Rather than have everyone post their own separate thread detailing their experience shopping on Wednesday night, 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 :)

This is for both online purchases as well as in-store!

I have spent most of my time on the Walmart website, and goodness knows I've had probably five separate orders... I have thus far ordered the following (which will be divided into categories):

 

Walmart--

 

1. Dirt Devil Hand Vac, BD10085

2. Warm Bodies DVD

3. Hanes Men's Undergarments

4. Duck Dynasty Season 3

5. Traveler Club 20" Hardside Rolling Upright Luggage (Chevron)

6. Casper DVD

7. Two pair of Wrangler Men's Relaxed Jeans

8. Anastasia DVD

9. Jack the Giant Slayer DVD

10. Epic DVD

11. Sunpack Lightweight Tripod

12. Identity Thief DVD

13. Monsters University DVD

14. HP Black Licorice 15.6" 2000-2d09WM Laptop (My pride and joy! :D)

 

Office Max--

 

1. 3 TB Toshiba Canvio External Hard Drive

 

Newegg--

 

1. McAfee Antivirus 2014 ($4.99 one)

 

Office Depot--

 

1. Samsung S24B150BL 23.6" monitor (My dad is going to be ecstatic about this--maybe he can finally read the screen! lol)

 

Lowes--

 

1. 3 poinsettias :D

 

 

I'm still going with my Dad and possibly my Mom this afternoon/evening to Target to get a few things in the store. I went last night to "scout out" the store and actually found the Color Cube thing for $12, and they honored it. My sister teaches Pre-K so she needs all the crayons and stuff she can get. I'd say, though, that I got probably 80% of my shopping done online within about 3 hours. That's a first for me. :) I also plan to visit Fred's, Rite Aid, Walgreens, CVS, and possibly Stage for something my sister says she doesn't want but secretly does. lol I hope everyone has fun, stays safe and warm, and does well this Black Thursday/Friday.

As I haven't even gotten out from under the blankets I managed to the PlayStation 3 for 199 at Amazon along with all the movies and video games that were on the wish list. And now I'm going to get up and make myself a cup of coffee and check out the rest of the sites!

I've bought some stuff online this morning from Petsmart, a small boutique store for my daughter and the soda stream from Target with the free $25 gift card so I don't have to go out tonight, but I'm a bit disappointed and having a hard time shopping more without these stores not offering free shipping.   

 

I am wanting to place an order at Justice and Sephora, but refuse to pay in upwards of $8-10 shipping which pretty much negates the discounts when I can just go to the store tomorrow to pick the items up.

 

Luckily still only have a handful of items left to buy, but would really prefer to buy more on my computer today.   *sigh*

I'm feeling pretty good so far!  Got lots of movies between Target and Walmart, sheets at both places, the Stephen King book I needed at Target.  The only thing that wasn't online was the Simpsons Season 10, in store only.  So, I might try to stop at Target after the initial rush.

 

I will head out tonight and tomorrow to Michaels, Golf Galaxy, Joanns and maybe Kohls if the line isn't out the door to check out. 

 

Now off to enjoy some Turkey and family!

Man! The online experience has been so great this year. Unless no one matches that $13.99 for the Man of Steel Blu-Ray at Kmart (and if I'm really dying to have it right now), I don't even have to leave my house ONCE.

So far so good!  

 

Wal-Mart:

BHG Warmer with wax cubes

Memory Foam Mattress Pad

Monsters University

Magic Mike

Carpet Cleaner

 

Amazon:

Les Mis combo pack

 

Victoria's Secret:

Hoodie

Earbuds

 

I need to go out to Wal-Mart tonight to pick up a few things that people didn't tell me they wanted until after I placed my order.  They were sold out by the time I could get back to a computer.  :-/  Hopefully I'll be able to snag the hard shell suitcase (for a sister that is planning on doing a lot of air travel in the next few months), a few movies, another BHG warmer, the iPad mini, and some PJs.  Then I need to head over to JCP to pick up a pair of boots. 

 

I woke up around 2:30 this morning for no reason at all.  I couldn't go back to sleep so I started messing around on Facebook.  Thank goodness I did because that's how I found out that the sales were live!

I went to Walmart earlier with my Dad, and we saw the hard case suitcases in person. They are pretty small, but they're really nice-looking and seem like they may be able to withstand some use. I ordered my sister's earlier this morning, so I won't be getting one in stores. Hope you can find what you're looking for! :)

Not much so far but then again, I don't really need/want much. I have not been out yet and don't know if I will.

