    Thanks. Do you have any suggestions for which stores to target for online thanksgiving and black fri blockbusters? We always shop at the stores but will be at WDW this yr. - one of those old school ppl who never shop online and don’t really know which stores has the blockbusters avail online.

    Honestly? Target the stores with the items you want to buy. Some stores might make sale items available that Monday morning. Others might start at 3 AM Thanksgiving morning.

    I get a lot of stuff at Kohls online, but not specifically for Christmas. They usually have great deals on appliances, their big one blankets and stuff like that.
    IIRC they start their sales Wednesday before Thanksgiving.

    Thanks, we do shop at kohl’s so that might be a good one. I guess to katieelder’s point... I always thought most of the blockbusters were in store only.

    I'm pretty sure I got some doorbusters online last year that would have been in store only in the past.
    I'm sure there are exclusive in-store ones but I think in recent years they've been made available online too. Not every store, I got stuff at Target last year and never stepped foot in the store.

    These days most door busters are available online. Target comes to mind for that. It usually just a handful of items that are in store only these days.

    Question about the black friday related sales...I just recently learned about a day like black friday but its specifically for travel, big sales on flights, hotels, vacation and so on. Its called "travel tuesday". You got black friday, cyber monday and then travel tuesday, my question is...is this legit? Have any of you guys that follow these black friday sales heard or even follow this sale as well. Just curious if it's worth investing time or if it even has really good deals like black friday and cyber monday. Thanks

    We're cruising on Royal Caribbean next summer. Based on the cruise websites, they have a big Black Friday sale that gives discounts on drink packages, excursions, etc. I have no idea if there are also breaks on actual bookings, since we've already booked.

    I want the best price on a Roomba for my parents. I'll be watching as the ads come out.

    Thanks for starting this thread, OP. I always look forward to Black Friday but the last few years I did not buy much. Our tv is acting strange, starting to have a dark line at the top so I think we might be looking for a tv. But I do not plan to wait in long lines. I will try to go the online route instead.

    Last year we booked amazing six flag amusement park deal with accommodation at 60 per cent off. Only found out about it by reading old posts on this forum.

    Target, Walmart, Amazon. Well, Wal-Mart last, because they don't typically ship the super special priced ones. Target and Wal-Mart usually offer two day shipping, and Amazon does it you're a Prime member. If you're not, and haven't been for a while, you should be able to get a seven day free trial.

    Thanks to the recommendations of great, helpful people on the budget board, I bought a 43" TCL television earlier this year. Decent price, good quality except the sound - which a helpful Best Buy rep explained is because the speakers don't face outward.
