So its almost that time of the year and the ads for the Black Friday are starting to show up, lets make this the central place to keep them. If you find one, feel free to post and I will add it to the 1st post :)

<--- Internet shopping. I hate dealing with crowds. If I go to the mall it'll be to watch people.

My little sister drug me out.. We walked in to CC and the line to checkout was around the store... So I walked up to the Comcast internet terminal in the store.. went to Circuitcity.com.. they honored all the sales.. I bought my item and set it up for in-store pickup and left.. we came back that afternoon when it was less busy and picked my stuff up.. This was in Northwest Indiana.. I don't think most people knew how to use a computer :)

Did you guys hear about walmart threatening to sue etc for people pre-posting sale ad's?

http://www.news.com/Wal-Mart-plays-Black-Friday-spoilsport/2100-1038_3-6214722.html

I guess they one upped everyone and are now calling ad's "trade secrets" instead of just copywrited... I guess the penalties are much higher (think industrial espionage)

This is to funny...
They sent takedown notices from lawyers to all of the sites... except CNN!?! :) hah nice - Who lists their items up and ... They are crap.

The Wal-mart thing kills me, the year before they sent their ad to the website I listed above.

Wal-mart is the devil.

I like looking at this site. It already has a few on there:

I'm too lazy to go shopping that day. I thought about it to buy a tv from CC last year, but decided against it.

My little sister drug me out.. We walked in to CC and the line to checkout was around the store... So I walked up to the Comcast internet terminal in the store.. went to Circuitcity.com.. they honored all the sales.. I bought my item and set it up for in-store pickup and left.. we came back that afternoon when it was less busy and picked my stuff up.. This was in Northwest Indiana..

Does this work from home as well, or do you have to go in store to do it?

Depending on what you want to get it can be worth it. I picked up a nice HDTV 2 years ago for a song, because I got one of the 3 available. 2 years later its still about the same price.

It was about 15f and we waited in line for a few hours and camped with the rest of the people. Get a few friends together and grab a grill and beverages and some Turkey leftovers and have some fun :) Its much better "camping" with 5-6 people than by yourself (when you have to go to the bathroom you might as well go home). Heck some people brought the giant space heaters and used those. I also waited out one year when it rained a bit. Bike raingear works great, and everyone else leaves ;)

You know what guys?

You'd all benefit the economy by purchasing stuff year round. (plus, if time was money, and lets just say you and your lady's time was worth 25/hour, that means you're LOSING 50/hour waiting in line. Its just not worth it.

Forget black friday, stay in and have post-turkey day sex.

Then, go see a movie.

After the movie, go home and sleep off the rest of the turkey-sandwich-induced exhaustion.

When you wake up it will be saturday and time for FOOTBALL! :cheers:

So by your assumption, I'd be making money either way, so I might as well wait in line and save even more money. Yay for paid holidays!
