Did you notice the frenzy yesterday? Early yesterday, Walmart experienced a large influx of shoppers trying to get items at supposedly Black Friday Prices. items were selling out in minutes. $300 50 inch TV, $329 46 in LED TV, etc. If you were late to the party, you got a nested loop where their logo constantly snowed into your ever refilling shopping cart!

 

In other news, I did get the 10.1 inch XELIO tablet....Rated a 3 out of 5 so far....

I wonder if the whole thing gives some insight into their Black Friday ad. If it wasn't a hacker, maybe it was BF website prep gone wrong.

It wasnt' a hacker. They said it was a technical mistake. Many things were marked up to 356, lots of legos, monster high dollls. Things weren't at black friday prices, they were 90% off and more. A 150.00 book set was 3.05. Most all the books were 3.05. I got the cancellation email today with the 10.00 gift card, but on online deals post about this whole thing, many people picked their items up immediately in store.

Well, I am glad that some people got what they ordered. It was one very interesting day! Closing thread.
