The penalty of shopping on time...

I went to Best Buy, not so early this morning to try to take advantage of their 'Black Friday' sales. I was semi-successful - I managed to get 2 of 3 things I was looking for. My Spoils: a 20" TV for $70 (yes that is correct) and a 50-disc spool of DVD+R disks for $3 (Again that is correct) - both after rebates. Of course, I am not sure how much my wife will like it when I walk in the door with a TV later tonight.

The item that I missed was a $30, 256MB flash memory card for my Digital Camera. At first, I was upset that they were sold out - those normally go for around $45-60, so this was a good deal. But then the guy behind me told me that he had bought some at staples this morning for only $10!!! (Makes me wish I had gotten up at 6am!!!). I guess if I wait long enough after the holidays the prices will go down far enough that I will be more affordable.

I guess you can take-advantage of the early pre-holiday sales, or buy stuff after the buzz is over when they (presumably) have inventory to burn.
