shopperstef, Are the DVDs for you? They are probably region 1 and will not play in Australian DVD Players, just so you know :)

Oh yeah I learnt that one the hard way :P I think the multi-region player I got for my last birthday was one of the best presents ever! DVDs are so expensive in Australia.

Ooh multi-region DVD Player, nice choice. Buy cheap DVD's and bring 'em home to Australia. Sounds like a winning formula to me.

Mara, Paying $78 for a $199 Hoover Steam Vac definitely qualifies as HOT! Nice job.

hey! just got back from Office Max. god that was FUUUUUN i got there at about 6am and was about 20th in line. then within 10min line DOUBLED. when it was getting closer to 7, everyone's friends started to come so i was may be 40th person, but since i am 15 and was with my uncle, i didnt crae coz i was gonna skip everyone any way. I met my friend on line and he was there last year so he knew taht we have to go to the door in the back to get most of the free stuff. i RAN to the door like someone was shooting me and i was the 1st one there! hehehe. i fot my stuff then we ran to get the rest. those ****** at office max put free CD-Rs next to $40 ones and the ptice tag was huge so it covered both Cd-Rs, so as you might think, i got the wrong ones and had to refund them after check out. i was lucky that my brother was in the city so he ran to Radio Shack and got CD-Rs from there. so after all, i am VERY happy with my first black friday! thank you guys for posting all the deals.

Boy, for those that have them, Meijer was the place to be this morning. Got a Portable DVD for $89. Two kids games for $3.75 each--Hi Ho Cherry-O and Don't Spill the Beans. Then I got a pack of Yu-Gi-Oh cards for $3.50 and a 2L bottle of Mt. Dew for .69 to round out my total to $100 so that I got the $10 reward on future purchase they were offering. That place was CRAZY!!!

Totally scored at Office Max, got there a little before 6am and was first in line, needless to say I got everything I wanted...sent one of my friends to Kmart to get the Liteon DVD Recorder for me, she only got there an hour early but she was second in line and got one no problem. That DVD recorder was such a deal. It's great to live in a town just big enough to have an Office Max and Kmart, etc, but not too many people concerned with BF deals. :) :2roller: :)

Went to Best Buy at 4:00 was about 20th in line ! Got the 256.00 Napster Mp3 player for 29.00 after rebates and a 50 pack of dvd-r's for 2.97 Dont think I really needed to be there that early as they had quite a few of the mp3 players and a bunch of the dvd-r but better safe then sorry. Went to Target and got the Garfield movie 8.88 and the Disney Twice Upon A Christmas 12.88 plus I had a coupon for 3.00 that when I bought huggies so that worked out good. Showed up to Toys R Us about 8 to see what it was like. My daughter is only 8 months we dont need too many toys this year and was surprised by all the stuff that was still left they ran out of some stuff but still had a few of there sales left thought that was a lot since they opened at 5. Went to the mall didnt find anything worth waiting in line for an 8 dollar sweater and standing in line for an hour and a half wasnt worth it to me. I was home by 9 now I'll sit back and watch the news for all the crazy stories.

Staples
Maxtor 160GB 7200 RPM 8MB Cache Hard Drive - $74.95 - $35 MIR = $39.95 (got two of them thanks to someone tagging along)

I know BestBuy had a better deal ($10 less in the end), but the out of pocket expense was higher ($120, then $90 in MIRs), plus the line at BestBuy was significantly longer (as I looked across the street from Staples at the BestBuy line, I noticed their line was already around the building (at least 100-150 people an hour before opening)). The Staples line was only 15-20 people long when I got there. :D

Arrived at BB 12:00. Line was longer than when I arrived last year at 1:30. We leave and go to another BB arrive 12:30. About 25th in line. We brought a 20' motorhome with us. We made pizza, watched Tv. had a place to go the bathroom. Got tickets for 3 computers, and a vid camera. Let my friends wife wait in line while we took a car to OM. Arrive 5:10 about 20th in line, ran and got dvd burner, flash drives camera, printer, lots of blank disks, cases, HD's, chairs, all the free stuff. Had to wait to get out, the computers all crashed. Finally get out, go to Office Depot, they were all standing around that place was empty. Got HD's, flash drives, sd cards, speakers. 10 min tops in there. Go to Staples, get HD's dvd burners, Dvd blanks, slim cases. another 10 min. go to CompUSA, got 256 memory, All in wonder card. Allmost an hour in here. Get back to BB at 8:45. Just in time to get our computers before the 9:00 deadline. His wife that waited at BB also picked us up the Dvd blanks and a NEC projector for me. We then went to Sears, the lines were so long and we were so tired that it wasn't worth it to buy any tools we really didn't need. I think the 3+ grand we spent before rebates was enough. They dropped me off at 10:00. Now I'm leaving to see Santa land over at the shopping center. Oh yeah I think I'll drop by Circuit City on the way! Thank you GottaDeal, for all your advance stuff that made our planning easier so that yesterday we were able to spend the day with our familys and not have to plan out what we were looking yesterday,for today. I also bought stuff at BB online 1 A.M.Thursday morning.
