So Kohls is false advertising!

See the pic below, it states that their black Friday starts online 12:01 am Monday November 20th......so, I'm online at 11:57pm and I wait til 12:01 the PS4 1tb for $199 is still showing $299.

I wait til 12:05am refresh the home screen, and it says the same advertisement, but that it's central time.......fine.

I wait til 1am, still no price change, I wait til 1:15am, this whole time I'm refreshing and still the price hasn't changed.

Get up this morning, still no change, my wife says maybe try adding it to your cart and it may change the price.......tried it......nope.

As of 8:15am EST still no change. 85189673982b202ce8a0139b50f44837.jpg5a19c1e06899df7fcffb56edf59cfd2f.jpg

So, what am I missing here? Anyone else have luck?

I could go elsewhere, but I already put the money on my wife's Kohls charge, so she will get the $60 Kohls cash with this purchase.

Good luck given how few of these consoles Kohl's has on bf.

It's a doorbuster and the doorbusters typically are never available online

I think doorbusters are in store only.

But even under doorbusters it states online

Yep, you guys are correct, it.is a doorbusters thing, Kohls just confirmed it.

I’m in the market for a new Xbox One headset and wondering if anyone has recommendations for a set on sale for BF. Currently I have the Turtle Beach XO and I’m looking for an upgrade in terms of quality. Any suggestions?

I don't think the post with the giant unnecessary pictures has been quoted enough times.

That's what I'm here for. CAG is my trusted go-to for info and not just for games. I really do appreciate the info. Me, I'm sorta of low tech in a high tech world. Always a couple steps behind most.

Stay away from HP, at least customer (lack of) support. I did find a doorbuster at best buy, Dell Inspiron 15.6" touch screen Intel core i5 8GB with 2TB HDD. Forgot to get its price.

The portability of the laptop is nice. Barely have space for one PC. I travel often. Be able to upload and edit videos on the road. GoPro. If possible, play some lower requirement steam games like Diablo 3. Then, I've heard it's better using two computers for streaming.

I might be able to use the money I was going to use for a TV and put it to use on a better laptop. Be nice to get everything online early and know how much cash is left for doorbusters and other goodies.

If you don't mind me asking, with your research, what would you recommend?

Hi, I'll add to this. I had an HP Pavillion tx1000 series about 10 years ago, the one with a swivel screen and touch screen. The thing failed in less than 2 years due to a motherboard design flaw so they could make the laptop thin (though it is still thick if compared to today's standards). The nVidia gfx on that was also to be blamed because they (nVidia) eventually lost a lawsuit. That was after I already sold the laptop, so no replacement laptop from me. HP customer service was awful and unhelpful throughout the experience. Yes, it was out of warranty, but that's how you lose customers for life.

Ever since then I have bought Thinkpad laptops for me and my close ones. I have a Thinkpad T410 that is 7.5 years old and still running its original HDD. But I also bought a T420 where the HDD died within 1 year (replaced by warranty) and motherboard died in 5 (bought a 'new' replacement from eBay - if you're into DIY, there are many guides for Thinkpads online and on YouTube). Since these Thinkpads are used by corporations, sometimes they have leftover new spareparts (to fulfill the corporations service turnaround times) and you can buy those 'new' old parts at a fraction of the cost versus going to the manufacturer. There aren't many, but enough to go around. Be very thorough with the eBay seller though. The less communicative sellers are generally more shady.

Overall, I bought 6 Thinkpads for my close ones and myself. Two had issues, including the one mentioned above and some of the fixes were done by the depot while in warranty. The major failure was Mobo failure in 5 years due some foam design flaw that ended up shorting the whole thing.

You can consider Lenovo Thinkpad if you want longevity. But avoid the entry level Thinkpad like the E-series (Edge) or SL or L. Those are not that good because those are dressed up Lenovo Ideapad. Not built for the professionals like Thinkpad is.

This is a resourceful link about used Thinkpads to familiarize yourself with the different model lines: http://ktgee.net/pos...thinkpad-guide.

If you want to buy new ones, look out at other deal websites where sometimes you will get 25-40% coupon codes depending on the time of the year (you'll probably end up paying $800-$1000 for entry level Intel Core i5 processors and some other upgrades and a lot more when you max out the options). I got the T420 above at $580ish because it came with DOS only (one of those rare moments for Thinkpads). I got a Windows license from my college's Dreamspark account back then (free OS :-D). Not too bad for a T-line at the year of release. Still cost much less than my stupid tx1000 even after factoring costs of Mobo replacement and all.

 

All the best and pay more to pay less later. That's my motto, for now.

Does Walmart have some kind of online early access?
Otherwise sounds like 12:01 am Thursday 23rd, right?

I didn't notice any. Just on the very last page they removed that game rental pass and just had a whole page dedicated to B2G1 Free

 

Edit: Sorry, briefly skimmed. I was focusing more on the back page to see if they added any games

Disappointing, no Dark Souls III: The Fire Fades Edition deal anywhere

If you're on xbox you can get the base game for $5 and the dlc is on sale on XBL for $10. Together they are the equivalent of the fire fades edition.

Wow, Nioh is only $19.99 ($16 after GCU).  That's an all-time low on what I consider the best GOTY.

Looks like the PS4 controllers at gamestop will be $38 on Thursday, for those who want to save another 2 bucks (excludes green camo).

I saw one somewhere.

 

edit - $49 at Walmart.

I believe that is the LUX model, which doesn't have a low setting and can't make yogurt (if that is your thing).

 

Kohl's has the 6 qt duo as a doorbuster for $79 with $15 kohl's cash.  Target I think also has it for $79.

So I’ve passed on it every other time it was on sale. Is $5 a no brainer for the SteamLink? Not sure if I’ll ever use it. But probably worth having.