 

Walmart.com - B&D programmable coffee pot $10

 

Target.com - Nikon L320 camera $99 and Battlefield 4 $35

 

Amazon - True Blood season 5 $10, Modern Family season 1 $10, Just Dance 2014 $15, Borderlands 2 $15, Double Power Android Tablet $39, Monsters University combo pack $10, The Walking Dead season 2 $10, dog pajamas $4, a wooden case art studio $11, The Wizard of Oz 75th Ann. edition $1.96 and  an SD card for $4.88.

 

I got Just Dance 2014 yesterday on Amazon for $25 but it hadn't shipped yet so canceled and ordered it from there today for $15.

 

Finally got my order to go through on Peebles website...$150.00 there. Placed another order yesterday.

 

Didn't go out to any stores. Not real sure if I will next year either. The new early times has done it for me. I'd rather stay home than have to go out and put up with everybody and their kids.

So irritated. I went to TRU to get the Kindle Fire. Got there shortly after it opened, went to electroniCS dept., waited in line about half hour. When I get there, they're all gone because they only had 3! THREE!!! That's just crazy. How can you advertise something and then only have 3 of them?

Went to Michaels. Got some super deals on Melissa and Doug products. They were buy one get one free AND the 30% off your purchase worked too! I didn't think it was supposed to on BOGO but it showed it on the receipt. That's supper good for M & D. I also got some stickers, plastic 4 pack of plastic storage for scrapbooking and that was mostly it. I just went to Shoe Carnival. Got a $10.00 card at the door. I got myself and my oldest DS some Sperrys. I had the $10.00 coupon in the paper so I had them ring them up separately so I could use the coupons on each pair. Stopped at Walmart-what a crazy mess-went in and then turned around and left. Back home and heading to the mall shortly. Don't really need anything but it's fun watching. I have a $10.00 off a $10.00 purchase so I will use that at Younkers. I'll be stopping at Gymboree and Crazy 8 but that's all. Then Joann's tomorrow. :)

Back from the only store I planned on going to.  In and out in 45 minutes at Walmart (would have been faster, but a little confusion prevented that).

 

Anyways my haul was 2 Disney Movies- Little Mermaid and Monsters U on Bluray.  Cheap DVD's of Hot Tub Time Machine, Horrible Bosses, and Here Comes The Boom.  NCAA 14 for the 360, 2 of the $5 Hot Wheels, and the rubbermaid plastic.

 

Now to wait for the Madden 25 deal on Amazon and I'll be set.  I have to go to Walmart tomorrow again, so I might get more DVD's.  I really just wanted the games.  Thought about the $98 TV but I passed.

Target online:
$35 Threshold ottoman
$8 House of Cards DVD
$6 Pitch Perfect DVD
$19.99 Biddeford heated throw blanket

Best Buy online:
Logitech harmony remote

Walmart online:
$15 Farberwear toaster oven

Amazon
$6 Silver Linings Playbook DVD

$9.96 Breaking Bad DVD's. Seasons 1-5

Office Depot (Friday in store)
50% Speck iPhone 4S case
$3.99 800-sheet Bonus pack hp printer paper


My Mom, sister and I decided to brave the crowds at our local Walmart for the 6 pm sale and ended up walking out with the $8.88 package of Sharpies, 4 of the $5 genie bras, 2 pair of the $9.50 men's Wrangler jeans, and the $28.88 Beautyrest memory foam mattress topper. Checked out and back to my parent's house by 6:25 pm. All in all I say that is the best Walmart experience we've had in quite some time, despite the annual towel fight. Maybe that's because it's the first year we've never needed a door buster item.

Are those towels really worth fighting for?? LOL. I make it a point to stay far away from that area! Just happened to be in the checkout line and saw the towels flying through the air and heard all the ruckus of the shouting.

One more trip in the morning to Fred's for iTunes cards and that's it for me.

We went to Target, I wanted the Ipad air with the 100.00 gift card.  We were about 60 people back in line, but my smart son knew where they would be, so he speed walked when the doors opened and was 3rd in line- so I got it!  Got some of the pajamas, looked at the boots but they were cheesey looking, so I passed.

 

We then went to the mall, which is usually where we score pretty big, but my son's girlfriend had too much to drink at her parent's house, so it was a big fail.  She was trashed.  So my daughter and I hurried thru Victorias Secret, I got some panties and the free bag- which was supposed to have "beauty essentials" in it- just 4 perfume samples :-/.  I got a great deal on some Guess boots at Macy's, but none of the coupons they had in the paper worked, so the checkout girl gave me 15 dollars off.

 

My daughter and I are going back to mall tomorrow, and back to Target to see if we missed anything. There wasn't anything I really wanted this year, so I am happy with my Ipad.  

 

Hope everyone scored big!!
