    I am definitely not standing in line, but I will come later in the morning to scavenge on remains Mr Green

    I heard there going to be very good deals on HDTV's this season as the prices came down significantly over the past 2 years. Good luck to those of you who have the nerve to face the crowds

      Last year there were several HDTV's left over at several places here. BUT at 11am when the door buster sale was over they raised the prices back, so get there before 11am!

    I have to work. I probably wouldn't go out anyway. Whatever happened to all the free after rebates deals? I remember coming home from places like office max with hundreds of dollars worth of essentially free stuff.

    Wow, I LOVE Black Friday! I love the crowds, waiting in lines, the fights, the craziness, ALL Of it and YES I am serious! Big Grin

    I plan on starting about midnight at Walmart and working my way to Target at 4am and then possibly Bass Pro Shop at 8am! I am basically going for toys and clothes for my kids, maybe some video games. Target the only thing that really pops out to me is the Tag Reader and then there is a locking metal gun cabinet at Bass Pro and you get a free locking pistol safe too and I want to get my husband that. If I had the financial means I would go all night and day on black Friday.

      You never know...There could be a flash mob in the midst of the night somewhere near you. That would be an interesting view for sure. Big Grin

      Best Buy: Playstation 3 160GB Console with Little Big Planet, MadNation Racin and Cars Blu Ray - $299.99

      Target: Playstation 3 160GB Console with The Force Unleashed 2 and Prince of Persia Blu Ray - $299.99

      Walmart: Playstation 3 160GB Console with Among Theives and Medal of Honor

      I know I saw a deal somewhere where you get a PS3 160GB and the new MOVE controllers for $399.99, but I can't remember where.

      Also, as a gamer, Xbox 360 is the better system, just like Verizon and AT&T, AT&T may have the iPhone (for now) but it is all about the network, which Xbox Live is the clear winner.

    I don't do Black Friday. I did it one year & that was enough for me.

    Good luck to those who go. Hope you get some great deals!

    I thought pre-Black Friday was supposed to be better than Black Friday this year.

    Haven't heard. My husband will go out on Black Friday but I stay by my computer. No place for people on scooters in that crowd! What I'm going to get is some rest and to sleep in past 7am!

    It was 2 years ago, on Black Friday 2008, that the Walmart employee was killed. He was trampled when a mob of shoppers smashed through the Long Island store's front doors, and they also injured 4 shoppers.
