Hello CAG fam, it's that special time of year again. As the BF ads start to trickle out, let's start compiling the spreadsheet. Last year, the CAG community came together and collaborated on one of our best sheets ever. So, this year, I'm using the same format that I used and tweaked last year, and you can start populating as soon as ads are available. 

 

Right now, the sheet is available for everyone to contribute to. As time goes on, I'll close edit access. So, if you'd like to register as a contributor, please DM me your email and I'll give you continuous edit access.

 

Let's do this!

Check this top level post for updates, I'll edit as there's news.

 

UPDATE - FINAL

 

Thanks everyone! See you next year!

 

UPDATE V1

 

  • We now have Gamestop, Bestbuy, Walmart, Meijer lists populated
  • We have go-live times listed for each store's sales
  • We added "lowest price" highlighting

 

UPDATE V.01

 

  • There was an issue with viewing access, everyone should have access again. 
  • Big thank you to puh_fifer and lptyger for populating the sheet with the Best Buy ad!
  • I've closed edit access (some weird things were happening...) so please DM me your email if you'd like to work on the sheet.

With "Black Friday" sales being spread out over the entire month of November - it seems like a column with date start / end would help. 

 

Appreciate the effect!  :-P

I added the print ad from BB that dropped today. You may want to limit edit access in case of trolls

Added the rest of Bestbuy. Doom Slayers, Wolfenstein and the Prey combo is guesswork. The rest is straight from the ad.

 

ENJOY!

Anyone know when TLOU2 for PS4 goes on sale at Best Buy?  Same for Yoshi's Crafted World for Switch?

I would hazard a guess on Black Friday.

Oh, I thought most retailers were starting early this year due to the pandemic.

Most of the ad starts Sunday before Black Friday. You can see specifics on their website

I'm trying to add the Best Buy movies, but it won't let me due to heavy traffic.  :shock:

For whoever was asking, all of the game deals are going to be week long, excluding the 10% off xbox/switch gift cards which are allegedly going to be for "cyber week" starting Saturday after Thanksgiving.

Something weird is going on with it...  I can't even access it to just view it anymore.  I was able to a couple hours ago, now it's demanding that I create a Google account.  :(

Not sure what happened, but everyone should have viewing access again. 

 

Had dinner, came back to my computer and 250 emails from people requesting access. Sorry guys!

 

Last year, there were bugs - I don't think Google Sheets was made for this many people, lol, so likely a bug again. Regardless, everyone should have view access now. Please let me know if you don't! 

 

Just in case, I locked up the sheet. Pls dm me your email if you want to contribute!

You got tweeted by the CAG account, thus bringing in thousands of randos.

Wait, is Resident Evil 3 for the PS4 REALLY going to be $14.99 at Best Buy?  I mean, I'm all for a deal, but that just seems like a major drop

This list from Best Buy does not seem to correspond with today’s “Black Friday” sale. Is there any indication when this version will actually start? Specifically, I’m looking at Outer Worlds for 20, which is still 30 in today’s sale.

Checking the actual Best Buy site version of the Black Friday ad, there's definitely a lot more that needs to be added as there's some additional titles listed under "Preview the Deals" in the movies and video game sections (i.e. Zoids Wild is available for $20).

Valhalla, Sniper Elite Contracts, THPS, and Doom Eternal really only going to be available for Xbox?

Either way, sales are luckily going in the direction I pretty much anticipated. Minus these, I might be spending $95 for 7 games (radically skewed by 4 for 20 Doom Slayer).
