Where did you find a deal on Incredibles 1 and Thor Ragnarok?


Best Buy for $22.99. It isn’t much of a “deal” but it is cheaper than $29.99.

As far as all the budget TV's being even cheaper on BF, what do you all think of TCL vs. Vizio, etc? Which have impressed you (in the long term, not the short term)....looking for reliability, as much as possible for a budget set. I'm obviously interested in them for 4K gaming but also, movies, streaming apps, etc. Are these TV's reliable? Reading some of the TCL reviews on the Best Buy website, so many people are returning them for various defects, within a short period of time. Last week, I got a Samsung NU8000 but it had issues recognizing my HDMI inputs correctly and my friends are saying, 'just go cheaper, go big for less $, and you get performance close to the high end units'. They think paying big for OLED and even models just under them is not worth it.

 

Odd thing also, but I saw a disclaimer last night (I think on the TCL website) that said TCL TV's have Styrene, which has been known to cause cancer?? Yikes. Anyone see that? Another unexpected thing to consider, I guess.

ended up with God of War & Shadow of the Tomb Raider for $14 each due to the various amazon price matches and promos with amex and the browser extension $5 coupon  :mrgreen:

 

Also picked up monster hunter world and FFXV Royal from target for $15 each and they gave me a $1 off for consolidating the orders into 1.

I bought a LG 65” OLED and have zero regrets. Did it cost me much more than other TVs? Yep. So worth it. The picture quality is amazing.

I have had numerous Vizios over the years and only had issues with one of them. I bought it from Sam’s and had to have it repaired for the same issue four times. Something like that I just look at as a string of bad replacement parts, it happens. I had no other issues than that one and have had other Vizios before and after with zero issues. I do 4K PC gaming on a Vizio P50 and it is amazing. Not a single hiccup in a year and a half now.

Vizio is a good TV set to me. When I started having my issues, I was talking with people at work and they also had Vizios but not a single issue. I just got one that took a while to act right. My kids use it as a gaming TV set that runs nonstop and no issues in years now.

What time does Black Friday pricing end?   Other than door busters, are prices still valid until closing?  Thinking about hitting up a couple of stores later

I have a Vizio that was used for gaming for a number of years with no problems.  Now it's being used as a bedroom TV and still going strong, so I certainly recommend them.

Thanks for the Vizio recommend. The Samsung I am returning has a really good picture, but the TV is really buggy with HDMI inputs, displaying the wrong info for the input I am on, not correctly identifying inputs, or calling the input the same no matter which one I am on. I will most definitely look at the Vizio.

Some deals may last through into Cyber Monday also. It's kinda hard to know which ones will stay and which won't, but I notice a lot of gaming deals do carry over into the Monday.

Good to see another vote for them!

After you install it.  There should be an offer for $5 off (YMMV) and you need to activate that first and then you need to search for the item using the browser extension and the $5 off will show up when you check out

For those that purchased a pre-owned/refurbished Xbox 360 on November 21, 2018 when Gamestop launched their black friday sale online, there's a high chance your order didn't push through due to the ancient system they have. I gave customer service a call and my order didn't pull through. So, if you are curious as to why you aren't seeing it via order history or haven't received an email confirmation a day after then it most likely didn't go through. Also, I paid via paypal.

 

Luckily, GameStop still has more in stock even though I wanted the white one *Shrugs*

Thank you. I'll keep watch. So far, still processing.

Got Red Dead Redemption Game of the Year Edition from Best Buy for my 360.

 

My main purchase was the new Samsung Odyssey+ VR headset for 40% off from the MS store.

 

For that I loaded up on VR games (from Steam or GMG):

- The CORTEAM VR Bundle (4 Serious Same VR games and The Talos Principle VR)

- Doom VFR

- Skyrim VR

- Fallout 4 VR

- Project Cars 2

 

I might still pick up Batman Arkham VR, Superhot VR, and Fruit Ninja VR while they are on sale.

Last year, movies and games were still ringing up for the sale prices on Saturday morning after Black Friday at Walmart and then went back up later in the day. Target's prices stayed the same until Sunday.

Anyway, I went out for Day Two to return the Minecraft Xbox One that I bought last week and scoop up leftovers.

GameStop
$25 PlayStation Network card
$5 Xbox Live code

Walmart
Xbox Live Gold 3 month card
$50 Google Play card (was $45)
Black Lightning Season 1 DVD
Legion Season 1 DVD
Fallout 4 Xbox One with free Fallout 3 code
Just Cause 3 Xbox One
Scooby Doo Meets Batman Brave & the Bold DVD
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (original animated series) Season 3 DVD
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (original animated series) Season 6 DVD
G.I.Joe: 2 Movie collection DVD
Sandisk 32 gb USB drive X5

Some of the crap that I bought at Walmart will probably go back next week after I've had time to regret buying it. Scooby and the Turtles were only $1.96 each. And it appeared they never had Diablo III for Switch there. I read all the shelf tags in the case.

Mine was canceled

Mine was in limbo all day but just got pick up email at 7pm. If you are still looking to buy this it looks like Amazon has matched the Best Buy price.
