I only bought movies online from Best Buy, but got 5 movies under 30 bucks so I'm happy.
Super Troopers 2
Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri
All were on Blu-ray and included digital and all except The Sandlot and Super Troopers included a DVD as well. Again, that was pretty much all I wanted, but still hope to make a Walmart run likely on Friday once the craziness is over. Age has caught up with me to deal with Walmart madness.

Then, I grabbed a copy of Incredibles 2 at Wal-Mart for $15.
Next, a copy of Forza 4 for XBox One at Best Buy for $30.
Then, Solo for $17, Christopher Robin for $18, Jurassic World 2 for $10, and Paddington 2 for $6 at Best Buy.
Waiting for Target and hoping to get Peter Rabbit for $6, Ninjago for $6, Smurfs for $4.
Other than this, I am planning on a few movies and some cheap towels at Wal-Mart tomorrow evening, wrapping paper at Rite Aid, fleece at JoAnn's on Saturday, and then I am done with Black Friday.

I got five Insteon dimmer switches from Smarthome for $138.10 and ten Insteon toggle switches from Amazon.com for $262.30. I bought Airpods and some thumb drives (for the Roku TVs and laptop backups) from Staples. Cook's Essentials 5.3qt Digital Air Fryer from QVC for $69.98. That's all I can remember ;-)

I only wanted a couple things from Walmart, one being a movie, but since they can’t be bothered to put things in their online sale, I just took my money to Best Buy instead and ended up getting a better deal anyway. Walmart: Digital copy of movie - $8 plus shipping. Best Buy: Blu-Ray, Dvd, and Digital Copy Combo Pack - $9.99 after coupon + free shipping. You lose, Walmart.

Just got to Target we are third in line. Beautiful 62 degrees, so glad we moved south!
You have the same weather we are having. Not currently in line anywhere because we can’t decide where to go first. Lol

JCPenny had a line from the front door around the side to the back of the building to get in when it opened. The line to check out was over 40 minutes. There were a lot of people just using the $10 off $10 coupons and a lot buying carts full of stuff. They ran out of carts and were asking people for them as they checked out. Very hot waiting in line.
Posted Nov 22, 2018 - 7:10 pm
Walmart movie area was ridiculous as well but I checked out in 5 minutes once I was able to get out of the movie area.
Posted Nov 22, 2018 - 7:34 pm
Bought a lot but the biggest for us was a Playstation 4 Spiderman bundle from Kohls so another $60 in Kohls cash
Posted Nov 22, 2018 - 8:48 pm
Wal-Mart online (waaaah!! Hour plus to check out!) Got our new mattress.
Amazon at 6am this morning- 1st Kindle ordered.
DG at opening (7am) $30 worth of toys for $17. Total was supposed to be a $1 less but I wasn't going to argue with the lone cashier who was by herself and trying to hang all the promo signs while checking people out.
Home for parade and cooking. More Amazon because nurse mom had to work and couldn't answer before previous order. Ordered a total of 4 Kindles today between her, sister, and myself. Delivery guy is gonna hate me Mon-Tues ish next week.
Wal-Mart, arrived at 5:15. Lines for hot items but they let people put any toys (grr) and some home goods in their carts before sale time, they just couldn't get in check out. Got everything in my list, only a few impulse buys so I was pleased. Found Paw Patrol in the regular movies ringing up at the promo price.
Told my husband to not let me loss tomorrow, I need to stop! Pretty well done shopping now! Few odds and ends and DH's big gift.

Target online: $4 movies, 32” TV for $79
Walmart in person: otter boxes for $13, deluxe spa kit $15, eureka vacuume $29, stainless steel trash can $25, furreal dog $20, Pyrex bowl set $19, rubbermade set $7, Hanes panties 7 pack $4.75
Again, as every year, there were people that didn’t understand the concept of know what you want before you go. Lots of people stopped with carts in the aisle, looking through sizes, stopping to chat, waiting on others....ugh lots of directions on my part to get things moving. The bins were popped at 5:59, I was through the store, checked out, and in my car at 6:28. Good times!!!
Posted Nov 23, 2018 - 6:12 am
Best buy all online:
WWE 2K19, 2 controllers, Assassin's Creed Odyssey and South Park the Stick of Truth for PS4
Skyscraper, both John Wick movies, Black Panther Bly ray
Hisense 55" 4k
Walmart was an adventure in chaos. Got a ticket for the tv was told to go pay for it at a register. Right at 6 pm half of the registers in walmart went down. Great timing! Then at one that was working I was told I needed to pay for that where the tv was. No the tv is in the garden area and I have to drive around to pick it up. 2 people told me I was wrong. Luckily worker #3 got it right.
Posted Nov 23, 2018 - 7:21 am
The only place I need to go to today was PetSmart for the B1G1 FREE treats.
Only 4 people in the store at opening time. LOL.
Posted Nov 23, 2018 - 8:01 am
Michael's about 8:30, a normal Saturday is 3 times busier. It was very odd.
For what I got... Puppy pads, milk bones, and a dog stocking. Nothing at BBW, and some gingerbread floral picks at Michael's. I just wasn't in the shopping mood. But I did place a Kohl's order while I was in the parking lot, for something that I ordered last night for pickup at my store, but was cancelled. So picked the next closest store.
Posted Nov 23, 2018 - 8:13 am
Best Buy was steady but not packed. I managed to get the last thing on my list that sold out online. The Dark Knight 4k. I did notice that the employees were a bit on the attitudinal side. Not smiling or even remotely friendly. Yeah we get it you're tired. But at least try to fake it and keep your bitchy attitudes in check. One even got ignorant with me when I tried to ask her a question. Far cry from the hospitality at Target.

We ended up getting:
Movies - Walmart and Target
Xbox Games - Walmart and Target
Switch Games - Target
Griddle - Target
Pillows - Walmart
Sheets - Walmart
Rugs - Walmart
Fujifilm Camera - Target
Toys - Walmart
Makeup - Target
TCL 65" TV - Walmart
Some other stuff I'm too tired to remember right now lol.
As for stores nothing was bad, employees were super nice. BB We didn't get anything we wanted (out of stock) but the people where nice to us and tried to help.
Posted Nov 23, 2018 - 10:26 am
55” $199 TV
40” $125 TV
20 strands of garland
We were third in line at Target. We got there at 2pm. The first woman in line got there at 12pm. At around 4pm the manager came out and asked everyone what they wanted to buy. The first two in line said the PSP 4 Spider-Man. The manager said they didn’t have any! I felt so bad.
