    The "cheaper" A Christmas Story is most likely the older non-SE version, and it's doubtful the SE version would be included in the 2-for special when the stores want to move out the old inventory (non-SE version).

    Anyone know if you can PriceMatch Black Friday deals?

    i.e. I want to get a $79 GameCube from WalMart, and yes my mom who routinely wakes up at 5am is going to get my ass up out of bed to make it to WalMart by 6am to try and score one, but if WM is out of stock, do you think Circuit City would honor the ad?

    Doubt it. Most price match policies state something to the effect that they won't match "special, one-time deals." I'd think black friday sales probably fall under that criteria.

    Anyone know if you can PriceMatch Black Friday deals?
    ------------------------------------------------------------

    Absoultly! I did this last two years at BestBuy. Here is the catch. You must pricematch during the sales times and while the item are "in stock".

    I simply waiting in line a BestBuy, grabbed everything I needed and pricematched at the checkout. The CSR is way to busy to call another store for an inventory check. Out of the store by 6:45 will all my DVDs.

    I have already checked on the DVD players. Each store is carring a different APEX model number so no price match. [​IMG]

    GOOD LUCK!!

    The Radeon 9800 for $199.99 from Microcenter looks very good, assuming its the 128MB but still...

    Also it says $9.99 for any non box-set DVD, anybody have any experience with Microcenter locations, through their web-site no DVDs are listed that I am aware of.

    Damn, I wish I had $1000 right now. Looks like HD will have to wait until next year.

    I picked up two of the lite-on DVD +/-RW drives from office depot on Tuesday. The manager told me I should come back to get a price match on Friday because there is a rebate and sale on the item.

    Microcenter only carries a limited supply of dvds. Mainly the current big sellers, I don't expect they sell online since their stock is limited. Similar to how Compusa used to do it before they expanded to have a home theater/electronics section.

    Has anyone ever bought something in advance at Best Buy knowing it was going to be on sale Friday and then go in on Friday to have the price adjusted? Or would they only do it if still in stock? I assume the Norton software will be a combination of the $30 upgrade rebate from Symantec and a combination of instant rebate and best buy rebate. I was tempted to buy one today to guarantee getting it and ask for the price discount/rebate form on Friday.

    Can this be accurate?

    Of all the Black Friday DVDs listed (and there are indeed some solid deals) the only one I'd like to pick up is Chicago.

    (I'll ask one of the "shoppers" in my family to pick it up for me.) [​IMG]
