    Any clue on how much money to bring if I plan on being a top customer out in front of the line? Ive never really been a person to camp in front of the store, but im thinking about it. I remember doing it a couple years ago, but didn't actually get to the front of the line. It was for best buy and they let the first 10 or so go inside for 20mins or something like that to browse for what they wanted. Does frys do that as well?

    This is going to be my 4th year of camping at Fry's. Fry's doesn't really care about customer relations, as noted by their lack of line management during zero hour Friday morning [about an hour before the store opens]. This is when everyone starts cutting everyone else, fights start [ fun to watch], and women start showing up. The only really guaranteed spot is if you are first, as you can't really cut the first people. When the store does open, a massive panic starts towards the 3-foot wide door. Last year my family and I [my 2 sons and myself] nearly got trampled outside the store. Long chains of curse words are shouted, and you are squeezed like never before. Also, people never pick up their trash from where they camped out, so you have cans everywhere and random garbage littering the ground. Inside the sore, the associates don't even help out [no offense associates, you guys just are mad as hell at everyone trying to get the cheap items].  
     
    One more thing.  
    THE FUCKING REGISTERS ALWAYS CRASH! YOU SIT IN LINE FOR NO LESS THAN 3 DAMN HOURS. Fry's needs to fix this.  
     
    However, it is always fun, and I'm all up for going every year.

    Safety first, at Fry's? Have you seen how cluttered their aisles can get? i.e. the pallets of crap and such? That used to be one of our usual recommendations to help avoid all of the liability (and workers') claims that Fry's had.

    except for 2007 when we got it like a week early, fry's has been good about concealing the ad until thanksgiving morning, and even that is only the 2 page thing. Last year I didn't even get the full 8-page thing until about 3am Friday morning WHILE I was waiting in line. lets hope this year everyone's out at walmart or best buy.

    I was in and out of frys in 35 minutes last year, everyone says your crazy to camp out really early, however i pitched a tent and put my comfy recliner camping chairs in it and just slept, got up and ran into the store, got my 52 inch lcd tv and blue ray player and was at the checkout as soon as i could get there. Everyone complains about waiting in line for 3 hours to pay.... well i was at walmart laughing at the crazy people 45 minutes after frys opened.


    I dont think we will see the ad until thanksgiving day, like usual

    supposedly there will be a good notebook, a decent desktop and a netbook. free printers and some monitors. i've heard all the samsung led's will be about 50% off, and then i've heard all there'll be is stupid viore tv's. the fact about black friday is, no matter where you go, you're going to wait in line for 4+ hours, come close to dying multiple times and probably won't get what you're looking for. and the stuff in ad's, be it fry's or bestbuy or target, is all worthless crap for a worthless price that you're just going to return in a week anyway... and to the douchebag up there complaining about customer service, you try working black friday with 2k+ customers all making a mad dash for your department at once. i can't even tell you how many times i got ran into with carts last year and it was so busy we were standing on the gondolas because there wasn't room on the floor.

    I just came back from frys and talk to 4-5 different customer service counters and they all said no leaks to even the workers. So, "Don't expect anything till tomorrow morning newspaper ad" that's what 1 of them said to me as I was leaving. I guess I'll buy a paper tomorrow and if anything good I'll post back here. LOL funny story is i was talking to one of them and they said someone was trying to start camping 2 nights ago and got kicked out haha. Crazy to camp out 3-4 nights ahead of Black Friday.

    I don't understand why Fry's won't release the ad early. Newegg and Amazon have started their sales. I just reviewed the Newegg ad will check Amazon before I pull the trigger on a case and two hard drives, maybe more. Come on Fry's...you snooze, you loose. www.blackfriday.info

    The Thursday ad in Atlanta is identical to Dallas. Nothing worth waking up early for. Oh well. :(. Maybe tomorrow's ad will be better. I'll get to the store when I get thefre. No need to stand out in the cold...not this year.

    my uncle is a printer for the san jose mercury news. ill be getting the ad at 2am cali. time. i drive out to pick it up, scan it, post it, and then im back in line with friends. IF i dont post it, its because its not worth it. for some odd reason im feeling like best buy tonight.....

    ATTENTION FRYS BLACK FRIDAY SHOPPERS-
    I'd just like to say that most of you are sad, pathetic consumer cattle that no matter how much you deny it, are the bitch in the retailer-consumer relationship. If you have ever stood in line for one of the Black Friday Ad's you are a cheap motherfucker with absolutely no life. Same goes for the lazy fucks who come in at noon expecting us to have the ad items still. If one more of you asks for a rain check or a price match anytime this weekend I'm going to go apeshit and start swinging. If you stand in line every year its because that cheap piece of shit you bought the year before is already broken, take your cheap ass somewhere else we don't need your business, the ad items lose the store money anyways, we don't fucking care. And go ahead and tell me you'll never shop at fry's again, you WILL be back no matter what we do t o you, once again, YOU are the bitch in this relationship. Enjoy your weekend not showering, waiting in retarted long lines for garbage laptops, and other cheap bullshit that will probably break in a year, you won't buy a warranty, the manufact. won't fix it, you get mad and make yourself look like a retard. Then next year you'll just start this never ending cycle over again. The most entertaining part of the holiday season is watching dumbfucks like you wait like junkies for your cheap electronic fix. You should all be ashamed of yourselves, for you truly have absolutely no life, do everyone a favor and just off yourselves before someone does it for you. Cheers

    And by the way, YES, the saturday ad is ALWAYS WAY BETTER. How many years does it take before you dumbfucks get this? You need to stop taking whatever drugs your on before you can become a productive member of society.
