We almost always hit Walmart first. From there we go to Kmart, Target, and Kohl's.

Every year it is WalMart first....from there KMart, Home Depot, and then it usually depends on the ads.

I have to see the ads first, but you can bet that Target and Sears are on the top of the list! (We avoid WM at all cost if we can)!:gdparanoid:

Since we've started BF we've always done the following: 1. Walmart - It opens b/f Target and its a 24hrs store so you can stand next to the things you want. 2. Target - Walmart and Target are less than a mile apart so we can get to Target a good 40mins b/f they open. - My mom sometimes hits up Herbegers b/f Target opens and is back in time to load up the car or help out inside. 3. Best Buy - We only get DVDs and little things that are either lying around or are being passed out by employees. - While my sis and I are hitting up BB my mom is usually done or heads to Kohls. It may change this year b/c we want a TV (21' or 26') and we are hoping Target has a good deal, we've kinda already ruled out BB b/c I don't want to wait in line on TG morning! So it might go Target, BB, Walmart, but I guess once the ads all come out I'll know for sure!

BF is the ONLY time of the year that I will go to Walmart and even that is a nightmare sometimes. But its been easier to get Nitendo DSes, Digital Cameras, etc... there, since its a 24hrs store. Plus last year they had a heck of a lot of cheap DVDs!

WalMart first, then our local gallery (we go to KMart in there first).

Depends on the ads and the lines. I'm not interested in pitching a tent ;) I've started at Kohls once and Staples every other year. Probably start at Staples again this year. Their deals are pretty good, they handle the line well, and the line never gets *too* long. I could also see myself outside Radio Shack. Walmart has long lines but moves people and merchandise as well as it can be done. The other Big Boxes are further away and the lines are bigger, so there is no chance I will begin at a CC or a BB.

I am in agreement with those who wait for the ads first. In the past, my wife would wait at either KB Toys or Toys R Us, while I would wait at either Best Buy or Staples.

we usually go to walmart so we can wait inside where it is warm. We get there early so we can grab the thing we want to price match and then off to target. We will have to wait until the adds come out.:)

It really depends on the ads but this year I need lots of electronics so it will be Best Buy or maybe Wal-mart depending. I have started at every where from Target, Macys, and even Pep Boys!

It used to always be Walmart but the past couple they haven't had much worth going for. Last year our first store was Kmart then onto Target and Walgreen's

Best Buy usually for the doorbusters. Then maybe Walmart. But this year we have a new BB&B and Circuit City right across the highway from Best Buy so we'll see how their deals fare!

I go to Kmart first because it usually starts their sale an hour before Walmart. Then we head to WalMart. Since its a 24 hour store we go right in and stand where we need to be.

Circuit City. After that, it'll depend on the ads, but last year my brother and our friend went to Sears and Gamestop while I went to Home Depot and Target.

Well, the past 2 years, It's been Wal-Mart first because they are open 24 hours to pricematch my DVD's, CD's, etc. Then, I head to Target because I'm out of there within 30 minutes and wait until Target opens. Then next door to Best Buy and then to the mall stores. I guess it depends on the ads for me.

I will be going to Walmart first as that is the only store in my area and it looks like I will have to work that day so I will be unable to travel to other stores to go shopping.
