Later we went back to see if anything was left and there was the pots and pans we had went for left, and the same price there were only suppose to be from 5am-11am, but we got them, and im not complaining, lol. Just wished i would have known that at 3am this morning lol

  • We went to Walmart! We got a blu ray dvd player for $78 dollars.I hate that store but you can not beat the prices. I would not advise bringing kids there though.

  • Yep, we got up at 2 and hubby stood in line for a laptop for his business for 2 hours, I got a $50 coat for $15, a KitchenAid mixer (normally around $250) for half price, hubby got a work coat for half price and coveralls for less than half price, and some other little stuff. It was worth it for us!

  • I hadn't intended on going anywhere today. but I went to print smething and realized I was out of ink. So I ran to walmart. But I realiezd the ink I needed (just black) was 21$ and they had brand new HP printer/scanner/copiers that came with black and color ink for 35$. and the refill ink on this printer is only 13$. So I got a new printer :)

  • It was totally worth it for me. I went to HEB Plus and got a Power Wheels Ford Truck for my son that is normall $400 for $250. I also went to Walmart and got a $8 memory card, $3 Marvel Comics hoodie (they were out of the $3 pjs!) and a transformers 2 pack of toys. Thats all I got and came home but it saved us a lot. This year it was not crowded at all here. I was really surprised. There were maybe 20 people waiting in line at both stores when they opened which isn't really more than what would normally be there.

  • wal-mart was awful today. People was very rude. They were pushing, cutting in lines, bumping into us, running over our feet, and only one or two said excuse me. We got there at 4:30 and got two laptops for 399.00 a piece I think. My hubby left and went to work and it was me and my sister trying to not get trampled. We went to the stage and I found my son a 50.00 telescope and a target practice thingy that when you shoot the balls they float in air. It was also 50.00, but It was buy one get one free so I only paid 54.00.
