    Well... I missed out on 46" Sharp Aquos deal in Circuit City ($1299), both online and in store...

    So what did you buy or missed out or didn't buy during Black Friday?

    I didn't buy any 42 or 37 LCD tv. Walmart was suppose to have a Poloroid 42 LCD 1080P for 799, but when I called they said the only tv sale they had was on a 32.

    bought two Garmin gps 330 for 128.00 ea.

    No, I hate shopping and I hate crowds. Therefore, Black Friday is not for me.

    I hate big crowds and shopping places, don't care much for discounts, i buy it if i need at (well my parents do). Therefore i would never go shopping on Black Friday.

    I got my new AK90's matched at the TW storefront...if you ever have the chance, drop in at the physical store. They have some really nice people in there.

    I as very tempted by that PS3 deal at Wal-Mart. If you bought the 80GB PS3, you got 10 free Blu-Ray movies of your choice in addition to the 5 free ones through the Sony promotion.

    In the end, I didn't want to spend the money even though I plan to eventually pickup a PS3 or X-Box 360.

    Pffft, like I'd know
    I slept till 1:30, played tennis till 3:30 then went back to sleep until about an hour and a half ago, and I'm going back to bed soon. I bought nothing, I was too busy sleeping...;)

    unlike **************...those guys are jerks!..my friend panamamyrs on here bought a case of dunlop absorber balls...but turns out he opened them up and it was dunlop champ balls...he took them back, and they just traded them for nothing, he wanted some type of 10% or something off for it being their mistake and him having to drive 25 miles just to get there. i'm sticking w/tw. Not to mention this...i talked to the manager about this and he was very rude, and i'm a tennis coach and get coaches discount there and asked me about 5 time are u currently working as a coach...JERK!

    They had a great deal at circuit city...buy any wireless router 80 dollars or more (INCLUDING rebate), and get a free printer/scanner valued at 70 dollars!. There was a wireless router that was 80$ with a 50$ rebate so yay me.

    I went to the Queenstown...it was crowded as h*ll there too... I only bought some clothes from a few stores that aren't too crowded. I went to Gap, Oldnavy and Aeropostale (too many highschool and college kids I guess)..the line at the cashier was unbelivably long..forget it.

    I thought the best deal of the day was COACH. My gf got a medium size bag for $130 ($330 retail)...

    How was the leesburg?

    In the Factory Outlets at Wrentham, MA, there was a four hour traffic jam on the highway. When people got to the mall, they had to park on the grass as it was so crowded. I would prefer that the malls didn't have these kinds of promotions as it can be a major headache for the people that live in the area.
