So going in at 9am is far from a guarantee then.

 

With that being the case, to re-interate my original question, would it be prudent to put the games I want on layaway now and then go to customer service and cancel/buy them once the BF prices are assured to work in ensure I get a copy?

No, as there's a $10 cancellation fee.

It's still a dumb question. Nobody could possibly know the answer to that.

that dumb question got multiple answers from posters giving information on what worked and didn’t work last year, giving insight into how to plan for this year.

It’s like people didn’t know the answer but we are more options/information on how we could buy games early. It’s like, we worked together to at least prepare ourselves through,... discussion.

But yo it’s a dumb question I’m dumb lol what was I thinking lol

Okie - I'll humor all these "good-natured" folk who can't seem to use Google or have any common sense (the latter here we know few in this country have).

 

All Walmarts this year should have in place an updated POS system that will notify the cashier that the sale price a BF price and NOT to sell it until BF prices are to be effective.   That's what was being test run last year at most stores, and I understand will be implemented across the board this year.

 

So -- good luck trying to overrun that.  May be you get lucky -- or well, get an indifferent cashier (though I believe you need a mgr to override that notice until the right time for the POS kicks in) -- have fun trying to deceive people for a <$50 video game!  If your integrity tries to stop you, just kick it a few times until it stops moving.

I'm not sure why people want to go to the store anyway. You can pretty much buy all the games online for the same price and at the comfort at your own home.

Lol that’s a strong reaction to an internet comment. How are you going to question the integrity of people like Roy Moore/Kevin Spacey now that you wasted your “kick it a few times” comment on a stranger talking about video game sales? Lol.

Seems unhealthy to respond so strongly to people just exchanging anecdotes about WalMarts POS and past Black Fridays

Anyone with the Samsung Galaxy S7? How is it with taking videos and pics?

Good sale in the ad. I'm looking at some reviews about the rear camera problems.

 

I would like to screen record the tv while gaming and told at least an 8mp cam will do. Record all the sounds of the controller sticks and buttons with gameplay. 4k tv with an x360.

Never taken videos but the pictures come out pretty clear and I've used both the rear and the front ones. It is a decent phone. Have the S7 Edge.

Go strong or don't bother ... Or something like that.

Unhealthy? Probably. But then so much of life is.

I know walmart won't price match competitors on BF, but does anyone think they'll do a price adjustment for something bought in their store? Like say, buy a game on the 22nd then come in BF to get the difference back in refund.

Nope.  They shut down customer service on BF to prevent exactly this kind of pre-discount hoarding.

Again - THINK about what you're asking.  Of course they wouldn't let you do it.

Pics are good. I like the 12mp camera. Looks like there are minor differences between the two. Slight Edge advantage for screen size and battery.

 

If you get the chance, would you mind taking some video of a tv?

I ordered Breath of the Wild Explorer's Edition. Not sure why the Blu Ray prices aren't up to date yet.

Thanks, was thinking it would sell out while I tried to find a filler to get free shipping but got a copy.

If I do pick up it says "available Dec. 1" anyone know the likelihood of pick up being available on Friday.

Or am I forced to wait?
