Any campers at your local Best Buy yet?

Just curious to see how bad things are in your area. I went by on Monday to see if they had a phone accessory for my gf's new phone and saw 4 tents. One with a couch and generator! Holy hell, I know they have deals but to give up a week of your life for one? Not worth it to me.

I was just struck by how soon they had set up. There were 4 tents in total. That's some serious dedication. I get the people that tent on Thanksgiving, sure. But by Monday? Guess they really want that $200 laptop.

That's what I was referring to in my other post. I get doing it the night before. I just don't understand how someone can piss away a week of their life for deals. Screw that.

I'm always tempted to make a Thanksgiving plate, drive to Bestbuy and park by the curb while I have the heat blasting and letting the aroma of great food spread there way! I do the blackfriday shopping but I won't camp. We have ppl doing it here when its like 20 degrees outside. Can't imagine the ppl up north that do it and its even colder

I've always thought that the time wasted to get black Friday deals may as well be spent at work. If you aren't missing work then kudos but for me skipping a day of work will usually cost me more than I will save.

I'm in LA right now and it's outrageous how many people are outside the Best Buy down the road.

Personally I would do it just for the experience and if there was something worth waiting for.

i went to best buy last night, no tents. from what i understand though, there's people camping outside now. unless i'm guaranteed the freshest, largest, most expensive home theater system in the universe for $.99, there's no way i'm spending THAT much time in a line. a few years ago, i did stand in line for about 2 hours for a clothing boutique. ended up buying some jeans. dumb.

now the thanksgiving tradition is to hit up the international auto show in sf after dinner.
