I was thinking the same thing... I'm in the eastern time zone and BB is in the central so their official Thursday morning would be 1am.

Yep, I will most definatley be up. Last year the prices started to drop at around 1am EST. They staggered the prices and it was a long night for me. I was waiting on a laptop and it was 7:30am before the price for that finally dropped. Hope it all goes live at once this year.

That happened to me about 2 years ago when I got a laptop from BB except I was done between 3-4am. Those staggers kill me, refresh becomes your best friend.. lol
I think they should have everything go live at one time.

Will they have the $40 Blu-Ray player available at 1am? I don't want to wait up if it's not going to be on there.

Okay...thanks. Wasn't sure if they'd have that online because it's a doorbuster. I can bide my time and see if it goes on sale. Not like I have to work in the morning. :-)

The sale starts at 12 midnight at the actual store. But on the ad for doorbusters it says Nov 24 -Nov 26 CST. Who knows when it will start...

You can go to their site and pull up ad. Place your cursor over the item you want to see if it is in store only.

They just switched a lot of items "Add to cart" button to "Coming soon". As in prior years this means we are on time for ~10PM PST/12AM CST/1AM EST for the start of the items coming online... get your F5 keys ready!

Yup, I got 4 out of 5 things in my cart then it switched to "Coming Soon". Oh well, I won't wait all night for it. If they are not all live around 1am Est then I will try in the morning. :)

So how does this exactly work? If you know exactly what you are looking for,do you just go to the main bb website, look for the item you want and place it in your cart and keep hitting refresh until the discounted price shows up??? from what i understand, there are going to be items for sale on black friday that are generally not sold in stores....

I'm staying up too! I've been strategizing how to get the things I'm looking at. It looks like the things labeled as doorbusters will not be online but I'll still check later just to see.

Make sure you F5 the BB site, not the forum :P Every year everyone keeps refreshing these threads to get the latest posts and it brings the servers to a crawl.

I should probably finally go through the BB ad to see if there is anything I actually want.

Ya it depends on what you want. I'm only getting the Xbox Live card, Supernatural Seasons 5 & 6 and the 8 disk Harry Potter set. All are online and say coming soon so hopefully they go on sale online. :)

Well I'm waiting and ready to score a PS3 at Best Buy, if Target proves to be a bust. At least with Best Buy I have the product page I can keep F5ing, but with Target I have no product page with which to do so. :eyepoppin: :cheesy:

I saved the items I want to "my wish list" so I just have to refresh that page and can see if any of the prices have dropped yet.
