Black Friday Deals

Recommended Posts

I heard that Sam's Club will be selling a Wii package on Black Friday that contains the game unit, 3 controllers, 3 Nun Chuks and 3 games for $224. Sounds like a pretty good deal!

Sounds like a dream, if it's legitimate that would be a great deal. However I doubt that would happen as the system still retails for $250, controllers are still $40 each and Nunchuks's are still $20 each. Grand total of $470 before taxes and that still doesn't include any games.

It has been confirmed that this promo was a price mistake and the correct price will be $425.

I've heard rumors of some great LCD TV deals coming this holiday season. I have wanted to upgrade for awhile now, this might be the best time to do it.

If you have any money left now is a great time to get alot of bang for your buck.

There are quite a few sites that have the Black Friday deals listed already. There are definitely some good deals to be had on TV's right now.

Best Buy will probably have the best deals, and they usually post the best of the best online right before. TV's often are the best deals, as well as some cheap laptops. The best deals will go very quickly, so you are talking starting a camp out around 10PM (depending on your location). Some of the less tempting but still good deals will be around all day (like the projection TV's). I camped out for my monitor, was a great deal 2 years ago, and prices are just now falling to the price I got it for (only the current model doesn't have TV inputs).

I remember Circuit City used to have all single CDs for $9.99 Ahhhhh- those were the days. I doubt they do that anymore since they are broke. Oh, and not many people buy CDs anymore

Just google Black Friday Ads 2008 and you will find various places that have a lot of ads listed. I started planning on where I'll be hitting this year. I know I want a 46 to 50" LCD or plasma for sure this year. It's my big spending spree for the year on that day. I get up at 3 and usually am home by 9 or so with a truck load of carp we don't need but fun to get.

Smart move. We went out last year for the first time on black Friday, headed out at 4:00 AM. They were already sold out of the advertised "good deals" and the people were nuts. We swore we'd never do that again.

I went out early ONE year for Black Friday deals. If I needed a $1000 tv or computer I might think about it....otherwise there isnt enough money in the world to get me back out in that mess.

Lines to the BACK of Menards. We're talking hours just to check-out. I'll be watching tv instead!

Screw it, I am going fishing. Who is with me?

Actually my buddy and I are planning to jump in the truck and drive north until we find ice we can walk on. Thursday night after the turkey nap I am trying to get a group of people to go to Pickle Park in Fridley. Girlfriend's brother's band is playing so it should be a fun couple of days.

I've only ever gone out once, and it was to [PoorWordUsage] Sporting Goods to get a Garmin etrex Legend Cx (color with map card capability) with case, cord, and Topo maps for the whole country for $150.00. Gave it to my dad that year.

Otherwise, I just let my wife and Mother-in-law go. They have done it for years, and she says she gets over half of her shopping done in about 4 hours. As long as I don't have to go, I don't care.

No, IPOD works, just had $10 in my pocket and wanted to get a CD for the wife, since I was buying PS3 games. Figured it would go over better when I tried to sneak the bag into the house. laugh

I bought Chinese Democracy the other day, but then, I have only been looking forward to that CD to come out for 13 or 14 years now.

Avoid the WII and get a decent game system. I got one last year and I am still waiting for them to release some decent games. Unless you like games like wii sports and lego whatever. The only good game thats come out has been the starwars one. Its good enough if your 7 but if you want more adult titles than hannah montana look elsewhere

I got a Wii and like it for what it is. FYI, Best Buy has an Xbox 360 with 60gb HDD and four games for $299. You can order them online tonight too. Acutally can get a lot of it ordered online if you just look at the stores.

I went out this morning and got myself a TV. went to wal-mart and got a 42" LCD for $598. It's a polaroid, so it's not as good as a sony, but I've wanted to upgrade for some time and the deal seemed pretty good!! I'm pretty excited! too bad the kids are home, so far all I've been able to see on it are Tom and Jerry and Dora!

that being said, I'll NEVER go out on black friday morning again!! that was nuts!!

