Black Friday I Wanna Know

So, if I have something that I really want to get for my girl for Xmas cheap... and it's at Best Buy starting at 5:00a.m. Friday.
What time do you think I would have to be there to beat the other crazies to it?

Ideas?

Holy crap! You are far better than me. Online shopping all the way baby! Good luck!

Oh I would say be there for 4:59am and then shout "Doctor on call, let me through, medical emergency". Trust me, it always works ;)
Happy Thanksgiving from Northern Ireland.

I don't know....I don't agree with the other crazies getting there at 11:59 and camping out. I'd say at least 2 hrs earlier....I don't know if it's worth waiting for. Best Buy isn't great for keeping stuff in stock and they love bait and switch. I was interested in a LCD TV (1/2 price) at a computer store...but just the thought of camping out for a tv in chicago cold...with a 4 mo old at home or in the car isn't worth it...for me.
good luck.....just check online to make sure it really is a super deal.

Does Best Buy sell online? If not, I'd say definitely by 3:30 - 4:00 a.m. Happy Thanksgiving! :)

Oh my . . .I did the Black Friday shopping once and my DH and I said, "Never again!!"
Did you end up going out, and did you get the present you needed??

Well.. what happened? I have always heard they only mark down a few of the prime objects to lure people in - so I've never shopped in store on black friday. I just.. I don't know what I do!!

So what you do? did you get it?

For the first time EVER I went shopping on Black Friday. I got up at 4:30 and was in the store at 5:15am. There wasn't anything REAL big that I wanted. Mostly was just interested in some of the doorbuster sales. I got most everything I was wanting to get.

It's official. You are all insane!

Can't see the point of largeing it up on a big party day/night then trooping off to the shops on a bellyful of food and beer.

Much prefer a good old fashioned hangover instead.

Hope Thanksgiving was all you wanted it to be! Best from Brussels
