I'm not sure what they were called last year, but I remember Lowe's would put up an item and you had to be the first of so many to respond with your e-mail and then they would send you a confirmation if you received the deal. I got a great tool set for my dh last year. Anybody know if they'll be doing it this year? It was a lot of fun.

I think it is too early. If they do it again this year they might announce it during the first 2 weeks of Nov

I remember an equal number of folks who were upset because some people seemed to score multiple deals and others came up empty. It might be wise for them to put participation limits to encourage fairness this year.

hmm, that countdown ends at 1am EST, wondering if that is telling us something about their opening time?

I just "liked" them. They have this posted which was posted 13 hours ago.

Get the thrill of the battle without the fight on Black Friday. Keep an eye on our Facebook page to get a glimpse of Black Friday offers!

I got an email from Lowe's saying that I clicked "Like" on their FB page I could get a sneak peek of some BF items. I clicked like and didn't see anything. Was anyone able to see these items?

On their FB page you can play a Black Friday showdown game. I think the items in the game are from their ad and what their prices are going to be.

I played last night as well, but didn't think to write down the items with the prices. Only one I remember is the 6' Wagner fiberglass ladder for $19.

There really isn't a PDF as these were just pics taken off their Facebook game. We'll have the "real" ad with a PDF soon enough.

Are you sure this is the black friday stuff? I thought is was same type of thing from last year where only certain people would get those deals. Isn't this what this is referring to? HOW THE GAME IS PLAYED: To play the game, select the product you think will be most popular according to all the eligible sweepstakes entrants ("Entrant Popular Vote") in each of the thirty-one (31) product matchups ("Matchup(s)"). Once the sweepstakes ends, Ralph, Lowe's third party administrator ("Bracket Administrator") will tally the total votes received for each product in each Matchup from all eligible entries to determine the final product bracket based on Entrant Popular Vote. Points will then be calculated and tallied for each eligible sweepstakes entry by Bracket Administrator. For each correct product selection in each product Matchup, 2 points will be awarded in the First Round, 4 points in the Second Round, 6 points in the Third Round, 8 points in the Semi-Final and 10 points in the Final Round. Maybe we're talking two different games.

The Char-Griller Duo Gas and Charcoal Grill is not a good deal. There is no smoker box on the side. It is around $80 extra and the metal is not strong on the grill.

If you are in the market for a good grill I would suggest the Triton at Academy Sports.

It comes with a smoker box and everything. I have had the grill for 2 months and love it.

My final was the DYSON, I didn't realize it'd end up like that, or maybe I'd have thought more, it is expensive, but not THAT expensive, maybe something like the charcoal grill would be the most selected choice...oh well...they said it is whomever has the MOST answers right, you really think they'll calculate that fairly? Or just pick someone LOL... ANd what do we win again? all the prizes, or just the ones we wanted??
