I worked at Best Buy during black friday one year. It was terrible.

I am in the market for a tablet and a laptop. I'm wondering if the Kindle Fire HD will be cheaper then. I'm definitely upgrading my laptop, but I will be ordering online. The laptop I have now was bought on Thanksgiving several years ago. I want a nice TV for my bedroom, but I don't have to have it.

I will use my Citi Forward for amazon purchases and my Discover More for other stuff. I will also buy some gift cards at my grocery store with my BCP so I can pick up some Blu rays. Blu rays are cheap that weekend, and there are some I want to add to my collection.

Or did you mean this Black Friday...

When Black Friday comes
I'll stand down by the door
And catch the grey men when they
Dive from the fourteenth floor
When Black Friday comes
I'll collect everything I'm owed
And before my friends find out
I'll be on the road
When Black Friday falls you know it's got to be
Don't let it fall on me
When Black Friday comes
I'll fly down to Muswellbrook
Gonna strike all the big red words
From my little black book
Gonna do just what I please
Gonna wear no socks and shoes
With nothing to do but feed
All the kangaroos
When Black Friday comes I'll be on that hill
You know I will

When Black Friday comes
I'm gonna dig myself a hole
Gonna lay down in it 'til
I satisfy my soul
Gonna let the world pass by me
The Archbishop's gonna sanctify me
And if he don't come across
I'm gonna let it roll
When Black Friday comes
I'm gonna stake my claim
I'll guess I'll change my name

IF there are deals, I'm not convinced they will be that much better than those sales leading up to or post Xmas. Sure there are door crashers, but those are one of's that only a crazy few will ever get so I don't count them as real deals.

These are the guys that get the door crashers. Most of us, just watch on TV the net result of people getting trampled on
