Typically stores will get special computers for Black Friday that they don't normally carry in the store. These computers are similar to others they have in stock, but most of the time they are made with cheaper parts to be sold cheaper in order to be profitable for everyone. I would not go for one of these, so you will never see me sitting outside Best Buy missing football on Thanksgiving Day.
I have found that the best deals that I take advantage of take place as the Deal of the Day at Best Buy the Thursday before Thanksgiving. Last year I bought a beautiful 42" LG LED TV with 3D and a slim design. This year I saw and purchased an Asus laptop with an Intel Core i3 processor with 4 GB of RAM for $249.
Problem: I cam home with:
I took the computer back and made it a point to complain to a manager about the bait and switch tactics. I decided that I would prefer to get the Asus laptop with the Core i5 that was on sale for $379 instead. I had to wait a little bit for the manager to come over and told him that I didn't appreciate the bait and switch tactics of that offer. It appears that they did not have any of the laptop that I originally came in for, but I told the manager that I would prefer the one with the Intel Core i5 instead. He asked me what would I like him to do for me. He said he couldn't lower the Intel Core i5 laptop to $249, so I asked him what he could do and he offered to take $30 off. I decided to go with that.
