What do I do if I go alone to camp out?: Make friends in line, by making friends in line your whole experience becomes enjoyable. Need to go to the bathroom? New line friends will hold your spot. Hungry? New line friends will hold your spot, in some cases they'll even offer to get you food when they go. Most importantly, camped out with a chair and other gear? Those new line friends will hold your spot at the all crucial last half hour before the doors open time so that you can put your stuff back in your car.
Essential gear for camping out doorbuster deals: (since you're likely to be there 10+hours)
1) Warm clothes, layered.
2) Folding chair
3) Assorted snack stuffs or full meals if alone
4) Deck of cards or other small means of entertainment to make friends in line
5) MP3 Player for stretches where no one wants to interact
6) Reading material, again for stretches where no one wants to interact
7) Blaket(s) for colder climates where warm clothes don't suffice
8) A good thermos mug to keep drinks hot as the camp out wears on.
9) A few pens/markers/pencils. You wouldn't believe how many times people are looking for these
10) Flyers, flyers, flyers. Useful for you, but also another great way to solidify line unity by lending them out and mentally indebting others to you.
This happened last year and not sure if it usually happens. Last year word got out that Walmart registers gave the discount price before the videogame sale started. A group of friends and I simply walked to the game section (we first were denied at one Walmart though), picked out our games, paid for the discount price and walked out. Got the games for the BF price about 3 hours before it was suppose to happen.
Wondering, does this normally happen at Walmart during BF or was it just a BF 2012 mistake on Walmart's part.
What's the consensus on SSD predictions this year? Are we looking at 250's posibbly 100-$120~ or the typically non BF deals at around 150?
Keep an eye on Staples. They ran a SSD sale about 7-10 days before BF and coupons could be applied. This made the SSD cheaper than the BF price and some stores stopped selling them because they were supposed to be removed from shelves the following day or day after that for the BF deal. Was a huge mistake on their part and I wouldn't be surprised if they do something similar again.
I think it was a Kingston 128GB SSD that ended up being $57 after tax and was going for between $70-90 before tax for BF.
Seeing as 250 GB's are hovering around the $150-$170 range I absolutely think the BF price will be in the $100-$120 range. I'm leaning closer to the $120 price point being the more likely of the two.
Usually. The times normally have to match up with the deal time. I always call ahead on Wednesdays and ask the manager. Make a list and match the price to the ad and the ad page for a quicker checkout.
yes they price match and i recommend people run and put things on layaway because layaway will be open on black friday for pick up only and if you have stuff prior to BF on layaway that is on sale you price match the BF price either from walmart or competitors ads i already have it sorted out so im not camping out...when that ad hits im running to put my stuff on layaway (i already have some stuff i know will be on sale)
