For those Black Friday shoppers -- what was the best deal you found? Biggest beef?
One that I missed was at a local WalMart. There were several people there that were able to get the LeapPad 1 for $20! (Someone had mispriced the stack *intended* to be the original Leapster Explorers. WalMart honored the price.) This is a game system that we own and that I really love for its versatile use. While there is a newer version, if you have a chance to grab this at a decent price difference, you may want to review the newer features to determine if it is worth the extra expense.
I was not after any major purchase, but appreciated some deep savings on small things (that add up!) Overall, the crowds I dealt with appeared to be in good spirits. One of our family members working at Best Buy shared that the crowds there were pretty good -- but they had a huge police presence on hand that likely contributed to everyone remaining more orderly. The line to get in the store, however, was long with folks still waiting to get in about 45 min after opening. Old Navy appeared to be the same as I drove by. I'm guessing that they had reached capacity and needed some folks to leave before more could enter?
My complaint of the night -- PAINFULLY slow lines at Kohl's for check out. At 3 a.m. people had been waiting in line to check out since 12:45 a.m. I simply did not have that stamina at that point although there were some deals I'd hoped to pick up to combine with coupon, discount savings, and their 15% "Kohls cash" for every $50 spent.
All in all -- I had a positive experience and was pleased with those items that I did purchase.
Hope your overall take away was the same!
