I actually had to work that day. At the meijer where I work at. It was pretty busy but our deals weren't as good as say best buy's.

Frostbite from camping out for 5 hours in front of circuit city for the laptop they had on sale, just to be told they only got 15 of them and me and the other 25 people who had camped out for 5 hours were shit out of luck because 15 other people had been there since 2 that afternoon.

I would have gone home after the first hour and a half but it was supposed to be an xmas present for the g/f.

"Bait and switch". They're then legally obligated to sell you a laptop of at least equal value for the same price.

Nothing, I'm not setting foot inside a mall until after Christmas.

Online shopping, however, I'm going to make out like a bandit <img src=smilies/cwm27.gif>

I think that is only the case if they never intended to sell you the 'bait' in the first place....in this case, they just sold out of the bait.

My girl wnated to get this camera at Target for like 50% off, so we got up at like 5:30 and stood in line to find out they only had like 20 damn cameras. Classic bait and switch, and I saw it coming. Black Friday is a giant scam for the sharks to put out false advertisments and the coupon-cutting to even more insane for eating them up. Later that day, however, I got a nice brown wool coat and a pear of leather gloves for a good price at Old Navy.... I still got up waaay to early. Starbucks made some good money off me, to say the least

My uncle got there like 5 minutes before they opened (there were probably a hundred people in line before him) and made a mad dash for Electronics. Ended up with the 3rd to last camera. <img src=smilies/thumb.gif>

The add said "minimum of 15 per store" so sadly I couldn't bitch too hard. Plus I was too tired and cold to care at that point.
