If I had it my way, the next 4 weeks would be gone in the blink of an eye.

With the deployment, there'll be nobody here to stay with the kids while I go from store to store...so I don't get to go out on BF. :( So I'm much less excited this year than I was last year. Online BF is not the same as waiting out in the cold LOL. You'd think being home would be better but I miss the experience.

Take them with you and play the trick "hey do you think xxx cousin will like this?"

My mom did that to me once. What a good idea that was.

Um, I don't think waiting outside a store at 4 am in 15 degree weather with kids ages 5, 3 and 1 is such a great idea. I don't think having them inside the store with everyone pushing and shoving is such a great idea either.

They will be. Don't worry.

There isn't enough time in the day it seems.

That's when the Black Friday buzz picks up and we'll have a few thousand new forum members :)

I actually dread black friday... My significant other works in a mall... and black friday means the start of her working late every day until after the holiday season is over.

Chris couldn't get off that day.....one of the other ladies in his trailer beat him to it. We are hopeing though, that if the deals are really good, we can do the same thing we did last year and that was get everything a couple of days before and just keep the recipts and then go back BF morning and go straight to the service desk and get the money back that we would have saved. It took him a LOT less time doing it that way last year.

I can't wait for BF. If the deals are signigicant, I'll bust my butt and work 10 extra hours M-W, so I can have Friday off. If I can get what I want online, then I'll just go into work and get my BF shopping done there.

I'm a little nervous because this year I'd really like a brand name 32 - 37" DLP/LCD/Plasma HDTV for $999 or less.

What size, type and budget?

I'm torn between a larger DLP 42" to sit in our livingroom (which we rarely use) or a smaller 32" LCD or Plasma in the bedroom in front of the bed.

It doesn't matter, as long as it's a good deal. I can always find a place for it, move things around, etc., etc. :D

if there's a sweet deal on a 42" flat panel TV, I might go for it. Otherwise, I'm sleeping in! :sleeping:

your decision will probably be made by the deals that they roll out. IMO a smaller one (less $) is better bec in a couple years you're going to want a newer, better one anyway

I already have a WS HDTV, but if there's hot deals, I'm all over it. :idea:

Agreed and I've actually seen the Syntax Olevia LT30HV 30" LCD TV for $777 at Fry's B&M.

If they offer this again at that price, I'll probably buy it. In a few years I can upgrade to a behemoth DLP 1080p.

Description: The Syntax-Olevia features a 30" LCD Active Screen with an Aspect Ratio of 16:9, Brightness 500cd / m2, Contrast 750:1 and a Resolution of 1280(H) x 768(V), leading to a good image quality. It comes with 2 removable speakers each producing a 10W output. Additionally, it features the following: a TV / Video Switch, Channel Return, MTS, PIP / POP3 / Split Screen / Grid, Aspect Ratio Adjustment; Clock, Alarm, Sleep Timer, Favorite Channel Setting, V-chip, Close Caption.

I'm not sure if I'm gonna go this year. It'll depend on who goes, and what they have. LCD monitor is what I want this year.

Great price. I'm looking for a 17"-19" LCD. Hopefully, it will be under $300.