That is nuts, every year it happens to a few people it seems, just my opinion, but it ain't worth it, wonder how long it took before someone decided to check on him

    • I have had great luck w/ my 3 yr old Big Horn. I have always said that the controller and hopper looked a lot like the Pit Boss       yeah... I'd say you've got options!
    • Actually I got a new 4 burner Char Grill with side burner this spring for up at the camper and a new cheaper 2 burner with side burner a week ago for at home, so alone with the new Char Grill smoker I got last year I have plenty of wienee cookers thanks.  😘  
    • what type of lenses? glass?
    • About 10 years ago I bought a boat that I had to track down a person that was not who I bought the boat from as they owned it many years before that!!!  But I am sure that I got the owners name from the DMV to then track down and had her sign a form, brought back to DMV, and then put into my name.  I am guessing things have changed as to how to get the name, but sounds silly to have to write a letter to get information that they could use proper discretion to give it to you or not.  Good Luck!
    • Traegers are super over-rated and over-priced for what they are. I would rather buy that big horn up above than a Traeger.    I'm fairly certain that Big Horn is just a Pit Boss. Louisiana smokers makes Pit Boss and a bunch of other stuff that other's put their own name on including PF's Cabela's model. I have a small Pit Boss that I am going to use for camping and I like it just fine. I bought that one from a friend for $50 but I'm sure that's still too much for Leech......
    • ok so story time...the one that got away but saw the fish.  I was ice fishing on Red when the eye fishing was still closed and we went out for an early season excursion about a mile out of Westwind.  It was Saturday evening when I my bobber shot down and the fight was on.  Now we were only in probably 5-7 ft of water if that but I "tired" the fish out where I was able to get it directly under the hole and all we could see was a monster northern head filling up the hole!!  No one would put there hand near that thing, let alone blindly through 2.5 ft of ice, so we just watched it for a minute or two float beneath the hole until I tried to turn it up the hole and the line just snapped when he decided he had had enough!!  That was painful not to touch but seeing it and knowing it was all of 44"+ was better than wondering.   Now to the not seen...Ice fishing Waukanabo by Leech in the deep hole on the north end and I see a mark on the bottom and I hook into it and could not budge it off the bottom.  I sat there for a few minutes with rod bent over trying to lift it with nothing but my line slowly moving away until pop it spit my lure!!!  I think the hole is over 40' deep and with 4lb test mono I guess as much as I applied pressure the hook wasn't in!!    What could have been~ so those are two stories that stick out in my mind and of the 2 the second stings more as I have no clue what it could have been and that runs through my mind but the northern as cool as it would have been to touch measure and what not, to see it and to know how massive it was, makes it "easier" to deal with. 
    • Sorry for the delayed response.    Checked in at the Lac Seul Resort on Wednesday, June 6, and checked out on Monday, June 11. Anticipating our usual needs, I preordered 200 dozen minnows and a pound of leeches from KA Sports & Tackle in Dryden for 10 guys to fish for 4-1/2 days.    This was the first time in 20 years that we actually had bait left over at the end. I gave away about 30 dozen minnows to a neighboring cabin because they didn't have any.    We found the morning bite to be slow for some reason but the evening bite was better. Most activity was found in moving water on the English River. On Friday evening another guy and myself went to Pelican Rapids and from 6:00pm till about 9:30pm we figured we boated over 200 walleyes and a few northnerns. Unfortunately, they were all between 15" - 17" in length and we were looking for the 17" - 18" size for the freezer. That's always our goal for fish we intend to take home.    The following night we went back and although the fish weren't biting quite as fast they were larger. Over the same time frame we figured we only boated about 100 walleyes but the size ranged more in the 17" - 22" size.    Overall we had a few walleyes caught in the 25" - 28" range with the largest of the week at 28.25". Northern pike were active with many caught in the 31" - 34" range. Didn't boat any in the 40" range as we usually do but those lower 30-inchers sure put up a fight.    Also found a few nice smallies and whitefish as usual.    Most fish were found in the 10' - 14' depth range, which was unusual compared to previous years when we caught them in shallow water along the shorelines.    Great weather with steady winds out of the southerly directions, which is what we always hope for but never get and nobody got hurt. Another successful year for us.
    • Seeing the fish is probably my preference since I would probably release it anyway. The only unfortunate thing would be not having a photo of it.
