im also looking to price match on the bb dvds, & for the little people sets, plus the dual-screen (in-car) dvd player & care bear...should i be going earlier? :confused:


I think I would if I were you, well depending where you are. Where are you shopping this year? I am going so early because I have to get a lot in my cart before getting in line and I know that the little people and care bears are going fast! I called my wm to see how busy they get, you might want to do that too. One said people start getting there at midnight and another said 3! lol I think I eill take the chance that there will be people there at midnight and if not I can always put stuff on layaway and go sit in my car Or I can hop into my cart and play tetris on my game boy!

Probably try to be at BB by 2:30 - no later than 3:00. Guy at BB tonight said if I want some of the big ticket items I had better be there by 3:45. Another one said when he comes in at 4:30 the line is at the other end of the shopping center, so guess I better go to bed early!:tired:

I had to do the after thanksgiving dinner because my time wasn't an option. I got into line at 10 pm but was planning on getting in line at 12 am. I did a drive by and thought I had better stay. Good thing I did because at 12 I would have been the 50th in line. Tina

Got back to my daughters house about 9 P.M. Thanksgiving night and checked out the message board. Seen where there was already 25 in line at some Best Buy in California, so being from Missouri, we hightailed to our Best Buy arriving at 9:40, #46 & #47 in line (before cutters). We ended up with three of the $149 emachines----one which the upgraded to a much better one, because when we went back they had already sold it; a Kodak C360 Digital Camera, MP3 Player, 512 Scan Disc for the camera, and the 14.99 router/wireless kit. Didn't get a laptop, they only had 14.
