What was your best Black Friday deal?

Post them up here.

We didn't have a big list this year. But we did get $14 DVD players at Menards. And the 2 pack of Wii games at Kmart yesterday.

I don't ride, I cook!

best deal was staying home
buying on the intarnit seems so much more fun than battling the lunatics in the mall parking lots.

Id be in those lots Buford T. Justice style..

I never did this black friday crap before, I like my sanity, but this year on my way to work stopped at Menards and picked up a 2K PSI pressure washer for $99. Was hoping they would have some discounts on snow throwers too, but no luck so will hold of on that for a bit.

I walked in to the store at 7:15 and it was a madhouse, it will have to be an insane deal for me to do it again.

+1 on staying in. Got some much needed R&R/late morning wake up.

I did score a $20 apc 350va UPS from staples. Free shipping too. Should be enough to run my modem, router, and alarm clock.

For those that didn't get the paper. Walgreens had some great deals on wrapping paper, and gift tags. Buy one get two free, it's all weekend. They also had candles, b1g2 free. There were some kitchen gadgets, griddles, and knock off magic bullets for $19.99 then a $10 rebate. Not a bad deal. They had a bunch of Christmas deco too. The inflatables 2 for $20. and light kits 2 for $30. Just a heads up, the sale papers are online too.

getting the day off of work to hang out with my family was my best deal....

In store only on the UPS? I've been looking for one.

I'm browsing GPS stuff online, but I did pick up some stuff at Radio Shack on my way to work:

PS3 Dual Shock controller : $29
Sandisk 8GB USB drive : $19
Sandisk 8GB SD card : $19

I bought an Xbox 360 at Target. Got the Pro for $299. The deal they had was to include a $60 gift card so XBox 360 basically cost $240.

Lots of deals on XBox stuff and Wii. Instead of $60 off, Blockbuster is giving a free wifi controller, 3 months of XBox live and 4 free rentals.

Me - I wanted the money back.

Slept in with my beloved... skipped the madness, and heading out tomorrow instead. We should still be able to find some good deals... plus, I drove past the mall and Best Buy on my way to work and they were PACKED.... crazy shoppers with strollers... ummm No thank you!


The real art of conversation is not only to say the right thing at the right time, but also to leave unsaid the wrong thing at the tempting moment.

Thanks, I just looked it up online through the item number. I need something for my TV/home theater/cable box for when the power goes out. I've had the power go out and come back on almost immediate and go back out. I'm sitting there watching all my stuff flicker and just thinking, this can't be good.

Good reviews on it too.
