Over the last three weeks I comparative priced 3 items I considered buying on Black Friday. Based on all variables, Target had the best prices before Black Friday. So on Friday at about 1:30 I doubled checked Sams - they were still the most expensive. I then went to Target and the price had gone up on all three items.   They were still cheaper than Sams - but the price actually went up.

Over the next  few weeks the items will go on sale and I will buy them - but once again Black Friday proves to be  one big con.  I am certain that on a few electronic items a handful of people got a good deal.  But like I experienced with this computer - the Black Friday price was the normal sales price just a few weeks after Black Friday.

Keep up the good work, BWC!

I agree the only place I went was a store that buys others unsold items and marks them down about 40-50%. Then they had 20% off the whole basket got some good deals. Otherwise I don't bother.
