Jument: If times are hard, you should not be dropping $500 on a goddamn TV.
factoryconnection: Maybe she hates the ever-loving sh*t out of her spouse, or her whole family and is willing to skip not only Thanksgiving but the whole f*cking week to show it.Maybe she's homeless and this is one of the few times of the year that one can camp out in public, have a few conversations with passers-by and not get truncheon time with the local PD.
MadSkillz: Have any of you bought a TV online? Are there concerns with the shipping, because they are fairly delicate?
DeathCipris: That biatch needs to DIAF. She's what's wrong with this bullshiat stores opening on thanksgiving.
netcentric: DeathCipris: That biatch needs to DIAF. She's what's wrong with this bullshiat stores opening on thanksgiving.No problem. At UPS during the Christmas rush, things move super smooth. There are no huge jams on the belts that crush boxes clear to the ceilings. And if there is a jam, the packages can be kicked over the edge of the belt to be handled later.If the package is packed well in a sturdy box, it should be ok. IE: if you can back your car over it a couple times
Yanks_RSJ: Ordered a Samsung LCD almost 5 years ago from Amazon, not one issue at all.
Benevolent Misanthrope: "It's excellent that they have sales, especially on electronics, because they're expensive and times are hard," Perpignan said Tuesday night as she took shelter from the rain inside the Bethlehem Township, Pa., store. "A lot of stores are going out of their way to cater to their customers."Yeah. Times are so hard, you can't even afford BestBuy normal markups on a 55" TV for your kid.Oh, however do you persevere?
ChipNASA: MadSkillz: Have any of you bought a TV online? Are there concerns with the shipping, because they are fairly delicate?Nah, never had any problems....Trust me.

jenmc226: The poster above beat me to my point. If she got off her ass and actually worked 72 hours she'd make out more than the $500 she's going to save. It just shows you that there's a growing trend of people choosing to be fat and lazy and live in squalor than have to put forth any sort of effort. Hell she parked at Best Buy - they hire seasonal employees to deal with the shopping rushes. Why doesn't she walk in and get an application for employment? She might even then get an employee discount!! She'll still be at Best Buy. She'll still come out ahead financially. She'll get more exercise than sitting in the lawn chair and be a lot warmer and dryer.
Billy Bathsalt: This points out the flaw in trickle-down theories. This lady is spending three week's pay on a ridiculous TV, where a 1%-er is making that much in five seconds, and sending it to a tax haven in the Caribbean.
kling_klang_bed: I find it mildly ironic that Best Buy, Walmart, etc. will happily let these putzes camp out front for days or weeks on end, yet they'll kick a homeless person who has to sleep out front off the property.Awwwwwwwwww, American values!!!
LemSkroob: I've also heard rumors that the equipment that is sold on Black Friday as doorbusters are usually made with lower-quality components than the standard models. Dont know if that is true or not, but I wouldn't put it past them.
untaken_name: LemSkroob: I've also heard rumors that the equipment that is sold on Black Friday as doorbusters are usually made with lower-quality components than the standard models. Dont know if that is true or not, but I wouldn't put it past them.That seems like it would cost more to implement that you'd save. I would guess that the doorbusters are usually just the lowest rank of whatever kind of item they are. The shiatty ones, basically. They're always shiatty, just on black friday they're slightly cheaper than usual.
dabbletech: Since when do we let the poors watch television?
armageddonbound: The people who say she shouldnt buy a tv if times are hard are idiots. What is she going to do instead? Invest that 500 dollars in some mutual funds? Think before you speak. That tv could provide thousands of hours of entertainment.Could she work instead of sitting there for three days? Maybe she has the days off from work, and doesnt have the option of working those days. Either way its none of your farking business.
