What kind of stuff does BL have for doorbusters/blitzes on BF? I've been during a regular sale, to get specific items, and I buy some Xmas decorations and things there, but never been on BF.

Big Lots usually has some of last years popular toys. They usually have grandfather clocks or a curio cabinet and sometimes they have recliners at a good price. Electronics you want to be wary of though they are always rebuilt or as they call it remanufactured and are not always they best!

Last year I remember getting a particular game for my sis that was a really good price...can't remember the name of the game now though. The only thing I don't like is that they don't always seem to have the stuff that is in the ads or there are very limited quanities available

Your right there are very limited quanities, sometimes youe were lucky if you got a quater of a pallet of any one thing. Big items like furniture you are lucky if there are ten of those items.

Last year, they had MP3 players, dvd players, and stereos that were new, and extremely inexpensive. This varied by store, of course.:)

The one I always go has had $20 Fossil watches. They were new in the cute little tins. They usually run $70-100+ at The Buckle. Styles do vary though and they usually only have 5-10. Good thing is that they didn't advertise it around here the last couple of years so while everyone else busted the door down for $1.99 Barbies we got to the watches.

I talked to an assistant manager yesterday at Big Lots. She told me they haven't even seen the Ad yet. She was getting worried about it. That is probably why it has been leaked yet.

Etoys.com gets a lot of stuff from BL, so don't think they only sell crap. I bought a toy for my son on etoys, paid an extra 30.00 for shipping and went to BL the next day and saw it for same price of etoys minus shipping

I went to their turkey day sale last year and got an excellent deal on an electric blanket and got some great brand name toys for my son. I hope the ad is leaked soon.
