The only thing I have seen is there was an article posted that Target is not going to have great deals this year. I didn't have a chance to read whole article. I am getting excited though and can't wait until ads start leaking out. I love BF shopping.

We'll be at the Magic Kingdom on Black Friday. I wonder if there will be any deals at the park?

I haven't heard anything yet but I am actively watching/listening!

My husband wants to get a 40"-43" plasma tv for our bedroom. If prices are amazing for a quality tv we may get one but I told him not to get his hopes up! Other than that, we're not really in the market for any Black Friday deals because our holiday shopping for family is already done...though I LOVE looking at everything!

was this the article you are talking about?
http://in.reuters.com/article/2012/0...8K5GVX20120905

because the way I read it Target is going to have the typical Black Friday sale just not as big as it has been in the past. I know last year they tried competing with Walmart and staying open till midnight...it was a DISASTER at our Target, the store was empty by about 6 pm and corporate sent out a mass email to start sending team members home to minimize the payroll expenditure since they were not making the sales they thought they would...My husband works for Target as a Team Leader and he said in a meeting they were told they would start discussing Black Friday strategy next month.

I can't wait! I love going out on Black Friday!!

Can't wait! It's my favorite holiday!

For the past few years Target has not impressed me in the least...but then again I have not been in the market for TVs, point n shoot cameras, etc.

It'll be closer to mid October until you start to hear about deals and the beginning of November until you start to see the ads for the bigger stores.

I think this is the first year I don't care about black friday. I used to love running around bright and early getting deals but the last few years have just been blah. There are too many people and I can often get the same deal or better either before or after black friday.

Plus we're doing a smaller Christmas this year as we're moving next June, and my son is at the age where he just doesn't need/want a lot, so I think maybe that's playing into it as well.

I think it'll be the first year I just grab a few things online and don't go out at all.

I hope the strategy from last year is not followed again this year. I did not Ming staying up all night but there were so many people! Lots of rookies who slowed the "pros" down. I also found that I did a lot less window shopping/impulse buying. I stuck to the list and got out of the store.
