Black Friday Strategy

submitted on November 18, 2009 by phunkeey in "Sales / Promotions"
Walmart and several other stores are price matching printed ads on Black Friday for identical items.

This might be the best strategy for getting bargains.

list of stores:

Home Depot

Lowe's

Office Depot

OfficeMax

    FYI I still don't know how adding tags to discussions works.

      When I type a tag and try to add it, it doesn't work. So I'm forced to scroll down and pick one.

      It may have worked occasionally and that is what is puzzling.

    No Target and BestBuy in your list. Why?

      According to my sources, target only matches the target.com price:

      "Although Target purports to match prices per its "Low Price Promise", a Target spokesperson told us that Target will not match "any deals deemed special", thus excluding Black Friday"

      And best buy doesn't price match.

      Anyone with other info?

    Here is target's policy:

    http://sites.target.com/site/e.....P04-040400

    So I'm not even sure if they'll match target.com

    Best Buy's policy specifically excludes Black Friday:

    ". . . the guarantee does not apply to. . . items for sale Thanksgiving day through the Saturday after Thanksgiving."

    Boo Best Buy.
