I see other BF threads, but not related to this.

I did absolutely no camping. I arrived at my local best buy at 5:00 AM. The line was a MONSTER!! I still got in fairly quickly. At the best buy I got:
-Portable 10.2' DVD Player ($139)
-Flight Sim. X ($25)
-2 DVDs (My brother got them, but they were cheap)

After this, I went to Staples. I arrived about 5 minutes before it opened. I got in the monster of a line there too. Tons of people were there, but I had no trouble getting everything I planned on getting. I got:
-20 Inch wide screen Samsung LCD, 205 BW ($179)
-Some all in one color printer ($39)
-1 GB flash drive ($7)
-Huge spindle of DVD-R's ($2)
-200 GB HD ($20)!!!
-Nice computer chair (~$59)
-5 phone set (I forget how much. It was orginallyt marked over $100, and it was MUCH less)


I got almost everything I planned on getting. I just could not believe how big the lines were!

How was your BF? And what did you get?

I picked up the 22" WS monitor at Best Buy,.... $200.


Well, I had a co-worker pick it up for me.

I gave her $240 to cover the tax and let her pocket the rest as her "fee".

My Staples only had the 19" widescreen monitor, so I got that and it's pretty good. Only had to wait in line for 45 min compared to 8+ hours at Best Buy. For $130 it's not too bad.

I also did no camping. I got 2 of the 2GB MP3 players with rechargable battery at Target for $64 each. My parents each wanted one, so that was perfect.

My dad bought the 32" television at walmart for $600. We refused to camp out best buy

I'm buying the costco 32" set right now

face it....they probably hit the mall. When I went, almost every store had a "everything at **% off" sale. This means they possibly wont be home till much later. Take this time to relax;)

Yeah relax now, or you could watch your bank account dwindle.

Days like this you need a real time "charge ticker" that you can pull up online and see how bad your credit card is getting beat up.

Some $20 dress shirts from Express. Wife bought a few clothes.

Drove by 3 best buys last night on the way to Ashley's Furniture (25% off sale) and saw the lines completely wrapped around the best buy and decided the laptops could wait. People are stupid.

I'm posting from my new Gateway laptop from Best Buy. I got there at 6 PM yesterday, yet was still 38th in line. I thought I still had a chance for the HP core solo, so I stayed. Unfortunately they didn't have nearly enough, only 12, so the vouchers didn't even get close to me.

I went late and didn't get anything really :(

Went to CC to pick up a digital camcorder and some how ended up with a GR-D370 with horrible reviews. I did get the FAR minDV tapes, but no good since this camcorder is going back. The zr500 was much better from Dell.
