What a bunch of idiots, what is so great about the ad anyway? They must be doing for the fame and hoping that BB will give them free stuff for lining up so early.

LOL!

NOTHING in that ad is worth it this year and I am a hard core BF freak! Maybe they hope to get a free iPad like one store did years ago. :gdstooges:

If someone is seriously in line already, that is just ridiculous! There is nothing there to save you that much money to stand in line for a WEEK! The store and/or cops should make them leave.

The way the one lady was slurping down soda, she was extremely hot! As others have indicated, they are the most ill prepared of the early shoppers. Sunburn will remove them faster than anything. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wll6GGuzy5k Camping is for the pros. The video will show you what you will need to stay for long periods of time.

I hope that nobody shows up for many more days and all those extra days will be useless... Also, the employees should not let them use the bathroom until Monday at least!

I emailed the store manager. I asked him not to give out any Ipads, or other enticements as I view this is a safety issue for the rest of us who camp for long periods of time.

Novel idea in theory but if people couldn't line up outside Best Buy until 6AM Thanksgiving morning wouldn't people then instead of lining up outside of Best Buy just make a line to be the first person to be first in line at Best Buy if you get what I am saying. Otherwise wouldn't there just be a mad, chaotic rush come 6AM to see who can be first and thusly the potential for some serious fights and such. Almost like a real life Hungry Games.

I can picture it, some saying to just run for the woods or be killed. Everyone sleeping in their cars til 6am then mad dash to make a line to wait again.

I'm almost hoping someone else will join them for safety's sake. 2 women sitting out there, ill-prepared, obviously they have their money with them....:/

I am not surprised. I figured the camping would begin this weekend. I didn't see anyone lined up at our BB on Wed night....but I won't be surprised to see them starting this weekend. It's going to be cold here in OH...best of luck to them!

I thought about that too. What if they are BB employees or their family members.

No joke! Welcome to the community!

GottaDeal.com regulars know I rent a port a potty and charge people for it's use. A buck a dump. I park it at the end of the parking lot.

Oh I hope that was a joke lol. I wouldn't want to be sitting next to it in line :)

Unreal. Hopefully they won't be giving them any free stuff. When the other people were given an ipad (last year) I turned to my husband and said, "Next year they will be lining up earlier just to see what kind of free stuff they get!"

This is why the BF deals have declined over the years - the rubes will line up anyway, so why should the stores cut prices drastically when they can get the suckers with very little discounting. It reminds me of when my local Circuit City liquidated. They brought in a liquidation company which changed all the price stickers to reflect higher prices, and then gave 10% off that. They actually had a line out the door and around the building full of people who fell for the "liquidation" deals which were actually higher than the regular prices had been the week before!
