How was your Black Friday experience?

I think you guys are confusing "Door Busters" with "Black Friday". I've started to realize that they're starting to extend these sales to sell as much product as possible and in doing so they make up new days. Sales that begin Thursday are called "Door Busters" They initialize the start of the sales. "Black Friday" is the original holiday where the doors wouldn't open until early Friday morning. And now that we're in the electronics age, we've developed the "Cyber Monday" where all the sales are online.

I waited outside a local Sears from 2AM to 4AM, in hopes of getting one of the Toshiba 50' LED HDTVs advertised for $299.99. When they opened at 4AM, they had two in stock, but they wouldn't take less than $499.99 for one. So I waited two hours for nothing. Darn false advertising. :/

Did they say it was a misprint or something?

They said that the $299.99 price was for "chain" stores only, and that they're a "hometown" store. There aren't any chain Sears close to where I live... So why did they have the chain ads in their store? e_e

I didn't feel like battling the stores this year just I just shopped online. I mostly got dvd's dirt cheap but I did get Batman Arkam City GOTY Edition and Fallout New Vegas Ultimate Edition for $19.99 each. Two of my top 5 most wanted list. I'm happy with that.
