I arrived at Best Buy at 5:15am and the lines were pretty long. Atleast 200 people ahead of me. 10-15 minutes later, the lines doubled.

I arrived at Sears at 3:55 am and there was not a single person there. Stayed in the van till about 4:10 when another car pulled up. It then drove away, but I stayed put. A few people showed up in the next half hour; the major crowd didn't arrive till just before 5 am.

I went to Target 1st. Got there little after 5 & there was a few already there. I am glad I got there when I did cause most of the ones at the front of the line were there for the 17.77 DVDs. They was all gone in a matter of secs of the store being opened.

We got to Best Buy at about 2:15am and were about 40th in line. I was shocked since last year we got there at 3:45am and were only about 25th in line. Luckily I got everything I wanted though.

We didn't stand in line anywhere, but went into Meijer about 4:45. The BF sale was not supposed to start til 5, but the $18 DVD players were already sold out by 4:30?? We got everything else we wanted though, although I don't think our Meijer was quite prepared for the crowd they got LOL!! We always go there on BF and it's never crowded, but this time the lines to check out all wrapped around the store! They had all the sale stuff scattered around the store (toys in the grocery dept etc) so my sister and I got in the long line, and when we saw someone with something we wanted we just asked them where they got it, and then I ran and got the items while she stayed in line :)

Chris hit Big Lots first at 6. I don't think there was much of a line and he was like number 48 to walk in because he got a free AM/FM radio (first 100 families). He went to Big Lots because I put him in the order of where the stores were. The things we needed at Sears weren't high priority items anymore since he had gotten those on Tuesday night so he went in store order.

I got to Kohl's at 1:30 and was the only one there.. no employees -nobody!! So I spent time going over my game plan, did some knitting ( I'm making blankets for the dogs at the Humane Society). Then at about 2:30 another car pulled in then the police. They came to check to see if we were ok, he told us that Wal-Mart already had about 25 or more people in line. It wasn't until 4am that someone else came so we went to the door. We were only out there for about 2 min when the ass. manager came to let us just inside the first set of doors to keep warm! I thought that was really nice of her! Thanks to whoever you are!!! By 5am there were tons of people and the Ch.8 news crew. Tried to get on TV but there was a camera hog :mad: who took all their air time! Oh and you know who you are!!! So there goes MY 15min of fame! LOL I did make sure I told any & everyone who would listen about this site! Hopefully there will be some new people from Ohio to join us here!

Since I only had three stores to choose from at 6:00, I chose K-Mart since they had most of what I wanted. I got there a few minutes before 5am, no one else in the parking lot. At 5:15 or so, another car came, the lady said they had just come from Walmart where there was about 200 people already in line. First in line, got what I wanted, out of there by 6:20. Since I didn't even see a K-mart circular, I knew what I wanted from this site. Next year, I may make the three hour drive to stand in line at one of the other stores that we don't have.

I got to Sears at 5:30 AM and was first in line, then at about 5:45 there were about 50 people there. Sometimes it's nice living in the middle of nowhere!

I was at Big Lots at 4:45, was the 3rd person there...got my cheesy (but free) radio and the Barbie cam and cd karaoke I went for...then hit Walmart ....was BUMMED but not surprsied that they were sold out of the Bratz dolls at 6:15 so I left and hit KB for the HULK r/c car for my 4yo. It was like 6:40 and there was a line waiting out the door to get in, but plenty of trucks and NO bratz left either :o( Hit one more walmart, got run over by a rude woman so I left and went home. Took about a 2 hour nap a little at a time.

my place is so crowded, i went to fry at 5:30, there's about 400 people hanging around in a line wraping around the store, and if you know fry, it's not a small store, it's a wearhouse, so warping around it in the manner of 3 lines (it was 3 lines), and by 6:15 we finnally got our foot in the store since they open at 5:45 to let people in, ok i dind't get anything, but my friends got the 3Ghz P4 combo, and a couple of cold/hot watter cooler thing. Next year i'm not going to fry, if i do it'll be like 1AM cuzz this is not working out, i was trying to get a DVD player for 15 bucks, but this is so bad :(

Actually I don't think they were as popular as they should have been. I was at a KMart today and still saw a few lying around.

For anyone interested, CompUSA has the same model for $169.99 after $30 MIR tomorrow. Kmart had/has it for $149.99 out the door.

We want to Mejiers first (4:20am) but they are open 24 hours so we didn't have to wait outside :)
