  • Our walmart has done the sale starting at 12:01 since we got a supercenter. It's not really a new thing here, but it's not advertised either.

  • I would have been pissed. I thought all Walmarts done it at the same time.

  • That's not really a scam. At worst, it's a bait and switch. If your local store was starting its deals early, they should have advertised it.

  • On tv It did say 5 am. Here in maryland. Wal-mart was open on thanksgiving all day.
    The elctronic sale was to start at 5 am.
    I don't shop on black friday. I use to work retail for 10yrs.
    I know how crazy it can get. Good luck to all the brave soul who
    did shop

  • The ads here show 12am for everything but the electronics. The electronics stuff went on sale at 5am.

  • a lot of stuff started at midnight, the big electronics started at 5. some of the stuff you have to stand in a special line for because they only have a few of a certain item (we did it for a laptop last year), people will be in those lines at 2-3 am waiting, and as soon as it is 5 they had the stuff out and you can pay. my wal mart was crazy already at 9-10 last night with people going for the midnight specials, but they could not check out til midnight. at midnight people were already there picking up some of the non-line 5am specials but they had to sit around and wait til 5am to check out.

  • I did the 12:01 shopping spree. I managed to get everything except the Lego sets I needed. Then one of the ladies here at work asked if I went on line to see if they had them and YEEHAW I got all 3 of them. I'll be getting them sometime next week shipped to me at work. Our paper listed some of the stuff starting at 5:00 and was in green border. The things on sale at 12:01 had a red border around it so it was really clear what time everything was on sale. Didn't have to hit the second sale so I got to go home and sleep for a couple of hours before heading out to the next one. Finally finished around 8:00 and then it's off to work until 5:00. Yeah it's like 4 hours of sleep in 2 days but it's well worth it to me. We have a total of 7 children living in our home with a bunch of grandkids to buy for as well.
