Beware of the Black Friday Hype

There are a ton of great deals to be had on Black Friday. However, as I mentioned in my Black Friday Shopping Tips post (#6), be sure the deals you snag are actually great deals. Here are a few deals in the Best Buy Black Friday ad that may not be the best deal you can get…

Helo TC Assault Touch-Controlled Helicopter $39.99 (reg. $59.99)
*I have seen this same item for less on other sites, and it not very highly rated.

Also, there are tons of TVs and Laptops in the ad, and there are bound to be more on sale in the store on Black Friday. I recommend choosing the one you want before you go and researching prices and reviews online to be sure you are getting the best deal, but also a high quality item. is a great place to compare prices and read reviews!

    Collin, can you please add that we can get 4% cash back through ShopAtHome?! Thanks!

  • Debbie Campbell says:

    Do you know if we can buy the special items online… I wonder if they will have them available?

    • emily says:

      I chatted with best buy today & was told some deals would be available for in store pick up. I bought the canon camera on the front page of their ad for only $20 more with a free 4gb memory card a free 8×8 shutterfly book & free expedited shipping plus 4% cash back thru shopathome.

  • Kathy says:

    Have you heard if anyone has a good deal on an Ipad on good friday? thanks!

  • Amy says:

    Does anyone know if the Nintendo 3DS that is on sale is of the same quality as the regular 3DS? I know some of the other electronic specials don’t have all the bells and whistles and wanted to check before I attempted to purchase one for $150! ; )

  • Nick says:

    Kathy, Walmart is selling an IPad and offering a $75 gift card with it.

    • Julie says:

      And…did read it correct? If you get there between 10-11pm Thursday evening you are guaranteed to get one…even if they have to ship it to you?

  • nancy says:

    Does anyone know if walmart will match best buy prices for black friday or during the weekend ad specials for best buy?

    • CopperKitten86 says:

      They will not match Black Friday ad’s, but last year I price matched a Kindle that was in Target’s “2-Day Ad.” I am not sure if their policy for that has changed or not.

      • holly says:

        I called my local WalMart and they said they would price match on black Friday. Might be worth calling to check your local wal mart ;)

  • Rita says:

    Anybody know if the TV will be available online? That’s the only deal I really want from BB

  • Mary says:

    What page is the ipod for 194 get 50 back listed on?

  • Tracy says:

    Will Walmart price match on Black Friday ?

  • Morgan says:

    Anybody know of smaller tv deals? Like 26 or 28 or maybe 32 inch??
    Do you think it is possible to get one for $100 or as close to that as possible?? or is that not reasonable? My husband and I both do $50 for Christmas- trying to see if we could combine and get something exciting for the hubby :) thanks for any input or suggestions :)

  • Angie says:

    Does anyone know if the Movers Guide coupon from the post office (if its still available) is applicable here? Anyone know what the coupon code is or how that works?

  • Darla says:

    With the tickets being handed out—does that mean its like what they are doing at Walmart? How exactly does it work?

    • Erin says:

      Best Buy does not guarantee items…..first come first served. They get very limited stock, so they give out tickets to people in line. They go down the line with however many tickets they have for that particular item. For example if they have 20 tickets for TV1, then the first 20 people in line that want that item get the tickets. There is only one line outside of the store. The cashiers will not sell you the particular ticket items without the designated ticket. Walmart on the other hand, in my area, has designated lines throughout the store for designated items. There are 3 items this year that they guarantee will be in stock, or they will give you a “rain check” that will be honored before Christmas. HTH

  • Linda Ferraro says:

    They never have enough stock

  • Cynthia Dunn says:

    Is there any way to strike a deal with Best Buy or competitors to purchase the TV on Best Buys black Friday advertisement before next week? I’d buy it now but I can’t go wait in line!

    • patrick says:

      as far as best buy- when i called to corporate, they said that they will price match competitor offers BUT you must go to the store DURING the black friday sale timeframe (if there is one on the ad) and wait in customer service line for the price match. Usually you end up out of luck if you are not there right when best buy and the competitor open, because you have to wait in line forever….. just an fyi from past experience

      • patrick says:

        PLUS- Best Buy Premier Silver has early online access to ALL best buy advertised deals GUARENTEED. Any item in the ad will be available during the early access sale – and you MUST be a silver member to get the special deal – I believe its tuesday for silver – online or BY PHONE!

        • Lucy says:

          Bestbuy’s premier silver members will be able to see the ad on Sunday Nov. 18, and they will be able to shop for items online or through the phone on Monday Nov. 19 I believe you can start shopping at 10 am.

  • Kathy says:

    I am a verizon customer and I want an ipad that I can add to my verizon service. I need to check into this further but the verizon rep told me that I would need the ipad that is set up for cellular, not just wifi. Is this correct? He he just trying to up sell me?

    • Karen says:

      U really don’t need the 3G Wifi is so readily available. Don’t spend the extra it doesn’t pay unless u purchase a refurbished directly from Apple store online then it’s a good deal.

  • jrcope79 says:

    Is that the best price on a 55 inch TV?

  • Lisa says:

    In the past for the tv s I’ve gone on Wednesday before thanksgiving and have got almost the same deal I’m talking maybe I’ve paid like $10 to $30 more which to me is worth it and they are in stock because the stores are setting up for Black Friday. It’s been great so many of my friends and I have done this at best buy and target and has worked out great

  • Cara says:

    Does Walmart give out tickets on Black Friday? If so when
