BB (I think) did $10 DVD season set last year so I expect them to do that again this season with some good boxsets.


Oooo.......that would be great. I have a list of about 6 seasons of stuff that I want. Maybe I should wait.

Oh wait, DH and DD said they absolutely refuse to stand in line at a BB or CC on BF. Oh well........

You could always price match them at Walmart. Just get there super early and put them in your buggy.

I love that Wal-mart will price match. I always get there early and get the items I want for price matching. Saves time and money. Then I can head out to the other stores like Target, Kohls, etc.

I heard on the TV that most of the stores weren't going to have the big ticket items like the years before! None were mentioned specifically. Except for the computer I got for free last year at CC. The deals haven't been that great for the last 2 yrs.

Those Wal-Mart $3.44 DVDs on BF are older movies or single-disc movies of slightly newer releases, a.k.a. the jiant 'grab-n-go' bin where they typically offer DVDs 2 for $11. The more recent movies and box/season sets should be offered from $10 or so.

I've been watching ads lately and noticed CC and BB regularly have laptops priced at $400-$500 lately and they aren't bad specs on them. With laptops at these prices without rebates now i'm thinking at least one of them will have a laptop this year between $200 and $300.

I know our Wal-Mart is not allowing BF items to go in layaway this year. (I work there) That means more left for those with cash!

Anyone got any guesses on what sign-up offers folks like AOL or MSN will offer this BF? Think AOL will risk another meele like the one they caused last year ($250 IR when you sign up for 12 months of broadband AOL, which was worth $180 and almost everyone cancelled early :eyepoppin )?

:blush: Yeah, they only made three - that was a joke. The point was that the DVD's that are so cheap on BF are pretty old ones not current. But I have seen some good deals on current DVD's on BF, I love to PM those at WM.

Good point. A $200 laptop might be worth waiting for! :)

Actually I noticed in our WM a note that said that Nov 19 (if I remember correctly) is the last day they are taking layaway. That's gonna suck!

I predict dirt cheap computers (manufacturers reducing stock of non-Vista compatible models) and older model Creative Mp3 players. Creative has been releasing new mp3 players without discontinuing many models. They're perfect for BF.

Yup, that's bein' discussed over in one of the other GottaDeal forums, but that does suck for a lotta people.

One of my predictions for this year's BF is that credit companies are gonna rip tons of people off giving 'em credit cards for BF shopping at insanely high rates. But on the bright side of things, that means less people in line this year.

I am pretty sure that they will as long as it is the exact same item.

Wal-Mart will price match, but it needs to be the EXACT item right down to the model number. For example, the HP Pavillion ze2308 is different than the ze2308wm, and therefore will not me pm'ed.

Also, odds are that most of the BF imited item doorbusters are special order items that only that particular chain of stores will have. For example, last year Wal-Mart was the only laptop retailer with the ze2308wm Pavillion laptop on sale and in limited quantity.

Also just to throw in there. I have heard that MS is throwing in coupons for free-discounted upgrades for Vista for any computers purchased starting this month til the end of the year.
