I feel like other companies might just wait for the first guy to break the ice... then they assemble a team and try to undercut the deals.

I shouldn't say "I feel", I should say "I hope."

It doesn't really work that way. These ads are made weeks in advance. But with that, sometimes ads change and have in the past (see MicrosoftStore 2014 Ad).

It's a shame to see the stores staying with the early open times on Thanksgiving. I feel bad for the employees. I mean, can you really enjoy your Thanksgiving, knowing you have to go to work soon? I was hoping they would at least push it back to 10ish. Anyone else miss the days when the stores opened at 2 am?

You can get off your soap box.  The employees I talked to last year were perfectly happy with their time and a half pay they get for working that night.  They also aren't forced to work all day.  They can have Thanksgiving lunch, like my family has done the last 10 years.  I haven't had a Thanksgiving "dinner" since I was in high school.  It shouldn't matter what time you celebrate.

 

Where's your cry for the NFL players who play every year? The concession workers? The refs? The parking attendants?  

 

I love when people complain about and even claim to boycott retail stores for having employees working on Thanksgiving but will support the NFL for being "open" on Thanksgiving.

Not seeing Tomb Raider for $40 has me considering doing a pre-order now at Best Buy.

It's a Square Enix game. It's bound to drop somewhere soon.

 

Also, why advertise a new game on sale a week before it's release? It's its some kind of saving, that's one thing, but they can't just drop the price for the sake of dropping the price.

Is the Friday deal for 3 months of XBL for $14.99 the usual price each black Friday at most places

I'm confident that BB, Amazon, Target will all have NFS for $40. Standard EA Black Friday price.

Cool.

Last time I went to Meijer for black Friday, the Starbucks there opened at 3am, which I thought was awesome. Hope they do that again

If they get time and a half as well, they're going to be more rich than I am, so they can suck their crappy coffee drinks.

I agree that some do not mind working, though I'd be willing to bet that most would prefer not to work so early. The average NFL player salary is 2.5 million dollars and referees make about $200,000 on average. That's a lot more than an hourly employee at Target makes during the year. While it's true attendants do not make much, they knew it was possible they'd be working on Thanksgiving, when accepting the position. All I'm saying is, it would be nice if the stores weren't so greedy and let their employees enjoy Thanksgiving. Most shop online these days anyways.

Don't they sell beans pooped by some animal? Maybe not Starbucks, but I think that's an actual thing.

Retail employees knew what they signed up for as well.

At what level of pay does your desire to be with your family stop mattering? Just checking the number at which the standard doubles.

It doesn't. The home teams who play on Thanksgiving, still get to be with their families. Same goes for the away teams if their game is early enough.

This. Yeah I want Thanksgiving off but at all my retail jobs I (and every employee) was told that we'd be working all holidays if needed. It's not likely that you wouldn't be needed and thus you will be working most holidays.

 

With that said, if you want retail stores to be closed, you should want ALL other stores / companies to be closed too.

 

But it's easier to speak with your dollar. Don't spend money in store on Thursday / BF and it might go back to the way it was.

You are correct. Guess I'm thinking of the ones, where retail is all they can do. I never used to feel bad for retail employees, until stores starting opening at 6pm Thanksgiving night.

I wish this were the case. Sales were down 12% last year, but the stores are opening early again.

It is. I've heard of it, too. Some kind of cat or lynx or something that lives in South America that somehow makes the beans taste better by running them through its digestive system.

I really don't mean to sound like a dick but if all you can do is retail than you have less of a reason to complain. If you need the money, than working a holiday isn't that big of a deal.

 

Maybe I'd feel different if I had kids or something but I find the time to spend with my family on the holidays even though I work most of them.
