Black Friday Ads - Wanna Peek?
« on: November 17, 2007, 12:37 PM »
Jeff told me about this site the other day that has info and pics on the majority of the Black Friday sales.  I found it rather interesting, but I felt a bit guilty as I've always just looked at the paper ads on Thanksgiving morning.

I didn't feel like going through 56 pages - so please merge this thread or what not.  Also, please excuse me if I've been living under a rock and everybody knows about this already.

Yikes. I shouldn't have looked.

Crikey ... 300 for 7 bucks?? And it's the 2-disc version to boot. And I paid $23 the week it came out. :P It's probably not worth getting up at the asscrack of dawn to get Knocked Up for 7 bucks when I could do the same at Circuit City for 9.

This looks promising though. I haven't picked it up yet, and $8 is quite reasonable.

There's a couple of good ones in this DVD list too.

Must ... close ... browser. Going broke ... just ... looking.... :'(

Oh come on.  People are waiting in line for a sale on Friday?  Through Thanksgiving?  ::)

Rock Band (new Guitar Hero-like video game) streets tomorrow.  That's probably what they're lining up for.

The only thing I picked up was the aforementioned Kid Rock Rock N Roll Jesus for 8 bucks at Best Buy. In and out in about five minutes.

I thought I read that AC/DC's Highway to Hell was going to be 5.99 at Circuit City, but that seems not to have been the case; or perhaps it was on sale last week and is no longer.

Both Best Buy and Circuit City had ****-tons of excellent deals on DVDs--2.99, 3.99, etc.--but (un?)fortunately I had the self-control not to burden my Visa any further. Ah well.

I hit WM first this morning and I pretty much owned all of their "cheap" DVDs so no sale for me.  I hit up Target afterwards with 2 bags full of DVDs/boxed sets - took me 5 minutes (in and out).  I tried to hit Circuit City & Best Buy, but the unoccupied tents left outside had me thinking twice so I just drove home with my Target bounty.  I refuse to find a good deal - how good it may be - if I have to wait in line for over an hour.

Thought I'd bump this thread since we're getting closer.....Keep checking back for updates to their site.  I'm sure there's others out there, but this one was nice to me last year.   :)

I'm eyeing a $60 BD player at Best Buy. I've been looking to get one here at school, so next Friday might be the time to do so.

I keep pondering a new laptop...  Best Buy had one this past weekend but sold through.  Each store only had 2, which sorta sucked.
