It's contest time once again...

How to enter: Let's say you were given $1,000 to buy anything in any of the posted Black Friday or other holiday ads. What would you buy?

Reply to this thread with the store, item name and price for each item you'd buy. Make sure you don't spend over $1,000 total (but don't worry about including tax)

Feel free to use items from any sale, including sales which we post between now and the end of the contest as we should see quite a few more ads over the next week.

Limit one entry per member. Entries will be accepted until 11:00pm ET on Saturday, November 7th. At that point I'll randomly choose 8 entries and those members will receive mystery prize packs.

Limit of one prize pack per member but if you win you are still welcome to enter future contests for fun.

For more info on the Mystery Shirt Prize Packs we're giving away this year, see this thread.

Good luck to everyone!

This one is always a fun contest.  Unless I win Publisher's Clearinghouse, I don't think I'll fall into $1000 so its fun to dream.  Here's what I would get, all from Best Buy.

 

2x WD Easystore 5TB External Portable Hard Drive ($89.99) (Total- $179.98)
1x Xbox Series X ($499.99)
1x Madden NFL 21 Xbox Series X ($27.99)
1x Forza Horizon 4 Standard Edition Xbox One ($14.99)
1x Digiland 10.1" Tablet ($59.99)
1x Roxio Easy VHS to DVD 3 Plus ($39.99)
2x SanDisk Ultra Dual Drive Go 128GB Flash Drive ($18.99) (Total- $37.98)
1x SanDisk Ultra Plus 256GB Memory Card ($29.99)
1x SanDisk Extreme Plus 256GB microSDXC Memory Card ($29.99)
1x Sunpak Youtube Creator Vlogging Kit ($24.99)

1x Amazon Fire TV Stick Lite ($17.99)
1x $5.99 Blu Ray Movies
 -Jay and Silent Bob Reboot ($5.99)
 - I Still Believe ($5.99)
 -Peppermint ($5.99)
 -Armageddon ($5.99)
 -Creed II ($5.99)

 -The Polar Express ($5.99)

Total: $999.81

 

It seems like a lot of storage with the hard drives and flash drives, but it will come in handy.  Realistically, only the VHS to DVD and some of the movies are on my radar to get.  Though the new Xbox looks really good.
