#14077637 Black Friday 2018 - The Big Thread | See You Next Year!

Video Games have been uploaded to my spreadsheet for Best Buy.

 

I will get to the movies tomorrow after I get home from work. It is currently 3AM and need to get some sleep, haha.

Just completed compiling the Walmart ad (except some spine only games are missing that I couldn't make out for the life of me). If the links from the ad start working, please let me know! It only shows the list for $35 games right now when I click on any of the panels.

Meijer's ad has been added to the spreadsheet.

 

Edit: I also didn't mark both platforms of a game shown on sale for Meijer's as they show Shadow of the Tomb Raider at 2 different price points.

My yearly spreadsheet is now being worked on. This doesn't have much on it, yet, but I will post when I have completed a store set. There is also the change log tab to see what my current activity regarding the sheet is.

 

As a "lessons learned" from last year, I will be putting the spreadsheet into a drop box link for those who want to export it to their program of choice, when it comes closer to Black Friday.

 

As always, I will be the one controlling the sheet, so if you see something incorrect, please message me on here! I will get to your message as soon as I can!

 

The sheet, like last year's, will NOT contain Amazon deals. This is due to Amazon time gating prices behind lightning deals.

Best deal of Black Friday 2017 for me was at Office Depot.  They are giving away a 1 year McAfee Livesafe subscription with any purchase in-store while supplies last.  I bought a $10 Google Play gift card to get the deal since I couldn't find anything else to buy from that store.  Those subscriptions are expensive as hell otherwise ($89.99), and it was perfect since no one shops at Office Depot.


The irony is McAfee is a virus itself.

Walmart is not fully live. Many games have not drop. Very selective for online. Last year everything was up for grabs...

This statement is not true. This is the exact same thing that happened last year. Walmart delists themselves as the sellers of the games online to force you into the stores. The listings you see up is apparently from '3rd party' sellers, which is why they are not on sale.

Hey everyone,

 

Today during my stream I took the time to explain the spreadsheet and some of the issues you may face. Also, I give some of tips and personal speculation for this Black Friday season. Hopefully this helps someone out there.

I see in the first spreadsheet that Rainbow Six Siege Year 2 is gonna be $19 at Walmart but in the advert I only see a picture of the base game. Can anyone else confirm that the year 2 edition will be on sale for $19? ty

Looked at the ad again - You are correct. It is just the Base Game. Have corrected the price.

how do you dl the Google spreadsheet so I can see it on my own spreadsheet software (Libre Office).

Make sure you are not in HTML view. It will have either 'html' or 'edit' in the URL near the end. Make sure it says 'edit'. Keep trying to use the link in OP until it works. You will get switched to HTML view when the sheet becomes too congested with traffic.

 

Under the title of the spreadsheet, for example mine says U.S. Black Friday 2017 Spreadsheet, you will see File Edit View Data Tools and Help all lit up. Click on File and the look for Download as >. Mouse over that and you should see a bunch of file formats that you can download the sheet as so you can import it into other spreadsheet software.

My ass hurts from sitting down and i'm getting hungry

 

I just ordered chinese food to cover the hunger issue. . . I would recommend a pillow for your butt. You may want to check for a new chair this Black Friday. ;)

Hey guys,

 

I have done a visual step by step guide on how to create personal view filters. Some of you may already know this, so this is old hat. Others may be grateful as my sheet has a lot of intentional visual repetitiveness.

Man that 4k movie list looks so sad. lol


It's a bit larger than last year! So there is that! Still sad that there are so many DvDs and they are similar prices to blu rays now.

I will be posting instructions on how to filter the spreadsheet I have created in the near future. This is one of the reasons games are listed multiple times, 1 version for each platform.

The other reason is because Wal-Mart doesn't always put the same game on an alternate platform on sale as the one listed, unless the ad specifically states in some way.

Stay tuned to learning how to make the list more manageable in the future!

anyone remember if walmart's prices go live online before best buys? if im not best buy elite. hoping to try for tekken at walmart and maybe spiderman homecoming. but if i strike out i can add them to my order on best buy for slightly more.

Walmart didn't have any of the games for the price in the ad available online, I remember. Had to go to the store to get Zelda and Pikmin 3.

 

Also, see my signature for my spreadsheet of deals. (Work in Progress. I just finished doing Target's deals tonight.)
