IMO the BX has never had much on BF. The best sales have always been in December and are more local and not in the flyers. Example: a couple of years ago when I was at Robbins in GA, one night they all toys 50% off and most winter coats 75% off. Over the years I've seen several one night sales that actually had bargains but never on BF.

Anyone have info on the Navy NEX sales? I didn't see a thread for the NEX - and I know their sales are generally different than AAFES.

The BX here at Tinker AFB is doing the same thing. They are taking names for a lottery drawing to be held next Saturday. You don't have to be present at the draw to win as they will call to notify if you win and you have 7 days to purchase the system.

I hate to break it as it's not really fair that everyone can't shop there, but the NEX will have the 37" Westinghouse monitor (LVM-37W3) for $799 all weekend. I'd say that isn't a bad deal for a tv that on average ranges from $999 to $1600. Had I not just gotten a killer deal on an openbox at best buy that would be my #1 door prize for my christmas party.

I stopped by the Andrews AFB BX this afternoon and their Sabre products were being pulled out of the box for their Black Friday display. There is a URL on the back of the 42" monitor for the company which is http://sabrece.com. There's no indication who is the real manufacturer but this looks to be the new "electronics house brand" for AAFES. The tag on the back of the monitor also says "Made In Korea".

Not a good sale this year :( They wouldn't let me use the 10% off coupon on item on sale. That has always been my main pull there on BF. Sale price and knock another 10% off a big ticket item. Very annoying :(
