#14233348 Black Friday 2019 Video Game Deals - Master Thread, Spreadsheet, and General...

Posted by StryderOmega on 23 November 2019 - 03:54 AM

hey everyone, spreadsheet guy here.

 

spreadsheet update:

 

i understand there is new content and that people would like to make copies of the spreadsheet or make edits. unfortunately, the spreadsheet has gotten the hug of death from the CAG community and we're seeing errors that we saw last year (no navigation appearing, copying access unavailable, error messages when attempting to edit or add edit access, etc). i'm currently working with google customer support to find a solution. i don't think google sheets are designed to sustain this kind of load. 

 

i'll keep you all posted on what google has to say. hang tight! we're working at it!

My recommendation is to finish any edits you need to make and put it into the most 'complete' state you can right now (as it will need to be updated again next week when the missing ad pages roll out). Then download a copy and place it into a dropbox or google drive for people to download their own.

Good on you guys for taking up the mantle of making a spreadsheet. ;) I wish you the best of luck in your endeavour.

I am bowing out this year. I have too much to do this year to tirelessly squint at low resolution images.

Official ad it up and doesn't show Fallout 76 discounted anymore.
Also I'm surprised they are doing the mail-in rebate only for the 4GB slim and not the basic old 360.


I will fix my spreadsheet when I get home from work.

Thanks for pointing the change out!

so tired of this response--  really saying you don't want to have to leave your family to buy material possessions on thanksgiving.  I use to work retail and loved working on holidays.  you get 1 and half to double time pay.  thanksgiving can be any day--  have it on Saturday   

I celebrate Thanksgiving with my family on Saturday. It just works better for everyone involved.

Spreadsheet has been updated to include today's changes.

 

Drop Box version of the spreadsheet has also been updated to include today's changes.

As far as I can tell, most of the BB game sales on in effect today. That's nice to see. Will have to wait for GOW and Detroit though.

 

Does anyone know if Target and Walmart usually make their game deals available online? Figure I will wait on games like Evil Within 2 and RE7 to see if I can grab them cheaper. 

 

Also, what's going on with AC: Syndicate? I saw in the spreadsheet that it's going to be $4.99, but I see it selling for $14.99 at the moment. Is it a typo or is it supposed to get cheaper later on?

It was listed as clearance before Black Friday for 4.99. I will update my sheet. There were a bunch of games in the "14.99 or less" category that were either clearance priced or no longer carried.

Sorry if this has been asked/answered before, but has anyone found a BF deal on the One X/Shadow of Tomb Raider bundle?

There are a couple stores that have a blanket $70 off xbox one bundles. Best Buy is one of them, I think.

Edit: Found the statement in walmart's ad.

why would you disable copying on the spreadsheet, just a selfish thing to do. If you're trying to help people there's no reason to not let people copy it so they can edit it how they want to. 
 
Can't even print it so I can take it to the store with me.


To be fair, in order to allow you to copy it, there is only a blanket setting to edit. So unless you want trolls to destroy the sheet, the only option is to protect it and reupload it elsewhere for download.

You do realise have 2 options of spreadsheets, right? Maybe check the other one, which I just posted about being uploaded for download.

Think about the needs of the many, before thinking about the needs of one.

I have added the Gamestop Preview Black Friday sale to this spreadsheet.

 

Edit: I have added a dropbox link to the change log! You can now download the current state of the sheet at the time of this post there! There will be a final revision update to the dropbox link when we come closer to Black Friday itself!

I assume you mean "second", but I don't see how that's relevant. I'm talking about in the spreadsheet. 

 

 

It's relevant because it, Gamestop's ad, isn't out yet. How do you expect us to get the info for the spreadsheet without the ad?

thanks, stole your spreadsheet and put it on SD for the rep
 
j/k


Honestly, the more people that see the sheet, the happier I am. If you did post it, can you just PM me the link? I like to read the criticism and try to see if there is any suggestions for fixes and lessons learned for next year.

 I was looking for three specific games this year.  Hitman Definitive, Injustice 2 Legendary Edition, and XCOM 2: Complete.  Best Buy came through on 2 of them.  But I see no stores at all putting XCOM2 Complete on sale.  I would love it if I was wrong and somebody could show me the way.

Xcom 2 Complete is also on sale for $35 at Wal Mart Black Friday.

@ThatOneGuy is it possible to make the google sheet sortable?  I thought it was before but it doesn't seem to be that way anymore.

This is the guide to filter. If there is 100 concurrent users on the sheet, you may be getting the html version of the sheet. If that is the case, you wont be able to filter.
