be popular.

All it takes is 30 minutes for the store to look ransacked on black friday so good luck hiding it. ;)

I might be overlooking something but why not just take the cards. They have no value until activated anyway. Then on BF just purchase them.

You know that's not a bad idea. I've done that on accident too. They have no point value at all until purchased. :-k

Did that last year at walmart. I hid like 3 copies of a game.

2 of them were still there like a month after black friday.
