Best Buy in Springfield IL - no one in line

There are, however, two porta-pottys set up and waiting in their parking lot. Would hate to be in one of them just as someone backs their car into it! ;

BB in (NW) Grand Rapids MI has I think about 7 tents set up and I've seen at least one kid under 10 in the line... Funny thing is they started the line on the wrong side of the doors.

No one in line at the Best Buy in Richfield MN next to Best Buy corporate. I was shocked. But it is MN and gets cold at night.

4 tents and about 20 people in line at my local Best Buy in Central Florida. I spoke with them briefly and they been in line since early Tuesday morning. Most of them are buying all the doorbusters they can and selling them later. Their goal is $1500 profit per person. Sucks that everyone is camping for 2+ days to make a little $$ but it is what it is.


Must be nice to have no responsibilites and be able to do that. Sucks for working families trying to get their kids laptops, video games from "santa", ect. Money is tight for families:(

20th in line at BB. Just about everyone in front of me is getting the $199 Sharp 42" and most are also getting the $179 Lenovo laptop. Not as much interest in the ASUS tablet as I thought, which is what I'm here for.

Ok, that makes sense now. I was trying to figure out what they would be waiting in line for until midnight or whenever they open. :) It is right next to Best Buy, so it was just weird!

On the way home from our Thanksgiving dinner we drove by Best Buy and also saw a line at Micheals.

This was in Appleton. :)

In line at Walmart in East Windsor, CT for a laptop. Arrived at 7:15 and doors were open. About 10th line for the laptop. People are all around the 10pm items. I can see already it is going to be a fight for items. Oh the insanity. :)
