    Is it just me or do the deals this year totally suck?

    I see a 1TB External Hard-drive that might want to pick up from Staples for $49.99 but that's about it.

    Not a lot of incentive for me to wake up early this year.

    Also - when did Walmart start opening at midnight?

    Most Wal-Marts are 24/7 nowadays so that's not all that special.

    Depends on where you go for the deals. Most stores mainly stick to certain things when it comes to the real good deals, Walmart has a good deal on Blu-rays. Some are $5 and some are $10, that's pretty good considering a number of them are still $20-30 normally.

    While I no longer work retail, I want anyone who lines up at any store before dawn to know that I hate them. :yay:

    The 2 TB is a desktop hard-drive. what's the difference between that vs. a portable one?

    I've been thinking about doing some online shopping, but I can't for the life of me think of anything I want to buy right now.

    I'm at JCPenny's website, shopping for a beanie and some thermal shirts. I'm getting about $80 worth of crap for less than $30.

    try the promo code GOOD2GO before you check out and see if it'll give you a discount.

    or go to retailmenot.com and see if you can find any good ones

    i just bought 2 or 3 shirts from Kohls and found a code on there to save an extra 20%

    Target has things I want, but they are "in-store" sales only. To hell with that, no way am I venturing to the store tomorrow.

    *checks the time*

    Well. I guess anyone who's going shopping on Black Friday is already standing in line.

    I still work retail, so I approve this post.

    Black Friday, and the entire attitude behind it, is an incredibly evil invention of capitalist society.

    Saw a cool deal for a PS3, if you buy it, you get God of War 1-3 along with it.

    I just cannot get behind the mentality of standing outside in the cold for 5+ hours just to buy 1 or 2 items for a slight discount.
