Those who have been setting up tents and such, are in a very sad kind of thinking. The retailers pay good money to have their advertisers run all of the hype and what do these shoppers do?? They run or I should say, practically smash the doors down to get to the few items they have advertised. If they want other shoppers out of their way, they run over them. So much for the so called 'Christmassy Feeling" of brotherhood?? It's all out the window due to greed and misconception...the holiday is about greed, save your money people. And find out how this holiday got it's start.

The deals that are out there for TV's don't interest me. I'll be buying clothes and other household items on sale on Black Friday

I can buy electronics at better times of the year and I don't need game bundles or games systems as I stop playing the buy and spend game.

only idiots spend weeks just to be the first in line to get something (whether it be new or the "best" price.

and then we are to feel sorry for them (at thanksgiving) because they are missing turkey dinner...

boo hoo boo hoo...

 

just like these ingrates who are complaining that they have work on thanksgiving....

boo hoo boo hoo.....you chose to work in this line of work and if you don't like...get a job where you don't have to work holidays or make other arrangements to have the meal some other day.

 

my sister has worked as a nurse for over 30 years and she has to work holidays, etc....so we just make other arrangements....and NOT ONCE has she complained about working the holidays because it's part of her job.....

 

so you whiney little babies who want your holidays off...GET ANOTHER JOB!!! or are you too stupid to think of that??????

The writer made a mistake on the KMart 32in TV deal.  The $88 deal is for 19in TV.  32in TV is $229.  The other deals had a picture of the actual flyer, but this deal doesn't.  That's why -- because it doesn't exist.

 

 I guess when it comes to web posting, they don't go through the rigorous editing and fact checking process as the newspaper or TV programs.

The Toshiba deal is wrong as it shows here. I had a long phone conversation with Amazon a short while ago and was directed to the terms and conditions page for price matching. Two lines stood out to affirm this policy about store vs. online pricing.
"#6. Time-limited sales events (such as Black Friday, "early bird" or "door buster" offers ), offers advertised as limited in time or quantity, clearance, liquidation and going-out-of business sales, and loyalty program offers are also ineligible for the Guarantee." and
 "#10. The Guarantee applies to websites only, not brick-and-mortar stores."

My wife and I MADE most of the gifts we will be giving this year. We garden, and make homemade salsa's, wine, BBQ sauces and spices. Our family and friends would much rather receive something  personal. The bastardizing of every holiday by corporate America has to stop. SAY NO, STAY HOME FRIDAY!!! Better yet, take your kids hunting.

i don't see the proscan at kmart on their black friday ad for $97 and amazon won't match that price anyway.

Price match guarantee does not apply at Amazon.com because this TV is a "doorbuster" item that is not covered at Amazon. So this price on the Toshiba is good only at Best Buy (for those interested).

Black Friday = Corporate America doing what it does best. Convincing YOU that you just HAVE to run out and blow your paycheck on those worthless, bull$hit products. Have fun....I will be nice and cozy in bed.
