This is an even better method than traveling cross-country by bus to let everyone know you don't have anywhere important to be for a long, long time.

Right, but local news stations won't put you on the tee vee if you contact them to say you're going to buy a television online.

sigdiamond2000: If you ever find yourself camping out overnight to buy something that isn't absolutely necessary for your survival, just kill yourself. You obviously have nothing to live for anyway.


I camped out for the US PS2 launch, but only overnight. It was known that it was not going to be available for at least a week after that initial sale due to not enough being made. Also, I had reasons for getting a day one PS2 beyond merely playing games.

But waiting a week just to get a slightly lower price? Ridiculous.
 
2012-11-16 03:18:17 PM
So - how much are you ACTUALLY going to save, not spend mind you, but SAVE off the regular price

Regular price TV let's say $750 and they are offering 33% off - so it is $500 and you save $250. So you plan to wait in line for 168 hours to save $250, that is a great use of your time. Not to mention the expense of being there, driving back and forth to the house as you switch out with friends etc. Probably costs out weigh the "savings"

Not sure about everyone else but we have like 5 TV's hooked up to cable, some flat some older, and like 3 or 4 not being used, not wanting to wait in line for stuff

Some time before opening, Best Buy sends an employee to walk down the line and offers each person up to 2 tickets for doorbuster items of their choice. To clarify, a ticket is for a specific doorbuster item (e.g. maybe you are there for the TV that's half price, another guy wants a ticket for the cheap laptop, you would receive different tickets).

The doorbuster items are not on shelves but instead must be claimed at a special booth by showing your ticket. Mobbing the front door at opening time won't do you any good because you don't have any tickets for the good prices.

Despite what you're reading here in this thread, most stores do genuinely have 1 or 2 deals that are truly exceptional, and I would totally consider such deals if there was 0 hassle involved. But it's not 0 hassle, it's more like near-infinite hassle, so I do not shop on Black Friday. Though if you wait until the middle of the afternoon, it's just like any other day of the Christmas shopping season - crowded but bearable with no significant deals to be had.

I don't see the problem. "Give thanks for what we already have" usually means excessive over-consumption of food & alcohol for most people. Extending it a day to over-consume shelved goods seems to entirely fit the spirit of the holiday.

I just cannot imagine ever waiting in line for days to buy a product that wasn't life sustaining.

And screw going to the mall / stores near the holidays. Internet shopping FTW.

At this point in our family buying gifts is kind of dumb. Everyone is older and has $$ so if they really want something they buy it themselves. It basically comes down to exchanging booze and gift cards (which is fine by me). It is more rewarding just getting everyone together for laughs and some food.

antidumbass: Occupy Best Buy!
consume consume consume consume consume consume consume consume rinse & repeat

The best comment I've heard this year about Thanksgiving is that it's, for many or some, the one day out of a year we actually give thanks for what we already have. Then, the very next day it's an all-out brawl for shelved goods. Is there something wrong here?
My girlfriend and I will be celebrating Buy Nothing Day. Her brother is dropping in, the one who wasn't invited to a large/ expensive family member wedding because he's gay. We plan on making this a quiet and fun occasion with excellent food and storytelling. I honestly wish everyone here time better spent.


Our Thanksgiving agenda: hiking, stuffing face with friends, board games. Very different from our normal turkey day: usually there's enough accumulation for snowshoeing.

But seriously, I see no reason to go out with a food coma and interact with the worst behaviors of humanity. I'm going to stay home and sleep it off, boycotts and such are irrelevant.

Myria: sigdiamond2000: If you ever find yourself camping out overnight to buy something that isn't absolutely necessary for your survival, just kill yourself. You obviously have nothing to live for anyway.

I camped out for the US PS2 launch, but only overnight. It was known that it was not going to be available for at least a week after that initial sale due to not enough being made. Also, I had reasons for getting a day one PS2 beyond merely playing games.

But waiting a week just to get a slightly lower price? Ridiculous.


I camped out for the Xbox 360 launch. Then I sold it the next day for $700 and used the money to basically get a free one a few weeks later.

This. Last Christmas I grabbed a 55" Samsung 8000 series LED backlit LCD from Amazon for $1850 plus tax. Best Buy didn't have it for anywhere close to that price.

F----k that's and excellentprice.

That cost me $2200 (but I got the blue ray, 4 g;lasses and some movies) in Oct 2011

Awesome TV!

Shopping with a bunch of cut throat bargain hunters who'd just as soon gut you like a fish if it meant they could get that extra 25% off whatever gift they've really been looking for is a social activity now?

Not me. I always spend the day after Thanksgiving trying to murder Bambi. Deer season only lasts 9 days, and it happens to always fall over Thanksgiving. My wife gave up trying to get me to do anything else a long time ago.

Oh, let them stay. They have nothing else in their lives at this point. You just took away the only thing that was going to give them purpose and meaning for the entire year. The thought of getting a TV for $75 instead of $115 has sustained these stupid fools for MONTHS...and you just took that away from them. Now what do they possibly have to live for? Nothing, that's what. They might just as well go home and kill themselves as live in a world where they might have to wait till the week before Christmas to get such a good deal again, or do a little extra online shopping.

You heartless bastards.

"Last year, I came on Tuesday and I was 17th in line," she said. "They only had 15 TVs."

Most of these Black Friday shenanigans would disappear if retailers were required to issue rain checks at the advertised sales price when their stock runs out. People would feel less inclined to line up days in advance in anticipation of limited stock and stores would probably be less inclined to use such pricing trickery to get people into stores.

You could spend a week begging on street corners and end up with a ton more cash than you're going to "save" on Black Friday deals. Of course, you'd have to have an IQ above single digits to realize it, so there's that.

I would let them camp out for six days, then call the cops and have them removed Thursday night.

Just for fun, let's say they are a little cheaper. Let's even say $100 cheaper. Is that worth a week of sitting on your fat ass? That's just completely pathetic. If you're that poor, you don't need a farking large TV anyway.

The extra $220 is worth the 5 days not spent in line, the reduced chance of being trampled, stabbed, shot, or being upsold an extended warranty.

Besides, you're totally going to be one of the people to get the *Two TVs per location at this price. , right?

I was just pointing out that $179 for that TV is ridiculously cheap and way lower than "Amazons (sic) normal prices".

I've had a CRT tv and a CRT PC monitor that were both flat screen. They did cost more than rounded screen monitors/tvs at the time, and honestly, the picture wasn't all that much better.

Obviously they DO NOT HAVE JOBS, so where is their money to purchase items
coming from? From the photo, you can rule out prostitution, so my guess is it
is coming from welfare, food stamp fraud, child support fraud and on and on.

Hey, don't be so quick to judge. Maybe they are this fat and sedentary on purpose and are harvesting said fat to make soap a la "Fight Club". Do you begrudge these women their soap empire? Are you mad that you cannot drink the 3 quarts of sour cream and eat the 3 pounds of cheese you would need to daily to be like these women? These women are the epitome of Republican ideals. They are as bootstrappy as they come and have figured out a way to do their job and sit in line at the same time. You can even see the cooler of sour cream, cheese and buttermilk set aside for that day. Don't deny their ingenuity. You see, we have no way of knowing that sitting on their fat asses doing fark all isn't their job in the first place. I mean the fat ain't gonna make itself.....

Dude was a violent rapist, got caught, went to prison, and then was shanked by another inmate, leaving him a quadriplegic. Supposedly the guy was a complete coont.
