Target has traditionally put their Black Friday ad items online on Thanksgiving Day, so we are currently expecting the same for this year. No time has been disclosed yet, so if we find anything out, we'll post it here. If anyone out there finds anything out, please do the same.

Anyone know if it's likely that they would have the Kinect with Wipeout 2 online--or is that considered a doorbuster, because it is an add-on to the Kinect?

From what I remember, they rarely have the BF ad items that include free items online. Of course they have a new web site this year, so maybe they finally have the ability to do so, but in past years, you rarely saw any "bundle" offers online.

How about purchasing items that come with a gift card? How do they do that? Or do they not put those things on-line? TIA

Someone can correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't remember them doing those either. It was like their system wasn't set up to allow for free items. That may have changed with their new site though, so we'll just have to wait and see.

Thanks, Brad...that's what I thought, but I don't think this is considered a "doorbuster" per se, so wondered if it works differently...hoping the new site makes this possible--would sure like to take advantage of other early opening stores, instead of waiting outside til midnight!!

I think Brad is right, because I remember planning to buy something that was supposed to come with a GC two years ago, (when I still did a PA on BF instead of waiting in line), and I don't even think you could buy it and then go back and get the GC after, you could only get it in-store, during the sale...

Thanks Brad and stacya.
I am definitely going to try in-store first (nothing like having the prize in your hands) but wanted to know if *maybe* I could try the on-line route.
I think shopping is getting more complicated each year!

So, they've updated their website? I hate to say it, but every time I've went on their site in the last two weeks Target's website has ran entirely slow - too slow imo. I wonder how this will effect Black Friday shopping on their website. Has anyone else noticed it?

I noticed it too using IE but last night I downloaded firefox and it is moving A LOT faster with firefox... I wonder if it's having issues with IE. What are you all running when you open it up?

I'm running IE currently. But only because my Firefox has had a lot of issues and I've had no time to get that fully resolved. So I'm stuck with IE until after BF season.

Not sure what that means, a lot of issues, but did you try Chrome? I use Firefox and would never go back to IE. I have noticed that the Target website is still slow on Firefox, it's the new site it sucks.

I know the iTunes card won't be online since its a doorbuster....last year my Target was out of those by the time I got there at like 5:30 or 6 AM. I hope the video games will be online at BF prices....there are at least two I might get....and pajamas I really want these certain ones....and I am so glad I am a red card holder....free shipping AND an extra 5% off.

I won't be able to go to a Walgreens on Thanksgiving. My parents are hosting my dad's side of the family (there will be at least 80 people). All my shopping will have to be done online Thursday morning BEFORE I leave. Plus, I prefer bigger $ itunes cards rather than three smaller cards...
