Anyone have any sights to go to yet? I just saw on my local news that some website's already have the sales posted but I missed the part where they gave the web addresses. Wal-Mart & Radio Shack reported that the sale prices on the website's were correct for their upcoming sale. Thanks.

There was already a post on here that I believe got pulled because it is against HTF's policy to post the prices before the ads are out...that is why the weekly round-up prices don't get posted until 12am Sunday (midnight Saturday night).

Bill - try this site

They encountered some legal trouble from K-Mart and Sears for posting prices early so they invented new names for them:

Thanks Patrick, those illustrations are hilarious! Posted Image

I was kind of hoping that considering the X-Box is coming out soon, maybe the original X-Box would drop for just this weekend and also San Andreas may drop as well.

Based on commercials/online ads, I would say it's Wal-Mart.

Target has officially released their Black Friday ad online:

Gregg; Here's what the site listed in Post #3 has to say on that subject:

Quote:
I touched on this yesterday and got a lot of varying feedback. There was no distinct yes/no answer.

The question is, "What is the price for the Wal*Mart laptop?" The followup question being, "Will Wal*Mart price-match other Wal*Mart locations?"

We have no concrete answer. In normal circumstances, Wal*Mart does not price-match their other locations, but Black Friday is not a normal circumstance. Pepole have told me that corporate wants the laptop to be $378/$388 nationally.

Here's how you find out what the price is for your retail location. Go to the Wal*Mart Circular Finder, look at the price, if it is higher than the $378, call your local Wal*Mart store and confirm the price.

This is the only way to confirm what the price of the laptop will be come Friday.

There's Jessie the yodeling cowgirl. Bullseye, he's Woody's horse. Pete the old prospector. And, Woody, the man himself.Of course, it's time for Woody's RoundUp. He's the very best! He's the rootinest, tootinest cowboy in the wild, wild west!

Sounds like Wal-Mart in New England...where they have no competition.

In any case it also says "limit 1 per customer," so take a friend to buy the second.

As far as the Wal-Mart dvds go (Minority Report, Road to Perdition, etc.), I think they are more than likely going to be the pan-and-scan versions. Can't remember the last time I saw widescreen versions of those titles at Wal-Mart.

BestBuy is already taking online orders at the sale prices. I just ordered 24-SEASON 2 and SEASON 3 (WS) for $19.99 each. I had to pay $3.38 S/H and $3.10 in tax, but it's still a pretty good buy.

Thanks!!!!!

I owe you one. I would not be able to make it to BB tomorrow because I'll be on an airplane so I thank you!

I ordered online. Basically at $70, I was able to buy all 3 seasons for the price of 2(used) and they are brand spanking new.

Where will be the best place to buy a USB drive, perferably 2 gigs, but could get by with 1?

bestbuy has the PNY for 39.95.

Any online vendors with killer prices? (Best buy is 80 miles from me).

The weird thing about the Walmart laptop is that the local flyer, when viewed online says 379, but the mailed flyer to my home says 488. I have already made a copy of the online price to take in tomorrow (at 5 AM Posted Image )
