Rather than have everyone post their own separate thread detailing their experience shopping on Thursday & Friday, we're going to do what we always do and have this one main thread. If you post your experience in a separate thread, we're either going to merge it in here or delete it, so if you want to make sure you don't do all that typing for nothing, make sure it goes in here. Thanks :) PS - Feel free to post what you've ordered online as well.

I grabbed a couple of the $240 37" Dynex TVs at Best Buy this yesterday. Pleasant surprise. After rewards, these cost ~$213.

I got the Playstation Bundle from Walmart the other day, and I just got Madden Football & the JVC car stero from Best Buy. Sorry I missed out on the other good games. I'm going to check out the 4 Blu Ray movies for $20 at Walmart right now.

I got cancelled already too (as always, check out my signature). I ordered a PS3 Uncharted Bundle from B&N and used the 30% off code (Yeah, I took a chane and it went thru). A few hours later my hopes were diminished.

Did they contact you when they cancelled your order and did they already take your money? I hate Barnes & Noble and my paypal right now :( it won't release my money. :no: I also hate how they sent a scheduled to ship confirmation before cancelling it without telling me. I would've been waiting for it to arrive next week.

I always double check my orders later in the day which is how I found out it got cancelled. I now have to borrow $200 to buy it somewhere else since my money is on hold... /sigh

=======================================================================

On a happier note... I just ordered the PS3 bundle from Best Buy... crossing my fingers that nothing goes wrong...
I also got luggage and a gift from JCPenney and headphones from Radio Shack. Now I have less places I need to purchase things at!

Today online: got Mortal Kombat from Amazon for $29.99 and a YuGiOh collection (not on sale). Got the 24" Dynex from Best Buy for $79.99 along with Assassins Creek Revelations for $34.99. Missed the Batman but still hope for cheaper price. Been buying stuff from my Amazon wish list for the past couple of weeks as prices dropped.

Went to Meijer and got two of the arctic coats for $20 each (regularly $65 each) and five tins of popcorn for $3.96 each (for bosses gifts).

There was a line at Walgreens which was pretty sad because people were buying everyday items on sale such as laundry detergent, toilet paper and paper towels, which I bought too. Got ibuprofen for 99 cents and four bags of candy for $10 with a $5 coupon that printed out at the register for next visit.

Had fun. Might venture out to Walmart tonight after I get back from dinner.

So far:

3 Pillow Pets from Amazon (right around $15 each). They are not the brand pillow pets, but are the same size, still get great reviews and I'm sure the kids wont care and I was happy with the price. :tongue1:

and some other items like 2 books for BF, brain teaser puzzle for dd and some things for the parents.

Never made it out to CVS yet for the free items after instant rebates but will be stopping by on the way to the parents in a few hours.

I picked up a kitchen cart at Big Lots this morning. (Thankfully the 32" Dynex LED didn't go on sale while I was there.)

I lucked out and got the 32" Dynex, Big Bang Theory Season 4 and the Sony Media Player for $49 online from Best Buy.

I bought the 6' step ladder for $19 and a worklight for $9 at Lowes.com.

We are done with our Black Friday shopping! YAY! I can sleep in tomorrow morning...the first time in several years. lol

I ordered the $99 Nikon on Target and hope it doesn't get cancelled. My oldest DD really wanted it but none of us want to stand in line at Target. Plus our Target is lacking in how to run the electronics deals on BF. I've been ordering various Blu-rays and DVD's on Amazon all week. Last night BigLots had a sale for BuzzClub members and I got The Game of Life for 4.88 and DJ Hero II bundle for 13.88. So at midnight I'll be at Beall's for clothes and I'm done. Bonus, there was a 10/25 coupon for BF at Bealls on the Orlando Sentinel this AM.

Went to Walgreens this morning for the sale items and had three credit cards "decline" with four people behind me. Turns out they were actually needing a managers approval for some giftcard deal that she did wrong and it was asking for a managers approval, but she was reading it as a credit card decline. So, after being thoroughly embarrassed and panicked that someone had got all my accounts I wasn't very excited about my "free" toothpaste or itunes gc deal. :(

I got my 8gb Ipod touch from Bestbuy.com. I thought the whole experience of not knowing when the sale was going to start was terrible and very unnecessary. I waited all night and morning taking 30 min naps so i would not miss the sale. Smh BB needs to work on how they deal with their online sales.

I originally ordered the Acer Iconia 7" from BB this morning. Shortly after got a message that the Acer Iconia 10" was selling @ Kmart for $219.00 I ordered quickly and cancelled the 7". DD13 will be thrilled when she gets it.

I am online at Best Buy in the top 15 to get the $199 Sharp, the Asus Transformer and the 24" Dynex. There are not alot of people here at all. Very surprised. Maybe 50-60 people. It was a beautiful day today too:)
