The best deal will be if I stay home and decorate the house for christmas and maybe take the bike out for a short ride.

Otherwise, I am thinking about replacing one of our CRT tvs (that we do not watch very often) with a LCD.

Kenmore dishwasher from Sears. Black. There are two models I am looking at. One is $349 and one is $399. I can't tell the difference.

And maybe a 42" LCD. Maybe.

I am not going for any doorbusters. I am going to buy online at either midnight or 4 am, whenever they show up on the site.

I bought a Kenmore Elite washer and dryer set last year (not a doorbuster) and they still aren't selling it for as low.

If you ain't with us, then it's just bad news.

All the deals you can get at the store friday you can easily get online as well and NOT have to deal with people or traffic. Also dont forget cyber monday. Tons of better deals on monday online only.

Nothing really worth it anymore. He whom has a TV, most likely does not need another. Heck, I'm surprised the GPS units are still going and selling..

Best buy is over kill. I stood in line once with friends. We had chairs, blankets and hot coffee, but even with all that it was hell.

I'd much rather pay few extra and order online.

And if you stand in the city, people cut in all the time, bring their friends and cousins later into the night when everyone's too tired to notice.

You better be nice to America or we will bring democracy to your country.

NEW YORK (Reuters) - The holiday shopping season got off to an ugly start as a shopper pepper-sprayed rivals in a battle for bargains and robbers shot shoppers to steal their Black Friday purchases, police said on Friday.

Up to 20 people were injured after a shopper used pepper spray in California to get an edge on rivals and in a second incident, off-duty officers in North Carolina used pepper spray to subdue rowdy shoppers waiting for consumer electronics.

In San Leandro, California, a man was in critical but stable condition after being shot by robbers in a parking lot outside a Walmart at 1:50 a.m. local time, Sergeant Mike Sobek said.

The man was in a group of men headed for their car after shopping when robbers confronted them and a fight ensued, Sobek said. The man's shopping companions held down one of the robbers until police arrived and took him into custody.

"It doesn't look like they got away with anything. They weren't expecting these guys to fight back," Sobek said.

In Los Angeles, authorities were reviewing security tapes to track down a Hispanic woman in her 30s who pepper-sprayed a crowd at a Walmart as customers swarmed for Xboxes on sale late Thursday, Los Angeles police Sergeant J. Valle said.

"They were opening a package to try to get some Xboxes from a crate and this lady pepper-sprayed a whole bunch of people in order to gain an advantage over the Xboxes," Valle said.

Firefighters treated and released up to 20 people injured in the incident at a Walmart in Northridge, California, authorities said. It was not known whether the woman actually purchased the Xboxes, Valle said.

Off-duty police officers working as security for a Walmart in Kinston, North Carolina, used pepper spray to keep shoppers at bay who were anxious for the midnight Thursday start of an electronics sale, authorities said.

The already "rowdy" atmosphere intensified when employees began to bring out palettes of electronics merchandise, Kinston director of public safety Bill Johnson said.

When customers tried to grab merchandise from the palettes before the sale time, the off-duty officers, who were hired as store security guards for the event, discharged pepper spray to restore order, Johnson said. One man was arrested for failing to follow officers' orders, he said.

China has to be laughing their ass off at how Americans that are trillions in debt to them are lining up at stores to buy all their shit they exported.
Ironic, the better that store sales are the more screwed up our economy gets.

Between my GF and I we got 2 46" tvs and 2 Xboxes at target. Most people were nice, there were a few asshats though. no pepper spray was needed.

Got some other assorted items, overall it was fun and it is something I do almost every year. Never had a really bad experience. But I can obviously see how anyone would not want to go out all day.

I had to go to lowes to get stuff for house projects, wasn't crowded at all. They did have an 18v dewalt drill with charger and case for either 89 or 99 I forget which but either way it's a huge bargain at about 50% off. They had tons of them and no one seemed interested. If I didnt already have a 14v dewalt I would have bought one

This wasn't the Naperville one was it? I talked to a guy at CompUSA and he said he was there when they opened the doors. Guess he saw some lady bring her grandkids and bricks in her purse. She was hitting people with them and she had her 8 grandkids knocking people over to get items. When the cops came she nailed the cop with a brick and got arrested. This dude claims he watched it all happen.

Gift cards FTW. That way the people you give them to can take advantage of after-Christmas sales (and if you buy the gift cards through a school, church, or other organization participating in a "Manna" program, they get a percentage).

IMO gift cards FTL. I hate spending them, I hate getting them. Many times they end up being difficult to use, and other times the companies go under or no longer accept them. Plus they are too impersonal and completely go against the spirit of a gift in the first place.

I'm with ya. Eddie Bauer had 40% off everything on Friday. I called Wednesday, asked if they could put some stuff on hold for me, and then after sleeping in Friday, I mosied-in just before noon and picked up my stuff. Could only be easier if you buy online (but I wanted to try the sizing one last time to make sure it was correct, thus the in store purchase + it was only 30% off online).
